In celebration of PAX Australia this weekend, the Melbourne-based indie studio MiniMega has slashed the pricetag on their crossword puzzler, Bonza.

For a week, you'll be able to download Bonza for free on your iOS or Android device. It is usually 69p / 99c.

Bonza is an interesting take on the word puzzle genre, incorporating "mechanics" from crosswords to create something part puzzle and part trivia.

At the beginning of each level, a clue is displayed at the top, which can include a single word hint or a prompt to fill in the blank.

Based on this clue, you have to rearrange pieces of a shattered crossword puzzle to create a grid of words that match up with the theme.

It might sound easy, and it is at first, but with all the new puzzle packs and daily challenges, there's plenty to puzzle over for fans of word games and crosswords alike.

In any case, it's free for a week, so grab Bonza Word Puzzle while you can on the App Store or Google Play.
