Fans of original iPhone game Rolando will be thrilled to hear that Rolando: Royal Edition, a remastered version of the 2008 platform-style puzzle game, is now available from the App Store on iPhone and iPad.

Rolando was one of the first games available on the ‌iPhone‌ back when the ‌App Store‌ first launched, and at the time, our sister site TouchArcade said it was among the "best games the ‌App Store‌ has to offer."


Rolando: Royal Edition is an overhauled version of the first Rolando game, featuring updated graphics, redesigned levels, and new mechanics. According to HandCircus, the entire game has been updated with new content.

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!

In Rolando, the aim of the game is to guide a gang of Rolandos through traps and puzzles on a quest to save the sages from Shadow Creatures. Players use touch, tap, and tilt gestures as a control mechanism, and with the exception of new mechanics and updates to the design, original Rolando gameplay is intact.

Rolando: Royal Edition can be purchased from the ‌App Store‌ for $2.99. [Direct Link]

I think I speak for everyone when I say: I feel awkward that I’ve never heard of this game.
It was a classic, most iPhone users had it at the time.
