Love this game but dissatisfaction concerning energy levels
By Quest For Knoledge 1986
I enjoy playing this game but I am disappointed as to how quickly I run out of energy. Perhaps it could fill up faster instead of one every four minutes? I don't know if you are planning this is the future, but, I would love it if there were quiddich matches in the future and if there could be tryouts and that one could actually be on the quiddich team if they would so wish to. And have the options to be seeker, beater, keeper, or chaser. I also don't know if you plan to have the character to go back to Diagon Alley, but it would be great if that was possible and if there were other options to go to and not just Olivanders Wand Shop and Flourish & Blotts. As a huge fan of Harry Potter, to be able to see the other stores like Eeylops Owl Emporium, Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour, Gringotts, the Leaky Cauldron...the list goes on. As a Harry Potter fan I give this game five stars even though I am not happy with the energy depleting. I look forward to being able to see more of the places and explore which the books described and that also came alive in the movies. And I know not everything was covered in the movies, some things were left out but it would be great to see the things that were in the movie and left out in the books. Another thought would be what if one could also come across the room of requirement every so often? Best of luck, and again, I look forward to seeing how the story and game plays out
This is probably one of my most favorite game and time passer I’ve ever had! The quality is amazing, and the storyline and plot is great too! I love how you get to go to each professors class and learn about all the spells and potions, etc. I also like how they added some rivalry into the game (you’ll figure out once you play), it makes it more interesting. One thing that I don’t like though is that the energy runs out VERY fast. As you level up the energy limit gets a little higher but still it runs out within minuets once you start a lesson or activity. And it takes about a little over an hour to refill, and by the time it refills, your activity is over and you have to do it again because you couldn’t complete it. One thing I recommend though if you’re going to play this game, make sure you’ve read the books because whenever you’re in class, the professors will ask you questions regarding that class and the answers to those questions will be found in the books, for example: (In Madam Hooch’s Class: What do you say to summon your broom without grabbing it? The answer is “up”) but if you haven’t read the book you wouldn’t know that because in the first book it says that in there. Other than that, this is great game. I recommend this game to all of the Harry Potter lovers out there! (But be aware that when you play, you won’t go to Hogwarts with Harry and everyone else, the storyline takes place before Harry Potter arrives at Hogwarts).
Good but room for improvement
I enjoy this game despite the energy system. It’s a stretch to call it an RPG as the roles and choices are limited and restrictive. But it is enjoyable. I have two suggestions for changes. The most annoying thing about the game is the inconsistent system during lessons and earning stars to complete the lesson and move forward in the story. Sometimes energy is used to its max, in that if you use five energy points and only needed one to get the next stars, the star meter will give you all five energy points, progressing past the star. This is the least common scenario. What usually happens is that in the same scenario, using five energy points when only one is needed, you’ll lose the other four, and there’s a hard stop at the star. I hope this makes sense. Yes, sometimes it’s possible to get the exact number you need to get the star, but more often than not, it is not possible. I would like to think that this isn’t the developers’ strategy to make more money by forcing people to buy gems. Maybe it works for some people. Imo, this is bad design. If you’re going to have an energy system, make it consistent and fair.
Number two. The extra mini games that give users more empathy points are annoying. The five seconds or more spent on the characters smirking at each other if you succeed, or frowning if you fail, is time better spent by watching paint dry. Do away with these minigames please, or change them so they’re not so repetitive and irksome.
Energy. . .seriously?!? UPDATE
By Dudemar time
The updates are helping. Energy thing is a drag, but I’m being patient. I used all of my useless gems on energy before the update, now I need to work up to being able to buy a pet to make me extra energy. The meal/game/butter beer is a great way to earn some extras. I am also earning the clothing and other extras on the weekends. Hopefully the dueling club will be fair and not cost more than the prize you get if you win.
It would be cool to work in some type of puzzle solving thing to earn extras. I also ads watching has been added, but not yet on my game. I would do it if that meant earning gems or energy.
Keep up the great work in the updates. Do your best to stay true to HP for the die hard fans.
