Just in case you haven't yet heard, ngmoco has released Rolando 2 out into the App Store
for the premium price of $9.99. The game's subtitled Quest for the Golden Orchid
(in this one, you're rescuing a relic rather than a prince), and though it's not cheap by App Store standards, but on the other hand, it's as quality a game as you'll find on the iPhone. We were big fans of the first one
, and the second one ups the ante with a brand new 3D look (though still the same great 2D gameplay), and lots more types of Rolandos to roll and jump and fly and drive around the more than 45 new levels. It's fair to say that if you liked the first one, you'll love this one, and if you've never tried rolling a Rolando around, this is a perfect opportunity to start.
There, unfortunately, no lite version of the second game yet, but there is a version of the first one to try
, and there are lots of movies to watch over on ngmoco's site
, so you can probably get the idea from there. If you're interested in gaming on the iPhone at all, Rolando
's on the short list no matter what your tastes are.
