Staggers in, raises a weak hand to the keyboard and mutters feverishly “17 spotlights! Seventeen! Please...no more, no more!”. From which you will gather that this has been a busy couple of weeks at Spotlight Central. But don’t worry, we’ll survive. True, some members of the Crew are twitching and others have a wild look in their eyes...but don’t you worry, no, we’ll be just fine. The medication will kick in at some point, I guess. Nothing a few cookies (and two weeks in the Seychelles?? Please? NO? OK, then) won’t put to rights. *cough*

In all seriousness, though, you guys have kept us on our toes with an amazing series of levels. Every time we thought we’d put the Episode to bed, another fantastic level would be posted in the Showcase. It warms our hearts, truly. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful things you’ve been working on and that includes the nods, too, and indeed every level posted in the Showcase. So now it’s over to you guys to get playing. We know there are a lot of levels this time but every single one deserves a play!

Once again, we've published a Hub for the Spotlight which you can find here (http://lbp.me/v/em9-8z). :)

PS3 Spotlight

http://i4.lbp.me/img/bl/ac4d6ac67cca4ba792b46e58db69c9e589919569.pngWet PaintSlurmMacKenzie In a few words, it's an abstract and short platformer with paint and weird contraptions. I hope you enjoy it. The level is in open beta, feel free to report bugs and issues if you found any. Multiplayer should be fine, but let me know if you encounter camera or gameplay issues in coop. Thanks :)

It's refreshing when a level comes along that is so unique that you just want to play it again and again and again. This is one such level. To be quite honest, I wasn't that impressed upon entering the stage. I thought to myself, "Is this it?" That went away after about half a second. The level has a simple beauty that you really have to admire. Aesthetics aside, the game play element is fascinating. For much of the level you'll rely on blobs of paint to open gates, activate platforms and turn on switches so that you can advance to the next area. For an experience like none other, don your smocks and jump into Wet Paint.You have to take your hat off to a creator who after all this time can come up with such an original and novel concept for a level. Slurm mixes paint and platforming and comes up with a work of art! The bright, almost neon, paint splashes glowing on the black ground are not just for decoration but show you where it’s safe to tread and in the seemingly trackless maze you’ll need your paintgun to mark out a path. Clever contraptions produce drops of paint which bounce gracefully from pad to pad opening gates and activating platforms. It’s wonderful to behold and a joy to play. And now I’m going to put that hat back on because there’s nothing worse than getting paint in your hair...
Ah, the long lost days of innovative Paintinator levels! Well, I shouldn't say lost, because this gem of a level is one that just might breathe some life back into what is considered to be one of the hardest to implement (Other than shooting zombies!) powerups. Innovative, free flowing, and elegant paint splats are abound in this wonderfully blank canvas of a level. At one point your painting the ground to see gaps, while in another part your bouncing paint literally off the walls to activate doors and buttons! Give it a try guys, this is one level that is a total joy to play!http://i8.lbp.me/img/bl/fc8122d7f64fc9aa40163bd2121338b9bbfca320.pngVECTOR STORM (3D Perspective Shooter)Pirmaut THANKS to all the people for beautiful feedback.This help me to improve myself to create always better 4 u! - Immerse yourself In The World of Vector Storm.Clear Out All the Enemies From all The 6 Areas and proceed until reach The Core.Have Fun With This innovative And Psychedelic Perspective Shooter.Collect Smart Bombs,Extra Energy,Bonus And Extra Weapons.Play it With DUALSHOCK Controller (Normal) Or With MOVE (Hard).Musics By The Deejay and Festerd_Jester.Other Credits In The Main Menu.SEIZURE WARNINGS !

