This game is so good
by Hendrikam on 2020/11/25 16:07
I love this game it’s just like Harry Potter but you can’t really move your avatar but it’s a great game 🙂🙂🙂🙂
Fun game although...
by GamerKnight107635 on 2020/11/25 15:19
I really like this game, it has potential. I mostly downloaded it because I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I was excited to see what it had to offer. But it took forever to load the game and I would always get kicked out of the game for no reason. I don’t know if it is my WiFi or what, but I hate it! I never even got past the house choosing! Anyway other than that it is a great game.
Combat
by Fuzzy217 on 2020/11/25 15:09
The combat is so incredibly stupid. It is extremely repetitive and bland. It should be more of an attack and response instead of the randomness that it feels like it is.
Decent game but very frustrated
by MMB4917 on 2020/11/25 13:44
I have been playing this game for a while and generally enjoy it. I have been getting exceedingly frustrated as of late. I feel like the past few times I have paid for bundles and what not I have been double charged, but not for the same bundle and different prices. I generally don’t go above a set amount when buying bundles because I really don’t need to be spending money on a phone game. However, I have been able to challenge and get refunds on the bundles that I was charged for but never requested. This last time though I did not. I know for a fact which price I “approved” and was charged that and an additional $15 (which is above my limit) for another bundle I did not benefit from. When I requested a refund for that it was refused, and when I challenged and explain the situation again it was refused. I have no problem paying what I agreed to pay what I have a problem with is being charged more than double and then no one acknowledging this and refusing my refund request. I will jot be buying anything else from this game and quite frankly will probably stop playing because of my frustration. Not sure if anyone had experienced this but I have had it.
Awesome
by 1234$joce on 2020/11/25 13:27
Now, Where to begin! This game lets you have adventures, Learn spells, and so much more. If you are a Harry Potter fan, then get this game fast!
It’s so great, but not so
by Elsi Hughs on 2020/11/25 12:48
I love this game, but it crashes all the time on the second year feast and I wouldn’t get attached to it. I always was able to play this game fine, but then the second year welcoming feast arrived and the game crashed. Get this game, but don’t get attached to it is all I’m saying.
Great game but a little crashy
by nachomagda12 on 2020/11/25 11:25
This is a very very fun game but when i was in the first year feast it just crashed i tried again but it crashed in the same spot and i tried again but it just happened again. Before the gane just crashed at random. I hope you can fix this because this is such a cool game and i wish i could pass to year 2. Ps. if you’re thinking about getting the game, you should.
Pretty good but..
by edennh on 2020/11/25 08:12
I think this game is so much fun but it’s really annoying that u have to wait for energy! It makes me and my friends not want to play anymore! I think it’s a little unfair that learning spells,talking and different tasks TAKE SO MUCH ENERGY! :)
Add Russian language
by Nikita Prusakov on 2020/11/25 04:57
Add Russian language
There can be improvement*
by AzraelL. on 2020/11/25 03:20
In a week in a half I am a year 2. I love the graphics, the professors, the hairstyles are better (please add more!), I love getting to be able to choose your own house and the opportunity to change your name whenever you want. I like the magical creatures, but getting books is very hard. I don’t like to make app purchases, but I am seeing that getting magical books is freaking impossible without having to buy in shop. I just will be extremely patient :), I have gotten really far without buying anything. If you are impatient with waiting for energy in the game some advice: I switch between two games so that I’m always playing something when I’m in a gaming mood. It really helps with waiting out to fill your energy. I really like the adventure part of it and watching my character go through the storyline. It’s a good game, not only for the exact look alike of Hogwarts, but for that fact that you can get diamonds and coins without purchasing and that is AMAZING in a game so I count my blessings with this one. You can actually play and enjoy the game. There is always room for improvements! :)
I love the game
by Dre🌺 on 2020/11/25 01:27
But I wish that we had the choice to change the body type because the characters look kinda weird in the outfits because of their shape. Also if the creators of the game make a restart button that would be great because I be wanting to restart the game from the beginning but it doesn’t work for me or other people as well.
Great game. 1 major problem
by Reapertalon1 on 2020/11/25 01:07
This is a pretty good game if your willing to dedicate some time to it. I literally just downloaded it this morning and I had a ton of fun. Had. Not am having. Had. I made the one mistake of buying a couple gold purchasable cosmetics at a point where I can’t get any gold until I complete a part of the story that requires gold. The only way I know of that I can currently get gold, is by paying an admittedly small amount of money. But this is the kicker. You know how almost EVERY OTHER GAME allows you to pay for a primary currency, with the RARER CURRENCY instead of real cash. Not here
Stole my money
by Rowehl on 2020/11/25 01:03
It was supposed to be a $7.99 purchase and they charged me $17.99!! I want my money back and this fixed or your company will be looking a big lawsuit straight in the face.
Perfect, but a couple ideas
by 😍😍❤️❤️love on 2020/11/25 00:41
Okay, this game is great! This is a safe, fun game everyone can play. You can earn gems, you can earn free energy, and the graphics are great. Another great thing is that there are hardly any videos. A couple of ideas One thing is that it takes 4 minutes just to load one energy. Another weird thing is that if you do not finish the activity in the limit of the time it gives you, you lose points for you team (you loose about 2 points and the teams are ravenclaw, hufflepuff, slytherin, and gryffindor) 😥. Sometimes after those videos you watch for rewards, it keeps loading, and I find that quite annoying. Professor Snape also makes you lose a lot of points. One time I lost 40 points! I know that’s how the story goes, but come on!!! Otherwise, I find this game fun and I recommend getting it! This sounds like a lot of problems that need fixing, but trust me, it is a great game. Have a great day and have fun playing this game!
This game had a lot of potential
by HaxorPlayzYT on 2020/11/25 00:38
This game would have had a lot of potential, if not for a big problem. I was participating in a limited event, and when, the event was over, I was still doing a task. Now, when I try to do anything else, the game won’t let me until I finish my current task, which I can’t access. Please fix this, this game has a lot of potential
Money grab!
by Did I say it's been 4 years? on 2020/11/25 00:16
Would be good, but it is designed so that playing without paying is difficult to do. I wouldn’t even mind if there was a flat fee for accessing a more streamlined game, but it costs 100 dollars for a few gems that might last you a day. Other than that, the game is great
Great but...
by Ekelle is me!!😁😁😁 on 2020/11/24 23:15
Ok so I love this game I’m an all time hp fan but i went and met with my “friend” rowen in the game and the game will not let me do anything else, LIKE WHAT HAPPENED. I have deleted and reinstalled the game game like four or five times!!! And it won’t fix its self I have read another review that this happened to them as well but they were a lot further in the game. I really want to play this game again I will be getting a new phone soon and I’m hoping that when I transfer everything this game will restart. If it makes the game completely restart I will be happy even then. If you can help me out and fix this I will be so happy!! I hope I helped and I hoping you can help me. ☺️☺️☺️☺️😊😊😊😊😊😊😁😁😁😁😁😁 Thank you!!!
Best game ,but
by beachbro727 on 2020/11/24 23:01
This is the best mobile game ever, 1 major flaw, energy. You definitely could fix this by adding a way to earn extra or better refill of energy, or just tapping it, pls do it! Another idea is a way to but infinite energy, I would def buy that please add
love it!!
by Christina Madison on 2020/11/24 22:33
love this game
Pretty fun!
by anne_beus on 2020/11/24 20:57
I enjoy this app. However, it takes a long time for energy to restock and they don’t have very good long hair does for girls

The Best Hogworta Experience Ever!
by NotPixelatedRose on 2020/11/24 18:35
I loved how it was so great and I love the experience I wish I was there!
won’t let me continue
by OliviaS 112 on 2020/11/24 16:03
it’s great but after I didn’t play for a while and I was like seven stages through the year I continued playing it and after I completed my first year I kept exiting me out and I wouldn’t get to continue onto my second year 😭
App
by randomperson157888937 on 2020/11/24 15:40
I give this a 4 out of 5 because I like this game but there is somethings that annoy me likes ads popping all of the time. But I still recommend this app it is really fun and exciting. Also, I think that the timer for the needful should be shorter like 1 or 2 minutes because some of the things take away lots of energy.
