Remember the classic hangman? Well, kiss it goodbye! -- With Hangman ⓇⓈⓈ you play with real-time news ;) Every game you play is always new!
Hangman ⓇⓈⓈ automatically downloads for you the latest top news from Internet. When you play at the easy level you have to figure out one word from a random news article title. At the medium, hard, and expert levels respectively two, three, and four words
Hangman ⓇⓈⓈ is Hangman + Point System, Runs, and Online Leaderboards. Discover the next evolution of Hangman with amazing graphics, animations, and ease of use. This is a Hangman like one you have never experienced before ;)
To the classic Hangman, we added:
=> A smart point system, wherein your score is based on 1) the value of each number multiplied (at the time of its match) by a multiplier that decreases in time and 2) the value of letter multiplied (at the time of its completion) by the decreasing multiplier
=> Thanks to Game Center & OpenFeint, you can now rank and compare Hangman ⓇⓈⓈ scores and achievements against friends and strangers
=> Hangman ⓇⓈⓈ also counts the runs, that is, each uninterrupted sequence of games won, and adds them to the online leaderboards
=> You have a number of hints to help you play (more at the easy, less at the hard level)
You gain access to medium level after you win the easy level 5 times consecutively. This also applies for the higher levels
What's New in Version 4.2
Fun twist on Hangman
What a fun little twist on Hangman: don't just guess the word based on a category, guess it based on the news headline that it's a part of. Knowing something about current events does help! The idea is great. In the game itself, it's not always perfect because some of the headlines (which are pulled in via news organization feeds) contain proper names or localized spellings that can cause confusion. (For example, "colour" versus "color.") Other than that, though, this is one nifty little game!
Lots of fun and informarive
This game is fun way to keep up on at least some current events. Being able to go to the news article if you're interested in knowing more is a great feature. My only complaint is when the missing words are someone's name; especially when it is a person with a difficult name of foreign origin.
Very Clever Hangman Game—Separates Itself from the Pack!
What a clever twist! Highly recommend this Hangman game for using Current Affairs Headlines as the Key to its "Word" Generator! Perfect for keeping the game fresh & pertinent. Perfect for anyone using it as an English as a 2nd Language test. Pure countdown fun for strategizing to win the game. Excellent concept that separates itself from hundreds of other such Apps!
