  • Released as アドベンチャーズオブロロ 2 in Japan, pronounced The Adventures of Lolo 2.
  • The Western Adventures of Lolo 3 has completely different puzzles than this game (as seen by comparing the screenshots).
  • Contains 110 stages (14 levels with 5 rooms each, 3 levels with 10 rooms each, and several boss battles).
  • This game marks the debut of the monster named Moby.

Its whopping 110 stages made it over twice as long as the previous two titles on the NES and this game actually seemed like a bit more of an adventure. Lolo and Lala played this game together (players had the ability to switch between the two characters) and they were presented with an explorable overworld with locations that contained the labyrinths that they had to conquer in order to save their people. The game was, therefore, not linear like previous titles, but some places could not be visited until others were conquered.

For example, the Tower (Level 3) requires a Key to open it (which is obtained at the completion of one of the caves: Level 2), and at the top of the tower Lolo/Lala has to create a rainbow bridge with the Rainbow Egg which is found in another cave: Level 1. Level 1 and 2 can be visited out of order, but they must be completed before unlocking Level 3, and you must have the Egg before you can finish the Tower.

This game is generally considered to be the most interesting, challenging, and fun of Lolo and Lala's excursions on the 8-bit platform(s).


Like the Adventures of Lolo (Japan) and Adventures of Lolo 2 (Western) before it, this game has just a superficial similarity with Adventures of Lolo 3 (Western): they share the same graphics, music, and cutscenes, but all the puzzle rooms are different.

It is the general consensus of those that have played both versions that the Japanese version is the more difficult version of the game. The new monster, Moby, appears in Level 9 in the Japanese version of the game, whereas it does not make its appearance until Level 11 in the NA/EU version. The game presents for the first time the idea of breakable bridges (bridges you can only cross twice because they crack and then shatter), but these are introduced much earlier on in the Japanese than in the NA/EU version.


Title screen.

Lolo, Lala and their friends have lived peacefully for many years, ever since the defeat of the Great Devil (in The Adventures of Lolo 2). But suddenly his son and heir, the new King of Eggerland, launched a hollow capsule filled with a strange potion that turns the inhabitants of Lolo and Lala's tiny kingdom to stone. Only Lolo and Lala, basking in the sun at the edge of the lake between the two kingdoms, were spared this horrible fate. Brave in the face of adversity, our hero and heroine set out together to defeat the evil King and cast off his spell. Only you can help our brave pair now...
