Two of America’s most beloved TV game shows—Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune—kick off new seasons tonight. If you’re one of their wheel-spinning, letter-flipping, question-forming fans, check out the improved Windows Phone editions of each game. Publisher Sony Pictures not only just released major updates for each this past week, but rolled out the games for the first time to Windows Phone Stores in the US, Canada, UK, and other markets.
Jeopardy! for Windows Phone ($1.99) recreates look and feel of the quiz show down to the handwritten names on the podiums (which you scrawl in with your finger) and real-life announcer Johnny Gilbert’s voice as you take the stage. Just like the TV show, the Windows Phone game tests your knowledge on topics ranging from popular culture to world history and features more than 2700 clues from the show’s writers. Buy it now
Wheel of Fortune
Wheel of Fortune ($4.99) features more than 1,800 puzzles crafted by the show’s writers. Regular “Wheel” watchers will appreciate the authentic sound effects, music, and graphics. Thanks to a new update, the game now allows you to customize your avatar, choose different difficulty levels, and enjoy a pass-and-play multiplayer mode. (Jeopardy! has all these upgrades plus the ability to compete against computer players in solo mode.) Buy it now.
It would have been nice to see these as Xbox Live titles instead. And I have to agree with Hawk. I would love to see Pandora and especially Instagram come to Windows Phone as well as the rest of the Angry Bird titles. But, I'm still waiting on Draw Something and Words With Friends that was promised. :-/
Will Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy game apps be added to the Windows Store for Windows 8 any time soon?
But, I've always been here....oh, wait I see what you mean. Lol!!
@Rodney: Good to have you back, dude. :-)
iPhones are for girls! lol... I just came to this conclusion after thinking about how many female friends I have who have iPhones, and how many of my male friends have other devices..... I'm just sayin
Good point...now how about Instagram and Pandora! Maybe once WP8 arrives, new apps will follow!
If only every week started off with this many big name apps being released we'd be all set...
