Macgamestore.com and uclick have teamed up to release Pat Sajak’s Trivia Gems for the Mac. The game costs $19.95; it’s available as a demo download.
In Pat Sajak’s Trivia Gems, you pick from one of several different game types. You climb the pyramid by answering trivia question triplets. Each time you answer a question correctly you climb one step closer to the top, but you have to be careful, as each step on the pyramid will lead to a different category. You can place your wager depending on how confident you are in your answers.
Specials like Pat’s Brain Busters and Gem of a Question help you rack up extra points; once you reach the top, Pat’s Power Gem is a bonus round that will let you double your money if you play it right. The game features single and multiplayer (hot seat) modes, IQ and longest streak tracking, and voice overs by the host of Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajak.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later, 500MHz or faster processor and 128MB RAM.
