If you have seen this game show on television, I’m sure you have yearned for a chance to try your luck too. I don’t know if you would make it to TV but your iPhone/iPad is ever ready with the Deal or No Deal iOS game.

The gameplay is a complex one but for anyone who has seen some episodes, it won’t be that hard. When the game begins, you have to select one box from a set of 26. Denominations from one to a million dollars are placed randomly in each of them. The chosen box is yours and the goal is to make sure it contains the best amount or to sell it to the banker for the best offer!

Each round requires you to open a certain set of boxes and after that, the banker gives you an offer based on assumptions on how much your box contains. If you open up cheap boxes, the probability of your box having half or a million increases and hence a higher offer. On the other hand, if you open all huge boxes, your offer comes down. Whenever you think you have the best offer, hit deal to walk away with the banker’s money. Sometimes, you’ll be selling a $50 box for a hundred thousand or other times, you are greeted with a loss; you never know and that is the beauty of this game!

After each level, you get the sum of money and also certain tokens. The tokens can be used for boosts or to enter Tournament modes. As usual, tokens can be bought from the store or there are many options to get some for free, as well.

This app is an exact replica of the TV show, with the same gameplay, same stage and even same sound effects. The animations are satisfactory while controls are the simplest. Though an universal app, the game is boxed in on my iPad and I can’t understand why. Addiction isn’t the best virtue for this one, but I think, its surely suited for killing some time.
