Until Neatorama reader Evan sent me the link, I've never even heard of Fancy Pants Adventure, a neat Flash game by Brad Borne. Goes to show what I live in a cave or something. Oh, the things I've been missing out on!
Fancy Pants Adventure (World 1 and 2) is a platform game (or platformer
- for you who don't know, it's a game genre characterized by jumping from platforms to platforms and avoiding obstacles). But in the midst of hundreds of platformers, it truly stands out.
First, there's the cute stick figure (the guy wears a fancy pants, hence the name of the game), then there's a trippy music by Geier Arnold and Tommy LM. The game play is simple (a must for uncoordinated guy like me) and fun.
