In about late 2011, Ludia made a game called "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? 2012 Edition" (they had made a game before based on Millionaire). The first one that came out around 2010 based on the clock version for the Nintendo DS and Wii. They were actually decent games. Same music, same dollar amounts, same lifelines. Everything seemed fine until they made 2012 edition.
First of all, the first round money tree is completely inaccurate. This is what Ludia had randomized in round 1:
At least Ludia got the round 2 values right.
Second of all, the lifelines are all out of whack. In round 1, all you get are two jump the questions. Where's Ask the Audience? But here's where I lost it. In round 2, they take away any of your remaining Jumps and give you only one Ask the Audience. Even if you don't have any Jumps left, you get an Ask the Audience. That is no how it should go.
Finally, the music is kind of weird. The first two round 1 cues are all right. But an cue number three, there's no melody anymore. And in round 2, if you get a question right, the music continues to play. So if you win the million, the million dollar question music continues to play while you're celebrating. Kind of hard to celebrate to that tune.
To me, I think that Millionaire? games should not be made by Ludia, but to some other game company. Look at Jellyvision! They made a pretty good PC game for Millionaire!
