Word Logic by POWGI launched on 3DS and Wii U

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

This new POWGI puzzle compendium contains six different pen-and-paper style word puzzles, each of which requires some degree of logic or deduction to solve.

As usual, Lightwood has placed the focus firmly on the content with intuitive touch-screen controls and – on Nintendo 3DS – handwriting recognition. To ensure the game never gets in the way of the puzzle, both versions include a “lefty mode”, to avoid players blocking the screen with their stylus hand.

The puzzles included are:

Kriss Kross – The classic word-fit puzzle. Place words into the grid using their length as a guide, and using logic to make sure everything overlaps correctly!

Ladders – Make new words by changing one letter at a time. Can you turn one word into another in a limited number of steps?

Crypto – A cipher puzzle (also known as a cryptogram) which reveals a quote when you crack the code!

Word Sudoku – Place nine letters according to usual sudoku rules. As an extra clue, one row or column will spell a word.

Gaps – Several words have one letter missing. Deduce the correct letter to fill in the gaps and spell a new word!

Wordsweeper – Drawing inspiration from Minesweeper, the clues tell you which letters can be placed in an adjacent square. It’s a crossword-style puzzle solved using logic!

This collection of POWGI puzzles is the most challenging yet, with a total of 720 puzzles and two brand new games – Gaps and Wordsweeper – which are exclusive to POWGI.

To help players begin to solve unfamiliar puzzles, the developers have produced a series of “how to play” videos, which have been shared on Miiverse and posted to their YouTube channel.

Also new in Word Logic by POWGI is the ability to save progress mid-puzzle, allowing players to take a break from a complex Word Sudoku puzzle, for example, and continue it at another time.

Word Games are Lightwood’s speciality and this is their third collaboration with POWGI for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Word Search by POWGI was released in April 2015, followed by Word Puzzles by POWGI in February 2016.
