How is Rolando on the battery?

I am thinking about getting Rolando (it seems similar to Trace, which I loved) but after an expensive mistake with Tetris, I am trying to avoid apps which drain the battery really quickly. Is Rolando okay on the battery, or does it drain it really fast? Can I play casually for say 15 or 20 minutes without losing all my juice?

Ya its surprisingly light on it, I naturally have my brightness way down but even with wi-fi on a few hours doesnt do NEARLY as much damage to your battery as Tetris.

Hmm, I would imagine this would drain the battery, but I guess the little guys moving around with the loaded backgrounds and levels already around them must not be too hard to process.. ( not big into knowing the hardware of the touch, don't really know what I'm talking about =P)

It's extremely light on your battery. You might say 'optimized to perfection'.

Played with WiFi on for 4 hours before the 20% warning poped up on a 2G Touch.
It's a 2D game, so it's obvious that it won't drain your battery as fast a BiA or HoS do. But they really optimized it.
I keep on finding new reasons to further enhance my love for this game xD

Yes do tell

yeah. do tell if rolando is hard on the battery as I am thinking of getting it. That and replayability value is usually the deciding factor for me as a consumer.
