One may call it “trouble”, but it is obvious that soft- and hardware industry nowadays is on its top. Development of computer games is the whole story: authors of that element of the industry have already entered their own deathmatch and offer the unbelievable variety of arcades, simulators, quests and strategies and so on. The game we choose should be simple, interesting and exciting at the same time. It is difficult to invent something like that, isn’t it? So the only way out for some authors is to look behind, to the past, and to create remakes or PC-versions of old famous games. They are certainly the best, they remind us of our youth, they remind us of ourselves, they are just the best to play and relax.
Martin’s Hangman can be called the most successful PC-version of such game. It’s logical enough, it’s very simple even for computer amateurs and it has everything necessary to play Hangman without difficulties and troubleshooting, even if you possess a weak PC with an old operational system. That game has five categories in which to play (General Words, Computer Terms, Computer Games, Metal Bands and Horror Films). The aim of a player is to guess the word by pressing buttons on his keyboard before he will be hanged (if you’ve ever played the real Hangman, you know, what I mean: every wrong letter will create the next part of the hangman’s body). It’s quite interesting to practice English by guessing words. The only disadvantage of the game that in category “General Words” the first one is always the same, and it is “Interface”.
