I'm glad it prompted me to review this game. It's time for me to do some work.

This is a fun mechanic that gets old quick. This was an automatic buy for me because of Card Crawl and Card Thief. I was ultimately disappointed that this game is missing the driving replay value due to its complete lack of Card upgrades, levels, and other rewards. I feel like I'm repeatedly playing level 1 of a game that never progresses to level 2.
I'm pretty bad at it, so my strategy is a bit brute force. But that's on me. This game is pretty, has great music and sound and is a lot of fun.
Super fun and addictive. It would be super cool if there were "prizes" to get with the coins made in the game.
The game is fast and easy to pick up, making it great for coffee breaks or standing in line. The artwork is phenomenal - fun, stylish, and superbly executed. My only complaint is that the black card distribution changed in the latest version, rendering distillate potions all but impossible.
here are some thibgs u should add. 1. be able to put the cards back when place them 2. it would be fun if we were playing for something. like a prize or minigames or rewards. 2. you earn skips by doing something. and if u have none u eaither have to wait an earn them or buy them. say buy ten skips for 99¢ 3. maby get more cards? like purple idk. 4.
This game is a simple and elegant puzzler with a great deal of polish. The gameplay is easy to learn, fun, satisfying, and pleasantly different from other card-based solitaire games. It would be a fantastic game even if the art and music were not so delightful and well-crafted, but here too this game exceeds expectations. The art and animations are just the right mix of beautiful and quirky--a perfect fit for this wonderful game!
Well worth the two dollars. The art, music and gameplay are wonderful. I only wish there were some other challenges/progression and a harder difficulty. It would also be interesting to add more card colors and columns. Perhaps six instead of four? Lots of potential here.
What title says. Redundant and boring after a short amount of time. However it is nice that they don't try to sell you junk like power ups or whatever.
This game is fun, not too hard (although I still haven't found out how to make a distillate) and has clever artwork. The tute is worth doing, too. I watched it twice-stilling looking for distillate directions-and picked up some very helpful tips.
...in a good way!
I play this on my way into work, and it makes my commute glorious. I love the games by this team, and really appreciate the music and sound design. Things feel satisfying when I move in this game, and that makes it an incredible distraction. Awesome title.
Miracle Merchant is a fast paced solitaire where you serve customers who need one of 4 suits of ingredients. The potions you mix are colorful and surprising, the characters you meet are distinct, and everything flows nicely through the short games. The strategy of brewing new mixtures, satisfying all of your customers, and making the most out of each game is rewarding, and simple to ease yourself into. Daily tasks help you pace filling your potions list, and daily games offer a more competitive, though still accessible layer of play. I don't play a ton of games on my phone, but this is a neat little package I plan on exploring pretty thoroughly. Great for those who like puzzlers, achievement hunting games, or short bursts of activity.
You play short, 4-card combos until you mess up or the deck runs out. Each game takes only a minute or two. As much fun as it is when you know the basics, it's really frustrating trying to figure out what you're supposed to do to build those giant combos. It involves a combination of luck and skill, but I can't seem to get the hang of it well enough to know when luck is going my way and how to take advantage of it. Still, I don't regret any of the time I've spent on this game... so. Four stars?
The game is fun and well made but I feel like there isn't enough to the game. You could add a shop for cards and buy special card with the money you earn making potions for the customers.
The art style is charming and the game is simple. However, the entirety of the app is pretty shallow for $2. Different modes or levels with specific potion themes would be nice. Need more content but overall a fun and simple game.
My game is fully updated yet even after completing a task it doesn't say complete. Secondly there are no levels in the game. Seriously , what's the goal/point of the game.
Update. After completing the 3 tasks-there are no more tasks! Why have any tasks then. What a waste of a great idea and artwork. Bought today and deleting today.
I wish the drawings were a little bit sharper. They look pixelated, specially the icons that appear when the customers ask of the type of potion they need. I was going to ask for a refund but I have faith that this will get fixed soon. Other than this, I love it.
