The award-winning iPhone classic is back and better than ever! This brand-new ‘Royal Edition’ is a completely remastered Rolando - every interaction, every course, flower, trampoline, bomb, catapult and squirrel has been given a thorough scrub, buff and shine, making this the most gorgeous version yet!

The Kingdom has been invaded and the Rolandos are on a daring quest to save the sages from the clutches of the Shadow Creatures. Guide your intrepid gang of courageous Rolandos as they negotiate the toys, traps, puzzles and curious characters that fill this super-tactile world.

From the Spiky Commandos and mischievous Prince to the endlessly napping King and Queen - each Rolando gives you a different way to play!

Reach into the world to directly aid your Rolandos - hoist them up on elevators, launch bombs to clear their path and fling them across chasms with catapults.

From devious puzzles to action-packed platforming, a huge variety of challenges await - all set in a world bursting with fauna and flora, so charming you’ll want to move in!

Vibrant soundtrack from critically acclaimed producer and DJ Mr Scruff.

Rolando Royal edition is royally good

We enjoyed the original versions of Rolandos nearly a decade ago and were sad when it was dropped from the App Store. If you missed it the first time around, please don’t do that again. This is more than a re-release. With new graphics, a smoother and faster feel, updated sound effects, and the superb soundtrack from Mr. Scruff, this version is a real gem. If this is your first time getting acquainted with the Rolandos and enjoying their world is simple but they can get into sticky situations and will need your help. The challenging puzzles get addictive as you save your Rolly-Polly friends from the “baddies”. Capture the diamonds and solve the puzzles before the timer expires to win gold and max out your score. Our entire family loves this game. We hope the Rolandos are back forever. Don’t miss this must have game.

My favorite game has returned!

I had missed this game so much! It was my absolute favorite back when it came out and I was so bummed that it was discontinued for a while. This remake is so great! Same characters with official names, slightly different dialogue, new artwork, and same awesome music by Mr. Scruff!
I’d like to see if there’s an option to turn off the constant 3D tilting though, it’s a good upgrade, but an option to turn it off would be awesome!
Can’t wait for a remake of the sequel and see more later on! Thanks HandCircus!

Was excited, then Tilt happened!

By far the makings of a great game. But Tilt controls kill the experience for me. When I realized you were forcing Tilt, the first place I headed was the settings menu. And to my surprise no control options other than, you got it, Tilt sensitivity. I saw in another review you mentioned possible MFI controller support and that would be a great option. But why no onscreen virtual controls? Doesn’t seem reasonable to force Tilt unless you are willing to whip out a MFI controller. There are many scenarios where neither Tilt nor MFI controller support are useful or practical options. And imo a creative virtual control solution would enhance gameplay when done right.

Tilt controls here seem like an easy way out imo. You have a great game here, now make it even better with more control options and secure the coveted Game of the Year!!
