Catch your favorite television show host, Pat Sajak, who after creating a history on the small screen, is all set with his new effort to host a game show on the PC screen. Certainly, it's a nice gesture towards his fan following.

On the auspicious occasion of his turning 60, Pat came up with this idea of getting more close to his people through PC games, hence the birth of Pat Sajak's Trivia Gems.

Though the gaming concepts have been mooched by other TV game shows, but ultimately it distinguishes itself as a fresh and unique experience. Graphics and music soundtrack don't blend with each other as well as the gamer, but at the end of it you'll realize that it was worth the ignorance.

Just to give you a brief idea about it, this computer game show stars you as a contestant competing for winning cash. Answer the questions correctly by choosing the correct option from the multiple choice trivia questions. The questions are categorized under a handful of categories. A 3-D pyramid dominates the entire screen which is built with cubes of a different color. The colored cubes represent a different category. Pink is Religion, etc. You have to begin at the bottom of this pyramid but first select a game token first, and then start.

Answering each question correctly lets you gradually work your way up to the top spot. A player must have the ability to examine critically as to how to work out the best path to the top. An incorrect answer, unfortunately, might take you to a particular color cube which you try to chide away and make the game play harder. With only 60 seconds in hand to answer all the 3 questions you are served with, your brows would be crumpled all the time. Each question is associated with a bet that has to be placed according to your knowledge about the question. Choose your bet using a slider that has options like, May be or may be not, no idea, for sure, and some more like these. Further, the bet is packaged with some amount of money. The more sure you are, the more money the bet is for. For a correct answer that amount is added to your account else, it is deducted. This feels like a clone feature to something like that in Final Jeopardy.

– With an Unlimited Play,

– Thousands of Trivia Questions,

– Three Game Modes: Trivia Gems- the main single-player mode

– Trivia 10- a fast track game of 10 assorted questions

– Trivia Players- a group play for up to 3 players

And, Exciting Bonus Rounds, the game is an excellent pick for playing individually or as a group. The mini bonuses games are unique as each one has different way of putting up questions.

The meat lies in all the above key features plus the production values. Audio-visuals are just OK and tolerable. Because of Pat taking care of the anchoring, the game play is a fair experience. With tit bits from here and there bundled up in this package, it still somehow manages with some uniqueness. Overall it's a fun play. A tip to keep you climbing up would be to analyze your strong topics and week ones too, then chalk out a plan to move up, choosing the correct color. Also, make sure to keep the bet towards the lower side if you are not sure about any question. Download this from a free games site now to press play.
