The Fancy Pants Adventures Trailer and Screenshots

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
We announced The Fancy Pants Adventures back in November, and yes, it really is the title for a new 2D side-scrolling platformer heading to XBLA.

The Fancy Pants Adventures casts players in the role of the game’s hero – a hand-drawn stick figure named Fancy Pants Man who embarks on a mission to rescue his kidnapped sister, Cutie Pants. Sporting his trademark orange pants and a Mohawk, Fancy Pants Man begins his journey in Squiggleville, racing through unique open levels where he must defeat challenging enemies and overcome clever obstacles. Along the way, Fancy Pants will need to utilize a number of tricks and even unlock the ability to wield weapons in order to aid him on his quest to overcome the Pirates.

The visuals have a similar hand drawn style to the two free Flash PC games Fancy Pants Adventures: World 1 released in 2006, and Fancy Pants Adventures: World 2 released in 2008. The console version of The Fancy Pants Adventures takes all of the worlds from these two games, and adds an entirely new third world. The game will also feature up to four-player co-op play. The screenshots include both two-player and four-player co-op.
