Rolando Lite is a free preview of the first eight levels in Rolando, a clever and gorgeously realized arcade puzzler in which you coax charismatic little balls (Rolandos) through ever more complex levels. The game makes excellent use of the iPhone and iPod Touch, as you touch or drag to select Rolandos, tilt your device to roll them, swipe upward to jump, drag with two fingers to look around a level, and use your finger to rotate, push, and pull certain objects (these being "sacred" objects that only you--the exalted "Finger"--can manipulate).

These initial levels, set in the "Honeycup Meadows" tutorial world, provide a fun introduction to the game, and hidden diamonds, time challenges, and achievements provide a surprising amount of replay value for the Lite version. Don't be surprised, though, to find yourself wanting to buy the full game. The solid gameplay and supercharming soundtrack, setting, and dialogue make this one of the best games for the iPhone and iPod Touch, and almost certainly one of those applications you'll use to show off your device.
