Little Big Planet 2 Makes Playable Pac-Man, World Dominance Next

by Paul Strauss

I always loved the world builder in Little Big Planet, which let you create all sorts of wondrous environments which go far beyond what the game was designed to do. As Media Molecule saw what people were trying to do, they amped up the creation tools with the upcoming Little Big Planet 2. There are already tons of interesting worlds starting to show up over on YouTube from the beta version of LBP2, and this one is probably my favorite so far – a fully-playable Pac-Man.

Posted by YouTuber TheFinalBurst (but built by someone named Andrmt) , this LBP2 Pac-Man not only lets you play a fully-functional version of the original arcade game, it even plays the original Pac-Man theme, and keeps score as you gobble dots and catch ghosts. It even goes one better than the original, letting a 2nd player control one of the ghosts. Here’s a video clip of the game in action…

Pretty slick, eh? Sure it’s not perfect, and the concept was attempted back in the original LBP already. But the very fact that you can make something like this inside of the LBP2 engine gets me all excited about the prospects of an entire retro arcade being built inside the game. This is all thanks to LBP2 incredibly flexible level-building tools, which now include some really advanced logic capabilities, as shown in the tutorials below…

Heck, after watching those videos, I’m pretty sure you’d be able to build an entire, functional computer system inside of your LBP2 world – maybe this is where Skynet gets its start?

If you want to get in on the action, you can pre-order LBP2 over at Amazon now. It hits on January 18, 2011. While you’re waiting for your copy to arrive, why not sit back and enjoy some Little Big Planet 2 Assassin’s Creed:
