Puzzle Rooms 3 [1P]
Welcome to Puzzle Rooms 3. 15 rooms in total. The goal of each puzzle is to get through the green door. There are quite a few different mechanics so if yoou haven't played the previous levels then I recommend playing the tutorial. Its a one player level. You can submit your score at any time by holding O and going to the scoreboard. Press square at any time to view extra information. Any bugs then please let me know. Thanks to montana_9268 for the music and dani-girl85 for helping throughout.
Sneakysteve comes back to melt our brains with a great new Puzzle Rooms level. The third installment in the series, hence the number 3 in the title, brings us even more clever puzzles set within a sleek design. If you've played Puzzle Rooms 1 and 2 then you will notice a few new gameplay puzzle mechanics at work here. There are 15 rooms in total and while some are quite challenging, you want need to be a member of Mensa to accomplish the task. Take your time, look at it and you'll be fine.
This level will give your brain a real work out! SneakySteve1983 has the enviable knack of being able to put together fiendishly difficult puzzles that have your grey cells begging for mercy but still remain fun. It’s a hard line to tread but he doesn’t put a foot wrong. This third instalment in his series includes some mechanics involving coloured blocks that add a whole new level of complexity to the gameplay. There’s some seriously top-notch level design on display here, so if having your brain teased and challenged to breaking point sounds like fun (and, believe me it is!), then dive in and don’t expect to re-appear for some time!
Marble Madness - Medieval marbles (6 AXIS control)
Tilt controller to move. 1 PLAYER. Guide your marble through this medieval themed level. Special thanks to MADWIZ for all his help testing it :)
Bruce. Bruce. Bruce. This guy sure loves these "marble" levels and each one he brings us is new and fresh with ideas. This one the "marble" is a cannonball/bomb and not only will you have to navigate a challenging obstacle course, but there are puzzles to solve along the way as well and a cool sheep herding mini challenge! Beautiful scenery, teeth gritting and butt puckering gameplay lend to a tremendously good time here
BTJ rolls out yet another Marble Madness and it sure isn’t a bomb. Deft skills and precise timing is needed to make your way past numerous obstacles including turtles and rafts! Pay attention to the landscape to solve the puzzles and make your way to the end!
Cinderella: No Pedicure!
Things are getting hairy... Cinderella needs a new hero! This time she needs someone to find her missing slipper before her date with her man! Who will find her precious glass slipper?.. Special thanks to OneEyedBanshee for helping me loads! Music made by Hug-Of-War. Race Mode song by nk827.
Experience Cinderella like you've never seen her before in this charming tale by XTROPHX. Enter a beautifully crafted world full fun gameplay elements utilizing the attracto technology, grappling hooks and bouncepads. Joey never ceases to amaze me with his creation style and with always crafting new and orginal play mechanics. Excellent level full of humor and enchantment just waiting for your queue.
Searching for a lost shoe, we’ve all been there. Usually it’s under a bed or a couch. Very rarely does it require you to traverse a world of deadly bubbly bubbles and gooey attract-o-goo. And almost never does it require you to enlist the help of a fairy god mother. But when it does you are sure to be in for a treat!
Galaxy Ops [Platformer]
Nova, the intergalatic police force sworn to protect the innocent, has sent you on a covert op. This is a platformer level. 1 player will reduce lag. This one took only 1 month to make so I hope it's fun. Special thanks this time to L1ghtmare and Holguin86 for logic help, Hammertoe_1 for the awesome cyborg character, and Velvet--Audio and Festerd_Jester for co-creating the adrenaline pumping music. Enjoy!
My eyes were wide with wonder the entire time I played this. The level of detail Alley_Cat incorporated into this sci-fy platformer is nothing short of amazing. And as if the visuals aren't enough, Alley throws in some of the best gameplay to be found in Little Big Planet. It is smooth and offers up a variety of fun and ingenious mechanics. There are so many unique contraptions to be found I can't even remember half of what I saw. That's why I have to keep going back again and again and again. I know you will too. Queue it up and go have a blast.
