GameTek's home version of the classic game show The Price is Right. Bob Barker and the Beauties are not present, but a multitude of pricing games from the show, as well as the wheel and the showcase, have been faithfully replicated.
Four (or a maximum of eight, counting both rounds - the programme suggests switching players) contestants can play, with the computer filling in for the rest. Whether bidding on Contestant's Row or playing a pricing game, contestants will attempt to closely guess the price of an item provided. All items in the game are often-unintentionally-humorous misspellings of recognizable brand names, to avoid trademark infringement.
Pricing games include the Mountain Climbing (in which your 3 guesses must be less than $300 away in total, otherwise a goat will push you over the edge), Safe Cracking (in which you have 3 possibilities for each part of the price, and must correctly guess it) and the Dice Game (in which you accept or reject random rolls to get the real price).
There is a persistent Hall of Fame with winners and their scores, and a parser for guessing/bidding prices. Players have to type in their price guesses, and answer to the math of how "off" they were, as they would if they were on the show.
One of the most successful Mark Goodson shows ever created, The Price is Right is a famous CBS gameshow that has acquired a loyal following for its endless variety of "pricing games." The rule of the game is simple: guess the price of a prize on display.
Anyone in the audience may be called on to the 'contestant's row' for a chance of taking away huge prizes by guessing the value of that prize. The one who gets closest without going over the price moves forward to play a pricing game with the host, for a larger prize or group of prizes. As each player wins or loses their own game, another member of the studio audience replaces them on contestant's row. At the end of the show, every contestant who has played a game takes a spin on a wheel, and the closest to 100 plays the final showcase. Here they have to guess the price of a huge range of prizes and if they guess within the allowed range, they take all prizes home - if the price is right, of course.
The PC version of this inventive game is quite faithful to the TV original, although die-hard fans will be disappointed that only a few varieties of the pricing games are available. Computer players are also quite dumb, and the difficulty level can't be toggled. Still, given that it's the only official computer version of the show, fans will probably enjoy the game regardless.
