I am w8yn for a price drop on 1 & 2 both... I am fine even if I get it when R4 or Rx is out..
Its just about what you want & when you want it.
I have seen peeps spend so much money on games as they want it the moment they are released, I am the other kinda fella.
I was Waiting for Rolando to go on a sale for quite some time now.... Now that it has, I am in a Jeopardy....
Could you Rolando Lovers list the differences which can help me decide.

PS : I do understand a few myself
~> 2.5D gfx in R2, not in R1.
~> Enemies can be Squashd o killed in R2, not in R1.
~> Plus+ is in both(Soon) however does not interest me.

What I am trying to understand is....
~> Which one of them is more Random
~> has more levels

I love the humor, gfx, sounds so far in R1 lite, have not finished it yet, will that help me decide ?

EDIT : Sorry.... just finishd my home work...

R1 has 36 levels & R2 has 45.... are they equally long & enjoyable in both ?


EDIT:
Thanks ngmoco
Rolando1 for 2.99 ? or Rolando2 for $5.99 ?

IMO Rolando 2 is more fun. Has the fun characters like the chili eating one that floats and I like that you can kill them by arrows and such. I also like how you can ride in carts. Rolando 1 is more challenging though, for sure. R1 took me much longer to finish and there are still secret levels I haven't finished (of course I'm super slow at finishing games in general).

Maybe start off with Rolando 1 because it's super cheap right now and see if Rolandos are your thing and then spend the "big" bucks.

Rolando 1. Then, if you like it, buy Rolando 2.

Yeh R1 for $2.99 is insane value for money. The game is quite hard though. I must say I find selecting and unselecting rolandos easier in 1 despite the more interesting gameplay mechanics in 2. They're both excellent but I'd definitely go R1 first at this price and then R2 when it comes down (which it will!)

Currently Playing: Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, Summoner Wars

Thank you all for your responses....
More PpL interested to share their Opinions ?
I believe that Rolandos are the Mario Bros for this platform, actually are much better, wanted to know which one is more fun & Random ? R1 for 2.99 ? or R2 for $9.99 ?

R1 was an insta-buy for me when it dropped. (Which I really expected to happen to promote R2, but hey - better late than never!)

Thats a very good suggestion...
But as R2 lite is not available, I will not be able to tell the difference, right ?

Also....
