Rolando= not fun :(

does anyone agree with me that rolando is a little fun but certainly not worth the 10 or 6 dollars. it gets too repetitive and after a few days i dont use it at all. i regret buying it now
BOUNCE ON IS WAY BETTER!

It amazes me how people act like not liking a game is a new concept.

Do you like every 360, PS3 and Wii game?

Every game released on consoles before that?

So you don't like the game, some people like things others don't.

Welcome to life, I'm sorry you made a bad purchasing decision.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

well for the level of polish itself I actually find it quite worth it.

While I do think it was a bit over-hyped, I also think it's worth the asking price - even at its original $9.99.

Incredible polish, visuals, sound, replay value (trophies, time challenge) all add to a great experience. It's a matter of taste, as with everything but I don't see how it is not worth the price. It might not be your genre, or your 'thing', but it still is a great game in its kind.

PS. Did you get to the latter stages where other elements of gameplay are added - don't want to spoil it if you have not.

Cheers.

Well, that may be true, but Rolando is touted as one of the big hits of '08. It would be a bit dumb if somebody starts a similar topic about some obscure App that nobody knows about, but Rolando is a big thing. It's like Halo 3 to the Xbox, or MGS4 to the PS3. A big game should have more opinions, and it doesn't help that Pocketgamer and how-many-other-sites claim it's the must-have of '08. So to have an argument that it isn't all that fun is important for people to decide whether to buy it or not.

As for the subject of the topic itself, I can safely say that it is very fun. But the problem is that it's a puzzle game. Once you finish a puzzle game, it isn't a puzzle anymore, which detracts from the replayability. So while it's really fun and cute and one of the supposed best games of last year, you may be better of spending $6.99 on something more replayable.

Ngmoco never said their game would be everyones cup of tea. The hype was created by fan boys. It's a fun game alot more immersive than 7 $1 bills sitting in your pocket.
