The game takes a few pages from the book of Sonic the Hedgehog, namely speed and out of reach secrets. The main character dashes through open levels littered with the occasional obstacle or enemies. There are springboards to send you skyward, half-pipes to run around, and hills that propel you in many directions. The game has a fairly fast pace but is not averse to slowing down and letting you explore. In fact, there are several hidden areas you can find if you take the time to look. Did you see Brad's name inscribed in the stones?
As you explore the sleek worlds in this game, you'll come across a few items, namely floating swirls and trophies. Swirls refill your health and give you an extra life (measured in Pants, of course) every 100. Trophies can be collected and viewed from the main room of the game for info about other Armor Games flash titles.

Analysis: The first thing I noticed about Fancy Pants Adventure is that it feels like a very complete and polished game, even though there's only one world available at the moment. The stages are vast and open and just beg to be explored. The physics are very well-done and the main character is smoothly animated. You can perform some spectacular acrobatics as you launch him around the stages. The music, composed by Geier Arnold, is equally superb and fits the game's atmosphere like a glove.
