Quoted from cait001:
What's the story with WOF? It's sad that one isn't around more, and the code isn't finished. (And/or the finished code isn't released...)
But I really enjoyed WOF's general gameplay.
Playboy has 3 pinball machines and they're all supremely lazy efforts.
WOF started out actually being "Who Wants to be a Millionaire", then got changed to "Survivor" before finally becoming "Wheel of Fortune".
It's actually one of my favorite pins that I've owned. People laugh at me when I say that but the unique gameplay had me coming back for more. The voices were irritating and the code was beyond shallow (Wizard mode lights that are worthless because there is no wizard mode coded into the game).
I told Gary Stern this a few years ago and he wrinkled up his nose, made a face and said "Nope."
Another issue for the game was, at that time, Wheel of Fortune wasn't that huge outside of North America. Overseas sales were abysmal. At the end, Stern was blowing these out for around 3k.
WOF and BM66 are the two games I regret selling.
