Quick little project I threw together in an afternoon based off the popular web game Wordle by Josh Wardle.
Since the game is so simple, it should run on most MS-DOS compatible systems. I tested this on a 33MHz 486 and a 4.77MHz 8088 with no issue. The game can even be played with a monochrome monitor with the /mono switch!
The game is written and compiled with QuickBASIC PDS 7.1, but should compile with QuickBASIC 4.5 just as well.Download (34,125 bytes)

Guess the word in 6 tries or less.
The guess is only accepted if it is a valid 5 letter word in the WorDOSle dictionary.
After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word.
A new random word is selected every time you play!
