The Fancy Pants Adventures (platformer from Over The Top Games, Chillingo)

Originally starting out as simple Flash games, Fancy Pants Adventures was released earlier this year for Xbox Live and PSN and is now making its way to the App Store. There's definitely a ton of platforming goodness waiting for you in this game, but my favorite thing has to be the wonderful doodle-style drawings and excellent animations.

I'm not totally sold on the control scheme after my all too brief time with the game, as it doesn't feel quite as tight as some other iOS platformers, but I'm excited to spend some more time with it when The Fancy Pants Adventures launches in January.
Hopefully the devs touch up on the controls before release (please no tilt nonsense).

I'm digging the squiggly characters, with sword-fights.

We've been giving a ton of attention the controls (no tilt, don't worry ).

Looks like they were using an older build, so I can confirm that the controls have been vastly improved since then

Are you using virtual controls? Please use a dpad for movement, so many devs try that analog stick nonsense and it always fails.

Just a d-pad, should feel much better than a virtual analog stick. I'm really happy with how the controls feel right now, and I've played quite a few platformers in iOS.

Thank you so much! I've personally spent a ton of time testing the latency on the controls, I think you'll be pleased

So there's a dpad for movement. I take it there's 3 buttons on the other side of the screen (jump/ slide/ attack)?

Yep, left and right on one side, attack, jump and slide on the other. Making sure movement is as precise as possible.
