    Default Community Spotlight Episode 137



    Welcome everyone to the latest edition of the Spotlight, featuring levels posted in the Level Showcase and Recommendations Forum here on LBPC. We have a bumper crop of levels for you this time, with plenty to keep your sackboy happy this holiday weekend.

    On a sadder note, we have to say a (I hope temporary) farewell to biorogue who is taking an extended break from spotlighting, after an awesome 2 and a half years on the Crew. He will be sorely missed and he’s going to leave behind a huge bio-shaped hole in the Spotlight. It just won't be the same without him. He has given so much to the Spotlight in the past few years - passion, humour, warmth and Texan forthrightness. Anyway, as bio himself would say (actually has said, lol), we won’t make it sound too much like he’s died or anything and we’re still hoping he may be he’ll return one day when he’s recharged his batteries and sorted out his heifers xD Anyway, in the meantime a BIG THANK YOU from all of us to bio and we hope he enjoys the Texan banner in his honour. He once said he wanted the spotlight banner to feature flaming skulls and even mocked something up but I couldn’t find it (fortunately :P) and this is even better!

    Apologies to any creators whose levels have only got one review, but we’re a little short-handed this weekend. Also, apologies but the Vita LBPC12 entries will be held over again until next Episode.

    Without further ado, on with the Spotlight.

    FROM THE LEVEL SHOWCASE:

     
    (LBPC12) "POINTLESS!?"
    by  shookie_monster
    [Best for 1 Player. High Score Challenge and Race/Difficulty: Hard] Repeat plays and mastery may be necessary. What's the opposite of collecting point bubbles? If you could care less about scores this level is not for you. Follow the rules and be delighted with a challenging concept. Music by the epic

    Got to hand it to Shookie, he certainly knows how to make a person sweat! Geez! I've never been so afraid to collect point bubbles in my life! So, as you've probably surmised by now, the gist of this level is to NOT collect the bubbles. Shookie makes it tough as nails too. It's so hard because after playing LBP for so long, you have that innate desire to collect all the bubbles you see. Doing so here will get you penalized though, and heftily might I add. The numerous ways Shookie devised to try and get over, around, behind, below and in front of these bubbles is, in my opinion, both diabolical and genius! Well done Shookie!

    biorogue

    One of the valued components in LittleBigPlanet besides acing a level, getting all of the prize goodies hidden about, and of course having fun, it to take a shot for the highscore to engrave the top mark amongst the other player. Prepare yourself indeed as Shookie takes on the approach quite the opposite than how other players go about trying to get that multiplier in a platforming level. Instead of going for the point bubbles and planning your way to grasp as much as you can, you have to avoid them or else you will loose points. Simple enough? Nope, this is a challenge brought by Shookie's with great gameplay elements that will leave you making sure your sackthing's feet arent touching the bright blue roundy points!

    (LBPC12) MOOD SWING
    by  one-mad-bunny
    (1-4 Player but best with 1 player.) WARNING!!!!! Many things are opposite, even the directions! This is a high score challenge so get those bubble multipliers and be on the lookout for hearts. There are a lot of hearts worth 1,000 pts and bonuses are awarded at the end based on how many you collected. Have fun!

    A slight halt in a morning I am sure many of us get is that hesitant feeling without any coffee. But one must ask what would happen if I skipped a day from drinking caffeine? We'll lets not find out, but it can't be worse than an act of a mood swing. Speaking of moodswings, hereby stands a fellow level full of character one may not trust. If it tells you go to left, well, go left at your own risk as things change with your grasp with a case of the multi-attitude emotional effect. Prepare for the opposites as well as collecting many hearts to help bump up your final highscore... or will they?

    hyperdude95

    This level is an absolute blast to play. Right from the start it has you laughing at the weird and wonderful world of opposites you find yourself in, where cute butterflies suddenly turn nasty on you and you can trust nothing, not even the directions! And there are so many points to bag as you make your way from thundercloud to thundercloud, dodging the lightening and trying to grab the bonus hearts, swooping about with your cape and letting water spouts whoosh you up. Then there’s part where you get to fly around the skies in a paper plane with even more points to snatch…or miss, if you’re me. It really has a lovely, fun and whacky feel to it, so much originality and verve packed in to one level. I defy you not to have fun playing it.

