Posted on January 11, 2016 by Jason Nason

Word Puzzles by POWGI will be released soon for the 3DS and has just been announced for the Wii U as well.

Word Puzzles by POWGI contains six different pen-and-paper style word puzzles which are solved using the stylus and touch-screen controls. Featuring hundreds of 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 personalized puzzle containing its nickname. Every amiibo is supported in the release, including the Animal Crossing amiibo cards.

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!

Word Games are Lightwood’s specialty. It is the developer behind Word Party, a series of competitive word puzzle mini-games, for Wii U, which was released in November. They also released Word Search by POWGI for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U in April 2015.
