Wish you could leverage your scores

Great little app, fun and addictive. I do wish if you lost a turn, you could use your points for an additional guess or a cumulative balance of turns not used for credits. Or even to go back a much higher level than 25. But still a good app to download. Thanks!

Pretty good

I like the format, not just a word but possibly multiple words or a phrase. It adds more possibilities and makes it more about knowledge and skill than luck.
I wish more games of Hangman were in this game. I have done all of them multiple times, as this makes a quick break or time filler when waiting, with few resources (battery) used.
I would, however, really like to have a setting so that I can permanently mute the sounds and music. I have missed a lot of calls and messages, forgetting to turn the sound on again after playing.
So, overall good. And few annoying ads—also a bonus.

Never ending fun

I like the many categories of answers and it sure is addictive. One complaint. It only happened once, but I got stumped on a puzzle and it sent me all the way back to the beginning with the very easy puzzles. Still - get it!
