It appears that Naught Reawakening is not the only notable new iOS game that’s essentially a relaunch of a previous title. As it turns out, Space Hangman: Aliens Go Crazy from Bulkypix is one such game as well.
Developed by Lele Studio and Etamin Studio, Space Hangman is the rereleased edition of Smart Aliens (whose trailer appears below). As its name suggests, it’s a space-themed version of the classic game of hangman, where players guess preset words one letter at a time.
Space Hangman also happens to be a social hangman, as it lets you play against your Facebook friends or random players from around the world in a bid to become the smartest alien in the galaxy. You can do so in duel mode, where you and an opponent take turns, or in arena mode, where you go against three other aliens in real time.
To help you win, you can trap your opponents with lightning, the psycho keyboard, or “alien-napping,” and upgrade your alien with superpowers.

These social features, along with polished graphics and amusing sound effects, make Space Hangman (formerly Smart Aliens) a fun word puzzle game.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.1.1 or later, and already optimized for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Space Hangman: Aliens Go Crazy is available now on the App Store as a free-to-play game.
Note that the game seems to be riddled with bugs at the moment, which are preventing players from going past its splash screen. Here’s hoping Bulkypix and Co. come out with an F-I-X soon.
