Very nicely put together. I hope you come back and add some of those brewing mechanics you mentioned, there are lots of places you can take this. I like the tune very much.

My highscore is 7:48 and 1020 Points. Mid-way I was thinking it was too easy, but then it snuck up on me all of a sudden. I'd like some of that difficulty sooner, balancing wiping out blocks with making the match-fours.

Nice graphics, love the colours, Congs

Thx for the feedback guys and gals.
I had a lot of ideas for this little game but my time got cut short by my ill cat (sob story, I know..). I definitely plan to add some more of the brewing mechanics I had in mind, so follow the game for updates :)

I rarely play these kind of game. Not the biggest fun of them, but I liked this! Well done! Nice sprite work, feels polished. Some tweaks on gameplay and it'll be great!

There doesn't seem to be any penalty for making loads of moves. While the concept of matching 4 while avoiding matching 3 is good, there's a lot of tedious shifting involves, and there's also no benefit for matching 5 in seems? It does look really nice though, and the audio is pretty good.

Love the art!

Really interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

The extra challenge provided by trying to match 4 (to get a potion) while not matching 3 (so the things disappear) adds an interesting extra wrinkle to this. The scene -- a potion seller, wizards -- adds some meaning to the game mechanic, and the graphics are good. Dragging is a little awkward, and unlike most match-3 games you can drag to swap any two pieces, which I didn't at first realise.

Great sprites! Keyboard control would be good -- it was a little awkward to click and drag the potion parts (for me at least).

Graphics are fine and the idea of being a potion seller is nice. I wish it wasn't a match-3 game, could be some kind of crafting instead of that. But that's just my taste.

Great concept! :) And the art is pretty cute. I like your game!

Cool game, I liked the little tasks you had to complete to get extra points. Felt it lacked challenge, though. Good job! :)
