Order 66: A Star Wars Hangman Game

A simple hangman game using vanilla Javascript


Order 66

Order 66

A Star Wars-themed "hangman"-style game where the user has 7 guesses to pick the letters in a randomly chosen Star Wars character's name.

If a user guesses all of the letters correctly, a winning message appears. A titled image of the character appears and their theme music plays. The number of wins is updated at the bottom of the stage area.

If a user runs out of guesses before guessing all of the letters correctly, a losing message appears. A mocking image of Salacious Crumb appears and the Cantina Band music plays.

Music can be toggled on/off at any point during the game.

Characters Included

16 Star Wars characters were included in the game:

  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Boba Fett
  • Chewbacca
  • Darth Maul
  • Darth Sidious
  • Darth Tyranus
  • Darth Vader
  • Han Solo
  • Jar Jar Binks
  • Lando Calrissian
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Padme Amidala
  • Princess Leia
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • Yoda

Concepts Used

This is a straightforward game built with fundamental Javascript concepts:

  • variables
  • arrays
  • objects
  • functions
  • if/else statements
  • for loops
  • methods
  • DOM manipulation
  • events


This game uses the keyup event to capture user input and is currently limited to gameplay on desktop/laptop devices. A future area of exploration would be to add one of the following:

  1. A virtual keyboard that appears on smaller screens to capture user input
  2. An input field to capture user input

This input could then be passed through a function in a similar way to how the keyup event function works.

Built With

  • Sublime Text - Text Editor
  • Git Bash
