Lightwood Games has been pretty active on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in the past few months, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon. Today, they announced another game for both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS, called Worcle Worlds. Worcle stands for “words in a circle”, and the best way to describe this game would be “Zuma with letters”.
Worcle Worlds is based on a mobile game from 2011, which will feature some brand new content made exclusively for the console release. That’s where the “Worlds” part of the title comes in: it refers to the Story Mode, which happens to have 10 worlds. There’s now hundreds of missions to complete, with both predefined puzzles and open-ended challenges. As for the graphics, they have been complete overhauled.
As for controls, Worcle Worlds will use the touchscreen (like the original), but there’s also stick controls for those who really do not like toch controls. Here’s some more details about the controls:
- Nintendo 3DS: use the stylus or the circle pad / D-pad to aim;
- Wii U: you can use a Wii Remote (+ Nunchuk), the Classic Controller, or the Wii U Pro Controller. There’s also a 2-player mode using the GamePad, with each player using one of the two sticks.
But that’s not all: Worcle Worlds will also feature mutliplayer, with 2 player battles (where making combos or creating long words will wreak havok in your opponent’s circle). The best thing: you can play against other players online, if you want.
Finally, here’s a teaser trailer and some screenshots:
Worcle Worlds (Wii U / 3DS eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. Our Upcoming Releases page has been updated!