You know those levels that make you stammer and blabber like an idiot and almost make you want to quit Little Big Planet because it's just so dang blasted good that there's no way in blue blazes you can do better? Yeah, this is one of those types of levels. If you read these, please pm me the answer to twenty minus ten. Pirmaut blew my socks off with his side scroller and he's done it again with this epic shooter. I wish he'd leave my socks alone! I guess I should tell you about the level, but I really want you to be surprised to better increase the "WOW" factor. I will say this though. The visuals are awesome and will make you forget you are playing Little Big Planet. The game play is intense with fast paced action and a healthy variety of enemies to dispatch. Awesome level that is a must play. A fast paced on the rails shooter in the style of RES or other crazy flashy shooters lots of strange creatures that fly all up in your business as you fire franticly into the throng. To Bio’s question: 10. A well built menu, great effect and slick interface with a well polished HUD underscore why this so quickly became a Mm pick. There’s so much great stuff to point out, but lets not point out my sucky score...
http://if.lbp.me/img/bl/55f2b86e6652d23554feb4f0f55bf99a26970c84.pngMarvin 's Room (1 Player Level)ingenieus Simple platformer find your way out of marvins room. Special thanks to Just_Tom__ for gameplay help and Festerd_Jester for the music.

What do I love to see guys? You know what I'm talking about. Come on, say it with me. Contraptions! That's right, you know I love them. Big ones, small ones, simple or complex ones, I love them all and this level is loaded with them. There are contraptions to throw you, lift you, spin you, push you, twirl you, bounce you and slam you. Slam you? Yep. This was one of my favorite ones and it may be a little sadistic, but it was fun. This little contraption would lift you up and then slam you back to the ground causing your sackperson to bounce up to the next platform. I loved it. I don't know who this "Marvin" cat is, but he as a pretty awesome room. Go check it out, he won't mind a bit.Well Ingenieus certainly lives up to his name with the gameplay in this level. It’s jam packed with cool and inventive obstacles and nifty platforming ideas. There’s an optional race mode as well which will get your adrenaline pumping as you’re whirled and bounced from here to there and back again in time to some rocking music. It’s all brilliantly calibrated too, so that at points you feel the level is playing itself. But watch out, one false move and you’ll find yourself sailing at high speed into a sea of spikes! And there’s a death-counter at the end too to tell you just how well you did. Slick, stylish and innovative – and with added dancing sackbots – a treat for all lovers of platforming. http://id.lbp.me/img/bl/fbd72b6d61fe28181f261cf23c9c0270401bb85e.png3DKART S (1-4players)PPp_Killer Sackboy and his friends have made it to the Go kart race track... to burn some 3D rubber! I present you my LBP verison of the classic game Mario Kart. Enjoy the 3 track Layout sizes, 8 Action packed item pickups and most importantly, have fun! (3 laps) Hold R1 to do drifts. Triangle/L1 to use Items. Special thanks to Sevenisacannabal for recreating 'Mario Raceway' music and THATGUYDIDIT for the menu music. (Includes time trial for time trialing fun).

Aww, hey guy, what's the matter? What's that you say? You want to play Mario Kart but your mean "stupid head" brother won't get off of the Nintendo? Well then, have I got the solution for you. Turn on that Playstation 3 and put in Little Big Planet. You heard right, just put it in. Don't roll your eyes at me, just do it. Ok guys, while he loads up LBP, let me tell you a little about 3D Karts. This is another of those "knock your socks off level" that you absolutely must see for yourself. I was amazed at was accomplished here and was in awe of the game play. I mean for all tense and purposes, this is Mario Kart...in LBP! The visuals are great, the racing is fun and the "3D" component was smooth. The....excuse me? Oh you have LBP loaded but can't find the Planet. Just go to PPp_Killer's planet. What? Someone wants to H4H you? Noooo! Get out of there! Guys, go play 3D Karts whilst I sort this mess. No..get out of the Justin Beiber with battle sharkz level!
Wow! What a fantastically executed, fun, and awesome level this is! PPP_Killer has worked his magic and created a functional Cart racer! It's a mad dash for the finish line with Crazy powerups, awesome visuals, and a great set of tracks! Not to mention he's also included full fledged Bot support for you lonely little sacks! What are you waiting for? Oh, right! The green light! Hurry! Play this level RIGHT NOW!http://ia.lbp.me/img/bl/01a44f839d8e5cc46cd0040841cfaa16f65be992.pngThe Nectar Sector [Part 1] SX_Shookie99 [1 Player Recommended] Venture through the Nectar Sector of the honey hive, but bee careful. It seems the Queen has moved her production of Drone Bees much deeper into the hive, but there might be some Drone Bees still buzzing around The Nectar Sector. Morning Dew by X_DISARMED_PRO_X and Flight of the Bumblebee by JBIRD777

