Adventures of Lolo was developed by Hal Laboratory and was released in 1989 by Hal America Inc. Adventures of Lolo is a puzzle game where you try to save Princess Lala from King Egger, who is this game's bad guy. The game consists of ten floors with five levels per floor, making for a total of 50 levels. In each level, you have to collect a certain amount of hearts to open up a chest that contains a pearl (I think) that will allow you to move on to the next level. While doing this, you have to avoid a wide variety of different traps and enemies.
As far as the presentation goes, it's alright. The graphics are very simplistic but for a game like this, that's okay. The music is also simplistic but is still very catchy. I should also mention that I played this game on a Retron3, which is a system that can play NES, SNES, and Genesis/Mega Drive games. The problem with the Retron3 is that when you play NES games on it, the sound is a little off. Basically, what the Retron3 does is change the duty widths of all of the notes to 12.5%. These effects show up as a V with a number from 0 to 3 next to it in FamiTracker. So, when a note has a V02 next to it, the Retron3 automatically changes it to a V00. It's not a very big problem, but I thought I should just mention it anyway. I'm still trying to get a regular NES. So, I'll just have to use a Retron3 for now.
Let's talk about the difficulty. Oh my Cory, the difficulty! Some of these levels can be really easy, while some of the levels can be so hard that they will legitimately make you angry like I was. I mean, the game isn't very long. You could beat the game in less than an hour. But, the only way you could do that is if you were really good at figuring out the puzzles. While the game is very simplistic and at times insanely hard, the game was still very fun and I actually felt good after solving each puzzle. This game is hard, but it's that kind of hard that makes you still want to play the game even after several deaths. Overall, I would give this game an 8/10.
UPDATE: Yesterday, I got an actual NES from my birthday party. So, I will no longer have that sound issue anymore. I can also play unlicensed games now.
