Well, I just wasted an hour or more on this little game so I guess it qualifies as a "TimeWaster". It's just a version of the old game Hangman, but with a funny twist. Called "Hangaroo", it has over 8,500 terms and phrases so it won't get old too quick. Plus you can download it to your own computer ! It even allows you to add data files to expand the game's database of phrases.
I love word games and even though this one is a new take on an old game, it is very well done. To win you have to complete 10 phrases correctly. So far the best I've done is five. There are various catagories that the phrases come from, such as movie titles, songs & artists, TV shows, mountain range names, etc. There seems to be a lot of variety in the catagories to keep it interesting.
And it hsa a cute little kangeroo to 'encourage' you in the game! What more could you want?
Give it a try if you are just "hanging" around with nothing to do!
