Rolando is a platform adventure in which the player must rescue small creatures called Rolandos. The Rolandos are moved by rolling left or right on the screen by tilting the iPhone or iPod touch. Players manipulate the environments by touching the screen. Yellow objects are moveable and the player must configure the scene to solve puzzles and create paths through which the Rolandos roll to safety.

The Rolandos worship the player as a diety, referring to "the Finger" and pleading to it for help. The story of the game takes place over four worlds of Rolandoland. Each world has a unique art style and different game mechanics, including bombs, fans, levers, pulley systems, pushable debris, light beams, "drawn paths" (dynamic surfaces drawn by touching and dragging on the screen) and motorized platforms. Rolando employs a two dimensional, cartoon-shaded vector art style and a pallete of strong primary hues.
