It’s a by-the-book game version that has enough bells and whistles (including someone resembling Vanna White) to appeal to fans of the show. It’s a shame there’s no save feature to maintain the player’s monetary progress, but hey, it’s got the theme song!

Overall, this game isn’t bad. If you play it enough times a puzzle will repeat, but it is a better effort at a game show made video game than some such games for the NES were, and it is worth trying if you can find it fairly inexpensively.

If you like Wheel of Fortune then you will enjoy this version. But since it was the first of four released on the NES it is not the best version. Look for the one featuring Vanna White to get the best Wheel of Fortune on the NES. This one is tops because you can ask for a new puzzle if you get one that you’ve already had.

For better or for worse, Wheel of Fortune accurately represents a game of “Wheel of Fortune” in virtual 8-bit form. Even if you win, you don’t get to keep any money or prizes. Still, with the proper crowd, bragging rights are as much a prize as a new dishwasher.
