Space Hangman by Paul Prange is a fun app that puts a new twist on the classic game of “hangman.” Featuring four different languages, this app could potentially even be used to help learn another language.

Features:

Anyone who really loves playing classic hangman will probably also really enjoy this app. As mentioned previously, Space Hangman features four different languages (English, French, German, and Dutch), along with several different difficulty levels to choose from.

Just like in traditional hangman, each incorrectly guessed letter results in part of the gallows being drawn; this progresses on to parts of the space robot (the victim of the hangings) being added until he is complete. At this point, the game is over (just like in traditional hangman).

Correctly getting a word right, however, rewards players with points that can be displayed on the app’s leader boards in the iOS Game Center. Other features in Space Hangman include optional background music, and options to get help when solving for a word. Users can also choose to have words come from a certain set/theme.

Appearance and Layout:

The appearance of Space Hangman was by far my favorite part of the app. Perfectly cartoonish in design, the app’s graphics are fun, and even though they are certainly kid-friendly, they’re also aesthetically mature enough to please adults too.

The little details put into the design of Space Hangman are all really appreciated and make for an obviously well thought-out app. An example of this is that on the bottom left there is a small button that shows a pause menu with the possibility to end the game and return to the menu. Furthermore, getting around the app is wonderfully simple—to the point that it could easily be done in a different language (if desired).

The home menu is simple and straightforward and allows for quick access to all the specialized user setting options mentioned among the “features” of the app.

Value:

Space Hangman is available through the iTunes Store for $0.99. This relatively minimal fee will probably be seen as worth it for anyone who wishes to use the app to help him/her study one of its featured languages in a fun way.

Additionally, this app might be seen as a good investment for parents looking for good, child-friendly apps to entertain their kids. They will benefit from analyzing possible words that can fit and how certain letters group in common combinations. At the same time, however, we wonder if iOS users will be interested in paying for a digital version of hangman (no matter how cool the graphics are) because of the already available free app versions of this classic game.
