Over recent months the Lightwood Games team have filled the console scene with some rather enjoyable little word games, all in the form of … by POWGI. Now though that same team are back with another addition to the list – Gaps by POWGI. If you enjoyed what came before it, we’re pretty sure you’re going to be at home here.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch (at least from the 22nd July for the latter) is Gaps by POWGI. This follows on nicely from *deep breath* Word Sudoku by POWGI, Roundout by POWGI, One Word by POWGI, Crypto by POWGI, Mixups by POWGI and Ladders by POWGI. Yep, that’s a lot of POWGI.
Anyone familiar will know what they are getting here, but in case you’re coming in late with a handful of vowels and consonants that you don’t know what to do with, let us fill you in. Gaps by POWGI is the latest word puzzler from Lightwood Games and in it you are presented with a series of standalone puzzles.
Each of these are made up of a number of five-letter words, each of which have one letter missing. It’s up to you to find out what those letters are so that when they are added in, in sequence, they spell an additional word.
Gaps by POWGI comes with a ton of puzzles – 150 in all – and there are thousands of permutations available for each. The thing is, there is only one solution. Can you find it? If you do, in standard Lightwood Games/… by POWGI form, you’ll be treated to some of the best ‘dad jokes’ known to humankind. Or bad one. Lightwood don’t care – they just want to throw the puns out there.
With cross-generation upgrades in place, Series X|S optimisation in tow, Gaps by POWGI comes to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch with much enthusiasm. We’ll be sure to let you know in our full review whether that rubs off on us or not – or whether those bad jokes just ruffle us up the wrong way.
If you can’t hold for our thoughts and need to get in on the word-pun/puzzle action, head to the digital store of your choosing. Our favourite is the Xbox Store where it’ll set you back £6.69. What’s yours?
These words have one letter missing. Deduce the correct letters to fill the gaps and spell a new word, but watch out for red herrings! There are 150 puzzles to solve – and 150 terrible jokes.