This game looks amazing and I’m sure the story will be great. Like too many other free apps, they are capitalizing on us being impulsive. I just refuse to buy consumables like gems or energy. I can wait, however, I wish I could upgrade my energy counters more quickly. I’ve only gained 2 so far in my game play. It would be nice to get to a place at some point when there would be an energy infinity weekend or finding Peeves or the house elf would fill up my energy completely, rather than just by one. Maybe in an update. 😀. I’m really enjoying myself and looking forward to seeing the locations that are currently locked up to this first year witch.
so much fun, but has it’s drawbacks
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!
No way to go but up.
This game honestly has a strong base to build on, it has interesting side quests right along with the main quest. I like the inter house friendships. It’s pretty clear choice does matter in the game if only a little. It would be nice to see a bit of variation in every players story. It doesn’t make sense that Snape would hate on a slytherin or McGonagall would favor one for extra lessons. Both were pretty known for their own house favoritism, but I digress. The game itself is fun for the short while we get to play it at a time. I think before a new game decides to start panhandling so aggressively for money it should build its player loyalty first. First it would be cool to maybe do some extra activity to earn back some energy, the hidden energy tokens only go so far, maybe scrub some cauldrons for Snape to earn back 5 energy. Polish broomsticks for madam hooch, obviously you can’t do these tasks all day every day to earn free energy we all would have graduated long before now, maybe pay 200 gold for each task you can do something for each teacher related to their area of study. It would keep wait times down and players happy, and once the players run out of gold and energy then advertise a gem pack to them for a slightly decreased price. I’ve got several other ideas that would benefit both player and Jam City, but there isn’t enough space here for all that.
PLEASE READ: Love this game but needs to change....
Okay so right now I’m a first year and everything is so amazing!!! I love everything about this game! The graphics are awesome! But.... this game needs some changes....
First the energy NEEDS to CHANGE ASAP! It’s horrible.... ONE ENERGY takes FOUR minutes REPLENISH?!?? Are you serious??? The full meter is 25 and in order to wait for 25 of the energies to replenish and that would be about 100 minutes of waiting which is hmm... about OVER an hour???!? That’s RIDICULOUS! Please get rid of the whole energy thing or at least reduce the time to wait for them to replenish! Besides the lessons or things to do uses energy only talking to people on there doesn’t. You should have something fun on the app to pass time or something that’ll give you energy. And if you have to “unlock” it in further years or chapters then that’s incredibly stupid. I think first years when you immediately first start out should be able to do quick mini games or activities or something to get energy. I understand that the pets can give you energy and I’m trying to save up but this is still ridiculous.
Also I don’t know a lot about this app but if there’s only a few lessons and stuff for charms and potions then that’s very sad unless there’s more in year 2, year 3, etc. but if not plz add some more.... otherwise it doesn’t feel much like Hogwarts to me.
By Problemed Person.
This game is good. But it is a cashgrab and a tap and wait for hours on end. Yeah the personalities of the teachers are accurate, and the graphics are great. But this game needs to chill on the money and the 200 gems FOR A HOUSE COLORED SCARF is INSANE. And 6000 coins for weirdo glasses, normal glasses 200 GEMS TOO. Some of us want our character to be like us! Like the customizable American girl doll thing. I myself want my character to be with glasses and not have to wait until I’m like on the sixth year. The game is great and all but behind the mystical greatness, the prices on things are too much to handle! Please put the prices on stuff down! I am begging you! The energy is crazy too, four minutes for a single energy. I am pretty sure that 25 is the whole bar, the amount of time to fill up the whole thing is 100 minutes. That’s just for the first year that I have not passed yet. But 100 minutes is, you guessed it, more than an hour! So while you’re waiting for the bar to fill, you have time to get distracted and forget about it. Your two hours of waiting on a lesson is over and you have to do it once all over again. I’ve had this happen three or four times with the Winguardium Leviosa lesson with Flitwick. It frustrates me every time. So I have to do it again and when I get to about the third or fourth star, it’s all gone. THEN THE WAITING GAME STARTS AGAIN. The energy and the pricing ranges are my problems. The rest of the game is fine with me.
So fun! But... UPDATE
I love Harry Potter and was excited to play Hogwarts Mystery. It’s a fun game, but the excessive amount of micro transactions make it annoying. I don’t that menial tasks have 3h limits to complete. I prefer 1h, as I can complete a star or two and then wait out the time. I like that we now get to do other things like play gobstones but they take several hours to reload. I dislike that one task takes up an insane amount of energy. If I sit down during my busy day to play, I don’t want to constantly wait for my energy to reload in order to get one task or class done. That being said, if developers lessened the amount of energy that goes into one task and decreased the time limit for side quests to one hour again, it would be more enjoyable to play.
