Heardle is Wordle crossed with Name That Tune

(Pocket-lint) – Wordle may not be the latest news anymore, but the hit word game is still going strong, as evidenced by the number of people sharing their results every day on social media.
There have been countless different spin-off games created by ardent fans of its guessing format, but one of the newest has recently gained popularity – Heardle.
Simply put, it’s Wordle but for music. Rather than trying to guess a five-letter word, you have six guesses to determine the song whose intro you’re listening to.
To replace the feeling of getting more letters from previous guesses, each time you get it wrong, you’ll have about a second of music to listen to, which will help you figure out the melody.
It works great and will be very familiar to anyone who enjoyed the Intros trick on Never Mind the Buzzcocks here in the UK, or played Name That Tune.
Of course, even more so than Wordle (which is only limited by your vocabulary), you’re a little sunk every day if you just never heard the song being played, but part of the fun is testing the range of your taste in music can offer.
When you get it right, though, it underscores how iconic a song’s intro can truly be, and how recognizable the first second of a classic is.
