Wait for Rolando Price Drop?

I've been waiting for a price drop of Rolando since it came out, and now that it isn't in the Top 50 anymore, do you think I should hold out for a few more weeks, or should I just go ahead and buy it? (I know some people say that it is worth 10 bucks, but I am cheap )

they've got to lower the price if they want to remain on top paid apps - it's going down and down each day (hero of spart and brothers in arms had a boost since their price cut)

I'm waiting for this to come down in price as well (and Sim City). They always do.

I was waiting for the price drop as well, but I got impatient and ended up buying it. Trust me, wait for the price drop. Its a decent game, but not worth $10

that's exactly what i imagined (on the other hand, i got simcity at full price simply cause i played so much since '94 and think it was worth the 10$ tag...)

i'm not so sure i will enjoy rolando for 10 bucks as much as i would enjoy it for, say it, 5...

Yeah! It's worth it! I hate it when people are cheap like this... Just makes it seem like the app store will never get something of quality because everyone wants really low prices.

If any game out there is worth 9.99, Rolando is definitely it. I'm sure it will go on sale at some point but if you really want it - $10 bucks for AAA game is not THAT much.

I know most look at it as "hmm one $10 game or ten $1 games", but that's exactly why developers are afraid of investing time and resources into games with higher production - they're afraid no one will buy it.

I do understand some of your concerns, such as buying a game for full price then finding out a few days later that it's on sale. 1.) I don't think it will go on sale for another month at least. 2.) If it does go on sale, it will be 7.99 or 6.99 lowest.
