Software Developer Brings Wordle to Nokia N-Gage


While Wordle started as a small game designed for one person, it quickly became one of the most popular games on the planet. Every day players log in to try to guess the answer of the day in as few tries as possible, but until now it only worked on smartphones.

However, the software developer @mupfdev announced today that it had successfully built a successful port of Wordle for the Nokia N-Gage, a mobile that Nokia launched in 2003 with the aim of entering the hybrid handheld console market. For the few people who still own or use an N-Gage today, it opens a portal to playing not just a modern game on the device, but one that is at the height of its popularity.

At the time of writing, it is unclear if this version of the game will receive daily updates with new words. We’ve contacted the creator to confirm, but we believe this version won’t get new words like the official version does, and instead is based on all the words used in Wordle to date.

@mupfdev also included a link to a github repository where anyone can download the game to run on their N-Gage. The project was compiled using SDL, which means other developers could use it as a base to create ports for other platforms.
