Fantastic concept but...
* Levels are out of order: You are expected to use tools (boomfinger) to beat levels before you get to the boomfinger tutorial level.
* CAMERA CONTROL: On more than one occasion I've had to completely restart a level because the camera controls prevented me from saving a character from death. At one point, you're expected to save the princess from what appears to be a bird's nest. Precious seconds tick away while she sits there talking, the camera completely locked on her.
* Controls: Boomfinger is incredibly twitchy. I've wasted many explosions and killed many Rolandos while attempting to select a unit.
* Controls+Camera: Nearly impossible to hit a rolling purple bomb when you have no control over the camera.
* Intuitive interface: No clear differentiation is made between items that behave differently in the world. Some red panels recede into the background, some are permanent. It is up to you to figure out which is which.
The game was fun, much of the music was quite good (Except the annoying one with the bell), unfortunately I will not be playing any more.
First, this game is fun, but it can get very frustrating. Second, the sale price is much better than the previous price, which was to high at 5.99. Third the contact update, was rather ridiculous. It supposedly added retina support, but the game is still somewhat grainy. Lastly, ngmoco (and everybody else, for that matter) should stop using "Plus+" all other third party "networks" is favor of the much better and much more centralized Game Center. I would strongly recommend another update to fix these issues.
This is easily one of my favorite games out there for iPod/iPhone. It keeps you interested with new things in each well constructed level. It also isn't too easy or too hard. This app gives you a fun and tongue-in-cheek adventure that will leave you waiting for Rolando 3 (if they're making one) as I am.
