    The Outskirts of the Shrine of Worship

    [ONE PLAYER ONLY!] The journey of the Chosen, toward the Highland Hills, to the Whispering Woods to break the Three Seals. Music by

    Everytime I see that stone golem, I have to admit, I do the ole spongebob meme smile, cause it is usually surrounded by an outstanding level. This is definetly one of those types of platformers that relies more on interactivity then dexterity. I always love a great platformer that forces me to actually use my noggin to get to that splendid scoreboard at the end, but not too hard on the noggin that causes me frustration. This was a happy medium that of difficulty meets pleasure. Kudos to you Shookie!

    L-I-M-I

    It’s always a great pleasure to play the levels in this series by Shookie. He creates that perfect blend of platforming and puzzles, something to get you thinking as you journey through the beautiful almost ICO-like backdrops. The puzzles are clever but never frustrating and the beauty of the setting makes the whole experience relaxing as well as interesting. Excellent, thoughtful and inspiring work.

    In your notebook
    by  konnron
    Open your notebook. What is written in it ? -[Platformer difficulty-medium] ノートを広げて中を見てみて。あなたのノートの中にはどんなことがかかれていますか?

    Splendid, Marvelous, tantalizing, with a touch of Euphoria. Beautiful while intensely enjoyable. I knew within the first 2 minutes this was going to be one of those levels that leaves an imprint in your mind. The colors, the animations, the whole kitten caboodle was outright gorgeous. If you haven't already enjoyed this level, I would hurry up and hit that queue button. Kudos Konnron!!

    L-I-M-I

    This level is so packed with creativity, colour and above all charm that it’s just guaranteed to leave you with a huge smile on your face and your zest for life restored (if it needed restoring XD). I loved the bold lines, blocks of colour and all the lovely characters waiting for you in each new screen. I only wish I had a notebook as brim-full of ideas and artistry as this. I enjoyed every moment in the magical world of Konnron’s imagination.

    Sense Me Maybe?
    by  DawnBreaker_23
    Red laser, blue laser, yellow laser! What do they do? Explore each laser's function as you progress through this laser lab! Help from

    Geez, I thought I have seen just about every type of puzzle induced platformers that rely on player sensors and then dawnbreaker comes and introduces some more nifty obstacles that combine dexterity meets timing meets sackthing. This is a well thought out platformer that builds upon years of experience to bring us even more compounded ideals of platforming we have seen recently. I am loving these dual ideas in level these days including this one for sure. Kudo Breaker of Dawn

    L-I-M-I

    I’m a sucker for a good puzzle level and this one is top-notch. You find yourself in a dimly lit futuristic facility and the only way out is to understand and then manipulate the different properties of the red, yellow and blue lasers in your path. With a combination of experimentation, observation, timing, and skill you gradually learn the patterns and master the puzzles. It’s cleverly put together with a nice difficulty progression as each new puzzle adds a new layer of complexity. I loved the concept and the cool and faintly menacing atmosphere. An absorbing, entertaining level that you shouldn’t miss.

    Fists Of Freedom (1P only)
    by  MicGorbachev
    Every story has an ending. Every hero has a villain. Every adventure has a finale... Sequel to Fists Of Fury. 1 player only to avoid lag.

    You ever play a level and wish there was a sequel and then of a sudden pops into existence the sequel you have been hoping for? Well it just happened and it blew freakin mind, again. Your hero begins exactly where you left off, it even has an overlap to get you up to speed if can't fully remember how the first left off. I found this to be a genius idea!!! yes that is 3 exclamation marks there. Kudos to Mic-ey

    L-I-M-I

    A great sequel to a great series. MicGorbachev is back with more thrilling action from the mean streets of Chinatown. From the first notes of the Hong Kong Phooey theme, the mood is set and you’re all ready for a new kung fu adventure, battling bad guys with droopy moustaches and bad attitude. You find yourself once again dodging in and out of the alleyways of a beautifully realised Chinatown with those gorgeous neon signs lighting up the dark. You have some great kung fu moves to play with too – those baddies don’t stand a chance. Charming, polished and just downright fun to play.