This space-themed platformer is truly out of this world (sorry – couldn’t resist). Alley_Cat is a creator who seems to raise the bar in terms of gameplay and pure creativity with every level he publishes and this one may just be his best yet. Every inch of it is superbly decorated and I loved Hammertoe_1’s towering alien character. The gameplay though is the jewel in this crown. Endlessly inventive and brilliantly designed, there are some great obstacles to negotiate and his use of attracto gel is some of the best I’ve yet seen. One of those memorable levels you’re going want to keep coming back to. Great work!
Race to the top of Attract-O-Vertico. Can you get the fastest time? Remember to collect the goodies on the way! Produced by Heaxser and Deadmn in a special mono-layer style. Enjoy it! Thanks to Velvet-Audio for his great music!
There have been a lot of levels coming out that use the new attracto-gel and it's always nice to see it used in new and exciting ways. This level does just that. Haexser has designed a level where almost all the surfaces have a coating of attracto gel, even the cool contraptions found throughout. I loved the open look of the level and found the gameplay both challenging and fun. An excellent level worthy of your queue.
The race is on! It’s on the floor, the walls and the ceiling. Attract-o-gel and bounce pads help you rush past deadly perils and your quick reflexes will have you defying death. All the while that clock is ever ticking downwards.Causing you to become more reckless as you fling yourself at a wall in the hopes you will stick. Can you stick it out?
The Dragon Orb // 龍珠 (Re-Make)
Great Adventure of Sackbrave summonned from another world. Origin of this lvl is created in early times of LBP1 // 異世界へと召還されたリビッツさんの大冒険。無印LBP初期の作品のリメイクです。
A captivating story from the get go. Immerse yourself in an epic tale full of masterfully crafted characters where you are the lone hero summoned to save the day. Along this journey you'll discover great gameplay and take part in ferocious boss battles. A truly charming level that I'm sure you'll fall in love with.
I think a-tziluth must be a secret Dragon Lord – he is certainly a master of creating those great and terrible beasts! The artistry on display in this level is stunning. The beautiful goddess and superb flying dragon will take your breath away, as will the sheer scale of the level. The set pieces are huge and dramatic and the bosses are epic - even if I do always lose all my points in the final fight with the demon! The level may be long but there's not a dull moment in it, what with riding on strange creatures, battling monsters and sneaking past gorgeous super-sized cats. So whether you’re coming to this level for the first time or re-discovering its delights, you’ll love every moment!
Fase 2-5: As instalações suspensas!
Hard! :p Help sackboy through the sky hanging facilities! Find four power crystals, ride metallic worms, dogde some angry fire balls and bombs, and walk on the walls and ceiling against the clock. This level was gifted to me by a dear friend <3 Thanks!! Difícil! :p Ajude sackboy pelas instalações suspensas! Ande de minhocas metálicas, ache quatro cristais energéticos, esquive de algumas bolas de fogo e bombas furiosas, ande pelas paredes e teto!!! o.O Fase presenteada por um amigo querido! Obrigada!! :)
This is genuinely a level to savour. It has that perfect combination of superb platforming and cleverly designed puzzles which will get you exercising both your thumbs and your grey cells! Your task is to navigate all the many twists and turns of the mysterious hanging facility by finding 4 power crystals. On your way you’ll be presented with a whole array of cool gameplay challenges from metallic worms to hideously grinning bombs with your name on them! Ruthtomaz’s level design is second to none with brilliant use of all 3 layers and some clever backtracking that’ll have you chasing your tail...but in a good way! Add some fun nods to old SNES games and you have a level that is utterly absorbing and great fun to play.
Here's another well designed level from ruthtomaz and what a real treat it is to play. This puzzle platformer seemed to have it all, fun and varied gameplay, cool contraptions, unforgiving obstacles, great visuals and well made puzzles. I loved the fact that ruthtomaz borrowed from old classics like Mario with the colored platforms that need a switch in order to be turned on and those scowling bombs. Excellent back and forth gameplay that is well deserving of your time.
BOOGER BANDITS FROM ZENON 5
Generations of Sackfolk have been passing down fantastic tales of the riches that are to be found on the remote planet called ZENON 5. Many travelers have ventured through the cold blackness of space in search of their fortune, yet none have ever returned to tell their tale. You're aiming to be the 1st. But beware, it's snot all fun and games on ZENON 5!!!!!!!!
