Awesome.....this game brings back memory of Sonic

So after reading the review of the guy below me. I didn't experience many of the issues that he experience such has freezing in the swim level and getting stuck in the corner. I wish you could stomp on your enemies or something. As I said, this game remind me of Sonic the Hedgehog, I keep feeling that when I get up to speed running I should be able to roll through the enemies with some sort of fancy pants attack like you were able to roll through enemies in Sonic.

The game play was very smooth and enjoyable, the controls were a bit loose but I think that was on purpose because they fit the game well in general.

Improvements: I'm not really clear why I am able to jump through the bottom of all platforms. It make the game too easy. It would be much more challenging to have to wall jump, flip etc to get around them. It is ok to be able to jump through some but many times it didn't even seem intuitive to jump through them as I was the challenge of as I said wall jump and flip around them.
At any rate, great game and I look forward to playing the finished product.

Hold down to slide, of you're sliding fast enough you can plow through baddies, hold down while on a slope, or landing while going backwards to roll, again, I'd you're going fast enough, you'll go through baddies. I'm not sure what you mean about not being able to stomp baddies, though. If you hold down or jump, you even get a boost!

Very interesting thoughts about the platforms, though. Later levels do have more solid walls and less platforms, though, I think you'll enjoy the extra challenge later in the game.

Can't wait for Fancy Pants Xbox live!

The thing I love most about Fancy Pants is it's combined elements of speed running, platforming, and serene music and backgrounds.

This is simply a game that requires the player to simply...."Go with the Flow....."

A few glitches you should work on before releasing the final product.

1. The "Invisible" glitch.
2. Wall Jumping needs to be activated more easily.
3. Swimming has always been a problem in gaming. You freeze if you hit the bottom.
4. Stages need to be worked on so that Fancy Pants doesn't get stuck in a corner.
5. How about different buttons to control rolling vs sliding?

That's just a brief list. I feel Fancy Pants needs allot more polishing before you should eagerly submit it to Xbox arcade.

Better late and near perfect than early and full of glitches.

A lot of those glitches comes from us focusing more on the console build of the game lately. I'll be going through and fixing as many bugs as I can pretty soon, though. The console game was built from the ground up on a different engine, though, so you won't be seeing those bugs in it.

I'm not sure what you mean about the wall jumping, are you always trying to press a different direction when wall jumping? Once you get started, you ust let go of a direction and hit jump over and over. Or, press a different direction to adjust you wall jump.
