Based on the long-running syndicated game show starring Pat Sajak as host and Vanna White as letter-turner, Wheel of Fortune for the Nintendo Game Boy brings the wheel-spinning, word-deciphering action to the palms of your hands.
Facing a large wheel and rows of hidden letters (on another screen) which spell out a word or series of words, your job is to spin the wheel and cross your fingers. If the wheel lands on a dollar amount or a FREE SPIN, you can buy a vowel or guess a consonant. If you guess a consonant correctly in the puzzle, you score points and get to keep spinning. If you successfully buy a vowel, you don't score any cash, but it is still your turn and you are that much closer to solving the puzzle. During any of your turns, you may choose to solve the puzzle. If the wheel stops on BANKRUPT or LOSE A TURN, or if you run out of time, then you're out of luck and it's the next person's turn. You can play by yourself, challenge the computer, or play against a friend or two. A bonus round at the end of each two out of three match allows the winner to compete for prizes. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
