Hack of Wheel of Fortune

Description:

Wheel of Fortune: Gamer Edition is a hack of GameTek’s 1988 classic version of the game show (not to be confused with the 1992 release, Wheel of Fortune Featuring Vanna White). This hack includes 1,001 video game-related puzzle answers in categories such as Game and Fictional Characters. The puzzles largely relate to retro games, but there are a lot of references to newer games as well. The opponents’ names have also been changed to those of well-known video game characters. (Please note the category “Fictional Character” appears as “FIC CHR” due to space limitations.)

NOTE: The game keeps track of which puzzles have been used in order to avoid the user encountering the same puzzle more than once. However, resetting the console or exiting the game will cause the game to lose track of which puzzles have been played. It is therefore recommended that save states be used prior to exiting and reentering the game to avoid repeats.

User Review Information

My preferred version of Wheel of Fortune!

Reviewed By: Cjleeh on 13 Sep 2020

I really like trivia question games, and while Wheel of Fortune is not exactly about answering trivia questions. It does give me that feel good vibe when I figure out the puzzle. I wanted to play Wheel of Fortune on the NES, but the antiquated puzzles were not interesting to me. Gamer Edition turns it into a brand new experience that would have otherwise been rather dull.
