Wheel of Fortune out, $4.99

I searched and didn't see a thread even though this came out 4 hours ago. Figured you guys would be on it

Hmmm... it would have been better if Ludia got the rights... based on screenshots

Looks good, My wife loves the games, I just can't justify $5 on 1000 puzzles, I hate seeing repeat puzzles by the 1st week of owning a game, but I normally stay clear of them anyways...

Looks like a very poor version

I enjoyed watching it but I'm terrible at these types of games so it's a pass for me.

If you want something that is a quick play and the same type of game, i'd recommend iHangman. It's $.99 has about 39,000 words to challenge you in several categories and you can play a game in 1:00 or less. Also, it contains a dictionary for the words in the puzzles so if you don't know the word you might actually learn something. There's no wheel to spin or virtual prizes, but it is a very solid game.

what looks poor about it? I'm interested, I like game shows.
Screenshots don't show letter selection, do you think it's just the standard keyboard that comes up?
I also don't understand the 'skip' and 'menu' buttons, shouldn't it be 'spin' and 'solve'?

A quick video would answer lots of questions.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm sick of game show apps.

Well I just paid for this and its a bit poor TBH.

The wheel animation is very average. The graphics are very flat and could of been so much better.

The Price is right was a lot more polished. Its hard not to compare the two.

If you are a huge PIR fan then its worth it but I would wait for a price drop otherwise.
