1. Crazy Hangman
Crazy Hangman is a free hangman game for Windows 8. When you run the game, you will be presented with an interface which allows you to play the game. You will be presented with blanks on your screen, and letters below those blanks. Simply click on the letter that you think will fit into those blanks. If you select a wrong letter, it will be counted as a wrong attempt and the hangman will be drawn at the right side of the screen in steps. First the base, then the stand, then the head, the body and finally the arms. To guess each letter, you get 30 seconds. If you don’t guess within that time, it’s counted as a fault and the hangman will be drawn (again, in steps). The game is absolutely fun to play!

The name of the app is aptly titled Hangman. The game is of course a Hangman game, and when you launch it, you will be asked to select the difficulty level and the theme of the game. The game offers 4 themes- standard, jungle, robot and spooky. In the above screenshot, I have selected the spooky theme. The dashes are present at the top and you have to guess the word by clicking on letters below. Failure to select the correct word will result in the hangman being drawn in steps. The game is pretty difficult even on easy mode, as you can see in the above screenshot, I had selected the easy difficulty level and I got a word like Superfluous. Luckily for me, I was able to guess the word correctly and win the game! If you love challenging games, this game is meant for you!
