Fancy Pants Adventures PLAY IT NOW
Fancy Pants is a free flash based platformer with excellent flow and beautiful hand-crafted graphics. Although graphics in this case doesn't seem like a very fitting term, perhaps beautiful hand-crafted art. The sound is also fairly solid and does the trick quite nicely.
However what I must truly emphasize in this game is the flow, the animations in it just look beautiful, although there can be some choppy moments when the animations don't flow together as smoothly, when you see this thing in motion it can simply be a thing of beauty. The timing between jumps and ramps just seems, to me at least, truly natural and intuitive.
Perhaps I'm too young to truly appreciate them, being a mere 18 years of age, but to me, the enjoyment I get from Sonic and Mario's 2D platforming just can't even begin to compare with the sheer amount of pleasure I get from playing this painfully short title over and over again.
Now for the bullet points, 'cause if you wanted a ton of horridly long wordy text you'd play a japanese turn-based rpg.
