Despite being based on the same idea as Wordle, Waffle did not exactly follow in the footsteps of the former when developing the game. Instead of asking players to enter letters to solve the words, Waffle places the letters on a grid. From there, players must rearrange those letters to form words, both horizontally and vertically. In a similar move to Wordle, Waffle has also designated different colored tiles to specify whether a letter is in its correct position or needs to be moved.
According to the rules, green means the correct position. Yellow means that the letter belongs to the word but in a different position. Because it is a grid, there is a high chance that a yellow tile will appear in one of the corners. When that happens, it means that the letter could belong to the word horizontal or vertical. The uncertainty that comes with such situations, which makes the idiom “pushed into a corner” a reality, is what makes Waffle stand out from his competition.
With only 15 possible moves to solve all six words, deciding on the correct letter placement can be the difference between victory and defeat. Completing the puzzle with the remaining moves will earn you stars. The fewest number of moves a puzzle can be solved in is 10, therefore the most stars you can earn in one day is five.
