Video Manual: How to Use the Hangman. App

How does it Work?

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.

Purchase more wordlists to play with from within the app.

Define a word if you don't understand it, and help yourself or your children learn new words.

Keep track of your wins / losses, and how many games you've played and earn achievements with Game Center.

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.

    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

    Good Game!

    This hangman game is really good in my opinion. It's one of those game that you should play with your friend when you are bored in a car. Even if you are not in that case it's just a good game to play. I understand that some people don't like hangman in general but it has very good quality! Good Game!

    I have played this game with my brother for about half an hour now. Is the quality great? No, not in the least. Would the game be fun on my own? No, I’d rather slather myself in butter. But the look on my brothers face when I typed in random letters? Priceless. 11/10, my crops are watered and my skin is clear ✨

    Great game

    Works well and does what it says it does. I’d suggest that the people complaining here about an incorrect word definition or the logo or the words used would complain about something regardless of the relevance. It’s a free game, it works and you can get rid of the ads for a buck.

    The words can be a bit hard even your on easy mode, but other than that, It’s perfect

  • By SomeDudeOnline

    Odd rating system

    This is a great app but just a heads up on the rating system, "easy" is easy because of how many guesses you get. Not because of the difficulty of the word. I've been playing easy and haven't lost but some words are really hard to get, technetium?

  • By Angziety

    Great game, 1 flaw

    Certain phrases end up being too long for the screen to handle (on the 6+). I play in portrait mode. Recommend stacking the words/phrases instead of putting it all on one line. Otherwise it's a great game. I like the amount of guesses you get per level.

  • By Slkchina

    Good, but I have a suggestion

    I teach esl and it would be great to be able to create our own word lists instead of having to enter the words by hand. In Heads Up, you can buy blank decks for 99 cents and I would love the same option.

  • By MyGrainMama

    Perfect score until...

    The J doesn’t work. I was humming along, enjoying a perfect score until I needed to spell jersey. Not possible without a J. Hope it gets fixed soon because the game was fun until then.

    These are my complaints

    I’m only writing a review about what’s bad so you can look at other reviews for what’s good. Anyways, I don’t like how if you click easy mode it gives you hard words... I also don’t like the noises it makes if I click it to me it’s annoying. It’s also pretty boring you don’t win anything like coins like in most games. There is better hangman’s, back to the coins. If they added coins to when you win you could use it on maybe a subject for the word like if you get furniture as the subject then you have to try and guess a pice of furniture. I also think you could upgrade the stand that you hang from and make it cooler and maybe you could add things at the bottom of it and if you lose you would fall on/in the thing. Or if you won you would jump down and be safe. It’s a good and bad app. These are reasons I Don’t recommend having it so if you think it’s good and you thing my review is bad, read what I just said. It will only be 2 stars for my complaints and if there were no positives.

    Please read.

    The design is nice and it works well, but the ‘difficulty’ has some problems. I changed the difficulty expecting more difficult WORDS, but that wasn’t the case. It only draws more of the stick man for more difficulty. I win every single time and this needs to be fixed because I’m getting very bored.

    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.

    Really hard words on easy level.

    When I saw my sister playing this game it looked fun and easy. I downloaded it to play with my daughter, of course u tested the single player first. I clicked the easy level but it gave me hard words for example, courtesies, Subroutine, hyphenating etc... I just thought that was really hard for the easy mode. My daughter likes winning (everybody does I think) but i can’t even guess the words. I am not the smartest but I’m Just trying to say maybe make your easy level actually easy. Thank you.

    Good Mechanics, Bad Game

    The mechanics works well and all the technical aspects are very good, but the words they have are so obscure and not even common words! I played on the EASY setting and selected colors as the category and one word came up as puce! the other word was amber which is a color but in my opinion shouldn’t be in the easy setting its not as common. basically DONT get this game unless you know a vast amount of obscure words or you are strictly playing two player (putting in your own words).
