Lightwood games brings new word puzzle game – in fact six of them! – to Nintendo 3DSTM and Wii UTM

Lightwood Games is excited to announce that “Word Puzzles by POWGI” is now available on the Nintendo eShop for both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

Users who buy the game on one platform can also download it for free on another with the same Nintendo Network ID.

The game is a compendium of six different pen-and-paper style word puzzles which are solved using the stylus and intuitive touch-screen controls.

Featuring hundreds of expertly hand-crafted word puzzles, and with a firm focus on the content, it’s a no-fluff puzzle variety pack that’s ready to play whenever you are.

As well as solving the included puzzle content, players can unlock special, custom content by touching an amiibo™. Each figure generates a unique personalised puzzle containing its nickname.

The puzzles included are:

Word Maze – Like a wiggly word search! Find the words and solve the maze!

Mixups – A fiendishly difficult anagram puzzle with three words all jumbled together!

One Word – The word search puzzle where there’s only one word to find!

Flowers – Plant pairs of letters around the flower to grow six words with a common middle!

Circles – Three overlapping circles hide three connected words. Find the missing letter to unscramble them all!

Crossovers – Crossword puzzles with only one letter missing, which come together to solve a clue!