Needs work on NOTHING!
by hdjsfk on 2020/11/24 15:19
THIS GAME IS PERFECT NO DOUBT I LOVE THIS GAME!!
It’s fun until it freezes
by BatsandRoses on 2020/11/24 14:07
I loved this game! And it was so much fun until it started freezing. I deleted it and re downloaded it to see if that would work and it didn’t. Now I can’t play and I’m truly upset about it as this was my favorite game.
fun!!
by bandaid on my tod on 2020/11/24 12:48
i love this game!! you can pick what you say and i feel like i’m actually at hogwarts!!🧙🏼‍♀️🦉✨📚
Energy
by shadedhoney on 2020/11/24 09:25
I stopped playing this a while ago because everything took too long since you have a limited amount of energy and not too many ways to restore it. Also I am not a huge fan of things being locked behind different in game currencies that you don’t naturally get enough of from just playing. The constant need to pay real money to progress is annoying. I understand the game is free and they don’t have ads every 5 secs so they have to make money some how but like most free games if you want to advance, you need gems, coins, energy etc and most of these are more easily obtained from spending real money making a game that wouldn’t take too long to beat take forever because I am not spending 50plus dollars in order to get enough gems to skip the quests that are locked behind a timer. Or to buy more energy because every thing you do pretty much takes all your energy. Also I don’t know what has changed but the load screen takes forever now and if you leave the app for whatever reason, now you have to go through the beginning load screen nonsense all over again. That didn’t used to be the case and it’s really annoying now that it takes forever to load.
Trying to start the game, character invisible
by Darthcarrots on 2020/11/24 06:37
So I’ve been trying to start this game for a long time, and I cannot get a character to appear for me to create a student. The options are there, but I can’t see what I’m doing.
Ok listen
by Shadow Orbispo on 2020/11/24 06:02
I’m playing it right and I finished my year 1 but it keeps kicking me out of the game every time I try and get ahead is that normal??? Or nah?
Un juego interesante para fans de Harry Potter
by gogodkxux on 2020/11/24 04:57
La franquicia de J.k Rowling está muy elaborada muy parecido a los libros y películas del “Señor de los anillos” pero hacer un juego relacionado a “Harry Potter”es algo complicado pero este juego es muy personalizado para el jugador ya que es un tipo “Los sims” los gráficos están bastante bien ,la trama es muy interesante y el desarrollo de personajes pero mi única queja es que el juego te pide dinero para objetos del juego pero igual yo lo conformo en conclusión esta genial :3
Love the game but...
by 💜ortiz💜 on 2020/11/24 04:24
To start I absolutely love this game and recommend it but it takes way to long to get energy’s and you can’t really do anything with out them. I hope that the developers will lower the energy time because 4 minutes for 1 energy is ridiculous. For me it takes 2 hours and 30 minutes to refill all my energy’s!!
Fix
by 👄Cece on 2020/11/24 04:18
It’s a great game but the waits on quests is ridiculous. The amount you need for pets and clothes as well needs to be reduced. Another Thing I certainly can’t stand is that the energy only goes up to 25 and I can never finish what I need without waiting hours. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix this and make it better for us. I’m not the only one disappointed here with these issues.
Love it
by LindseyJahn on 2020/11/24 03:32
I’m only on the beginning of chapter 2 and it’s awesome! I’ll update next chapter! Okay, I’m on chapter three and I agree with people who say there’s a energy problem. It takes a while to get more energy. I think it should be at least two minutes for five energy points. Please consider! Bye!
Amazing game
by đėªđ īńšîđę on 2020/11/24 03:07
I love this game and I was obsessed with it for a while but now I tend to forget about it because of the energy bar. Whenever I run out of energy (which happens very quickly), I wait another hour or two to get all the energy back but it makes me restart. It gets super annoying and it makes things hard to finish. But besides that, everything about the game is very good!<3
Keeps crashing
by #imtheawesomest on 2020/11/24 02:46
I got the game a few months ago and I love it but the game keeps crashing I finished the fourth year and was trying to do the feast but it crashed right after everyone was welcomed I tried deleting it and reinstalling it but nothing changed it’s really annoying because it is a very good game and I want to continue.
LESS TIME FOR ENERGY
by person 349 on 2020/11/24 02:37
I think it’s fun and a good game but waiting for energy is the worst! I have been waiting for energy and It takes forever. I used all my diamonds on energy.
Great game
by oooooobhoih on 2020/11/24 02:29
Awesome game I love it
Energy and Gems
by SiriusJamesRemus on 2020/11/24 01:11
Great game however the energy part isn’t much fun, having to wait for energy has caused me to lose some of the special quests. Also we should be able to buy gems with the coins we get! It’ll be much easier for people who don't have the money to spend on a game like this and it’ll make it much more fun.
Good game but needs work
by notcuos on 2020/11/23 23:19
This game is really fun but it has some big problems like.... the energy be taking way to long like don’t nobody got time to be waiting four minutes for one energy and plus I was really excited to be finishing my first year but I can’t even go pass the dinner without it crashing. Also some of the prices are pretty absurd because they are very expensive for the items but it would take you a while to save up for them. But overall it’s an amazing game but I would love it even more if I can get pass it without crashing.
Great, except for...
by 4LeighCLOver on 2020/11/23 21:07
Super fun game, can’t believe it’s free! One big complaint, though, is that every time they offer something (like energy, gems, or coins) if you watch an ad... it literally has never worked. I’ve tried it like 10 times and after watching the ad, the app freezes on a loading screen forever and the only way to get out of the frozen screen is to close out the app and restart... upon which, the “free” gems or energy or coins they promised have not been credited, even though I watched the dang ad! So that’s my one complaint. Other than that this game is great!
It is not as good as I expected
by Crabby21 on 2020/11/23 20:01
So I need to change I to a which because I’m a wizard and I don’t know how to do it
trash
by jordyn sutton on 2020/11/23 19:37
it took f o r e v e r to load the first time i opened it, and i was on wifi as recommended. now, it doesn’t take that long to load, but as soon as i get to the customize character, nothing loads. i can’t see the character or what anything looks like. please fix this!
Frozen and barely in the game
by RxHokie on 2020/11/23 19:24
Frozen within 10 minutes and won’t let me surpass. Cool concept but buggy
Hate the new Quidditch Event!!
by Jonathan Tenenbaum on 2020/11/23 19:09
It distracted me from actual Quidditch gameplay and main story/quest line. Prizes were “average.” Please take out!!! Wasn’t fun or worth the time. Srry. Remove the Energy!!!!!!
Love it! Except...
by Beatrix Riddle on 2020/11/23 18:06
So I love it! I just wish I could be a bad to the bone Lestrange! I love Bellatrix Lestrange! But that can’t be my last name “Lestrange” or Riddle which makes me extremely sad. Also I wish that classes could be taken with real players that are in your year. And in your common room I would love to chat with fellow students! And ya know have different stories because my brother plays and he also has a brother named Jacob in the game and I just wish it would be different stories.
Love you game!
by iejejdjdnsdoeoak on 2020/11/23 14:56
Hi! How are you today? I’ve been playing this game sense the very morning it came out and I had a few questions about the game like, are we going to do anything about graduating from Hogwarts?, are we going to meet the Harry or Ron anytime?, and when is the 7th year being released? I hope you could answer these questions for me and keep up the good work!