Okay developers I see these updates, I see y’all doing your thing and I appreciate it. You can now watch ad videos for 3 energy points and for gems, classes and tasks are a bit easier to get through, the dormitory, the attribute points with purchases and pets!! I like that you can interact with friends to earn gems and energy points. I don’t LOVE that they’re capped at level 10 and after awhile all you earn is a clothing item so I hope to see more friend options! Even some older book characters come up? I’m sure the game will get better with time and I’m looking forward to all the great updates!
Most of you’ll have seen the problem with the very limited energy system so I’ll just state some improvements that can be made that won’t throw away the concept of making money from these interactions. First off, you could add more quests early on that give the plus 1 energy capacity which I thought would be more frequent after the first given one :( . Or, you could speed up the energy reload timer just a bit. At the moment I believe it’s 3 minutes? I’m not entirely sure but it’s around there and that’s just for 1 energy. I can’t even finish 2 star missions with 28 energy and the timer for each mission is a bummer cause sometimes I just can’t get back on time with enough energy to finish and it resets leading to the grinding resetting. Story is intriguing. Gameplay is eh. The focus and spell casting is alright. The dueling sometimes feels weird[4 straight offensive for example(I kept choosing sneaky hoping for something else)]. I was kinda let down by not quiz to see where you fit in but I guess the internet has a bunch if I really wanted one. The competition for points was a bit disappointing for me because I’m at this moment have scored the most points for my team(ravenclaw) 2nd place atm and my team is still last ;(. Could you add something like top 10 contributors overall get something cause right now it feels like even if I continually get the most points my team will never make it due to less people.
Great game! 💯 would recommend.
This game is super fun, the graphics are great, and the story is engaging. I love the characters and all the little details. If you are a Harry Potter fan, you will love this!! It’s perfect and is a truly magical game.
(The rest of this review is a few suggestions for the creators of the game and contains a spoiler for year two of the game.)
A few thing that you (as in the creators of the game) may want to consider is making people’s whereabouts match with the storyline. For example, when Ben is missing for a awhile he still appeared in the common room before I found him. Also, when Rowan got injured and was in the hospital wing she still appeared in potions class with me. Also, having more to interact with would be super fun! Like how certain objects can give you extra energy when you tap on them. I’m not asking for more object to give energy, but making all the paintings move or do something when you touch them and having the people around have short lines that they say when you touch them would add even more magic to the game. These aren’t problems, but adding those little things will really increase the experience. Also, I think you should think of more stories we can play though so that we can play this game again and again with different stories. Just a suggestion! Overall, well done! I love this game!! You guys did a great job!!
Great and Does Not Have To Cost Anything
First let me say this is a fun adventure game and I love it. But I get tired of hearing people say this is a pricey game. You only have to spend money if you want to. Many games require purchases to advance in the game. That is NOT the case with this game.
About cost, as you progress in the game you actually receive gems and coins. I am a gamer and I know that is rare. You do not have to purchase energy. In a three or eight hour quest -- you get to choose the length -- I have always finished well in advance of the time. Yes, when you run out of energy you do have to wait four minutes per energy point. This is normal in all the games I play. I just set the time and still always finish well in advance of the finish time. An eight hour quest takes me five hours. Only the impatient ones purchase energy.
The other cost mentioned is clothing which you do not need to purchase. I did make one purchase for an outfit I really wanted to have. Everyone else in the story is usually in their Hogwarts robe or a nondescript shirt and pants. You doing need clothes.
So, the game is great fun and spending money is optional. I'm at a high level and my attribute scores are extremely high all without spending a cent. I have earned enough gems and coins to purchase anything I wanted except one outfit which I chose to buy. Just play and enjoy this wonderful game.
