Now and then, we get engaging online word games on the web. Some are simple while others are exciting and explorative. One such game is the World Wide Web Hunt. It’s a daily online riddle game that lets you go on a scavenger hunt for answers across the internet to complete the puzzle of the day.
According to the creators, the game is a mix of two online word games which are Notpron and Wordle. While Notpron is a riddle game, Wordle is a puzzle game. World Wide Web Hunt is a cross between the two genres wherein you have to understand the riddle to look for pieces of the answer.
Where to look for answers?
The answers to the game require two things: knowledge of popular culture and a web search. The first riddle would be the key to unlocking the puzzle. Let’s say that the theme for the day is TV shows. So the first riddle is about the name of the show. If the answer and spelling is correct, the game leads to the second riddle which would be about the website of the TV show.
The second riddle comprises clues that help find answers on the website. This is where most of the time is spent hunting for the answers. The riddles are well-crafted so it should not be that hard to find answers.
Social media interaction and longevity of the website
The website also has a Discord community where people can discuss the results and help each other find answers. After the growing popularity of Wordle, the creators started working on this idea this February. By September, they were able to launch the website after testing it on Discord.
Currently, the creators don’t have any plans to monetize this website through a PC or a mobile application. However, they have plans to host special events online with harder challenges. In the future, they will create a subscription or a sign-up system so that people can pay and play the archived puzzles.
