HangARoo is a free classic word-guessing game that was built from the ground up to be played on legacy versions of Windows OS, including Windows 98 and Windows XP. It features a simple gameplay loop like the games “Hangman” and “Wheel of Fortune” where players are tasked to guess words and phrases with as few unlocked characters as possible.

With its entertaining and challenging puzzles and the constant presence of the animated kangaroo, this lightweight and easy-to-use videogame can provide endless hours of entertainment and even education to users who want to be skilled at this highly streamlined guessing game.

Main Features

Like in the popular competition show “Wheel of Fortune”, all players of HangARoo game are tasked with a single goal – to guess which word or phrase is hidden in front of them with as few activated characters. If players are unsure about the hidden phrase, they can elect to unlock more characters which will give them more hints.

The game offers three difficulty levels, allowing players to choose between easy, medium, and hard. The easy level provides hints for the phrase and has fewer letters to choose from, while the hard level offers no hints and has a wider range of letters to select.

The showcased phrases available in the game cover a wide array of topics, including famous quotes, general knowledge, pop culture references, and more. This makes the game highly enjoyable and even educational, ensuring that each game is unique, challenging, and exciting.

However, it should be stated that the HangARoo for PC lacks any form of multiplayer, which can limit replayability and prevent users to use this app together with friends.


One of the biggest limitations of this app is its compatibility. The app was built from the ground up to run only on legacy versions of Windows OS, and additionally, it also requires the presence of Flash player, which is a software package that is no longer used on the modern Windows platform.

This makes HangARoo completely unavailable on modern Windows PC, but it makes it one of the rare retro PC games that can easily run even on the oldest hardware configurations that don’t have enough resources to run modern operating systems.

HangARoo is a fun and engaging game that is perfect for word game enthusiasts looking for a challenge. Its charming graphics, diverse phrase library that consists of over 8 thousand words and phrases, and adjustable difficulty levels make it a great game for players of all ages.
