League of Legends players have a new way to test their knowledge of the game with LoLdle, a Wordle-inspired guessing game developed by Reddit user Pimeko. The game features four modes that challenge players to guess the name of a champion, based on their properties, quotes, abilities, or splash art.
LoLdle draws inspiration from Wordle, a popular web-based word guessing game created by software engineer Josh Wardle. In Wordle, players have to guess a five-letter word within six tries, making it an easy and accessible game that has gone viral since its publication. LoLdle takes this concept and applies it to League of Legends and its expansive universe, using data provided by League of Legends Fandom.
In Classic mode, players have to type in the name of a champion and are given specific properties as clues, such as the champion’s gender, positions played in, species, resource used, range type, release year, and origin. The tiles change color to indicate how close the guess was to the champion, with green indicating an exact match, orange denoting a partial match, and red indicating no overlap between the guess and the property.
The other three modes are based on in-game quotes, champion abilities, and cropped sections of splash art, respectively. All modes are designed to keep players engaged and test their knowledge of the game in different ways.
LoLdle is a fan-made project and is not affiliated with Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends. However, it has been well received by the community, who appreciate its unique approach to testing their knowledge of the game. While there have been other League of Legends-based Wordle-type games like Yordle, LoLdle’s different modes make it stand out from the rest.
