🎮 WDC #20 Can you build your own "Hangman"-style word game?

@overturner, when I start the app and see something like this:


…and then type e into the text input and click on the Check button, my score goes down by 1. So if I had -6 points, it then goes to -7.

Am I doing something wrong?


@tatiang well you were supposed to type the whole word
You can also see the other app by using the bottom tab navigator
(Thanks for your feedback , I will try to change it to accepting only the missing letters, but for now, that’s how it works)


I had the same confusion tatiang did! :slight_smile: Maybe you just need to add a label with some instructions.


Thanks for the Feedback @catsarisky & @tatiang I Have Added It.
I also Added some other features like lives etc.(They’re still in the testing stage) :grinning:

I tried it but I need your help. I made the design. Now I cannot understand how to do the code. My design is different as it has 6 images for hangman and win image and lose image. There is a text input which would take a letter and aa button to execute the action. I need help. If a person writes a wrong letter, it would be shown below wrong letters. If you see the design, you will understand everything. I need your help for the CODE. This is the link- Thunkable

open your project and click on the hidden menu on the left so you can learn how to code usig thunkable. good luck!

click on the left arrow next to “User Interface” to expand the menu.
