5. Wordle in Bahasa Melayu
Think you know your Malay words? Try this Wordle in Malay! The interface looks similar to the original Wordle.
6. Pinyin Cheng Yu
Another one that’s all about Chinese idioms! But this one uses Hanyu Pinyin for guessing, in my view, this is more challenging. Perhaps this would work better for those who are less familiar with Chinese Characters.
