Gradius Homage Is One Of The Most Impressive LittleBigPlanet 2 Levels

By Spencer . August 27, 2012 . 2:35pm

The creator of the Gradius museum for LittleBigPlanet2 topped that tribute with a playable Gradius game. Level designer Gyueen created four weapon sets, two levels, and bosses with cores to shoot. If you have LittleBigPlanet 2 you have to try Gradius LBP2 Edition "Maximum Speed."

    That’s pretty awesome, it’s always impressive seeing what people with skills to utilizing these kinds of tool sets can come up with >wA<;; Maybe they'll make an original shmup with what they've learned making this owo

      Your avatar must have seen this video and that’s why he’s going O_O.  That’s all I can think of :P. 

  • This makes me want to play Otomedius for some reason.

    I’m not a fan of shmups, but I can easily respect those who put the amount of effort into developing it on an game creation engine like LBP2’s where the creating anything custom is far more difficult than creating your average platformer.

    He could have made the same game on a PC in no time at all, but shows a lot of dedication and patience to do the same on LBP.

  • This is Little Big Planet 2?  I must of expected everything to be made out of arts and crafts.

    This looks fantastic, not sure if I feel guilty buying a game for homages that look more fun than the original content the game it was built on but that is what the developers must of thought ahead of time.

    I’m a fan of Gradius, and that is awesome. I had no idea Little Big Planet 2 was this capable.

  • That is incredible! Hats off to Gyueen, that is some serious talent!
