The latest Wordle word game craze, at first glance, seems like a simple word deduction challenge, but it can be harder than it looks. Players are given a five-letter word that they must figure out in six tries.
Since its release, Wordle has become an Internet phenomenon gathering more than 2.5 million daily players in the space of a few months. Its addicted users, however, can only play one game per day. So, for those looking for more word deductions until they can crack the next Wordle challenge, here are some more word games available to play.
There are several remakes of Wordle, some of which have the same name, but the game can only be played online through the manufacturer’s website and it’s free. Wordle’s official website can be found here. Here are some options if you need a Wordle fix until the next puzzle is available:
hello wordl has the same rules as wordle but you can play as many times as you want and words range from four to eleven letters.
WordGuessr is a Wordle clone where players have unlimited games. Players can also share a challenge with friends so you can play the same word.
Word Master is another unlimited Wordle clone but you cannot share your results.
If you have children, you may be familiar with the Exploding Kittens card game, really fun family entertainment. The creator of this game, Oatmeal, brought destructive kittens to mobile devices with Kitty Letter.
In free mobile app players unscramble the words of a magic vortex to build an army of cats. You can then use these kittens to attack the house of your opponents and destroy it or defend yourself against an attack of cats.
Babble Royale pits up to 16 players against each other in a scrabble-like game. In the free battle royale game you have to form words and you can be eliminated if another player connects a word to yours. The gridded space of the board shrinks as a “hot zone” closes in as the game progresses, damaging players in it. The game is available on Steam.
SpellTower has been around since 2008 and has received favorable reviews. It is available to play on Apple and Android mobile devices. The game features 11 different modes that players can use to find words from a group of scrambled letters. A bit like Tetris, players must prevent the stack of letters from stacking too high. With each correct word discovered, more and more letters are added to the base of the tower.
In 2020, it got a new version, Spell turn +, which can be played on Apple Arcade.
