Marvel Wordle: A Daily Puzzle for Superheroes

Wordle, the addictive word-guessing game that has taken the internet by storm, has a new twist: Marvel Wordle! Imagine combining your love for superheroes with the challenge of word puzzles. In this article, we’ll dive into the fascinating world of Marvel Wordle, explore its origins, gameplay, and why it’s capturing the attention of both word enthusiasts and comic book fans.

Origins and Inspiration

Marvel Wordle is an open-source clone of the immensely popular online game Wordle. Like many others around the world, I was intrigued by the signature green, yellow, and white squares popping up on social media and websites. After a few days of playing the original Wordle, I decided to embark on a mission: to recreate it in React!

How It Works

  1. The Basics: If you’re new to Wordle, here’s how it works. Each day, a new five-letter word is generated. Your task is to guess the word within six attempts. After each guess, you receive feedback on which letters are correct and in the right position.
  2. Marvel Twist: In Marvel Wordle, the challenge is to guess superhero-related words. From “Avengers” to “Wolverine,” you’ll encounter iconic names from the Marvel universe. It’s a delightful blend of wordplay and fandom.
  3. Word List: The list of words is stored right in the game, just like the original Wordle. As you guess, the game reveals whether your chosen letters are part of the word. The word array index increments each day, ensuring a fresh puzzle every 24 hours.

Building Marvel Wordle

  • Tech Stack: I used React, Typescript, and Tailwind CSS to create Marvel Wordle. React allowed me to componentize every part of the game, from keys to letter cells. Typescript ensured type safety for accurate game functionality.
  • Tailwind UI: I leveraged Tailwind UI’s headless package to build modals and notifications. These simple popups explain how to play, celebrate victories, and handle invalid words.
  • Design Decisions: The game’s design mirrors the original Wordle, with a clean interface and intuitive gameplay. The Marvel theme adds an exciting layer for fans.
