🎮 WDC #26 Can you make your own "Wordle" game in Thunkable?

I was hoping to make a version myself… glad it’s a WDC!

Loving the clone features of the Snap to Place interface right now!

Here’s what I have… I start with two buttons, clone 'em a whole bunch and then use some text blocks and math to check each letter against the secret word.

Next, I have to figure out if the second row will function like the first and check for a correct answer (all green) and also stop when the player runs out of rows.

The nice thing about dynamic design is that when i realized I needed a keyboard that uses QWERTY format, it took about 3 seconds to fix it.

(I still need to delete the blank keys after the Z and make proper keyboard rows.)

Making some good progress!

Updates: added the emojis, fixed the keyboard, added backspace button

that’s amazing! and awesome!

i’ve got a “working” version, except it doesn’t have the keyboard. so you’ll have to enter your guess by hand and rely on your memory for checking unused letters. (warning the target words - i took 500 - are hard - many of them have doubled letters, like BOOBS, etc) but it’s playable to the end . it even includes a word check against an online dictionary.

Looks great! Could you share the project page please? I’m out of projects.

Also, which API have you used? I’m in the last leg of my app but I’m unable to check whether words are valid or not.

Ok, here’s my WORDLE, which I’ve named GRIDDLE because Wordle is basically a riddle in a grid.
I haven’t gotten my word-validation working yet, though.

The same for me. It seems there is an issue with the link @codeswept

@manyone This is a power house example of coding in Thunkable. I’m already at about twice as many blocks as you and I’m not quite done. Very impressive! I always learn a lot from seeing your projects. And the status=“200” check on the dictionary API is smart… I borrowed that!

thanks for the kind words - but i opted for the easy way and decided to just use traditional input instead of a keypad image - the processing blocks for that alone can account for half the project!

Wasn’t expecting to have so many apps, of such a high quality, built so soon - great work @tatiang @manyone and @codeswept

Hopefully as folks have more time over the coming days we’ll see even more entries!

Wanted to share an alternative approach to the WDC, where I’m doing the design majority of the design in Figma and applying the finishing touches in Thunkable.

Also happy to share my Figma file too and would actively encourage folks to share any derivative or improved versions you make with the Community:

Hope this is helpful and gets others up and running with this challenge!
