Surprisingly, the tilt/roll mechanic never gets old. The developers have done a great job of gradually introducing new control types and obstacles throughout the game. You'll have to master these moves while saving the Rolando, all while still trying to beat a time limit and maybe collecting some gems on the way.
Gaming on the iPhone is still young, and the game library shows a serious lack of innovation and imagination. It's a good thing that Rolando has come along, showing developers and gamers that real games can be made for the iPhone. Rolando sets itself apart from the rest of the "time wasters," proving to be a genuine portable gaming experience worth your time and money.
