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 second game released in the U.S. series and was not really a popular sequel to its predecessor as very few improvements were made to gameplay.
In Japan, the game was released as Adventures of Lolo because the "first game" was not released in Japan because it was viewed merely as a compilation of previous Eggerland games. The Japanese version contained different stages and a different level of difficulty.
For more information on how to play this game, see the Eggerland series article.
Adventures of Lolo 2 was released on the Wii Virtual Console on January 21, 2008.
Story (from the Adventures of Lolo 2 manual)Edit
"Our heroic pair are at it again! On their return from the Haunted Castle (successfully defeated in the original 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 - this little one comes with me!" And with that he grabbed Lala and spirited her away to his Castle in the clouds. But, fortunately, Lala was able to analyze each of the mazes as she was taken to 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."
The gameplay was virtually identical to the original game. Some of the monster graphics were 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 the King Egger at the end. This is the first game in which Lolo can actually fight against Egger himself. Also featured are 4 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. Like Adventures of Lolo, the game has passwords that are only 4 characters.
