Shobdle was developed to honor International Mother Language Day - 2022.
Shobdle is a Bengali version of Wordle, the internet’s trendiest game now. In 2022, Wordle became the craze of the online world, drawing in millions of players daily. The game was developed by Josh Wardle in October, 2021. This game was breaking internet traffic in 2022 because of its 5-minute brain teaser strategy. Devs Core, a software company based in Bangladesh, developed Shobdle to honor the International Mother Language Day – 2022.
How do you play Shobdle?
Shobdle gives you 7 chances to guess a Bengali word, the word of the day. The word has to be a word that fits in 4 blocks. There are 5 different colors to let you know how close your guess is. After each try, the blocks change color to either green (correct letter/consonant cluster/diacritics combo, correct block), yellow (correct letter/consonant cluster/diacritics combo, incorrect block), blue (some part of the letter/consonant cluster/diacritics combo is incorrect, correct block), pink (some part of the letter/consonant cluster/diacritics combo is incorrect, incorrect block), or black (not in the word). Once successfully completed, the player can share the results as a text of emoji squares copying it directly from the share option.
Players select the letters of the Bengali alphabet from the virtual keyboard and when they are done with all 4 tiles press Enter. The game checks if the word matches with the word of the day or not. If you can match the word within those 7 chances then you win.
This game can be played by people of all ages. Even a child can play this game. There is no age restriction. So, if a person can read and write Bengali, she/he can play this game, though you should keep it in mind that guessing Bengali words can be quite challenging.