    [LBPC12] Freezer Fever Inc.
    by  OMGYOUWOULD
    Need a job you bum? Come down to Freezer Fever Inc, for a job. Compete for the highest score in this awesome icy, yet fiery survival! ------ Font by

    Yes! I need a job please! What do you have in store for me good sir? Oh, ok so you want me to survive, understandable. Oh wait, you want to fly around an area wall jumping off of falling ice cubes avoiding fiery obstacles that give me an automatic resignation letter? Well it does look pretty, and the fact that I did not need an interview for this job means that you really want me! Right? Why is there a countdown it's not like you are going to push me in there, there is an incredible menu screen we have to view first before I cut to the chase! Oh, you already hit the play button... AHHHH!

    hyperdude95

    Man, I can't tell you how jealous I am of OMGYOUWOULD's ability to make these mouth watering scenes. From the menus to the game screen, it just all looks so alive. After you get through drooling over the eye candy prepare yourself for some intense action. Here's another level that will not only make you sweat but make you want to twist your controller in two as well. You're in a furnace of some sort and these ice blocks are falling towards the bottom. Your job is to leap from block to block and try to avoid a deathly burn. Play it.

    Missi's Music Shop
    by  Missi_Cat
    Come visit Missi's Music Shop with a little variety for everyone. Thank you Destiny_Waits for such an amazing set for which I'm ever so grateful and this wouldn't have existed without and Festerd_Jester for inspiring me to try new genres and keep the creativity flowing.

    To be quite honest, I'm not too keen on music gallery. *Gasp* I know, I know. But, and there is a but, sometimes one comes along that is just chock full of Whoa and awesome that you can't help but love it. Now, I will say this. I do love the different ways that creators try and make their music galleries stand out from the rest. Missi does a fine job of just that. This is like no other that I've seen. The setting is a music shop and it's really detailed. Albums on the wall, cash register, instruments, really cool. Oh, yes, almost forgot. Silly me. There's also, of course, music! And lots of it. Go check this out, you'll surely love it.

    Biorogue

    A music gallery that shines as a life-like example of how one would be looking for an artist's music. Simply --and casually-- you enter a music shop so colorful filled with many sackthings who wish to have music in their ears. Right when you go up to the counter, you will meet one awesome store clerk who happily scavenges under the counter for music presented in the gallery. Each music track has its own awesome looking logo and the clerk delivers enjoyable tunes -that even you can grab as a friendly giveaway - one search at a time.

    The Book of Dreams
    by  TJ2010-OLYMPICS
    A fairy tale comes to life in this 4-part series. After being transported into a book, you find yourself in the middle of a battle between good and evil. Will you be able to save the world from the forces of evil, or will you forever be trapped in The Book of Dreams?

    Here's a real treat. An adventure of epic proportions. This level series transports us into a fairytale book where it's up to us to write the ending or better yet, to right the ending. Ha ha, I like that. A battle between good and evil is being waged in the enchanted forest and we are tasked with putting an end to the evil witch. This series is full of very varied gameplay and it's done very well. You'll have to traverse through trap laden castles, dense forest and even underwater caverns before you are finally face to face with the witch herself. A battle ensues and...well, I won't spoil the ending, that's up to you to write.

    biorogue

    This is a level series with a big heart. As bio says, you find yourself transported into a fairy tale and faced with a series of adventures in which, Dorothy-like, you need to both vanquish evil and find your way home. It’s action-packed too, with 4 chapters in which you find yourself meeting a bird-like magic companion, making potions, rescuing a wizard and generally doing all you can to thwart the evil witch. Oh, and there’s some pretty neat platforming thrown in for good measure. It’s a funny and altogether magical tale. The creator clearly put so much into this series and it has that classic LBP charm and quirkiness. Great stuff and well worth playing!

