One good way to assess a game’s quality is to look at how popular it is. Of course, it isn’t an infallible system since a publisher could just invest a lot in marketing, but it’s usually a good sign that a game is fun and engaging.

So with that in mind, here are some of the most popular mobile games of 2022.

Wordle

Wordle exploded in popularity back in late 2021. It’s a simple word game that was created by a Welsh software engineer named Josh Wardle, it was from these two facts that it got its name.

Every day, users are given a new five-letter word that they have to try and guess. It’s very simple but went viral thanks to the fact that it allows you to share your success on social media without revealing the word to others and spoiling it for them.

You don’t need an app to play Wordle, you just simply navigate to the game on the New York Times website. You can then start typing your guesses, after each try, the letters will change colour to either grey, green, or yellow. Green means the letter is correct and in the right place, yellow means that a letter is correct but in the wrong position, while grey shows letters that are not used anywhere in the word.

Players then have to use this feedback to guess another word to get more clues until they get it right.

Although the total number of players has dipped a little, Wordle remains one of the most popular games of 2022.