I am deathly allergic to bees, so it was a little apprehension that I told Shookie I would try out his new level. Donning my beekeeper outfit and with great risk to my personal safety, I loaded into the level. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I wasn't immediately surrounded by a swarm of bees out to get me. The level itself is a bee-autiful environment that is a bright and cheery place full of running honey and is just so full of life and of course, this wouldn't be a Shookie level without some great platforming and numerous bubble combos to be had as well. Run, jump, swing, bounce and wall walk, yes wall walk. Shookie has made great use of the Attracto technology in this adventure and I think you'll get a kick out of it. This is a great level that makes superb use of numerous power-ups, which provides for an excellent variety of game play. Go play it now! You'll bee glad you did. A new level in Shookie’s Honey Factory series is always a treat and this one is no exception. Fun, colourful and charming – it’s sure to bring a smile to your face. Some gorgeous visuals, fun bee characters and great music are just the icing on a cake (honey-flavour, of course) made up of solid, well designed gameplay. Great bubble combos to chase, cool creatinator sections which have you building honeycomb bridges but above all fantastic use of the new attract-o-gel. Shookie fits the new material seamlessly into the gameplay where its stickiness is just perfect for the honey theme. A sweet, honey-filled delight of a level. Get out your spoon and dig in now!http://i2.lbp.me/img/bl/042af25fbaf3e1d82c6c37ea520fafff93bf5aa9.pngLucky StrikeKipmonlin Platforming made with Followers follow tag. Enjoy sound effects with volume turned on. Max hi-score is 1000 x 27.

Unique visuals, great platforming, and some first class examples of movers await you in this awesome level by Kipmonlin! Get your R1 button ready because your going to be having a swinging time!(Literally!) Queue this one up guys! You'd be mistaken not to!
Feeling jaded and a little fed up of the usual LBP platformer? Well this level will certainly give you a fresh experience. The design is minimalist with beautiful, monochrome, abstract patterns that move and even dance along to the rhythm of the level. In fact the whole level is on the move in a St Vitus dance of twitches and jerks. The level consists of a series of rooms across which you must travel using a variety of weird and wonderful contraptions that will jiggle, bounce and disorientate you. You think it’s going to be easy until you try it! The music (or should I say sound effects?) fits perfectly with the modernist, abstract art style. The whole thing has a slightly surreal quality to it and wouldn’t be out of place in some super-cool modern art gallery somewhere. Take a risk, try something different and give it a whirl!
http://i9.lbp.me/img/bl/7c9b81ba23c72782b18702cce2e4a176813ce03e.pngSealed Fate - Chapter 2 [Action RPG] [Single Player]Felkroth Second part of the Sealed Fate series. -- Play as a young rune magician and make your way through the scorching desert to the dark and gloomy ruined temple where you'll discover the truth. Featuring a save system that allows you to import your progress from chapter 1 and a variety of puzzles and other optional content. -- Special thanks to Qrii_Nakari for character artwork and to coasterfreak1235 for the cube puzzle logic. Custom music by the amazing music makers; Velvet--Audio and Arexion! (v1.0)

