Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games is thrilled to announce the release of Word Wheel by POWGI. This new digital version of the classic word puzzle is available to download on the PlayStation Store today, and on the Nintendo eShop on Thursday.

On Switch and PS4, connect up to four controllers to solve the puzzles as a team, or see who can find the most words.

Word Sudoku – Switch Game Footage!

Word Sudoku Launching Nov 22nd on Nintendo Switch; Demo Now Available To Download!

Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games is delighted to announce that Word Sudoku by POWGI is coming to Nintendo Switch, with a free playable demo now available on the Nintendo eShop.

Word Sudoku by POWGI is a word-based twist on the classic logic puzzle game.

The core gameplay will be familiar to sudoku fans, but instead of using the digits 1 to 9, Word Sudoku is solved by placing nine different letters so that no row, column or grid section contains the same letter twice.

When completed, each puzzle will reveal a different nine-letter word, spelled across one row or column of the grid. This can act as an additional hint, if needed.

Players can also switch the puzzle into “number mode” if they prefer.

Touch screen controls are supported in Handheld Mode, but the game can also be played in Tabletop Mode or TV Mode using a controller.

The game contains 240 puzzles in various difficulties and is priced at $7.99 / GBP £6.99 / €7.99. Pre-orders are now open.
