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 (opens in new tab) and Trine's paid version can be found here (opens in new tab) at the Marketplace (both links opens Zune).

  • Who is Trine?? These developers are on TOP of the Windows Phone game. This is definitely what I mean by Windows Phone Worthy. Yes, I'm getting the full version.
  • THIS is Trine :)Long story short; without the sync-chaos with her old Samsung i600, I would not have been making WP7 apps.I made TrineFix to fix her duplicate-contacts and appointments, and it all started as a very specific app for her needs. But I put it out for free on XDA...since it was already made...and the feedback was I kept getting more and more into developing on Windows Mobile.And now...the Trine-name and "TrineSeries" has become kind of a little trademark for my I have kept it, even though it is a bit awkward name for an international market.And thanks for the kind words! That is still a huge part of what drives me to put in these "insane hours", hearing from "strangers across the globe" who actually appreciate the effort I have put in :)
  • I just made the purchase FULL version. Ok, so I lost the first two games. :) But the "awwwww" sound effect is neat. I posted this link on my Facebook page and on Sprint's. Good stuff Gydar. I'm glad to have the TrineSeries apps on my phone. If its not worthy, I won't install it. BTW, I hope you don't mind a feature spot on my blog in the Windows Phone Worthy section. Thanks again for the history and this game.
  • I absolutely don't mind, I need all the advertisement of my apps I can get, so go ahead!
  • This is a very well done game, not too many 'achievements' but not too few, real-time updating of stats, and an online stat page. A great example of a simple game, but a well thought out development which leads to a great experience. to the developer.
  • WOW, that one helluva way to promote a game and I think it was spot on. I'm gonna get this simply because the promo video was so well done.
  • Thanks :)After spending 10+ hours in one-go making that video...I have that melody on my brain for life now :)
  • by the way, the 50-in-a-row bonus worked, then next time i went in game it was gone. has happened repeatedly.
  • Coffee, could you send me an e-mail and explain more what you meant?I am not sure what you mean by "it was gone"?What is gone?When you reach 50-in-a-row...which is formidable by you, I might start with 0 in the "completed in a row", since there is no higher "in-a-row"-achievement. So you start with 0 again, so that you can earn 3-in-a-row, 5-in-a-row, and so forth once more.Was this what you meant?You can send me an e-mail from the about-screen in the game, or from here; I should add some more "in-a-rows"...people are playing better than we anticipated when we made it :)
