Words With Freds is just the latest addition to a growing list of games that are Wordle clones, with this one landing on the Switch.


words with freds wordle clone

The excitement around wordle doesn’t seem to be slowing down despite being around for quite a while now. In fact, this enthusiasm has led more than one wordle clones released over the past few weeks, the latest being a Nintendo Switch exclusive.

The free word game, which gives users six attempts to solve a daily word, has been massively popular, especially on social media. In fact, the game was so popular that The New York Times recently bought wordle for an undisclosed amount that is said to be “low seven figures”. There seem to be quite a few developers out there who are hoping they can cash in on the popularity of this game by at least grabbing some attention on their own. The new Nintendo Switch clone is also trying to make money by charging at least some money for its version.

GAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY

RELATED: There’s yet another Pokemon-themed Wordle clone available to play

Words with Freds is the last wordle Clone although it does not rely on word of mouth through online browsers. Instead, this particular game appeared in the Nintendo eShop and is available as a digital download for the Nintendo Switch for $1.


Words With Freds is Wordle Clone available on the Nintendo Switch

It seems that the name of the game is also a nod to another popular word game that has already gained some notoriety thanks to iOS and Google Play users who downloaded Words between friends to their mobile devices. Although the name may be a nod to Words between friendsit is very clearly meant to be considered very similar to wordle given the way the game is played.


The explanation of this wordle clone does not hide the fact that it plays like the original. Users have six chances to guess the “randomly selected word” at the original game. However, it stands to reason that users will be able to guess multiple words per day in the Switch game.

Words with Freds appeared on the Nintendo Digital Store on March 3 and one has to wonder how long it will last. With the New York Times which now financially supports wordlethe company might not take kindly to this clone making money from the idea.

There is a storm brewing…

One of the best arcade shooters of all time, Atari Stormwill come back to life next month, when the hyper-kinetic Storm 4000 is coming to Nintendo Switch. Llamasoft’s compelling sequel will be available to download from Nintendo eShop from March 22.

Storm 4000 is the latest iteration of the legendary shmup series, first designed by Dave Theurer in 1981. Just like the legendary 1994 release from Llamasoft Storm 2000, Storm 4000 retains the series’ signature “in-screen” gameplay, while sprucing up the audio/visual with a psychedelic color palette and bass-enhanced dance soundtrack. The trailer above – which asks you to “Feed Your Head on the Web” and “Eat Electric Death” – showcases the flashy new iteration in all its daytime glory.

For the uninitiated, Storm sees the player controlling a somewhat creepy claw-like ship around a series of strange geometric combat zones, blaster-laden with a variety of enemies as they weave their way through infrastructure. From a design perspective, Storm was light years ahead of its time in 1981, and has frantic, fast-paced, and precise gameplay that’s as engaging today as it was over 40 years ago. If you haven’t checked yet Storm 4000maybe take a look at this port when it arrives on March 22 on Nintendo Switch and the Atari VCS… Yes, it’s out.

Storm 4000 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam).

Other than romantic dinners! On Valentine’s Day, turn on the Nintendo Switch instead and offer a Joy-Con to your partner for a nice multiplayer session, perhaps in a romantic setting: success is guaranteed! Or maybe not? Obviously it depends on the predisposition, but there are still some products that can be particularly suitable for the lovers’ party, whether they are more or less nerd, and then we want to try to give an overview of the best Valentine’s Day games on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

Between multiplayer experiences for two, sentimental atmospheres and love stories, the solutions are varied and those proposed below are only a tiny part of all the possible video games for Nintendo Switch playable for two, or having any connection with subjects. thematic, so the discussion is open on what can be the best. For some reason, here are ten games that could find a good application on Valentine’s Day…. unless much more romantic developments, of course.

Lovers in a dangerous space-time

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime places us precisely in the situation described by the title

With an explicit and particularly themed name, Lovers in a dangerous space-time it features exactly what the title says, which is to say the adventures of a couple struggling with driving a spaceship through environments filled with enemies, obstacles and threats. There’s very little time for romance stories, truth be told: the game is all about coordinated action in managing the different aspects of the ship between navigation, shields, weapons, etc., and it’s easy for you to find you. shouting orders to each other like gruff captains of ships rather than giving each other displays of affection. However, it is easy to glimpse in this strange structure a kind of allegory on the need to collaborate and act in a coordinated way to navigate among a thousand pitfalls: a bit like what happens in real life as a couple, on the other hand. .

