Adventures of Lolo 2 is a puzzle game released in 1990 by HAL Corporation for the NES/Famicom. It is based on the Japanese Eggerland video game series. It was the sixth game released in the series: the fifth one released in Japan, the fourth one released in Europe, the second one released in the North America. In western countries it was not really a popular sequel to Adventures of Lolo, as very few improvements were made to gameplay.
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 new puzzles and greater difficulty than Adventures of Lolo. Some of the puzzles are even taken from the older games in the Eggerland series.
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.
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.
- Originally released in Japan as アドベンチャーズオブロロ, pronounced The Adventures of Lolo.
- Contains 54 rooms: 9 Floors with 5 Rooms each in the Tower, 5 Floors of 1 Room each in the Castle, and 4 Pro Rooms available by entering the passwords (PROA, PROB, PROC and PROD).
Difficulty: The Japanese version of the game, The Adventures of Lolo, contains some different rooms and some different challenges than the Western version, The Adventures of Lolo 2. As such, many fans consider the Japanese version to be quite a bit more difficult than the Western version. This is demonstrated by the two screenshots of the first room from the Western version and the Japanese version. The Western version is very straightforward whereas the Japanese version requires a bit more thought, especially for the opening room.
