Hangman Pro is a modern take on the classic hangman game, the same one we all played when we were kids, on paper or on the blackboard at school. Hangman Pro is the classic word-guessing game. Hangman Pro is easy to play, and fun for all ages. Letters can be chosen using the mouse or the keyboard. Words can be selected from dozens of built-in categories, or you can enter your own words, or even enter whole vocabulary lists from school. Hangman Pro is a colorful, educational game with digitized sound effects, speech, non-violent graphics, a little cultural literacy, and whole lot more. Non-violent, family software at its best.
This reduced resolution screenshot shows a game already in progress. As you can see, the category is Shakespearean Phrases. The game shown here is two correct letter guesses away from being won. Can you guess the missing letters?

Brickles Pro for Macintosh is a simple, addicting, ball and paddle game reminiscent of the breakout game of days gone by. Brickles Pro is fun for the whole family. It's a non-violent, colorful, sound-rich and amazingly customizable game. Brickles Pro for the Macintosh has been completely re-written from the ground up. It is now a full-fledged Universal Binary Macintosh Application, meaning it will run natively in both the older PowerPC and the newer Intel-based Macintoshes. Rosetta emulation is NOT required. Brickles Pro also works fine with the new Mac OS 10.7, known as Lion.
Brickles Pro is not a typical ball and paddle game. Brickles Pro features adjustable colors and patterns, adjustable ball and paddle sizes, adjustable speeds and adjustable window sizes. Such adjustments allow the game to be played by everyone from the very youngest children, first learning to use a mouse, to fast-paced arcade fans, from grandparents to grandkids. Think of it as "Family Software with a Bounce!"
Brickles Pro can be played in a small or a large window, or at full screen size, or in a narrow or a wide window. Brickles Pro also features stereo sounds, and various Brickles arrays. Each level of the game can feature a different randomly selected brickle array, or a favorite design can be played repeatedly. This picture (shown in reduced resolution) shows just one of the thousands of possible configurations of Brickles Pro.
By default, and just for fun, Brickles Pro is set to start off at a relatively high speed. By adjusting the Speed of the game, either using the Ball Speed Toolbar Control or the Speed Menu, you can make the game faster or slower. If it's still too fast, check out the Brickles Pro Preferences. The game starts out in an UNLIMITED mode, where the four speeds are based on the fastest possible speed that your computer will allow. But, you can also choose a THROTTLED mode of game play, where the four speeds will likely be a lot slower. Adjust to taste!
|1-Paddle Game||2-Paddle Game||4-Paddle Game|
One feature that really sets Brickles Pro apart from all other ball and paddle games, is that you can not only play with one bottom paddle (the normal way), but you can also play with two or four paddles. In a game with two paddles, the mouse controls both a top and a bottom paddle. In a game with four paddles, there's a top, a bottom, a left and a right paddle and NO walls. If the ball doesn't hit a paddle, the ball is lost. This option is not for everyone, that's for sure. But, it's there when you're ready for the supreme challenge!
The reduced resolution picture shown here shows a game with 2 paddles...one on the top, and one on the bottom. Moving the mouse left and right, moves both paddles left and right at the same time.
The reduced resolution picture shown here shows a game with 4 paddles. In a 4-paddle game, there are no walls. The only way to keep the ball in play is with the paddles. Miss the paddles, and the ball is gone. This is an extremely challenging, but fun, way to play Brickles Pro. Luckily, using the Speed Menu or Brickles Pro ToolBar, you can choose a very slow speed while learning to control the four paddles.
Brickles Pro includes support for the new Brickles Pro Online Hall of Fame Scoreboard web page. When you get a new high score, Brickles Pro offers you the option of sending that high score to the Brickles Pro Online Hall of Fame Scoreboard web page. This page includes various Top Ten Scoreboards. The first scoreboard lists all recently received high scores (so everyone is a winner, at least momentarily.) Other scoreboards show the Top Ten Scores for various Brickles Pro game configurations (1-Paddle Games, 2-Paddle Games, 4-Paddle Games, etc.)
In July of 2009, all existing Online Brickles Pro High Scores, accumulated over years of game play, have been reset. The playing field is once again leveled for everyone. But all of the past high scores have been archived to honor those who played so hard to get their names on the scoreboard. Here is the First Brickles Pro Online High Scores Archive.
Brickles Pro includes a Toolbar that offers instant control of many aspects of the game. The top row (from left to right) includes the Balls Remaining Indicator, the Score, and the Current Bonus (1X, at the moment.) The middle row includes the Speed Indicator/Switch, the Paddle Size Indicator/Switch, the Ball Size Indicator/Switch, the Random Color Generator Switch, the MultiColor Brickles Indicator/Switch, and the Brickle Array Design Indicator/Switch. The bottom row is dedicated to Game Messages (currently blank.)
Macintosh Requirements: Brickles Pro is a Universal Binary Macintosh application. It runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macintoshes. It's compatible with all versions of Apple's Mac OS X.
Windows Requirements: Brickles Pro for Windows does not require any kind of special hardware. A typical Windows PC running Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 should be just fine.

Hangman Bible is a religious-themed take on the classic hangman game, the same game we all played when we were kids, on paper or on the blackboard at school. Hangman Bible is a classic word game. It's easy to play, and fun for all ages. Letters can be chosen using the mouse or the keyboard. Words can be selected from various religious-themed built-in categories, suitable for Sunday Schools. Hangman Bible is a colorful, educational game with digitized sound effects, speech, non-violent graphics, a little cultural literacy, and whole lot more. Non-violent, family software at its best.
This reduced resolution screenshot shows a game already in progress. As you can see, the category is Religious Words and Phrases. Note that in the just previous game, the phrase guessed happened to be LUTHERAN CHURCH, so some information about that is still displayed. Can you guess the new word that hasn't yet been totally guessed?
Hangman Bible now features built-in word categories, such as: Apostles, Bible Stories, Books of the Old Testament, Books of the New Testament, Christmas, Jewish Months, Popes, Religious Words and Phrases, Sacraments, Saints and Women in the Bible.
Hangman Bible is a colorful, educational game with digitized sound effects, speech, non-violent graphics, a little cultural literacy, and whole lot more. The perfect game for your home or for Sunday School. Try it with your family today!
Macintosh Requirements: Hangman Bible is a carbonized Macintosh application. It runs on a vast array of Macintosh computers, both new and old. As a carbonized application, Hangman Bible will actually work with Mac OS's as old as Mac OS 8.6 and Mac OS 9, as long as Apple's CarbonLib extension (v1.6 or greater) is present. Hangman Bible also works perfectly with Mac OSX and Intel-based Macintosh computers using Mac OSX's built-in Rosetta. Apple has decided NOT to include Rosetta in the latest Mac OSX (known as Lion), and thus Hangman Bible cannot be used with Lion. If you are using Lion, you might be better served by purchasing Hangman Pro. Hangman Pro does not require Rosetta, and works perfectly with all versions of Mac OSX, including Lion and beyond.
Windows Requirements: Hangman Bible requires a typical Windows machine (95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, etc.) with screen resolution of 800x600, or more.