    HEAVY ARMAMENT
    by  smasher1116789
    Come test your skills in this old school inspired shootem up! If you like twin stick shooters and lots of explosives then this is the level for you! Take a run through enemy territory in this tank shooter with unconventional ammo. This level was inspired by many old school shooters. I was only able to make it single player due to the effects. It even has slowdown with one player. Should work with mutiple players as spectators, but might have even more lag. Have Fun!!

    Did I just play LBP or a mobile app of some sorts that features airstrikes, explosions, weapon upgrades, and some sweet freaking gaming. I mean take a tank make explosions, seen it hundred times before, but not like this. Definitely a Michael Bay *hate him or love him, he's got the best explosions in the biz) meets Jackal from NES. Kudos to Smash

    L-I-M-I

    Just wow. This is one very impressive tank shooter. These topdown shooter levels can sometimes seem pedestrian but not this one. Smooth as butter controls, plenty of explosions and some great details make it a blast to play. There are heaps of different power ups/upgrades and ammo types and plenty of thrilling action. There’s an awesome respawn mechanic too…which I tested a lot XD I’m useless at this kind of level but despite my lack of skill I enjoyed every action-packed moment.

    STAR WARS: Ewok Village: Part One: err...Etc!
    by  julesyjules
    No broccoli were harmed during the making of this level. Missing a few cutscenes and whatnot due to lack of time, but enjoy! (I hope). 1P only.

    I was a bit nervous about playing this as the Ewok village level was my favourite level in the LBP1 incarnation of this series. I needn’t have worried though. The Ewoks may not have had quite the same handmade charm and humour as in the LBP1 version but the level design is superb. I love the midnight blue backdrop and atmospheric lighting and the broccoli make even better trees than the original dolls heads. The gameplay is the star here however – inventive, clever and challenging. It opens with a bang with the speed bike chase and then my timing and skills (or lack of them rather :P) get tested in earnest by a series of platforming obstacles. Bouncing up through moving platforms is harder than it looks XD. This series has been one the absolute highlights of LBP and I do hope julesyjules can be prevailed upon to continue it in LBP3.

    shropshirelass

    A big grin seeing the series in continuation as LBP will never be the same without it. I start the level and see that this is probably the last level to the saga. While I was a bit sad and hoped that it may be untrue, i did not want that to interfere with my enjoyment for these entries and this one is just as awesome as that others. Enter a creature fested forest where you will be jumping on tree-like pads and ziplining across the treetops as you feel like Tarzan but with a lightsaber. Challenging and fun is once again equally balanced with an epic opening and closing keeping us on out toes. If its the last entry, its ok. But I really do hope etc.. still continues to be etc.. in LittleBigPlanet 3.

    Midway - Air Superiority [1p]
    by  Shaggy40000
    While patrouilling around Midway you encounter a fleet of the Navy. Use the weaponry of your A6M to defend against several navy aircrafts and to destroy frigates and battleships.

    Shaggy40000’s latest level is an awesome dogfighting simulator which has you battling to shoot down enemy ships and planes in the battle of the Midway. It looks absolutely stunning, the graphic detail is great and that and the cool sound effects all make playing this an atmospheric and absorbing experience. I’m a terrible pilot and may have failed to shoot down any planes (oh the shame) but the AI is brilliantly done and works very well… for those with patience and more skill than I have to master the controls. Very impressive and fun level to play.

    shropshirelass

    Take joy in a intense and well created flight simulator that will have you shoot torpedoes under the water to destroy the annoying enemy tanks whilst flying around in the sky dodging incoming fire from the aerial danger from above. A simple tutorial is well blended in the beginning of a fight so even beginner will get an equal grip just like a master pilot may already have. Try to beat your highscore in this awesome 3D like shooter as the challenge never gets boring.

