Macgamestore.com and Ludia have announced the release of The Price is Right and Hell's Kitchen for the Mac, two new casual games for the Mac based on television shows. Both are priced at US$19.95.
Bob Barker (or Drew Carey) is about all that's missing to make this just like the game show.The Price Is Right is based on the popular game show, in which players try to guess the right price and succeed at different pricing game challenges like Plinko, Cliff Hangers and Punch-a-Bunch, then spin the Big Wheel for a chance at big prizes and a big payoff.
The Price is Right also features a party mode that lets up to four players compete against each other, and sports theme music, announcer audio and game sounds. As players win they collect achievements they can review in a personal trophy room.
Hell's Kitchen is based on the reality show featuring renowned celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. You experience the show's heated atmosphere as you go through a culinary bootcamp, preparing and serving meals. Each meal is scored by Ramsay.
The game features a 3D model of Gordon Ramsay who rates and comments on your performance, and touts a "career calendar" style of gameplay. There are 35 Gordon Ramsay recipes from the TV show to unlock as you proceed through the game; you can print them out and try them yourself.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later and a G4 or better, 512MB RAM and 32MB VRAM.
