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.
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.