untangle two

Unravel Two presents poetic and romantic moments

Unravel Two presents poetic and romantic moments

Good ol’ co-op multiplayer is all it has to offer untangle two, which evolves and fleshes out the concept of the first chapter by inserting the action of the couple as a fundamental element of the new gameplay. The melancholy charm of the sets and the staging itself remains, with these woolly little beings grappling with so many dangers on their long journey, but with the introduction of coordinated action between two badges who must get away with it. go out by associating. The laid back tones and twilight moods of Unravel Two remain easily impressionable and help to create a dreamlike atmosphere that could really be the case for an essentially romantic evening, but some coordination in the movements and also the use of a little is still necessary. gray matter to move forward, so don’t underestimate the challenge.

Wild Hearts of Sayonara

Sayonara Wild Hearts isn't quite a couples experience but it's still very romantic

Sayonara Wild Hearts isn’t quite a couples experience but it’s still very romantic

And now, for something completely different but still related to love, we present to you Wild Hearts of Sayonara, a game that combines music, video representation and rhythm action in a way only great rhythm games can, but maybe even better, or certainly in a different way than what we’ve seen in the past. Here is a heartbroken young woman who doesn’t want to give up on love and is determined to fight for her feelings. She then embarks on a mind-blowing journey of flying through dream scenarios, riding motorcycles, and fighting swords against various gangs and enemies in a bizarre tarot-inspired story. All of this happens to the beat of the music, following the beautiful tracks of what is essentially a true interactive pop album, whose songs correspond to the different levels in a synesthetic mix of video, audio and game controls as rarely have summer. seen recently.

Florence

Moments of couple life in Florence

Moments of couple life in Florence

There are not many video games that talk about love in the most direct way possible, depicting the relationship between a girl and a boy, from the first exciting encounters to the blossoming of the deepest feeling, until ‘with consequences which are also different from those initially foreseen. Focusing exclusively on this is the distinctive element of Florence, in which love is treated with a particular grace: far from affected extremes, the love between Florence and Krish seems truly real and felt, in that it is represented also in a simple and seemingly light way, in everyday situations and common gestures. However, it cannot even be reduced to a mere superficial image, as Florence frames love in a deeper and broader vision, becoming a kind of lighthearted hymn to her life, her growth and her precious teachings.

Haven

Yu and Kai battling Planet Source in Haven

Yu and Kai battling Planet Source in Haven

What could be more romantic than a couple who abandon everything, preferring to live isolated at the edge of space on an unknown planet, to choose love? That’s pretty much the premise of Haven, a very particular action adventure that alternates moments of action with others of more contemplative exploration and direct narration, telling the story of Yu and Kai, a couple who flee their home planet to avoid forced marriages and chooses to live on the Wild Spring so that they can be together, fighting for survival every day. Between elements of survival and cooperative action, Haven also stages a very interesting love story, which develops and consolidates between two boys with strong personalities to be discovered and shaped also through the player’s choices. After all, it is also a reflection on the freedom of choice and the strength of feelings, with which it is possible to challenge the status quo.

Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp XXL

Monster Prom 2 puts us in the difficult task of winning a partner

Monster Prom 2 puts us in the difficult task of winning a partner

The school dance isn’t really a fundamental part of the Italian student experience, but we’re so used to seeing it in American movies and TV series that we’ve now made it part of our popular culture, so a game focused on finding the right partner for that. event can be quite close to the heart. On the other hand what Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp XXL the staging is not quite a classic “prom night” film, since in this case it is about monsters: fascinating however, even sexy according to trends, but always characters really outside the traditional patterns and for this reason even more interesting. The question is simple: we have three weeks to choose and seduce our partner to go to prom as a couple in a really special kind of dating simulation, which can also be played in multiplayer for up to 4 players.

Direct link to Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp XXL on the Nintendo eShop

Boyfriend’s Dungeon

Another strictly single-player experience that seems fair to include in this list of games with a romantic profile: Boyfriend’s Dungeon, a title that indeed amazed everyone for the concept on which it is based. In fact, how about a game that allows us to live real love stories between the protagonist and his weapon? Finally, a relationship that may have remained latent and hidden for years in video game history, has always been a fundamental part of any action structure or RPG, is clearly expressed. However, we wouldn’t have expected an introspective development like the one emerging from this weird dungeon crawler with dating sim elements. After choosing the sex and characteristics of the protagonist, we find ourselves undertaking various quests in that of “Verona Beach”, a place halfway between glamor and fantasy, with the use of various weapons that trigger an ever greater feeling strong in their comparisons.

