You should be able to enter the letters in any order.
You should have more words.
The last letter should already be displayed too.

After typing the last letter I need to type another letter to get the win message.
After winning or losing, I have to refresh the page to play again.

Sorry about it being a little rushed. I have school in about a day so I wanted it to be done today so I can spend the sunday doing somthing else. I should call it my 12 hr entry. lol

Also having to press another letter to get the win message is a bug. I designed it so you have to wait until the counter gets to 0 to find out if you won or not.

Without the spoiler, it was really hard, but when I knew the word, I never lost (thanks to ten-finger-typing). I wish to have a "restart"-button (or is there any and I just didn't saw it?) because it disturbs always having to refresh the browser.

I had some odd problem getting it to recognize it was typing. I was able to eventually get it to work by clicking away and then back on the flash window, which cost a few seconds.

Given how hard it is, it'd be nice to have a 'Try Again' button that generates a new word.

No way to understand what was going on at first. Barely read the instructions before I lost for some reason. No in game reset means I have to refresh the page. Text is a little too thin to see it clearly quickly. Hangman out of the way in a corner makes it difficult to keep track of. Not fun.

Challenging, and for a text-based game I rather liked the graphics! Thanks for putting this together.

Nice game, good idea and use of theme! I featured it in my LD27 compilation series if you'd like to check it out!

The concept of speed hangman is a cool idea, but I do wish this was more fleshed out and better executed.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