In this brilliant second chapter you must trek your way through a blistering desert that is chock full of a wide variety of monsters. Some of these suckers were tough, but because I had my save sticker from the previous chapter, I retained my abilities and was able to dispense of the dastardly creatures easier. I loved the top down portion in the desert and the puzzle aspect here was great! Survive the desert and it's on to the temple where you'll feast your eyes on a remarkable environment that is full of new and dangerous entities. Discover the truth that awaits you in Sealed Fate 2. The first chapter of Sealed Fate blew my mind, and now, after gathering all the pieces back together to regain some sort of coherence a mighty Felkroth appears and it’s carrying a second installment! What am I to do? Find my generated code from the first part of course! A warning if you somehow missed the first Mm picked chapter of this epic RPG then you may want to start there the second world boasts tougher monsters and more malicious... umm stuff. You’re going to need all the level ups and magic unlocks you can get your hands on. Oh also the story is pretty important too!http://i7.lbp.me/img/bl/7d76a1619260919dbc5ec95e844954047744eb66.png(LBPC7 ) Muppets Carnivalbrucethejam Join the muppets and have loads of fun traversing this circus themed level. No chickens were harmed during the making of this, they are all highly trained stunt chickens! My entry into the LBPC7 competition :) Best 1 player!

I despise the circus but Dang! I sure love this level! Brucethejam is back once again with a spectacular level for us to romp around in. You can almost smell the cotton candy and popcorn as you swing and bounce your way through death defying stunts such as being shot out of cannons and swinging high in the air on a trapeze. All your favorite Muppet characters are on display in humorous predicaments and you'll be laughing silly before you can finish the level. I think my favorite was the Swedish Chef throwing the chicken back and forth, though I did like Gonzo juggling the balls too. Bruce has done an outstanding job mixing up fast paced and solid platforming in this excellent entry for the LBPC7 contest. Get your tickets early and head on over to the Muppets Carnival.
Wow, ‘scuse me while I get my breath back and the room stops spinning! That was a rip-roaring, wild ride of a level. You get shot from cannon, go flying through hoops, bounce and spin here, there and everywhere, and at all at top speed against the clock. Phew! It’s exhilarating as well as a whole heap of fun and will test your timing and nerve. The pace just doesn’t let up as you hurtle from one colourful circus act to the next, grabbing those elusive stunt chickens where you can. The visuals match the excitement of the gameplay with brightly coloured characters and stickers livening up the Big Top setting. It’s all exactly what you’d expect and want from a Muppet Carnival and more. So roll up, roll up, the show’s about to begin!
http://i3.lbp.me/img/bl/ef395c48d63a1f10414afcee658048a82f838e7f.pngAura: Visionless DreamingL1GhTmArE A story of a blind girl in an ethereal world or dreams. Help her get back home by being her eyes and get her there unharmed. Music for this level was epicly made by the one and only Velvet--Audio. The gamplay is a 1P waypoint/platformer/puzzler mix. Took about 5 months to make so I hope you enjoy my efforts to make something different than the norm.

L1ghtmare, fresh off a win in the LBPC6 contest, presents to us a stunning level with a unique game play idea. When he has the time to make these gorgeous levels, I'll never know. Anyway, in this level, the premise is deceptively simple. Guide a vision impaired girl from the beginning of the level to the end. Simple enough, right? Yeah, as if. This is where L1ghtmare's cruel side takes over. You can't just take the girl by the hand and lead her to safety. No. There's all kinds of awesome contraptions and obstacles in her way, not to mention deathly traps! I'm thinking, "My Gosh L1ght! She's blind for crying out loud! Have you no mercy?" And if that ain't enough, you are not in direct control over her. You use a system of commands that positions "Aura" waypoints such as run here, jump now, and grab this. I was able to guide this delicate flower through this, let's face it, gorgeous terrain, without too much trouble befalling her. I think you can too. Give it a try!
L1ghtmare proves his versatility with this level with its original gameplay concept and clever blend of puzzling and platforming. The story is touching and that and something about the haunting beauty of the setting really got under my skin. It takes place in an otherworldly place filled with strangely glowing rock formations and ghostly white flowers. And it’s through this slightly eerie landscape that you have to guide the blind girl, using waymarks to help her over the obstacles in your path. The tale may be poignant but a dash of humour in the dialogue keeps things from getting too heavy and you soon get absorbed in the task, at times tricky, of steering your charge to safety. It’s an intriguing level quite different from L1ghtmare’s usual style and it’s a tribute to his skill that impressive and intricate though the logic behind the level must be, you forget it as after an initial learning curve, you become immersed in the whole experience, to which Velvet—Audio’s atmospheric music adds the final touch. One of the more memorable levels I’ve played recently and if you haven’t played it yet, you are really missing something special.