SnipperClips

Collaboration is key at SnipperClips

Collaboration is key at SnipperClips

Returning to the purest and most essential multiplayer, as can be the one in pairs, we could not resist including SnipperClips in this selection. The idea is seemingly simple but it leaves room for situations that can become complex, thanks to the creativity with which the levels can be tackled: in SnipperClips two tabs are controlled that can intersect, overlap and change shape accordingly. Collaborating with each other, these two strange creatures must try to achieve various objectives, taking advantage of the possibility of changing profiles and interacting with each other and with the elements of the scenario. Here too, harmony is a basic element, but beyond the pleasure derived from the game, the dialogues that can emerge during the gameplay, giving each other instructions, can be real masterpieces.

Just dance 2022

Couple dancing and psychedelia are the founding elements of Just Dance 2022

Couple dancing and psychedelia are the founding elements of Just Dance 2022

If you feel in the mood to dance, Just dance 2022 it’s obviously the best choice for Valentine’s Day, as long as you’re not afraid to jeopardize your dignity. Among the 40 songs in the catalog we really find a bit of everything, although obviously dancing dominates, so don’t expect medium-sized party glasses because here there is a lot of hassle and sweat. However, it’s hard not to be in a good mood while playing Just Dance 2022, and partner dancing is an absolute must for the series, as well as a virtually universal pastime. So if the evening is more about carefree fun and body language than thinking about maximum systems, the choice is clear: insert the Ubisoft rhythm game cartridge (in case one of the thousand previous editions is suitable too) and kick off the dances.

Ars-Technica

It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the web’s best deals includes a good price on Amazon’s newest Kindle Paperwhite, as the e-reader is currently down $110 at various retailers. That’s $30 off Amazon’s MSRP and the second-lowest price we’ve tracked. The only time we saw the device drop lower was around Black Friday when it was available for $5 less. Amazon includes three months of its Kindle Unlimited e-book service as part of the deal, but be aware that this will be set to auto-renew by default.

We gave the latest Kindle Paperwhite a rave review when it was released last year. Compared to its predecessor, it adds a more spacious screen (now at 6.8 inches, up from six), a USB-C port, better front lighting, more responsive performance and improved battery life (which Amazon estimates at around 10 weeks per load). Like the last model, it’s waterproof (with an IPX8 rating) and it can connect to Bluetooth headphones and speakers to play audiobooks. And like all Kindles, it still has access to a massive library of things to read. It’s a bit larger than the last model, and if you just don’t want to lock yourself into Amazon’s ecosystem, Kobo’s Clara HD is a decent alternative (albeit without waterproofing or Bluetooth) that’s also in sale to date. But for most people, the Paperwhite is the e-reader with the best combination of features and value.

That said, it’s worth noting that the Kids version of the Kindle Paperwhite is also on sale for $10 more. Although this variant is aimed at children, it has all the same features as the standard Paperwhite, plus a case, a longer warranty (two years instead of one) and, most importantly, no ads on its lock screen or phone. default home page. (The latter is a feature that costs $20 more on the standard, ad-supported model.) If you’re buying specifically for a young child, the standard Kindle Kids e-reader is probably a better value, but older readers are fine with it. paying a little more might want to consider this model instead.

Amazon is also selling a Signature Edition of the Paperwhite that adds Qi wireless charging, 32GB of storage space (compared to the standard model’s 8GB), and auto-adjusting backlighting. This model has sunk to a new low of $145, but for the most part its improvements are more “nice to have” than “essential”.

Besides Kindles, our roundup of deals also includes a few deals on the Nintendo Switch. Amazon Prime members can take $20 off Amazon subsidiary Woot’s console, while Nintendo itself has the bundle we saw on Black Friday, which includes a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of the company’s Switch Online service with the console at no additional cost.

These aren’t particularly huge discounts, and they only apply to the standard version of the console, not the new Switch OLED. The latter has been harder to find in stock, but it adds a bigger, snappier display, doubles the internal storage, an improved hinge, and other upgrades for $350. Still, any sort of console deal has been rare lately, so if you’re looking to buy your first Switch and don’t want to spare the extra cash for the OLED model, these deals are worth noting.

Elsewhere, we’ve got deals on other recommended gadgets and gear, including Google’s Chromecast, Apple’s AirPods Pro, Amazon’s Fire HD 8 tablets and more. You can check out our full list below.

