First came Wordle, then came the clones of Wordle, and now here comes the clones of the Wordle clones. hearlea daily puzzle game that makes you guess the name of a song based on just a few seconds of its intro, is one of the most popular games like wordle we found, and it became so famous among puzzle lovers that it now has some imitators as well.
If you are a music connoisseur, especially when it comes to video game music, you should feast your ears with Heardle video game. It doesn’t have such an imaginative name and looks exactly like Heardle – it even admits to being a direct clone in the “About” tab – but it’s full of video game music rather than pop tracks for you to guess. Put on some headphones and get ready to challenge your ears.
As with Heardle, you start by listening to just a single second of the track. If your guess is wrong (or if you want to skip this turn), you unlock another second of the intro. You have six guesses in total, after which the answer is revealed along with the entire track. Even the most dedicated video game music fans would likely have trouble naming specific tracks, but luckily in Videogame Heardle all you have to guess is the game where it’s from, not the actual title of the song. There is a new puzzle every day, and although I only played the one for today, I can confirm that it is indeed a success.
It’s also fun to trace the creation of the Videogame Heardle. It is described as a clone of Joywave Heardwhile Joywave Heardle says it’s a clone of K-pop ear, and so K-Pop Heardle calls itself a “respectful clone” of Heardle, which it says is a “respectful tribute to Wordle”. This is the longest clone trail since Star Wars Episode 2.
