Fancy Pants is fast paced platformer with an interesting story line, multiple gameplay mechanics, and lots of extras to keep players entertained for hours. The game definitely includes everything that has made it one of the most popular flash based platformers on the internet.
The game is primarily a platformer and includes the traditional gameplay mechanics one would expect, like jumping on enemies to kill them. The game also includes sliding and wall jumping, which varies the gameplay.
The speed of the main character is really fast. In my opinion, the speed is a little too fast. The character builds up speed really quickly and it is very enticing to just keep running and not bother with collecting anything or exploring the levels. I was constantly debating whether to build up speed or stop and make sure I wasn't missing anything.
The levels are designed really well and have many things to collect and places to explore, giving the game a lot of replay value. In total, there are 8 levels in the game, with each level having 2 bonus levels. The levels vary, some including water and loops to run around.
One of my favorite aspects of the game is the ability to customize the appearance of the main character. There are over 140 accessories to choose from and some of them are really funny. The levels and accessories all share a hand drawn look, which gives the game a really nice feel. The app also includes a "Fancy Arcade" where gamers can play mini-games such as racing. There are even leader boards for the arcade.
Fancy Pants is a solid platformer with a ton of content. The number of items to collect each level will surely keep players occupied for hours. The speed is a little to fast, but besides that the game is really well designed.
