HangARoo is a puzzle game based on the popular Hangman concept. There's a kangaroo with a noose around its neck, and a title, name or phrase the player has to guess. To complete the phrase, the player must choose letters from the alphabet: if the letter is in the phrase to guess, then all occurrences of this letter are highlighted. But if the letter is not within the phrase, you're one step closer to game over - if four mistakes are made, the kangaroo hangs!

After guessing a phrase, the player is given a new one to solve, and his mistake count is reset. If 10 phrases are successfully guessed, the player wins, and the kangaroo is freed.
