Is Rolando 2 worth the 10 bucks or wait?

Was wondering if currently it is worth the 9.99 which is alot for an iphone game.

When will the game have a price drop, I thought rolando 1 once had a price drop...

Rolando 1 is currently $5.99. The final patch for R1 was submitted a few days ago that unlocks the remaining secret levels. It is at this time I am guessing a price drop on both titles with occur. R1 had a price drop a month into it's release, but I don't see R2 having a drop until R1 does again.

I think it's worth $10, yes. It's high quality, very fun and interactive.

I think it is worth the 10 dollars but if you are like me and barely ever have money to spend on apps, I would wait until the price drops or there is a sale

Definitely worth it. One of if not the favourite app on my iPod Touch. Amazingly polished. Just buy it. It is far beyond the quality of many PSP and console games I've seen.

Firstly $9.99 is not "a lot for an iPhone game" of this quality. The gameplay is excellent, graphics top notch and most of all its so much fun. The game will last you about 5 hours on a single play through, but to get the most of it you need to sign up for plus+ and get all the achievements and try to get some highscores. That's where there is a ton of replay value. I'm serious when I say if this was released on PSP it would be more than $20 as is.

Secondly, just because Rolando 1 got a price drop, doesn't necessarily mean this will. Rolando 1 sold really well in that 1st month, this barely touched the charts. It depends what strategy ngmoco wants to take, but you can't always rely on there being a sale or price drop.

What sales strategy does ngmoco have though? They thought removing topple and rolando was a good idea, and making dropship free to boot =P

The game is definitely worth $10. But, I'm pretty sure a price drop will come. It depends on how desperately you want to play the game I guess.
