-Young apprentice witch Magra falls asleep on the job watching a boiling potion pot while her master is away on an errand, and the potion overflows, transforming all the store's ingredients sentient! The roots, bones, fungi, and plants sprout legs or wings and scarper just as the apprentice wakes, and in a panic she sets out to collect them.  Using her wand and her wits, she must search the hut, the surrounding village, and forest levels before her master returns, and ensure not a single ingredient is left behind or eaten by scavenging critters.

-After the intro animation plays to introduce the story, you go through levels searching areas for missing potion ingredients. You can lift/disrupt various objects to see if anything is hiding behind them. Once discovered, the ingredients panic and try to run away; you must cast a freezing spell on them to return them to normal. Small critters like mice, cats, and forest boars try to eat the ingredients as they run, and you can use your freezing spell on them to stun them before they get to your ingredient. Each subsequent level requires you to be more skillful with your aim, and the harder the level the more spells it takes to retrieve your ingredient. You get more points the more ingredients you recapture before midnight and your master returns home.
