The stick-figure star of The Fancy Pants Adventures assumes his moniker seriously. During this cartoonist platformed, you unlock latest weapons, hats, and, of course, pants. Our actor wears pink, purple, and plaid with panache, and he slides along curved slopes with adequate style. He loves to remains in motion, and some parts experiences pleasantly effortless as you leap from springboards into the air and coast down steep slopes similar to a gangly Tommy. Unluckily, the brakes are sometimes insert on in traditional platforming parts, in which the slipperiness that creates few stages such a joy turns a frustrating liability. The clunky combat experiences equally out of place in a game that relies on accelerate and momentum to deliver its thrills. Nevertheless, The Fancy Pants Adventures is a fun and cheap romp by various colorful worlds, and including a buddy or three to the merge opens up few welcome chances for cooperation and hysterical harassment in same measure.
Your avatar might only be a stick form, but he is an agile one. As in most 2D platformers, you travel from left to right, jumping across chasms, navigating swinging platforms, and nabbing collectibles. However, this man of the nice britches is not message with only these pedestrian antics. As you function down hills and across ramps, you increase momentum to zoom by half-loops and fly by the air without a care in the world. The way your spindly hero somersaults throughout long leaps or flails his legs in freefall includes to the sensation of careless freedom. For that case, so do the easy but vivid surrounds, which appears as if they were crafted through a precocious 9-year-old kid with crayons and colored pencils and then linked to the refrigerator with magnets. That might not sound similar to much of a compliment, but the hand-drawn appear of the levels is an excellent backdrop for the game's quick beat.
Both the chief Story mode and the two extra worlds you unlock frequently create excellent utilize of this momentum-based time. You might slip smoothly from one looping function to the following, bounce onto a springboard, and then leap from wall to wall, snatching up squiggles and periodically dropping on a spider's head to rid the globe of this 8-legged menace once and for complete.
