Fancy Pants (by Chillingo) was originally a successful flash platformer game only, but is now available for the iPhone and iPad, has extensive gameplay, a funny storyline, lots of fun collectibles, and all for the ridiculously low price of only $0.99. Having never heard of the Fancy Pants game before, it was a pleasure to open this iOS Universal game up on my iPhone and not only meet Fancy Pants Man, but become Fancy Pants Man. Who is Fancy Pants Man? He is an acrobatic wonder who traverses hundreds of platforms walking up walls, hanging onto platforms with a few fingers, and ultimately travelling through many different levels on a mission to find his sister, yes, wait for it….”Cutie Pants,” would you expect any other name? As far as platform games go, this is by far one of the very best that I have ever experienced, with loads of gameplay, customizable clothes/weapons for Fancy Pants Man (140 hats, pants, and weapons with an unknown number of combinations), and an goofy storyline, not to mention an overall fresh and imaginative plot that you play through.

Fancy Pants Man has his own “crib” that houses his wardrobe, training facility, and arcade machine that has numerous re-playable mini-games, which would be considered the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae in terms of extra game content. The level gameplay starts out with your hero running, jumping, travelling up walls, and killing enemies ranging from pesky spiders to a pirate captain with a long, whipping rainbow beard (his weapon of choice). There are cut scenes along the way where Fancy Pants Man talks to various protagonist and antagonist characters in his quest to rescue his sister. One feature that I really loved in this game was the doodle-like artwork and overall silliness of the story itself. If there is one platform game for you get this year — get Fancy Pants, you will not be disappointed. Check out all our iPhone app reviews. Crazy Mike
