TouchArcade first reported on Rolando on July 1st of this year, even before the App Store had been launched. Rolando has since become one of the most anticipated apps coming to the App Store.

Some of this, of course, was due to our own enthusiasm for the title, but one shared by a large portion of our audience. I think the reason for the enthusiasm was apparent from the first trailer which we originally described as "a clever and promising title that has 'iPhone' written all over it."

With the release of Rolando [App Store] last night, the big question is: does it deliver on the hype? For many of the early adopters, the answer seems to be "yes".

Played the first few levels. So far I'm impressed. It's stylish and adorable and the three separate medals for each level makes me want to play it again and again. It oozes polish from every surface. I guess I still have to get used to the controls, but on a side note, the physics are great! - SydneyS

I’m having a great first experience with it. Above all, this game absolutely screams “polish,” from the interactive title screen onward. Concerns about comparisons to Dizzy Bee should be assuaged once gameplay videos start coming out. This is a wonderful interactive platformer with a neat story and wonderful, fitting graphics. - polyplay

As described, the level of polish, style and humor really establish a great feel for this game. The controls, while taking some getting used to, seem well suited for the iPhone.

The goal of the game is to save the Rolandos from the evil "shadow blocks". Each level requires you to navigate various obstacles to save as many Rolandos as you can while also picking up additional gems. Controls are both tilt and touch based. Tapping on a Rolando or highlighting a group of them allows you to control their movement. Additional obstacles/tools can also be found, including turning platforms, bombs, trampolines, and more.

At this early stage, it's impossible to say much about length of game or replayability (also mentioned by polyplay referenced above), but from a production standpoint, this is as good as it gets. We're still working our way through the levels and will return with a more complete view at a later date.

Here's an early gameplay video:

    Wow that whole page ad is annoying for Rolando. I've accidentally clicked it so many times from the side of the page. Didn't know what was causing it at first. As the sides are just a blue background halfway down the page, nothing like an ad. I was clicking there to select the window by accident. Auto scroll activates it to, which you need a blank area to do so the sides are the first choice. Then a SpyBot warning about a registry change, Browser menu extension, Value deleted, Open Client to monitor 1. came up during the chaos.

    As an iPhone developer, and probably like most iPhone devs, I don't care how many jailbroken phones there are out there. The jailbroken platform is so unpredictable (like Windows) that I'm never going to try and fix problems that affect a JB'ed phone only.

    The other problem is that the jailbroken phones are also where all the pirated apps reside (no incentive for me there).

    iTunes accounts using jailbroken phones should be banned from reviewing apps.

  • K

    I JB'd my iPhone to get video recording + wifi modem + MMS.

    After PAYING for Rolando, I am loving the game! Pure brilliance and fun :)

    Also, works PERFECTLY on my jailbroken phone...didn't need any restart.

    I think I'm halfway through the game (just past the Fire Canyon) and I'm convinced that even if after beating the game I never pick it up and play it again, it is certainly worth $10.

    There is enough variety and mayhem to provide at least a few hours' worth of solid gameplay here, and the levels get more and more innovative and complex as the game progresses.

    If apple provided the tools I need I wouldnt have to JB. Also, apple devs should worry about JB'ers. There are alot of us out there who will not buy the app because it does not work on the phone. 100% of all apps work on my phone but Rolando.

    Sitting in the train right now and played half through the game. And I have to say, it's one of the best gaming experience i've ever had and definetly the best and most unique game on this platform, Rolando is the Mario of the iPhone / Touch ...I'm just afraid, game will end too quickly, but I will buy all follow ups without a whimper :) I cannot say, how much I love playing this... And for me it's even way better than Loco Roco... perfect in every aspect, thanks for this... Now I have to enter world 3 :) See you later!

    Terry Wilson, there are very few people that have actually pirated games or indeed applications at all on the iPhone platform. It's a stupid risk that could easily land those trying it in a lot of trouble, and besides, most people are perfectly happy to pay the very reasonable software prices found on the app store. Besides, do you actually realize how technically involved the process of pirating an App Store app is? I would never steal from an App Store developer, especially considering that nearly all App Store apps that I have encountered have been very reasonably priced, and I find your comment very disheartening, that you would not bother to help a significant portion of the app store user base is sheer laziness, and your opinion that Jail Break users should not be able to review apps seems like nothing more than an attempt to sweep unacceptable coding under the rug. Very few App Store apps have trouble running on Jail Broken devices, so why can't developers like you at least make an effort not to shamelessly rip off customers in such a way. At the very least, a warning in the app description could save people from spending money on an app that simply isn't worth it to them.

    Actually if you look at some torrent sites there are tons of pirated iPhone games, which all requires a jailbroken iPhone to be able to install them - so if there are a lot of jailbroken phones it's safe to say that a good deal of them also use pirated material - not all, but my guess is a reasonable percentage.

    Though jailbreaking has been made easy by tools such as Pwnage, it is still not a mainstream phenomenon - and it's unsupported!

    I see no reason for developers to support non-standard configurations. One of the benefits of the iPhone platform is that developers have a very consistent system to develop for.

    If you think the iPhone is too limited - buy a Symbian, Android or WinMo phone - but good luck finding cool games like Rolando ;)

    If you JB, you're on your own !