    Gallery 9 (The Voodoo Gallery)
    by  Festerd_Jester
    My 9th music gallery! :D 27 or 28 tracks for collecting and using. From short little seemingly pointless loops to full on head spew! Hopefully something for everyone. Thank you all and a special thank you to my friend @Pirmaut for his amazing support and assistance in this :) <3 ---- WARNING ---- FLASHES AND PATTERNS!! (User toggled)

    Another (can’t believe it’s 9 now!) amazing gallery from one of LBP’s music legends. Those visuals, wow, so hypnotic! And I laughed out loud with delight when I realised the small jester could go walk about – so very cool. But the star of the show is of course the music. I only wish this review were not being written by the least musically literate member of the Spotlight Crew but, even so, I loved the songs. I cannot believe anyone can make such awesome sounds just using the music sequencer. All of the tracks sound so professional and polished and the range of styles is really impressive. So just sit back, relax, press O and let that voodoo magic work its powerful spell on you!

    shropshirelass

    [spotccom="biorogue"]Gah! Another epic music gallery? In one episode? Well, I may have to just eat crow and change my stance on music galleries then. Festerd_Jester is one of the greats at producing near seizure inducing visuals. This gallery is...well, awesome! I'm not even going to pretend to know what that character is that he created, but it kinda creeped me out a little. I had to quickly navigate to the music section so I could close my eyes and just listen to the tunes, all collectible by the way, and relax. There is a wide variety of tunes to choose from so go on and getcha some.[/spotcom]

     
    The Cardboard Kingdom Hero Race
    by  shookie_monster
    [Best for 1 Player] A hero's race through the Cardboard Kingdom. Can you keep an endless bubble combo all the way to the scoreboard? Music by

    Now this is what I'm talking about! A shookie level where it's actually good to collect bubbles and is actually encouraged, if you want a spot on the scoreboard of course. I recommend playing Pointless before this and not the other way around because this will just make you want those bubbles all the more. You start out wearing the hero cape and drop into the level to fly and bounce your way through this beautiful cardboard world, all the while trying to maintain the highest bubble combo that you can. It's not just really simple though. You'll have to have some quick reflexes and the ability to look ahead a little to plot your next course of action. Another great and addictive level. Play it now.

    biorogue

    A flipside indeed as I seek this as a sequel to the creator's previous level POINTLESS. A cheerful and well constructed kingdom made out of cardboard that adds on to the fun with a slew of score bubbles to collect and rack up the score! Test how long you can maintain a strong and long lasting combo as you equip your hero cape and gracefully glide avoiding assets that could end your point streak. Keep an eagle eye out, as this can be addictive leaving you with a great amount of replay value.

    Cranium Cadoo
    by  FlammableWhale
    Your father/creator, Dr. Ruben, is not happy with your training lately. Prove to him that you're a worthy minion!

    Oh boy, here we go. Once again, sackboy is put to the test. This time the creator is not pleased with your lackluster performance so a training facility has been constructed just for you. Aren't you special? While this facility may look all cute and breezy, I assure you, it is not. It starts simple enough, but all too soon you'll be scratching your head trying to figure out how to get to the next section without dying...again...for the twelfth time! I really dig this level. I love the design, the humor, and well the level flows and takes you through the paces. A great level just waiting for you to check it out.

    biorogue

    “Oh boy” just about sums it up for me too, lol. No amount of training is ever going to get me to a standard of which Dr Reuben would approve. His expression at the scoreboard…oh my! Still I had fun in my own incompetent way. There some clever ideas and some very neat obstacles along the way and Dr Reuben pops up now and then with a pithy comment to spur you on. The training facility looks good too – nice unfussy blocks of colour and plenty of cool pixel material. It all felt very fresh and creative and I ended the level with a big smile notwithstanding my final grade…well, at least I tried ;D

    [DVLC2] Esmerelda's Snack Shack: Prepare to Dine
    by  bonner123
    [1P ONLY] [HARD] Esmerelda's hungry, and she wants you! Evade the World Eater for as long as you can in this desperate struggle for survival. Special thanks to actio1_618 and SLS10 for lots of memorizer logic help.

