Gameday: Rolando – save the day with your iPhone skills

Related posts:


The only thing gamers can complain about these days is the mere 24 hours that are in a day… There are so many new games coming out, exploring new ways of interaction, that you just can’t keep up. One of the more interesting games for the iPhone and iPod is Rolando. Here you play a platform game while using your skills wilt tilting, tapping and multi-touch controls.

In Rolando you control a whole bunch of creatures who live in Rolandoland. This country is in peril and you have to help them save the day. The problem is that their king has fallen asleep and can’t assist. He has to be brought to a certain place. This can be done by manipulating the environment by yourself or sending the Rolandos on their way, pushing the king forward.

The graphics are very cute and appealing. But the gameplay isn’t as easy as the graphics might suggest. The first few levels can be handled with slight skills, but from there on you have to be a master of your iPhone. ngmoco:) created a superb game well worth it’s $10.
