The general idea
How it came about
During my time studying to get a bachelor degree in web development, I designed and made this amusing take on the hangman game. I always figured these games were not that well made, because I did not really care whether the stick figure in the simple drawings of the game “would die” or not. Therefore, I wanted to make a version in which you actually do not want the figure in the game to die!
You can find a link to the APK on this page, so if you own an Android phone, you can still install it. It does require some trickery though (no viruses, I promise!), but those brave enough to install the game can find some additional info here in order to get it installed. You will also find a link to the landingpage of the game, which is a bit redundant now, but I like the bold visuals, so why not...
If you wish to play the game online, you can do so as well now. I remade the app in React. This was a fine exercise for me, and as a little bonus it bypasses my little disagreement with Google. Please find a link to the online app & the code below.
This version was made in React, using the Context API, Axios (to fetch words from the library hosted on Firebase), Styled Components & React Transition Group elements for a couple of animations which needed extra care and attention in a React setup.
