What's New in Version 2.0.6

Hi Bonza Solvers,

This version introduces the BONZA PUZZLE CREATOR. It’s a momentous occasion as Bonza evolves, allowing you to create your own puzzles and challenge friends. We’re truly excited to share this update with you.

You could send a romantic love-puzzle to your partner, or an Italian puzzle to your Nonna. You could make a super simple something for the kids, or challenge your comrades to a confusing conundrum. Get creative!

As you create puzzles, we ask that you consider the consequences of your words. Remember love is wise and hatred is foolish; please act with tolerance, kindness and sincerity. As you’re solving puzzles created by others, please try to be open-minded. If you see words that you don’t like, you can report the puzzle as inappropriate.

On the fence? Just try it already! 😀

Like the title states, the high entertainment value of Bonanza has inspired me to suggest it to the masses. It really is that fun.
I've been a puzzle game enthusiast for decades now; so naturally a lot of games are amusing, but not many have that special type of feeling only an interesting, challenging puzzle can give.
It's simple to learn and has MANY options for further puzzle packs once you complete the standard set. The price of these aforementioned packs range from "coins" (earned by completing other puzzles) to "pay-to-play" (there are a huge number of $0.99 individual packs and also deals on buying some as a group).
Just try the game, I have a feeling you'll love it; and if you don't? You can always uninstall. So go forth and puzzle!

Strangely addictive.

A new take on the old crossword puzzle idea. It's surprisingly fun and hard to put down. The coin system in game is fair and they offer free hints if you get stuck (just have to watch an ad). I've played other puzzle games in the past that either don't have a hint option or it costs a significant amount of money- those typically lose my interest when I get stuck but this one does a good job of keeping you engaged.

Great twist on a classic game!

I'm a crossword puzzle lover so I was excited to give this game a try. I was a little unsure at first if I would like it but I was quickly sucked into this game and have not been able to stop. It is not overly complex but it does still stretch your mind and cause you to have to really think about your plays.

This is a great game for those who love problem-solving and critical thinking!
