The odd point here is in multiplayer mode: whether you get the right price or not, you still get to the main game.

After Contestant’s Row, the player proceeds to the main contests: Hole-in-One, Plinko, race Game, Master Key, Cliff Hangers, Punch a Bunch, and other. All games have the same rules and scenario as the original, so it is pretty easy to get with the game and complete the tasks. Some of the contests have wrong descriptions, like the price of the item in a game can be absolutely different (lower) than the real-life one.
WIth shortened space of imagination, the graphics of the game show is pretty simple, yet colorful. All scenes were made to resemble the original show, so you won’t find any creative decisions or impressive scenery. The main characters are TV show host, assistants and the participants. The audience itself looks homogeneous and perfectly plays its role.
