The best alternatives to 15 Wordle, from Heardle to Quordle to Squirdle

Over the past few months, Wordle has gone from a niche language game to a supernova that has caused a sensation around the world. But if you’ve solved today’s Wordle and are looking for new challenges, don’t worry – every day there’s a whole world of Wordle clones and alternative games to play.

Here are 15 of our favorite Wordle-like games, including some that you can even play offline.

Hello Wordl

Hello Wordl is one of the first Wordle clones to appear on the Internet, and its gameplay is the same as the original. But the biggest difference is that it’s not once a day — there are hundreds of words available, and as soon as you finish a game, you can start guessing again with a new word.

As a bonus, you can choose the length of the word you want. Using the slider at the top, you can set the word to any length from 4 letters to 11 letters. Each length setting has its own dictionary of possible answers.

If you love Wordle, this is the game for you.



Do you consider yourself a music lover? Then check out Heardle, a game that asks you to guess the right song every day.

When you start, you can hear the first second of the song. Whenever you guess wrong or press the skip button, you’ll be able to listen for a few more seconds. By the last guess, you’ll get the first 16 seconds of content.

You have six chances to guess right, just like Wordle. But you don’t get any hints or messages other than the music — either you know the song or you don’t.

If you’re familiar with video game soundtracks, you’ll probably like Videogame Heardle. It works the same way as Heardle, but all the music comes from popular games.


If one Wordle isn’t enough, how about four? Quordle lets you play four different Wordle games at once, each with a different answer. Every guess you make will count toward all four games. But unlike the original, you have eight guesses instead of six.

Quordle has two game modes. The daily mode gives you a puzzle every day, and practice mode lets you play as long as you want.


Built for the more visual minded among us, Framed gives you still frames from a movie and asks you to guess what movie it is. You’ve got six guesses, and each guess earns you a new screenshot.

The movie and screenshots change every day. If the only movies you know are blockbusters, you might struggle with this one — Framed isn’t afraid to pick more obscure titles.

Le Mot and Un Juego de Palabras Diario

While English might be the most spoken language in the world, it’s certainly not the only one. So when Wordle erupted in popularity, it only made sense to adapt it into other languages.

While there are dozens of language-specific Wordle clones, the two that we’ve played are Le Mot (French) and Un Juego de Palabras Diario (Spanish). Both work exactly like Wordle, just with a different dictionary.

Other translated Wordle clones include AlWird (Arabic), Вордли (Russian), and Zidou (Cantonese). No matter your native tongue, you can probably find a version of Wordle that works for you.

Globle and Worldle

In line with international themes, both Globle and Worldle require you to find the right country every day.

Once you guess correctly, you’ll be told how far your guess is from the right answer. Use these clues to determine the correct location on the map. Worldle will also give you the outline of the country you’re looking for, which can make things easier for players who know their borders.


Want to really test your vocabulary skills? Take a look at Semantle. This game asks you to find a hidden word, but instead of telling you which letters are in it, it only tells you the “semantic similarity” of your guess to the correct answer — in other words, how similar the meaning of the words is.

The score of each word is made up of a negative 100 to a positive 100. The lower your guess score, the less it has to do with the correct answer. There is no limit to how many times you can guess, and a regular game may require more than 100 guesses.

If you get stuck, you can click on the “Hints” button and the game will show a word that is closer to meaning than you’ve guessed so far. If you’re stuck, you can click Give Up and find the answer immediately.

Squirdle, SWordle, and other fandom versions

The English language has a lot of words — and that’s not even counting the ones made up for franchises like Star Wars, like “Wookie” or “Jedi.”

There are plenty of Wordle clones that mix the guessing game format with all sorts of fandoms. Here are some of our favorites:

1.  Squirdle asks you to guess the right Pokemon from the ever-growing list of over 900. With every Pokemon you guess, you’ll be told whether the right monster is newer or older; heavier or lighter; smaller or bigger; and whether you guessed the right type combination. You’ve got eight guesses to strike gold (or a Goldeen).

2.  YGOrdle gives you ten tries to guess the right Monster Card from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game. As of this writing, there are more than 7,000 Monster Cards out there, so even the most experienced duelists might struggle with this one.

3. SWordle takes Wordle to a galaxy far, far away. You’ve got six tries to guess the Star Wars-related word. These answers can get obscure, so read up on your Skywalker lore.

If you’ve got a fandom you love, ask Google for a Wordle clone that fits your interests. There’s a good chance that you’ll find it.


The developers of Cloudle give their game a pretty simple description: “Look, it’s Wordle, but for the weather.”

Cloudle asks you to guess the five-day forecast for a random city on Earth. You’ve got six guesses, and nine different weather conditions to assign to each day. You don’t need to be a meteorologist to master this one, but it certainly helps.


If you like Wikipedia games, you’ll have fun with Redactle. Every day, Redactle finds and massively censors an article on Wikipedia (from a list of about ten thousand). Your job is to guess the words being censored and use the blacked out text to figure out what article you’re reading.

Like Semantle, there’s no limit to how many times you can guess. Trust us. You will need a lot of guesswork.

Mastermind and Jotto

Mastermind (also sometimes called “Hit and Blow”) is a two-player strategy game involving pegs that come in six different colors. One player (the Codemaker) places the pegs in a secret order, and the other player uses their own pegs to guess what order the Codemaker placed theirs in. With every guess, the Codemaker tells their opponent which pegs they placed correctly and which ones are wrong.

Jotto is even closer. Each player picks a secret five-letter word, and the players take turns trying to guess each other’s word. With every guess, the player gets a score from zero to five, telling them how many of the letters they guessed appear in the word.

Pressman Toys makes Mastermind sets and actively sells them in stores and online. Jotto doesn’t use any special equipment to play —  all you need is a pencil and a sheet of paper.
