LittleBigPlanet user recreates Plants vs Zombies, Popcap probably mad

We’ve seen many crazy and downright wonderful creations from the LittleBigPlanet community over the years, from roller coasters to a thousand different remakes of Super Mario World 1-1. But have we ever gotten THIS close to a full recreation of an existing game? LittleBigPlanet user ‘Foggles’ has worked his magic to create Plants vs Zombots, a game where the user must place down different plants which fight off incoming enemies, serve as barricades and regenerate Sun spots which are essential for buying more plants. Sound familiar? You bet it does! It’ll sound even more familiar when you hear the in-game music, completely remade in LittleBigPlanet using the games Sequencer tool. Hit the jump for the video!
Plants vs Zombots currently only features 3 types of plants, as well as 2 different types of zombies (if you don’t count the flag bearer) but this just goes to show how the community of LBP has some really strong talent and we can’t wait to see what’s next to come from Sackboy and friends.
This is what I love about games like LBP and Minecraft. They're not so much "LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO! WE CAN RECREATE THE BATTLE OF NORMANDY OR A FANCY SPACESHIP!" It's more "We've given you the tools, show us what you can do." And it's wonderful.
or just lazy?
Those lazy developers, all they did was spend years programming the tools for us to use
