Bonza Word Puzzle

Bonza Word Puzzle takes crosswords and creates a puzzle game based on it. Unlike Scrabble, where you can create a word on a gift, there are a bunch of different grid pieces, which have letters connected either vertically or horizontally, which you then need to connect together to form actual words. You essentially created the crossword puzzle out of pieces, instead of using the individual letters to create a crossword puzzle. It’s challenging and an interesting look at crossword puzzles! 

Bonza Word Puzzle can be found on iOS and Android.

Hexicon: Strategy Word Game

Hexicon is a word-based puzzle game that has a strategy element to it, in the form of area control. You are able to play solar or against a friend, and select words by linking tiles that are near each other together. If this does make a word, you then get that area highlighted in your color. You can gain some of your opponent’s color by creating words using letters they have previously claimed – and you can make your color darker by claiming your own letters a few times, to solidify your territory. It’s a really competitive word puzzler.

Hexicon can be found on Android and iOS.


Anagrams is a word based puzzle game where you are looking to find anagrams, however, the font used in the game makes some letters symmetrical, vertically, which means that you can rotate each letter to create various new letters, changing the anagram that may be hidden before you. Anagrams will change how you think about the word, as there are different perspectives as you rotate the font and find hidden letters, making this game challenging and unique.

Anagrams can be found on Android and iOS.
