Wordle is a very popular game in recent months. Give players a very simple word puzzle to get your brain involved. A useful workout for a few minutes every day.
Specifically, Wordle is a game where you have six chances to guess a five-letter word in English, and the user gets clues as to which letter he guessed. It tells you if they are in the exact position or if they are in the word, but in a different position.
Why is Wordle so successful? Because it has simple rules and it’s fun, but it also makes you put your mind to the contribution. The challenge is that there are a total of 12,000 five-letter words in English, but most of them are not often used.
Squabble, a more complicated Wordle
As is often the case, the Wordle phenomenon has stimulated a lot of imitators. That’s how Squabble came about.
The first thing you need to know about Squabble is that it’s fast. Really, very fast. One of the advantages of Wordle is that you can play at your own pace, deliberating for hours on possible solutions. This is not an option with Squabble, which instead forces you to play both against human opponents and against the clock.
So Squabble puts you in front of other players. You will need to enter the hypotheses quickly, even if you only have a few more attempts to find the correct five-letter word.
Squabble has a fast pace, but the rest is the Wordle you’re used to. You have green letters, yellow letters, and five-letter words that should be obvious (but usually aren’t).
The end result is a game that is both similar and very different from Wordle, but which could very well create its own niche even among the many clones that have appeared recently.