    Despair
    by  axoh17
    On your way home your road suddenly changes. A storm rolls in and an old Mansion appears where once there was only forest. Something is in the window. Something is watching. [Best played in a dark room with the sound on Max, Strictly 1 Player] Challenge yourself to unlock every achievement which provides even more storyline.

    Its time for a scary story. One full of wonder and one that has part of your brain wishing to go back to the beginning because its a creepy atmosphere that requires a braved one to complete the puzzle and discover the truth behind the curtains. The storm arises increasing the fear in ones nerves and going around the place finding keys unlocks even more surprises and easter eggs. I challenge you to complete it unlocking all of the achievements as well, and it is a perfect time to play this amongst Halloween.

    hyperdude95

    Axoh17 first Vita level is quite a great (and scary for sure) one. After our favorite sackchum finds himself trapped in a misterious hanuted mansion, it is up to you to discover what secrets lurk beneath those dark wood walls before it is too late. Great storytelling, magnific ambience and a rather fun sense of exploration and will of getting all of the achievemnts make this level stand out from the rest easily. You might want to play this in the dark for extra fun!

    Grave Runner (1 PLAYER)
    by  lordwarblade
    Run, jump, slide, shoot and fly in this side scrolling runner set in the darkness of a graveyard world. There are 13 levels that increase in difficulty and 4 upgrades to unlock along the way. Some levels will require specific unlocks to progress so you will need to use all your skill aquiring the valuable sacks of coins found in each level.

    I was just telling bio the other day that this guy NEEDS to be a mobile games developer. I don't know how he does it, but i felt like I was on my phone playing an endless runner that is halloween themed. A free game for buying a game kind of thing and the experience was easily and amazingly fullfilled. You are running through graves sliding shooting and jumping over obstacles in your path to make it into the end while trying to grab bags of loot which gives you upgrades for even more powers like wings for double jump and more. A whole bunch of options and levels await you in this professionally made halloween like runner game it will be a major disappointment if you miss it!

    hyperdude95

    Lordwarblade does it again. Do I really have to write a review about his work? Ever since his first level this creator hasn't stopped to amaze us with every new creation of his. Control a beautifully animated Van Helsing-like character while he roams the underworld in the search of (what else?) money bags. Shoot monsters, transform into ravens, fly, die and repeat. This level is a true masterpiece that shows just what LBPV is capable of. Beware though, it had been long time since I last found a level so addictive, and with so many sub-levels available (and they ain't easy) you will find hours of fun in this single masterpiece.

    Time Warp Chronicles Chapter 11: The Final Battle
    by  JustinArt
    The former cadres of Zane are a true threat to earth, and it's up to Time Protector and Zane to stop them from colliding to Earth with a space station. Get ready for a four stage boss battle to end all battles of "Time Warp Chronicles".

    Ok folks, there is a tear in my eye. After 11 chapters and one intense journey, the time Chronicles finally comes to an end with a epic multi-boss finale. Justinart, you started this a while ago and now its ending, you brought the series to us as a dedicated person and you finally wrote the last pages. You made it, congratulations! Its sad to see the series come to an end but your effort was amazing and we are very pleased it was created from the top to bottom! Everyone, get ready, this is the most intense time battle yet all in the name of the Time Protector and friends.

    hyperdude95

    One huge applause to JustinArt for being one of the few creators who have the patience to create and mantain a great standard of originality and quality troughout a whole level series all by his own! It is the time to end this journey folks. Prepare for the most epic 4 staged boss battle in the whole level series, and get to know if Time Protector will save Earth from those aliens in time!

    The Last Few
    by  scarybiscuit
    Only a few survive, the planet is over run by the unknow, a faint message calling for The Last Few goes out its time to enter a eyecandy level. Thanks for testing; smartysloan, mdoodle22 TheNotorious-187

    Is this another apocalypse type of situation where people scream for their lives? Yep, and its awesome. The Last Few ( keeps reminding me of The Last of Us) is a journey admist a blue atmosphere where the planet is being taken over by zombie-like/telephone shaped creatures while you are climbing and avoiding these beasts by causing a ringing sound to distract them in this intense survival adventure.

    hyperdude95

    Ok, I have to officially declare scarybiscuit one of the best visual creators in Vita ever. That being said, this is no exception. Welcome to a post apocalyptic world, awesome scenery aside (and it really looks and hears beautiful), the whole ambience really feels genuinely spooky! Avoid some alien telephone-like monsters ('nuff said) while making your way to your only hope of escape. Queue this level already!

