Adventures of Lolo 3 (NES review)

Developer: HAL Laboratory
Publisher: HAL Laboratory
Released: 1991

Adventures of Lolo 3 is a puzzle game and the follow-up to the 1990 NES sequel.

+ Plenty of fiendishly clever puzzles on offer, and the new unlimited lives feature means that trial-and-error isn't as punishing.

+ Unlike the previous games, this one is non-linear, so you can skip ahead to other worlds while keeping your stage progress.

+ The open world allows you to freely roam around the map, and there's now a huge 100 puzzle levels on offer.

+ Treasure rooms at the end of each world are a simple, yet significant reward that gives you incentive to keep progressing.

- The actual stages feel more like DLC and don't add anything significant to differentiate themselves from other Lolo games.

- Difficulty curve is tougher than the first two games, so this version probably isn't an ideal starting point for newcomers.

- Map screen allows you to switch between two characters, but there's no discernible differences between them.
