V1.1 version has a minor fix to the Easter Egg code.
Let me introduce you to my friend Turdle the Turtle. He's a bit of a Billy-No-Mates, but look at him. Still got a smile..... but do you know why he's smiling? Well, his favourite game is Wordle and the gang at Megastyle have decided to do their 'shit take' on Wordle and create a game just for Turdle the Turtle to cheer him up.
He has one good friend, Roysterini. Nobody else can put up with Turdle cos he stinks.
Why don't you, yes you, a trusty C64 fan, show your love for Turdle by playing the game in his name?
Just like Wordle, the game we all love and adore....the game we love to see cascading through our Twitter timelines.... Turdle is a word game where you get 6 chances to guess the random word.
This is a bit different though.
Yes it is.
In Turdle, all words are related to, well..... shit in one way or another, either literally or loosely. Euphemisms, slang, related words and all that malarky.
Unlike Wordle though, Turdle is a highscore chaser. You don't just get one shit shot a day, you can keep going and try to beat your best score.
Turdle initially started as a silly idea for the RESET 4Kb Craptastic Compo for C64, but I decided to embellish on it a little and release it now, while there's still steam rising off it.
So, some extra flourishes were added and lovely music/sfx make by our talented Magnar. We hope you enjoy this stinky game. :P
What are the coloured letters all about? Well, for those unfamiliar with Wordle, I'm glad you asked.
Enter 5 letters and a GREEN letter means it is a correct letter in the correct place.
A BLUE letter is a correct letter, but in the wrong place.
A GREY letter is a letter that is not used in the guess word.
Get ALL GREEN to complete a word successfully!
CHASE A HIGH SCORE!
UPDATE: This is my current best. (1490)

A big thanks to Roger Bacon (@RogB_UK) for the extra inspired words of turdacity.
A huge shout out to a good friend, Graham Axten(@zxmutant64) for being a good egg and always great support.
Can you find the hidden Easter Eggs in the game? Turdle might have a thing or two to say to some.
