Sackboy: A Big Adventure

Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a running and jumping game. It's a spinoff of the LittleBigPlanet series and follows Sackboy and three friends as they explore, collect and battle their way through a fantasy world. It stands out for the simple exuberant running and jumping challenges you can take on with four players working together.

It offers a fully explorable three-dimensional world. As you progress you follow a story of the dastardly Vex kidnapping Sackboy’s friends. You set off on a whirlwind caper through snowy mountains, dense jungles, dank underwater realms and even dark space colonies.

It's a fun game to play with the family not only because of the four-player mode but also because of the Pixar-like story it tells. On PlayStation 5 it's fast loading and supports the new DualSense controllers' haptic feedback.

Insights to ensure your child's gaming experience remains safe and enjoyable

Internet Matters Recommends

Review difficulty level

Some children might feel frustrated with different game levels or obstacles. Talk to them about recognising when it's time to take a break and turn their attention somewhere else. Often, when they come back relaxed, they're more likely to find success.

Master skills together

Some platform games require a lot of skill and combination movements, which can be frustrating to master. For younger players, set time aside to help them learn and practise the skills.

Build resilience

Platform games can promote perseverance. Encourage children to "try, try again" until they succeed while taking regular breaks.

Skill level age

Suggested by Family Gaming Database


The simple controls and multiplayer nature of this game make it an ideal early platforming challenge. Older players can help youngsters progress, but they will still feel like they are participating meaningfully.

Content rating

Mild Violence

Rated PEGI 7 for non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context, violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures, and pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children. Violence is always directed at fantasy characters. Violence is cartoon-like in nature, as are reactions to it. For example, enemies disappear in puffs of smoke when defeated and the player’s character falls down and floats up like a ghost when defeated. The colourful visual style makes any violence less disturbing. The game also features some boss fights, most of which pit the player against huge monster-like creatures. These boss monsters can be somewhat frightening, most notably the game’s antagonist, Vex, a giant jester-like doll with huge glowing eyes. The design could scare young children.
