  • While word games of this sort are probably better suited to play on a mobile device, when the challenge is there and the price is at least reasonable it’s hard to begrudge a title like Way Forward. Be warned, even among the tougher word puzzlers I’ve played on Switch, this may be the toughest with its pretty strict ruleset and pre-made boards awash with vowels that you’ll likely curse. With the objective of clearing all letters in each screen, and making judicious use of the few power-ups you have, you won’t want to be impulsive. Even if you see a great longer word you can pull off, which will give you a useful bonus letter swap ability, if it’ll put you in a corner trying to clear the board you won’t be able to use it. If you’d appreciate a thoughtful challenge that taxes your vocabulary as well as your strategic ability this could be a winner.
