Rolando 1 or 2

i never got the original Rolando, because i just got my iPod Touch a few weeks ago. As i see more screenshots and reviews, i want it more. I went to go buy it, and i noticed that there is Rolando 2 now available, and is getting great reviews as well.

Should i get Rolando 1 before i buy Rolando 2? Or should i get Rolando 2 without ever playing Rolando 1?

I play Russian Roulette everyday, a man's sport, with a bullet called life, yeah mama called life - System Of A Down

Yeah, I have Rolando 1 and have yet to finish it but enjoy the gameplay. I'll get 2 when it hits $5.99.

1) Tried out AT&T tethering and did not have enough money for the pole.
2) Apple still hasn't fixed the no-hardware-keyboard bug.
3) Still can't use the "Cut" function on the AT&T bill...current 4.x issues

So far, I like Rolando 2 better, but I suggest #1. Considering you haven't played it and the gameplay for both is ridiculously similar, and Rolando is cheaper, I'd go with #1

I agree with this. While Rolando 2 is considerably better in all aspects, 1 has even more content for less money. I would recommend both, though. You can't go wrong with Rolando games.

Except, Rolando 2 expands on nearly every aspect of the original and adds lots of new stuff to the mix too. The level design is better I think, with many more elements throughout, such as water hazards, multiple bomb types, mine carts etc. There is a real reason to replay levels to get the medals and highscores with plus+ and the controls have been refined too. Plus the graphics are nicer (less of a rip on LocoRoco) and the characters much better too. Plus the story is quite cool. Overall, 2 is what a good sequel should be: an improvement over the original.
