Well, if your looking for a story-driven level done well, it's this one. If any of you have seen Little Nemo, this level might remind you of the children's classic. You are a sackboy dreaming of another world under your bed, a world filled with lights, excitement and imagination. I'll leave the rest for the player to discover :)

5/5 ---> Appearance- this was probably the best looking level on LBP for a couple weeks...which says A LOT about this levels appearance, considering the amount of good levels we see weekly. The author did an absolutely amazing job with the lighting that I'll envy until I can match it...but by that time Hex will probably be light years ahead of me anyway :p (pun intended)

9/10 ---> Gameplay- Well I tie story into gameplay if there is one, and this level's story is enchanting to say the least. As commented on by many people, this level takes you back to a time when nothing mattered. No school, no work, no problems. The author conveys this feeling through the slick dialogue seen throughout, as it's done in rhyme in a beautiful Disney-esque sort of way. As for the actual platforming, overall it is a lot of fun but can become somewhat tedious in a few areas. Fortunately, it runs smoothly enough so that the player can easily reach the epic ending... :D

4.5/5 ---> Replay Value- Yeah definite replay value here. I played it 3 times before I was asked to review the level so..

Overall Score: 18.5/20

A brilliant piece of work by Hex Productions..s! Bravo :cool:

Definitely second that... Little Nemo meets Heart of Darkness... that was my impression, and it's definitely one of the top 5 levels to come out of these boards. Most levels, even great ones, shine in one or two aspects and leave you wanting for improvements, but this one really scored high in almost every category with nothing but originality.
