Hangman © 1978 Atari, Incorporated.


Hangman features 9 game variations:

1-Player Games: Games 1, 2, 3 and 4 are 1-player games. You compete against the computer. You score one point for every Hangman Word you complete; the computer scores one point for each Hangman Word you can't complete.

* Game 1: One player competes against the computer that uses words from a 1st - 3rd-grade vocabulary.

* Game 2: One player competes against the computer that uses words from a 1st - 6th-grade vocabulary.

* Game 3: Playing with words from a 1st - 9th-grade level, one player competes against the computer.

* Game 4: Words from a 1st-grade through high school vocabulary are used for competition between one player and the computer.

2-Player Computer Games: Games 5, 6, 7 and 8 are 2-player games against the computer. After you select the game vocabulary you want to use, you and your opponent take turns selecting alphabet letters to find the word generated by the computer. Both players together are allowed 11 incorrect selections. When you make a correct letter guess, you receive a consecutive turn. The first player to complete the Hangman Word scores one point and starts the next word. The first player to score five points wins the game.

* Game 5: Two players compete to complete the Hangman Word from a 1st - 3rd-grade vocabulary.

* Game 6: Two players test their word skill with Hangman Words from a 1st - 6th-grade vocabulary.

* Game 7: Words from a 1st - 9th-grade vocabulary are used for competition between two players.

* Game 8: Two players compete using words from a 1st-grade through high school vocabulary.

* Game 9 (2-Player Opponent Games): Now it's your turn to choose the Hangman Word. Instead of playing with a computer word, one player composes the Hangman Word with the Joystick Controller; the opposing player receives eleven guesses to complete the Hangman Word.

SCORING
In 1-player Hangman games, a player is allowed 11 incorrect letters. If the player has not completed the word after 11 incorrect guesses, the player is hanged and the game is lost. You score one point for each game you win; the computer scores one point each time you are hanged.

During two-payer games, 11 incorrect letter selections are also allowed between the two players. The player who completes the last letter in the word receives one point. The first player to score five points wins the game.
