    Yes, it's that time of the week again folks! This week's Community Spotlight is up again, with substantially MORE levels for you to sink your sacky socks into. Enjoy!


    PS3 Spotlight

    SteamJunk by Sabre_/Sabre_
    Venture through the SteamJunk mixed with Steam and Junk such as toxic waste. The level is kind of short due to thermo but hopefully rate me on the level than the length.

    This level may be called SteamJunk, but the junk metal is arranged into such awesome platforming and detail that it's worth its weight in gold! Dodge gaseous pipes, trip over scaffolding and balance carefully on rusty metal platforms. A great platformer by any standards, but the decorations and excellent theming are really the icing on the cake.

    Holguin86

    SteamJunk starts you off running and doesn’t let up on the pace until you’re done! Junk and toxic waste is everywhere, but, as they say, some people’s trash is others’ treasure. In this case... it’s yours! Fantastic use of materials and stickers meld together into beautiful visuals and quick, quick platforming. This is one of the best race levels you'll ever play!

    Ryhas


    Getting the platforming heavy elements done right, that are at the very core of a Junk themed level is a tall order, luckily for us Sabre_ has pulled through with this rust-covered, waste-filled death trap. Nice points combo's litter the landscape, so you'll have to be on your toes if you want that top spot.

    Asbestos101


    I've always enjoyed that whole 'junk-into-art' concept, but Sabre_'s latest level really makes you appreciate the fact that anything, when arranged the right way, can be a thing of beauty. His newest level is brimming with great platforming innovations and a brilliant atmosphere that I would describe as anything but junk!

    Steampunk Skallywags by L1GhTmArE/L1GhTmArE
    "Arrrr mate! Thars not a pint of land in sight and were lost in this sea of clouds!..wait...Land ho!"

    Wow ... that was the one word on my lips through out this amazing adventure. Every surface was detailed and decorated; everything looked rusty, grimy or cracked; the solid, original platforming oozed out of every area and the theming was simply spectacular. L1GhTmArE's best level to date, and one of my favourite steampunk levels of all time!

    Holguin86

    Awesome pirate airship? Heck yes. No better way to start off a steampunk level. And ain’t this one gorgeous. Rusty nails poke out of the fencing and wood, while telephone poles and transformers (not the robot transforming kind... the electric kind...) rise from the ground. All this emerges from the haze of a beautiful sunset. But visuals aren’t all this level has to offer! Clamber down an anchor chain, run between smashy-things, and venture into some huge pipes! Objects are used perfectly and cleverly. And one point you’re offered to take the scene route for some more points, or take a shortcut. Are you ready to loot this level?

    Ryhas


    L1GhTmArE has been sequentially upping his game over and over again in his last few creations, and he's just gone and added another level to his impressive spotlighted levels list with this steampunk'y themed gad. Typical steampunky stuff abounds, pipes, cogs, dials, steam (duh) etc, but it all comes together in a way that puts it way, way above your average, mediocre steampunk excursion. This level is so full of quality that it figuratively leaks out from between its wooden boards and bent pipes.

    Asbestos101


    Haven't gotten enough of the steam punk theme yet? Well you're in luck, because L1GhTmArE's newest level is one of the most intreaguing and well made takes on the genre to date, and my personal favorite from this particular creator. From the gameplay and level flow to the outstanding visuals, everything in this level is polished to perfection making for one heck of a fun and memorable adventure. Make sure not to miss this one, because it's just about as good as they come.

    The Cursed Clock Tower by Antikris/Stellakris
    Help rid the monks of the evil creature living in the attic of their clock tower. A steep, vertical ascend with a classic boss fight at the end. Might contain some frustrating jumps.

    It's hard enough to come up with unique platforming ideas, but it's even harder to make them make sense in your environment. That is exactly what Stellakris does. Every platforming element in this level belongs in a clock tower, and so do the windows richly decorated with excellent custom stickers. Everything, down to the escapement mechanism on the pendulum, is true to life - except perhaps the pacey boss fight, which swoops down upon you unawares!

    Holguin86

    Help out some monks in the clock tower! Charming from the start, take a good gander at the beautiful stained glass and monks... er... doing counterweight bell stuff, I guess. Whatever! It’s awesome! Gears, weights, and monks abound in this simply beautiful and original level. Everything is wonderfully intricate, just like the inside of a pocketwatch. It’s a great, fresh level that you won’t regret playing through a few times!

    Ryhas


    Kris shows us all how to make an entrance to a community, which is by plonking a huge gothic themed clocktower right up in that level showcase. With everything on a larger than life scale, traversing wooden beams and jumping betwixt cog teeth becomes very satisfying. Monks on counterweights help you reach the top. So very fresh.

    Asbestos101


    Creating a level that really gives you that sence of epic scale is a difficult feat, but that's exactly what Antikris' new level does. It's sprawling stained glass windows and huge, empty spaces give you a great sence of height as you climb to the top of this mysterious tower. Just beware for when you get there, because what waits for you at the top isn't about to give you a warm welcome!

