The newest game out on Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade is something I (and many others) have been looking forward to for a long time. Fancy Pants Adventures started its humble life as a flash game which circulated the web way back in 2006. Since then, gamers have helped Fancy Pants Man on his quest over 100 million times. The game, which features hand-drawn animation, has Fancy Pants Man running, jumping, and sliding through more than 20 levels of platforming action. This new console version of Fancy Pants Adventures marks the highly-anticipated release of the third episode of fancy pants action and boasts updated visuals (compare the flash version, above, with the console version, below) and several multiplayer modes like Coop, Racing, King of the Hill, and Tournaments.
Like it’s browser-based brethren, the console port of Fancy Pants Adventures will feature tons of secrets, unlockables, and customization options for FPM, including over 40 weapons. The game was developed by Over the Top Games in cooperation with Brad Borne, creator of the series, and EA2D, a small team within Electronic Arts. It’s up now on Playstation Network for 9.95 AUD, 11.50 NZD, or 9.99 USD and Xbox Live Arcade for 800 MS points. If you’ve never ventures into Fancy Pants land or if you’re wondering what awaits our stick-figure hero next, head on over to the Fancy Pants site and see what you’re missing. If you aren’t playing this title, I assure you that you are missing out. Run fast and run fancy, my friends.
