I honestly have never played Rolando, I will one day.

Castle of Magic is a fun platformer, the touch dpad can be a bit iffy sometimes and framerates can stutter a little bit now and again but it's a solid game.

I think EVERYONE is waiting for KillTest :P

I have not played Castle of Magic yet, but the D-pad looks awkward. Also, if the youtube video is any indication, there appears to be frame rate issues. Also, I thought it was pulled from the store again.

On the other hand, Rolando is pretty fun.

I'm not.
Get Rolando if you're a fan of the Mario stuff (I think it's crap). It's cute and you roll and jump around using accelerometer.
Get Castle of Magic if you like platformer/adventure games.

Rolando frustrates me and I found it too hard to early on.
Castle of Magic is the best platformer on the iPhone and has great graphics, as does Rolando

Just depends what genre you like the most

Rolando is either love or hate. I personally love it! I suggest Rolando over Castle of Magic because I think that it's more fun and you'll know if you want Rolando 2 when it comes out (don't get Rolando 2 without finishing 1).
