Wheel of Fortune is an American television game show created by Merv Griffin, premiering in 1975 with a syndicated version airing in 1983. Since 1986, the syndicated version has been adapted into various video games spanning numerous hardware generations. Most versions released in the 20th century were published by GameTek, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1998.
An Atari 2600 adaptation of Wheel of Fortune was planned by The Great Game Co. in 1983, but ended up being cancelled during development. In 1987 the first of GameTek's many Wheel games was published, with Sharedata as its developer; this version was released simultaneously on the Commodore 64 and the Nintendo Entertainment System, and subsequently spawned a second Commodore 64 version of Wheel from Sharedata, as well as a "Family Edition" and a "Junior Edition", both of which were exclusive to the NES and were developed by Rare Ltd. Neither host Pat Sajak nor hostess Vanna White is featured in any of these games; however, White is featured in a later NES game from GameTek and IJE Inc., which was released in 1992 and also appeared on the Sega Genesis, Super NES, and the Game Gear. The magazine Mega gave the Super NES and Genesis versions a score of 22%, saying that there was "no challenge". A "Deluxe Edition" was also released for the Super NES in 1994.
In 1994, Sony Imagesoft released a game based on Wheel for the Sega CD. Two years later, GameTek made plans to create adaptations for the Sega Saturn and the Panasonic 3DO, but both were canceled during development. On December 2, 1997, Take-Two Interactive released a Wheel game of its own for the Nintendo 64; this was Take-Two's last collaboration with GameTek, as the latter was on the verge of bankruptcy. The Sega CD and N64 versions of Wheel both feature full-motion video footage of White as host. The N64 version, in particular, received a score of 6.4 out of 10 from IGN, which praised it for "[managing] to do a respectable job duplicating the feel of the show, with smooth camera movements and a polygonal spinning wheel".
Artech Studios and Hasbro Interactive produced a video game adaptation of Wheel for Sony Computer Entertainment's PlayStation console on December 15, 1998; this version again features White appearing as host via FMV sequences, and a 3-D engine that allows it to have a presentation similar to that of the actual show. This particular version is compatible with a memory card which allows it to avoid previously played puzzles until the entire library has been played through. On September 12, 2000, Hasbro released a second PlayStation version of Wheel, which features a behind-the-scenes interview with White and a qualifying exam for contestant hopefuls. After this, Atari, Inc. released a PlayStation 2 edition in November 2003. On March 19, 2009, Sony Online Entertainment released a version of the show for the PlayStation 3 through the PlayStation Network; Chris Roper of IGN gave that version a 5.8 out of 10, saying that it felt "empty and lifeless" for not featuring any host or hostess or any voice work whatsoever, and also criticized the graphic quality, saying that the game was "not fully polished".
On November 2, 2010, THQ released video games based on Wheel of Fortune for Nintendo's Wii console and DS portable game system. This set of games is the first to feature Sajak as well as White. In 2012 THQ-published versions developed by Pipeworks Software appeared for the PlayStation 3, the Wii U,and Microsoft's Xbox 360.
