If you’ve been playing Heardle mundanely, there’s a new twist to the concept available which can multiply the fun. Heardle Decades is the latest Wordle spin-off that music lovers are going gaga over. Here’s everything you need to know about this song-guessing game.
Josh Wardle’s Wordle took the Internet by storm before the New York Times purchased it for a whopping sum of $1 million. Wordle’s insane popularity gave birth to numerous spin-offs and alternatives.
Heardle was born in the same manner. It asked players to hear snippets of a song every day and guess the name of the song in as fewer attempts as possible. Now, Heardle Decades takes the concept to the next level.
What is Heardle Decades?
Heardle Decades is the latest Wordle spin-off that has gone viral. It is basically a song guessing game, like Heardle, but it differentiates songs among different decades, genres, and artists. This means you can guess multiple songs every day.
The game goes by the tagline “Your daily dose of name that tune.” If you have been feeling that Heardle isn’t enough, then Heardle Decades may help you to satisfy that urge of being a truly superior music virtuoso.
There are different decades in this game to choose from, from the 1960s to the 2000s. There are also specific artists such as Duran Duran, Wham, Pet Shop Boys, and George Michael. Moreover, there are genres including Hip Hop as well.
