About The Project

Phrase Hunter Demo Screenshot

Phrase Hunter is a browser-based word guessing game that is part of Treehouse's Full Stack JavaScript Techdegree. This project uses JavaScript and OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) to generate a random, hidden phrase, which a player tries to guess before running out of hearts.

It works with both the on-screen and physical keyboard.
