Trine's Hangman gets updated and then some

If you like the game of hangman, Trine's Hangman is a must have game for your Windows Phone. Fantastic graphics, challenging play, Wikipedia integration to look up words and a global leaderboard that is constantly being updated helps make Trine's an appealing game. The Epic Trailer (fantastic soundtrack) above is a good illustration of the commitment Gydar Industries has made to find a way to constantly improve Trine's Hangman.

The most recent update, version 1.11.0, also reflects this commitment. The biggest change is that the Lite version and Trial version are now free, ad-supported version that are identical to the paid version.  No more limitations in game play.  The developers made every effort to avoid having the game affected by the ad-banner and in doing so, the clock bar is hidden in the ad supported versions to avoid any drastic layout changes.

If you don't want ads, another bit of good news is that paid version has been reduced from $2.99 to $1.99. The current update also has the customary performance tweaks, bug fixes and design changes to improve the overall gaming experience.

Version 1.11.0 picks up where previous updates left off. Updates that brought the ability to use pictures from your Pictures Hub as the wallpaper, new animations and a two-player mode (pass and play). And Trine's development "team of one" isn't resting now that version 1.11.0 has been released.

Version 1.12.0 and 1.13.0 are already in the works and will focus on increasing the word database to the game (currently has 10,000 regular words and phrases) and a few design enhancements. There's also a handicap mode in the works to level the playing field in the two-player mode.

And if that wasn't all, mark August 28th on your calendar. There will be a one day special on the paid version of Trine's Hangman that knocks the price down to $.99. So if you haven't tried Trine's Hangman, download the Lite Version and next weekend, take advantage of the one day sale and get the ad-free version for a steal. The developers are confident that their servers can handle the increased traffic.

Trine's Hangman Lite can be downloaded here and Trine's paid version can be found here at the Marketplace (both links opens Zune).