    I'm confused. Why is this red severed head chasing me around again? Crud! No time to think! Just run! Well, I sucked pretty bad at this level. I mean horribly bad. I played the level numerous times and admittedly, I did make it a bit further each time. I don't do well under pressure. This head says it wants to eat me so I skedaddled right out of there. Bouncing off bounce pads, jumping off walls and swinging on stuff. Really, that's all I saw because I didn't make it just real far. The level is a great deal of fun though and I highly recommend it to those folks who actually know how to play this game.

    biorogue

    I hope you are in for a challenge in one of the best executed chases in a level. Enter an area where you are stuck with a goal to survive as you bounce your way around, wall jumping and swinging as you might be one second away from getting caught and loosing with the one life you have.

    Dragon`s Den
    by  yu-kamone
    The volcanic region said for a dragon to live. Can you slip out of this volcanic region, without offending dragons...? If you get all medals, you can challenge a race mode! (1-4player platformer) -------- ここは竜が住むと言われている火山地帯。リビッツは竜たちを怒らせずにこの火山地帯を抜け出せるだろうか. ..。 メダルすべて入手でレースモードがアンロックされます。 ------------ Special thanks

    Oh. My. Goodness! Are you freaking kidding me? My jaw was on the floor the ENTIRE time! Wow, I don't even know where to begin. I'm just so happy to see another Yu-Kamone level. It's been awhile man. Ok, to the level. Oh who am I kidding? I don't need to write this because you've already played it! So I don't need to try and convince you to do so. Hey, remember that part when you first saw the dragon come up between the pillars? Yeah, that was cool! How'd he make it spin like that? Oh, remember that part where you had to use the paintinator to move the block but it kept moving back and you had to quick jump and keep firing at the block? Yeah, that part was cool.

    biorogue

    My need has been satisfied once again. Where is another Yu-ka-mone level? Did the creator leave LBP? What was taking so long? My paranoia ends here, as you enter a jaw dropping area known as the Dragon's Den. With a phenomenal use of the DC comics goodies, a master piece has been brilliantly crafted from head to toe. As you platform across lava and wall jumping your way to collect medals to unlock race mode with the power of the memoriser, prepare to in awe mode as you see twirling dragons rising upwards and going downwards using the magic of the disk spinner tool. Once you reach near the end, you are going to never wish you woke a dragon up as you are chased inside the volcano clinging for your dear sack life in one of the most unforgettable levels ever. Next level please!

    Starship Axxilith [1 Player]
    by  Robo_Ranger
    Top-down twin-stick space shooter. 10 missions, 5 difficulty levels and over 30 unlockable weapons. Uses an autosave feature. Music by

    Wow, this is an amazing shooter with more replay value than you can shake a stick at (if you’re in the habit of doing shaking sticks at things). It has all the functionality you’d expect from a full game – options for different ships, different weapons, difficulty levels, missions…the list goes on. The logic that went into creating the menu system is truly impressive and gives the level an incredibly professional feel. The gameplay is pretty cool too but here I’m on shaky ground as I didn’t manage to get very far - being all thumbs (and not thumbsticks, lol) when it comes to playing this kind of level. I really enjoyed wondering what power up was going to drop from enemies, though, and loved the way you then get to use the weapons you’ve unlocked in the next mission. Cool stuff and I’m sure you guys will get a lot further than me xD

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor
    by  ApeCheese
    From the unreachable nameless light down the endless screaming sky--moaning flesh trembling broken across the cracked wounded earth tralala >>>>>>>>>>> music - SQUID2723 <<<<<<<<<<< death shriek - debonairetoast; blood - krangballs 'styx and stones' - weirdybeardy; length: 23 min To the memory of Pier Paolo Passolini.