Well with a name like Booger Bandits you can probably guess what type of level this is. You'd be wrong. I know there have been a lot of "toilet humor" levels made in Little Big Planet and most are just plain disgusting, but Jerry has taken a gross subject matter and crafted a wonderfully fun world to play in. Travel to the distand planet of Zenon 5 in search of fortune and encounter fun gameplay in a lush environment full of blowing noses, booger miners and plenty of diverse platforming. Be warned, you may need a antibiotic shot after playing this one.
We've got an interesting pick for you this episode. It'snot for the faint of heart either. Get prepared to be thrust up something's nose, seeing perspectives not many sacks have dared to see. The platforming may be a bit sticky, but the theme of it all really does make it stick and stand out. Not many levels have braved this hostile setting. It's nothing to be sneezed at, buckle up and get ready for a ride!
The calm clouds cover the deadly, sandy land. The unknown, floating world will become revealed as you tread along the hard stone.
An original setting for some equally original gameplay. This level is beautiful: your path takes you through cavernous, echoing halls carved from rock, with openings here and there which give you glimpses of banks of pink-tinged clouds. And in this faintly eerie world MacDonald1967 has placed some amazing contraptions and clever and unusual obstacles for you to negotiate. The design is superb, the pace spot on and the ideas fresh. It may be a paradox but this level is both challenging and full of the calmness and tranquillity its name suggests. Awesome work again from an on form creator.
A fresh take on a dark and brooding platformer that oozes atmosphere and clever platforming sections with well thought out moving hazards. The rotating platforms will be sure to keep you on your toes, pay attention or you will find yourself plummeting to the spikes below!
Electric momentum [1 Player ONLY]
A fast paced platformer for one player only. Gain momentum by riding electrical wires, and launch yourself into this short and fun level, where reflexes will be needed. This is an open beta, feel free to leave a comment if you found a bug. I hope you enjoy the level, thanks for playing.
Sackboy encounters a scientist in need of help. It appears that his Playstation 3 has just gotten the YLOD and he enlist your help to remedy the situation. He has created an ingenious machine that will shrink you down to a miniscule electric spark and sends you inside the platstation to fix it. What occurs next is some shear brilliant platforming. Because you are a piece of electricity yourself, you can transfer between locations via wires. Bounce your way through this fast paced platformer and fix the scientist's PS3. Got the nerve to do it? Sure you do, go queue it up.
Get quick on the tail of lightning as you whiz through this electric level. The currents will take you and it will take some quick thinking to get through without burning out along the way. And there really is no better cause for doing it then helping a mad scientist fix his YLOD PS3!
The Button [1 Player]
Using state-of-the-art electrotoggle technology, the button will help you to overcome mild cases of being impaled by deadly spikes. Side effects of not playing alone include frustration, unexpected death, and loss of friendship.
How does he do this? CompherMC took a simple concept, ala use L1 to turn on/off in and out movers, bounce pads and actracto stuff and turned it into a brilliant and complex platforming level. Aquire the "button" and use it to navigate this complex arena of clever obstacles and unique gameplay in an extremely well designed environment. Take note. This is very addicting. I can't tell you how many times I have played this just trying to break into the top ten. I'm not there yet, but I'll keep trying until I am.
Narrator: How can he possibly resist the maddening urge to eradicate history at the mere push of a single button? The beautiful, shiny button? The jolly, candy-like button? Will he hold out, folks? Can he hold out?
Stimpy: No I can't! Yeagh!
These words ran through my head as I waited for this level to load, a welcome return of one of the heavy weights of LBP. A simple to grasp, tricky to master concept is what I was greeted with. The hardest button to button.
Inside the Jungle Factory [1 Player]
Fast platforming level ^^, sequel of the Jungle Factory. Oh no, the director forgot to reload the main generator, HELP HIM ! Go in the real maze which is the Jungle Factory, and finish the level as quickly as possible ^^. (1 player only) - thank you, Patof-103 for your wonderfull music ^^ Enjoy.
This is a brilliant fast paced platformer that will keep you on your toes. I loved the design of this level and the rich atmosphere housed within. The music from Patof-103 is very fitting and I just loved all the "Jungle" sounds as I swung, bounced was hurled all around until I finally reached the finish line. In record time? Sadly, no. But I will be going back as I've got to figure out how some of these people are completing this in two minutes!
