Storyline

The Wall is 4 stories high and "can change lives". The game is played by two people together. The first portion of the game is Freefall. Contestants must answer questions before balls complete their free fall down the Wall - correct responses earn prize money (green ball), incorrect answers result in prize money being removed (red ball). This portion of the game results in a total dollar amount, that amount must be positive in order to move forward. The second portion of the game involves one of the two contestants going into isolation. Round two starts with two green balls, and two red balls. The player in isolation answers questions "under stressful situations" to determine the color assigned to the remaining balls. Up to six balls can be earned by answering 3 questions. The dollar amount earned in round one is added to whatever is earned in round 2.

Good Game, Too Much Drama
24 May 2020 | by etes97See all my reviews

I actually like the game and the fact that they seem to gear it towards contestants who are the unsung heroes of the world. I'm not a huge fan of the immense amounts of drama that are added. It's almost more like a reality show at points. When the game ends and the two contestants have to stand there with tears in their eyes and profess their love for each other for 5 minutes before saying what needs to be said, I cringe a little. That whole portion of the show could be rewritten and be more concise so that it still gives has the same "wow" factor with less pain for the at home audience.
