The New York Times launches a robot that analyzes your Wordle strategy


Internet users are many to complain that the game of letters wordle is particularly difficult since it passed into the hands of the daily on New York Times (NYT), in January 2022.

The game’s rules

The player must find the five-letter word of the day in six tries or less. When a letter is entered and it is not in the target word, it turns grey. However, if it appears in the search word, but it is not in the right place, it turns yellow. It is displayed in green when placed in the right place. Every day a new riddle is posed.

the NYT- who denies having raised the level of difficulty of the game – announced on Twitter Thursday evening that those who wish could rely on the advice of WordleBot (New window)a robot he describes as a daily companion that will tell you how efficient and lucky you have been.

The latter’s site only activates once the word of the day has been solved. He first examines the puzzle, then explains what he would have done differently, if applicable. In particular, he suggests words that would have given better results, or unscrupulously points out those that were useless.

A score from 0 to 100 is then assigned to the player, who can then compare it with the results of other game enthusiasts. This data can in particular give an idea of ​​the difficulty of the puzzle of the day.

WordleBot also puts his own skills to the test, showing the result he would have obtained if he had solved the puzzle of the day himself.

On the web, many have compared WordleBot to the unpopular clippy paperclip, Microsoft Office’s virtual assistant. The latter has a bad reputation because it annoyed Internet users with its explanatory pop-ups in Windows software during the 1990s and early 2000s.
