Three Notable Sales: SMB, Boulder Dash Rocks, and Rolando

Sales are very common in the App Store, and some of them just happen to be some high profile games.  Today, 3 games went on sale, and each one is very much worth their sale price in my opinion.  Let’s take a closer look at these games to see which one is for you.

Super Monkey Ball:  The game is now $3.99 from the initial $5.99, and it’s probably the only game SEGA has made right on the iPhone.  $3.99 is still a bit high, but the game includes 100s of levels, and the controls aren’t as bad as everyone says they are.

Boulder Dash Rocks:  Following the release of the classic Boulder Dash on the iPhone, First Star Software has released a completely re-skinned game on the iPhone.  Consumer reports have been overwhelmingly positive, and for $0.99, it’s definitely a steal.  Note: It seems like the price change has not taken full effect yet, please wait a few until the price change shows up.

Rolando:  One of the most original titles in the App Store, Rolando is definitely a must have at the $2.99 sale price.  Originally released for $9.99, the game was praised for its multitouch controls and great puzzle elements.  There’s also a lite version to try out, but personally, just go ahead and buy the full version.

Each of the games mentioned is worth the sale price, but if you’re on a tight budget, I suggest you get Rolando and Boulder Dash Rocks.  Both have proven to be great titles on the iPhone, and while Super Monkey Ball is still a great title, the $3.99 price tag may be a little high for some people.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.

One thought on “Three Notable Sales: SMB, Boulder Dash Rocks, and Rolando

  1. I think Rolando 2 is better than Rolando in every aspect, but it’s still worth a playthrough for newcomers to the series. Plus+ support is coming soon too.
