Love Mastermind, Lingo or Wordle? W*RDS is for you.

Guess the mystery word. Flex your vocabulary and exercise your powers of deduction. Use your wits, trial and error and a logical process of elimination to identify what partially hidden word you’re looking at, using as few guesses as possible.

W*RDS is a puzzle inspired by the classic word game Mastermind, in much the same vein as the TV show Lingo and the New York Times’ daily Wordle challenge. You can up the ante by increasing the length of the word to be guessed and play as often as you like, in English French or Italian. Go it alone or challenge a friend – it’s your call.


W*RDS is free to play. Unlock extra features with in-app purchases from $0.99 – $4.99.


W*RDS requires an iPhone running iOS 14 or newer, or an iPad running iPadOS 14 or newer.
