Hang Man is a single-player, shareware, implementation of the classic pen and pencil game.

The player has to guess a mystery word letter by letter and for every incorrect guess a part of the hanged man is added to the screen, when the man is complete the game is over and the game is lost. The shareware version has three levels of difficulty and a limited number of words while the registered version has options to create custom word lists.

The game is entirely mouse controlled and plays in a fixed window.
