The first video game about Potions was released in 1980.

Brøderbund, Blizzard and U.S. Gold has published most of these games

Potions are a fantasy trope where they hold magical or alchemical substances that have miraculous effects such as instant healing, curing any ailment, giving resistance to elements, and even more spell-like effects such as creating a magical barrier around the one who gulped the potion.

Occasionally the potions may hold something more realistic, such as plain water, wine, or poison.

Potions are usually shaped like a pear (like laboratory flasks) with flat bottom that allows them to stay upright.
