This was a terrific review, Joe, one of my favorite retro reviews that you've written. There was a place in the middle where you repeated the bit about the game crushing you with its difficulty (when you had already made that point) that felt a bit repetitive, but otherwise I probably wouldn't change a thing. You did a good job covering the basics for those who are unfamiliar (like me) and you made the game sound intriguing but imperfect. It strikes me as something a lot like Kickle Cubicle, which I actually have played. In any event, I'm glad that you keep writing such competent reviews for the old NES classics. It tempts me to do more of that sort of thing myself.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Thanks, Jason!

I like the Lolo games more than Kickle Cubicle. It's been years since I've played that one, and I have wanted to revisit and re-review it. I don't think my rating is going to be quite as high as it was before (I think I gave it a 7/10 at GF). It's not a game that aged terribly well.
