The puzzles are very interesting and I love the simple but beautiful aesthetics. Also it's really great that there's a detailed explanation of what's going on that you can see at any moment.
Congrats on the 20th rate :D

I always love 1 bit style games and this game is no exception! This is a very awesome take on the theme, I loved the idea of you undoing your spells after getting the cork. I like how the game punishes mistakes like missing a jump using that mechanic.

Really liked your art and game design! A nice touch to have the in game help screen. I needed that a few time.

Great job!

could you please play and rate my game as well?

Cool game concept. the graphics looks nice and the concept is fun. I think if you just told the player that you could use potions and gradually introduced new ones instead of telling them about all of them at the beginning it could be more fun. Good game!

Excellent! Good implementation of "Rewind". Good Luck!

This is a very impressive game! The core mechanic is extremely clever and is a great starting point for a ton of clever puzzles. The way the potions you use are displayed on a timeline makes it easy to visualize what you are doing. Especially for the early levels, the level design is effective at teaching the player the basic mechanics, and the help screen you can access at any point is super handy. The music and atmosphere definitely matches the tone of the game. The only problem I can see is that the physics are a bit slow and janky sometimes, though I really like the potion placing controls. One of my favorite games of the jam so far, and for sure the best puzzle game I've encountered. Great job, can't wait to see more levels and more potions!

Wow! I love this games 1 Bit graphics but this game shines with puzzle elements and game design! I really liked how the cork and bottles were used as well it made me think about my moves before I got the cork. Great job!

The concept is really interesting and the art / SFX / VFX were on point!

As others have said, having a more smooth jump and movement would make this even better.

Good job!

The puzzles were really nice, but the jumping felt kind of inconsistent regarding the jump height. But the pixelart you did made this worthwhile. Really neat game, with a unique interpretation of the mechanic :)

Good game, but the instructions were unclear, and the player character was very sluggish.

Cool concept! and the audio design is satisfying. It'll be even better if the UI are scaled to the proper position. : D
