The $100,000 Pyramid
DOS - 1988
Description of The $100,000 Pyramid
Discover The $100,000 Pyramid (also known as 100,000$ Pyramid), an excellent game of 1988. With 1st-person perspective, the publisher Box Office, Inc. had wonderful ideas around game show.
$100,000 Pyramid is a great computer version of The Pyramid game show, one of the most successful TV game shows ever made. The show was nominated 16 times for the Emmy Award, and won the Emmy nine times. This computer version is based on the latest version of the show, $100,000 Pyramid, hosted by John Davidson. The goal of this trivia quiz variant is to guess seven words in 30 seconds or less from a category that you select off the Pyramid. Played in three rounds, the team with the highest point total wins the game and moves on to the bonus round called The Winner's Circle for a chance at the grand prize. The object here is to describe what the category is: one person gives the clues, and the category is then guessed by the contestant. If the contestant guesses all six categories in 60 seconds or less, he/she wins the grand prize. This PC version of the show is very faithful to the original, although some of the questions are too obscure, and computer players' intelligence is quite low. Hundreds of trivia questions will likely keep fans entertained for hours, though, or at least the few minutes it'll take to reminisce about the golden days of television ;) Recommended, and be sure to use slow down programs (e.g. MoSlo or Bremze) to make the game winnable.

Whoever likes this game deserve to choke on a dick, including "Justyn" with a y here. Serious, what a stupid name.