Y can't I continue?
by galaxy savage😎😜😎😜😎 on 2020/11/23 14:34
I have to be honest this game is OFF THE HOOKS! I love the game! It's pretty cool! And u can make ur own choices! But there A BIG PROBLEM to the game! I've did a lot and Its the end of my first year! But then when I try to go in the game it loads then it suddenly takes me back to my home screen. Weird right? I really wanna continue and see what happens in year 2 but it keeps glitching me out of the game!!!!! Even if you wanna go to the beginning off the game if you wanted to start over again it won't let you! It doesn't work even if you delete the game and install it again, it won't work either way.If people can't even start year 2 then what's the point of the game? U guys gotta fix this problem or else people won't wanna play ur game.😕 CREATORS OF HOGWARTS MYSTERY IF U WANT THOUSANDS OF PLAYERS PLAYING UR GAME U GOTTA GET RID OF THESE REDICULOUS GLITCHES PLS LISTEN TO ME PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO GO TO OTHER YEARS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!!_ur friend galaxy savage😎😝😜🤓😒
Fun game but
by CohenEMT on 2020/11/23 11:07
Love the story but I can’t hardly enjoy it with the energy going out constantly.
Sickly game ever
by Jon the fast on 2020/11/23 09:44
It not a good game they make the wrest game ever
Pretty addicting
by Summer meh on 2020/11/23 03:50
Old review: “I kept seeing ads for this on YouTube and i decided to download it. I know very little about Harry Potter but I downloaded this because I love 3D games that let u decide on how you want the story line to go and being able to design ur own character. What I love about this game is that I haven’t have to use actual spending money from my Apple account, so all of the energy I have been using is all free. Though it does require patience to wait for the energy, it’s completely worth it to me cuz I haven’t felt a need to use my real money. I also like that it doesn’t force me to buy stuff with my real money or limits me on what I could have (like past games have.) and it’s not ad ridden. It’s been a while since I’ve found a good game like this and I’ve been thinking about it nonstop ever since I downloaded it. The one downside is the waiting time for the energy when I’m in a very long class but it still allows me to take a break to let it recharge so that I don’t fail a class. Overall I’d rate this app a 5/5 and its rare for me to rate anything a 5/5.” Updated review: same thing as I said before, really well made. I haven’t played it in a while but I actually recently got into the series so I have more knowledge than I used to so I’m playing it again. It has new updates (though I haven’t seen all the updates yet) new pets, clothes, makeup, and even room decorations have been added which wasn’t in the game before. It still has a wait time for the energy to reload once you run out but your still not forced into having to use real money to get through any of the game. I will say that even tho this doesn’t exactly pertain to the original movies and books, it’s still very interesting and I like the story lines. Merula can just be very very annoying I will say. I have other friends who play this and they like it as well. 10/10.

I accidentally clicked finish on my avatar and after that it won’t let me redo the look at my avatar at all and I’m really mad because I look like a boy and I’m a girl it’s just making me really mad and I don’t even want to play the game anymore now so if you’re reading this the makers of this game please let me change look at my avatar whenever I want to

It’s the one of the best games and it’s awesome
Movable characters
by kiara2.0 on 2020/11/23 00:45
This is an awesome game! But maybe you should make it to where the characters move and you control where they go instead of having them stand while you move the screen. And maybe fix some of the characters because I played the duel with mérela and my character glitched through the other character standing next to me. Thanks. Other than that I loooooovvvveeeee this game!!!!
A bit of a let down...
by bumble bear potato on 2020/11/22 23:34
When I saw the adds I thought, wow this seems really fun, and being a Harry Potter fan I had decent expectations. I get into the game and the first thing that bugged me was the animation. It’s nothing like the adds and I hated it, but I kept going. And it’s so demanding of where you go and what you do, and you can’t walk around because it won’t let you if you have something to do. You can’t walk around period. I would recommend this to kids that can read and are easily entertained. But if your like me and enjoy open-world adventure games, don’t play this.
Love it
by Virgfhvc on 2020/11/22 22:52
LOVE IT SO MUCH
Flaws
by unonus on 2020/11/22 22:39
I’m giving this 4 stars because I didn’t get the outfit that won the contest that I was looking forward to and would actually make my character look a bit cool. Also the special events give you way too little time you should have about 6 days to do them not 4. Also when is the second quidditch cup coming! Lastly, the energy takes way too long to refill and I know it’s for marketing but not all of us want or are allowed to pay( I know you pay in gems but then you have to buy gems and on and on) I just want to play a fun game. Lastly, in the full marks I’m doing right now there’s a person with less points than me but he’s in 5th place and I’m in 6th so can you please fix that because it’s not fair.
Please remove the energy system
by treyoungg on 2020/11/22 22:20
I am going to start off by saying this game is a very diverse and fun game. There is only one problem, the energy system. I would love to play this game 24/7 but sadly good things have to end im tired of sitting there and waiting for more energy to come in. I guarantee you take it out this game could be very big, and having this system is making you lose players. Please take out the energy system!!!!!
I don’t like the energy thing
by Meanreannnb on 2020/11/22 22:18
So there is a thing we’re you lose energy and you have to wait a while for it to come back witch I don’t like
One thing
by Gacha Angle on 2020/11/22 22:13
I love the game can you just make it where you can change your house/ reset with out Facebook thank you
Its not a good game😕
by 0p@/ on 2020/11/22 16:35
I really want to enjoy this game but it wont let me finish the first year. I want to continue the story but if you don’t have a high preference phone i do not recommend this game. I am really sad 😢 because I loved the game if it would let me finish i would give it a 5 star 🌟
It’s good but has issues
by the apps horrible on 2020/11/22 16:19
There are a few things about this game that make it’s absolutely marvelous features more of an eh-. One the notebook ratio they have. You can get pets and cosmetics in exchange for brown notebooks; however though e brown notebook would be less rare compared to the others you will most certainly find the others as much, I’m in year 4 and I’ve only accumulated 50 brown notebooks. I know a few people who are quitting the game due to the struggle to accumulate any of these things. The best choice to get something worth 140 notebooks is to finish the game or pay for it. Even if you do pay for it you get around four notebooks for 11 dollars.
Great game!
by arianator😘 on 2020/11/22 15:32
I have only had this game for a day, and I LOVE it. However, the energy is kinda annoying. It takes a long time to recharge.
Totally recommend !

I’ve loved Harry Potter for a while now and this game is so much fun and creative! The graphics are nice as well as the gameplay.
2nd year
by weeeeeè on 2020/11/22 15:27
It is an amazing game. But one you go to the feast to end the first year and start the second it crashes. No matter how many times you exit and try again it crashes. Which if it was not for that and how hard it is to get the books it would’ve gotten 5 stars and I hope I can continue to play soon because I was excited to meet new people and learn more quidditch related things.
This game is great just one thing
by great..lamama on 2020/11/22 15:15

This game is really good it’s fun. And I really feel like a real witch. But it would be better if they gave us more freedom in the game.
Why are you guys deleting my comment?

Seriously do not download this game
Not enough play time
by Sheh Thead on 2020/11/22 10:17
I downloaded the game today & I was beginning to enjoy it but I’m losing interest FAST. It has potential to gain your interest to keep playing but most quests require a lot of energy & you’re not given a lot of it. That’s if the quest is ready. You have to spend money for energy to only play a couple minutes PLUS you have to spend money for gems just to play the quest.
It could be so fun
by MsAnaH on 2020/11/22 07:03
The game has a great premise and what I can play has been enjoyable; however, it seems as if you HAVE to pay to make progress (unless you’re willing to go at a snails pace). The energy, which you need for almost everything, runs out quickly and it takes so long to wait for it to replenish. The “cost” of items, pets, or other resources is so high and the game doesn’t provide many ways to earn the currency... basically telling you to pay up if you want to be able to get anything. I would rather have to pay up front for the app.