    Duffluc

    Trouble in the Canyons! by booXely/booXely
    Somewhere deep within the mines, trouble brews...What could it be?

    Colourful, creative and corner-edited to perfection, this Canyons level ticks all the boxes for polish, gameplay and visuals. This adventure has a bit of everything - simple solid platforming, a devious boss and some killer visual design. I challenge you to defeat the boss without dying ...

    Holguin86

    Wha... what kind of desert IS this? It’s trying to kill me!! Oh wait... that’s what deserts do. Hm... anyway, booXely’s attention to detail is top-notch—like homemade pipes, the hoard of beaver miners, secret rooms (I, sadly, found only three of them...), and a brief, clever reference to one of Comphy’s levels. You know what else is awesome? Backtracking! You get to use your head and be challenged... but not in a gnaw-the-sticks-off-your-controller sort of way! The final boss is also one of the funniest I’ve faced... so go find him and give him the old one-two!

    Ryhas


    This fun and friendly canyons themed level really hits the spot if you're hankering for somethign great to play. It's got everything right, from the tip top visuals to superb gameplay and puzzles. Throw a few secrets and a very clever boss into the mix and youve got a great level that's sure to entertain!

    Duffluc

    If Trees Could Speak by Jaslow/jaslow
    A platforming level set inside a tree. You platform through the dying tree, through timers and catapults and rotating sponges.

    An outstanding blend of woods, sponge and lighting make this level very aesthetically pleasing, whilst the difficulty is ramped up nicely with some ingenious timed obstacles and traps. Clever layer-changing sections add depth to the insides of the tree. Not everywhere is as plain-sailing as it seems, however - you must avoid being singed or spiked on your way past all the timed obstacles and rotating grabbies.

    Holguin96

    Ever wonder what trees think about? Well this level will show you! Some good timed sections with swinging (and clinging) about make this level a joy to gad about in. The visuals are magnificent too, with wood, clever layers, and a few well-placed stickers to make it look like you really are running about in a tree’s memories. Hold on—literally—because this is gonna be a spongey ride!

    Ryhas


    Heres a tricksy organic themed platformer set within a dying tree recounting its memories. And it's every bit as awesome as that sounds. With a soft blend of woods, Jaslow has carved himself a secure spot on this spotlight.

    Asbestos101


    If the trees could speak, oh what a wonderful tale they would tell! At least, that's the impression this magnificent level from Jaslow gives us. Warm, yet at the same time somber visuals along with some tricky but fun obstacles make for a unique experience not really captured by any previous tree levels that I can recall. Make sure to give this one a go.

    Cumulus Paradox by zynax555/Zynax555
    Enter a land in the sky as you explore your way through various challenges and puzzles.

    My first thoughts were: “I’m in a magical fairy land!!” (Yes, I commonly think like that). And that thought pretty much kept up through the entire level. It looks and plays really good! The variation on the visuals is quite good... just when you think you’re doomed to traverse an endless cave of rock—albeit very pretty rock—you pop out in the sky (which, mind you, is also extremely pretty with great usage of the 3D glitch, beautiful windmills, and a stunning airship)! It really reminds me of a much more cheerful Shadow of the Colossus or ICO. It’s a puzzler too—so pull on your thinking/platforming cap and queue up this level!

    Ryhas


    Good lighting is like gold dust, so if you can get it right in your level, it really stands out. Starting out underground amongst rays of natural light and tree roots, puzzle your way out of the side of a cliff into ancient ruins (whose mechanisms suprisingly still work!). A gruelling single player puzzler, for those who enjoy a challenge

    Asbestos101


    This mysterious and beautiful world suspended above the earth is an absolute feast for the mind, courtesy of Zynax555. It's clever fusion of puzzles and platforming along with it's superior visual design that changes from earthy caverns to futuristic airships will leave you enticed and entertained. This level makes for an fantastic journey that shouldn't be missed by anyone.

    Duffluc

    The Lost Pharaoh by poms/poms
    Get into the Great Pyramid and face its terrible secret. The Lost Pharaoh has become alive!

    You are greeted by a beautiful pyramid and a distraught Egyptian (though he looks pretty cool in those aviators). Then drop into the catacombs to test your mettle against some Wind Waker-esque zombies and devious traps. In fact, everything—the lighting, materials, and traps—is a lot like Arbiter’s Grounds from Twilight Princess, but cuddly. Can you handle that? Well please try, because ghostly platforms, springy crocodiles, and a wicked (dead) pharaoh were never so fun!

    Ryhas


    Poms has this deadly habit where he goes into hibernation for about 8 months, and at the end of it comes out with something staggeringly cool. At any rate, true to form here is a supremely well crafted excursion into the haunted depths of egyptian tombs. With the many impaled skeletons of those adventurers who came (and failed) before you, you'll have a blast leaping spikey pits of death and running away from the rotting inhabitants of this dusty crypt. Another poms classic.

