  • 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.

    It's fun and different from the other one. But the puzzles are short and done quickly. I hope they have more free ones than the other version. I finished it I a few days and deleted it when all that was left were puzzles I had to pay for.

  • 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.

    I love this game because it's easy yet challenging, because you can play offline and online, because it's fast if you want a quick game to fill in a few minutes or a very addicting game to take your time and spend hours playing.

  • 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!

    It was a lot of fun at first... until you get the same puzzles over and over and over again. Nothing new. And then there are the obnoxious ads. They're exceptionally long, and many have no option to mute the sound. Time to delete this app.

  • 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.

    Nice & addictive gameplay. Very good for killing time. Not boring. Like other games, ads were there but it was not annoying at all, instead it was worthy because it give hints and coins. Please add a lot more showcase packs, i've completed it all.

  • Fun brain game for short gaps of time Oct 21, 2018

    By Amber_sct
    I like that this game because it makes you think but not too hard and is a game I can play when I only have a few minutes to kill or can spend longer if I want.

  • 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.

    Too early to give more than 4 stars and please as with your other puzzles a screen lock button is definitely required the screen moves and changes size far too easily

  • 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.

  • 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.

    This game is very addicting/challenging but it seems that the developer has abandoned it to work on their new one that its beta but comes with a monthly subscription ($3.99/month!!). I have completed many of the packs and will probably uninstall once I finish the rest. They do let you play un-tested puzzle if you run out, but they are usually pretty bad. Now after watching an ad it now takes you to the play store without even touching the screen, I didnt think that they were allowed to do that.

    the game is ok, if you don't mind excessive and neverending video ads with no way to remove them. if there was a way to remove ads, I would play it more and even suggest it. as it is, I wouldn't suggest it. I like the game and I can barely stomach the full 30 second ads for terrible games that I have no interest in at all, even to complete the daily puzzles. the ads ruin it.