Pretty good...but

To start this off with, I'd like to say that although I have an iPhone 5, I don't have any of these problems for other apps. First off all, I can't get past the end of year feast on year one, because the game keeps crashing. I would like to play it on my other devices that are newer, incase that is the problem, but I don't have a facebook, which is the only way I'm allowed to sign in through. I want to be able to use my email or at least my google account which is normally included on other apps. Second of all, the waiting time, punishments and prices are all to high, I've had to lose 5 house points because I didn't want to spend 30 diamonds to refill my energy that takes 4 minutes to refill each energy point, and if I leave the app for a while, the energy can only fill up to 25. Also, I was searching for pet food to try to get my xp up, but after I got the required 1 star, I had to wait an hour until I could continue the game or I had to spend all of my energy on it which wasn't even enough. Thirdly, I had to wait for 1-3 hours to continue the story and there wasn't anything to do in the meantime, like talking to npc's, and getting more little side quests, which also take a lot of time/work. Side quests are supposed to be easy little tasks to do in-between larger quests. For example, you could help a teacher and get some xp, house points, friendship points or energy. Also the main npc's like rowan and ben are really cliche, I don't feel connected to them at all, and ended up feeling closer to merula, who I didn't have any options to get closer to at all. All in all, the idea of the game is great, and as a harry potter fan, I'd probably love if it weren't for these small things that add up after time. Hogwarts was designed amazingly, and I really appreciate the thought. But it feels like a knock off of what harry went through, instead of your own journey through Hogwarts. Edit: I have now signed in with Facebook, and have tried it on a different device, it still doesn’t work
wont let me date malfoy

THIS GAME WONT LET ME DATE MY LOVER AND IT TAKES ME FOREVERR FOREVER TO GET MY ENERGY BACK GOODBYE END OF THE STORY
OMGGG
by Parttime pumper on 2020/11/22 04:01
This is BYE FAR my favorite game EVER. I don’t get tired of the levels the graphics are PHENOMENAL and I can’t get ENOUGH of the storyline! The pets are the cutest ever and I love all the clothing options! My only suggestion would be a way to earn more gems. I’ve bought quite a few different packs and especially event themed ones, but you should make it easier to acquire them. Energy as well. The money that I use for gems basically goes straight to energy and I have no gems left for the fun things I planned on purchasing. I, personally, would be more Inclined to purchase more gems and packs if I could enjoy the perks of having them. Please make it easier to have gems and energy that’s all!!!! <3 thank you!!!!!!!! 🥰😍🤣
I love it
by Me07242015 on 2020/11/22 02:12

Takes to long to get energy
by Kittens mittens 😻😺😻😺 on 2020/11/21 23:11
I am a year 2 student on the game, and I do not have very much energy. It runs out so quickly and it takes 4 MINUTES to get ONE POINT OF ENERGY. Seriously, I don’t want to wait about 20 minutes just to get 5 points! Fix it ASAP
Great game at all but I guess I’m just being picky
by won't load prodigy on 2020/11/21 23:11
I love this game I’d give it a five star rating if there was a few differences including… Music or sound of some sort. If the characters actually talked instead of just having written down on the bottom of the screen. And probably more stuff I just got the game today but I’ve been playing for a while now and it’s kind of boring that I can’t do more. I love the game and all though. My rating is 30 but I’m putting it off at five so that more people can see it.
Great!
by JadeLifeTree on 2020/11/21 22:27
I love this app, the graphics are amazing and the plot’s interesting. I would recommend that you add something to do so you can get more energy for your character, maybe a mini game or something? Otherwise it’s amazing!
AWESOME GAME but needs some changes
by aedrftghyuujii on 2020/11/21 20:53
This game is AWESOME for Harry Potter lovers. If you aren’t in love with Harry Potter then you might not know some of the spells or the people. Speaking of people, I love all the different people you can meet, but you don’t meet Harry, Ron, Luna, or Hermione. I want to meet Harry most but he never shows up on friendships. Another thing that needs to be changed is that you should be able to get gems and energy with the coins that you have, you should be able to get them without real money. Some people don’t have Apple money. Thank you, Poop
Is this still a demo?
by MyNameTari on 2020/11/21 20:05
Cuz I can’t leave my dorm for some reason. Help?????!
Good but crashes
by ??!??!??!! on 2020/11/21 18:56
This game is really good but one BIG problem. Once I finish year one it crashes. I reset it and it still crashes. I cannot pass year one so pls fix this issue. Thx and I play on iPod. (Tip: If you fix the issue then I will do five stars. Thx.)
Problems I’ve had
by jan l. luoma on 2020/11/21 15:31
I’m having to start over. It keeps freezing up. Doesn’t always give me my energy balls, or gems. Kicks me out at an important time. I love the game tho. That’s why I’m trying to reload it. Gotta find out how now.
hi
by Maximkraft on 2020/11/21 14:36
I love harry potter
Eh
by Spookychicken46 on 2020/11/21 14:35
Good but there are a few things that need to be fixed. I feel 4 minutes for 1 energy is a ridiculous wait time. I feel there should be a sliding scale for how many gems something cost. If you’re almost done with an event part but you run out of time and only need one star I feel like it shouldn’t be 55gems to get more time when all you’re going to do is use a few energy. Instead, it should be based on how much time you have left. I’m also pretty tired of watching an ad and not getting the energy, coins, gems etc that I’m supposed to get with watching the ads. Love the game for what it is, I just think some things could be improved upon.
Great Gameplay Except for 1 Thing
by Brytonik Leegend on 2020/11/21 14:28
The storyline and multitude of quests makes this game so great. The use of an energy bar is what brings the score down. (Waiting 4min for just 1 bar, the limited small energy capacity, and the huge energy use just to do tasks)
Great
by Gr3yw0lfeqq on 2020/11/21 14:22
Love this game so much.
Harry Potter and the crashing mystery
by belugawhale421 on 2020/11/21 13:29
Have fun playing this game while it crashes on you non stop and you can’t get anything done. Honestly the creators should really spend more time fixing crashes then making whatever because the lower west floor has the worst crashes.
Sorry

Ok So Its A Good Game Fun Entertaining Its A Good Rpg But Why Cant You Reset Your Whole Game? Yes Some May Like Having Their Whole Game Saved. But Shouldnt You Have An Option To Restart?
I love the game but...
by imjusttellingthetruthuknow on 2020/11/21 04:30
I’ve lost two ‘quest’ now because the game won’t load & my time runs out. Even though my wifi is connected, it still will not load. I’m very aggravated because I love the game, but it’s ridiculous that I can’t even play it when I want.
Please go back to the original dueling system!!!
by Gaubstopper on 2020/11/21 03:38
The way the dueling system was originally was better. If you were lower leveled, you had a chance at beating some of the higher leveled players. Loser didn’t get a turn so if you guessed right, you could win. It was a little frustrating because it was a total guess, but fair. Now that’s been changed and has taken all the fun out of dueling - you get a turn no matter what, so if you’re a higher level, all you have to do now is spam your highest damaging spell and you’ll win almost every time guaranteed, even with the lower leveled players spamming healing spells. It’s no fun anymore because there’s no strategy or variety. Additionally, this makes it IMPOSSIBLE to beat Chiara on the timed quest, since all of your attributes will be one level lower than hers (I've played this challenge before on my old phone a couple of times and it doesn’t matter what level your attributes are at - her will ALWAYS be one higher), no matter how skilled you are. Especially if you’re playing this at year 2 - you know like 3 spells and don’t stand a chance. Please revert back to the old system, this was a horrible change.
Challenging and Fun!

Disappointed

I never write reviews for apps but I was really looking forward to playing this game but I can’t even make my avatar! I can’t see any of the options to choose from.
