'Lollipops' is a platformer and it is the 33rd game on 'Action 52'. Instead of a sword or a gun, the main character uses a lollipop to defeat his enemies.
There are not so many platformers on 'Action 52' like 'Lollipops' as most of them are shooter games so it is already something of an anomaly. Moreover, the unusual gameplay and candy-themed design of 'Lollipops' make this game one of the weirdest in the entire compilation.
First of all, in this game the protagonist wields a lollipop rather than a sword or a gun (as in a regular platformer). Another odd thing is that the enemies in this game are pieces of candy, like gumballs and bonbons.
The controls are as bad as the other games in 'Action 52'. For example, one odd gameplay decision in this game is that to climb a ladder you need to jump rather than to press 'up' on the D-pad and the regular controls of an NES game are inverted (you jump with 'B' rather than the other way round).
- While on the compilation's selection screen this game is called 'Lollipops', on the game's menu screen it is called 'Lollipop'.
- There is another game with a similar title called 'Lollipop Chainsaw', released in 2012 by Warner Bros. Interactive. However, despite the similar titles, they are completely unrelated to each other in both concept and design.
