Opening to the first page of Vocabulary Builder with Hangman you simply pick a Word Group (a specific category), or Random Group (the game picks the category), Or All Words, where you are given words from all 32 groups which include 4,532 words. With each group, the number of words is shown next to them, as well as the amount of hangman games that have been won.
Tap the arrow and it takes you to a page with an additional 25 groups that instead of just showing the category you are playing, have a bit of a prompt. So, instead of “Countries” showing as the category, it would say something like “a country”. On this page will will also find Random Group and All Words, with a total of 8,232 words. As in any hangman game there are blanks provided for the word you are to find. Looking at the number of letters gives a hint. Once you pick a letter it is eliminated from your choices.
At the end of each game, you are taken to a page with three options: return to the categories, go to the next word, or tap on the books with a search symbol and learn more about the word. This last option takes you to the internet which provides a selection of pages to click on, such as Wikipedia, dictionaries, etc. Since I didn't always recognize some of the words this was a nice option and an educational plus!
I definitely had fun and learned some things along the way!
