Ratings and Reviews
New expansion is buggy
I enjoyed the original game but it became kind of same-y after a while. This expansion solves that problem, but introduced some bugs.
The expansion tutorial froze on me the first time I tried it so I had to force quit and start over. It worked fine the second time, but my first game was a disaster. Every once in a while when I used an ingredient from my pool, it didn’t disappear. I couldn’t use it again, but it blocked a slot. On my next turn, the problem fixed itself; at least until it happened again. Once it did it to two ingredients from the pool which totally stunk because now two slots were blocked. So whereas I could have filled the pool with colors I didn’t need and used a potion to make them wild, I couldn’t do that and lost the game.
Please do more extensive testing before releasing updates. iPad Pro 12.9 (first release) with latest released iOS.
Great translation of board game.
A fun game and if you are a fan of the original board game it is a must have.
My only issue with the game is when you are create an online game and you are waiting for a player to join your game becomes unplayable until someone else joins it. This is a huge issue as I have never seen more than two players online at a time. The ai is too easy so the developer really needs to fix this issue.
This would be 5 stars if the online issue was fixed.
Fun but sometimes unclear.
There were some moments when I thought the game was stuck. Either I couldn’t select a Potion or move on. Turned out when using the Potion of Prismatic Joy you need to hit the tag below the Potion, not the Potion itself. Also had moments where I thought I needed to select a new Potion but the game was waiting for me to make a move. If your new and not paying attention it can be frustrating. As you play more it won’t be an issue. I do wish they had a beginner option that gently reminded you, where you were in terms of your turn or where you need to hit or tap something.
