Rolando 2

Simultaneously causing players to elbow fellow commuters while metaphorically elbowing iPhone gaming dissenters, the original Rolando was bursting with charm and surprise.

Superficially labelled a LocoRoco rip-off, owing to its tilt ‘n’ roll mechanics, art style and characterization, Rolando’s greater depth and more intricate puzzling - not to mention Mr Scruff’s awesome breakbeats - helped establish its characters as the iPhone’s first official game mascots.

Improving upon the original in every way, with 2.5D visuals, tweaked controls, vehicles and special fruit power-ups, Rolando 2 is the definitive version.
