  • Game freezes Jan 8, 2020

    By Tuli95
    Lately this game freezes and locks my iPhone Xr. It happens when the videos play. There are a few games that are advertised that will freeze the program. The website allows a person to email a programmer for this game but the person must have previously submitted an email in order to receive a password.

  • I ❤️ My Bonza But... May 2, 2018

    By Wingwalkergirl
    Customer service is nonexistent and abysmal. I have messaged I’m app AT LEAST 4 times with no response. I gave up a month ago. Why was I messaging? Because I love game so much I wanted to play more. There is a themed travel pack I am trying to purchase but every time I try it just buffers and buffers until I have to force quit the app. There is simply no excuse for not hearing back. I am at home on WiFi when attempting to purchase so it isn’t an internet speed issue. I even did a speed test. I download showcase packs every week with no problems. When you message through app it takes you to Safari where you are emailing so they could email a response or respond in app. I have also messaged through the regular Bonza app offering feedback on technical issues and ever heard back. This has not always been the case, however. When app was first introduced I messaged with no issues...just praise and gratitude and they contacted me then. I am extremely disappointed. This is my favorite word game but if you ha e a great game and poor customer service, you will never be more than average.

    The greatness of the normal app is all here along with a few of the bonza jigsaws sprinkled in for variety. I am still so impressed about how clever this new style of word puzzles is. I will be playing this for a very long time.

  • Great Game! Jan 22, 2019

    By MakeGrandmaHappy
    I love these puzzles and the unexpected workout they offer the brain. I don’t understand why they created a second game that is virtually the same game as the original Bonza. Bonza Planet is barely different. It just throws in a few picture puzzles here and there – a photo instead of a crossword puzzle has been cut into pieces and needs reassembling – or gives a crossword clue in the form of a photo. It’s the same game. I think the Bonzo word puzzles are the best. Once assembled, you think they really shouldn’t have been difficult (none of the words used are difficult) but somehow they turn out to be a real challenge for the brain. And they are a lot of fun!

  • PUZZLE Jul 19, 2018

    By sis5555
    The puzzles are ok, annoying that you cant turn off the sound or music - keeps turning itself back on.... so you can’t have anything playing in the background.. and they are always trying to get you to buy puzzle packs. I anyone ever really that bored? The little tidbits of trivia are a win though. I think for Adults- 2 to 3 stars but for younger ones - middle to high school - acceptable free time reward Spoke about rewarding those that make puzzles- they said no- want money Have found too many with errors. JFK with moon landing. JFK died in 1963. Moon landing was in 1969 - hardly

  • Bonus Coins not credited after watching ads Dec 17, 2017

    By BorisNet
    Periodically a player is asked whether they’d like to watch an ad for bonus coins. However, in current version, after the ad is played (and sufferingly patiently watched) the screen will ‘freeze’ on a blank white screen and the bonus credits do NOT therefore get credited to your account. Sad that the developer probably gets credit on their own for each ad ‘sold’/watched but they do not fulfill their promise to the player. Scam. I turned this feature off in my settings.

  • Noisy ads Jul 19, 2019

    By kodiakak
    I’ve said this before but it needs to be said again. I haven’t deleted the app (yet), but I don’t play as regularly as I used to because of this issue. I love this game, but the ads need to respect the phone’s silent setting. I can’t play this game if the ads are going to make noise when I’m expecting my phone to be silent. Please let your advertisers know that I won’t be seeing their ads at all if I delete the app. Please keep the ads silent when the sound on our phones is off. Thanks. I would happily give you 5 stars if this issue was fixed.

  • I like it but... Oct 1, 2018

    By Effingpam
    The points don’t get added after each game and sometimes you get a prompt to watch a video for points but the video plays and no points or the video just disappears and again no points-not even for finishing the puzzle. Frustrating. It’s especially annoying because the original Bonza game works great. Too bad nobody could be bothered to get this one to work as well. I like playing this one more because I really like the mix of word and jigsaw puzzles.

    When this was National Geographic, I had given it 5 stars, but didn’t complete the review. Now, I don’t enjoy it any more. One reason is that I was extremely disappointed there was no puzzle for America’s Independence Day. Today there was one for Mexico’s and not long ago I remember one for some celebration in Vietnam, as well as other countries. You may well have lost a devoted fan for this as well as the fact that so many of the puzzles now require a great deal of scientific knowledge. Science never interested me and I am getting tired of these puzzles.