Fly a fighter jet and rain death from above, or roll in with tanks flattening everything in your path. Upgrade your forces, capture turrets, and destroy the enemy base before they destroy yours! VS game for 2-4 players, ONLINE PLAY ONLY. Big thanks to all the testers for helping out!

"War. War is hell." --General Sherman. Grab a buddy or two and load up this level for a good old fashioned war. Well, maybe not old fashioned as there are jets and tanks, ok, just grab some friends and go play war! This level is fun as heck and I had a blast taking control of either a jet or a tank and just laying waste to all that I could. I almost didn't want to destroy the structures as they are really well made but once I let that first rocket go...well, it was on like popcorn! Flying my jet into enemy territory and sweeping in low to drop a bomb, what a rush! This is a great level, loads of fun and nice to look at too. Strap on you parachutes and jump into Air Warfare
Explosions! Tanks! Jets! umm... That should be enough to pique you interest in Doctor_Colossus’ latest level. Wait. Your still reading? Ok ummm... multi-player! Tight controls make it easy to strafe you buddies, shoot them, blow them up, all sorts of fun stuff. A very welcome sequel with some amazing destructible environments make this fun even to wander about solo just shooting at stuff.http://if.lbp.me/img/bl/fcf3e9e00c09fa9d8469cebea63a8df3608134e2.pngSackfo x 2 - Starfox side-scrolling shooterSwiftAyama Finally a new version of my Starfox based shooter "SACKFOX" It took me such a long time to finish this one, but thanks to the new panel material its finally the stuff I really wanted to create this way.

My initial thoughts when I read the title of the level were, "great, let's see what crappy Starfox remake we have here." Ok, I readily admit that that is a bit harsh and judgmental, but I am huge Starfox fan and after seeing numerous crappy remakes and "odes" I think I was quite justified. With reluctance, I pushed "X" and HOLY MOLY SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! Swiftayama just took all my preconceived notions and threw them out the window! I fell in love with this level the nanosecond I arrived. The longer I stayed the more I loved it. The visuals here are off the charts, as is the detailed effects such as your ship's barrel roll and the dust that kicks up when you get too close to the ground, not to mention, probably the best parallax scrolling I've ever seen in a LBP level. Swiftayama, my hat's off to you my friend. You have restored my hope in Starfox levels. Guys, please play this level. Just wear a good hat because your mind will be blown!
I've never played any of the old Star Fox games, but if they're anything like this then I wish I had! A beautifully crafted sidescrolling shooter which gives you a real sense of movement and speed. The use of sticker panel has allowed for some very fancy effects and set pieces, enemies and of course your own ship, everything looks awesome! The colours pop and with crisp edges it really is a feast for the eyes. Not just that it's a lot of fun too and provides a good challenge. Blast and charge your way through hordes of enemies of different types. Even the backdrop changes from time to time as you move from different areas. This level has a lot of good things going on and it's well worth investigating, so what are you waiting for? Play this now!
http://ib.lbp.me/img/bl/72ba65fcbc330b6b417ea1ea3f0a3a5972f2e1df.png"Come Fly With Me"JplusK Story? I don't even know! I guess you got to find that your self! Created by 'JplusK' lotz of hearts to cdcUS97 and all the guys that did something! Even if you didn't do anything! This level is mostly about the extinct 'Jetpack' Power-up! I hope you get inspired and make your own levels with the jetpack! It sure can't be missed in the LBP community. Enjoy "Superious" JK