Cool initially but needs more ways to interact
By Alexander Ttt
I have a pretty good attention span but even I started loosing steam about halfway into the second year. I made it to the beginning of year three and I don’t know how much further I can go. The app has an interesting storyline and the settings are really detailed and absolutely beautiful, but pretty quickly into the game challenges start taking too much energy and you can’t complete anything in a reasonable amount of time. Since chapters now take me days to complete, the game desperately needs something like mini games you can play on the side - essentially something more interesting than just tapping the screen and the occasional swiping of a finger. Either that or more ways to increase your energy capacity so you can get more done in one sitting. Along those lines, another thing I wish you could do is quit a challenge. It’s a pain when you only need one star to pass but you still have to either complete all five stars or wait three hours before you can go do another task. Basically, your available energy limit, plus the hidden energies you can collect, only allow for about two minutes of game play. And last, I wish you could skip over your character’s reactions. They probably only take 5 seconds or so, but since they happen so often and you can’t skip past them, they begin to feel like an eternity. The amount of my life I’ve wasted staring at my character’s overly-proud-of-herself face is preposterous.
Review Must Read
First off great game, great quality of work. Details are amazing and gameplay is great.
Every feature in the game stands out well and goes a long way. It is unique to have the questing for stars to receive clothing items as they disappear after a few days which make them unique and rare to in-game items. The creators should add more items instead of just the typical clothing items. Maybe add new hairstyles or scarfs and hats, things like that. The energy consistency works fine because I play this game consistency. There are some good updates I like such as the new pet update. This would be useful in the game. The dorm looks very plain, graphics look good but there should be an option to customize your dorm and the character looks sad, so it would be good to change their expressions. An idea would be to expand the friendships past level 10 so people can experience new things. I appreciate the story plots as they get interesting every time you progress to the next cursed vaults. One thing to mention, the gem items don’t give much bonus points after buying your clothes and gold gives a lot more, considering gems are harder to receive (once every year). Keep with the updates, and I am looking forward to continuing my progress with the game. I recommend the game very much, and spread the word to people.
Edit: The 8 hour quests are a bit too long in my opinion, I would say 5 hours is plenty.
My Thoughts on the game
Once I heard that this game came out I was eager to play this game and so far I like it, it wasn’t what I expected it to be, I thought it would play like the Harry Potter games on the console, but no it’s more of a tap and see what happens. I was shocked to see it be free. I thought a game like this would cost at least $5 but instead there’s micro transactions which I’m not really happy about but I understand why it’s there. I have been seeing complaints (which is one reason for the 4 star)on the energy limit to move on and the wait times, so maybe to fix it either add more to the energy limit and/or decrease how much energy is needed to pass a certain event? and maybe fix the time stuff takes to do? Just a thought. I am however intrigued by the story it has definitely hooked me into wanting more (and those 100 gems that you gave us was especially nice of you). I am looking forward into how the story develops in the other years of the game, I am also looking forward to the dating aspect of the game later on, I do hope Merula Snyde not only is an option as a friend but also becomes an option for dating as well (I sadly haven’t made it too far into the game, it’s times for classes are pretty time consuming) I would like to thank the developers for reading my review and hope for a developer response to what I had to say and I look forward to changing my 4 star to a 5 star later on, Thank you.
A fan that just wants to help
I really love this game and I play it everyday, however, many people I talk to that already play the game are getting bored with it after the first week of playing. Were I not the dedicated HP fan that I am, I might have gone with them. You’re story is great and as someone that always wanted to have a mystery to solve at hogwarts, this game is sort of my dream come true but the energy wait kills it. I understand this game needs to make money, but don’t underestimate the Harry Potter fan, we will spend where we love. As it stands right now, it doesn’t seem worth it to spend money if it’s only going to earn us 5 more seconds of play. It breaks my heart that this game that I love is broken up into seconds at a time. It is frustrating and takes a lot of patience to work through one task, an amount of patience I don’t want to have use when playing a game that is supposed to be bringing me joy. Now, if the plot based adventures required energy but the side quests, bonus classes and relationship activities didn’t cost energy and were always available to play while I was waiting for energy, that would be great! I would be in the world of the game for longer than a couple seconds and would be more likely to invest in the plot aspect of the game. Great work but if you are looking for a way to make it a game that will last and that will make money, I suggest reworking the amount of playtime.
