Adventures of Lolo is a puzzle game released in 1990 by HAL Corporation for the NES/Famicom. It is part of the Japanese Eggerland video game series. It was the fifth original game released in the series, but it was released in Japan only. It re-uses the same graphics and music from the US-made compilation Adventures of Lolo, but all the puzzles are new.
The gameplay is virtually identical to the previous games. Some of the monster graphics are differently drawn, mainly Gol, Rocky, Skull, Medusa and Don Medusa. Other differences include greater difficulty than Adventures of Lolo.
The game features a total of 50 different puzzle rooms, and an actual fight with King Egger at the end. This is the first game in which Lolo can actually fight against Egger himself. Also featured are four hidden Pro puzzle rooms, which are available for players who want to try very challenging rooms.
The last five rooms take place in the castle in the sky, which actually has a different tileset than the regular tower. This is the first game to feature different tilesets.
- Released in Japan only.
- Contains 54 rooms: 9 floors with 5 rooms each in the Tower, 1 castle with 5 rooms (i.e. a 10th floor), and 4 Pro Rooms available by entering the passwords (PROA, PROB, PROC and PROD).
Titles disambiguation: The American game Adventures of Lolo 2 contains mostly different rooms and some different challenges than the this Japanese title. As such, many fans consider the Japanese version to be quite a bit more difficult than the Western version. They are actually two different games:
- Adventures of Lolo (Japan) includes new stages only;
- Adventures of Lolo 2 (by Hal America) is a compilation of stages from three Japan-only games.
Our heroic pair are at it again! On their return from the Haunted Castle (successfully defeated in the previous Adventures of Lolo) our Hero and Heroine were confronted by the real power of the land: the King of Eggerland himself. Swooping down on our victorious couple, the King thundered "The Labyrinth was only a preliminary test: the real battle starts now! If you can make it through my Tower and my Castle, I will set your people free. But just to make sure there are no tricks, the little one comes with me!" And with that, he grabbed little Lala and spirited her away to his Castle in the clouds. Fortunately, Lala was able to analyze each of the mazes as she was taken through the Tower, and left clues in the Jewel Boxes in each room. each Jewel that Lolo collects contains a bit of information that will help him in the next room. With your help, they will work together to free their people from the clutches of the King.
