Hangman Pro is a colorful, educational, non-violent word-guessing game, with dozens and dozens of built-in categories of words, unlimited custom word lists, hinting, digitized sounds, speech synthesis, timed or relaxed games, photo words, custom menus, a little bit of cultural literacy and a whole lot of fun for the whole family.
