A FUN adventure game based on JK Rowling’s original stories, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery features beautiful and fluid graphics.
The game begins when you are chosen to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry years before Harry Potter received his own Hogwarts enrolment letter.
I tested it on an iPad Pro 10-inch and was delighted with the option to customise my own avatar by selecting to be a witch or wizard, then selecting hairstyle, face shape nose, shape and lip shape. You are also allowed to name your character.
Your character will then explore rooms of Hogwarts Castle and investigate ancient mysteries while experiencing life as a Hogwarts student.
During the adventures, you will learn powerful magic and knowledge from Professors Dumbledore, Snape, and more. You will get to duel against your rivals and forge alliances with new friends to help you on your adventures.
You will also be allowed to choose your house from Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff or Slytherin.
The story starts when you are in the Diagon Alley and meet a friend, who assists you to prepare for enrolment at Hogwarts.
You talk to the friend and other characters that have an exclamation mark over them and proceed with dialogue.
The story unfolds through the dialogues and at times, you will be given choices to answer during the conversations. The choices you make will affect the status of your role-playing character as well as the unfolding story.
During the game, you attend classes to learn and master magical skills like casting spells and brewing potions. For example, you learn how to brew potions under Professor Snape’s critical eye, master Transfiguration with Professor McGonagall, and learn Charms from the esteemed Professor Flitwick.
As you progress in the game, you unlock new characters, spells, potions and locations as you advance through the years of Hogwarts.
The game’s interface is intuitive. For example, it alerts you about what to do next by highlighting the character or items that you need to interact with. But you will need to do a lot of reading to find out how the mystery unfolds.
And as it does, you will discover the truth behind the Cursed Vaults and your brother’s disappearance in an all-new story.
The game is free to download and play though you can purchase some in-game items with real money. If you want to limit this feature, disable it in app purchases in your device’s settings.
