Hangman is fun on paper, but playing an electronic version is even more fun! It’s especially good for the car.

The game has a small LCD screen with the man, the letters remaining, and the blanks for the word. The sound can be muted for when those around you are getting annoyed with the sounds. The High Score button shows you the all time high score, which is fun for seeing how well you are doing.

The game has quite a few options. Upon starting a new game, you first select the game type. Game 1 is standard Hangman. Game 2 is more difficult because the blanks are filled in using the order you selected the letters. So basically it’s scrambled as you solve it. Next, you select skill level. Skill level 1 allows you to choose the category and amount of letters in the word. Skill level 2 allows you to choose the amount of blanks, but the category is random. It is shown as the game starts. Skill level 3 lets you choose the amount of blanks, but the category is random and is not shown. Of course, this makes it much more challenging.

Possible categories are animals, beach, city, grocery, leisure, party, music, school, sports, and Wild West. You can choose between 3 and 7 blanks in the word.

Points are awarded based on difficulty of the word and tries it took to solve it.

This game can keep you entertained for hours on end. It’s great for car trips, or even just sitting around at home.
