Hangman is based on the popular word guessing game by the same name. The player guesses letters in order to uncover the hidden word. But be careful, you only have a few guesses before you're hanged!

Unlike other versions of Hangman, this one gives the player a few more guesses by building up the gallows as the player guesses, instead of having them pre-built.

Two player mode allows you and a friend to play. One person enters a word and the other tries to guess it.

Hangman includes small, unobtrusive ads to help keep it free. Advertising can be removed for a small one-time fee. Even if you remove Hangman and download it again in the future you can restore your purchases for no extra cost and remove advertising again.

Hangman will connect to the internet once, each time the game is run, in order to download it's advert, which is very very small and will take less than a second. Hangman will also need internet access if you choose to "define a word". Defining words is entirely optional.

Irritated Support Staff

I am enjoying this game, but a couple words have appeared that the app's dictionary nor Merriam-Webster could define. When I reached out to support they were very frustrated as if it were such an inconvenience and stupid question to ask. The second time they reiterated that they had given me an answer regarding a similar word and perhaps I should've known. I was also told to try an easier level or less challenging word list. I suggested if they offer a definition to their words they should be sure all their words are defined.


Decade where all people are sensitive of little things

Wow, I can't believe im reading several reviews about the icon. Before u comment about the "icon" and ur suicidal depression, make sure u research first. This is an old game! This was invented even before apps & gadgets were born. Stupidity at its best.

How ironic that this got more bashing about suicide than the book "me before u". It was made into movie when it was clearly about letting people suicide & nobody even batted an eye.



I love this game tho the words are very hard to guess without many hints.

I will say... To people being overly sensitive about the logo. Read up on it, hangman, is an ooooooold game and you need to grow up. Death, hanging, suicide are all real and pretending like they are not isn't going to protect anybody from seeing or experiencing it. Grow up or get off the internet
