"LittleBigPlanet" is a side-scrolling puzzle game where the player must navigate through a series of puzzles. The game offers both single player and multiplayer mode. The multiplayer mode features a split screen that lets up to four players play together on one screen or online. Online multiplayer can include up to four players connected through the PlayStation Network or playing on one console. Some of the trophies in "LittleBigPlanet" require you to play with other players, such as the Friendly trophy that is awarded for completing a level with at least one other player.
Complete the Introduction and Tutorial levels; these must be completed before Multiplayer mode can be played. These levels begin as soon as the game is started for the first time. You must play through these levels before reaching the Pod that serves as the game's main menu.
Select "Story" and then a level to start playing. After choosing a level, you have the option to "Play Online" or "Play."
Choose "Play Online" to invite friends from the Playstation Network to join you. After selecting "Play Online," select "Friends" and then choose a friend you want to invite. Select "Invite to Game."
Choose "Play" to begin a level by yourself. Additional players can join this offline game by pressing the "PS" button on a second, third or fourth controller. You will be prompted to select a PlayStation user profile, which can be any profile saved on the console or a guest profile for players without a saved profile. This also works in Online mode if the game does not already have the maximum of four players; only the first player must have a PlayStation Network account.
