Summary

Simply a really fun puzzle game

The Good

This is not your average rescue-the-princess game (a genre which usually involves an inordinate amount of violence). This game makes you think. The Adventures of Lolo sets up a series of unique obstacles and enemies (like a harmless yet narcoleptic hopping green creature that falls asleep as soon as it comes in contact with you, and the gorgon/Medusa creature that is just the meanest thing ever) that you must either avoid or figure out how to manipulate to your advantage.

With 50 levels, effectively equating to 50 different puzzles, this game does not get boring easily.

The Bad

The only negative thing that I could possibly say about this game is that it *only* had 50 puzzles.

The Bottom Line

This little blue egg dude has to rescue his girlfriend (a little pink egg dudette) by thinking his way through 50 different rooms. The rooms are actually just sinister logic puzzles in disguise. Get thinking!
