Hangman+

Hangman Puzzle Game Parallax menu that generates random background to game Zooming characters to talk to the player

This is my first programming project so its a bit basic and I'm sure there's lots of things in there I could've done better. The sound seems a bit flaky too, not sure why certain samples aren't playing yet other samples do when used by the same bit of code... Anyway I hope people give it a go and let me know what you think. The Hangman logic comes from Al Sweigart's ASCII version from his book 'Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python' but the graphics, rounds etc are all my code.

    I don't know how to play

    The computer will tell you the subject (colours, fruits, shapes etc) and how many letters are in the word. You guess letters that might be in the word 1 at a time until you get the word or you run out of guesses. If you get 6 letters wrong you get hanged (nice eh!) but if you guess the word the Hangman gets hung instead. The target is to win 9 rounds either in increasing difficulty or at random.

     Thank you. In fact, I'd read source code and found the letters list after my post.
