Simon Oliver/Ngmoco has pushed out an update to their popular Rolando [App Store] game.

The 1.1 version update offers improvements to the physics and rendering engine but also notably adds 5 additional "secret" levels. Rolando is an iPhone original platform game that was first released in December. We reviewed the game at that time and found it to be a wonderfully polished production and amongst the best the App Store had to offer.

The first secret level is unlocked after you complete the first world of the main Rolando storyline, while subsequent levels are available as you solve the secret levels sequentially.

App Store Link: Rolando, $4.99

    @jc - it doesn't reset your progress.

    I had to replay because I had deleted my copy of rolando and lost my progress.

    Cool. Gives me a reason to play through the game again, seeing as I've restored since finishing it the first time :). I like the idea of adding levels; I had wondered how they could do it since the story was so complete as it was. Good on them.

    Always loved how you unlock parts of the menu screen while playing too!

    really liked the game when it came out. fun and all.
    deleted it about an hour ago.
    even with the update its not enough to keep me interested.
    the goals kept me busy for a while too but after that there was like no replay value.
    unless Rolando 2 comes out with some awesome thing to keep replay i doubt i will be getting it.

    Rolando was great but it became boring way too quick for me. I don't know if it is the fact that I'm not really into games anymore or if the game just doesn't have the depth that I want. Bottom line is that Rolando gets a little repetitive.

    This Update is awesome, but I deleted Rolando, too so I had to play it from the beginning.
    Hopefully there are some more Updates in the futur.

    Rolando is one of the best Game on the iPhone.

    Hopefully there's more King levels. I love those levels. So much in fact that if ngmoco ever decides to release another update, I hope it's nothing but King levels. Highlight of the entire game, IMHO.

    To each their own. . . I don't really like the King levels.

    This extra level update is a nice piece of added value. Haven't played Rolando since I finished everything on it a month or so ago. I'll probably play the new levels and then not play it again.

    That said, I certainly don't regret buying it. It provided many hours of fun!
