Sure, it's Hangman, but with a twist. And a girl. Hey!
Hangman's an easy game to play. I'm sure that even a few chimpanzees out there would get the idea to solve a word puzzle before their hangman is drawn completely. Sure, they wouldn't be able to convey the answer so easily, but I was just describing how easy the game would be to get into. And it's with this that Centerscore has done wondrous work with their take on the legend with Amy's Hangman, a game that combines a simple interface with a beautiful digital beauty and additional touches that add personality and replayability to the game.
First off, Centerscore has used Amy mainly as a personality for the game, wearing different costumes during holidays and encouraging you to continue on with the puzzles. They aren't extravagantly hard, and they follow the Hangman formula perfectly. The game itself is played out kinda like it was on a notepad, complete with simple hand drawings and prompts to move you ahead. You can even sacrifice a couple of limbs to get a hint of the puzzle if you want to go that route. It's easy to follow and yet feels addictively fresh.
Then you've got the wide variety of Hangman puzzles to solve. The game already has quite a few available, mainly dealing with movies, but you can also download new ones from Centerscore for only the cost of a typical download fee, marking new territory for the game. It really heights its replayability this way and remains an utter delight, especially for multiple players.
I am elated at how quickly I became addicted to Amy's Hangman. It's fun and surprisingly easy to get into, and you'll be solving puzzles for hours, even if Amy herself isn't your speed. But who wouldn't like her? Hangman haters, I guess, if they exist.
What's Hot: Lots of puzzles to complete, and a terrific format and a lovely host.
What's Not: It is still Hangman at the end of the day.
