### Hanged - Simple Hangman game.

This is what I've come up with in the past hour.

I'm going to add a random word list, a score board, and some more graphics and sounds. Maybe release it on a game site as a simple hangman game, since a search on macgamefiles.com finds no free hang man game for mac os X. (You could find a game called 'HangThis', but thats just a crappy hang man game written in java by me when I was high school.) This one will be... better.

Okay I've finished this. Has saved high score and a word list generated by (http://www.wordlistgenerator.net/)

I've used sounds from supershapes.love, whose sounds are from( http://forum.freegamedev.net/index.php?t=msg&th=2285) so thanks qubodup.

(if you delete list.txt in the .love then you don't need to attribute...)

Wow. I'm bad at hangman. I wonder what that says about me. Oooh boy.

Anyway, great job converting hangman to digital form. It'd be cool to see some sort of multiplayer via LUBE.

Too bad it isn't my native language, this makes sure I FAIL! I didn't even see -ednesda- :
And, more important I don't know the tactics, in my native language you almost always win if you start with all the vowels.

Find one vowel first, once you found one find a consonant, e.g, s, r, t, which are quite common ones.
Good luck when a new and bigger dictionary is implemented

New Game Design for a multiplayer version. I'm kinda clueless about networking though. :/ I'll poke some holes in the dark and see what I come up with.

Code: Select all

OnLaunch:
OptionSinglePlayer -- See Current Hanged
OptionMultiPlayer:
MultiplayerScreen:
OptionHotseat -- Set word screen, then hangman screen. Rinse and repeat
OptionConnectToServer --	Joins server. Players on a server alternate deciding words.
Each round, a random player 'Executioner' types a word
Word has to be in dictionary.
Dictionary will be suitably large. (Hopefully 3000+ words)
He cannot chat to other players.

Every other player tries to guess the word. They all have access to
alphabet buttons.  Everyone in total has only 10 tries. Each letter guessed
rewards or punishes player who guessed it. Guessing players can chat
to each other. If word guessed every guessing player gets points.

If Man dies then 'executioner' gets points. The more difficult the word the
less points for 'executioner'. There is a time limit.

Feel free to ask me, I don't mind helping. (though I should continue on LovelyBigPlanet, but I can't decide on the format)
