Quick App: Rolando 2 Quest for the Golden Orchid for iPhone

Rolando 2 Quest for the Golden Orchid [$9.99 - iTunes link], available now for the iPhone (and iPod touch) shows that Ngmoco not only takes great gaming concepts and beautifully renders them on the iPhone, but that they can make those great concepts and renders even better.

New gameplay includes a 3D stylized world, driving, swimming, and flying, and -- now the Rolandos can fight back!

The first Rolando game won TiPb's Editor's Choice Award last time around, how does the new one stack up? If you give it a try, let us know!

Quick App: Rolando 2 Quest for the Golden Orchid for iPhone


I was gonna download Rolando last night but I wanted to wait but now I'm downloading Rolando 2 as I type. I liked the Lite version. This is worth my 9.99 =]

This game is great. The developers really know how to do it. They added a bunch of levels to the original Rolando after it's release. The production values are Big! Is this the first true sequel on the iPhone too?

I believe so GreenLightJerky. Unless you include TapTap Revenge and TapTap Revenge 2. But that could really be a toss up.
