Word Logic by POWGI releasing on August 18th in EU and NA, trailers

Back in June, Lightwood Games announced they were working on another puzzle game for the Nintendo eShop of both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS, called Word Logic by POWGI. This one includes six different pen-and-paper style word puzzles, which require logic or deduction to be solved.

Here’s the six types of puzzles included in Word Logic by POWGI:

  • 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!
  • Word Ladder – 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!

Today, Lightwood Games uploaded a trailer for both versions of the game (you can find some screenshots in this post!):

Word Logic by POWGI will be released on August 18th in Europe and North America, and will cost $9.99/€7.99/£7.99. If you’re not convinced, a demo version should be available shortly after launch, allowing you to try out the game and its features (such as the touch-screen controls, handwriting recognition (only on Nintendo 3DS), and the leftie mode).
