Review (Electron User)
WELL, they did it with Battleships, Gomuku, Othello and even Chess. So why shouldn't they put a really professional version of Hangman on the Electron?
IJK Software have taken this pencil and paper game and turned it into a highly enjoyable video pastime which can be enjoyed by all the family - something rare in video games today. The graphics are excellent, especially the hanging man, and also colourful. It all adds to the enjoyment of the game. They have gone into great detail with the victim. He blinks, smiles and clicks his fingers. And if you take too long in contemplating your next choice of letter he will give you quite a surprise.
Foreseeing the time when you have learned all the names in each category, there is a section where you can include words of your own choice.
All in all, a simple, good value down-to-earth game and a refreshing change from a screenful of laserbolts and gore.
