r2Ngmoco's Rolando 2 has seen its first price cut down from $9.99 to $5.99.

Rolando 2 received high marks in our own review as well as the TouchArcade community.

All in all, we are really impressed with Rolando 2 which does justice to one of the few classic iPhone originals. Like the original, the art, style and music come together in a wonderfully immersive package. And with the addition of Plus+, you'll find yourself working to perfect your scores on individual levels in order to challenge your friends.

Rolando 2 is expected to receive free level pack updates ahead of Rolando 3 which was also announced in March.

    This "franchise" is always controversial here at TA, but I'll take a little heat and add that if you are looking for a full-featured, and IMO epic iDevice adventure; Rolando 2 is a platform defining title that I'm still no in regret of paying 10 bucks for. Love it or hate it, Rolando 2 is absolutely worth $6 :)

    Well worth the money, even before the drop. I've only just this week completed all the achievements (got all the 3000 plus+ points). I've probably spent 15+ hours doing that!

    Oh and Arn, they said in the ngmoshow pt1 that they will have both free and paid DLC.

    Bought it the night before the drop, thinking "eh it's been long enough, they aren't dropping the price". I have no regrets.

    you say its a "epic iDevice adventure; Rolando 2 is a platform defining title"...well if you can get used to the controls, which i didn't care for, I bought the first one for 10 bucks, and never got passed the 3rd level...anyone wanna trade Rolando 1 for i dunno...star defense or something, meet me at the flagpole @ 3pm

    • GreyDawn

      Star Defense is an OK game, but honestly with only like 7 levels and about 2 hours of game play, it is WAY too brief to be considered a good game/experience.

    Interesting how these things work. I finished Rolando 1 and 2 without much trouble (now #2 on R1 plus+, mvon007), but I'm struggling even on 'Normal' difficulty on Star Defence!

    Exciting that they've dropped the price, grow that audience again. I bought Star Defence when it hit $NZ1.29; wouldn't have gone for it otherwise ... maybe one day R2 will get to that point for other people :).

      If you want a SD tip, you have to set your weaponry up in areas where they will be positioned so that they hit the baddies on two passes (like a loop). I.e. set a electricity up at the entrance to the loop, then it hits the enemies twice.
