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.
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.
Really fun! Would recommend
I haven't played the physical version of this game as the artwork never really caught my attention, but I bought this app when it was on sale, and I have loved the game play! Strategic gameplay made more challenging by adding additional players and on hard mode. Would like to see the expansion added for additional challenge or a new level of master AI opponents as I can see this becoming too easy over time.
- You have to wait in game for someone to join your online game because if you leave to a different screen, it removes your game from the list and takes you offline
- I cant figure out how to get several of the achievements and nowhere online seems to have answers
- Once you understand the strategy, becomes too easy without other challenging opponents
