 +--------------------------+
 |                          |
 |  PART ONE: INTRODUCTION  |   Welcome to my Lolo FAQ.  Downloading this FAQ is an indication
 |                          |   that you're interested in playing Adventures of Lolo for the
 +--------------------------+   NES.  Or maybe you're playing it on an emulator, but emulation
                                is stealing and that's bad and shame on you.  But whatever.
 Either way, you're reading this FAQ, so you're probably stuck in a puzzle somewhere in the
 game and need my help solving it.  I'm happy to help out.  But if you're on an emulator, you
 are going to have a harder time using this FAQ, since you'll have to keep switching back and
 forth between your web browser and your emulator, whereas if you have an NES you can just
 read this while you play.  So buy the game!  It's a cool game, and it's only like $2.50 or
 whatever on eBay.

 Anyway, you've probably noticed that this game's abbreviation is AOL.  Don't worry, it's not
 lame at all.  If you've never played before, Adventures of Lolo is a very simplistic yet
 highly addicting puzzle game for the NES that involves a little round blue dude pushing
 blocks around so he can save his girlfriend, Princess Lala, from an evil demon king.  You
 can tell Lolo and Lala apart because Lolo is blue and Lala is pink.  That's about as gender
 specific as this game gets.

 A quick disclaimer, because I guess those things are necessary in FAQs: Adventures of Lolo,
 and all the goodies therein, are copyright or trademark or whatever to Hal.  The game is
 like fifteen years old, but whatever.  I'm not affiliated with them in any way, except that
 I like their game.  I'm also not affiliated with Nintendo, either.  However, I did write this
 FAQ and I don't want you stealing it from me.  You can go ahead and ask me for it if you want,
 but I'll probably say no, so you should save the time and not ask.

                   #                      This is sort of what an NES controller looks like,
                   #                      except not nearly as ugly.  You might have one of
    ________       #       ________       the old ones that are all rectangular and boxy,
   /        \______#______/        \      but I like the newer one better because it's more
  /    _                         A  \     comfortable and your hands don't cramp up when you
 |   _|^|_                  B    _   |    use it.  And since Lolo is a pretty long game if you
 |  |<   >|     />   />     _   {_}  |    play it without a FAQ, comfort is a good part of your
 |    |V|      </   </     {_}       |    strategy.
 |          SELECT START             |
  \          _____________          /     The controls in Lolo are very simple.  The D-pad
   \________/             \________/      (that's the cross-shaped thing on the left, there)
                                          makes Lolo walk in four directions.  The A and B
 buttons (over here on the right) are Lolo's action buttons; A makes him fire a shot (if he has
 one), and B lets him use a PW ability (if he has one).  In the middle are Start and Select.
 Start doesn't do much of anything except start the game, and Select is your panic button.
 Press it and Lolo will commit suicide, letting you restart the level you're on.  Only use this
 if absolutely necessary!

 Each Lolo level is made up of 121 tiles; 11 tiles wide and 11 tiles deep.  Objects of all
 sorts, including Lolo, are always made up of exactly one tile.  Lolo can move around in
 half-tile increments, though, so he can move BETWEEN tiles if he wants.  There are ten floors
 in the Great Devil's castle, and five rooms on each floor, so there are fifty puzzles total.
 I've named all the rooms, just for fun, but really they don't have names.

 The goal of every room in Lolo is to make him walk around and collect all the hearts in a
 level, which will open a treasure box.  Then you have to take the jewel from inside the
 treasure box, which will solve the room and unlock the door (or, on the last room of every
 floor, make a staircase appear).  Then go through the door (or climb the stairs) to move
 on to the next room.  To stop him are a bunch of bad guys and obstacles that he must
 overcome.

 Sometimes picking up a heart will grant Lolo a magic shot.  Shooting a bad guy with a shot
 will cause the bad guy to turn into an egg.  Lolo can push these around and even ride them
 like rafts.  If Lolo has two magic shots, he can use the first to turn the monster into an
 egg, then use the second to blow the egg off the screen, effectively destroying the monster.
 However, monsters will regenerate after a while.  Also, sometimes picking up a heart will
 give Lolo a PW ability, which lets him interact with his level in some way.  Between shots
 and PW abilities, Lolo has everything he needs to rescue the princess from the Great Devil.

