Asmodee Digital and Horrible Games have teamed up to bring a digital version of the popular tabletop game, called Potion Explosion, to Android devices in the near future. For those of you not familiar with this game, Potion Explosion is a pattern recognition puzzler style of game designed in which players reveal their inner wizard skills.
Update: January 30th, 2017 3:37pm PST: Fans of the actual tabletop game Potion Explosion can now pick up the mobile version of the game from Google Play. You’ll be able to pick up a copy of Potion Explosion off of Google Play for $4.99 for the full game.
Players will be attending the Horribilorum Sorcery Academy for Witty Witches and Wizards (yes, that is the school’s name) and attempt to become the head of the class by creating the best potions in the class. First you will need to gather all of the ingredients for each potion you want to create, and then you’ll actually need to produce it. Ingredients include such things as Unicorn tears, dragon smoke, ogre mucus and fairy dandruff.
“Gather your resources in the dispenser, and compete with ingenuity to collect ingredient marbles of the same color to trigger explosions! The more identical marbles collide, the more ingredients are collected through chain reactions to cook up your magic beverages. Combine the correct ingredients to create stunning potions such as the Elixir of Blind Love, the Potion of Prismatic Joy or the Sands of Time. You can also drink potions and benefit from their magical effects to collect more ingredients to be placed in the player’s dispenser or directly into a rival’s inventory.” – Potion Explosion
You’ll need to create as many potions as you can, all of which actually need to work. In order to win skill tokens, you will need to master a particular potion several times, or by proving your skills at preparing a variety of potions. Gain the most skill tokens and you will win the game. You can play against AI opponents, or go up against other players.
Potion Explosion is slated for release onto Android (and iOS) in early December, although no specific release date has been announced just yet. When it does arrive, it will cost a flat $6.99.
