  • Community Spotlight Episode 147




    Welcome everyone to the latest spooktacular Episode of the Spotlight. Halloween may have come and gone but we have some awesome Halloween themed levels here to help relive the fun. This is the last episode of the spotlight before LBP3 goes live (in the US at least xD). We can’t wait to see what you guys will come up with but in the meantime, there’s plenty still to enjoy in LBP2, Vita and Karting!

    Finally, we’re handing over to WESFUN who has a surprise treat for us that we can’t wait to see…wonder what it is XD

    Hello Eveyone WESFUN here.For the last several months I have been bugging and bugging the spotlight crew. With pokes at a secret giving them clues that have been driving them crazy and crazy as the time has gone by. Now since we are only 9 days away I figured I would start this now and have this continue to go on for the rest of my time here. So without anymore hassle I bring the first video spotlight for LBP2. I hope you all enjoy.

    I won’t lie, I don’t actually remember this level too much. Maybe I blocked out all the scary bits. From what I do remember is that I had a lot of fun slowly edging my way through the castle jumping and defying death with much daring-do as one can muster when trapped in a horrifying castle filled with inventive obstacles and... ARGH! Um… what was I talking about again?

    Anachronism
    by  Aratiatia
    Don your best antique gladrags and lose yourself in this whimsical tour of traditional steampunk imagery.

    I have to say that I’m just a sucker for steampunk style and this level has lashings of it. There are oodles of valves and pipes and steam, padded leather, skulls and gauges and grilles. You platform your way through a maze of antique machinery, dodging the electricity and snaffling the golden secrets as you go. It has a kind of puzzle-ish feel to it too, as the path is not always a straightforward one. It’s beautifully designed, intricate and lovely. There’s some cool platforming and bits of logic which make you think “ooh, nice” along the way (like the moment where a block I’ve thrown out of reach realises this and tumbles helpfully back down). This is just a great combination of style and fun.

    Wow where do I begin, this awesomely fantastic Steam Punk style level has all the odds and ends about in this well put together its like staring at art, or like a giant steamy pile of fantastic fun. This level features some fantastic gameplay as you try and beat this awesome level! Que up now!

    Circuitree
    by  KomodoBrothers
    (Best with 1 player, but who am I to tell you what to do) It's one of those puzzlers, buddy/guy/friend. Don't worry about losing your jimmies, the memorizer will autosave your progress. Logic and paintings:

    Ahhh now these are the types of puzzles I like, they start our simple and I feel super smart, they slowly get trickier but you can still work them out. It feels rewarding with each puzzle that you complete. Then boom. You’re sitting there looking at the screen completely stumped, well, almost… then you work it out and you’re back to feeling super smart again!

    Mr_Fusion

    Wow, KomodoBrothers combines super-stylish visuals with some top notch puzzles to deliver a knock-out punch of a level. I don’t know whether the name was the inspiration for the level design or the other way round but it all fits perfectly. The trees have that cool square pixelly feel and the circuits mimic that angular branchy-ness beautifully. Your task is to work out which bits of the circuit to trigger in order to gain safe platforms to jump from one side of the level to the other. It seems fairly straightforward to begin with but things soon get a whole lot harder and it’s not just about working out the solution. No, sadly for me, you also have to be nimble enough to platform your way through as well xD Clever, different and thought provoking, this is a level to savour.

    shropshirelass

    Welcome to Circuitree its like a circuit made out of trees.... Okay I'll stop planting bad puns outside.... Okay no more! This awesome puzzle platfomer is just chalk full of amazing platform goodness as you grab, jump, swing, and bounce your way through this amazing puzzle platformer this is one level you should defiantly que up for awesome goodness.

    Witch of Roses Part2 // 薔薇の魔女 中編
    by  a-tziluth
    In the castle of Witch's, Can you reach to her room ? // 魔女の城。無事魔女の居室へ辿り着けるか? music Pandaz and YOMI-YOMI

    A quirky and spooky level with smart platforming that while challenging, is well laid out with clear direction and achievable jumps. Add to this some very nice scenic sections and er… a whale… for some reason.

