The Blob
I decided to make an entry for the LBLV1 Contest. I also wanted to see what I could do with all the fancy logic... Especially coming from the PSP side of LBP.

I finally got it to work. It has a great little touch screen menu. I was able to implement touch and tilt into the gameplay.

This is a mini game where you play as a little, purplish-blue blob. Use front and rear touch to control what layer you are on. And use tilt to move from side to side. You gain points by running into green blobs, but you lose points if you hit the red blobs. The gameplay is quite simple. The objective is to get the highscore. Have fun!

It's fun, but some of the spawning and destroying for the other blobs is awkward; I like that some move fast and some move slow, but it's counter intuitive that they would disappear halfway across the screen or not make it all the way across the screen. The controls felt good, and the game was overall fun. I thought the menu and tutorial was extremely spiffy, so nice job with that.

Good level!

Got it queued.

Some advise on getting to cool pages. If you have a beta level, that has been around a while, don't just update it when you are ready for the public to play it. Delete the old level, and publish a brand new one, with no plays. That way you should be on cool pages and if it gets some plays, it will climb up. You get one shot at cool pages, and that is when you first publish a level.

The reason I say this is because I noticed you first published this on 10/13.

Looking forward to playing this buddy!!

IF you EVER play them, I hope you enjoy them...

I'm gonna have to make a few updates to this level in the meantime. The gameplay is slow at points. I will speed it up...

Yeah, but you had Sackenstein as a beta level for a while, did you delete it and publish a new one like you did this time?

Or maybe you got all the plays because The Blobs level badge just looks so cool. ;)

I published a new level for Sackenstein too.

I think the Blob made it because of the name, badge, and the quicker paced gameplay, and maybe because it was a little more original than what you see on the cool pages....