The Nintendo Switch has an incredibly strong library of games, many of which are worth recommending. For our absolute 10 favorite games, however, you can check out the list below. It’s a list that we’ll update as often as the games are worth releasing. We’ll be releasing games and adding new ones as the Switch library grows.

Please note that although the list below contains 10 entries, we don’t actually rank them – if a game has made it this far (and managed to stay here) it’s a must-play game, period. Thus, we will list the entries in reverse chronological order. In addition, you will find an overview of previous entries at the bottom of the list. While these titles have been hustled for bigger and better experiences, they’re still great games in their own right and worth exploring if you’re already up to date with the latest hits.

Here are Game Informer’s picks for the 10 best games on Switch.


Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Released: January 28, 2022

Pokémon Legends: Arceus represents the biggest change of pace for the long-running franchise. Set in an older version of Sinnoh, you’re tasked with exploring a vast world to complete the first Pokédex. Although it’s not a true open world, the feeling of freedom is still liberating, as is the less restrictive battle system where players can freely sneak, challenge, and even evade Pokemon. We loved capturing never-before-seen versions of our favorite pocket monsters, and a host of side quests, as well as an engaging main narrative, kept us glued to our Switch screens. Pokémon Legends: Arceus has its flaws, but it represents a solid first step towards what we hope will be the start of a new series. | Our opinion


Metroid Dread

Released: October 8, 2021

Metroid fans have been begging Nintendo for an all-new 2D Metroid adventure for nearly two decades. Luckily, when Nintendo finally delivered, it didn’t disappoint. As the name suggests, Dread is a tense experience, full of tough boss fights and deadly robots that doggedly pursue Samus through the various biomes of planet ZDR. Metroid’s classic exploration-based platforming remains intact, and we’ve been eagerly researching new upgrades like the Ghost Cloak and Spider Magnet. The 100% run ended too quickly, but we can’t wait to see what Dread’s big story means for the future of the series. | Our opinion


Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

Released: February 12, 2021

Re-releases rarely capture our full attention these days, but the Wii U’s 4-player Mario title was so joyful and fun that we couldn’t resist returning for the Switch port. As if that weren’t enough, Nintendo has also included an all-new single-player campaign titled Bowser’s Fury. In this standalone experience, Mario travels across Lake Lapcat, completing various platforming challenges to collect Cat Shines. Bowser’s Fury’s larger, open design is incredibly refreshing for a Mario experience, and we loved how each act ends in a Kaiju-sized boss battle. | Our opinion


Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Released: March 20, 2020

Tranquil, low-stress Animal Crossing: New Horizons came at just the right time in the world. As the news cycle gets more tumultuous since 2020, Animal Crossing: New Horizons offers refuge in the form of a virtual tropical island. Building and customizing your home and island however you see fit is hugely rewarding, as New Horizons features a fun daily loop filled with objectives and rewards. | Our opinion


Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Released: July 26, 2019

The Fire Emblem series has built a cult following across handheld platforms in recent years, but with Three Houses, the turn-based strategy series is blasting onto TVs again in the best possible way. With exceptional strategic gameplay, a fun story to interact with and influence, and multiple paths to travel through the narrative, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is one of the best strategy games available today. | Our opinion


Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Released: December 7, 2018

A crossover event two decades in the making, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate represents the series in its most realized form. Containing superb combat mechanics, a terrific suite of modes to play, and a roster of fighters that features every character from the series’ history and more, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is anything but an essential title for the Switch. | Our opinion


Super Mario Odyssey

Released: October 27, 2017

Every Nintendo console should have at least one fantastic Mario platformer, and the Switch is no exception. Mario Odyssey was released a few months after console launch and it hits all the Mario boxes needed to be considered a classic, plus some surprising new ones. It’s whimsical, has perfect controls, tons to discover, and features a town level where all humans are of normal proportions while Mario runs around as his little cartoon character. It’s a weird adventure and a must-have for Switch owners. | Our opinion


Stardew Valley

Released: October 5, 2017

Harvest Moon’s future is unclear and its recent past is disappointing. Luckily, Stardew Valley exists and improves on nearly every mechanic the series popularized. Running a farm may seem like a chore, but in Stardew Valley it’s a joy. Watching your crops grow over time and selling them for profit while getting to know the townspeople makes for an experience that’s hard to put down. Adding Switch portability only enhances the experience. | Our opinion on the PC version


