Gaps by POWGI (Switch) review
"You can find the game on PlayStation consoles right now, and it will soon reach others."
Lightwood Games announced today the availability of Gaps by POWGI on PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5, with crossbuy, and revealed the game is due to arrive on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S tomorrow. A Nintendo Switch version is due to hit the eShop the day after that, on July 22.
If you're not already familiar with the publisher, the main thing to know is that it produces a regular stream of light puzzle games, usually based on popular word games and often appearing in its "POWGI" line. They tend to reach most current platforms and provide a solid value for their asking price.
Gaps by POWGI continues the tradition. Your goal, according to the developer, is to "fill in each of the blanks in the five-letter words, using letters that themselves spell another word." It sounds kind of like a crossword puzzle but also kind of not.
"There can be thousands of permutations," noted today's quick press announcement, "but there's only one solution."
On PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Gaps by POWGI fetches $7.99 USD, and it seems safe to assume it will go for the same on the Microsoft Store and on the eShop, once it becomes available. Word!