A jetpack stage? I haven't seen one of these in about two thousand levels! Remember when you couldn't play a level without it having a jetpack in it? It really has become almost a lost game play element. JplusK is gonna try and remedy that with this brilliant level though. He does a pretty dang bang up job too! JplusK makes clever use of this old power-up in an extremely well designed level. The gameplay has a perfect balance of difficulty and it's certainly not without its humor either, as there are plenty of laugh out loud moments. Go ahead and put this in your queue because I know you haven't played one like this in a very, very, long time.
The “superious” JplusK is really making his mark at the moment with a number of clever, wacky and gloriously inventive levels. This is his latest and its focus is an attempt to rescue the poor old jetpack from undeserved obscurity. I wouldn’t put it past him to succeed either, as he makes such creative and fun use of it. He soon has you learning novel ways of flinging yourself (not entirely painlessly, it has to be said!) over obstacles packed with more spikes than a hedgehog has spines *ouch*. There’s plenty of humour, though, to keep you smiling – signs that say “Pretty cool, no?” and “Think fast” (hey, I’m trying, OK?) and a story about how there isn’t in fact a story... The art style is bold and colourful and the wonderfully drawn characters tower over you from a great height, grinning toothily. It all adds up to a magnificently crazy and totally beguiling whole and if this doesn’t make jetpacks cool again, I don’t know what will!

After Recieving A Distressed Phone Call About Frequent UFO Activity In A Forest Near The Border, You Decide To Take One Last Stab At Getting That Big Break And Take The Case. But Ignorant To The Idea That On That Unforgettable Night The Investigators Life Will Be Changed......For Ever!! Join The Investigator On His Final Mission To Uncover The Truth And To Show The Whole World, That We Are Not Alone In This Universe. (SINGLE PLAYER ONLY!!!!)

I'm a believer. I believe we are not alone in this vast universe and actually had an encounter myself at the age of fifteen. No, I wasn't probed! Geez! No, but I did see something and ever since have watched those night skies. When I happened upon this level I was intrigued to say the least. "What a fascinating concept," I thought to myself, and loaded the level. What I witnessed was nothing short of spectacular. The visuals alone had my eyes popping out of their sockets. As the description states, you are a paranormal investigator in search of the truth, so with your trusty camera in hand you head into the forest. You spot a UFO! Quick, take a photo! There's another! And another! Crap, you've been spotted! Duck! Take as many photos and videos as you can before the aliens notice you and...put an end to your investigation. Awesome environment, cool effects and clever gameplay make this a must play now! ‘I want to believe’ the words of an FBI agent. ‘Freeze Frame’ the lyrics to some song. Strange things to mention but maybe there is a connection, but what is it? So much secrecy and mystery in a write up that almost half makes sense, but then none at all. The truth is out there... so grab your camera and a suspicious looking fedora and skulk in the dark to try to get to the bottom of things. Eerie whistling is optional.http://i8.lbp.me/img/bl/3f8f6c859e223dae15a6599b24234e8efdd4fa09.pngFacili ty:ExchangeZ1091990 -[: S T R I C T L Y__1__P L A Y E R__O N L Y :]- [: D I F F I C U L T : M E D I U M - H A R D :] You are captured in an futuristic area with an Element of the Futur !!The Teleporter!!

