Clones of Popular ‘Wordle’ Game Flooding App Store, Including One Charging $30 Per Year [Updated]

If you’re a regular internet user you’ve probably heard of popular web-based daily guessing game Wordle, created by Josh Wardle.
The game, which is entirely free to play, was introduced last fall and has been spreading like wildfire.
Wordle asks players to guess a five letter word by identifying which letters are in the word and are located in the right location.
Players get six guesses per day, and there’s a single daily puzzle for everyone.

The website for the game tracks each person’s number of wins, and provides an easily shareable graphic, which has contributed to its popularity.
Josh Wardle has said that Wordle will remain ad-free and unmonetized, but because it’s a web app, shady iOS developers have decided to create app versions to capitalize on the game’s success.
