KHANGMAN(6) KHangMan User's Manual KHANGMAN(6)


khangman - The classical hangman game by KDE


KHangMan is a game based on the well known hangman game. It is aimed for children 6 and above. It has several word categories like Animals, Clothing, Computers, Currencies and more.

A word is picked at random and the letters are hidden. You must guess the word by trying one letter after another. Each time you guess a wrong letter, part of a picture of a hangman is drawn. You must guess the word before getting hanged! You have 10 tries.

This application is part of the KDE Edutainment module.
