Game Where You Fill Up Jars

a work in progress. If you know any games where you fill up jars let me know.

In case you're an idiot a jar is a thing you fill up with stuff and its usually made of glass and has a lid. It can come in multiple shapes and sizes, the most iconic of which is called the wide-mouth jar. For the sake of this list we're including any coverable glass container that can be filled with something in order to progress through the story or can be used as part of a mechanic. In numerous games you see things like flasks and tanks but I'd say they're fair game to include in this list since in most games they're basically the same thing mechanically. Buckets and drinking glasses and stuff like that I'd say no, they don't count.

List items

  • This is just one of many zelda games to include a jar, you fill it up with water. You can fill it with health potion stuff and a bunch of fairies. I think you bring the fairies somewhere. Its been a while.

  • In this game you can pick up flasks and fill them up with oil or water to produce aught of use. Carrying around oil is useful to fill up your lantern and make oil arrows and bombs and other stuff. Spring water can give you health, and 'tis used for crafting.
