This is version of the classic letter guessing game hangman. You are shown a set of blank letters and have to guess what the word is.
You guess by picking letters and seeing if they are in the word. However if you pick a letter that is not in the word a man is slowly drawn. With each wrong letter guess the man is drawn more and more. When the man is finished he is hung and the game is lost. The vowels appear on the left and the consonants on the right. As with other games you can choose the content you want to practice spelling first and then you are show one of ten possible words. There is a countdown timer than runs down slowly at first but then more and more quickly.
There is also an option to review the vocabulary items. At the first screen, if you click on the ‘Review’ button, then you can select any set of content and scroll through to see each image and see how it is spelt. It is quite hard to learn how to spell a word just from guessing letters and so I think that it would be a good idea to review the items from a set before trying the game.
