Fancy Pants Adventures: World 1 is a platformer flash game that was developed by Bard Borne & Geier Arnold and released on October 18, 2006.
Although Flash was discontinued on January 12 2021, Fancy Pants Adventures is still playable through BlueMaxima’s Flashpoint, the Supernova Player as well as The Fancy Pants Adventure: World 1 mobile app.
Fancy Pants Adventures is an action platformer game in which the player controls Fancy Pants Man, a stickman with orange pants and spiky hair. The player can move Fancy Pants Man quickly and run up curved walls in order to move to higher platforms and ascend through the level. There are a few different enemy types such as spiders that crawl along the ground of platforms and the “dragon bird things” that can fly. Both of these enemies can be eliminated but jumping and landing on top of them.
The game features three levels, which offer a good degree of exploration both horizontally and vertically, the final of which features a boss battle. The boss is an angry penguin, who the player must defeat by making him run into the wall and get stuck, allowing them to jump on top of him. Throughout each of the levels, many squiggles can be found and collected by the player, which will restore their health by a small amount. The player takes damage when they make contact with an enemy in a way that isn’t stamping on them from above.