    This level takes LBP film making to a new level. Even having seen his La Dolce Vita, I was still amazed at the intensity of the drama ApeCheese manages to convey through the medium of LBP. This is a chilling and enigmatic tale, where much is left to the viewer’s imagination. There’s no heavy-handed exposition, little dialogue at all in fact, but so much is communicated through a handful of intense, sharply focussed scenes. Their impact, brutality even, is intensified by the vast desolate landscapes and brooding music with which they are interspersed. It’s an unsettling film and one which lingers in the mind long after watching it. It really is extraordinary work and one can’t help but feel that ApeCheese’s talents as a director are wasted on LBP but then saying that takes away from what he has managed to achieve here. It really is a work of art, no less.

    FLY & SOLVE [platformer] (JPN)
    by  mpggsmpggs
    Best for 1 player.This is a puzzle action level to use a jetpack.Please don't clap other sackboys because a jetpack comes off.Have fun! ----1人プレイおすすめ。「ジェットパック」の特徴を生かした、パズルアクションステージです。ジェットパック がはずれるので、他のプレイヤーをビンタするときはご注意ください。では楽しんで!

    Not often enough do we see a stellar jetpack level such as this. Did you catch that? Jetpack. Now, I've seen a lot of great and awe inspiring levels that utilize the jetpack but this one is something special here. You don't just fly from here to there and avoid spikes and stuff, but you have to puzzle your way through. The puzzles are ingenious and you'll be going, "Why didn't I think of that? That's freaking cool!" There are a few moments where you'll be sans jetpack and will platform various obstacles, but then you strap up again and fly away. Lovely level.

    biorogue

    I recall playing this level a while ago and I was really happy this is getting the spotlight it deserves! Some antics that are found in this well designed level are geniusly crafted where simple gameplay elements come out of their cocoon into a whole new puzzle that has not seen done before. Execution hits perfection as it is well paced and you will mostly enjoy it rather than have a pain in the forehead that people get sometimes when the are trying to solve things, like the mystery of where my second sock went...

    The Cube 2
    by  actio1_618
    Just a little something to get familiar with lbpv create. Can you escape the cube? Ending music by squid2723.

    This creator took one section of the whole level and packed a ton of challenging obstacles courses within that confined space! It is amazing what can be stored in a cube, especially when they are smaller cubes that make up many sections where you have to carefully jump across and grab precisely as you try not to slip and fall while trying to wall jump on to that one wall block. Prepare for an ultimate patience test while having lots of fun.

    hyperdude95

    Ah. This. Level. I kinda... Have a love-hate relationship with this level. You know, if there is one thing I hate in gaming are cheap deaths. Whoa there! Don't get mad at me just yet, let me finish! Hard as this level is, the cool thing about it is that there are just no cheap deaths in here. And that's why I love this level. Your patience will be tested, your reflexes, your timing will be tested as well. And take for granted that your sackchum will most likely be vaporized more than just one time. Yet in the middle of that challenge you will find a beautifully designed level confined to... A single room! So if you're one of those challenge-seeker players, you better go check this Cube right now!

    yugnar

    This level brings something very special to the Vita - an action-packed level with a challenging pace and all squeezed into some tiny, well designed and visualised space. At times it'll make you want to rip your own hair out, but you'll keep coming back, death after death purely because of the slick visuals and fair nature of the level. I wouldn't waste another minute (because it'll take you a fair few to complete this) so download it now!!

    Galactic Space Defense
    by  mdoodle22
    Your galaxy is threatened by a rival galaxy, it is YOUR fate of defending your galaxy from the invaders and saving your galaxy, the fate of it is in your hands! This level lets you choose between 3 difficulties: Easy, Normal, and Veteran. As you defend your galaxy, destroying rival enemy ships, you gain upgrades for your ship! There are also 20 achievements to be earned and there are plenty of statistics available! There is also random space junk spawned and power ups! Thanks to all beta testers, and enjoy

