There's Now A Wordle For Music Fans

There's Now A Wordle For Music Fans

Fans of word-guessing game Wordle are jumping for joy over the software's latest release Heardle.

Fans of word-guessing game Wordle are jumping for joy over recent release Heardle.

Calling all Scrabble supporters who - like me - are late to the game and haven't yet jumped on the Wordle trend, if you like music too then this one's for you.

While Brits have been left fuming over Wordle's American bias, the game is so popular that it sold for a whopping seven figures.

And the only logical thing to do when something is that popular, is for someone to jump on the bandwagon and make yet another version.

Wordle, which first blessed the lives of many and became an aspect of their daily routine earlier this year, already has a series of other versions including Quordle and Octordle, The Independent reports.

Quordle features extra guesses and acts as four games of Wordle in one, and Octordle isolates different countries for users to guess using eight grids.

However, the latest offshoot to surface of the game is one which puts users' music expertise to the test by playing small sections of a song which become longer each time when a new clue is revealed.

Heardle's 'How to Play' instructions state: 'Guess today's song by listening to its intro. Incorrect or skipped guesses unlock more of the song. Guess correctly in as few tries as possible and share your score.'


On its website, Heardle details that the game is 'A respectful homage to Wordle, with a musical twist.'

It reassures that the songs chosen are 'randomly plucked from a list of the most streamed songs in the past decade.'

'Much love (and all the relevant copyright) to all the artists featured,' it concludes.

Heardle has been such a hit that in recent days it's even been trending on Twitter. One user wrote: 'I will never fail my queen #Heardle.'

Another stated: 'Okay so now i’m glad wordle is a thing bc now people wanna come up with cool things like #Heardle.'

A third commented: 'I got today’s heardle in one second. Two seconds ago I didn’t know what Heardle was. This is thrilling.'

So, if Heardle, Quordle and Octordle simply aren't enough for you, then why not try your hand at the latest variation.

It certainly beats a Saturday night out clubbing if you ask me.