Ever since I saw the movie "Jumper" I've dreamed of being able to teleport. Just to be standing in one spot and the next moment be in a completely different area. Z1091990 brought some of that back with this excellent level. Wow! The design had me drooling all over the place. The details found throughout this structure are just phenomenal and many times I found myself stopping to admire the craftsmanship. The gameplay is just as appealing as youi'll be teleporting back and forth, to and fro and every which way to advance your position. The telporters are some of the most seamless I have seen and they have a sleek design too. Awesome level that should not be missing from your queue.Z1091990's Facility:Exchange will have you teleporting up, down, left, right and centre as you try to find the way to the next room. The highly technical, futuristic setting fits it perfectly and has been delivered well. Once you've soaked up the atmosphere the fun begins. You will feel like a ninja as you swing and jump your way through the portals. And you will have to actually be a ninja if you want to pass through this facility unharmed.

http://id.lbp.me/img/bl/e9df8292f60f74213b06c6ff837a0a34605eda6a.png(LBPC7 ) Peter Panda on BroadwayLiquid_Blood_ The hit play comes to Little Big Broadway & it's your chance to accidentally become part of the show! Action, puzzles & more await you, as diverse gameplay styles change on stage with the sets!! Major special thanks to all you kind sackfolks at LittleBigNetwork.com & LBPCentral.com who helped with play-testing, logic, inspiration & encouragement.

Wow! Another great contender in the LBPC7 contest. This is shaping up to be a great battle people. This entry has us on the way to a Broadway show and it would appear that we've been let in without out a ticket. Oh Noes! Theater security is hot on our tails and it looks like the only way out is through the stage. This is where it really gets interesting. You become PART of the show and have to platform through each scene to the curtain drop. What's cool about this is, there is only one stage and the different scenes slide up from the floor, down form ceiling and in from the sides. really cool effect and nicely done. I won't ruin the ending for you but will say it's quite climatic. Head on over to Peter Panda on Broadway, just be sure you have your tickets handy. Crash the stage and ruin the play in a way that only a Sackperson can. Marvel as the story progresses and the scenery changes around you. Enjoy your time on the stage as you jump and swing to the cheers of the audience. Take a Bow, Bravo! Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Come and enjoy the whimsical story of peter panda, if you can get in without a ticket that is! This level is unlike any level out there! The level literally changes scenes in front of your eyes, and every single one of them tells the exiting story of Peter panda, out to save his magical buddy from those dastardly pirates, and also includes awesome, unique gameplay that will make you stand up and applaud for more! Not to mention the scene transfer mechanic is done extremely well, and without unnecessary killing, or teleportation! Give this unique level a try, and I am certain this level will be a heavy hitter in the LBPC7 competiton! Good luck to you Liquid! http://id.lbp.me/img/bl/a5dcda3bffab110dd2c8bb0d48ff27df9080cfa3.pngMeteor Mayhem 3D FPS (1 PLAYER)evret (1 Player only) shoot meteors to score points and dodge the ones you cant, can have a bit of a learning curve but it pays off. thanx to Mr_Fusion, tjaldex225 and everyone who gave valuable feedback through out.

This absolutely floored me. I'm still almost speechless and it's been several days since I've played it. Yes, this is a "through the cockpit" space shooter, but here's where it stands apart. It's non-linear! Did you hear that? Do you know what that means? It means that your ship isn't on one course and you shoot objects as they come into your field of vision. No, you can actually steer your ship through space. This is remarkable and quite necessary as there are loads and loads of meteors to shoot and/or navigate your way through. That's where the appropriately named "Mayhem" comes into play. Tremendous effort went into the making of this level and it shows with great visuals and amazing attention to details and effects. You will not be disappointed when you play this level.
In space, no one can hear you scream. Some things that you will be screaming is “OMG how is this possible?” “Argh! I was soo close to the top score!” and the ever popular “Noooo!” An FPS that rewards thoughtful firing with crazy sack person thumb action, a vast field of asteroids that give different points for being destroyed a smattering of powerups, and all you have at you disposal is a nimble moving ship bristling with guns.http://if.lbp.me/img/bl/ccf0fd7d77b41ac320566dbc998e762ff8acfc1b.pngALIENS boozle This is an 11 part recreation of the 1986 classic film Aliens. The levels are a mix of cut scenes, playable and some interactive cut scenes. Prizes are also in every level, so keep a sharp eye! Best for 1 player but 2 should be fine. Thanks for playing.

