Well, pretty much every mobile platform has a few, so why not. Windows 8.1 has its share of hangman games, but boy, this one in particularly is richly designed and very well made.
When the developers ask you to play the best free hangman game for Windows 8 in the description section, they really mean it. Hangman Pro is an attractive implementation of the classic formula, and has found great success on the Windows Store in terms of ratings and downloads.
Before we get to the goodies, here is the official description:
“Relax with a few rounds of this classic word game. This version of Hangman has everything you need, with lots of word categories, one and two player modes, and global leaderboards. Guess both single words and phrases before the hangman drawing is complete!”
The game allows you to play alone or against another human opponent in hot seat mode. Going at it alone, the computer will pick the words you need to guess. In the two player mode, each player selects the word or phrase for the opponent — a welcome addition that adds a level of excitement.
A number of categories are available like animals, food, geography, as well as easy, standard and hard. For two player mode you also get to set the number of rounds you want to play.
The rest of the gameplay mechanics are standard fare. Points are awarded for picking the right letter to solve a word or phrase. Global leaderboards are included in this free game, and the clean, simple visuals are a delight. ARM support is also on offer, making it a must grab for tablet users.
