Fun concept, sloppy execution

The idea is right up the alley of any Jeopardy fan. You get to play along and get a little reality check on how smart you really are/aren’t. However, after playing along with two shows I encountered multiple glitches that reduced my score and it made the game downright unplayable.

The voice response is about as reliable as you’d expect. It’s works about 90% of the time. If your answer involves a word with tricky pronunciation, you’re better off passing on the question than risking the loss (maybe a backup option to type your response would be nice). Also, sitting through the timer for EVERY SINGLE CLUE makes the game slow and time consuming. Jeopardy is a lot of fun when you have contestants machine-gunning their answers at Alex. But when you have to pause for 10 seconds after each clue it’s a bore. A “pass” button that allows the user to pick up the pace would be nice.

My phone app got disconnected a few times during the game as well. SMH.

Fun, but too much $$ per game

Great concept and interaction between my phone and my Apple TV. I had a blast playing, keeping pace against the players in the episode and even getting the Final Jeopardy right when they didn’t. I realized quickly that I had to speak VERY clearly, and did encounter a few pronunciation bugs. In one instance, the game even heard my correct answer exactly, yet still marked my response as incorrect.

Then, when the game ended, so did the fun. I learned that this was the only free trial game, and each individual episode thereafter costs up to about $1.00 EACH. A few cents less if you buy in bulk, but JEEZ. I agree with everyone else reviewing: that’s a lot to pay for a game style where each episode has zero replay value, unless you play with new people every time.

Suggestions: one free episode per day. Ad breaks during the “commercials.” And above all, lower the cost of your episode packs. Otherwise, I’ll have to charge my friends admission at the door.

Awesome concept but app needs help

This is a really, really fun app when it works. You have to have a lot of patience - sometimes the game will kick you out of the app entirely, either before the play starts or in the middle of a game. Sometimes the show will play but won't give you the option to buzz in. And sometimes you'll say the correct answer (it'll even show on the screen that you said it correctly) and the game will say that you answered incorrectly. I'd say there's probably a 50% success rate. It'd be nice to have somewhere to call for assistance - I've spent $60 so far on packages, and it'd be nice to get my money back on episodes I wasn't able to play. And if it matters - the tournament of champions was the worst for glitches - I maybe was able to play one full game in that package. And the All Star package was the one kicked me out of the app entirely the most. Thanks! Obviously it's fun when it works because I keep spending money...
