|Adventures of Lolo 2|
Adventures of Lolo 2, known as Adventures of Lolo[a] in Japan, is a puzzle video game released in 1990 by HAL Laboratory for the NES/Family Computer. It is the sixth installment of the Japanese Eggerland video game series; it was the fourth game released in European countries and the second one released in the United States and Canada. While the North American and European release shares cut-scenes and graphics with the Japanese release, the bulk of levels are not shared between the two.
Adventures of Lolo 2 was released on the Wii's Virtual Console in Japan on June 5, 2007 and in 2008 for North America on January 21, and in PAL regions on February 1. Adventures of Lolo 2 was later released in Japan on the 3DS Virtual Console on April 9, 2014, on the Wii U's Virtual Console on September 3 the same year and via Nintendo Switch Online on December 12, 2018.
A third game, Adventures of Lolo 3, was released for the NES in 1991.
Gameplay is virtually identical to the previous Adventures of Lolo and Eggerland: Sōzō e no Tabidachi. Some of the monster graphics were drawn differently, mainly Gol, Rocky, Skull, Medusa, and Don Medusa. Other differences include new puzzles and greater difficulty, with some puzzles taken from the older games in the Eggerland series.
The game features a total of 50 different puzzle rooms; the player faces King Egger at the end. Also featured are four hidden Pro puzzle rooms, which are available for players who want to try very challenging rooms.
The Japanese version has mostly different and more difficult levels compared to the North American and European release.
