If you are a fan of Sony games, you are very likely to know Sackboy, the soft plush character from the Little Big Planet franchise. Sackboy and Sackgirl are making their way to your smartphone or tablet. Take them on an endless runner adventure…
The mobile gaming scene has become the place to be. Nearly all major publishers are making sure that their iconic brands are represented in at least one of the many app stores - be it iTunes, Google Play, or Windows Phone. Even brands that were exclusive to one console are now bridging the gaps between platforms. Take Sony’s Little Big Planet franchise as an example. Sackboy, Sackgirl (or, more generally, Sackperson) have now made their way to smartphones and tablets.
Run Sackboy! Run! is Sony’s mobile installment of the Little Big Planet franchise. In contrast to the console versions, the app will focus on a genre that has predominantly been established on mobile devices. The endless runner will have you run, jump, and dodge obstacles in many of the iconic settings from the Little Big Planet universe. While the console games find a balance between creating levels and running through them yourself, the mobile game focuses on fast-paced tracks. Quick reflexes, attention, and a lot of practice are required to make it through worlds such as The Gardens, The Canyons, and Avalonia.
In Run Sackboy! Run! you face the Negativitron once again. Whoever played Little Big Planet 2 should be familiar with this nasty vacuum cleaner that doesn’t just suck up dirt and dust, but creativity. How are you supposed to achieve anything in this gaming universe without creativity? In the mobile game, you will encounter Negatriviton around every corner as he is creating pure chaos in Craftworld.
As you dash and run through Craftworld, you should not only focus on making it through the levels unharmed. Collect as many bubbles as you can on your way. Only then will you be able to purchase special costumes and upgrades. Especially costumes come in handy considering that some of them multiply your score.
The best part about Run Sackboy! Run! is that it is completely free-to-play. All you have to do is head over to your app store and download the endless runner.
