There have been well over 8 million stages created in Sony’s juggernaut platforming franchise, but to find the best LittleBigPlanet levels, you have to dig deep. So deep, that you get taken on a strange, quirky ride into the unknown and back again. Well, it’s not quite that sinister, but you get the point.
The LittleBigPlanet community has created some weird stuff over the years, and if you’re looking for level ideas, you’ve no shortage of inspiration.
So, the next time you boot up your PS3, PS4 or (god forbid) PS Vita, to which LittleBigPlanet user-created levels should you gravitate? Excellent question. In order to help you choose between the millions and millions of options you have available, IGCritic has helpfully scoured the gamer-sphere to bring you our 10 best LittleBigPlanet levels you simply have to play.
Dance With Cats
Jeez, I wonder what this level entails? Probably cats. And dancing. And weird, hypnotic music that slowly seeps through your ears and takes over your brain… it’s a small wonder I can sleep at night, sometimes. Dance With Cats is an enjoyable platform adventure, but it’s the theme that makes this one special. Cat lovers rejoice, but if you’ve ever suspected that your feline friend is harboring a desire to murder you swiftly, then this user created level will only reaffirm those fears.
As LittleBigPlanet level ideas go, combining pirates and an RPG wasn’t half bad. Pirate RPG allows you to sail the mighty seas, explore pirate shanty towns and search for hidden treasure. Not bad for an afternoon in front of your PS4.
Little Big Computer
This is living proof that the best LittleBigPlanet levels restricted to pure platforming gameplay. More a concept than an actual level, Little Big Computer is a fully working electronic calculator. The first one was built way back in 2008, but has since been iterated on many times.
Yes, this exists. Rather than lamenting that fact, let’s embrace it! Up to 4 of your buddies will begin on a deteriorating ship of dreams, before it begins to crumble and the real fun begins. It makes for some hilarious moments as the Titanic ship flips over and propels you into the water, and it’s actually quite challenging to endure. A worthy contender for the top user created level.
Five Nights At Freddy’s
Five Nights At Freddy’s took the video game world by storm when it launched a few years back, so it was no surprise to see it pop up in LittleBigPlanet. What was a surprise, however, was how well it worked. It made the cartoony nature of sackboy feel scary and threatening, which is no small feat. You could even play with a friend, which made the scares all the more enjoyable and propelled this onto our list of LittleBigPlanet levels list.
