Wordle, a simple word puzzle game with no unique features, unexpectedly become a social media sensation.

App Store and web browser wordle game, built by New York-based programmer Josh Wardle, will be free in October 2021. The first few days of the game saw an average of only 90 participants each day. There were an additional 300,000 people in November. There were more than two million participants as of this week.

Wordle is becoming a hot subject on social media thanks to a series of articles describing the outcomes attained or giving advice on how to play.
She was astonished by Wordle's "hot," and Wardle was surprised by Wordle's astonishment. One of his partners, Palak Shah, is a huge charades fan, therefore he came up with the idea for the game. In the following years, Shah joined Wardle in the creation of the game.

"There are no notifications to keep players involved, and there are no bothersome adverts to be found in the game. It was all about having fun for me. as a result of, "Wardle made the comment. Wordle was described by him as "feverish" because of how easy it was to use, but he also found it to be "full of problems."

A big element of Wordle's attraction, according to Adam Procter, chair of the Southampton University Department of Game Design, is that it transports users back to the early days of the internet, when games were small and feature-simple but nevertheless popular. Flappy Bird, 2048, and Threes are all examples of basic games that have been popular in the past.

While Covid-19 was taking place, Staffordshire University's Professor Chris Headleand, Head of Game Design Technology, says Wordle is garnering more attention since it is simple and engaging. "A brief game a day is a good reminder to everyone, urging them to take more time off from working from home," adds Headleand.
Gameplay that's easy to understand

Wordle does not demand any personal information from users and does not show any adverts. The player simply has to guess a five-letter word and can do so up to six times.
Entering each word will result in a color-coded display: green for letters in the proper location and response, yellow for letters in the answer but incorrectly placed, and gray for incorrect letters. The player must fit the letters together to form the word that makes sense in the last row after discovering the proper one.

Interestingly, Wordle only offers one word per day, which is the same for every player globally. Regardless of whether or not the estimate is correct, each player is limited to one play each day. They may post the findings on social media once they've completed the task. To keep the results a secret, this section simply shows the total amount of time played, the number of times the correct word is predicted, and the color of the box in which it appears.
