Summary

Lolo 3 manages to top the first 2 games

The Good

If a game series insists on relying on the same formula game after game, it generally starts to wear pretty thin by the third installment (think Megaman series). However, The Adventures of Lolo 3 managed to beat that trend. How? It managed to have 100 room-puzzles to solve rather than 50 which each of the previous games featured. Plus, each room-puzzle is a brand-new experience in itself, as opposed to games that stick to a repetitive action formula.

This is also an excellent game for players new to the series. Lolo's grandfather makes an appearance to carefully explain the gameplay basics.

The Bad

My biggest gripe with this game is that I could never finish it. There are certain room-puzzles in this game that are notoriously difficult.

The Bottom Line

The Adventures of Lolo 3 relies on the same formula as the first 2 games. Oddly, that does not diminish the appeal, entertainment value, or the challenge of room after room of logic puzzles.
