    So I have exactly $11.00 on the app store and Im looking to get a fun game that will last me a while, and be really fun (duh).

    I have it narrowed down to Rolando and SimCity, so I need votes and reasons why to pick the one you think is better.

    Thanks

    Rolando, loads of levels and very addictive, Sim City is good too.

    Rolando is a game made for the iPhone.

    Sim City is a game ported to the iPhone.

    I think that the qualities added into Rolando make it a better choice.

    Yeah, the thing that is holding me back is replayability, like with SimCity its huge, i dont know about Rolando.

    Rolando=4 worlds of 36 levels

    Each level on average will take at least around 3 min.

    Once you have beat the game though there is not much you can do.

    Except try to get all the diamonds in the level, get every Rolando in the level, and beat the level within the challenge time limit.

    I got rolando and was severly disappointed, the graphics and story is decent but the controls are awful to me and I felt I was really let down for the high price.

    I look at it this way. Which would you prefer? A new game, made in 2008 specifically for the iPhone/Touch, or a game that's about 15 years old, you can play for free on your PC. I won't even say which is which and let you decide for yourself.

    On another note, check out many of the reviews and commentaries on Sim City, there seems to be some glitches, some save issues (beyond frustrating in such a game), and the controls can be difficult as well.

    Sure, Sim City may have more replayability in the long term, but for pure ingenuity and creativity, there is only 1 answer.
