I have hazy memories of The Price Is Right – I was but a wee child of seven or eight when this show was all the rage. It wasn’t that easy to relate to – compared to other popular game shows, TPIR is very specific when it comes to its audience. A kid growing up in the Philippines would have no idea how much an item or a showcase ought to cost, and before globalization kicked in, most of the brands and items on display were unfamiliar and “imported.” My jaw dropped at the gorgeous and creatively presented showcase items and the creativity the producers put in to make each Showcase Showdown unique.
In my humble opinion, Ludia has been one of the best developers of gameshow-themed apps. I picked up The Price Is Right pretty much right when it came out, got Family Feud for the wife over the holidays. They really know what they are doing and it shows. Finally, Ludia released Press Your Luck, the trivia game based on the 80′s game show. It’s got my high hopes behind it; read on to see if I was able to get my Big Bucks and avoid the Whammies!
Feel free to discuss this review of Press Your Luck in our forums.
For some of you, the very sight of Waldo (also known as Wally and Effy depending on where you’re from) will surely invoke some warm and fuzzy feelings from your more youthful days.
