Europe VC Releases - 8th June - Adventures of Lolo
Posted by Darren Calvert
Europe didn't quite make it to the 100 game mark this week. Today's releases take the EU library to the 99th game so next week might be a biggie. Still it's not all bad this week! Many hardened retro gamers will be delighted to hear that Adventures of Lolo is finally out. Lolo is a great example of the old NES top down puzzler, these sort of games were a dime a dozen but Lolo stood out as one of the best. It is well worth a look and comes highly recommended.
Many gamers will already know Balloon Fight, it's Nintendo's cute version of Joust. It's already available to play as a sub-game on several games. It can be fun for a while, especially in 2 players but probably won't hold your attention for that long.
Finally this week we have Dead Moon on the TG-16. Yet another shoot-em-up for the system! This time it's a horizontally scrolling type, it is fun for a while but lacks the charm or replay value of heavy hitters like R-Type.
