Quick Look: The classic word game played by kids with pencil and paper is now available on the Roku. This version lets you pick from 10 word categories (General, Geography, Celebrities, Politics, and 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15+ letter words). You can also select a skill level from Novice (10 body parts) to Hard (4 body parts).
As with the original Hang Man game, you're shown a line for each letter in the word or phrase you're trying to solve. Select a letter - if that letter is in the word or phrase, it will appear in the proper location. If you picked wrong, a body part is placed in the hangman's noose. Winners are awarded with the sound of applause. There is no scoring and no keeping track of the number of wins - if you want to play against one another, you'll have to track wins and losses the old-fashioned way, with pen and paper.
