The Cosmos Beta Planet


The Cosmos is a world in LittleBigPlanet 2, created by Herbert Higginbotham. It is based mainly on an arcade in the 1980's.

The primary goal of this world is to destroy the Negativitron, the secondary goal is to free Avalon.

Strategy guide description

Space. The Final Frontier. With the help of the newly-disinfected but still half-mad Dr. Herbert Higginbotham, Huge Spaceship can once again take flight. Into the murky darkness of space, the Alliance races towards its final confrontation with the Negativitron.

Only united can the Creator Curators of the Alliance hope to stand a chance against the ravenous beast. With your sack person leading the charge and a sackbot army at its backlegs, it's time to stop running and take the fight to the Negativitron itself. Literally.
