ngmoco reinstates Rolando to App Store

Had taken it down to give R2 a clear run.

Publisher ngmoco has reversed its decision to remove Rolando from the iTunes App Store so that Rolando 2 could launch without any competition from the original.

"We did not intend to deprive you of the ability to re-download or update our games," the company told Offworld in a statement. "Rather, we had wanted to learn how well Rolando 2 would do at launch without the competition generated by its predecessor."

"The App Store is an entirely new animal, and we're always learning what it takes to deliver what you want."

Rolando 2: The Quest for the Golden Orchid will be a whole new game with four worlds, 36 levels and other unspecified additions. A third instalment will arrive in November, followed by some free downloadable extras.

We mention this as Rolando is brilliant, although initially rather similar to LocoRoco. Our Rolando review tells all.
