The popular Windows Phone title Wheel of Wealth has been updated for Windows Phone 8. The Wheel of Fortune-styled game recently launched on Windows 8, but only sported an online mode. We've seen Wheel of Wealth disappear from the Windows Phone Store, only to reappear again, but it's good to see the developer continuing to support the platform.
So what's new in version 2.5? The game is taking advantage of new features introduced in Windows Phone 8, including multiple sized Live Tiles. If you're an avid player and wish to keep on top of notifications and gameplay, Wheel of Wealth also supports lock screen notifications. The game has had its UI revamped to better reflect Windows Phone elements.
We've been informed that future plans involved in-app purchases, which will provide consumers with the opportunity to play the game without advertising. Windows Phone 7 users will not be left in the dark as compatible features will also make their way to those who are sticking with previous generation hardware (or new low-end Windows Phones).
