Ultimate Hangman is a must have hangman game with 4 awesome themes (Doodle Hangman, Chillin' Chalk, Christmas Snowman and Flower Power), 11 great songs and 73 word categories including 7 random modes. There is also 2 player mode so you can enter your own words and play with a friend!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the hangman drawing came alive? That is just what happens in our Doodle Hangman theme. It has multiple animations per sequence so you never know what he will do next. Special escape animations occurs if you guess word when on ninth letter. Chillin' Chalk is our school house chalkboard theme where you get to play in landscape mode. Christmas Snowman has a snowman that disappears as wrong letters are chosen and Flower Power has flowers with parts that fly away. These last 2 themes provide for relaxing hangman play without the violence. :)

Ultimate Hangman Review
Animated characters add a bit of a twist to this otherwise fairly typical hangman game. Game starts by selecting a group of words by category (vocabulary, sports, countries, etc). There's an option to make up custom word lists. Background music is relaxing, without loud or obnoxious sound effects during gameplay.
Game proceeds through each word in the category (new condemned character with each word), building onto your score with each successful word completion. Game ends when you fail to complete a word successfully (hangman does his job), with score reset to zero. No apparent way to save a game in progress.
If your goal is a high score, forget the notion of playing a short, leisurely, game. It would take a long time, a lot of words, to exceed even the lowest score already on the high score list (perhaps hundreds of words to best the #1 score). Would be nicer to have a blank high score list, allowing competition against myself at my own pace.
A pleasant game overall. If you enjoy hangman games, you likely won't be disappointed. Mac OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion compatible.
Great hangman implementation
I really enjoy this, two things would make it even better.
1) Use a dictionary, and give credit for words that are say one letter off (food, fool)
2) Give me some sort of "atta boy" face when I get the word right. ;)
This is just too much fun to be so good for your brain
Greatest Hangman game I ever played…it has it all-works your brain, add in the medicine of laughter and ease of use to take a quick mental health break