I LOVE THIS GAME! It’s so much fun! I really like how we get to go to classes and everything, and I love how we get to have an enemy, because it’s not that fun without one. I love how we sometimes get to choose what our response is to some people! And the classrooms look so accurate! Also, I love the thing where you can press random things to get one extra energy; I often do that during classes. I also really like how you get to meet different people, and you actually get to meet Tonks, Bill Weasley, and Charlie Weasley! I have so many things that I like about the game, it’s so good! The only thing that I want to change is the energy system and the prices of things. I mean, 4 minutes for one energy bit?! And, some things that you accomplish raise the energy limit, so I’m at 29 right now, and the wait time for the whole thing to fill up is just way too much, so I try not to wait for it to fill completely during classes. But still, I would love to get energy faster. Also, the payment. Some things are just too expensive. For example, I really wanted this sweater, but I couldn’t get it because it was, what, 10,000 coins? And some other stuff cost more than 100 rubies! I really would like to get a pet faster! Anyway, the prices are really high, and I would like them to come down a bit. But other than that, this game is the best game I’ve ever played! 👍😂
ALMOST Lived Up to the HYPE
I long awaited this release, as did many others. The graphics are good. And the game plays smooth on my device. It brings back all the HP nostalgia that I hoped for. BUT...
One of the best things about HP is being able to get lost in the story and lose all track of time and place. If you expect that from this game, you will be disappointed. The biggest downfall in playing is that if you are a player who doesn’t buy in-game items, you will blow through your energy in five minutes and be left waiting for your energy meter to refill. Some might be okay with this. For me, it makes it difficult to get wrapped up in the story and I’m already starting to lose interest. I’m literally logging in, playing for five minutes, run out of energy, log out and find something else to play. I’ve barely begun to play and it is already feeling more like a chore to open the game and play than an excitement.
With that said, if the energy were not an issue, I would probably be playing all day. As I said before, the graphics are good. Also, the tasks are good and somewhat interesting. The ability to customize your character is enjoyable, despite having to pay to change certain physical features or clothes. I just wish I could actually play long enough to feel some sort of attachment to the game other than the pre-existing HP characters that have been included in the app.
Fun to experience but painful to play
As a major fan of both the books and movies of Harry Potter, I was very happy to find this game and experience Hogwarts for myself. What I found though shortly after the first few scenes was the game is predecided. I mean that as the game takes you where they’ve decided you’re going to go. You have some freedom to wander but the activities take you here and there and it’s not much fun.
The major problem I have with the game is that while doing these predecided tasks, you have to perform actions that require “energy”. Energy recharges 1 per 4 minutes and you start with 25 energy. The problem is, ONE activity like this uses anywhere from 20-40 energy to complete. Meaning you can only do one activity at a time without having to exit the game and let your energy recharge. This completely ruins the experience and stops me from enjoying the game as I can’t do more than one thing without being prompted to buy “gems”. Now I know every game has some micro transaction system but this is ridiculous. You’re ruining the game singlehandedly by making it take a month to do 1 year of the game.
My consumer opinion is that you either increase the amount of energy you get from the start or reduce the amount of time it takes to recharge/complete tasks. I know you may be trying to extend the lifetime of the game seeing as there is only 3 years but you’re killing the fun of it. I love Harry Potter and this game is cool but it needs work.
Dueling Club EDITED
Overall this game is amazing. I think that the loading time for energy is fair and with new ways to acquire energy it became a lot better. Very recently is the dueling club feature which I absolutely love. After 3 loses you have to wait 24 hours before being able to duel again which is fair. The only problem? It’s 24 hours of playing time. The app has to be open and running for the timer to run down and receive your tickets to duel. I’m on this app tops of 2 hours a day and with events like the ones that are running now there is absolutely no way for me to completely them. I don’t know if it’s a glitch or intentional but this is something that needs to be fixed.
EDIT: The issue has been somewhat addressed. Now it’s only 15 minutes of playing time to get new tickets which is completely fair. However now when you duel, stamina levels are not the same with your opponent. Your player level is 40 while your opponent’s is doubled at 80! It makes being able to win a duel much harder and a lot more frustrating. If you make as little as 2 wrong moves the match is over.
