Trine's Hangman demoed for WP7, offers unique Leaderboards

A few months ago we mentioned about Trines Appointment & Task Mover for Windows Mobile (which is being adapted for Windows Phone 7). Now the developer has come up with their first Windows Phone 7 game called simply enough, Trine's Hangman.

While there are a few Hangman games already in the Marketplace, we suppose what makes this one unique is the ability to be customized and more importantly, the Leader Boards. The latter feature is not part of LIVE but evidently their own Hangman boards that keep constant track of your progress in contrast to the rest of the world. Interestingly, the game is in a constant auto-save state, meaning you never really finish it--it always goes back to where you left off, even if you switch WP7 phones. We can see this being a big hit for you word-puzzle geeks or those who like just playing quickie games.

The app has just been sent to Microsoft for Marketplace approval, so we should see it soon. In the meantime, you can watch the full video demo after the break.