    WOW! There comes a time in a LittleBigPlanet level where quality and quantity comes together at a balance. Enter space, a place in which case has many different crafted worlds in the background as you controlling your ship trying to fight off enemies in defense. To be fair, this played more of a full-out game then a level! The more you fly around and shoot down the bad guys, you can gain some awesome upgrades that can make the ship battles more epic. Not just upgrades lie await in this galactic warfare, but random debris and power ups put an 'oomph to the gameplay. If that is not a challenge for you, then feel free to alter the difficulty as you are given the options of easy, medium and hard.At the end of the day, prepare to take a gander at the stats screens showing of some really neat and interesting information about your play through. To top it all of, there are even achievements to collect, 20 in total! I urge you to go and get ready to be a pilot as you enjoy one galactic-y battle survival.

    hyperdude95

    Haaaa! Once I told Mdoodle22 to keep trying. To polish his skills. And man, he is making me proud! Not only did he published his best level yet, but he published one of the very best levels that can be found in LBPV so far. I'll tell you the truth, I'm no big fan of the genre, but this level has something... It has some charm, maybe in the way he made the perfectly fitting space background, or the way everything blends together: the gameplay mechanics with the achievements and the weaponry; but there is something for sure that makes this level stand out from the crowd. And I believe this Arcade-ish minigame should be in the queue of every sackthing who enjoys a level which uses the LBP engine for something different, fun and unique.

    yugnar

    The word unique to describe levels is thrown around a lot, particularly with the huge amount of tools and abilities on the Vita, but this level really does achieve just that - a unique experience unrivalled in lbpv. I find it's often things get bogged down in description on these spotlights, so I'll keep it simple - this is one of the top levels on the Vita, so go get it and experience this originality for yourself.

    Urban Hero - rise of sackboy
    by  scarybiscuit
    Today is hero day when any sack boy or girl can rise to become the next super hero, venture through a massive city or even find a hero cape and enjoy the tbe freedom to fly across the city. Thanks goes to smartysloan for all the endless fly and testing.

    I can happily call this an open world level! Its not just a platforming antic level with a ton of great scenery mostly covered in white, but the content that stood out to me beside the use of scanning to remove obstacles and that one huge robot you have to shoot down with a laser on that huge bridge is the choice you get when you are allowed to use the hero cape. As this urban city is massive, there is also an option to just jump off to your sack's content and just fly off a ledge at a high altitude across the whole level where you can score awesome points in the sky as well as probably landing to an earlier point of when you first started, but you have to time it right. That sense of freedom you do not see everyday and the fact you can just fly over the whole city you already bounced and wall jumped though definitely gives us a breath of fresh air.

    hyperdude95

    Look at what he have right here! There are so many ways to mess up everything when you are using the 3D glitch. And scarybiscuit took care of showing us none of them. Get ready to experience the very best 3D city that there is on Vita, and on top of that to get a level that is not purely visual-based, but that also lets you free roam in the Hero Cape in this huge masterpiece! There is in truth some lag here and there, but what truly surprises me is the fact that the Vita can even load this level without crashing. Prepare to be hero! Prepare to soar through the skies! And for those people who just don't find open world levels appealing there is an story full of platforming to follow, so everyone will be more than pleased.

    The Unfinished Swan
    by  johnbonbon
    This is a level from Unfinished Swan, Chapter 1: Part 1. I made it exactly like the game with a few tweaks of my own. Enjoy!

    I am sure some of you are familiar from the PSN game The Unfinished Swan. Well if you are, then you are going to be looking forward to an LBP version of the game. If you have not played it yet or seen anything about it yet. A slighty modified version of the story lies in this level as well the main gameplay element that made the PSN more special to its name. Get ready to grab a creatinator and shoot blank ink everywhere in a white canvas to expose level assets to make your way across this interesting world.

    hyperdude95

    I never got the chance to check out the original PSN game this level is based on, but I kinda regret it after checking out this level. Right from the start, you can feel this story is rather unique, and the way johnbonbon adapts the paint-the-blank-level gameplay to LBP truly shows that we have just grasped what LBP can truly do. So don't hesitate for a moment my fellow readers, don't be afraid to spill the ink everywhere! Go ahead and check out this aparently blank world by your own. It will only fill in when you make your appearance. And if you have no idea of what I'm talking about then just listen to me and click on that fancy queue button already!

