Very enjoyable, with a few flaws
Very enjoyable game which is difficult to put down once you start playing. It follows the format of the TV show very well. There are a few issues with it which may hopefully be addressed in new versions, such as the counter physics are pretty poor sometimes, they can hang on with literally nothing holding them, and also when they fall from an upright position they float really slowly which is unrealistic and annoying. Also the game sometimes deems that a go is over before all the counters have dropped, and you don't get the money which is frustrating too. A small gripe is you only get general knowledge questions with the app, and have to pay for other categories which is a little bit off after having paid £1.49 for the app itself! Bugs me a bit when developers do that, feels like you're being fleeced a bit. All in all though a well executed game which is fun to play and passes the odd hour or two.
I have paid for the basic version of the game and so far I am enjoying it. I have played with the ai version and two player. Not sure what the others are talking about with floating discs, have had no witness of it. Generally follows the TV show as far as possible where answers are concerned. I would like to see the mystery prizes as seen on TV however. The ghost drops are included when they are not on TV. It is still fun to play even considering these faults. General knowledge questions are broad enough without the extra pack, but will probably buy them later. If you like the show, you will enjoy it. Oh yeah, could be a tweak made on the short fire round as it is a bit too short to get through the answers. Over all good.
The game structure mimics the show pretty well, there is the problem of repeated questions that does occur relatively quickly, but of course, you can pay for more questions (conveniently)!
That however is not the issue, the most frustrating part of this game is the counter dynamics, a lot of effort seems to have been put into the feel of the game, but no effort has been put into the physical properties of the counters they literally defy the laws of physics, hanging impossibly over the edge of the shelves, disappearing under seemingly flat counters, on one occasion I encountered a disc that stood on its edge for the duration of the game.
If you just like the question part of the game show, then this game is ok, albeit a relative short lifespan before repeats, if you want to play Tipping Point like they do on the TV, then prepare to be disappointed.
