The 50 best LittleBigPlanet levels ever made – the most amazing things you’ve built
The best LBP weird levels
Another ‘how did they manage that?’ one, Tynz21’s Dark Souls-inspired 2D hack ’n’ slash sees you control a knight as he battles ghosts, demons and what appear to be leather-bondage-gear-wearing torture victims in dank corridors and caverns.
Bora Bora Island
This creator hopes you enjoy your vacation to the island of Bora Bora, where you race jetskis, ride dolphins, surf waves, shoot hoops, scuba dive, play volleyball on white sands and parasail over the ocean.
Sackie In The House
The maker recreated their own house for this lovely little level, and uses the space in a number of interesting ways. You race rubber duckies in bathtubs, bounce on jets from leaking pipes, and even spawn from the bog. Nice.
Gal-Axis – Tilt Based Survival
This one uses the DualShock’s Sixaxis functionality. Rather than flicking the sticks to move your ship around the hexagonal tube (Tempest was clearly a major inspiration here), you tilt the controller instead.
Pinball wizards will feel right at home on Shweetdude’s electronic table. Scores buzz, lights flash and there’s even a miniature hang glider at one point. It’s so authentic you can almost smell the crusty Who fans queuing up behind you.
Slender – House
Slender. The very name strikes fear into those cool enough to be aware of the meme. It’s not his presence that scares in this first-person corridor-creep, but his absence – the fuzzy static and notes pinned to walls that read, “no, no, no”. Chilling.
Angry Whale Encounter
Let this be a lesson to us all. If you go whale hunting, an angry Jonas can (and will) burst from the ocean and chomp down on your boat – unless you harpoon it in the mouth and escape in a helicopter, as in CyriusTheVirus’ imaginative level.
Little Big Calculator
Built from 610 magnetic switches, 500 wires, 430 pistons and 70 emitters, Upsilandre’s fully functioning calculator is a perfect example to show friends just how versatile LBP is. Of course, if you just spend your time writing 80085 over and over, that’s your business.
Vietnam: FPS Advanced
A ‘Nam-themed carnival shoot-out. In this blaster you aim for both moving targets and cover-taking Sackbots to bag points. You can choose between a handgun and automatic rifle, and even peer down iron sights. It’s also playable solo or in co-op.
FreeFallin’ [3D Skydiving]
This needs to be seen to be believed. After discovering how to make Sackboy fall into the screen, Fotosynthesis1 puts the technique to good use in an ingenious skydiving mini-game, where the aim is to hurtle through a series of red and white hoops.
