Hangaroo is a word game based on the famous hangman game. The twist of hangaroo compared to hangman is that instead of hanging a man you hang a kangaroo. Don't worry, no kangaroos were hurt building this game...
Now seriously, the objective of the game is to find out what the missing word is. You do that by trying to guess which letters are in the word. Each time you guess a letter there are two options. If it's right - it's added to the word, and if it's wrong - your man (or kangaroo) is going another step towards it's end.
Hangaroo and other word games are becoming very popular online. Playing these games online is easy for several reasons. First of all you don't have to install anything, you just need a browser. The 2nd reason is that these word games are not like card games where you just shuffle the card package and you can start playing. In word games you usually need to set up the game which could including thinking of words on particular subject, and erasing several letters so that the player can enjoy playing the game. Creating different difficulty levels is also a major thing, when you try building a hangman with a certain difficulty level it can be tough, but when a computer builds such a game, after the program is written, can be a matter of milliseconds.
