Back in 2010, The Mojon Twins released a cute little platform game called Lala Prologue on their long favored 8-bit computers, the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC. Now, the twins have worked their magic, renamed the game slightly to Lala The Magical, and converted it to the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The game follows the adventures of Lala, a young fledgling witch, who is currently learning magic from her teacher. However, when the teacher goes off traveling for a few days, Lala takes this opportunity to seek out the dangerous Power Gems that are said to be hidden in the Sky Palace.
This is classic Mojon Twins territory: platform adventure. Here, the player controls Lala through various levels full of enemies, spikes, and lava. Initially, Lala will have to avoid any enemy she comes across, but can soon find her teacher’s wand, which can be used to create platforms under her feet as well as frighten off any enemy. However, the bridge will only last a couple of seconds and Lala can only perform this magic one at a time, so careful use of the wand magic is required.
While the game bears all the hallmarks of a Mojon Twins’ production, David Sánchez also helped out with the music and sound effects. The combination of their efforts makes for a fine looking platform game, which is perfectly suited to the NES. Fans of either the Mojon Twins or the NES should definitely check out the early preview video from the Twins themselves, which is provided below.
