Olli & Lissa 3: The
Candlelight Adventure is a platform game by Codemasters.
The aim of the game is to collect parts of a car which
are scattered through the castle, so that our hero Olli
can assemble it in time to take Lissa on a picnic. The
graphics are monochrome but quite detailed in a style
similar to that of the Magic Knight series by
Mastertronic. Controlling Olli is quite awkward and
moving down stairs is a bit different to normal. The
castle is huge and very complicated to navigate, which
is done through doors and elevators which have a strange
way of connecting. It will take you a long time to know
your way around and discover where the items are that
you need to complete your quest. This makes the game
very difficult and takes too long to play in order to
The car is now working!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played it and saved my progress as I found the car
parts. It took a long time to master the castle layout.
("I've since created a crazy hack for this game that
gives you a whole host of features including a cheat to
jump straight to the ending. Download it from
HERE" - Vinny).
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once all parts of
the car have been assembled our hero winks and the game
is beaten. A final screen shows a letter from Lissa
thanking Olli for the romantic picnic and for being a
nice guy and a great mechanic.
Such a shame. I was hoping for more at the end of this
to view more endings.