    Cell 13 by SalieriAAX/SalieriAAX
    Sackboy has found himself confined to a bare, lonely cell: a seemingly inescapable predicament. However, when the walls of sanity that confine Sackboy's reality begin to tear, who knows what our hero will sacrifice to be free of... CELL 13 (watch video)

    Okay, everyone knows Salieri can make beautiful levels, and this one is quite easy on the eyes. However, the normal pretty vistas are replaced by weird, and strange landscapes in a different dimension. Escaping Cell 13 was the easy part. Trying to escape this level without being drawn in is unlike anything you have ever experienced - not so easy.

    VelcroJonze

    When it comes to sack-scale characters, SalieriAAX does it like no other. And apparently, this also applies to massive characters that span an entire level! Escape the synergistic torture of physical and mental boundaries with the help of an omnipresent creature that offers beautifully animated platforming for a small price. Watch the time when you play this though; you’ll be trapped playing it over and over again!

    jeffcu28

    Even when I was prepared to be surprised, Salieri caught me completely unawares with this bizarre and immersive brain-twisting gem. If Rod Serling and Mario ever got together and made a level, this would be it. Brilliant platforming, innovative use of both layers, and a gameplay mechanic I have never seen before really make this level stand out. Now I know what lurks at the heart of the Community Moon.

    Dr. Voodoo's Boppin' Brew by SeekingTruth86/SeekingTruth86
    Deep in a haunted swamp lives the nefarious Dr. Voodoo, ancient brewmaster of the bayou. Do that voodoo thing you do while trying not to become brew! (watch video)

    SeekingTruth86 comes back, and comes back strong with this rousing trip to the bayou. The murky swamp is the stage in your deadly encounter with Dr. Voodoo, and it is unlike any boss I have ever faced. Completely original ideas are hard to come by a year into the games life span, but ST proves there is still originality brewing here in the community. Welcome back ST!!

    VelcroJonze

    We've been seeing quite a few boss battles recently on account of the community contest, many of which are excellent. Here, SeekingTruth86 has constructed a level with his trademark superb visuals, and great atmosphere, but what makes it it stand out for the spotlight is its really unique call-and-response dance challenge mechanic. Totally unlike anything else I've played on LBP.

    SalieriAAX

    Wow! Now that's how a boss battle is done. This level is half epic fight, half survival challenge, and all fun. The only thing that upstages SeekingTruth86's incredible corner editing and sticker skills is the ridiculously entertaining dodge-the-attack gameplay. Glad to have you back ST, we've missed you.

    Silhouette City by kaiju_kid/Kaiju_Kid
    A dark city that will brighten your day. A visit will shed some light on the situation. (watch video)

    This is a level that completely blew me away. Lovely, voluptuous character designs coupled with some of the most unique platforming I have ever had the joy of playing. Incredible in every way, this is a level that I can't seem to stop playing. Please don't stay gone for too long KK, we will sure miss you.

    VelcroJonze

    I first got wind of this level after publishing Sprocket Town, when KK mentioned to me that he too had been working on a silhouette-based level. Oh, and it would have to turn out to be absolutely brilliant and totally beautiful, wouldn't it? No, really, this is a wonderful level and well worth checking out. A joy to behold and equally engrossing to play.

    SalieriAAX

    Kaiju_kid does it again with a whimsical, artsy romp through cartoony vistas displayed in profile. Platform on purses, go for a dip in the pool, and marvel at the scenery in what is undoubtedly one of LBP PSP's best looking creations. The only level that could possibly be any better than Lifespan or The Beauty of Grey is a perfect blend of the two, and that's exactly what Silhouette City is.

    Twelve Days of Christmas Prequel by VelcroJonze/VelcroJonze
    Coming soon to LBP server near you, the Twelve Days of Christmas. A community project started by Cheeze-Bo.

    You know a LBP community project is off to a solid start when the sneak peek prequel is a full-blown VelcroJonze level. Race gates and bubble combos mix freely with wintry vistas and loads of holiday cheer in this sugar-sweet charmer of a creation. Learn about the Twelve Days of Christmas project and enjoy the credits, all while going for the high score. Deck the halls... with point bubbles!

    Taffey

    From a master of classic platforming and streamlined visuals comes the prequel of an exciting new series to start off your holidays. Race your way through the snowy landscape, following the trail of point bubbles to a multitude of merriment. On the first day of Christmas, VJ gave to me... A gift on the PSP!

    Great list - must get around to playing those! Thanks for working so hard ON A HOLIDAY WEEKEND for some of you and getting the spotlight out. It's much appreciated since I've been buried in the beta and haven't seen a lot of the new lbp1 levels.

    To echo Morgana somewhat, I've not been able to keep up with LBP1 levels recently so this is a godsend. Congratulations to the creators in the Spotlight - those levels sound like just the reason for me to dive back into LBP.

    Thank you so much to the Spotlight team for putting this together. You guys do a great job!
