    Khodex & Eterniitys platformer [1-4 players]
    by  Khodex
    A cooperation level in wich you can play with your friends or alone. Yes, you can reach the end of this cooperation level alone because you can switch character. Eterniitys is my brother, in real life, and I wanted to create a level about cooperation between brothers because I think brothers have to help themselves. For a better level experience, play alone or with only one friend.

    Well what have we here... looks like another brilliant level by Khodex! In this level cooperation is key as you utilize two different sackbots to traverse the various puzzles. In my case, cooperation meant know when to push the "switch players" button to take control of the other bot. And these two characters Khodex and Eterniitys sure make quite a duo leading one another on through the level and even emitting one another through creatinators--which I found to be the coolest thing since sliced bread (as long as you don't have a friend who enjoys launching you into hazards... repeatedly). The visuals are there too for all you snap happy photographers with a very detailed mechanical theme. This one's a must play whether it's by yourself or with a friend!

    This is one of those levels where you find yourself exclaiming “oh, wow, that’s so cool!” every few minutes as you’re playing (much to the annoyance of your mic-less companion no doubt :P). But it’s just not possible to resist, as one clever co-op puzzle follows another. Like stryder for me the biggest wow moment came when I got to shoot my companion out of the creatinator – such a fun idea. True, it is possibly open to abuse but the fact that Khodex and Eterniitys switch roles constantly has something of a deterrent effect, mutually assured destruction and all that. Doesn’t prevent general incompetence though; accidents happen, OK… The visuals are colourful; the gameplay design is ingenious and it plays really smoothly. I guarantee you’ll have a whole heap of fun playing.

    I'm just gonna say that this is epic and now i'm gonna tell you Play this now. This level is so well done with its 2 player style 1 player gameplay. That's if you chose to play as 1 player. With it's wonderful design and it's perfect gameplay you will be astonished it its atmosphere and its utmost unique style of gameplay. Now go play this I demand it!

    Legend of the Hidden (but not really) Battery [INTRO[DUCTION]]
    by  morris6267
    "Gee, it sure is boring around here." These are the last words you will say before you make the greatest mistake in your life. What mistake? Starting the chain of events that cause you to go on the cheapest adventure of All Time. After being manipulated by the moronic but loveable Mr. Beaver (lol @ cheap name) you deicde to go find some battery. Not really a "chain of events" but whatever who cares amirite?

    Man it's been a while since I had a good laugh playing through a level but this one sure delivered. Morris6267 pokes fun at the cliché stories found in LittleBig Planet and sends sackboy on a "the cheapest adventure of All Time." Now sackboy may not have enjoyed the journey, but I sure did. The puzzling elements in this level were fantastic and very well thought out using the idea of switches to swing on with the grappling hook, but each switch activates something in the environment. So if you're looking for a good laugh or some fun gameplay, go ahead and give this one a go.

    stryder12

    Mr. Beaver is so far the best character in this. As you search for a battery for this socially awkward beaver. You are put into a temple like setting involving around switch gameplay as you interact with almost every bounce pad by switching it between lethal and non-lethal. As you hunt for the battery to help Mr. Beaver escape air you will be wondering why he wants this. This level has great humor and gameplay. So go help Mr. Beaver find his battery or he will stab you. Seriously he says that! I don't like you anymore Mr. Beaver!

    WESFUN

    Pure classic example of Style vs. Substance argument within this funny abstract of a sackboy adventure I by the end felt was great. but as Stryder suggested it was far from the same experience for my sackboy. I always thought him and I shared the same sense of humor, but I guess we don't. O'well sackboy I still love you, just like I love this level. It has the 3 P's of platforming: 1 platforming hehe, 2 Phun (yeah I know its a stretch :P, and it is Phantastic (why do I even attempt to be cute o.O). This romp of sending your new pal to the moon is Fantastic with a capital PH. Kudos to you Morris

    LEEMS

    This has to be one of the funniest levels I have played in a long time. Mr (#IAMACOMEDYGOD) Beaver is nothing if not a memorable character and it says something for the strength of the gameplay in the middle section of this level series that it is not totally overshadowed by the comedy in the intro and outro levels. The puzzle based gameplay is intricate and cleverly put together and will definitely have you cursing Mr Beaver and his ill-founded desire to be launched into space. I can hand-on-heart say that this level series provides a unique experience and I am glad I went in search of the battery for Mr Beaver’s spaceship, even without the threat of being stabbed…or whatever.