    Mr_Fusion

    I was so excited to play these two levels as I have been eagerly awaiting the next instalments of this series for what seems like ages. In it you continue your quest to rescue your friend, kidnapped by the evil Witch of Roses. You must enter her castle and confront her in person. A-tzulith is such a past master at storytelling and at weaving his gameplay seamlessly into the story as he goes. It’s such a rich and beautiful tale, with gorgeous, inspiring artwork, fabulous beasts and lots of fun moments, including a ride on a very unusual creature (no spoilers – play it and see xD). It all culminates in an epic confrontation with the witch, her true colours revealed. This series really will draw you into its world and take your breath away. Artistry and passion on a grand scale.

This level serties is one you must play from beginning to end to take in the epic brought to you by A-tzulith Que this one up right now and while your at it play the other2 levels I guarantee you will love this series.

    The Evil Rotten Very Bad Haunted House of Doom! /LBN Fright Fest
    by  one-mad-bunny
    The house is out to get you! The ghosts will help you escape, but can you help them? This is my entry in LBN's Fright Fest contest. Have fun! Please report any bugs.

    Navigate a dark and scary house with the aid of some helpful ghosts as you try to free them form an ominous shadowy presence. There is some clever platforming, and integrated mini games; broomstick races, survival conveyer belts, and green sticky goo.

    Mr_Fusion

    Oh my, an evil house! Sorry, make that an evil rotten very bad haunted house of doom! And that’s no exaggeration XD Fortunately the house is inhabited by some friendly green ghosts who give you a hand to make your escape. It’s a very cool idea, beautifully implemented with the ghosts swooping around showing you where to go and what to do. In fact, the whole level is bursting with clever ideas and wonderfully varied gameplay, from wall jumping to broomstick races and a fantastic chase sequence to end the level. The house is very determined to get you, with dark shadow hands appearing to foil your escape and a dramatic denouement which will test your speed and skill. A truly fun and inspired level which engages you from the start and has you rooting for the ghosts for once!

    shropshirelass

    Wow what a mouth full of awesomeness just rolls of the tongue in awesomeness! The evil rotten very bad haunted house of doom should have a super turbo mega awesome mode because thats how it is just that awesome. From its amazing gameplay to its awesome story this is one spooky level you should start up right away and play right now!

    LBN Fright Fest: The Abandoned Funhouse of the Orleans Carnival
    by  shookie_monster
    [One Player Recommended] Something strange is happening inside the funhouse at the abandoned Orleans Carnival. The lights are on, but is anyone home? Platform and Paintgun your way through the funhouse. I just hope you make it out alive....Music by

    Disturbing clowns in a deserted amusement park? Sure! That sounds like a great place to hang out! old-gen power ups combined with new-gen make for some fun and tricky sections where you are sliding down a wall while shooting targets with your paint gun. You just need to get past the scary clowns and you should be fine...

    Mr_Fusion

    Nothing quite like grinning clowns to send a shiver down your spine. This haunted funfair may be deserted but it’s packed with atmosphere. Whatever you do, watch your step because the funhouse is about to have fun with you. There are pitfalls and surprises aplenty. You’ll find platforms disappearing from under your feet, you’ll be bounced places you didn’t expect and everywhere you turn those clowns will be laughing evilly at you. It’s an awesome combination of atmosphere and challenging but fun gameplay. I loved the paintinator obstacles and although I my skills would not get me far in any shooting gallery, I enjoyed every second of this. Wicked fun!

    shropshirelass

    What would happen if The joker got a hold of a copy level and made a level? This would happen. This awesomely put together level of well crafted awesomeness just gets better every minute more that you play. This great and awesomely crafted level will keep your sackperson on their toes or what ever. Enjoy this beautiful level as you make it to the end this is one spooky awesome level you should play. So que it like right now!

      Thanks for the spotlight! It's a shame that the video didn't actually show gameplay of my level but I'm grateful that it's there anyway. Will there be a level for this one?

      Wesfun, thanks for the cool vid. I love the outfit! BTW, my username is from the Maori language, and is pronounced ah-ra-tee-ah-tee-ah (it's phonetic like Latin languages). No one seems to get it right outside on New Zealand
