XBLA Review - 'The Fancy Pants Adventures'
13 August 2011
Summary: Based on The Fancy Pants Adventures flash game, this classic side-scrolling platformer features a unique, hand-drawn style while taking all of the exciting adventures from the original two games and now adds an entirely new world, all-new story and new modes designed exclusively for consoles.
Excerpt: The Fancy Pants Adventures is a lot like sweatpants; a bit flimsy and aimless, not willing to fully grasp the concept of being pants, but still giving it a shot. The fabric holding the game together originated in a Flash-based title of the same name.

Pros: + Cute visuals, + Easy to Play, + A completionist's dream!

Five years ago, sprinting and wall-jumping among unadorned static platforms — collecting squiggles and power-sliding through spiders — might’ve been a satisfying distraction. Nowadays, you’ll wonder if that’s all there is. Unfortunately, the answer is “pretty much.
Cons: - Sleep-inducing; even bosses do little more than pace back and forth., - Inconsistent platform edges; co-op camera zooms too far out, and slowpokes are executed in co-op., ? In multiplayer, how come only hosts can save and unlock Achievements?
Kleine Strichmännchen erobern die Xbox 360. Mit The Fancy Pants Adventures wird die Next-Gen Konsole zum virtuellen Malblock. Liebevolle, handgemalte Zeichnungen erwachen zum Leben und bringen euch in ein verrücktes und
Excerpt: A l'instar de Super Meat Boy, Fancy Pants Adventures profite de son relatif succès sur le Net pour venir faire un tour du côté des consoles. Mais ce jeu de plates-formes aura-t-il le même succès que le bout de bidoche ?
