Wordsweeper by POWGI coming to 
Nintendo Switch!

Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games is thrilled to announce the release of their latest word game, Wordsweeper by POWGI.

A free demo for Nintendo Switch is available on the Nintendo eShop from today, ahead of the full release on August 8th. The game will also be released on the PlayStation Store for PS4 and PS Vita on Tuesday, August 6th.

Wordsweeper is a crossword puzzle solved using logic and deduction. As the name suggests, it is inspired by the classic puzzle “minesweeper” but this new word puzzle is unique to POWGI.

Instead of defining words, the clues indicate a set of letters that must be placed in adjacent squares and the player must work out which letter goes where. Logic and reasoning combined with a knowledge of English vocabulary will allow them to deduce the solution.

Designed as a casual puzzler, intended to get your brain ticking in moments between more intense gaming sessions, Wordsweeper by POWGI follows Lightwood’s usual no-fluff approach to puzzle games. It’s optimised to launch quickly to get you straight to the content and will give you pointers if you get stuck.

Cross-buy is included for PlayStation, so players can download the game on PS4 and Vita with one purchase. Players who complete the game will be rewarded with a platinum trophy.
