Here are this week’s MmPicks!
Can you make sense of this insane relativity? Four stages of mind and finger straining puzzle. Take the right route at the end for one prize or the other. . . . . . (Make sure the level is level before letting go after each turn)
It had to happen. Mix the grid mode with some Escher'esque materials and you get an Escher level. Like looking at Eschers illustrations, after awhile your brain hurts after playing this level. The Creator has designer the whole level as a rotating maze where you have to activate switches and negotiate complex paths. A brilliantly concieved and executed level.
In the Belly of the Beast (Demonic Dark) : The dreaded Great Whale has swallowed Jonah. Your task is simple: rescue him and get out alive. But at what cost? Are you ready to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the life of just one man? (WARNING: Sack Violence)
This is another example of great use of the Colour Correction tool. This level is set inside a huge whale where Sackboy has to save other Sackpeople who are trapped 'in the belly of the beast'. We love the rotating heart, the twisting/rotating paths and the crushing machine, never has a level made me feel so guilty :(
Japanese Garden : A Japanese themed level. Two pathes lead to the finish, one is only accessible for social Sackboys and Girls. I hope you enjoy it and feel free to leave a comment
Sometimes simplicity works really well and this level proves it. Set in a Japanese Garden (duh) this level has 2 different paths, one for social players and the other for single players. We played both and both paths were fun and varied (beat our score if you can!). In particular to loved the floating platforms and the slidey ride at the end. Overall, a well paced level that fun for any amount of players.
So, so cute. This level reminds of the Pyramid levels in Mario and the cuteness factor is so high it makes pink bunnies that go hoppity hop look like dirty evil gnomes. The Creator has done something very daring and made the whole level from the basic yellow sponge material and I think it really works well. There's lots of varied gameplay, the Paintinator is used well, theres a Boss, lots of secrets and some Co-op areas. All in all, a great level that is great for all ages (but I think kids will love it, we did!). Check out all his other levels as well (El Bunker, Fort Monkey, etc), all have a unique style that is instantly recognisable. Magnifico! Check out his artwork too.
The Movies! : City lights, steamy train platforms, and that magical moment when the lights dim and the curtains open. It's The Movies! Movies will be out of sync in online play. And one warning: The trolley: Beware the trolley. Thanks to Mikey-Flies and SubGnosis!
This is one of the most intriguing levels visually, it dissolves the line between games and fine art.I love the movies, the attention to detail and the humour.' Need I say more?
Venture into The Palace of Asheron! Many do not survive this adventure. Only the brave may apply!
Another level submitted via a comment (Hey, Rayvolution, comment on this blog, we hardly ever read comments on LittleXim's amazingly empty level, sorry) this is another winner. Again, based on a templey theme this level starts out quite plain but then just gets better and better. This is probably one of the only levels that reproduces Kengo's Serpent Shrine gameplay and totally and utterly succeeds. We loved all the interlocking steps, the piston maze, the bomb rolling puzzle (that must have taken ages to balance, but well worth it) and of course the rolling snakes. A must play if ever I've seen one.
CIimb the world tree. (Note: Thanks for all the positive messages and comments about this level. But as you see, this level was moderated by some unknown reason, so I'm re-hosting it. Hope it'll get all the love it had before :)
This representation of the world tree makes excellent use of lighting to set the atmosphere, some beautiful organic structures, and point dispenser to die for. It's an absolutely beautiful level with some very nice gameplay concepts to match.
