I like everything about this game, except for the fact that I have to pick a category. I think it should be completely open to anything. Also, it's weird, in the Very Hard category, I had the word "possible", but at the Medium level I had crazy 12-letter words that I'd never heard of. Either way, it's still a great way to pass time and I can play it with my daughters, which is nice.

If you remember when you played hangman on a piece of paper with your father, you will love it. Five levels of difficulty, six categories of words (animals, common words, food, human body, office and business; transport and vehicle). I took one star off because it goes through only eight steps of execution (two for the gallows and six for the hanged) , and I would sadistically prefer a slower process, maybe ten or eleven steps. I also would like a better and more humorous image of the hanged unfortunate one. But it is all minor in comparison with the joy of feeling yourself a child again, this time playing it hi-tech style with your own kids.
Edited later: (some reviewers correctly pointed out that when you got the word correctly, the game does not give you a feeling of satisfaction by showing a completed word, instead, you immediately see a half screen that covers the word and a question whether you want to play again. It is idiotic on the part of the software creators and they should fix the problem ASAP. Actually I have to take another star for this reason, but I will keep four for mentioned above nostalgic feelings).

The game is played like traditional hangman-try to guess the correct word, for each wrong letter guessed a limb is added until the man is hung. The little man is unimaginative and looks the same every time. The words that you guess are divided in to easy - hard levels and into categories- animals, transportation, etc. There is very little difference between the levels and the categories are very broad. For example, the animals category uses every obscure dinosaur name. It kind of takes the fun away when the word in question isn't really something you recognize even if you happen to guess it. Additionally, when you do get the word correct the screen flashes to a box that reads," would you like to play again?". You never get to read the finished word, the box pops up as you guess the last correct letter. This simple game could be lots more fun and better thought through. Try again, Jared!

I had hoped for a good hangman game when I got this, but that was not the case. First, the guy you are hanging looks REALLY stupid. Also, you are hung after fewer missed letters than the classic game. Another weird thing is the words in the category are not always in the category that they should be, and it frequently repeats words. I would return it, but it did give me a hangman game, but it is definitely the LCD. If I could go back to before I bought this, I would not have made the purchase.

I was very pleased to see this game available on my Kindle. The easy puzzels are very easy and do get harder as you choose which level you wish to play. I do look forward to other games like Wheel of Fortune which came from Hangman plus added attractions, that will give us more challenges. Games come with easy to follow instructions for those not familiar with game and like earlier said, different levels of difficulty.

I have always loved playing hangman since I was a child. I now play hangman with my granddaughter, who is six, so it was a no brainer to purchase this game. I have played it with my granddaughter and she loves it too. I like the many levels from very easy to challenging. The hangman graphics are great and it's fun to see the progression of the hangman.

My granddaughter loves to play board games with me and this is another game we can play together with the added excitement for her that she can play it on my kindle either with me or by herself.

Only minor gripe is you can't see the word if you've won. It seems it should not matter, but when you are playing with a child, you can't show them the right answer. If you lose, the right answer appears in small text, you have to look for it. It would be better if you saw the right answer where the blanks were.

It may be a minor point, but you don't get to have the satisfaction (if you win) of seeing your correct answer, with final state of your character (often I might get three good guesses in a row with my last chance).

I was very disappointed in this game. In my opinion, it isn't like the real hangman game on paper at all. The original hangman game allows the players to interact by giving clues to the guesser. This game does not give clues regarding the word other than giving one letter to the guesser- how boring! In addition, it is virtually impossible to guess the word without asking for a "clue"- which ends up being a letter and defeats the whole spirit of the game. Also, the words that are to be found are very unusual which makes the guessing even harder. There isn't challenge in this game, there is only frustration! I want my 99cents back!
