Press Your Luck for iPhone
Find, download, and install iOS apps safely from the App Store
Press Your Luck is an iPhone game that's based on the popular game show "Press Your Luck" from the 1980s. The app does a great job of recreating the format of the original TV version, with three contestants who battle to answer four trivia questions in order to add to their spin count for when they face The Big Wall at the end of the round. Each correctly answered question gets you three more spins at the Big Wall. Once it's your turn to spin, you'll have the option to spin or pass, which you will choose based on how much money you've won so far and how much you want to risk getting a Whammy, a cartoon character that takes all your money and prizes.
For the uninitiated, Press Your Luck (and everything I've written about it so far) will probably sound like silly nonsense, and frankly, it probably is. The game also requires you to wait while the other contestants answer, which can get a bit frustrating. But if you're like me and enjoyed this game show, Press Your Luck for iPhone is true to the original with funny Whammy animations, contestants that actually say "No Whammies, no Whammies, stop!" and multiplayer options so you can pass your iPhone back and forth among friends. You also get a staggering amount of customization for your character's outfits, which only adds to the fun. Overall, Press Your Luck will probably appeal more to those who have seen the show, but people who like trivia with a mix of cash and prizes will appreciate the attention to detail in this game.
