Rolando had good reviews, but is it worth 10 bucks? I think users want better games, but IMHO the game has to be exceptional to be at $10 when quite a few good ones are 99c or even free.

Any opinions?:cool:

Yes. Yes, yes, and yes again. It is most certainly exceptional - by far the best game on the AppStore.

First and only game I've spent $10 on and I'm not regretting it. Really a unique, fun game.

This game looks truly amazing and I will get it at some point, but I have been burnt before shelling out $10 only to have the app drop drastically a short time later. I know this may sound cheap, but I am going to give it some time and see what happens.
Who knows, may still end up paying $10 for it and will have missed out all that time by not having the game.

No, not at all. There's no tutorial and there needn't be one. It's incredibly simple, but incredibly fun. And Don, unfortunately, I don't think we'll see a price drop any time soon. I was reading a review with the developer today, and he seems pretty convinced that $10 is the right price point for the game. I guess it's possible though, depending on many people ask for a drop.

That's what inspired me to get it. I think it's too popular to drop in price any time soon.

I love it because it really feels like a true iPhone game. The gestures are very intuitive. It does get hard, though!

I will probably get is soon. I have watched the video,in fact I posted it in Social,and it does look like a fun game. I mean you can WASTE $10 on nothing in a heartbeat. I just remember paying $10 for Cro-Mag and then having it drop. Of course,I don't think Cro-Mag is in the same league as Rolando.

Rolando is worth the $10 hands down. In my opinion, this sets the bar for $10 games.

What stage are you at Dave? I'm almost done with the game - hopefully the developers will update it with more levels.

Downloading now! :p

I love being on the OTHER side of these price drops for a change! I've been burned by too many price drops to count!
