Little Big Thief Lord Bafford by Fjonan
Fjonan's new and improved version of his level. I was very excited to play this as the author and myself have been discussing how the level could be improved...... and improved it has.
This level is quite classic in it's design (think old NES games) but it has tons of variety in gameplay... You'll find yourself jumping on a technical level... controlling vehicles.. defeating giant guards and grabbing onto contraptions. While all this would already be enough to satisfy your average LBP player there's more. If you look VERY carefully you will be able to find secrets in hidden pockets throughout the level...
Now all this would've been more than enough to warrant a high recommendation but on top of all this deliciousness this level also looks absolutely stunning. Fantastic atmospheric effects which is helped by amazing lighting and great use of the color palette. Every area is beautifully designed... It all looks and feels like a real proper level. Extremely polished.
I have zero complaints about this. An all round amazing LBP experience.