    Puzzle Colours [1P]
    by  SneakySteve1983
    Welcome to Puzzle Colours. It's a room based puzzler where mixing colours is essential to making progress. There are 9 rooms at the moment but will add more at some point. All puzzles are unlocked from the start. The triangle button returns you to the level select. Holding O takes you to the scoreboard,

    I think we all love it when a creator brings ingenuity and splashes with calm music to allow us to exercise our brains while playing LBP with 9 brain cell multiplying levels that pull together all the elements of the rainbow to bring us a dazzling rendition of puzzle meets platformer. I can fully understand why this level was recommended to me to play: relaxing meets me meets euphoria of time well spent. So don't just sit there and waste valuable brain cells reading my rubbish, go out there now and discover PUZZLE COLOURS!!! Kudos to you SneakSteve

    LEEMS

    SneakySteve1983 proves yet again that he is a past master at producing creative LBP puzzle levels. This latest one is perhaps less of a brainteaser than some of his previous ones (which my lazy brain cells are probably grateful for, lol) and steps in a new direction with its colour mixing gameplay. The concept is simple but elegant and it effortlessly walks that tricky line between being a satisfying challenge and at the same time fun. The presentation is as slick and stylish as the gameplay and together they make for another gem for puzzle fans to savour.

    shropshirelass

    this innovative puzzle platform show great and the utmost perfect colour puzzle as it will take you into the art room to figure out what colours make what, that is if you don't already know. The way this level is presented is just so perfect, with its wonderful design to its lighting system. The levels mood is just terrific. I would suggest this level to anyone who is up for some puzzle fun.

    Muppet Mayhem
    by  shookie_monster
    [PLATFORMER/1PLAYER] Auditions are now open for the next Muppet movie. Do you have the skills required to become the next big star in the film? Well go ahead...your audience awaits!

    When I saw the level title, I thought it was going to be one of those knock of levels of the Muppets Pack, but when I saw shookie_monster's name attached to it, I knew I was in for a treat. Though it relies on that Muppet theme, this level was an entirely new experience. There some great gameplay elements utilizing the controllinator to activate various contraptions and those lovely opportunities to rack up major score multipliers. Well get goin! Auditions won't last forever and you really rock the stage to make it into the next Muppet movie!

    stryder12

    Muppet Mayhem is just such a great level that this could be one of the best muppet pack style levels out there on little big planet. From the gameplay to the style of the level just screams out perfect! All the gameplay is perfectly suited to the style of muppets that we have played here on the DLC. one minute you will be running around getting score combos the next you will be soaring through the air like an eagle. This is a must see level Shookie you have done it again.

    WESFUN

    OOOGLY BOOGLY, I wanna be a star in the next muppet movie!!!! Geez this was a blast and with a shortage of muppets levels about, Shookie brings us this romp thru muppet stardom. From the bigtop the minor things such as the little muppet heads popping up around the safe zones from here to there oooo its animal, gotta have animal made me smile and feel as the atmosphere was as fluid as the platforming. This is one of those levels you can't help but to enjoy. Such a fun and smiley atmosphere ripped with Hansen charm. Kudos to you Shookie

    Wolf Fury: Intro
    by  septamus112
    [ONE PLAYER ONLY] Story: You and The Princess are happily in love and you don't think anything can take that away. But, deep in the pit of a dark castle an evil presence called Vox send his minion to steal her away. After getting the power you need you must go save her! Grab your stead and ride!

    This is one very refreshing and seriously underplayed series. After a very appealing cartoon-style intro, you find yourself in hot pursuit of the evil minions who’ve abducted your true love. Astride your trusty steed (which looks like it’s possibly had a few too many chocolate biscuits lately!) you attempt to shoot down the baddies whilst avoiding the rocks in your path. It’s in an action-packed medieval style side-scrolling adventure. Next comes some nicely designed platforming and sackbot action in Vox’s castle stronghold. Finally, septamus112 rings the changes yet again as you encounter the infamous Vox himself in a topdown level which will test your skills and patience…I have to admit to a certain amount of muttering under my breath at this point, lol. You have to applaud the ambition of this series and the charm and panache with which septamus112 has pulled it off.

    shropshirelass

    I'm sorry Sackboy it seems your princess is taken to another castle. This series is so grand and awesome you might just explode. I really enjoyed every level of this series and I hope you can as well. This series uses some of the best Sackbot gameplay I have seen in a long time. From wall jumping to swimming this is such a great level. I really liked how you were able to fight on a horse that has to be my favorite part of the level so far. Septamus112 you really done it this time!