Not loading

I’ve been having problems getting it to load while I’m on WiFi and cellular data but I’m not gonna give it one star until I know what this game is actually like
Almost* Perfect 🧙🏻‍♀️
by Airfield munch on 2018/11/14 07:24
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!
It’s Great but...
by Truthful Game reveiwer on 2020/06/04 15:33
This game for many Harry Potter fans wanting more of the magic world of witch craft and wizardry is amazing and fun, it’s also good for people looking for a little thrill. This game doesn’t have ads popping up every few seconds and I had this game a while ago and was easily sucked in being a Harry Potter fan myself. I later forgot the game and ended up deleting it when just recently I got it back and it has honestly been pretty fun but I can see why I had come to forget it in the first place, the energy. Firstly, you don’t even start off with that much but on top of that, all of the things you need to do require a lot of energy and when your out you either have to wait a few minutes for them to give you like one (which won’t do you any good) or you have to watch a video which really only gets you three which isn’t much better. I usually wait till the next day to get full energy but there’s also a time limit that you have to follow in many quests and classes which is usually up by the next day so I honestly can’t find a good solution to this problem, maybe you can try to fix some things. The final thing is I don’t think you can restart the game, even when deleting it for a while. I honestly want to start a new house with a new character since I can’t remember what was going on last time but I really don’t think that’s an option, maybe you can also do something about that to? Besides that this game is pretty fun and one that I won’t forget for a while.
I love this game but.....
by Kaye Moon on 2020/10/24 01:25
I’ve been obsessed for the longest time, and I was super excited when I finished the first year. However I couldn’t even finish the welcoming feast in year two before the game crashed. So I said “Alright, I’ll just restart the game.” So I did. It started the feast over so I went through it again but in the same spot it crashed again. I tried several more times and again and again it crashed and would start me back over. This made me so so upset because this happened on my previous phone too, which was an iPhone 5 and I thought that this new iPhone 6 was going to be better. And it was! Until the second year feast. I just really wish that I could play the game all the way through without getting pushed back when it crashes. I can’t continue the game anymore and it saddens me because I really looked forward to playing the rest of it. I can’t even finish events anymore because the game will crash while I’m playing at random. I hope maybe the developers and people who work on the game can fix this, because I love this game. It’s so fun and whimsical and makes me laugh. It takes me back to being a kid and loving HP and watching it during Christmas time and Halloween. I adore the characters, the story is so compelling, and the visuals are really cool and often funny. I really just want to know what’s going on, and why it keeps crashing, and I hope it gets fixed. Thank you for a great game while it lasted, I hope that one day I may play again.
Great Game But.....
by Pay up or Fail on 2019/10/14 21:15
I’ve always loved Harry Potter! I read the books, seen the movies, and was fascinated with all the magic and the idea of going to a school for witches and wizards. I think this game does a great job of including people into that world with the accuracy of the characters and the story elements. However, there are things you should definitely try to improve and fix. I think the first one is the energy and the constant tapping on objects to fulfill tasks. In a way it reminds me of the sims mobile except it’s Harry Potter themed lol. But the energy tank is not enough and it is bothersome. It doesn’t make me want to play the game more it’s just this thing that gets in the way of the fun I’m having and almost ruins it. This is a story based game, and the energy issue gets in the way of enjoying the story. With the sims it’s ok because there is no story really. Your building something (the sims life) so it’s different. I could barely even finish one class without running out of energy. At least the sims gets you through a few events lol. And then the vigorous tapping isn’t as bad as the energy but finding a way to make things like the class activities to be more interactive would be cool. The last thing I’ll say is that I know this game is fairly new and hasn’t been out long. So there’s plenty of time to improve. The sims did it, for you it won’t be any difference. When these issues and little annoyances are fixed you’ll have a lot more people playing.
Good game, but...
by Tgwolfy918 on 2020/05/09 19:09
I really like this game. It’s fun, interesting, it’s got great graphics, and it has a good storyline. However, I think there’s a few things this game could add to make it a truly 5-star game. The first way it could be improved is by making the game more interactive. Instead of just tapping on things to use energy, it would be great if we could actually control our character as they do things. This could still cost energy, and it would make the game more fun for the players. Additionally, it would be great if we could customize our Animagus form. In both the books and the movies, Animagi still have defining personal characteristics in their animal form. This could be added to the game through a one-time customization when you get your Animagus form, where you could then change your fur/feather color, eye color, and other characteristics to look more like yourself. One last thing I think could make the game better is diversity in the romance options. It would be nice if instead of only having six people to pick from, you could choose to have a crush on any of your friends. If this isn’t possible, it would at least be nice to have Bill as a romance option since I believe you can have a crush on him early in the game, but he isn’t available for the dating side quest or the Celestial Ball. Whether or not these things get added, Hogwarts Mystery is a great game, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Harry Potter.
Good Game- A couple of problems
by Hogwarts💙💙💙💙💙 on 2019/04/22 21:39
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.🙄
Yikes
by Vadikka on 2020/06/30 04:51
This game is so fun. Relaxing and keeps you coming back for more. Even if you don’t have money to spend you can still progress. However, sometimes when I watch the daily reward ads, they do not register an award, even after watching the entire 30 second ad through. Also noticed that “energy” doesn’t fill up sometimes if you leave the game running in the background of your device. Almost like the timer stops. I left the game for 40 minutes, came back and energy was still zero. Also if your “energy” isn’t on refill timer, the extra energy you can collect around Hogwarts doesn’t count towards refilling your bar. So that’s not very nice, oh and don’t bother playing Gryffindor House because you will always be in last place in “events”. Another strange occurrence is while doing tournament type events with 25 other people, a random new player will show up in the list and suddenly be in first place, pushing all the original people down or people will disappear all together only to show up hours later. Or you will be neck and neck with someone for first place and suddenly they are 1000 points a head of you which is impossible in the full marks tournament. Last thing, Hagrids storyline is designed against you. You will never have enough notebooks to “adopt” creatures. The Cruppy story was angering considering you spend over 3 hours wasting energy just to find out there isn’t a puppy left for you. That angered me. Don’t buy into their greed unless you have money to burn.
I’m absolutely obsessed!!!🌺
by DANCE4EVER!!!🌸 on 2020/04/24 23:56
This is an AMAZING game!!! I love it so much and literally play it everyday. Although it is very interactive and fun and makes you feel like your an actual student at Hogwarts, there are some things I wish you could do. First off it is a bit frustrating that for some story parts of the game you have to wait about 8 hours to do. Second is that it would be nice if you could pick when you get to do the special events, like host the student from Beauxons, or befriend a werewolf. I am almost done with my second year and realized that I might not get to do “ Christmas With The Weaslys “ The last thing is that I am very confused about when you get to learn lessons that aren’t required to move on with the story. I was thinking the other day maybe that’s what you learn in your 7th year. Because in the little book icon were you see the lessons you’ve learned, there is nothing for year 7. This just some feedback that I hope will make the game even more fun than it already is. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope this helps. I’d also like to add that I Love that you added the quittich option... I’m sorry if I spelled that wrong. I saw that there something new coming and I cannot wait to see what it is!!! I recommend this game to everyone, even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, and I think this game will make you one! 🤗
Great Game! However has a couple problems
by Agelina N. on 2019/10/27 20:39
Hogwarts Mystery is such a fun, exiting game! I love the friends you make, challenges you must over come, and how well the developers made Hogwarts. In fact, Hogwarts looks a lot like it in the movies. Something I loved was how they made Peeves. It’s so cool! They did a really good job using the clues in the books to make peeves. One thing I wish could change is the energy bonuses. I dislike that you have to wait 4 whole minutes just to get 1 energy bonus. If you don’t want to wait, spend your gems. The thing is if you don’t have enough, you have to buy it. If you are like my friend, who’s parents won’t buy you anything. I totally understand! Otherwise, you should play this game. I also enjoyed that I was able to pick what house I was in. I’m a Hufflepuff so I was able to just pick Hufflepuff. My other friends who are in the other houses showed me each of the common rooms. They are spectacular!! In my opinion, my favorite common room is the Hufflepuff common room. It’s so cool! You’ll love it! You don’t have to pay very much for anything, Unless you want to support the game, witch in my opinion you should. I wish that you could pick your own friend in the beginning because Rowan is very nerdy and kinda ravenclaw ish. But anyways you should play this game!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for reading my whole review and yeah, maybe I’ll see your review
No way to go but up.
by Strikewillow on 2018/05/23 01:33
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.
