    This is how games should be developed. I hate paying to be a beta tester. Kudos to handcircus, I can't wait for Rolando! :)

    Excited

    I for one am really excited about this game. It seems to be one of the few games that is really being designed with the iPhone in mind. My favorite games are the ones that don't try to use pretend analog controllers (think Pac-Mac) but instead find ways to use the iPhone controls naturally. For example, Galcon may not deliberately have been designed for the iPhone, but it's very natural to use.

    Anyway, back on topic. I have high hopes for Rolando and am waiting patiently.

    Totally looks like it could fall into the "killer-app" category. If Apple is going to be making a fuss about the iphone/pod being a great game platform, they need a lot more games with the inspiration of titles like this.

    Exactly. I don't mind waiting if what I am finally able to purchase is actually a finished product, rather than a bug-ridden, incomplete concept app.

    I question if many even have a concept.

    It feels like devs are using the app store gain capitol so they can develop their games further.

    Like they make a game, which functions just barely, to "test" interest and design. If they sell enough copies and see profit, THEN they start to really update their apps.

    And while I understand that, I don't appreciate it as a consumer.
