Several months ago, we told you that Minimega’s Apple-feted iOS game, Bonza Word Puzzle, would soon be getting a sequel bearing the world-renowned brand of National Geographic. Now, you can spread the word: Bonza National Geographic is O-U-T.
Of course, Bonza National Geographic features the brain-teasing core word search/jigsaw/trivia gameplay of the original Bonza game. That is, it also, for the most part, has you dragging and connecting fragments of crossed words to complete crossword puzzles built around certain clues.
But in line with its association with National Geographic, the new edition of Bonza includes jigsaw puzzles and picture clues featuring photography from the esteemed scientific and educational institution. In particular, Bonza National Geographic challenges players with puzzles based on National Geographic themes such as Animals, Humanity, Planet Earth, Science, and Travel.
As with its predecessor, Bonza National Geographic also lets you play free daily puzzles and even submit your own puzzles.
Take a look at the trailer for Bonza National Geographic:

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Bonza National Geographic is available now on the App Store as a free-to-play game, with in-app purchases offered for unlocking additional puzzle bundles and getting additional coins for buying hints and puzzle packs.
It’s worth noting that National Geographic’s net proceeds from the sales of Bonza National Geographic will go toward the funding of important exploration, conservation, research and education programs.
