You remember playing hangman as a child? Ever wish there were a version of Hangman for iPhone? Now there is, as iThinkDiff has re-released its Hangman Pro game as the Hangman 2.0 Vocabulary Building Game, a move designed to emphasize the game’s educational aspects and help showcase its many benefits compared to other, more basic, hangman apps and the traditional pen-and-paper hangman game.
The newest version of the Hangman 2.0 Vocabulary Building Game is designed to do more than help users whittle away the time while standing in line. Instead, it’s designed as a way to learn new vocabulary words and improve spelling – in addition to being fun.
Vocabulary words provided in this version have been significantly upgraded; categories now include words for specific tests (such as the SAT, TOEFL, and IELTS) and specific fields of endeavor (such as science, math, business, and medicine). The online multiplayer mode – a key feature which sets the Hangman 2.0 Vocabulary Building Game apart from its competitors – has been revamped to make playing with friends easier and to allow users to rank on the Games Center leaderboard for specific categories of words.
Keeping the emphasis on study, a new feature has been added which lets users look up words in a dictionary after each round and bookmark them for later study. With the re-release of the Hangman 2.0 Vocabulary Building Game, iThinkDiff continues its tradition of producing educational and entertaining study aides.
