Maybe it was the way he stared at me, waiting to be moved along in his quest to save the princess. Maybe it was the surprised and disappointed look on his pixelated face when I accidentally dropped him off a cliff. Whatever it was, it didn't take long for me to become completely engaged and addicted to caring about what happened to Mario and his friends.
That kind of connection between player and game character are rare. Well, dare I say that I feel the same kind of connection to the cute little characters in Rolando that I felt for Mario, Luigi and their buddies? Is that possible in a game you play on your iPhone? It is indeed. In fact, Rolando is so much fun and so well designed, that it is hard to not to call it the perfect iPhone game. "
