Status: Lost

Developed by Ludia Inc. and published by Ubisoft Entertainment, The $1,000,000 Pyramid was released for the Wii on March 8th, 2011. [1]

The $1,000,000 Pyramid is based on the U.S. game show Pyramid. The gameplay consists of two player teams—one celebrity and one regular contestant— taking turns giving each other clues to words within one of six categories without saying the answer out loud.

The video game adaptation is heavily based on the 2002 iteration of the show, with the exception of the title, which came from a failed revival of the show in 2009.

Since the game wasn't popular, few reviews can be found. [2] However, of the review sites that have a listing, people have noted that some screenshots from the game had a noticeably different color scheme and design than what was released.[3]

Information

In August 2020, a new screenshot of the game surfaced online showing the game with a different color scheme. In addition, the logo in the screenshot was a recreation of the 2002 logo instead of the released game's logo.

While the existence of the early version of the game has been confirmed, no rom or disc of the original version of the game has been found.
