  • Too easy

    by Jerryaumen87

    A good game but my only complaint is that the computer players are too easy. Maybe have an easy, normal, hard, very hard. Not realistic when playing computer. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. Also would like to see solo stats like how many wins and losses you have in solo mode along with earnings and you can add other little stats in there too. Finally, would like to see prize packages on the wheel. Those little tweets are why it's 4 stars instead of 5.

  • Wheel of Fortune

    by paperduck65

    After getting to the $600,000,500 winning mark, my additional winnings are not added to my total, and in some instances, my total amount actually decreases. I know this is only a game, but I would like to see my winnings added correctly.

  • I would give it five stars...

    by Kathleen Burns

    But it needs an improvement. The computer players are lame- no competition, lousy guesses that cannot help you solve the puzzle if you get stumped. There needs to be different levels like many other games. However, I definitely find it enjoyable and worth the price!

  • Can't turn off sound either

    by Me.slp

    I like this well enough but I really like to listen to other things while playing games so being able to turn off the sound would be better. Also I agree Vanna should be included.

  • Jber

    by Jtc19

    Fun gm but could use better graphics and not just....." show me a K Pat" it gets annoying but a great gm.......

  • Weel Of Fourchin

    by Aabbccddeeffgghhgg

    I like this app but it has a lot of glitices and it runs down my battry life

  • Express please

    by Flameslingerlover

    This game is very fun better then the copycat versions but I would like it if they would have an express wedge and more variety of toss up puzzles also please make the buzzer button bigger so it is easier to press

  • Where is Vanna?

    by Yak55SP

    This is a great game, no doubt. But the absence of Vanna White is a major downer, not to mention she is replaced by a *+=^%# Dalmatian??????? That's just adding insult to injury. You people are idiots to say the very least!

  • Cannot turn of sound

    by mary Pruet

    The puzzles are good and current and there are tons of ways to customize your game but if you would like to listen to music and play the game good luck. There is no way to mute the sound unless you mute your device completely, thus leaving you with no sound and no music. I tried going to the settings in my game and the settings on my iPad amd there was do way to fix this

  • Wheel of Fortune

    by echapman8321

    This game is soooo much FUN!!!! It is great for for your mind, keeps you guessing .

  • Too easy

    by StrudelCutey4427

    I love this game, both the app and the show. But the app has one flaw and that is: the computer players are not smart enough to be mistaken for humans. The puzzle will be, for example, "Wheel of Fortu-e" and the CPU's will guess c and x. A great game, but make the competition stronger.

  • Fun, but....

    by Renny the old

    Graphics not as nice as the older version. It makes Pat look like a villain

  • Please add Express Wedge

    by joacen

    Love this game, but could you make an update that includes the Express wedge? It has made for some exciting rounds on TV and I would love to have it in this game.

  • Totally worth the money

    by Bhcdhhgfujdsyh

    The puzzles are fun and I love the details!!! Love love love it!!! But there's only one thing I wish they could change and that's about the characters. I wish u could here them talk. But other than that I think it fantastic!! Just love it!!!!!!

  • Dr Jones

    by DJonesBoyz

    Fun & seemingly addictive as well! You can play with others, you just have to be 10% smarter than the game! Enjoy!

  • Great

    by mattie -

    I watch Wheel and Jeopardy every day. This game is great and is just like the real thing!

  • I like the puzzles

    by deeeman

    The puzzles on this game are fun in solo and in pass/play mode. However, I think the online version is incredibly lacking. Why doesn't it assign you an opponent who is actually online? Instead they just give you a random opponent and you have to wait for them to log in to play them. I also think there should be multiple player levels in this game. That may take time to develop, but it would certainly make it more fun and interactive. You may or may not listen to me, but these are my thoughts about the Wheel of Fortune game for IPad.

  • No mute option!!!

    by Indy_starr

    How do you mute the sound????