I'm usually not one for mobile games but I just couldn't resist the pleasant aesthetic that it commits to. From the character design to the background music, this game is so dedicated to its presentation that I can't help but get lost in the quaint monotony of it.
Not as interesting as the other card games by this brand. Maybe it's just much harder and I'm not getting the strategy, but the last 4 games I've played I get to the last round and don't have the cards to finish, so I lose. Can't boot people forever. Went through the tutorial again. Feels much more based on luck of the draw than Thief or Card Crawl. Update: won the last two games. Don't really know why other than that it happened to work out. Really feels unpolished compared to the other card games by this creator. Oh well.
hard!!!! but im having fun getting good at it
Great blend of strategy and luck. Talented game designer.
Very addicting gameplay and awesome art style makes this an instant buy.
This is my second purchase by this developer and I'm very pleased with it. It's a simple yet challenging card game. Once you get the hang of things you really start working towards the goals.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BORING GAME!!!
I first downloaded Miracle Merchant because I'm a fan of the artist who did the art for the game, but now I'm fond of it for the gameplay, too. It's an inventive, original card game that requires creativity and strategy, and makes for a lovely, immersive experience overall! More than worth the $$. Thank you for making this incredible game!
A great solitair-like game. Mechanics are simple but with significant depth. Very fun and satisfying. No in app purchases.
Its super refreshing and always different. A great pass time and just great to play whenever. Fantastic art style for the potions and characters.
The game rules are simple enough on their own but theres more complexity to the game & it's challenges the more you play; I find it a great way to relax my brain when I'm winding down before bed.
Love the style, and the gameplay is fresh and challenging. The only reason I give it four stars is because it's too hard!
I thought the game was great. Keep up the good work.
Just as great as card crawl & card thief. If you liked one of those you'd love this. And vise versa!
I love this game and how it keeps you on your toes and makes you think. I find myself playing this on a daily basis, trying to up my game or even when bored! I'd say this is better that your run of the mill solitaire game.
On first play, this seems a simple little card game, with lush art and an exquisite sound/music. But as you play round after round, learning and observing, a joyfully tricky and strategic game emerges leaving you "just one more round"-ing into the wee hours of the night. The daily challenge adds a competitive aspect and, for those apprentices that persist and practice, you _will_ leap into the rankings—all have an equal chance of winning each day, and it's all in how you play the deck. Easily my favorite game I've downloaded in some time, well done to the developers. 😁
Good for quick plays
Art style is immersive and the gameplay is interesting and fun.
It's made by Arnold Rauers, enough said.
Love some fantasy, love some good art. Maybe a little random, but eh.
Absolutely love this solitaire card game
This is a really fun game, but before this update it was extremely challenging, with black cards around every corner, it was practically impossible to win, with this new update though, it should be much easier!
I really love the concept of this game. I just wish there were some unlocks, or some progression of some sort.
It doesn't feel like it's done. Despite the beautiful art style the game mechanics is too simple and it's almost impossible to complete a game because you'll never know when the black cards pop up there for making the potion too weak. This game has so much potential so please update it!
The gameplay is fun, but there's no variety, nothing to spice it up. It could use some type of story mode. Or at least some type of competitive mode. Also, the tutorial is kind of lacking. Needs more to it. Of course, the whole game kind of needs more to it. There's nothing to strive for other than discovering all the potions and your daily missions. And even those get frustrating because none of what you do saves unless you finish the whole game. Made a new potion? Nope! You didn't, because you didn't have the yellow card you needed for the final customer! I understand this for the quests- but the potion collecting? Really? Come on. The art is the major plus. Good gameplay, but gets boring easily. I have been ragging on this a lot, but believe it or not, I do like this game. It's just hard to ignore the fact that it doesn't have much to it for a 2 USD app on the AppStore. To conclude, it's very lacking. Fun, but it should of been given some more time in development before being slapped into steam stores.
Pretty fun, but ultimately the game isn't that deep and $2 seems a bit steep. Anyway, there is a lot of potential so I hope future updates bring more to the game.
