HangMan Logo

Hangman is a paper and pencil guessing game for two or more players. One player thinks of a word, phrase or sentence and the other tries to guess it by suggesting letters or numbers. This is an exact simulation of the game with computer.


The word to guess is represented by a row of dashes, giving the number of letters, numbers and category. If the guessing player suggests a letter or number which occurs in the word, the other player writes it in all its correct positions. If the suggested letter or number does not occur in the word, the other player draws one element of the hanged man stick figure as a tally mark. The game is over when:

  • The guessing player completes the word, or guesses the whole word correctly
  • The other player completes the diagram:
  • This diagram is, in fact, designed to look like a hanging man. Although debates have arisen about the questionable taste of this picture it is still in

Hangman Stick Figure

  • use today. A common alternative for teachers is to draw an apple tree with ten apples, erasing or crossing out the apples as the guesses are used up.

Their are several features has been included in this version of the code. Each feature would include certain level of customization difficulty at the end.

The whole project follows the JavaEE framework and strictly adheres to the MVC Architecture.

  • Model: There is a Player class in src/model/. Which is the model which we are sharing among all the Views and Controllers.
  • Controller: Its a Servlet named at src/servlet/ which handles and validates all the requests from all the Views.
  • Views: There are two views name HomeScreen.jsp and GameScreen.jsp at WebContent/ which are written in several technologies. Details would be clearly provided

The whole front end is at Location WebContent folder of the repository. It consist mostly of HTML, CSS and few Validations by JavaScript. I have used several tools like

  • Pure: This is used to fix the layouts, Grids and Buttons
  • HeadRoom.js: This is used to animate the top menu based on the gestures to increase the Screen Size.
  • FontAwsome and Glyph Search: These were used to gather all the Icons and Glyphs.
  • TypeWonder: This is used to set Different Fonts through out the frontend.
  • ColorCo: This was used to pick the colors and finding the matches to other colors.
  • Amimation Cheat Sheet: This was used to set all the animations throughout the website.

to construct the frontend.

I Hope You would enjoy the Game and Customize for your sake. I would be happy to know for any further improvements on the project.
