I’ve played hundreds of great levels in LittleBigPlanet and have talked about a lot of them here on Rocket Cheetah using words like ‘amazing’ and ‘brilliant’, but there are only a handful of creations which I would go so far as to call a ‘masterpiece’. The Adventures of Outback Jack is one of that handful.

Happy New Year! Here’s a montage video looking back on some of the games that came to PlayStation in 2012.
It’s becoming a bit of a trend around here that I find a level I really like but don’t have the skills to actually finish and record a video of. It started with Stellakris’ Aleste remake and now I’m dragging xSLEVENx into it.

oh noes!! teh grammer guy iz gon missn adn itz up to u 2 find im!
Mines Of Boreas is a fast-paced race platformer that’s as exciting to play as it is to look at.
