Sony Pictures Television has released its new Jeopardy! game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Based on the popular quiz show of the same name, Jeopardy! lets players compete against two computer opponents, with the same gameplay as seen on the television show. Features include the ability for players to write their names on the podium using the touchscreen, a landscape view for showing both the contestants and categories at once, real sound effects from the game show including the Final Jeopardy theme, the ability for players to create their own custom contestants, and over 1,500 clues. Jeopardy! is available now from the App Store and sells for $5.

1,500 seems like a small number of clues.

I will only download this if I can play as Sean Connery.

1.  No Jeopardy in Canada?  Maybe they are punishing Trebek for defecting.
2.  Agree 1500 questions would pass quickly.
3.  I am so applied by the quality of the free apps that I really hate paying at all.
4.  Thank you #3 for reminding me of that Sean Connery SNL skit. Now I know I won’t get the app. There’s no way it can live up to that.
