Rolando was the first iphone plat-former, and the first to get a sequil.
plus rolando is way better then sooziz and hook champ,both the original and the sequel.
dont get me wrong hook champ is a great game, one of my favorites too, but thats not the argument here, its which one of these games is the most ''classical'' iphone platformer, and i think rolando deserves that position.

The clone for classic Mario on the iPhone is: Ricky

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Except that it's a port of a free flash game.

How many levels are there in soosiz? I enjoyed the lite but longevity is an important issue for me.

Well, in terms of having an iconic character: the Rolando series. In terms of gameplay that is fast-paced and addictive: Soosiz.

Hook Champ is a better comparison, not least because it follows the principles of the classic Sonic games. Sonic used to be about momentum (that can lead to speed) but somehow people now mistake it for being just about speed. That was not what the Sonic games were about.

Hook Champ follows the 'momentum leading to speed' design, it also follows the multiple path design as well as the best path leading to better goodies, small shortcuts, springs, and water = bad. Indeed, it follows the designs so well that it 'outdoes' Sonic (games we have now) at being Sonic.