    De l'eau, et des caillous
    by  svj0581
    Decouvre ces magnifiques montagnes riches en verdure, en cascades, et... en... rocher (bah oui, c'est des montagne quand mκme). Quand a leurs formes c'est un mystθre...

    I wonder if that level title is french, not french? Doesn't matter the language because the level speaks for itself when you start the race. Steer your karts through a great field of green with really neat structures hand-crafted to fit the scene and enjoy yourself entering a cave full of bright blue that reminds me of the movie avatar for some reason in this well paced and neat race.

    This, to me, is a very beautiful level. Everything is done so nicely. The level itself leaves you wanting more. There's a whole lot of scenery changing, going from a lush green forest to a dark cave. The cave's lit up though so you don't have to be too afraid. As for the style this creator uses, it really appeals to me. I hope it does to you all as well. Great job svj0581, keep on creating!

    -Ancient Civilizations
    by  SASI13
    Take an adventure through the most famous Civilizations of mankind's history, and have fun!

    This depicts a very important time in our era as you get to take a blast to the past to witness a period of existence before we were born. One of the main highlights of course, is the buildings and neat set pieces this era of mankind has to offer, and you will see plenty of that in this wonderful race full of ancient nostalgia whilst racing through many civilizations that made us who we are today.

    hyperdude95

    Interested in ancient history? This place brings that and more. The different civilizations you travel through are all very unique in their own way. I was looking at the scenery so much I almost forgot it was a race. You can also take the secret track off to the side to put yourself ahead of your friends. Do you have what it takes to master these Civilizations?

    Tunnel Vision
    by  scorpio1357
    Are you the King Rat, the fastest rodent in these disgusting, slimy sewer tunnels? You never know what could be floating round the next bend, you've been warned....no grief please! 1st place wins the Rat Custom Kart

    I finally got to be a rat in my life, didn't know how or what or if it was ever going to happen, but this level certainly made it closer to reality. Prepare to become a fuzzy and long tailed creature racing through the sewers in this all out rat -tastic adventure as the King rat. This was a great use of custom karts indeed, and the best part is when you get a boost power up and fire comes out of the rat's behind. Yep. Epic.

    hyperdude95

    Rats racing in a sewer, genius! This level uses customized rat karts that look great. I guess I don't have to wonder what being a rat feels like anymore. There's plenty of trash floating about though, be careful not to hit it. It'll cause you to make an ubrupt stop. So go out and be the best rat you can be.

    Also from the Showcase...
    Played everything in the Spotlight and still looking for more?
    These levels stand out from the crowd for a variety of reasons, so be sure to check them out!

    Okay, i don't intend to be mean even though i definitely will be mean, but i absolutely hated Scary's level. It, as always, includes his messy visual style i absolutely dislike and it feels like the entire level is brushed all together. And it's freaking laggy. My apologies.

    Mr. Key Inc deserves to be swapped with Urban Hero. Seriously. It's an outstanding job and Pulp did very well at conveying humour through his level without losing any properties of the level itself. Plus it's an awesome continuation of 10ish JUMPS on the Vita and great at mocking crap levels like, brushed levels, jump levels, and generally all that sorta stuff.

    There is no need to apologise when providing your thoughts or feedback, but if you find people taking offence then maybe look at re wording your thoughts.

    i.e.

    "It seems that a lot of your levels can be rather laggy, this may have something to do with the choices you have made in visual style. I find the overall design a little too messy for my tastes, and the lag that comes about from this makes it more frustrating for me. I think that your levels could really benefit from a few more pass throughs and testing before you publish."

    This ^ Obviously I am incredibly biased but MKI is a fantastic level and a lot of fun, great gameplay, great visuals, great humour and great keys. I hope you guys actually played it properly and didn't do a sackquest on it just because it's about Mr Key

    Great spotlight otherwise though, congrats to all

    I'm just going to ruin a friendship here:

    Scary doesn't deserve his picks, his levels are too messy and full of bugs.

