Just like previous entries in the franchise, players control Sackboy (or Sackgirl) platforming through a variety of different stages with a 2.5D perspective. It also features mini-games and multiplayer options including four-player online competitive or cooperative gameplay.
Taking advantage of the Vita's touchscreen two players can use competitive games. The touch-screen can be used to draw objects and platforms in the game world. The rear touchpad is used for pushing objects toward the player and creating platforms out of parts of the world. Turn-based games are also available through the "Pass & Play" feature. While keeping the same tools as the other versions of the game, the Vita version has some tools to take advantage of the added technology including the Layer Tool, Touch Material, Touch Cursor, the Touch Tweaker, Touch Sensor & Motion Recorder. Other tools new to the franchise include a Dephysicalise Tool, Sticker Scrubber and a Jelly tool.
Play. Create. Share.
Just like other LittleBigPlanet games players can create and share levels online via the Playstation Network. The game includes the same tools as those from LittleBigPlanet 2 (with the exception of some DLC tools). Costumes bought for LBP2 to customise your own Sackboy are Cross Buy/Cross Play meaning that you can also use them on the Vita version.
Just like other LittleBigPlanet games the soundtrack has a mix of original music and licensed tracks.
