Description

Rare's website mascot, Mr. Pants, stars in his very own video game for the Game Boy Advance. He's prepared hundreds of fiendish puzzles to scramble your brain!

Pieces fall onto the game board with only a limited time to place them. To clear the pieces, players will need to make shapes that are at least a 2x3 rectangle, or bigger rectangles and squares. Three different modes of play are available - Puzzle, Wipeout, and Marathon - and progressing through the puzzles will earn players assorted bizarre underwear-clad artwork.

Trivia

Development

Mr. Pants replaced Donkey Kong when Rareware left the Nintendo fold during the games original production. Titled Coconut Crackers, the Kong title also had a more 3D appearance to its graphics. When Microsoft picked up the company, and THQ the distribution rights to all Rare GBA titles, Mr. Pants took over, and the 3D design was replaced with a more friendly 2D interface.

Protagonist

Mr. Pants was the mascot of Rare's original website and previously had cameos in Jet Force Gemini and Banjo-Tooie. In Britain, pants means underpants which is why Mr. Pants is just wearing underpants.
