Hacking good fun

We all know how much fun gamers are going to get out of making levels for LittleBigPlanet 2, but that’s not the only game that ‘s got a vibrant modding community: Super Mario Galaxy 2 now has a group of players hacking the game in order to create new levels. Called Super Mario Galaxy 2.5, the project has so far only created one level, but as you can see from the videos below it’s an absolute doozy.

The hackers have reworked the ‘Step to the Beat’ level, only making it about twice as hard (at least) and incorporating some of the game’s trickiest manoeuvres – including the knuckle-nashing Yoshi-jump. Check out about mid-way through the level, when even the hackers get stuck, and pray that Nintendo don’t come down on this like a ton of bricks.
