wheel of fortune prize puzzle – Wheel of
Wheel of Fortune plays just like the television game show–Vanna included. Fans will oooh and aaah over the fantasy prizes and super jackpots, and will be instantly able to dive into the game and start spinning. Play in normal competition mode, solo mode, or tournament play in exotic locations ranging from New York City to a Dutch tulip field.
The game plays just as seen on TV: spin the wheel and pick letters to word puzzles, such as “same names,” “fill in the blank,” and “next line please.” One to three players can play from one keyboard–don’t worry if you can’t find an opponent; the computer will take over to create a two- or even three-person game. You may even find the computer to be more challenging than your human opponents, but also a little luckier.
This game is appealing for those of us eager to “spin the wheel” at any given moment. The fantasy prizes successfully trigger your materialistic side–and since most come in his-and-her sets, the singles out there can imagine picking up two prizes for one. The background settings include decent animation, but the wheel could have used some more attention: its small size and tendency to stick when spinning reduces its appeal. Finally, while it’s nice to have Vanna White as your virtual host, we couldn’t help asking, “Where’s Pat?” –Madeleine Miller