    Echoes 3
    by  TheNotorious-187
    Creators confession - the original idea for the Echoes sequel was for it to feature multiple stages, each introducing different elements of gameplay. Although this idea was dropped for the final cut a second stage was built. I've now had this sitting on my moon for longer than i can remember and finally thought it was time to get it out there. It is a bit on the short side but i hope you enjoy none the less. This level fetures wall jumping and sliding, double jumping, and air jumps.

    Yet another stunning silhouette adventure with Echo, my favorite round creature with many cute abilities and funny yet adorable sounds. After taking a few seconds to remind myself of the past adventures and moves I went on another exciting journey full of challenge, eye candy and awesome quotes relating to the story of echo. I'm glad there is more to try out in this artistic piece of awesomeness, its a gem that will never get hold as well as our returning smiling faces once we meet echo once again.

    hyperdude95

    One just can't get tired of a level series that is just so full of quality. Return to the world of Echo for the third and (maybe?) last time, in a level that excels yet again in gameplay, visuals, music, and ambience. This episode has been full of journey endings, and Echo's final chapter, even though a little bit short, is completely worth of its role. This can also be one of the most demanding challenges that Echo has faced so far so be prepared to test everything you've learned and escape the facility once and for all!

    Touch platformer
    by  hm83
    Get ready for an old school platformer with a bit of touch interaction. Hit switches, drag platforms and melt ice.

    Wait. Just wait. You are telling me this level has less than 10 plays? Ok, we need to change that. This creator might be new, but he know what's going on for sure. This creation is amazing. That's pretty much the perfect way to describe it. Simplistic graphics that come just perfectly for the whole mood of this level, this is a platformer full of Vita-only gameplay, and it excels in creating a good-length medium difficulty challenge that can remind us of why some loved Vita so much in the first place. The bubble placing is specially brilliant, it allows for may bubble combo creations so that players can hunt for the first places in the scoreboard. This is an amazing creation that needs more plays. Do me and yourself a favor and queue it already.

    HW. Halloween mystery
    by  XdsmmatX
    HW. Created for Lbpcentral halloween contest. [1P] You are invited at a Halloween party in the old manor, but when you arrive,people disappeared. You are trapped in the manor now and you must find an escape. Just enjoy and Happy Halloween

    One of my favorite creators always this game into its full limits, and that signature of his is something I expect none of the less. Its halloween time, but its not a battle or a race with the festive monsters, pumpkins and what not. You will be like Scooby-doo and pratke in a first person mystery as you walk around discovering clues, unlocking doors inside and outside of a spooky house that is full of many surprises. You sir, XdsmmatX, have done it yet again.

    Transformers
    by  valious2corvus
    Before the war, the newly crafted robots would test their skills in the Β«8 player battle arenaΒ». "Level includes" color coded doors and grabbable cubes used as keys (grabinator, hold L1). And introducing, driftable walls.

    This is a battle where you will have to stop on your feet no matter what place you are in because there is certainly more than meets the eye. Inside a ship where our nostalgic autobots and decepticons rain with amazing set pieces staying true to its main series makes this battle a artistic and destructive piece of experience in this wonderful tribute of our childhood.

    A wonderful wipEout like track.

    WIPEOUT! And wow what a look-a-like it is! Karting placed its magic to being formed into an iconic Sony game and it pulled off amazingly well. You get the familiar race ships that are in the game which are beautifully hand crafted and the tracks seem all twisty and turn just like another wipEout game. The X's give you weapons and the boosters give you boost, and everything is just like everything you will see in a typical wipEout game.
