Since the challenge comes mainly in finding the right paths to travel and not in defeating enemies, this is a game that adventure game novices can enjoy as much as experts.

Rolan's Curse is not a bad little game. Although the graphics aren't poor, they do little more than make the game functional. The sound is also fairly mediocre. The two-player option is a major bonus, allowing both players to venture around the place simultaneously. The major gripe is that the game is just so repetitive, although a password option does reduce some of the tedium.

Spielerisch bietet Rolan's Curse auf Dauer etwas zu wenig Abwechslung, um zu begeistern.

An der stark limitierten Grafik und Spielmechanik erkennt man sofort, dass "Rolan´s Curse" zu den älteren Spielen auf dem Game Boy gehört. Das Spiel ist deshalb kurzweilig, aber auf längere Zeit zu eintönig. Es ist nicht mehr als ein netter Zeitvertreib für nostalgische Handheld-Fans.

Sur Game Boy, on trouve quelques Action-RPG et Action-aventure de légende (Mystic Quest, Zelda: Link's Awakening, Gargoyle's Quest...), preuve que le génie de développeurs peut largement compenser les limitations d'un support. Hélas, Rolan's Curse, pourtant issu de la même génération, n'en fait pas partie, et est bien trop basique pour se poser en indispensable de la première portable de Nintendo. Ni passionnant, ni totalement repoussant, le jeu pourra amuser les amateurs de l'époque, et de défi.
