    The biggest issue probably lies with the not being able to get into any games on the multiplayer, but it doesn't really feel like you're missing out. The single player is strong enough on its own that you don't feel like you're losing anything significant, and of course you may be able to get in yourself.

    Original design and a quirky style keep Fancy Pants enjoyable throughout, but some significant features need a little tweaking before this sketchy hero can stand with the big platforming heavyweights. [July 2011, p.94]

    Even though it isn't a long game, Fancy Pants Adventures oozes with charm.

    The bottom line is that running around doing flips and tricks is incredibly fun, so you should check out this $10 or 800 Microsoft point adventure.

    While The Fancy Pants Adventures isn't groundbreaking, it is fun to play. The game challenges you with a variety of content and achievements (and unlockables) to obtain, which makes the overall package worth your time and money. You simply can't go wrong with this side-scroller.

    A platformer with a distinct graphic style. Gameplay-wise it resembles Sonic as the character can accelerate to great speeds. Real fun starts in multiplayer mode. [August 2011, p.72]
  8. The controls are fiddly but the platforming is fun. [Aug 2011, p.110]

    A game aimed at platforms fans, which will enjoy the game but notice this is not one especially brilliant, which is a shame, considering the great Flash version.

    If you can adapt to the control eccentricities, there's plenty to recommend, but you might find it too much like hard work at times.

    Very fun, funny and entertaining game for 4 players. I liked it a lot, and I don't even like platformers. I recommend this to anyone who has friends to play with. Full Review »
