Wordle: Who is foding with the game of five letters that sweeps in networks?
Although he does not have hyperrealist graphics, explosive gameplay or an epic story, Wordle is on his way to becoming the first great 2022 game.Thousands of people access the original, free and without advertisements every day, or any of the dozens of copies that appeared on Internet pages or even the Apple application store.Wordle is already a viral phenomenon and, as the cake grows, there are those who try to put their boots until they throw it from the party and who shares the portions of the cake that takes.
Wordle, in its primal conception, is what Spain from the early 90s knew as a lingo.Players must guess a five -letter word and begin, precisely, giving one of them.Then the right letters - that is, present in the secret word and in that same place - will appear in green, the incorrect ones colorate gray and those that are sought, but in a different order, they will be yellow.With these clues, there are up to six options (Ramoncín gave one less) to get victory.
Part of its success comes from this color code, which can be shared on social networks allowing followers to know how many attempts a person has needed to decipher the puzzle of each day.Another keys is precisely that limitation of a word - the same for everyone - per day.
The game was created a few months ago by Josh Wardle, a Brooklyn programmer with experience in viral phenomena (he is the creator of the 'button' of Reddit) who gave him a name making a word game with his last name.
Wardle did not seek success or money, but simply give a gift to his wife, who loves this type of games.As told The New York Times, at first they played two and later extended to the family WhatsApp group.Finally, in October arrived an open version, which went from 90 players on November 1 to more than 300.000 on January 2.And it continues to grow.
With success the copies arrived.It already happened at the time with Flappy Bird and probably passes again with the next great 'ball'.In the case of Wordle, the copies adapt the game to other languages (there are, among others, versions in Spanish, Catalan or Galician) or they turn, sometimes humorous, to the idea (one of them seeks to guess a letter eachday and has no attempt limit).In the same way, there are so much who maintains the altruistic vision of Jordsh Wardle and who seeks to look with his idea.
Among the first is, among others, Daniel Rodríguez, who adapted Wordle to Spanish and promises that the game "will be free forever" (accept donations to keep the servers) and give the credit of the original version (to which he links) to thecreator.
A similar case and at the same time tangential is that of also developer Steven Cravotta.Cravotta is the creator of Wordle.Another completely different Wordle.This is an application that made five years ago and went up to Apple's store, where a five -year -.However, the success of his Tocaya, which has no mobile version (at least an officer), made the downloads, who came from confused users who had looked for Wordle in the App Store.And not a few: in a week it exceeded 200.000 facilities and already accumulates more than half a million.
Following this coincidence, Cravotta obtained several thousand dollars, but instead of keeping them or trying to get more, he decided to contact Wardle to ask where he wanted to donate that money.Finally, the chosen was Boost!West Oakland, an organization that offers free tutoring to students.
On the other side of this balance appears Zachary Shakked, a third programmer linked to Wordle that now presumes in his Twitter biography of having been "canceled" for doing a clone of the game.Both appreciations are correct: he created the copy, he presumed about it - also being looked out with her - and received the contempt of not a few tweeters.Then he tried to explain - Wordle, he recalled, it is not an original idea, as the king of fried chicken knows - and assured that he had offered the payment of a percentage to Wardle to use his semihomonym nomenclature.Finally, Apple cut for the healthy: the company eliminated its application, and many others, its store.
