23: Adventures of Lolo

Genre: Puzzle

Developer: HAL
Publisher: HAL
Year: 1989

Basic Idea: Make the Peruvian temple in Raiders of the Lost Ark seem like a playground.

Review:  I more or less described how this game works in my review of its sequels.  It’s a near-perfect puzzle game.  Sadly, they couldn’t help themselves but create one level late in the game that requires dexterity and perfect play control to beat.  I was able to do it, but only after twenty to thirty attempts.  Why it was dumped in a game that required virtually no hand-eye coordination at all is puzzling.  Still, Adventures of Lolo is as about as sure-fire you can get for puzzle lovers.
