No, it’s not a wordle clone. It’s a Heardle clone. A clone of one wordle clone. A wordle clone cloneYou could say.
Heardle must be one of my favorites wordle benefits among the many that exist, apart from High score day (which now has themes for each tower, very cool!). While some of the songs are pretty predictable, there were plenty of tracks I’ve never heard in my 346 years of living on this planet as an undead bog witch.
Like High score day played on the nature of wordle to keep us guessing five games based on screenshots, we now have a new game that plays on the nature of Heardle (which plays on the nature of wordle, but is farther from the other clones) in the aptly named Heardle video game.
plays the video game. based on the code of @joywavez and the original @Heardle_app. still up to date but there are over a month of songs in it, give it a try and tell your friends why not.https://t.co/2UqSJ2SFgh

If you consider yourself a video game music enthusiast, then Heardle video game is the game for you. Made by g0m and based on code from the original clone, every day brings a new song from a video game soundtrack. What makes this interpretation a bit easier is that you’re not supposed to guess the exact song in a game, but rather which game the song is from.
Considering how iconic some video game soundtracks are, this really feels like a natural progression. I could go on and on about the talent it takes to make music that not only represents a game, but can also sit comfortably in the background without being distracting and looping without being boring. However, that’s a thread for another time.
something special that Heardle video game did for me personally that i did not find with the regular Heardle was the moment I got the song right, I immediately opened up the full video game soundtrack and played it. Video game music is just different.
