If I gave you only eight letters and a full crossword puzzle to solve without any clues, you would surely tell me it was impossible. If I told you that by completing it you would earn lots of Gamerscore, I think a fair few of you would jump at the opportunity. Roundout by POWGI is out now on Xbox and PlayStation – with a Nintendo Switch release coming soon – and offers you that same incentive. But trust me, it is easier than it sounds.
Continuing their trend of offering puzzle games that are a little bit different like One Word by POWGI, Lightwood Games have today released Roundout. Players are given a crossword puzzle to solve, but all the solutions can be found in a Word Wheel beneath it. There are no traditional crossword clues to help you, only that every word can be made from a selection of eight letters. There are plenty of overlapping words however, that should make things a little bit easier as you progress
But if you manage to find a word from the eight letters that isn’t in the grid don’t panic, as it counts as a Bonus Word. So, all those rude words your warped mind can find are still rewarded, just in their own unique way.
And if you are that way inclined, Roundout by POWGI offers plenty of easy Gamerscore. Best of all though, it is a pun-tastic game full of hundreds of puns to keep you sniggering under your breath. Or tut whilst rolling your eyes, if you are that way inclined.
