Description

Bonza Phrases is a casual word puzzle game for mobile. Players will appreciate the clear and simple approach, suitable for the whole family. This game celebrates proverbs, idioms and figures of speech that are part of everyday language. Arrange the word fragments to complete the phrase, it's a piece of cake!

Bonza Phrases is designed to be a rewarding learning experience. Much like other games in the Bonza series, players will find insight and inspiration from the puzzle content.

The game follows a classic linear level progression, with new chapters unlocked over time. The daily puzzle features topical content throughout the year. Players are also encouraged to submit their own puzzle ideas that could feature as an upcoming daily puzzle.

Weekly events are updated every Saturday with themes like “90's movies” and “Shakespearean quotes”. The combination of fresh daily and weekly content gives players a chance to develop an ongoing relationship with the game.

Bonza Phrases is free to play with In app purchase. The game is monetised with ads but they can be removed for a small fee. Players can also purchase “ad-free time” with in game currency. This variety of options gives players a choice depending on their budget.

This game will be periodically updated with fresh content and new features.

History

In late 2021, Minimega set out to develop a new word game for the Bonza series. The concept for Bonza Phrases was conceived and the early prototype showed promise.

In mid 2022, Bonza Phrases was awarded a grant from Screen Australia as part of the Games: Expansion Pack. Development began and the game started taking shape.

Bonza Phrases is scheduled for release in September 2023.