    Yeah, sorry for going OT there, it just p****** me off when people complain about a game not working on their JB phone when it runs perfectly on the non-JB official configuration.

    Anyway, back to Rolando - I haven't plunked down the cash yet - trying to controll myself since I already bought both Brothers In Arms and Hero Of Sparta this month, but it looks like I'll just have to give in.

    It's so great that the game is actually living up to the hype, it is a big deal for the iPhone as a gaming platform to have a defining game like this seems to be.

    I can't wait to check it out.

    This is an extremely good game. I would be 110% hyped about it if it hadn't been so hyped up, as it is I'm probably 90% hyped. :)

    I don't mind the Rolando top bar ad, it looks good.

    Besides, if I ran a site like this and it was a hobby and I had another job and the site made a small profit from ads, and Ngmoco approached me for advertising a game as solid as Rolando, I'd do it because it makes the site more self sufficient, and it's a damn good game.

    If the authors of 'Pirate Master III' wanted to however, and still didn't provide a video and I had no idea if the game was good or not, then I wouldn't.

  • Quebec Rage

    Personally I really love the game. Personally I prefer it to Loco Rocco for 1 simple reason: The controls. I hated the way you had to trigger Left/Right on the PSP (haven’t tried the PS3 version). For me Rolando just set a new standard, not only on the iPhone but on all mobile games.

    As far as JB iPhone support is concerned, my point is very clear: NO SUPPORT for non-standard iPhones. I know that not all people who jailbreak their iPhone is to pirate games and apps but a LOT do it (go check on the torrents). The iPhone is a new platform and it gives a chance to unknowns programmers to make a name (and some money) for themselves. I am a developer and believe me, a game like Rolando takes forever to build, design, test, debug and even cost some money to promote so I would not want anyone to get my efforts for free.

    If you can buy a car, well, you can pay for the gas that you'll use. Same thing apply to all consoles. JB all you want but you will never, ever be able to run our 2 upcoming (Q1-2009) games on your JB-iPhone.

    Now flame me all you want but think about it before doing so...

    i need to hear more about the controls before i will even consider purchasing a game for $10 (not to sound like a broken record, but it's because i pissed away 10 bucks on SuperMonkey Ball which has TERRIBLE controls and won't make that same mistake again).

    the reviewer quoted in the blog said, "we'll just have to get used to the controls" which is not exactly comforting. at that price, the controls should be divine and thoughtful, not something i need to make an exercise in patience.

    so, what's the verdict on controls?

    as to JB phones, if you can't play within the rules, don't buy an iphone, and certainly don't whine about the side effects.

    As others have said, complaining the game doesn't run on your hacked phone is silly. The solution is simple, don't hack your phone, or don't buy the game. If enough of you don't buy the game, maybe the developer will think about solving your issue. I suspect not, but you never know.

    Also, isn't the a *big* conflict of interest reviewing a game that looks to be a big sponsor for the site.

    Good God, drop the jail break discussion already. Start a new thread if you're so concerned about it.

    About the controls, I've only had time to play through a few levels but they seem perfectly fine to me. This is the first game I got that feels like a full blown console game. It's fun and very polished. Too be honest it's probably worth $20 but with the current app store economy that would probably be suicide.

    For those bitching about full page ads, what's the issue? It doesn't affect your viewing experience (unlike pop-up ads) and there's revenue to be had with it. You think this site gets by on it's charm and good looks? Think again; TouchArcade is a great site, but someone needs to pay to keep the lights on and this month Rolondo is fitting the bill. Suck it up or move away from the Internets, because this is the way things are going.

    BTW, Rolondo looks awesome and I'll probably be picking it up in a few days.

    I just waited for this game (as a lover of Loco Roco) and today all I do is playing
    it again and again. And sorry for really liking this game ;)

    ...and strange....so ngmoco should have payed ALL iphone sites, which reviewed this game nearly the same way and all people who left a good impression in all the threads? Wow....then ngmoco would be poor again :)

    What about people really like this game and you don't? Too unrealistic?
    And do you know, that a website with lots of traffic costs quite a bit?

    No, later levels take much longer. I'm in the first of the last world right now.

    Neat game.

    I don't mind the Rolando-theme myself - websites have gotta make money too.

    Can't say the same for the full-page click though. That's like forcing sweets on children who've already some.

    Wouldn't be half so bad if it just opened a webpage. But oh no, these days you got to cause "Do you want to Launch iTunes?" crapola.

    Kitkat time.

    "The other problem is that the jailbroken phones are also where all the pirated apps reside (no incentive for me there)."

    That may be true for some, but not all. Jailbroken iphones can also run programs created by people who don't necessarily desire a paycheck for the games they make either. People who do it just for the thrill or who want to customize their iphone.

    I have a touch that's jailbroken and Rolando's on it. Guess what? I paid for it. The ONLY time I'll pirate an app is if there's no lite version to try first. If I like it I buy it, if not I delete it, usually within 10 minutes. But that's a pretty hasty assumption to just dismiss jailbroken users.

    Really like this opinion. Perhaps bodybuilding steroids site should help someone there.