Fast, furious and fun! This level by bat-19 will take your breath away literally and metaphorically, as you dash through the Jungle Factory in a headlong race to get the generator charged again. And your path is not a smooth one; this is an obstacle course par excellence. It’s packed with spinning wheels, clever contraptions and lethal drops and slides which, unless you keep your wits about you, will have you plummeting into spikes or fire. A brilliantly designed and executed level and a must play for all fans of fast-paced platforming!
Pirates of the Carob Bean (An RPG puzzler)
A Point and click RPG puzzler. Help the weird and wacky residents solve various quests as you explore the Island. Warning: This level contains reference to bodily functions that some players may consider offensive. 1 player recommended. (A big thanks to EnochRoot for all his playthroughs)
I love point and click adventrues. It's my favorite game genre of all time. When I hopped into this level I wasn't expecting a Point and Click environment, mainly because I was too lazy to read the description. I loved the gameplay here and shade_seeker crafted some great puzzles to solve. I love how they aren't just straight to the point puzzles of get this key to open this door, no you're going to have do some thinking "outside the box" to solve some of these. The level is also wrought with humorous dialog and crazy characters to interact with as you try and aid the pirate captain. Go on, what're you waiting for? Queue it!
Are you up for some roister-doistering point and click action, with feckless pizza-eating pirates, wacky witches and toasted-sandwich making varmints? Then Shade-seeker has a treat for you! This level is packed with humour, colourful characters and intriguing puzzles which will have you scratching your head between laughs. It’s cleverly put together with plenty of backtracking, unexpected plot twists and “interesting” power-ups. Simply more fun than you can shake a stick at!
Doctor Who LEVEL PACK NOW OPEN!!!!
created by the community NOW ALL LEVELS OPEN "TOOK THREE MONTHS TO MAKE!!! ALL 10 LEVELS
I am a gigantic Dr Who fan. I've been following the show for years on top of years. I've come across a number of Who levels, some good, some...well not so good. This series is EPIC. I was stunned. wilkr005 did an amazing job of incorporating Dr Who into the LBP imagisphere. Davinci calls out to the man in the blue box for assistance, and I don't want to give away the story but will say that you'll be up agains some notorious Doctor Who villains such as the Weeping Angels, Cybermen and the ever imposing, Daleks! A great adventure that is a must play for Whovians and non-Whovians alike.
I am in no way a Dr. Who fan. I haven’t really seen the series before, but I can tell when a series of levels is undoubtedly epic. Attention to detail and a care of the subject matter is always something that I think anyone can appreciate. Especially when presented in such a fun way. Not to mention the generosity of sharing so much content for the community, really awesome stuff.

Those who know me, know that I'm unhealthily addicted to bubble combos. As soon as I booted up WoodburyRaider's Ceasefire, I knew I'd love it. It's highscore junkie galore. Between the bubble combos, the awesome art style, the sidequests, and the original gameplay, this level is the complete package. WoodburyRaider has endeavored to become one of the elite, and now it's clear to me now he has succeeded.
This level has just about everything you could want in a level. Engaging gameplay? Check. Bubble combos out the ying yang? Oh boy, check and double check! Clever platforming? You betcha! Side quest? Ayup. Beautiful well designed scenery? Oh my, yes! I thoroughly enjoyed playing through this level by woodburyraider and was just amazed at the variety in gameplay mechanics involved.

Thanks for the spotlight guys Loads of fantastic levels here, keep up the good work! Much appreciated.
Wow guys, thanks for the spotlight. I honestly did not see this coming. This level got mixed reviews from the hardcore LBNers. Seems so alot of folks who were big fans of my Hillbilly series didn't care for the Booger level too much. Well, it's not that they didn't like it, it's just that they keep comparing it to the Hillbillies. Not quite fair really. I guess I should be flattered though. I realize I'll probably never be able to top those levels....unless I do another one someday. I set out to work outside of my comfort zone with this one. Purposely avoiding adding detailed characters, trying to do something a little different and not be known as the one trick pony. Despite that, I couldn't help but put a couple trademark Hog_Flu characters in there. Anyway, I am happy with the way it came out and I'm glad that some folks enjoyed it. Thanks again, and a big congrats to the other creators who got spotlighted.