EDIT 2: You know how last time we just had to wait a certain amount of time to get dueling tickets? Not anymore! Because now you have to pay 120 diamonds just the get 3 more tickets! That’s utterly ridiculous! Can there please be some consistency??? I can’t complete the challenges for dueling club because I refuse to pay so much for for 3 tickets that can be used up in 2 minutes
Bad Energy Usage Setup, amazing otherwise
For a free mobile game this is stunningly beautiful and involved so I’m grateful for that. Also getting to explore Hogwarts as “my own” experience. However like many of the reviews mention the energy system is a cash grab and honestly takes almost all of the fun out of the game. I’ll be finishing out of principal and my obsession with HP, but that’s the only reason why. I’m only on year two and it takes all of my energy to do half a lesson, then you wait almost two hours for it to refill. I wouldn’t mind waiting a day if I could actually play for an hour or so straight. Also the game could’ve had more creativity with the story line and maybe extracurricular activities. Instead you just click to accomplish things, do classroom time not learning to unlock lessons, and basically do whatever the game wants you to do. Most of the choices given to you only affect what rewards you get but not the storyline or what you do, and now in Year 2 I cant even pick most of the choices because my levels aren’t adequate. That is pretty irritating since the game is so structured. The only real change you can make is in your friend choice and the game gives you 3 and lets you focus more on certain ones so it doesn’t matter much. Most of the creativity and choosing is early on then it levels out and you just click and wait and click and wait. I hope a better, updated game from the HP universe comes out soon. This was a disappointment
It’s the beginning of something magical
I’ve been a big Harry Potter nerd ever since I picked up the books back in middle school. So I would say that I have a decent amount of knowledge about the wizarding world and Iam glad that this game adapts things from the books and movies into it. Like certain spells or characters that you’ll most definitely recognize as you progress through you’re own years at Hogwarts. So far I think up to Year 3 has been set up since the game is relatively new, but I hope they take their time and continue keeping it original and packed with things to do like they have so far. My only gripe about this game would be the energy system and having to wait for certain parts of the story to open up. Which makes sense since time passes in real life and you can’t instantly do everything all in a row like that so it can be seen as realistic. But the energy limit kinda gets in the way sometimes and I wish that it would increase by 1 every time you level up or something additional to doing Broom training lessons. Because Iam currently on Year 2 and only have +3 more energy than I did when I started and it seems like lessons are going to require more stars from this point onwards. It’s not a major pain but it would make the game easier. Iam glad this exists though!
YES YES YES!!!!!!!
I love this game! I think I'm addicted to it but I don't care because I'm in HOGWARTS!!!! I'm just wondering about two things though. One, can you play Quidditch? I would love to do that and I don't think I'm the only one. And the second thing, which I just don't get, is the leaderboard. Why don't you just add everyone's points up for their whole time at Hogwarts instead of resetting the points every year? I'm not saying not to reset them each year, that would give players unreasonable and unfair advantages over one another. I'm saying that if you're going to have a leaderboard, why not just add every point each player has earned each chapter and then have a fair leaderboard. I hope this makes sense because I love this app and the fact I get to be friends with two Weasleys and Tonks! But please put Quidditch in this game! Also, it would be nice to have a pet. I know I want an owl but my cousin wants a cat, and my sister never got back to me. #Wizardfamily
You got to admit different pets are a good idea.
Yay! You put pets in the game! And we get our own dorm rooms! And I love the dueling club. Can that be a permanent feature? I used up all my tickets and I don't have the gems to replace them, which I'm going to guess is a problem for a lot of people, but it's fun to duel against other players, even if you lose.
Happy Ravenclaw 😍 but not completely satisfied
I love HP so much and nearly fell to tears when I found out this came was out. The graphics and plot are really good and got me nearly hooked. Other reviews talked negatively about it just being a point and click game and that didn’t bother me much, I still get to see the beautiful parts of Hogwarts even if it it’s seconds between missions.
The biggest reason I'm rating this 3 stars is first the customization of your character. I don’t mind paying for clothes other than my ropes but hairstyles? I’ve never seen a game charge for hairstyles. I’m a poc and I have dreads and that hair style is free but my sister has an afro and she’s pretty upset she has to wait till she hits level 15 to really look like herself in this game.
The other issue is the whole energy situation. You only have 24 energy and once you use any of them, it takes 4 min to reload one (time in the game goes quiet slowly imo). The first few missions you can get through in one sitting but after that you run out of energy fast and for me I don’t have money to buy more so I usually just wait and play another game but the missions have a set time you’re supposed to complete them and I usually forget to check up on my energy before I’ve run out of time and have to start the mission all over again. This is very frustrating and I’m not sure how much longer I can play till I end up deleting this game. Please fix