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Released: April 28, 2017

Much more than just a port of the excellent Mario Kart 8 for Wii U, Deluxe includes all the game’s DLC (tracks, drivers and additional cars) and Battle mode, which was curiously absent from the original version. Playing Mario Kart on split screen is always a hit, and having a version of the game with two controllers that you can take anywhere makes it the perfect showcase for the Switch. | Our opinion


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Released: March 3, 2017

We’re not exaggerating when we say The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games ever made. We gave it the rare 10/10 in our review and awarded it our 2017 Game of the Year award because it sets a new high standard for open-world video games. Being able to go anywhere on the map has never been truer than in Breath of the Wild and it’s also filled with the kind of excellent puzzle design you’ve come to expect from a Zelda experience. It’s a journey you won’t soon forget and optional DLC packs add additional challenges and new items worth chasing in the overworld. | Our opinion


Games considered for this list that have not been selected or removed since this article was originally published: Pokémon Sword & Shield, Hollow Knight, Fortnite, Celeste, Golf Story, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Splatoon 2, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Doom, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Sonic Mania, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition, and recent classics that have been ported, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, Inside, and Axiom Verge. They’re still great games, so give them a try too!

New Apple AirPods Pro noise-canceling headphones

Apple AirPods Pro Noise Canceling Headphones

New MagSafe model

Apple AirPods Pro Noise Cancellation Listeners

If you regret not buying the Airpods Pro on Black Friday, here’s your chance to get it today for the same price. This is the latest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro are considered one of the best noise-canceling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. Noise cancellation is rated as even better than the Bose Quietcomfort due to the natural noise isolation design of the in-ear headphones. If isolation and sound quality are of utmost importance to you, it’s easily worth the upgrade over the AirPods 3.

Apple AirPods 2 for $99.99

Apple AirPods (2nd generation)

Pick up a pair of Apple AirPods 2 Wireless Headphones at the lowest price we’ve ever seen. These AirPods include a charging case that you plug in via USB Type-C, not the “wireless” charger that supports Qi charging. You can get it with a wireless charging case for an extra $50, but it’s definitely not worth it; few people actually use the wireless charging feature and inductive charging is inherently much slower.

The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition in 4K

The Lord of the Rings Expanded and Theatrical 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Set

Extended and Theatrical 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray The Lord of the Rings Together

This long-awaited Lord of the Rings 4K box set was released in December 2020 for the hefty price tag of $99.99. As of today, the price is down to $57.33, the lowest we’ve ever seen for this set and a few dollars cheaper than Black Friday. This set includes 4K Ultra HD and digital versions of the Theatrical and Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Expanded Editions add a total of 168 minutes of bonus footage that fleshes out Middle-earth much more than the original theatrical cuts.

Gloomhaven: Jaw of the Lion Board Game

Gloomhaven: Jaws of The Lion Board Game

This is by far the lowest price ever seen on Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion (the previous price was $35). It is a popular standalone cooperative role-playing game from Cephalofair Games. It offers a gameplay experience similar to the original Gloomhaven game and much more intimidating, but for casual gamers; this means a simpler set of rules, a more extensive tutorial, and fewer overall pieces on the board. a. It is currently rated 8.7/10 on BoardGameGeek.

Inin Games and BBG Entertainment have announced that the boxed edition of Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection for Nintendo Switch is now available in North America.

rock dash is a forgotten classic. It was a groundbreaking interactive game when it was originally released in 1984, at the start of the era of computer and home video games. In fact, it’s also revolutionary in the literal sense since it’s a ‘dig and gather’ action-puzzle game that helped establish its own genre. Rockford must be guided through tunnels while gathering gems in order to reach the exit within a limited amount of time while avoiding various kinds of deadly beasts and dangerous obstacles.

For nearly four decades, rock dash and its countless successors have thrilled and challenged casual and serious gamers of all ages. The franchise has been ported to NES, Nintendo Gameboy, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, and even Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox after its first release.

A complete collection

Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection includes two games: Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary and Boulder Dash Deluxe, each with nearly 400 new levels. As Rockford, the game’s main character, you will travel through a variety of other realms. Each planet has 20 stages, each with its own set of opponents, graphics and animations. Dig through the sand to traverse caves and manipulate the environment to your advantage.

Boulder Dash Ultimate Collection

This surprising return of one of the oldest brands in video games is now available for the Nintendo Switch in select North American stores. European players who want to get their hands on this fantastic collection will be able to do so from February 18th.
