** The Fifth Ingredient expansion is now available! You'll meet the Professors, concoct unbelievable new Potions and unleash a new ingredient, the Ghost Ectoplasm, in this madcap expansion! The Fifth Ingredient also adds Reward and Scolding tokens. **
The official adaptation of Potion Explosion, the award-winning puzzle board game.
Play this game solo or against players from all over the world with Solo, Online and Local Pass & Play modes!
In Potion Explosion, you will explode ingredients, trigger chain reactions and gather it all in your caldron. You will then use your hard-earned unicorn tears, fairy dandruff and other magical ingredients to craft powerful mixtures with wacky effects! May the best wizard win!
HOW TO PLAY
At the beginning of the game, each player is given potions to complete with specific effects and ingredients. You will have to select ingredients in the dispenser; once your selected ingredient is removed, the ingredients above will slide down. If two ingredients of the same nature collide, they explode and you get them too! You can then use your ingredients to cook up your potions. You only have a limited tank space to store remaining ingredients from one turn to another, so choose carefully! Once a potion is completed, you score points, get to use its powerful effect and pick another potion to craft. The wizard with the most points wins!

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.
Interface needs work
While everything looks beautiful, it isn’t a good layout of the game. You can’t see what your opponent has unless you click on them. Too much of the screen is taken up making the players layout look good an not enough is devoted to showing the other players. Game needs to play in landscape mode really with the sides of the screen showing all 4 players and what they have (at all times) without requiring you to click on them. The dragging of marbles to your potions is buggy and refuses to work sometimes. This needs to be fixed also.
Near Perfect Fun! Just One Thing...
Extremely fun game. It made me run out the next day to buy the physical games. The one thing this game sorely needs is an Undo button. I would limit any Undo button to only going back one move maximum and only if someone hits the Undo button within a time limit of say 5 seconds or so. If they put that in, it would vastly improve the game with the easy to make missteps that are immediately apparent after tapping.
It would be like allowing someone about to drink a potion to “get it to their lips” but change their mind before drinking it when they immediately realize it won’t have the effect they thought it would. It would also allow someone to put a marble they accidentally pulled back in the rack (if done within the time limit).