Uhhh... What?
by Problemed Person. on 2018/05/28 18:24
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.
PLEASE READ: Love this game but needs to change....
by SkittlesWolf12 on 2018/07/05 17:55
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.
Improved so much ❤️
by unicornvolleyball on 2020/10/09 14:33
I have complained a lot about the energy but it has improved so much since I have and a lot of others have complained about it. So it doesn’t look like they are gonna take away energy 🙄 but they have improved it so much, it will now let you watch a add to get more energy which I love I have watched a lot of adds but that’s not a problem for me because I don’t want to pay money to buy energy and they are making money by me watching adds to get some (how I see it, it is a win-win) but there is a little problem it only lets you watch so many adds and then it doesn’t let you watch them anymore :( but that isn’t the main problem it takes 4 minutes for the energy to charge up to ONLY 1 which I think is ridiculous and so does many other people I think it should be 30 seconds for each energy to fill up and I think that would be way more efficient because not everybody has the time to wait four minutes for just one to fill up when you have a lesson that only has an hour to it and you can’t keep on checking back so a lot of times I will lose the lesson and have to start over and then I lose all my energy again doing that and then it just starts over so I never really get a lesson done so it would help if you reduce the time a little bit but other than that it’s is such a good game and the developers deserve some credit for how well this game is made ❤️😍
So fun! But... UPDATE
by catpapi on 2018/06/27 18:39
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. Update: 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!
so much fun, but has it’s drawbacks
by one23dee on 2018/06/29 20:33
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!
Love this game but it has some big issues
by nerdsunite on 2020/01/02 05:15
I would love to give this game 5 stars but I can’t. The story is great I love the game. the idea of the app is good but the energy thing is ridiculous. I cannot go to an event without using all my energy so I have to wait and there are so many events to do so most of the time I am not continuing the story just trying to get enough stars just so I can START the lesson so I can continue the story. It takes way too much time and I just want to continue the story. The amount of gems it takes to get a good amount of energy is ridiculous and getting gems is hard so then you have to buy gems for a ridiculous amount of money. You also have to use gems so you can start an event. Or you could wait 8 hours. That is ridiculous. The creators are obviously trying to make money but I am not spending a single penny on this game. This game isn’t even finished, I saw another review that said you can’t get past year six. The game is filled with bugs and I keep getting kicked out. One time it took a month before I could play. Creators: Finish the game please! Still gonna keeps this app on my phone and play but if something doesn’t change soon I won’t spend anymore time on this game. Other people have the same complaints but I still had to write this review. Creators need to see the complaints so they can fix the game. P.S I would love if you guys could let us switch houses. I accidentally picked Ravenclaw when I should be in Gryffindor. Just a tip!
Great game! 💯 would recommend.
by Smiles:)!!!!! on 2018/05/09 02:38
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!!
Misleading
by CT Mom 12 on 2018/05/29 15:15
This game has an interesting plot and clever features. I disagree with some of those who find the energy wait times and such disappointing; while they ARE sometimes painful, I think they’re fair in providing an incentive for spending without being too disruptive in their duration; you can still interact with the game and make progress in a meaningful way every day for free, and the hidden energy replenishes in a reasonable amount of time and is a fun feature. The price points for the gems are still a bit high; a lower price point would promote more buying. My biggest source of frustration in this development period is the fact that the full game has not been released; it currently ends near the end of year 3. Had I known this, I would likely have been more patient rather than spending gems to progress more quickly. Hopefully there will be some compensation for this in future releases. I also take issue with the button features when running out of energy; on several occasions I have accidentally hit the button to spend gems without intending to; I would like to see a confirmation window with a button in a different screen location before gems are spent. I think the game has potential, and look forward to future releases, but will not be purchasing further gems given what I now know. Without the criticisms above, I’d give the app 4-5 stars.
Alright
by TATPE3771 on 2018/04/30 01:08
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.
Addicting and Fun
by Jermor8 on 2018/08/09 12:52
I think this game is perfect! It tells you a story and you get to meet friends and increase your relationship level with them as well as your attribute points. You get to dress your character and buy pets. Many people complain about the energy, but I feel as though if there wasn’t energy, you would be done with the game too quick. I love that you can make choices to increase your attribute levels, which allows you to make special choices. I also love that by clicking on certain spots you get a point of energy. I also love that by buying a pet with in game money, you get a point of energy when they are sleeping and click on them. I love that these pets are helpful. The fact that you can increase your relationship with characters to get rewards and be able to bring them with you on quests is really cool, and to do that, you must answer Harry Potter trivia makes it even better. I like that you can duel with other characters, and the way to win is to have batter attribute levels, and know more stronger spells. I also like the special events that go on that allow you to get prizes, such as outfits, gems, and coins for getting a certain amount of stars in classes before the time runs out. The only thing I don’t like about this game is the glitches. It isn’t that bad though, it never got me frustrated, and I’m in my fourth year.
I love this but there are a few problems...
by Horselover4729 on 2018/07/23 15:35
This game is really good and I love it... but the are two problems I would like to mention. The first problem I have is the energy. I know there are plenty of reviews out there already mentioning the energy as a problem, but I want to mention it too. Four minutes is quite a long time to wait for just one energy... I think maybe one or two minutes would be better, or maybe one minute and thirty seconds. I am actually writing this review right now while I’m waiting for my energy to fill because I’m in the middle of learning a spell and I ran out of energy way to quickly and it takes too long to fill up again. You could also include maybe mini games that could earn you things like energy and coins or xp. The second problem I would like to mention is the spelling mistakes. Yes, I understand everybody spells things wrong every once in a while, I probably have some mistakes in this review, but the words that are spelled wrong are pretty much spelled wrong throughout the entire game. Some examples of the misspelled words are practice(in the game it is spelled as practise) and artifact(it is spelled as artefact in the game). I’m not a game maker or anything and I don’t know how hard it would be to go back and change the spelling, so I’m not going to ask for the spelling to be fixed unless it is too hard of a thing to fix. I really hope the energy gets changed though.
Problems
by Me060381 on 2019/06/07 15:28
I like the game, don't get me wrong but there are a lot of problems, mainly because of the 'not enough' bravery or knowledge or whatever options, it's frustrating it truly is especially if you are just new and charge in it, I find a constant error with everything when trying to pick an option and not having enough for that option, not to mention the reset! Honestly, Pokemon games way of resetting there game is a 1000 times easier then this, I have to download apps and things I don't want, not to mention my poor little phone can handle it all! Not to mention because of the high quality there's a lot of lag, which can be a problem when doing the 'focus' part of a trial in a class, this is a large reason why I rate this a 3 star, because everything seems good, at least I hope for now it's all good from then on Well.... except the prices on everything and anything, and the energy!!!!! That's way to long for one energy!!! It's honestly annoying!!!!! Especially if someone I used up all there energy and went alone on that one event with the vines(keep forgetting what those thorny vines are called) not to mention it's a hassle, but then there's the gems, oh god the gems, there WAY to hard to get when doing this stuff! They should be easier since so much of it is used to get items!!!! VERY expensive items if I might add!!!!! It's really and truly annoying, please try and fix these things and give warnings before hand on such things
Review Must Read
by FriendlyReviewer1 on 2018/07/09 12:22
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.
