Jeopardy! is a game based on the famous game show of the same name. The player is asked questions and must answer correctly to gain money. Whoever has the most amount of money wins the game. For a Sega Genesis port, it does its job.

Just like all the other versions of Jeopardy!, this game uses the Jeopardy theme, and it's a pretty catchy version, too. Unfortunately, there's only two songs in the entire game; the Jeopardy! theme and the Final Jeopardy theme. Michelle Simon, main composer of Park Place Productions arranged the music. Simon said that she had to learn the songs by ear and that there was no sheet music available at the time. Not only does the game have credits, but the manual does, too. Both, the Deluxe Edition and Sports Edition have the same exact two songs, so they have been redirected to this page. The game uses GEMS' sound engine.

The title music was later stolen and used in the unlicensed Genesis game Super Mario World 64.

In the regular version of the game's instruction booklet, Michelle Simon (music) and Curt Toumanian's (art) roles were switched. This was fixed in other versions of the game's manual. (See Sports Edition).
