FremantleMedia released an iPhone version of the long running daytime gameshow The Price is Right [App Store, $4.99]

The 84.5MB iPhone game offers 16 of the pricing games from the gameshow in which contestants guess at the actual price of various items. Features include:

  • Single Player Mode: Play to avoid strikes and to rack up the biggest winnings.
  • Party Mode: Compete against up to 4 players to accumulate the highest value of prizes.
  • Includes 16 popular pricing games, plus Contestant’s Row, Big Wheel & Showcase Showdown.
  • Theme music, announcer audio and game sounds create a true-to-show experience.
  • Rack up achievements in your personal trophy room.

First impressions of the game show a well implemented game that is reasonably faithful to the game show. The game itself is somewhat condensed to allow for individual play (even if you don't win the Contestant's Row). The products are shown both with video clips and images with detailed descriptions. The announcer's voiceover follows you throughout the game.

Based on early play, it's hard to tell how many video clips there are, though it certainly contributes to the sizable 84.5MB size. Overall, a safe bet for those who are fans of the show.

    All the graphics and stuff look great, and I like watching an occasional Price is Right, but this isn't anything I'll be buying. I'm too addicted to Quick Draw.

    I hope they have audio samples from Bob Barker and Rod Roddy :). I am considering getting this game, looks like a good time killer.

    Looks great! I really want to buy it cause I love the show, but only 16 of the games being included kind of turns me off, its a good amount but nothing insane...especially for 5 bucks.

    added some first impressions to the article. Overall, well done. more or less faithful to the game show, though the actual play is a little tweaked to allow for individual play. in that, you don't have to win the Contestant's row to continue, but you do have to win the Big Wheel to play in the Showcase showdown.

    If you didn't love the show, I don't see any reason to get it. But if you did love the show, it seems a worthy version.

    Ironic name, given the recent kerfuffle over the pricing of iPhone games. Also this one could be more of a challenge for the developer to make into a global hit, since lots of different nations had their own Price is Right hosts (ours in the UK was Lesley Crowther - "Come On Down, The Price is Right!" - the host said that everywhere, right? :( )

    A few things a lot of reviews (and maybe players) seem to have missed. When you start the single player game you are given the choice between '3 Strikes' and 'Classic' mode. Classic exactly replicates the experience of being on the show. You stay at Contestant's Row until you win and if you don't win, the game ends. Also, all of the games have "achievements" to earn and if you do, you unlock them to play on their own without having to play the rest of the game proper.