  1. It's like a crossword puzzle on steroids! A combination word search, jigsaw and trivia game designed to tax your brain to the max
  2. Solve a new mind-bending puzzle every day with themes like Animals, Travel, Planet Earth, Humanities and Science
  3. 'Bonza puzzles are instantly addictive!' - Will Shortz, Crossword Editor for The New York Times

    Enjoyable game and you can also do picture block puzzles within the game - good concept and well put together. No time constraints either. Recommended.

  • Daily Shuffles too similar Sep 30, 2018

    By Navitach
    I do have one issue with Bonza Planet (and Bonza): the lack of variation in the Daily Shuffle. I play it every day, and I always choose the option to watch an ad to play another Daily Shuffle. But I have seen very similar puzzles more than once, such as Dog Breeds (or something like it), Flowers (again, similar ones), European Capitals, and so on. I have, once or twice, played the exact same Daily Shuffle puzzle on separate occasions. I myself have created 2 puzzles, and my son created one, and I have never seen any of them. My suggestion is to make the Daily Shuffles more varied.

  • Truly disappointed Dec 22, 2018

    By moonliter
    I play this nearly everyday. Came across the Dogs puzzle. Can’t get it to accept Chihuahua. I finally gave up and wasted 35 Points to see how it fits. It gave the clue but will not really offer the correct answer. It has that dull sound that it makes when it tells you right letters but not right one. Can you please fix this so I can move on? Thanks.

  • Relaxing Feb 27, 2018

    By jujubeebop
    If you like both crossword and jigsaw puzzles, you'll love Bonza. Puzzle difficulties range from easy to difficult depending on the offering of the day and the puzzle pack you are doing. The jigsaw puzzles are my favorites, and my only complaint is that puzzle packs don't contain more. But the reward for completing daily puzzles is the ability to accrue and use credits to purchase jigsaw packs... the best!

  • Decent time killer Oct 25, 2018

    By Immortal2153
    Been playing for several months, daily puzzles are good, if you get stuck there is a video ad that will give you a clue for free. Only problem is that this past update made it hard for me to close the app or switch apps by swiping (using the iPhone X). They made it very hard to swipe, which I dislike. Not sure why they made it so hard but it is annoying if you like to swipe left or right to quickly switch apps. But the gameplay is decent.

    Like the game in general. I wish there was an easier to way to get hints. Watching the commercials all the time is a little bit of pain in the butt. Maybe addcouns and give is 5 coins per finished game and then use them to buy to next group of puzzles.

  • Fun Jul 4, 2018

    By Lil g 81
    I used to love this game but now I am so frustrated by ads that will not close no matter how carefully you touch the close button. I also find more and more puzzle packs have very technical words that are not general knowledge, i.e. Greek foods that most non-Greeks have never heard of. When you attempt to use the hint button you cannot close the ad.

  • Pay twice, enjoy once Apr 5, 2018

    By sfwendie
    Buy a hint: about US$0.04. You MUST spend at least US$1.99 to get them. In addition, you MUST buy the puzzles at about US$1.00 each. They're interesting, but it's a problem deciding if extra puzzles are worth it. My budget for this game is US$5/mo, or US$60/year. At this level the NatGeo version is amusing and is worth *** three stars.

  • Bonza Dec 27, 2017

    By Oldfatgolfer
    Love the majority of these games. Some are too easy, some are so topic specific they are nearly impossible without hints. The only bad thing that is very , very, VERY irritating is all the commercial ads. You have to learn to endure and ignore them to get back to playing Bonza

  • Like my review for Bonza, why the incredible battery drain Oct 12, 2020

    By Indybart
    Let me start by saying this is one of my favorite iOS games of all time. BUT I have had to delete it. While playing my phone gets very hot and the battery drains like a sieve. Not sure what is going on in the background because the game on the screen shouldn't be using that many cycles. Too bad, because like I said, great game.

    There’s an option to get a free hint after watching an ad, but recently, after watching the ad, the game will freeze. If you restart the game, you’ll either continue from a previous state or be given a new puzzle.

    I love these puzzles, they are my new favorite. But you can’t turn the sound off. Every time I turn it off, the next time I open it, sound and music is back on. It takes over whatever you are listening to, music, podcast... Might have to delete.
