Spellie is a fun version of Wordle that you can show to your elementary-aged child. Spellie is made by a Vancouver father who compiled a list of words based on the number of words his 5-year-old daughter knows.
Spellie has 3 different levels of difficulty built in, so it can be played by both young kids who are just starting to play word games and older kids with a bigger vocabulary.
The letters can also be typed in any order, which is a great feature. For example, if your child has a green G in the third spot, they can click on that circle and type G first. This makes it easier for them to imagine possible solutions when they try again. Also, the keyboard at the bottom of the screen doesn't look like a keyboard. Instead, the letters are listed in alphabetical order (which is easier for most kids but a little confusing for adult players).
Lastly, the game gives you emojis when you guess certain words, even if they aren't the answer to the puzzle. So, if you guess SCORE, you get the 100 emoji to add to your collection, which you can see by clicking on the gallery icon next to settings.
Even though it may look like other word games, this one is different in a few ways that were made with young spellers in mind. These are some of the unique features of Spellie:
Spellie is purely inspired by Wordle, but it was developed in a completely different way and is more geared towards kids. Have fun!
