Lolo 3 plays like the last two, as expected, but there are a couple new changes. For starters, you don’t simply progress from floor to floor. The game is set on a world map and each “dungeon” takes place in different environments, like a tree or a tower or a mountain. You can play as Lolo’s girlfriend, Lala (living in sin, are we Lolo?)… which is essentially playing a pink Lolo. And there’s a new enemy, a whale named Moby that can suck you towards him. The difficulty curve is also a little bit easier this time around than Lolo 2, which is a relief. With the initially less demanding difficulty, however, there are more levels to complete, so the game does eventually get butt-crunk challenging on one’s noggin.
Entertainment Weekly (Jul 26, 1991)
The slogan for the Adventures of Lolo series should be ''The family that plays together stays together in the house for six months until the neighbors have to call the police to get them out.'' As in previous games in this series, the challenge is to navigate Lolo (or, for the first time, his mate, Lala) through a sequence of rooms filled with pesky, strategically placed enemies and movable blocks. Still, though the game has action-adventure elements, the focus is on problem solving — it can take days to figure out how to clear a single room.
Most importantly, the amount of levels here is more than double previous iterations (110), making this a very complete game with loads of depth and incredibly tricky puzzles in the later stages.This is a clever and imaginative game, the likes of which has not been seen since.
Power Unlimited (Nov, 1993)
Adventures of Lolo 3 is een van de laatste echt goede games die voor de NES zijn verschenen. Geen ingewikkelde rommel, maar gewoon een stel ingenieuze puzzels waar je hersenen van gaan kraken. Ontzettend leuk, maar wel af en toe frustrerend.
Nintendo Power Magazine (May, 1991)
Hal America's third adventure featuring Lolo and Lala is the biggest and best yet, with 17 levels and 100 mind-boggling rooms. It has completely new underwater stages and now you can be either Lolo or Lala.
Gillar man pusselspel utan stress så är Lolo 3 i det närmaste idealiskt. Bjud gärna in grannen, så har du någon att diskutera spelet med. Då blir det nämligen ännu roligare.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (Jun, 1991)
Lolo 3 is pretty good for the 3rd in the series. Puzzle games aren't my thing, but this one is very involving and fun to play. It's kind of like Boxxle, but the puzzles have more variety. The only drawback is that once you beat all the levels you don't want to play it anymore.
Game Freaks 365 (2008)
So, overall, Adventures of Lolo 3 is actually quite a good game, the programmers just went a little too far with it. 100 levels? It may not seem like much, but considering that some of the later ones may take up to an hour or two to complete alone if you're not cheating, you're not going to be having fun after a short while, trust me. Still, I'd say it's worth a look for most NES fans, just have a password sheet ready so that when you get tired of it you can just say screw it like I did and jump ahead to the end.
