App description: The official adaptation of Potion Explosion, the award-winning puzzle board game.
Play this game solo or against players from all over the world with Solo, Online and Local Pass & Play modes!

In Potion Explosion, you will explode ingredients, trigger chain reactions and gather it all in your caldron. You will then use your hard-earned unicorn tears, fairy dandruff and other magical ingredients to craft powerful mixtures with wacky effects! May the best wizard win!

HOW TO PLAY
At the beginning of the game, each player is given potions to complete with specific effects and ingredients. You will have to select ingredients in the dispenser; once your selected ingredient is removed, the ingredients above will slide down. If two ingredients of the same nature collide, they explode and you get them too! You can then use your ingredients to cook up your potions. You only have a limited tank space to store remaining ingredients from one turn to another, so choose carefully! Once a potion is completed, you score points, get to use its powerful effect and pick another potion to craft. The wizard with the most points wins!

PREPARE FOR THE POTIONS EXAM IN SOLO
Play against up to 3 adjustable AIs to sharpen your potion crafting skills!

OR PROVE YOUR MASTERY IN MULTIPLAYER MODE!
Play against wizards from all over the world online and get to the top of the worldwide leaderboard!

To sum up, the game features include:
The magical universe of the board game, fleshed out and digitally enhanced
A tactical gameplay, allowing for different playstyles and strategies
A Solo mode against up to 3 adjustable AIs
An online Multiplayer Mode with a worldwide leaderboard

There's some feedback on boardgamegeek and I found this vid.... it's the only extended gameplay I can see on YT. Looks well made, portrait only, YT claims pass and play but I'm not sure it does that (other recent Asmodee apps don't)

Portrait only? Crap.

Just bought this a few minutes ago and can confirm that up to four can play on the same device. I can also confirm this is portrait only but I don't mind because it is very playable on an iPhone SE... and I have old eyes. I've only taken a quick run through the tutorial but it looks like it will be a fun game. I have far too many iOS board and card games (is that possible?) but I think this will make a nice addition.

If I don't look for online MP, yeah, I may proceed buying this one, with caution.

Haven't tried online but just plagued this game for a few minutes and fifty impressions are that this is pretty fun so far
