This is the next generation of the classical Hangman game on the iPhone.
In real animated execution scenarios you can help Dan Deadman to stay alive.
Based on the classical word guessing Hangman game, your challenge is to find the right letters. If you fail the Hangman will proceed to execute Dan Deadman.

Dan Deadman vs. Hangman offers:

  • 2 animated execution scenarios (Guillotine, Electrical chair)
  • Four languages – American English, German, French and Spanish (also to train your language capabilities)
  • More than 2000 search words
  • 27 word lists including super long words, proverbs, celebrities, int. geography and many more
  • Possibility to get help by the new tip function
  • Notes and anecdotes on search words
  • A detailed game statistics
  • 2 player mode: Challenge a partner with your own search words or sentences


  1. Excellent game to play either with yourself or with others in a party
  2. Learn some background behind certain names of celebrities!
  3. See cool animation of executions


  1. Only 2 types of execution – Developers do add more! LOL
  2. No random option – Surprise Us!
  3. More accidental death like final destination types!

Overall the game is a decent replica of a very old school word guessing games that are timeless and classic with a deathly twist but need more variety of death to keep me entertained. I do realize the developer did include a slight differences in the method of “surviving” the hangman at different stages of “execution” which is nice.

To me this is a 3.5 stars out of 5 stars which is above average for it’s functional interface & fun game play with a deadly twist.
