The letters are highlighted green if they are in the correct order and placed in the correct order, yellow when they are present but incorrectly placed as well as grey if the letters are not in the target word in any way. As in the board games Battleship as well as Mastermind Mastermind, you can use this meagre information to boost your next guess as well as narrow your focus on the word that you are trying to find. (Infuriatingly the game provides the player no indication on whether a given letter appears more than once in the word you want to guess this is a design decision that inspires howls of online anguish whenever, for example "TRUSS" appears.)

According to New York Times, Wordle was invented last year by an engineer from Brooklyn, Josh Wardle, as a gift to his partner. The game soon became a fan favorite in his entire family. The game's popularity grew across the internet, ranging from 90 players on the 1st of November to 300,000 players on January 2.

The simplicity is the appeal. One Wordle comes out released each day, and it's the exact same game for everyone on the planet. There aren't ads nor are there any annoying messages begging players to return every day and no new skins an option to change the look the letters appear, as well as no offers of coupons for sending the game's name to friends. With so many people playing that the chance to profit in the wake of play wordle's achievement is huge. But the game's rejection of the capitalist systems that are the foundation of most video games of today offers a fresh, innocent quality. It is long might Wordle endure this pure.