Great and Does Not Have To Cost Anything
by natashaspy55 on 2018/07/01 23:29
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.
Awesome!
by BobDaPotterhead on 2018/07/07 17:08
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! 👍😂
Amazing but frustrating
by KEde01 on 2019/07/18 20:01
I absolutely love this game. The detail behind the story and graphics and the accuracy is perfect. It’s so amazing seeing something I loved so much in my childhood and to this day come to life. That being said, I do wish there were more mini games that didn’t require energy. The amount of energy we receive is much too low for the amount needed to complete a task. By the time I’ve waited for my energy to refill my task has timed out and I have to start all over. I love the three mini games that allow you to gain a higher relationship with friends (the meal, gobstones, and butterbeer). I wish there were more opportunities like that, as it is fun if you know Harry Potter trivia, does not require energy, and high friendships is important later on in the game. If there is nowhere to put another game like this, then the time needed until you can have another meal with friends etc should be shorter. Right now it takes 9+ hours after playing once to play again. I also wish the tasks were more interactive as opposed to clicking on the screen until your energy runs out. I feel like it would be so much more fun if we could actually participate in the classes. I love the story and watching it progress, but I hate the energy system. Hopefully in future versions more mini games will be added or it will take less time for energy to replenish. Or ideally the energy will not be needed at all!
BEST GAME EVER!
by hanhandoggurls on 2019/02/25 17:49
This game is so amazing. It truly captures the experience of reading Harry Potter. I love how you can meet two of the Weasley kids and Tonks too! All the teacher look the same and have the same personality: Dumbledore is understanding and calm, Flitwick is kind, and Snape is horrible and hates everyone😆. No complaints at all but (remember: THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT) I just get frustrated waiting to get energy for the timed challenges and the time for the challenge runs out and I have to start over again. But I love how you can get extra energy around the castle by tapping painting and even Peeves. As you can tell I’m a huge Harry Potter geek and know everyone’s names by heart. The animals are cool too but I think just a rat is too expensive! It’s not like I want a rat but I want an owl or a cat and they are 10 time as expensive. But no complaints. What the heck would you use the pets for? I’m pretty sure they can give you extra energy. But that would be why they are so expensive. I love how you can customize you character to make it white or black, a redhead, blonde, or brunette. And I think the look of the clothes is spot on. I love the robes. My only wish is that I could have a cooler “bff”. No complaints but Rowan is kind of weird. Over all I love this game so so so so so so much. I would say way more but it would take you an hour to read it. Bye Bye!!
Cool initially but needs more ways to interact
by Alexander Ttt on 2018/05/31 18:48
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.
A fan that just wants to help
by Halfblooddork on 2018/05/11 12:47
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.
ALMOST Lived Up to the HYPE
by MrsKramit on 2018/05/02 03:18
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.
Please fix the energy
by 123432345654 on 2019/01/21 23:34
I have noticed a few problems. First there is wrong spelling all the time. Second there should be some other tasks that are quicker loading to get stuff done quicker. Third I can never get gems. I am not allowed to pay real money and I can not get more gems from anywhere. Fourth is the loading. The game takes about 5 seconds to load, and that does not seem like much, but for all the stuff it takes a lot of time away. Fifth is the fact that stuff like gobstones or pets or clothes is way overpriced. Also you should make it so when characters talk and you have the sound up, the just grunt and make noises. But the energy is the big problem. I would suggest that you either make so we can pay coins for energy, or make small tasks we do to win energy, or make the energy timer do that in 4 minutes you get 4. Not one per minute, but every four minutes you get four. If you look in all the other comments you have, nearly everybody who plays this game is complaining about the energy. You need to fix this! I put on a three hour challenge, use all my energy without even getting one star yet, wait an hour and a half, and then go back, get up to 2 1/2 stars, empty out all my energy, wait an hour and a half, and find out that it timed out and it says that I need to do the exact same thing over again without waiting for energy. That is practically just saying that you want us to fail or handover our money.
Please make energy time shorter!!
by CarolinaCountry333 on 2020/07/15 15:00
I have been playing this game for a few months, and am currently in year 2. I love this game so much! I love the storyline and side quests. However, I do have one small suggestion that will make your game infinitely better... could you please shorten the energy waiting time? Four minutes is a long time to wait for one energy, and that’s about 2 hours to wait for a full bar (my bar is currently only at a max of 28 energy’s). I, along with many other people, would love the game more of you could just shorten the waiting time by one or two minutes. It really cuts it close when a quest or class I’m in is about to end and I still waiting for more energy! I know a ton of people also have this same problem, and would be very happy if you shortened the time to two minutes. I have a couple friends who stopped playing this game, solely because the energy took too long to regenerate. Tons of people have left the game because of this one, easily fixable problem. Also, I’m not allowed to spend money on this app, since I’m still under the age of 18 and my parents won’t let me. I don’t have very many gems to buy energy with. This leaves me no other option to get energy than waiting. Developers, I am begging you, please shorten the energy wait time to two minutes per energy! It’s so frustrating to have to wait for four minutes for one energy.
Not what we hoped for
by Merjenta on 2019/02/06 06:31
I, like many others, hoped that this game would truly allow you to explore Hogwarts. I understand that’s quite a bit for an app, but surely it isn’t impossible. Let’s go over all the bad stuff first.. You basically have no choice but to follow the story line. You cannot interact with other characters unless prompted to do so. You need to unlock your lessons as the game progresses just as you can unlock certain parts of the castle as you move years while we know that in the books/movies, most of these classes and places are available to us. There are many inaccuracies with the dialogue and where characters are in certain chapters and the graphics could really be a smidge better. Also, where are the voices?? This game would’ve been better if it was a little more like the Sims or even allowed other players to show up in your game. I dislike that I cannot make my own choices and that certain tasks take so long to become available. I would’ve paid for the game outright to avoid some of these things. I know you’re trying to make gameplay a little longer, but with the money that you could’ve made just asking us to purchase the game instead of making it free, would’ve made so much of a difference and allowed the developers more of an option to take on these tasks. Otherwise, this game isn’t awful. The story is interesting and I enjoy the side tasks and classes. But for the HP fandom, it just needs MORE.
Fun to experience but painful to play
by Triskept on 2018/05/12 20:28
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.
Amazing game but..
by §Savage|Senpai§ ( the YTer) on 2020/11/16 15:52
I’ve always liked to watch Harry Potter movies, and read the books, so when I found out that there was a game for it, I was ecstatic! I looked for this game and found it. I was really happy that it was available on IOS. I was looking at the game, and found myself scrolling down to the reviews. I read a lot of them complaining about the energy. I was really confused, and thought it was nothing. That was until I played the game myself. You should not have to wait 4 minutes just to get 1 energy point or whatever. I am very frustrated. I decided to do some research to explain my point. In this game, you have a time limit to do things. For example, in Charms Class, you have a 3 hour time limit to finish it. So let’s say that I waited until my energy was filled (overnight), and then I entered charms class. I used up all of my 26 energy points, because that is what you see at the energy bar, and what the past 5 days of testing have told me. I have to wait 4 minutes to get 1 more energy point. To get a total of 26 energy points, it would take me approximately 1 hour and 44 minutes. I’m sure nobody wants to sit there and wait for that long. Maybe take away the time limit, energy limit, and shorten the energy making process to 15 seconds. Thank you. Respectfully, The Players of this game
A Need for Energy
by ILoveHamilton on 2018/12/28 15:21
I downloaded this app fairly recently, probably somewhere in November of 2018. The graphics are really good, the storyline is promising- it's actually a really good game. It gave me the feeling that I was actually at Hogwarts! I could make friends, investigate suspicious things, and have fun with my house mates. And, the overall story arc is well thought out and intriguing. There is only one thing that made me uninstall it. Yes, it was that big of a problem for me. Every activity you do, you need energy to complete. And you only have 25 energies after a long recharge. Which means, it could take hours to complete a task and move on. And, what is even more pressuring, is that these tasks have time limits. Which means if you don't have enough energy to complete them at a single time, you have to wait and risk losing your progress if the time is up while you are waiting for the energy recharge. I'm not sure if it's able to be done, but once I got to a certain point, I was at a standstill. Every time I tried to get to a new level, I would miss the time limit. Even through I tried to love this game as much as I could, and even though this game is a very lovable game, I had to give up due to me not being able to get out of first year. I hope someday, someone is able to get past the first year level and have true fun with the game. It has serious potential, I'm just sad I couldn't get to it. Maybe I will try again in the future.
