    Hi everyone, I'm pleased to announce I've just released my first ever mobile game built in Unity!

    A little bit about it -

    Wordle is a word puzzle with a twist. Train your brain and test your vocabulary by finding as many words as you can within the given time. Simply swipe the letters to build a word, scoring points along the the way.
    Wordle combines the best of word searching and word related games making for a truly challenging and addictive experience!
    Compete with friends in the daily challenge to see how you stack up! Can you top the leader boards?
    - Extend your vocabulary as you go on a word hunt through hundreds of levels each with a different focus
    - Challenge yourself and your friends with a different challenge every day!
    If you enjoy a word search that boggles your brain then play Wordle today!



    Available on -

    Sounds amazing. How did you do the vocabulary database? You insert the whole latest dictionary words data and do checking every time players had selected a full words? Or it's totally scripted? I'm artist, just curious on the technical side. Haha. Do you have Twitter?:)

    Thanks @AkiraWong89

    The Dictionary is just a text file of viable words. It's one used for scrabble championships, they are freely available to download on line and then loaded as a resource. And yes, basically I'm currently just checking the word against the dictionary every time a player completes their selection.

    But I also wanted to be able to display to the player the number of words that could be created from any given boggle board. So rather than just loading it as a dictionary, I'm instead converted the text file into a Digital tree (Trie) similar to those used in predictive text or autocomplete functions. Also called a directed acyclic word graph (DAWG).

    This allows me to then cycle through any given boggle board and calculate the number of possible words that could be created.

    I have a newly created Twitter account @StudiosFatcat which I'll be updating shortly

    We've just published Wordle on the Amazon app store!

    I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was!

    Just released a major update on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store

    We've added new French, German, Spanish and Italian dictionaries to Wordle. So if you think you're multi-lingual you can try playing Wordle in a different language!

    We've also translated Wordle into French, German, Spanish and Italian. If you spot any mistakes please let us know :)

    We've also tried to optimise the game and reduce the APK size and we'll be continuing to do this for the next few releases.

    We've added new features such as the ability to Rotate the tile board or swap a troublesome letter with a wildcard joker and we've removed the daily challenge until we can improve performance.

    We hope you enjoy!
