Fancy Pants is a series of platforming flash games created by Brad Borne. They feature a stickman known as Fancy Pants Man, who is minimally drawn other than his spiky hair and colored pants. The first game, World 1, was submitted March 14, 2006. The demo for World 2 was submitted March 13, 2007, and the full version was submitted January 17, 2008
The games are unique in that they have interactive menus. The games play similarly to other traditional platformers, including running, jumping to attack, and wall jumps. A bar on the top left corner of the screen shows health, which can be restored by collecting swirls. Collecting 100 swirls grants an extra life. Bosses appear at the end of each world, and are the focus of the minimal story. Both games have collectible trophies that improve replay value, and World 2 features different pants colors that can be collected.
