iPhone App: Rolando

5 stars = 5 stars


Rolando is a cute, side-scrolling adventure game where you manage a group of round, roly-poly characters with various abilities through a colorful yet dangerous fantasy world.

The Good

The Bad


Rolando is a damned excellent iPhone game. It’s better than the similarly priced EA games I’ve ponied up for, and so good that it could be the foundation for a franchise or an entire company. The best part: the developers really “get” the iPhone – its strengths and what it’s capable of – to create a very unique and inventive gaming experience. Definitely check it out – it’s worth the $9 and then some. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to save the royal family.

    Just got an iPhone – I bought this one! What an awesome game, seriously.

    Have you played the sequel at all? I'm probably going to buy it solely based on how good the first game is.

    Hey, no I haven't got the sequel yet. Because of your comment, downloading it now for an eventual review.

    Nice! Still working on the first one, so you'll probably get to it before me.
