They say it's ASmallWorld (what do you mean you're not a member yet? It's jet-set baby!), and now it's a LittleBigPlanet after the people at Playstation have put their creative thinking caps on and come up with the latest game on the PS3. LittleBigPlanet not only enables players to play the game, but also provides them with the tools to create their own levels and share them with others on the PlayStation Network (PSN).
Comedian Jason Byrne, musician Cathy Davey, TV presenter Baz Ashmawy and DJ Ray Foley have created their very own LBP levels which are now available online and were revealed for the first time at an exclusive launch event in The Odeon, Harcourt Street last week.
Jason introduced ‘Annoyance’, a level that he says “brings out the evil” in him with a challenging mix of electric currents, fire and swinging monkeys. He’s also created a second level, ‘Gadgets’ which makes effective use of switches, bombs, rockets, hinges, springs and photos and is sure to entertain all those who play it online.
‘Baz’s Christmas Stocking’ presents a festive themed LBP level based in a winter wonderland where Sackboy has to follow Santa and deliver him some Panadol before he goes off on his Christmas eve travels.
Cathy Davey has created Oohland, a land with giant snails, monster slides, secret passages, frozen giant Oohmen, perilous plains and points a plenty.
Falling For Foley is Ray Foley’s world of puzzles, bad guys and poison gas that takes you to the four corners of the blank LittleBigPlanet canvas and manages to give players a sense of the sheer scale of possibility in the game's create mode - nothing is too small, and the only limit is your imagination!
Indeed, as big Bill Cullen would say, ya havta believe in yourself.
