Hanging With Friends Android – Finally Arrives

Sep 23, 2011   //   by admin   //   News  //  No Comments

Today, Zynga announced the official release of their smash hit, Hanging With Friends, for the Android series of devices. Current fans of the game will note that they can now play against friends, foes or random adversaries on multiple platforms. Zynga had been giving hints about the eventual release, as far back as mid-August and the rumor mill had been speculating ever since.

For those that do not know, Hanging With Friends is the family classic game of Hangman, with a social networking component. You can play up to 20 games simultaneously, while chatting and conversing with people on your friends list or within your network. The bonus option is being able to challenge random opponents to a match. Both Hanging With Friends and Words With Friends have been frequent visitors to the Apple App Store Top 10 throughout the summer.

The concept of the game is to first pic your online avatar. Once you have done this, your objective is to guess the word your opponent creates for you. There are a few lifelines available to you, in case you get stuck. Both you and your opponent are hanging on. If you are able to successfully guess the word correctly, you will advance to the next round and still hang on. If you guess the word wrong, you begin to lose your grip and run the risk of falling.

A free version of Hanging With Friends is available in the Android Market, beginning Wednesday, September 21st and will be offered only for a limited time.

Hanging With Friends Pulled From iTunes App Store

Sep 12, 2011   //   by admin   //   News  //  4 Comments

Browsing through the Apple iTunes App Store tonite, one can see the typical Angry Birds offerings. In particular, we were looking for Hanging With Friends, the new offshoot of the Zynga series, for iPad. The paid version of Hanging With Friends is currently offline and not being offered for download for your Apple devices. However, the free version remains available while you wait.

Making the rounds, we have seen no mention of the situation on the official Zynga or Hanging With Friends platform locations (ie. Facebook, Twitter, etc). For an unknown reason, the full version has been taken down from the site. As soon as we find out the reasoning behind this decision, we will let you know. Stay tuned here for more details.

Did Hanging With Friends Make The Florida Marlins Crappy?

Jul 7, 2011   //   by admin   //   News  //  No Comments

The Florida Marlins last month of baseball was disastrous. In June, 2011 they lost 23 of 28 games. Before that they were looking really solid and leading their division. Now they’re in last place and 10+ games below .500. When being interviewed to talk about what’s happened to the team, Gaby Sanchez was in the middle of playing a game of Hanging With Friends on his iPhone. Maybe they are too busy playing Hanging With Friends to concetrate on baseball? You can read more about it here:

Continuing to expand its “With Friends” brand, Zynga has released “Hanging With Friends” in the Canadian App store.

A new element to this updated version is the usage of Instant Replay, which allows you to watch your opponent struggle to figure out their word.

Hanging With Friends Server Is Busy

Jul 1, 2011   //   by admin   //   News  //  1 Comment

Getting lots of reports of the servers being busy tonight. I still haven’t updated to 4.03 or newer yet. Too many people saying that 4.04 is even crashing and hanging. I’ve got different issues tonight and it seems that a lot of you guys are dealing with the same thing. I keep either getting the alert box that says, “Server Is Busy. The game server is busy right now. Please try again in a few moments.” or else the app gets stuck on Sending and I can’t even cancel out. Hopefully these issues get resolved soon.

How are things going with your games? Everything running smoothly? What version are you running?
