Description: Bounce through the Trail of Tiresome Platforming, to get to the mystical Sword of Greatness. If you can get by the Sphinx of Totally Lame Riddles, that is. But don't worry, you have Peculiar Pat by your side! Well, kind of.

This level takes place in The Floating Islands of Little Big Planet, where Sackboy is searching for the mystical Sword of Greatness. It uses touch, bounce pads, water, and the grappling hook. I did a lot of expirimenting in create mode to make this look the way I want, so I hope you like it. Enjoy! :p

Well, its a short and basic platformer, but it plays pretty well and i allways like those kind of levels, allthough its really simple as what gameplay and looks belongs. The Story sounds more epic than it is haha... but well, the Sphinx looks ridiculous in a funny way lol... The water part was wierd, cause u can barely see anything. I actually chose the wrong answer at the end haha... :blush:

Yeah. I tried to make the water misty and everything... maybe I overdid it. :p It is a pretty simple platformer, but I'm glad you liked it. And the sphinx too :D

Stephen Fry has a gibberish voice for the game.. I literally laughed my butt off at the beginning.

The platforming was frustrating because I kept missing the bouncepads. You should have made the cameras more zoomed out.

The Sphinx was surprising. I thought it was funny the level would end no matter what answer you chose and you'd get no reward either way.

Haha, yeah. I knew right away that that was the perfect voice for Mr.Pat. I'm glad you liked that.

I'll see what I can do about the camera angles, because I see what you mean about missing the bounce pads.

Haha, yeah I tried to make the sphinx look.... unusual. I tried to do too many things at the end, and so it ended up to be not as good as I would have liked it to be. But thanks for reviewing it! :p

No problem! Thanks for the review on my level too. You've got the main ideas about making levels down already. Keep working smaller and smaller as you create your levels. You're not going to become comphermc or SteveBigGuns overnight, if even months. Try sketching out some platformer on a piece of paper and make your level that. Put things in there you don't know how to do but can learn how to do by making the level.

Yeah, that's what I'm doing next. I already have an idea for another level that I'll plan out on paper and everything. I planned it out for some of my PSP levels , but I was too excited to create something here that I didnt. It'll take longer to make though... :p
