First Impressions: Run Sackboy! Run!

Run Sackboy! Run! is a free to play endless puzzle platform game staring Sackboy, the knitted hero of the popular PS3 LittleBigPlanet series.

LBP2 gamers will instantly recognize the creativity sucking vacuum cleaner Negativitron, and it’s out to get Sackboy again.

The game consists of you controlling the free scrolling Sackboy as he runs through three iconic worlds from the LittleBigPlanet series: The Gardens, Avalonia and The Canyons.

As you help Sackboy speed through the game, avoiding various hazards, you can collect stickers to unlock prizes and bubbles to buy special costumes, power-ups, and upgrades.

You can also play against your friends through the game’s Facebook-integrated social features and scoreboards.

The mini game is a predecessor to the upcoming release of LittleBigPlanet3 for the PS3 and PS4 in Quarter 4. Some of the game unlocks (namely the costumes) will be available to your LittleBigPlanet pop-it in LBP3.

As an avid player of the LittleBigPlanet series,  I have found this game highly addictive. The game features common concepts that are fluid throughout LBP games including the game space layout, design, bubble collection and hazards. It includes many different ways to interact with the Sackboy, allowing for the player to experience moments of intense concentration and frustration in order to avoid being “popped”.

I will have a full reviews of Run Sackboy! Run! here on once I have logged a few more hours into the game. But till then you can go ahead and download the game now for free on your iOS, Android or PS Vita handheld devices (availability in certain regional markets may vary).
