    With a pleasant learning curve and gradual introduction to game features and environmental pitfalls Quest for the Golden Orchid is so polished that it comes across as effortless.

    Rolando 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid Review is the accelerometer-based sequel to the original Rolando. And it's nothing short of phenomenal.

    Colourful, imaginitive platforming with plenty of character and style. [Sept 2009, p.83]

    Rolando 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid is just a cool, cool game. Hand Circus built on everything that was wonderful about the original, but did not add anything that didn't fit just for the sake of making a big sequel.

    Rolando 2 rolls up cool new features and a thorough fine-tuning for a sequel that's nothing short of golden.

    The iPhone's best game emerges from the shadow of LocoRoco as one of the best portable puzzlers ever.

    There may well be gamers for whom this approach is too substantial, preferring instead the quick-fire charms of the iPhone's throwaway, two-minute-blast games. But where those titles often wither under sustained attention, Rolando 2 blossoms, and in doing so maintains the series' position at the very top of the handheld's library.

    The best iOS platformer to date, even two years later. Great gameplay, and unique. I've heard others comment it's a ripoff of locoroco, but I've since played that thinking it would be good and I didn't like it, the gameplay and controls are quite different. It's the last great game NGMOCO made before resorting to Freemium in app purchase junk. Well worth picking up, right up there with Soozis. Expand