    WESFUN

    I tend to be cute with my reviews, but I will refrain in this one and keep it serious. Why, you may ask? Cause it comes in a blue moon where I am captured by a creator and drawn into their imaginative world of LBP. This series has it all I am telling you, from very cute cutscenes, horseback riding, amazing Platforming, and to top it all off, a top down boss battle. All together this series rings out to be 7 levels, something like 4 or 5 playable and 2/3 cutscenes. Some may say WHAT!!!!???? 7 levels I don't have time to play 7 levels. Let me reassure you this is a 7 level series that the levels are not time constraining in the least. I am very glad to have played this and I would strongly recommend playing it. So please play now and enjoy this series that covers so many genres of gameplay. Kudos to you Septamus

    Fired: intro
    by  zecros4
    Welcome to Fired, a series based on revenge at your boss. You've been kicked out of the building and left in the desert, what are you going to do?. Special thanks to velvet--audio for his music and to hitsquad-139v3, gunlock11 and nistarx for encouragement and advice. Best as 1 player. UPDATE 31/5/2013 *Made desert look better*

    The bobtox is strong with this one an ingame review on the level would suggest. I would agree, but disagree. Both share similarities both are cast in a factory, both have horrible bosses, and both are amazing to play. zecros does an excellent job of setting the stage for an adventure that is great from start to finish. So put on your thinking cap and get to work, or I guess not work cause your technically fired. Well get back to the factory to exact revenge on your boss and be sure to give Phil a raise just in case you become the new boss. Kudos to you Zecros

    LEEMS

    Having a boss who takes firing you waaaay too literally can be a bit of a nightmare but revenge is sweet so they say. It’s not all plain sailing though and you’ll need all the help that the ever obliging Phil can give you to get into the bowels of the factory and foil your boss’s evil plans. This level series with its cool steampunk setting has a real quirky charm and lots of nice humorous touches. The gameplay has plenty of variety with puzzles, platforming and a boss fight to get stuck into. Just keep a cool head and don’t mix up your tea with your fries or seafood and you’ll be fine…

    Guardian of Space -lvl 2- Forbidden Planet
    by  Xx_Mr_Orange_xX
    After barely escaping the alien robots, your escape pod is heading right for a strange, mysterious Planet! 1-4 players use turn based gameplay but it is best played with one player to reduce lag. med/difficulty platformer ----- Special thanks to @CYMBOL /story, @L1GhTmArE , @UtopicDreamer /turn based sackbot logic, @RickRock_777 /music, @Festerd_Jester /music, @jarreguin001 /intro music, @CRASHER360 /animated me, @claptonfann /voice acting, @DjBon3sATerp /costumes, @comphermc /font.

    No one can hear you in space when you yell "HOLY MOLY THIS LEVEL IS AMAZING", but unfortunately as my mouth was open left agazed the drool did not roll down my chin instead it just kinda floated there, you know space and all, right no gravity or something like that, wait now where was I going with this. Oh yeah, play this level asap or just start at the beginning of the series if you haven't already you will not be disappointed in the least!!! Kudos to you Orange Man

    LEEMS

    Having whetted our appetites (and made bio’s Uncle Cletus famous for 5 minutes…) with his great cinematic Intro to this series, we now get to the main course and it was soooo worth the wait. The level begins with another gripping film sequence as your escape pod crash lands on an alien planet, but then it’s over to you and the adventure really takes off as you make your way into the nearby space station where some superb platforming awaits. One cool, creative gameplay idea follows another as you encounter spinning wheels of doom, tubes lined with lethal lasers and more electrified surfaces and other hazards than you’d think altogether desirable in a working space station. Who knows, though, perhaps aliens enjoy dicing with death as they go about their space alieny business. It certainly makes for a great and very welcome challenge and I had a blast getting through all the amazing obstacles. The atmosphere, music and brilliantly detailed settings all help to make this a truly must play level. I can’t wait for the next instalment.

    shropshirelass

    Mr Orange WOW! just WOW! I was absolutely blown away at this level it is impressively detailed the gameplay is just perfect and everything is just so well done it's like OMG THIS IS AWESOME! I was so impressed at the details I stood there for about 2 mins just to see everything. It is impressive how well done together the details to the grand design of the whole thing is just WOW. I would suggest you to play this right away it is definitely worth it.
