A bit short of the readies? Low on the folding stuff? Totally borassic? Then pop down the Bargain Basement with Marcus Berkmann, and see what goes "Cheep!" (Eh? Ed).

Back to the Cartoon Timers, and another spank game for the more youthful player. O&L 3 is, amazingly enough, the sequel to O&L 1 and O&L 2, both of which were released so long ago I'm amazed anyone can remember them. I'm not even sure I can, although I do remember the original Olli and Lissa sitting pretty on the top of the charts for the best part of six months after YS had said it was a giant pile of vom. Shows how much notice people take of us, eh? O&L 3 though, isn't bad at all, an odd little platformer that takes the still-badly-misspelt Olli through the usual network of screens, trying to find all the parts of his disassembled car. Poor old Ol. It's a gigantic excuse, of course, for loads of very colourful graphics, a house so large even the Ed would feel at home in it, and a jolly little romp that, unlike Wizard Willy for instance, may well test the patience of older players. Control is, well, different, and so not especially user-friendly, and even the best-tempered players will bridle when, after the inevitable failure, your only reward is a rather snotty letter from Lissa. There's one relationship that's clearly on the rocks... Not bad, then, but nice to look at than to play.
