  1. None of the puzzle modes are individually at the pinnacle of the genre, however, and the trial-and-error-based gameplay might only appeal to enthusiasts.
  2. Great in short bursts and solving the main puzzles can be a real blast, however the game fails to deliver any serious replay value once you complete them and setting high scores will eventually become dull and tedious.
  3. There's nothing cripplingly wrong with It's Mr Pants - far from it. But it's basically a simple case of the sum of its parts not reaching its true potential.
  4. The puzzles are incredibly easy at first, but they grow in complexity at a good clip. It's odd, tricky and funny. [Jan 2005, p.140]

    Mr. Pants the character deserves to star in more than just a puzzle game. He's a goofy, charming product of British humor, so we fully expect a Mr. Pants platform game or (even better) RPG in the near future. Please?
  6. It's Mr. Pants is a puzzle game that doesn't entertain because it requires far too much effort to just get into the groove of it.
  7. Mildly addictive yet limited fun. [Nov 2004, p.90]
  8. Many players will quickly fall in love with the line-drawn artwork that's used in the menus and backgrounds, as well as the barnyard sound clips that are the game's sound effects, but, beyond those aspects, It's Mr. Pants is merely an average puzzler with a limited array of features.
  9. Cleverest when at its most minimal, It's Mr Pants is a little too convoluted and coy a brain-tease, destined to live in the shadow of purer designs. [March 2005, p.93]

    WOW! This is amazing. It starts off pretty easy but quickly gets more complex. The rules are very simple but offer a deceptively complex WOW! This is amazing. It starts off pretty easy but quickly gets more complex. The rules are very simple but offer a deceptively complex gameplay mechanic. I really love the hardest wipeout game, it's a real challenge to do it in the time limit. Full Review »