 In most rooms Lolo will encounter green blocks, which he can push around to either clear
 paths or act as shields or whatever.  These blocks are the most important thing needed to
 solve a lot of puzzles, too.

 Every single room has a four-letter password you can use to jump right to that room.  I give
 these passwords out throughout the FAQ, so if you're stuck on a puzzle you can't solve and
 don't want to follow my directions, just use the password for the next level and skip it.

    ABCDEFGHIJK       This is what a typical Lolo room looks like.  Actually, this is the first
   +------=----+      room in the game.  You won't see the A-K or 0-X on the screen, though,

 9 |@**@o   ** |[]
 X |@@@@@@     |      The <> thing below that is a picture of a magic shot.  This shows how
   +-----------+      many magic shots Lolo has left.  He always starts with zero, and gains
                      more as he collects certain hearts.  Not all levels have magic shots,
 though, but some levels give him more than he needs.  Below that are three boxes (the []
 things) labeled PW.  These are special abilities that Lolo gets.  I think PW is supposed to
 stand for POWER, or something, but I don't really know.  It doesn't matter.  There are
 three kinds of PW abilities: PW-Hammer (which breaks rocks), PW-Arrow (which changes the
 direction of an arrow tile), and PW-Bridge (which builds a bridge over one tile of water).

 Throughout the FAQ I'll reference certain tiles by coordinates, letter first.  So (A,3) would
 be the ! symbol in the room above.  (A,0) is the topleft corner, (K,0) is the topright,
 (A,X) is the bottomleft, and (K,X) is the bottomright.  Always.  This way I can give you
 precise directions and you always know right where I'm talking about.  Since ASCII characters
 are taller than they are wide, it looks like the rooms are stretched a bit; on the screen
 though they're perfectly square.  Don't worry, they'll make more sense if you reference to
 the maps as you play the game.

 I think that's all you need to know about this FAQ.  Now that you know how to play, let's take
 a look at all the cool stuff in the game.

{==============================================================================================}

 +-----------------+
 |                 |
 |  PART TWO: KEY  |   There are lots of different types of blocks, obstacles, goodies, and
 |                 |   enemies Lolo can interact with or get killed by in the game.  And for
 +-----------------+   the sake of this FAQ, they all have a different symbol for use in the
                       maps in Part Three.  So try and familiarize yourself with what's here,
 so you don't have to constantly jump back and forth when you try to follow my directions
 later.  I made everything as simple as I possibly could, so I hope they're all easy to follow.

 [   ] Tile - An empty space is just a normal, walkable tile.  Here, anything goes.

 [ / ] Grass - Lolo can walk on grass, but monsters cannot.  Otherwise it is a normal tile.

 [ $ ] Sand - Lolo walks twice as slow through sand as through normal tiles, but monsters move
       through it at regular speed.

 [ @ ] Rock - These cannot be walked through or shot through.  However, they can be destroyed
       with PW-Hammer.

 [ * ] Tree - Monsters can shoot through these, but Lolo cannot.  Neither monsters nor Lolo
       can walk through them.

 [ # ] Block - Lolo can push these around, but not pull them.  They cannot be walked or shot
       through.

 [ ^ ][ < ] Arrows - Lolo can walk across arrows, but not against the direction the arrowhead
 [ > ][ v ] points.  He can change the direction of arrows with PW-Arrow.  Monsters can walk
       across arrows as if they were normal tiles.

 [ : ] Water - Lolo cannot walk across water, but he can shoot through it and so can monsters.
       Lolo can cross water by pushing an egg into the current or by creating a bridge over it
       using PW-Bridge.  On floors 9 and 10 the water changes to lava, but behaves exactly
       the same way.

