LITTLEBIGPLANET PS VITA

Sony
Vita

Geez, indecisive much? Is it little, or is it big? Make up your bloody minds!

Regardless, TeensyHugeGlobe is ace. Maybe itís implying that the Vitaís diminutive? No, itís also on PS3. Maybe they shrunk their PS3 like an old Twisties packet in an oven then? Nah... Maybe itís because the lead character Ė Sackboy (or girl!) - is wee in a comparatively hefty world? Meh, it doesnít matter.

What does matter is that IttybittyProdigiousAsteroid suits the Vita like suits suit Don Draper. Touch controls that are often cumbersome are at home Ė and sensibly a marker indicates where digits are plopped upon the back screen. Now thatís admirable smartipantsiness.

Delve into the Stephen Fry-fuelled story mode, tolerate a tad too much cut-sceney stuff and quite some tutorially mishegas and five fairly-biggish platformer levels that are both traditional and fresh remain. As with previous incarnations, collecting stickers like a crazed collectastical thingís the go as you A-to-B trundle, all in the name of whatever the levelís advisor wants it to be in the name of. Plus you can use Vitaís camera to snap whatever you consider snapworthy and wallpaper the joint. Meanwhile, puzzles aplenty pop en route, as do side mission minigames, including a funktastic variation on the appallingly-spelled Whac-a-Mole.

However, MinisculeGinormousSphereís more about community. Sure you can share story progress with other travellers, but level creation, sharing, ranking and Ė umm, thatís kinda it - is where things are really at. We recently discussed with a friend intrigue at kiddy fascination with Minecraft. Seriously, let them loose on the creator in this gorgeous LittleBigPuppy and you may forget that they exist. With added touch controls itís even more flowy and inspiring, too.

As somebody exactly like the delightfully ambrosial Mr Fry might opine, taste every fruit of every tree in the garden at least once. It is an insult to creation not to experience it fully...

take me back to the start...
