HAL Laboratory‘s Adventures of Lolo 3 is a fantastic, cute and extremely playable puzzle game, first released for the Nintendo Famicom in Japan in 1991 (actually December 26th 1990, but we’ll say 1991).
You can play as either Lolo or Lala, and the game is a tile-based tactical puzzle game, with rules that decide where you can go and what you can do in each of the individual 100 or so levels or “rooms”.
In most rooms: if you make the wrong move, the puzzle cannot be completed, so the game generously offers a ‘quit and restart level’ by pressing Select.
This sequel distils down all the good aspects of the first two games and results in one outstanding title. Arguably one of the greatest NES games of all time.