 [ % ] Bridge - These are simply normal tiles.  Lolo can create bridges over water using
       PW-Bridge.

 [ h ] Heart - Lolo must collect all of the hearts before the treasure box will open.
       Collecting hearts will sometimes give Lolo shots or PW.  Collecting all the hearts
       on a level will also trigger certain enemies.

 [ o ] Treasure Box - After collecting all the hearts, Lolo must open this treasure box in
       order to escape the room.

 [ - ][ | ] Walls - These are the walls to the room.  Lolo cannot interact with them in any way,
 [ + ]      shape, or form, and neither can monsters.

 [ = ] Door - The door opens up after Lolo opens the treasure box, and always appears in one
       of the top walls.

 [ ! ] Lolo - This is where Lolo starts in the room.

 [ s ] Snake - Monsters that don't do much.  They're basically rocks that can be turned into
       an egg and pushed or floated upon.

 [ e ] Sleeper - As soon as Lolo moves, the sleepers in the room will start to chase him.  If
       they touch him, they'll fall asleep and won't ever wake up.  This can trap Lolo if he
       isn't careful.

 [ u ][ d ] Dragons - Pink dragons that face one of the four directions (up, down, left, or
 [ l ][ r ] right).  After all the hearts have been collected, they wake up and will shoot
            fireballs at Lolo if he crosses their path.

 [ k ] Skulls - Skulls are harmless until you grab the last heart, at which point they'll
       chase Lolo down to devour him.

 [ g ] Golem - These square grey golems will follow Lolo around and stop if they get close to
       him.  They can push him around, too, and love blocking him into corners where he can't
       escape.

 [ a ] Armadillos - Armadillos are nasty creatures that act very much the same way as skulls,
       but they run around the entire level without having to be triggered.

 [ m ] Medusae - Medusae are nasty critters that petrify Lolo with their evil gaze.  If Lolo
       steps in their line of sight, he gets blasted.  They can't shoot through rocks, blocks,
       hearts, or other monsters though.

 [ ~ ][ { ] Don Medusae - The nastiest monsters in the whole game.  They work just like regular
       medusae, except they move back and forth.  The ~ ones move horizontally, and the { ones
       move vertically.

 And now you know what everything is and what everything does.  The next part of the FAQ is
 pretty long, but details how to solve all fifty rooms.  I suggest trying to solve each room
 on your own first, and if you can't figure it out after a while to read the FAQ.

{==============================================================================================}

 +---------------------------+
 |                           |
 |  PART THREE: WALKTHROUGH  |   Below are maps and detailed walkthroughs to every single room
 |                           |   in the whole game.  I try to make my instructions as simple
 +---------------------------+   to follow as possible by using coordinates and symbols and
                                 easy-to-follow instructions.  To jump right to a room that's
 giving you trouble, try searching the document (Ctrl + F on most browsers) for the room
 number that you need.  Room numbers are in the format of floor.room, so floor 6 room 4
 would be 6.4.  That should jump you straight down to where you need to be.  I gave all the
 rooms cute names, just for fun, but they all use the same graphics and have the same music.
 The music is cool and catchy though.  You'll find the password for each room right next to
 the room's name.  Passwords are always four letters.  On levels where you can get a PW, you
 can see which PW you get, and how many hearts you need to get it, right next to the password.
 Anyway, on with the walkthrough!

 three times as big as this one, and you can even play as Lala.  They're all pretty much the
 same game, so if you liked this one give the others a shot!  I don't have FAQs for the other
 two, however.

 If you want to contact me and thank me for writing this FAQ, or to lavish praise on me, or
 something of that nature, feel free to drop me a line at brickroad@mailcircuit.com.  I am not
 accepting any contributions for this FAQ.  It's 100% complete, and does not require updating.
 I don't care if you have alternate solutions to any of the levels; the ones I have are
 complete and valid, and are good enough to get you through the game.  So please don't
 e-mail me telling me I left anything out, because I didn't.

 I hope you found this FAQ helpful and informative, and I hope you enjoyed this classic
 piece of block-pushing fun.
