It’s Mr. Pants

Before the advent of proper English blokes running around in just their underpants, this quirky Game Boy Advance puzzler started life as Donkey Kong Coconut Crackers before it was promptly scrapped in favor of allowing Rare's website mascot a chance to saddle up for his first rubbish adventure. While the initial Kong quest had been put on the backburner, from its loins arose the proper pieces for an oddball puzzler all the same dubbed It's Mr. Pants. Players were tasked with using these same pieces to fit together unorthodoxly in order to complete the game board, only to be rewarded with a sound byte of a Loon or Cow when they had done so. Apart from solving the plethora of puzzles, players were also challenged with pinpointing the exact second their sanity had left them at the mercy of the games utter lunacy. With its stylistic childish artwork and varied mental sound effects, It's Mr. Pants has a charm all its own.
