"Bonza puzzles are instantly addictive!"
- Will Shortz Crossword Editor, The New York Times
Bonza is a new type of crossword that has become an instant classic. It mixes word search, jigsaw and trivia knowledge to create something completely fresh. If you like a word challenge and you enjoy pushing boxes around with your fingers, then you'll love Bonza Word Puzzle.
In early 2013, Minimega set out to reimagine the traditional crossword and design an experience for touch screen devices. Bonza Word Puzzle was then released in March 2014. It’s a game that requires players to arrange word fragments to solve puzzles. An Alpha version of the game caught the attention of Screen Australia, who then helped fund the production of the game and support its development. Bonza became an instant classic and earned a spot in the Apple App Store Best of 2014 list.
