You get the choice of assignments from your mailbox every morning which can range from previously made potions, to new and difficult ones. The ingredients also cost you coin, which you can buy from your charming assistant. While it didn’t happen to me, I wonder what happens when you run out of coin and have no ingredients you can use to make a simpler potion that you could have your assistant sell. Though, the game makes that a difficult task to achieve, I’m sure interested in knowing if there is any assistance or issues that may come with a situation like that.
The good news is, if you are quick enough with making your three assignments, you can make an extra potion that is selling for a high price with your assistant, as mentioned previously. Once you get the hang of what ingredients certain potions need, that is a great way to make some extra coin to keep your shop afloat.
Overall, the game is relaxing and pretty, the concept of cutting out and changing elements of ingredients is unique and fun at times, it is almost washed out but the lack of communication on how to work your items into what you need until you have them memorized. I’d give this game a 65, just because of the time it takes to learn the mechanics on your own through trial and error.
