LittleBigPlanet user recreates Plants vs Zombies, Popcap probably mad

We’ve seen many crazy and downright wonderful creations from the LittleBigPlanet community over the years, from roller coasters to a thousand different remakes of Super Mario World 1-1. But have we ever gotten THIS close to a full recreation of an existing game? LittleBigPlanet user ‘Foggles’ has worked his magic to create Plants vs Zombots, a game where the user must place down different plants which fight off incoming enemies, serve as barricades and regenerate Sun spots which are essential for buying more plants. Sound familiar? You bet it does! It’ll sound even more familiar when you hear the in-game music, completely remade in LittleBigPlanet using the games Sequencer tool. Hit the jump for the video!

LittleBigPlanet games don't replace the originals. They are tributes to them. I played PEGGLE on LBP2 and thought it was fun, so I bought the actual game. So Popcap can eat it, cause I have always looked at LBP-made games as a way to idolize, support, and advertise for other greats.

thereapersson4849d ago

Exactly. Nobody is going to forsake buying the real game just so they can play a remake tribute in Little Big Planet.

I thought the LBP Peggle video was awesome, but in no way would it ever come close to replacing the real thing. The fact that we can even come close to replicating other popular titles in this game is mindblowing, however.

I'd say they'd be proud someone took the time to honor their game

DORMIN4849d ago

I don't understand why PopCap would be mad?

If anyone has played both this level AND bought PvZ like myself, you would know that the LBP2 version is so good that it can pretty much be considered a demo.

This saves the dev money on promoting the game and having to pay for the demo bandwidth on PSN.

But now I don't have to buy it again for the PS3 :P

This is free advertising for PopCap, and they should be ecstatic! Here's the description for the level http://lbp.me/v/x252cr : Foggles is practically selling the game for them.

and it's not like the game is as complete and functional as the original one, it's like playing super mario X and compare it to a nintendo made mario game...

still, very good, very ingenious to be able to make such a replica on LBP...

deafwing4849d ago

the recreations are awesome renditions; if popcap gets mad they need to get over themselves

jack_burt0n4849d ago

I doubt popcap is anything but proud of the compliment because its a MASSIVE compliment when really talented ppl emulate something so well.

NaiNaiNai4849d ago

Its funny that this is okay.

But crack your own ps3 is illegal. XD

oh the hypocrisy.

thereapersson4849d ago

Are you purposely trying to make yourself look stupid, or are you just trolling poorly?

I don't care if this gets marked as "personal attack", or whatever. Someone has to say something.

/facepalm

Neo Nugget4849d ago
