4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Version - No Network Access Required November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
The thing I like about this game most is that you don't have to have a connection to the Internet to use it. It works great as a single player and also works very well as a "pass and play" game with a friend.

The only downside for me is that it treats each question as a multiple choice. I think it would be better if it was more like some other games I have seen that make you actually type in an answer. All-in-all a very nice implemetation of a classic. Recommended.

March 21, 2014 UPDATE:
I've had to revise my recommendation for this game yet again because I just updated my old Jeopardy game again for the new Jeopardy for KINDLE Fire version available) in the apps store on the KINDLE. I can no longer recommend this game to Kindle Fire users (the title of my previous review was ALL KINDLE users should get this app...):

1. In the newest format, the question box is often too small to show the entire "answer;" thus, many times you can't answer the question because vital information is in the last line which you can't see!
2. I got a couple of questions wrong when I had actually pushed the correct answer button; for example, the answer in a Final Jeopardy question was something like, "the greatest migration of human beings occurred between 195x and 19xx between these two countries (sorry I just don't recall the exact dates). I chose North Korea and South Korea. I got the reply "you did not respond correctly. The correct answer is What is North and South Korea?!!
3. This newest version still hasn't fixed the Stats Box and still doesn't keep the stats from ALL previous games.
4. Jeopardy needs to fix its grammar! I got this reply to another question: Who ARE Stevie Wonder?

I've downgraded the stars from 4 to 1.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
I like this app very much, but I almost didn't buy it because of two specific complaints made by reviewers. For those of us with a KINDLE FIRE 8.9 HD, the two most common issues appear to be:

1. The technical glitch of the timer bar covering the question.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed September 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
As a huge Jeopardy fan (including having tried out for the college tournament several years ago), I was pretty disappointed in this app because the answers are MULTIPLE CHOICE. This takes out much of the difficulty that Jeopardy is known for as you essentially have a 33.3% chance of getting a question correct just by guessing. Thus, I feel like I'm playing something more akin to Who Wants to be a Millionaire rather than classic Jeopardy.

However, I didn't have any problems with the interface itself (freezing, etc) as other people did on my KFire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timer covers question! December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
I downloaded this game, and much to my dismay, it is impossible to play because the timer bar is covering the question! This is on a 8.9" Kindle Fire.

Edit- 10/23/13 I recently noticed that the problem I mentioned before has been fixed. I am changing my review from one star to reflect this.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not freezing up, just needs some debugging. September 7, 2012
By cls112
Verified Purchase
The problem isn't that the game freezes after the first round, its that the $1000 clues don't show up on te board. Tap in the space for it and the clue appears. It would be nice if the developers fixed this, but now you know.

1.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed! December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Was so excited to get this app since I love Jeopardy but the timer bar completely covers the question so it is completely unplayable on my new Kindle Fire HD. How do you get your money back?

2.0 out of 5 stars Is There A Patch? April 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
Once I downloaded the app, I couldn't wait to play it. I was extremely disappointed when the screen came up. The timer bar ran across the entire screen preventing me from playing the game properly.