    And if they weren't, they definitely deserved to be picked, but i can't stand his un-crisp levels getting a ribbon around the badge.

    Really. His Urban Hero level and his other work has some messily created stuff in it and really shouldn't be spotlight, nor teampick material. Teampicks should be levels where EVERYTHING is perfect -- for me, Scary does not reach this level. His levels are good, but just... not amazing or anything. I'm literally getting concerned about the fact that Mr. Key Inc isn't teampicked yet, as it was an amazing level and that's not just because it's Mr. Key.


    This thought has been bothering me for an age now. He'se definitely a good creator but his levels just aren't popping out and are being held back by their messyness. I really don't know where else to put it. I really just had to say this all for once.

    Ard, I can confirm it was not because Mr.Key was there. Everyone has their own opinions and I personally think Mr.Key is a real gem to the community.

    If you want my advice, friendship means more than a level. I'm sure the community isn't just getting fueled by levels being created, but it is also the bond and friendship we make with people from the community based on our passion with the LBP series!

    In my opinion, again just a thought, I would offer feedback to a creator's level if you personally did not fancy it. Tips can always help out a creator seeing how they can improve even more, but calling them out saying that they do not deserve something is not, in my opinion, the right approach. :/

    The vita spotlight crew have their own opinions, and after using our traditional judging system with majority vote, in our opinionated thoughts on each and every level we play, are the results for this episode of the spotlight.

    I appreciate you having your own thoughts,and I do respect your opinion of what you and others think of a level or an episode as a whole. We appreciate feedback about anything we do as well and we will take it into consideration.

    I agree. It's just a game after all, but some of the younger people don't understand that.

    We tried to help Scarybiscuit by giving him detailed feedback, but he doesn't seem to make any use of it.

    See, the thing is that very few people know the true point of reviewing and say only good things in their reviews. They don't talk about the negatives and don't give any tips either. The creator gets spoiled by positives and doesn't accept the negative reviews. Some people are too kind to say anything bad about other levels and start pouring compliments. For example: you made a level with crappy gameplay and someone tells you it's very fun, original, best level ever, Team Pick and whatnot. It makes you think that everything's alright because the players seem to like it and you repeat your mistakes in the future.

    Ah yes, I understand. It happens a lot to me outside of lbp as well.

    We do have a Feedback for Feedback thread that any creator can use if they which to receive or give out feedback, people might know it as F4F. sooo much more epic than H4h, or is it? :O

    Here is more information about that: http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/sho...k-For-Feedback

    I'm sure it would help out any creator get the full 100% about peoples' thoughts on their level.

    Bio is leaving? Is he just leaving the spotlight crew or everything?

    Well from now on when I post a new level I will post a,"bio would have queued this." I'll try to write it in a cool and creative way like he did, but that is a tall order. He is the review master. I will miss him. Hopefully he will be back soon. I imagine someone as involved in this game as he was could get burned out. I'm sure he still loves this game and the community, so he'll still be around...right?

    Also, thanks for including my level in this spotlight :-)

    I know what that is, I'm here longer than you.
    It's just people don't use it that much anymore. Also, it doesn't solve the problem with the in-game reviews.

    Yeah, Scarybiscuit is at least open to feedback. Thing is, i have to say that his levels are SO messy that i doubt i can say anything else than "dood ur lvl is messy fix et!!".

    Reviews are indeed not just saying a level is good or anything.

    Edit: Comments edited out. There is a no name/shame policy at LBPC.

    So. This is a big reason why people should understand reviewing better.

    The Community Spotlight thread is to recognize the creators and their levels.
    You may or may not agree with the choices however please be respectful to the other creators, spotlighters and the site when posting.

    Published LBP2 Levels:The Midnight Journey , County Fun Fair
    Published LBP1 Levels: Aquarium Adventure, Temple Of The Dragons, Shapes, The Goodies Store

    Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.
    The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
