What is Swiftle?

Swiftle is a Taylor Swift-inspired word song game that is the latest Wordle and Heardle design for all Swifties (Taylor Swift fans) worldwide. This game offers you to listen to a snippet of the song and then show off your song-guessing skills as a loyal Taylor Swift fan.

The game was born as a sibling game to ‘Taylorde’, a word-based guessing game that apparently was an instant hit, but Swifties wanted more than that.

So, since ‘Taylorde’ wasn’t enough, a software engineering student who is also a loyal Taylor Swift fan designed the Swiftle game. The game is presented as the ultimate test and sets a challenge for Swifties to test their knowledge of the pop star’s discography.

The concept of both Swiftle and Heardle is the same, however, with a slight spin.

In addition, Swiftle players have the option to take on the daily challenge, or they can also go back and play past games.
