Since the New York Times purchased the original version of Wordle, numerous imitations have cropped up, the most recent being Framed. As with Wordle, Framed gives you six tries to correctly guess the daily answer. A game similar to "Guess That Word," only you're attempting to identify a film title.
Framed presents a still from the featured film. If you get the question incorrectly the first time, you'll get five more tries. Unlike Wordle, where you can see how close your guesses are to the correct ones, here you get no such feedback. The selected film stills become increasingly discernible, though, as your supply of guesses dwindles. It's likely that following photographs in a Framed game will show recognizable scenes or even the film's protagonist, even if the game opens with a shot you haven't seen before.
You can avoid misspelling a movie title by playing this game, which will propose films as you type. Howl's Moving Castle is today's jumbled Framed answer; previous examples include Knives Out, Catch Me If You Can, and 12 Years a Slave.
Given that Framed does not seem to specialize in any particular genre, the guessing game might involve anything from action blockbusters to art house dramas. You shouldn't expect much from Framed in terms of similarities to the original game, but you should play it nevertheless because it stands on its own as an enjoyable experience.
