It may be worth $10. I tried the lite version and enjoyed it. Then there are those who think it sucks. It's all suggestive.

I got Rolando with a $10 gift card, so technically I got it for free. ^_^ I would have easily paid $10 for it though. I fully believe in paying full price for quality titles to help support the iPhone independent development community. At $4.99, this game is a steal that everyone should get.

Lot's of people are going to say that because it's true. While short, Rolando was one of the most well rounded games released for this platform so far. I'm not going to throw a fit because the company wants to boost sales by lowering the price. I always say - capitalism. If the price is right for me I buy it, $9.99 at release was fine with me.

Cheers

Why? This game came out months ago, plus since when are you concerned about other peoples money. It was easily worth $9.99

Nah, I don't regret getting it. I don't think I would've held off until now.
