RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
Hangman is a guessing game for one person. It takes a word from the huge built-in database (over 1000 words in 6 categories) and represents it by a row of dashes, giving the number of letters. The user picks letters from the alphabet. If the letter occurs in the word, this letter is written in all its correct positions. If the letter does not occur in the word, the application draws one element of the Hangman diagram. The player wins one round of the game, when he completes the word, and loses, when the diagram is completed.