  • Disney princess

    by Mother princess

    It is fun to play. Would like more levels

  • Amazing game, but...

    by Please fix!!!

    This game is awesome, I play it a lot, but every time I get to the end round, the prize is always 30,000. Do you think that you can fix that? Plz and thanks

  • Needs work

    by deeeman

    The puzzles on this game are fun in solo and in pass/play mode. However, I think the online version is incredibly lacking. I have just a few questions to pick Sony's brain. *Why doesn't it assign you an opponent who is actually online? Instead, they just give you a random opponent and you have to wait for them to sign in before you play it. *Why don't they have (fantasy) prize packages like they do on the TV show? It would also make this game more interesting. I used to play an old version of this game for Windows 98 and it prize packages on it. *I also think there should be difficulty levels on this game. Some of the puzzles are ridiculously easy and I don't think they would even put them on the show. I've noticed that my game has crashed a few times, and I have a new Ipad air. This game is fun if you like to multi task in solo mode and are a diehard fan of the show, but it is not fun for those who want to engage in online competition or with family and friends, It only has the "basic" difficulty level and it does not indicate if a user is online.

  • Terrible app

    by Ninjafurocks

    Do not get. Not worth it

  • Lacking

    by jaedeezy_fo_sheezy

    Single player is mediocre. AI players are dim witted, as in, they buy out vowels when it's their turn. Multiplayer(spin together using Facebook) blows. My partner and I tried playing together and there is sever lag on his iPad. Developers should incorporate a Bluetooth multiplayer mode, it would much more reliable. I'm thinking of asking for a refund.

  • Too slow!

    by AbeetT

    I would enjoy this game much more if it weren't so slow to load the multiplayer game.

  • I like the puzzles

  • Not worth it

    by number1carriefan

    How do u play against other people. I clicked on random opponent it started the toss up round but then it wouldn't do anything else after. It showed the other players got winnings but it actually didn't let me play against them what do u do.

  • Not so good Al

    by Jennychick

    You go bankrupt every other spin terrible!

  • So very close...

    by dogdayman

    Really great graphics and gameplay, but the lack of ability to change difficulty level (as the iPhone version has/had) makes this game about as challenging as if I were playing my 4-year-old niece. Gets boring very quickly when only you win. Better for kids or the elderly.

  • Way too easy!

    by MRIBM

    The game is too easy and needs different difficulty levels for different players.

  • Evey Eve

    by Evey M.

    I really like it!

  • Spin together is HORRIBLE!!

    by ORDGuy

    If you are playing long distance, I'm sure it would be fine, but if all together and want to play a game on multiple iPads at the SAME time, it is a complete waste!! If on the same network, you should be able to play together on each iPad in real time. Not worth the price as is.

  • Well.......

    by iluvmichigan

    Overall this is a good and fun game! But I liked it better before it's recent update! Still fun though.

  • Pretty good

    by nitewitch

    I like the game. I wish that other people could "build" their own character and earn their own awards.

  • Not Happy

    by Peace out 23

    I just got this and it does not work. It crashes within 20 seconds! I suggest not buying this

  • Realistic game

    by E in Carolina

    I feel like I am playing the actual game. The only thing missing is the "real" star of the show, Vanna!!

  • Poolgal

    by Warm Weather Person

    Love this game. Hard to put down!

  • Not a multiplayer game....

    by Oyen11

    To play with another person is a complete waste of time... It is not real time and you will sit and wait till their entire turn is over before you see anything... Takes forever! Since I bought this game to play with others, I wish I could get my money back..

  • Love this!!!!!

    by 64481910

    This is the best app ever!!! It is totally worth the $3!!!!!

  • Boring!

    by Barfbucket

    This game moves very slowly, and the characters make the exact same head shaking movements ALL the time- seems a little lame.

  • Loves it!!!

    by Dreww!!

    So much fun I play for hours!!!

  • Fun

    by OneReallyBigDog

    Always fun! Puts some pressure on you for solving the puzzles! Give it a try!

