student, climber, programmer


Like many other programmers, after playing the viral game “Wordle” I knew I had to make my own rendition in order to bypass the “1 game a day” restriction in the original game. The rules to the game are the same as the original. Guess any 5 letter word, and the game will give feedback on your guess based on each letter’s relation to the randomly chosen word. A green square means that the letter is in the correct spot, a yellow square means the letter is in the word but in the wrong spot, and a grey square means that the letter is not in the word. This project was my first time using a graphics library in Python. Feel free to download the project via my GitHub and have fun!

* This project is still a work in progress, so all elements may not work as intended when run.
** This preview may not include the full project. All files are uploaded to my GitHub.
