This game contains WONDERFUL graphic designs, character development, and story paths! I absolutely adore the fact that it’s such an accurate representation of what life would be like at Hogwarts before Harry Potter. The game is filled to the brim with adventure and mystery to entertain you, and a customizable character that can cast every spell (if you learn the spells, that is). The game also includes a dueling feature and several different events! However, the energy takes up 4:00 minutes of time to generate ONE portion of the energy bar, which I find INSANE! You can also collect energy when you click on certain spots in the castle. Contrary to several reviews I have read, the energy bar limit increases within and at the end of each year. You start out with being able to earn only 25 energy, but at Year 3 you can earn up to 30 energy! And sometimes even though you have a full bar you can go even higher, although I do not think you are supposed to be able to go higher. Many people have written in reviews that the prices for clothing are obserd, and, for the most part, I agree. You earn 100 gems at the end of each year, though, so saving up would not be too difficult. Overall, the game brought me into a world that I wanted to interact with ever since I was 8 years old, and in one of the best possible ways! The developers deserve a standing ovation! 🥳
Okay I love this game. I really enjoy playing, discovering new places, and meeting the many different characters etc., but today this game is really challenging my patience. I am in year three and I have to finish the stinksap lesson in order to move on to the next chapter. I have played this lesson twice already today and I finished it both times, but after I collected the reward and left the classroom, it told me the lesson timed out and took away three house points both times..? Not to mention that it takes something close to fifty energy just to complete it once, which takes about an hour and a half to complete if I start out with a full energy bar of thirty. After I finished the lesson the first time, I was left with my energy bar completely drained and it took twenty minutes short of three hours to complete the second time. Now I have to start the lesson a third time with my energy drained AGAIN, and who knows if it will actually work this time. If it doesn’t work it will take three more house points away. I’m just imagining the different ways that I can smash my iPad because this is extremely frustrating..😖 Anyway, this is mostly a rant and I apologize for that. This really is a great game, and I love all little details and backstories that I’ve learnt throughout it. I recommend it 100%. ..Just know that it can be very frustrating at times.
This game deserves a five star rating just because the creators did such an amazing job at making Hogwarts, the entire app, look so amazing and on point with how the school actually looks. I was immediately addicted to this game as soon as I downloaded it months ago. I love that you can make your own custom witch/wizard. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, being able to choose your House is a big deal. The story starts and you’re hooked. I’ve read the negative reviews and most people just don’t want to pay for anything extra. That’s fine. This game does not require you to buy anything for you to be able to move forward. But if you love the game, want to buy some extra gems on a sale for some extra energy, then don’t feel guilty about spending $5-$20! It supports the game, helps bring updates faster, and helps the creators expand the game further. All for FREE! People need to stop complaining about getting an amazing game for free and that they don’t want to spend money or wait for the energy to refill. Just support the game! If you love it, support it! If it was a popular Xbox game, you would be spending $65, plus whatever the season pass was, PLUS a monthly fee to play online. I’d rather spend $20 on Harry Potter and hope they expand the game or make a second game. Our money really does help bring us amazing entertainment with this particular team. They’re awesome!
I love the Harry Potter game! Getting to experience the magical wizarding world is truly amazing! However the game does have a few problems... One would be that the energy only goes up to 25. I find myself in the middle of important lessons not being able to finish them because I am out of energy. The game should give us more energy or let us buy energy with our coins, not gems. Second would be that no matter what decision you make, the story ends up being the same. You can not take your own path. Third would have to be that the game restricts certain areas of Hogwarts until you can get into a different year in Hogwarts. Fourth is that after you have completed all 7 years, there is nothing more to play. The game ends just there. I would have liked it to continue with choosing a new career in the wizarding world. Finally, fifth would be you have to complete 10 long chapters in order to move on into the next year. It should be at least five chapters. I think this is one of the reasons why the game does not continue afterwards- because they ran out of space to add anything else. Overall though, I do like the game because it takes you on many different adventures around Hogwarts. I do recommend this game, but please be aware of the consequences! Also just a side note: I recently got glasses in the game- and I realized everything you do, Rowan does as well. Different outfits, accessories, and even pets.🙄
I really enjoy this game and have been playing it a ton since getting it. Having grown up reading the Harry Potter series I love being able to be apart of it in game form. Only things I wish is that the energy amount that you acquire was higher than it is. I find I go through it so quickly, right in the middle of lessons. I know it’s probably so that we either have to wait it out or buy more but still wanted to mention it. I also wish there was an option of buying gems or energy with the coins we earn in lessons. This game is very heavy in the micro transactions direction and thats it’s main drawback for me. Since it takes so long for your energy to replenish you’re put in a position to be more inclined to buy gems and use them for energy since storylines depend on finishing lessons so much. This adds up very quickly. I would think there could be a better middle ground for this. I also understand the developers have to make money but as a consumer I felt the need to bring it up. I rack up coins very quickly but would rather use them towards gems or energy rather than clothes. I also wish there were more options for creating your character. I hate to compare it to something else but for instance Bitmoji has added more hairstyles and colors since it first came out. Probably a bit harder for this since its animated but I wish there was a bit more variety. Otherwise love the game!