  • Excellent game !

    by Tobmeanornot

    It is just like being there in person !

  • Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    by Happy you know it:)

    Great game just one problem don't leave the sound it's sooooo LOUD!!!!!!!!

  • Refund !

    by Lolaadoee

    You pay $3 and there is still ads, you have to pay to buy clothing, and you can only play against robots

  • Spin together is terrible

    by Schwollen

    Overall the game is good but Spin together doesn't work well. There doesn't seem to be a way to sync up without a huge delay between turns. There is no way to invite someone without starting the game before they accept.

  • No way

    by genstanly

    Slow game and the characters are creepy looking.

  • Really Fun!

    by Ndgal112

    This is a great game - so happy with it!

  • Fun BUT

    by Hollow24/7

    the game is BUGGY I just bought it and it said a game was over but it wasn't and said the other player won even though the game didn't finish. Hopefully they fix the bugs.

  • Happy

    by Buffman316

    Love this app

  • Pat's head is in the way

    by difihahufhaodalf486739484

    OK, it seems that someone who works for the company that made this is monitoring the reviewing. How could NOBODY even realize that Pat's head is in the way of one letter near the bottom? Please, guys, listen to THIS review, and not any of the five stars. They are all fakes

  • Too easy

    by drummer647

    The computer characters are way too easy. They always choose a letter that is not on the board, as if they are narrowing down the choices for me. Even when the letter choices are obvious, they choose a ridiculous one like X or Q. Also they never try to solve the puzzle until there is one or two letters remaining. I'd like to see a version where you can change the difficulty of the computer players.

  • the best!!!

    by Pang Man Cheng

    now I can play this game with my friends and family, !!! good

  • Good

    by Cygnusxone

    Great game, needs a settings option to change sfx and music volumes though. Fix that and i'll rate 5 stars

  • Love it to pass the time away

    by Arkie62

    I have enjoyed playing this game for a few months now. When my young grandchildren come, they get a big kick out of trying too. The 9 year old is actually pretty good at it. The only complaint I have is that the emcee stands in front of the board letters as the other players play. I would also like to see more themed outfits. I have enjoyed the Holiday changes...thanks and keep up the good work.

  • Maybe for the die-hard Wheel Of Fortune fan...

    by Celia Berru

    But personally, this game seems like an old game I had in the early 90's. it's just not for me. Takes too long for the game to get started. I don't care as much for choosing wardrobe for my character, as I do just playing the actual game.

  • Mrs.

    by Mnbvcxc

    My child loves to play this game, however, it moves entirely TOO SLOW! This game needs to be sped up, otherwise, it takes what too long to play.

  • Rigged

    by Bnm7882

    I would love this game except every time it's my turn I hit bankrupt. I've played it enough to know it's not a coincidence, it's rigged to make the player go bankrupt all the time and the computer only every once in a while. Very frustrating.

  • Good

    by Pa bon

    It is a great game

  • Please update

    by Zawie

    It won't let me in please update but it still is a good app

  • Love this game

    by cz999

    "Spin Together" always takes 2 attempts before it will load my opponents games on my screen. Love the game!

  • Fun but...

    by More doughnuts please

    It is fun except when there is just one obvious letter left to solve the puzzle and the opponents say some off the wall letter and lose their turn to me. I win!

  • Better than ever!

    by LittleNommers

    Love the xmas update! 'Tis the season for Wheel. Having so much fun with Spin Together. Sure beats yelling at the television when friends are over!

  • Awesome game!!!

    by ElFore

    The holiday update is perfect!!! Keep up the great work!

  • Mr

    by Jpyott

    Don't waist your money. Joke! Spin together is a joke. You can't watch your friend play in real time. It's delayed until they loose there turn. Then you watch what they did. Stupid. You can not connect via wi-fi. Both must buy the game... It can not be shared. Very poor set-up. Could be outstanding but this version is terrible. So sad companies steal for there own gain.

  • Love it!
