Adventures of Lolo (NES)
Wait, giant hand? I wonder if it's related to Master Hand from Smash Bros.
The enemy remains motionless. It just sits there, staring at me.
Also I noticed that the trunk kind of looks like the word 'UP' and now I can't help but see it on every tree. A screen full of UP UP UP UP.
There is no way I'm letting this game beat me on level one though, I'll figure this out. Anyone reading this who's played the game before and knows what to do, feel free to shout at the monitor what I'm doing wrong. It might help, you never know.
Let's try that again.
I fired one at the treasure chest (nothing) then I fired the other at the enemy and he turned into an egg!
And collecting the treasure made the enemies disappear giving me a clear path to the now open exit! Excellent.
It seems to be a mystery what these heart boxes will do until you pick them up.
Turns out I was just supposed to shoot him twice, to make his egg fly across the level. Well okay, now I know I can do that.
Especially when I can just continue from the same place when I run out of lives.
Well I'm screwed. Next game.
