Poll: Do you like Rolando?

This is a poll for everybody, because the game seems to be getting mixed reaction lately. I have it, and I love it, but I want to know what you all think. Post comments to explain.

I think some people are hating it only because of all the hype it got. I bought it and I enjoy it a lot. Others are complaining it is a little on the short side, but it really isn't too terribly short. It's a game that lasts at least five hours and more if you decide to get the achievements.

I'd give the game 9/10, but a perfect 10 if it had downloadable/user created levels. That way you wouldn't have to worry about the length of the game and it would help justify the price more for the people who don't like purchasing higher priced apps.

EDIT: ^Yes, what he said, about user created levels, that would be fun.

I dont have it, but the reason that i never bought it is because the gameplay never really impressed me. I mean honestly, it seemed a little boring, idk. I really should look up a gameplay vid on youtube or something to makea final judgement, but then theres the issue of its legnth. So i think before i bought it id have to know they were planning an expansion, or something of that sort.

every app should (in my opinion) have user created levels it makes the game more worth while and more fun etc.............

You don't like platformers? How is that possible? :P This is the highest quality platformer type game you can get for the iPhone. Toy Bot Diaries is definitely second on the list.

Thats what I think. I mean rolling colorful balls around, doesn't really attract my interest

I downloaded it and it really sucks. Rolling those balls around is so boring. I dont know how can they say that it is the best game on the iphone. I knew it since before it was released that it would suck.

I gave it a perfect 10 (well i go to 5, but same thing). Its a great game, and really fun. It is the greatest game currently on the app store, and should end up at #1 sometime, but only because Sim City boosted my confidence in $9.99 apps being #1.
