Oh boy, the parties keep coming! I'm hosting a Twitter party on July 1 to celebrate the release of the new Wheel of Fortune Platinum game for the iPhone and iTouch. We'll be playing everyone's favorite TV show game, the Wheel of Fortune, on Twitter, and those who solve the puzzle first will get to win some fun prizes!
About Wheel of Fortune Platinum
Are you ready to spin and win? Sony Pictures Home Entertainment today announced the new Wheel of Fortune Platinum game for the iPhone and iPod Touch that will have fans across America shouting "WHEEL – OF – FORTUNE!" This advanced Wheel of Fortune Platinum iPhone game virtually transports users to the current set of the iconic television series, now in its twenty-eighth season. With just the click of a button, 'Wheel' loyalists will extol those magic words, "I'd like to solve the puzzle."
Weighing a whole lot less than the 4,000-pound TV wheel, word-solving enthusiasts can use the iPhone and iPod Touch to spin the virtual wheel with a simple whirl of the finger. The game features an updated set backdrop where users can see the illuminated puzzle board letters revealed right in front of their eyes. To further enhance the game show experience, users play the game from a contestant view, complete with special podium screen animations.
Use Bluetooth or the online multi-player capabilities to compete against your friends and see who can claim the $1 Million wedge. The "recommend to a friend" option also allows players to invite more iPhone gamers to the game. Leaderboards track the competition against other players as puzzles are solved and prizes earned.
Wheel of Fortune Platinum is available on the iPhone and iPod Touch starting today, followed by the iPad this summer. The game will retail for $4.99.
