Framed might be right for you if you like the idea behind Heardle but are more of a movie buff than a music expert.
You get six chances to guess the day's answer in Framed, just like in Wordle. But instead of trying to guess a word, you try to guess the name of a movie.
Framed shows you a frame from the film of the day. You get a second chance if you get the answer wrong, and so on until you get your sixth chance. There are no hints provided on how close your incorrect answers are to the correct ones, unlike in Wordle. But as you run out of guesses, the chosen film frames become a bit more clear. Even if a Framed game begins with a shot you haven't seen before, later images will often feature iconic shots or even the main character from the film.
While you type a film title, the game will suggest movies to make sure you don't misspell anything. Previous Framed answers have included Knives Out, Catch Me If You Can, 12 Years A Slave, and today's shambolic answer, Howl's Moving Castle.
Framed does not appear to focus on one type of movie, so the guessing game could include anything from action blockbusters to art-house dramas. Even though Framed is not much like the game it is based on, it is still a good game in its own right and worth playing for that reason.
Framed is the latest in a long line of Wordle clones that have come out since the New York Times bought the original game. In the past few months, Heardle (for music fans), Lewdle (definitely not safe for work), and Quordle (four Wordles at once) have all made quizzes. You now have a new game to play when you wake up.
