Jeopardy! is a 1993 quiz game based on the hit game show of the same name. It was released alongside with Wheel of Fortune (GG), making both the first (and one of the few) game show video games to appear on Game Gear.

The players are given an answer and they must respond in a form of question within 60 seconds. Money is gained for each correct question, and whoever has the most amount of it wins.

Music

The title screen music is a rendition of the show's theme by Merv Griffin, and it's nice to see that it made it into the game. However, the rest are just short fanfares, some of which can get pretty annoying.

Unlike the previously released Genesis version, this one doesn't credit the sound programmers neither in-game nor in the manual, but it's assumed that the music was composed by Mike Pierone, since he worked on most GameTek games at the time.
