What's New in Version 2.1.11

Hi Bonza Solvers,

We plan to collect the best puzzles from the community and showcase them. We’ve implemented a rating system that should help find the cream of the crop.

You can now create MYSTERY CLUES using the puzzle creator. Use a combination of upper and lower case letters. E.g. “Dog Breeds” becomes “D-- B-----”.

Some players have asked for the ability to examine the details of a puzzle after it's complete. You can now do this by tapping BACK from the puzzle complete screen. We hope you enjoy this new feature.

In this version we’ve addressed some performance issues and made general optimisations. If you’ve had errors in the past, hopefully this fixes them.

The Bonza Team

Daily puzzles from June and July 2016 are now available

Customer Reviews

Great game - but Expensive!

I love this game. It's simple but also challenging enough. The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I refuse to pay for extras in apps - and that's all this app will allow. In order to get more than the regular 3 puzzle packs they start you with, you have to pay about .99 per pack (that's usually 30 puzzles). The only other way to get packs is by using bonus "stars" they give you when you complete a pack - and there's not nearly enough of those, so I've ended up waiting about a week each time I complete a pack in order to be able to unlock more.
I wish this app would offer a paid version where we pay one time in order to get access to all their puzzles.

Great word game, new favorite

I love word games & this is my new favorite. Some puzzles are challenging & some are easy, a good mix. I don't think I would like it as much of every puzzle was a struggle. And certainly wouldn't like it if it was too easy. None so far as super hard, so perfect game for when you have a few minutes to kill and want a bit of entertainment while still using your brain (unlike a lot of games that often depend on luck to get past a particular level). Very well designed. And I love that you can make your own puzzles, fun! I have no problem paying for access to additional puzzles when I get so much enjoyment from a game :)

My favorite word game by a mile!!

I can't stop playing Bonza, what a great word game, it combines crosswords, trivia and visual puzzles. Some puzzles seem impossible but can be solved with patience and time. You can play for almost free by building up coins doing the daily puzzles and not paying for shortcuts or skips. Try this game if you like words, you'll end up loving it as much as I do!! Another note: Been playing for a long while when suddenly all my "coins" disappeared, the support team had me up and running again in a couple days, can't believe how nice they were! Thank you Bonza...
