What's New

Version 2.8.8

Hi Bonza Buddies,
This update is optimised for iPhoneX and also includes a bunch of refactoring. The recent overhaul should stabilise the app and address some of the issues you may have encountered. There aren’t any new puzzle packs but we’re committed to maintaining the bonus puzzle every weekend.

Sorry it’s been a little while since the last update. We’ve been focussed on developing the new game and we’ve also welcomed a new baby into the family! 2018 will be super exciting with the upcoming launch of Bonza Jigsaw, we can’t wait to share it with you.

If you would like an exclusive preview of Bonza Jigsaw, please email us at or get in touch via Facebook or Twitter. We’re looking for Beta testers who can help identify and troubleshoot issues that might arise. If you have an eye for detail and a love for jigsaws, WE WANT YOU!

Thanks for your patience and support,
The Bonza Team

Nice on many levels, just one annoying flaw


I like this game. It's well designed, has no annoying pop ups or ads that intrude on your play. I even like the music, which is more than I can say about any other game I've ever played. The game itself is basic but can be challenging as well.

It had only one flaw, but it's a big one. I've played this game for many hours, but I'm about ready to throw my phone across the room because the background moves the same way the pieces move. What I mean is that you use one finger to move the (teeny tiny, on a phone screen) word fragments around, but the whole screen also moves with only one finger. So when you mean to reach for a word, you often end up moving the whole board. It's maddening and entirely unnecessary. Simply make the background adjustable with two fingers rather than one. I mean, who thought this was a good design?

Please fix this intensely irritating flaw.

Essential Word game for puzzlers!


Pretty nice game so far...subtle, non-distracting sound track that i really love...played in bed without disturbing the night. Puzzles steadily increase in difficulty, without starting off so simple as to be instantly boring!! Bonanza will also suggest/allow Unlock of new puzzle pack during play with consistent solving. These developers have also shown great RESPECT for players in their thoughtful AD use and placement, earning my absolute loyalty!! Addictive & challenging, this is a high quality word game. Discerning Developers who actually seem to consider the player experience, instead of AD revenue. These guys have earned my loyalty! Can’t wait for New Game!!

Still playing


I've been playing this game daily for years. It was better when the developers picked the puzzles because they were relevant to the time of year, but I completely understand why they couldn't keep that up. The daily random puzzle is a great second option as it keeps the games fresh. I still find puzzles I can't compete without hints and / or Google. The additional packs - especially the jumbo pack - are convenient when you just can't put it down.
