'I saw complaints about bugs from 2 years ago so I guess they’re not going to fix the freezing problem. That’s too bad because
this is a great implementation of a board game to an app.'

'Perfect casual game for tabletop gamers'

'I got sick of all the IAP casual games with their time delays, ads, and booster backs. You have to pay for this game and the
expansion, but after that it just works. There are some more rules upfront than your average game, but that means there is also
deeper strategy. Took me a day to be able to b

'Great Match Game With Extra Strategy'

'This is a nice twist on the match game genre. Very clever and fun. Lots of depth but still accessible for casual gamers. Great
job!\n\nSolo play on my XS Max with iOS 13 works great, no issues. I can’t speak to multiplayer since I don’t do that, but the
base game via solo play is great.'

'Love the game hate the bugs'

'This game so awesome and entertaining. Love playing it with my kids! We wish it had an UNDO button because it’s so easy to
touch an unintended ingredient by mistake. Also, the APP hangs sometimes at the end of the game'

'Somebody get the pesticide, for here be bugs!!'

'It would be terrific if the bugs could get cleaned up. I\'ve installed the game numerous times to try to get the bugs resolved,
and each time its reinstalled there\'s a different kind of bug causing problems. Otherwise, I\'m really enjoying this game and the

'Greatest digital game I have ever played'

'The game cartoons I thought were very good.The potions, the effects, the orbs, and the way you play I thought was very creative.I
could not think of anything more entertaining.'

'Love it'

'Not understanding the low reviews. The game looks and sounds awesome for the theme! The 5th element expansion adds a wonderful
new depth to the game. Just wish there was more online players. Great game!'

'Fabulous game, slight bug.'

'My family and I love this game, both the physical and app versions. My only issue is that with the newest update I can not
complete the Graduatus Classis Cautionis achievement. I’ve won multiple games against the bots at various difficulties and not
triggered the Professor often enough to precl

'One of the best board games ever'

'I don’t quite get it: why is there an average of 3.4 for this lovely game? It’s a really aesthetic and artistic game; the
animations, the music, hell even the queer names are so great! It doesn’t have any bugs (at least in the offline mode),
doesn’t consume too much battery (even has an opt

'UPDATE: Have not had a syncing issue since last update. \n3 -> 4 stars\n\n(-) Async games can get out of sync.\n(-) Crashes.\n(-)
Loading screens are cute, but take awhile to load.\n(+) Nice UI\n(+) Multi-player sorta works, unlike other Asmodee Digital
products.\n(+) Game logic is smooth.\n(-) Can

'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

'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 add

'Great game, a bit buggy'

'This is a really well made game. I like the concept of the game and I think the developers did a really good job turning it into
an app. One little problem I do have though is that occasionally the game gets stuck and offers no option to proceed. It’s easy
to quit the game though and start a new

'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 m

'It won’t let me win'

'I really like this game, but it has some bugs that need to be fixed. When I create an offline game with a bot, if the bots wins,
everything works fine. But when I win, the screen is stuck loading forever so I don’t get the official win! It’s honestly
really disappointing. What’s the point in

'Awesome game with some glaring oversights'

'I’ll up my review to 5 stars when the developer adds two simple things: the ability to turn on notifications when it’s your
turn to take your move, and game history/stats. These are so basic that I can’t understand how they were left out. Otherwise
everything is great - hopefully we get anoth

'A favorite. Newest release is very buggy'

'I love this game. Was excited to try The Fifth Expansion, but it is buggy. Freezes up part way through turns. Won’t allow any
normally allowed actions (sometimes triggered by using little help action). The Prof. Prissyman achievement doesn’t work. No
instructions on activating Prof. Humblescore

wife. I’m looking forward to getting those squashed so that we can enjoy this SUPERB implementation of a thoroughly enjoyable

'Fun game, but too many glitches'

'This game is super fun and addicting, but the app could use some work. First off, I can’t add a buddy even though I’m
playing them online currently. When I type their username, it says their username is not found. Second, this game does not alert
you when it’s your turn. So you will have

'Problems w expansion'

'Written early July 2018\nI just recently bought the expansion for potion explosion and am excited to be familiar w the new
professors and spells. \nTwo out of the four games I’ve played have been stuck where I had to quit. \nOne wouldn’t let me fill

'I was close to finishing the last achievement...'

'I own only the base game, and I don\'t play online. I wanted to finish one last achievement before upgrading: Trigger 10,000
explosions. I was 70% complete. The new update removed that achievement. Looks like I\'ll never get to finish that achievement, so
I guess I won\'t be buying the expansion.\n

'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.\n\nThe 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 disas

'Glitchy on iPhone 8+'

'Works great on my iPad and my iPhone 5s, but today I got a new iPhone 8+ and it runs very poorly on that. Slow, with pauses and
animation stutters. It’s a shame, because it’s a great game.'
