    Hi folks-

    In celebration of Rolando 2 rolling into the App Store on July 1, we've dropped the price of Dr. Awesome and WordFu to 99 cents.

    Question about Topple2 OS 3.0 requirement: Is there really something about it that can't work without 3.0 or is it just an added feature that requires 3.0 to run and that could be turned on/off via an options menu?

    I just hope they finish giving us the rest of the secret levels. They still have 6 left to give us. I really hope they don't leave those spots empty. That would be tacky

    Why are you taking Rolando 1 of?

    Why the hell is Rolando going to be pulled? You said you pulled topple to make people not get confused with the sequel, is this the same case??

    Isn't it better if both games are there? So that people who like the second buy the first?

    They're pulling it off just like Topple, to ensure people can only download the new version (#2) which in turn puts all the sales in that app, and drives it up the app store ranking.
    Anyone who thinks differently is naive. They're saving us from "confusion"? What are we, idiots who can't understand the difference between #1 and #2??? Give me a break! :rolleyes:

    Well I think that's quite bad. :(

    Origin8 left Sentinel 1 on the appstore and Sentinel 2 seems to be selling quite nicely.

    I think i may pick up WordFu. It looks to be a good word game.

    This was exactly my plan. I have yet to pick up Rolando 1, and figured I'd wait to see how Rolando 2 turns out before buying both and having an epic amount of content ahead of me.

    But this plan to remove the original is really confusing. The app store is virtual, so it doesn't make sense to "make room" for anything. Frankly, I own every other ngmoco game there is, but this behaviour is confusing enough that I don't think I can support them in the future, Rolando or otherwise.

    I feel much less secure buying a game that could be gone from the App Store any second, especially when no one else removes titles like that.

    Some people really can't differentiate between 1 and 2... and there isn't a "1" after the original of Rolando or Topple

    technically any app can be removed at any second. Stop tryin to worry about company marketing strategies and just buy games you like.

    In non-Rolando related news...WordFu 1.3 is now live. It improves stability and performance, and it fixes some misc. bugs.
