The N64 iteration of Jeopardy! was the very last title released by GameTek. Much like the system's take on Wheel of Fortune, it suffers from low production values and GameTek's nearing bankruptcy (the studio closed its doors just five months later).

As with Wheel, another edition of Jeopardy! wouldn't be released on a Nintendo console for more than a decade.

Functions

Sub function 0x80014854 would have likely enumerated all of the text for this game. This is ultimately called from two large unreferenced functions, 0x800156e0 and 0x80015ebc.

Hidden Graphics

Jeopardy64 cow.pngJeopardy64 penguin.png

These two creatures do appear in the game, but only through an Easter egg: after playing Final Jeopardy, quit the game to view the credits. After the credits, Alex will come on and say "Let's do it again real soon." and the screen goes black. After several minutes, these two creatures appear for a few seconds and then disappear.
