Hangman is a simple word game where you attempt to discover a secret word by guessing one letter at a time. Each time you guess a letter which does not appear in the word, the hangman picture is drawn further. You must discover the word before he is hanged.

Each time you click on a letter the computer will either display the letter where it appears in the word or draw more of the hangman. You can choose the length of the word that the computer will select with the slider. Press "start" to have the computer choose a new word.

The game can be played in 23 languages.
