DescriptionThe Fancy Pants Adventures is the third main game in the series and the first to appear on a console, following the two freeware PC Flash titles. Players control the character Fancy Pants to rescue his sister Cutie Pants who has been kidnapped by pirates. Just like the original games, Fancy Pants is a stick figure against a drawn environment and he moves at a fast speed. The movement options are fairly identical to the earlier games; Fancy Pants is able to slide, jump on top of enemies to take them out, use trampolines and loops for air acrobatics, and he can also wall jump and hang onto ledges.
A bedroom acts as a hub where the different game modes can be selected and rewards are stored. There is a training room to practice the game mechanics and unlockable single-player challenges with different medals (race against time, play golf, get a certain number of points for doing acrobatics). The main one is the Story mode. It consists of different levels to locate the missing sister. Each world has a different visual design, with themes based on pirates, ninjas or ice for instance. The goal is always to reach the exit. The player is encouraged to explore to locate golden stars, regular shells and special shells. There are also hidden NPCs that offer a short challenge and other hidden challenges usually accessed through doors. Completing these unlocks new items in a wardrobe and also weapons. Once weapons have been found, such as a sword or a pencil, the character can do stronger and air attacks. Fancy Pants has a certain amount of lives, he can take a number of hits and there are also a number of bosses to beat.
Multiplayer is supported for up to four players locally or online, in free-for-all or cooperative gameplay. The story mode can be played cooperatively on a single screen. There is an unlockable King of the Hill mode, where players brawl with weapons on a single screen. As a bonus, the HD versions of the first two games, The Fancy Pants Adventure: World 1 and The Fancy Pants Adventure: World 2, can be unlocked.
