Today's Wordle #603 Answer, Hints and Clues for Sunday, February 12 Game

Wordle is a popular word puzzle game that gained a following of millions within months of it being launched in October 2021.

An explanation for Wordle's sudden popularity could be due to the puzzle game's simplicity. The rules are simple, everyday players need to work out a new five-letter word within six attempts or fewer.

Tiles turn green if you put the letter in the correct place, while a yellow square indicates that the letter is in the word but in the wrong place.

A gray tile means that the player has selected a letter that is not in the answer at all and that they need to try again.

Creator Josh Wardle told Newsweek in January 2022 that despite having invented Wordle he still struggles with the game.

He said: "Well, I did create Wordle and I'm not very good at it, so there's your answer! I'm afraid I'm not really the best.

"[My partner] and I play it on the couch together each morning. She will consistently get it in three goes, which is way, way better than I can ever hope to achieve. I normally need at least 4 or 5 attempts."

Wardle went on to sell Wordle to the New York Times for an undisclosed seven-figure fee. The game remains free to play via the publication's website.

Wordle's popularity has inspired several other online puzzle games, including Worldle for geography fans and Nerdle for math enthusiasts.