I hate to say it again, but WOW! I was super impressed with this series and cannot even begin to fathom the time and patience this must've taken to make. The series closely follows, and I mean closely, one of my favorite movies of the same name...Aliens. The plot, in case you youngsters don't know, is about a woman, Ripley, the only survivor of a space freighter, is rescued and revived after drifting in deep space in hyper sleep for 57 years. The company she worked for is sending her back to the planet, that is now colonized, to find out why they lost contact with the colonist. Man! Suspenseful, excellently crafted, intricate details, superb voice acting and just plain awesome! The series is primarily film but there are plenty of interactive moments as well. Get a tub of popcorn ready and go play Aliens. @Bio – I see your Wow and raise you a Woah (and the answer is 11 :P btw for anyone who's still reading...)! This is indeed a series worth the odd awed exclamation. It’s a lovingly crafted recreation of the film. The visuals are great - there's just so much amazing detail in there - and the story is told brilliantly well with some excellent voice acting, which really makes the characters come to life. There are lots of dramatic moments, and some laugh out loud humorous ones too. What’s more, this is an interactive film, so that as well as watching the story unfold, you actually get to wander round and explore some of the cool sets and even shoot some aliens occasionally. How cool is that? This series is one of those where the love and attention to detail lavished on it by the creator just shine through. So grab a paintinator, and preferably a pulse rifle and a flamethrower too, and get ready to do battle with the Aliens! There are some places in the universe you don't go alone...Also from the Showcase...

PSP Spotlight

Our Journey BeginsSpark151http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff393/valmassoilbpc/IMG_5609.jpgPrequel of Journey.

If you're looking for a reason to get your butt off of playing escape plan and go through the hard process of transferring LBP PSP onto that sexy vita, here it is. Assuming you've played LBP PSP, you probably know Spark always brings the best levels around, aesthetically and gameplay-wise. In 'Our Journey Begins' biome after biome is seamlessly weaved together to create an unforgettable environment. And the gameplay is, well, what you'd expect from Spark: incredibly designed. I found myself saying 'wow' multiple times as I explored and discovered a secret area that was right in front of my face the last time I walked there. Levels like this don't come around often. Do yourself a favor and head to the nearest community moon near you, you'll be glad you did.In my review, I could focus on the wonderful environments. I could rave about how tight the design is. I could even describe how impecable the story line is. But to really live this level you have to play it, so all I can urge you to do is download it and experience this fantastic level yourself.
The treasurehimoks/johnbonbonhttp://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff393/valmassoilbpc/IMG_5608.jpgSackys grandfather always told about a treasure that can be found in the desert. Now Sacky is going to find it.

Hot, dry, and sweat-inducing deserts are not always the most ideal places to go to. Himoks somehow convinces me otherwise in his newest level: The Treasure. With gorgeous visuals, three sidequests, three secrets, and original gameplay you'll set this desert as your go-to place!The Desert. It's a dreary sounding place, which is why it's even more amazing that himoks has managed to to create not only a nice looking level, but also incredibly interactive environemt and a leve lthat you'll want to play again and again. Sure you can romp through it with little difficulty, but the real fun comes from the sidquests and secrets that have been laid out for you. Have fun hunting for treasure young sacks!!

Well it's the same way you get to Carnegie Hall. With practice.

I see you have made an introduction thread, which is jam packed with useful links and tips. But at its most simple if you post your level in the showcase thread then spotlight crew members, like myself will play it.


Take some time to read the stickies at the top of the Showcase forum, there is a few helpful posts about how the spotlighting process works as well as tips to make your thread look spiffy.

Also take some time to play and comment on other people's levels. They're in the same boat as you; looking for feedback and ideas to make their hard work better.
