Pretty close, but not entirely authentic
For what the game is, it's pretty good. As a purist, I have some issues with how the game is implemented.
For a more authentic feel, the change in set decor should be really timed to the years that it actually was used. For example, the newer sets should not be used until later in the 2000s. The "new" Price is Right set should not be used later in the 1970s era. Some of the incidental music is not used in the proper context (for example the "C'mon Down" music was different in the early 1970s). Some of the games are hard to play/control (like spinning the Showcase Showdown wheel, Hole in One). A reminder of what year we're in somewhere on-screen would be helpful also.
I have several issues with the Showcase Showdown. If you to match the leader's score in one spin, you are forced to "spin again" and not given the option to do a spinoff, as in the show. It's not clear how to control the power for spinning the wheel (maybe that's by design). I've seen bugs in the spinning process where it would jump to a value I had already spun past. The proper music cues aren't used in this section either.
The app also occasionally crashes, especially when you win a showcase. It also seems to get stuck when transitioning between segments (e.g. Showcase Showdown versus Showcase).
Great game, needs tech help
The Price is Right TV show holds many childhood memories for me. it is great to play all the games I have grown up with. It is fun, however, the slowness between screens is extremely irritating. There is a SKIP button in some areas that moves it along, and one you cannot see but if you press in the same area it moves (during the explanation of the Showcase Showdown wheel). BUT it's really frustrating when you are waiting for another contestant on contestant's row, told to come on stage, win or lose at the showdown, or when you stand next to your price tag of winnings and just stand there in all these cases with nothing to do and can't move the game along. Please fix this. So many of these games, including ones like this and Wheel of Fortune where you'd expect better quality given the license use if the names and it's always like someone quickly made the game and didn't test it or spend the time on it at all. I also rarely win the Showcase Showdown with my wheel spins but that could just be my luck :-)
Lots of Fun but needs upgrades
I wish I didn't have to hear the rules every time I go to the wheel. We all know the rules and get annoyed hearing it over and over. Please give skip option. Also, it would be so much fun to be able to pick our favorite games and just play those sometimes, rather than entire game. For example, I might want to play pinko over and over. And finally, you can skip the description of items to bid on, but sometimes it's important to hear it in order to bid, yet we tend to get impatient. How about a very brief written description when skipping lengthy one? With these improvements I would play much more!!! And can Vanna get a new look?!
On the positive, I like just about everything else. What a fun game! Worth the cost.
