While it may be a rather blatant rip-off of Cooking Mama, the fantasy setting of this arcade game makes it feel somewhat fresh. In Potion Punch II, you and Lyra have finally opening the potion shop of your dreams. Now comes the hard part: doling out those potions, as well as meals of artisanal, pond-to-table, organic, dragon-cooked Daggerfish. Just do it quick, before your customers become impatient and go somewhere else. This not only means mixing potions and fast as you can, but also making sure the little dragon doesn't overcook the fish, as he tends to do. As you progress, you can use the profits to improve your shop, or to hire such helpful coworkers as Lizzie, a famous dragon whisperer who'll supervise your little lizard.

As fun as this may sound, though, it's still a fairly blatant rip-off of Cooking Mama. But the fantasy setting does make things different enough that this won't seem redundant. While your dragon only has one setting, and can thus overcook the Daggerfish like the grill can burn the burgers in Cooking Mama, some potions have to be mixed before they're bottled. Though it also helps that this fantasy realm is a cartoony one; more like that show Disenchantment than Game Of Thrones or Lord Of The Rings. That's why you don't have to worry about Orcs beheading your customers as much as you do said customers stiffing you on your tips. Altogether, it makes Potion Punch II a good test of your entrepreneurial acumen...and screen swiping skills.