2.8 stars. Sometimes fun, but the “tap the box and wait” approach is boring, and really uncreative
by Shooopylally on 2018/09/14 22:02
I am on Year 2 Chapter 7 and so far, it has been a great time. It’s wonderful to finally be a part of Hogwarts! My only problem is the waits. Many people deleted the app within the first few chapters, and I assure you, the vast majority of them did it because of having to wait hours to get out of devil snare. And if they didn’t delete it then, they probably did later because there’s tons more of waits like that and longer. 3 hour waits, 8 hour waits. You can hardly play for ten minutes before encountering something where you have to wait at least an hour. Plus with the style the game is in right now, there really isn’t much fun in hogwarts classes. HP fans have waited for YEARS to attend hogwarts classes, and now the best shot we have at that is this game, and frankly they are just kind of boring. You really just tap boxes, wait a couple hours, and tap more boxes . It’s really just not interactive or fun enough. The funnest parts are the duels, which are more interactive, and more challenging. And for classes i would really suggest stopping the “tap the box” approach. Maybe make students actually do work to brew a potion, grab the right ingredients, stir this amount of time. That’s way more fun than tapping boxes. Overall I find the game fun, but i also think there are lots of things that could make it WAY more fun. It’s just a little disappointing.
Straight up FIX THE ENERGY
by Will Taft on 2020/11/18 17:40
It really bothers me that I’m doing this Deathday event and I literally have 53 minutes left of it. I’ve dedicated 90% of my energy on it, and it’s about to end because this “Merula Stealing Food Task” has 5 stars... do you know how many energies it takes just to get 2 stars? 30 which means it will take 60 to get 4 and I’m going to needed 10 more for my last star. But we only get 27... This quite frankly ruins the gameplay. I downloaded this when it first came out. But then I stopped playing it because it wasn’t interactive enough, and I always ran out of energies. I’ve really had times where I was about to buy some. Which is what I know you guys want me to do, but I really just can’t. Like I’m so tired of running out of energy. And waiting 3 hours just to run out of energy again for the same task. There have been times when I was almost done, but I had to wait. But when I got back on I ran out of TIME!!!? And then I’d lose house points?!? Yeah speaking of house points it’s literally impossible to get any. I’m always in last place, and when I first played this game I lost the first 2 years which is the real reason why I stopped. Luckily though this time I won my first year. And I haven’t completed my second year yet because this Event seems fun and I want to complete it. Knowing I have so many classes I would have to attend and gain so many energies just for this event to end. I love this game but I’m slowly giving up...
Amazing game, but...
by heybestfran/pooh/sis😂 on 2020/06/25 00:22
Okay, not gonna lie. This game is so much fun and leads somewhere! It’s super interesting and the detail it puts in the castle is amazing! So, first off. The energy bar. I honestly think the energy bar doesn’t hold enough energy. It gives you like 30-40 which I don’t find enough. I recommend giving about 60. It takes 4 minutes for 1 energy to recharge, I honestly think that isn’t great and all the impatient people agree. Don’t get me started with the gems. For 1 hairstyle, your telling me it cost 50 gems?! Well you only earn many gems if you win the house cup, but if not you stuck with probably 20-30 gems. I honestly think that’s not enough and it makes people pay real cash. Hair. I think there should be more hair options. Most cost a lot of gems or coins or they just don’t fit someone’s look. Okay, here’s a complaint. When I was playing the game I did one of those things when you need 1 star to pass. I don’t like wasting energy so when I get to 1 star I just wait 2 hours. I could play with my dog, take a swim, draw, etc. I close the app for later.. Also, I know I said i’m impatient but, whatever. Anyways... I open the app and it says I didn’t even reach 1 star! I was pretty upset because I had to do this all over again and wait. Please fix this. Overall, this Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery is a amazing game! I recommend it for Harry Potter fans or others. :)
Crashes constantly
by grapefruits711 on 2019/11/21 22:26
To start off I’m actually going to talk about how this is a legitimately good game. Although there are complaints about the energy system, it isn’t that bad and helps you pace your gameplay. The storyline is genuinely interesting and the animations are well done: you can really tell how much effort the devs put in this and I’d like to thank them for that! The only main issue is the constant crashing. I’ve noticed that the courtyard and the lower floor - east are for sure the worst offenders, though recently the dungeon’s been acting up as well. This problem is especially frustrating since it’s been going on since the game’s birth. It got better since a while back (though those two sites would still crash ALL THE TIME) but recently they’ve been even worse than usual. Even trying to go sites within the Lower east floor, like the classrooms, cause the game to crash. And yes, I’ve tried restarting the game many times and even re-installing it. It’s just super annoying and disappointing that this issue has been going on for months (with numerous complaints from many, many people) but it never seems to be fully resolved. I’m not sure if this is because the devs are too busy designing hideous clothes and “🤡 make-up” or because this issue is somehow completely unresolvable. If it were to be fixed it would make the gameplay experience so much smoother and enjoyable. But taking the history of this glitch into account, I don’t think it’ll ever be fully fixed.
It isn’t bad
by lesterlily49 on 2018/12/12 17:23
I’m only in Year One, but my experience so far is not wonderful. The “energy” element is frustrating. To get through a Five Star lesson you need around 30-something energy points, and after you spend what you have, you need to wait four minutes for a single point to recharge. If you don’t mind games where you have to put down your device for a couple hours in order to keep playing, it isn’t bad at all, but I was hoping for something more engaging. This game is hardly mentally engaging. There is barely a mystery, you just have to keep slowly following the plot. Not only is it difficult to get through a single lesson, you sometimes need even more energy just to unlock the lesson. The classes themselves involve no challenge. All you do is tap things, trace shapes occasionally, and answer pretty easy Wizarding World trivia questions. All in all my criticisms are really just “too based on the energy element and not enough plot”. However I’m still playing. It’s okay as a time killer. The graphics are very nice and I like that you can name your pets and magical creatures. The plot isn’t the best, but it isn’t terrible. I like how certain responses to questions need a certain level of Knowledge, Empathy, etc, and how you can make decisions that affect the course of the game. If you don’t mind prolonged gameplay and very simple interaction this game might be worth it for you. And maybe it gets better after Year One. I’ll keep playing.
Fun, creative game hindered by energy points
by jorczy on 2020/06/30 00:50
I first want to start off by saying that this is my favorite Harry Potter game there is!!! I haven’t gotten that far yet but I’m already in love with the story and side quest!! However, I have a major grievance with the energy points. I understand that they’re to slow it down so it takes more time for the user to play, but I think they slow it down WAY too much. It takes 4 minutes for just one point, and to get through a lesson you usually need about 25 (which is maximum capacity). It’s very frustrating that it takes a lot of time to reload and it makes it so the game is more about energy points than playing and having fun. While you can purchase some more for real money or diamonds, I just feel like the game should be made slightly more accommodating for the free users that want to immerse themselves into the game and storylines by lowering the energy points needed to earn stars, or by allowing the user to complete tasks that don’t require energy points to earn energy points. The game has an option where you can tap around the castle to earn a couple more points, but it’s just not enough. That being said, the graphics and animation are both really good and I’m impressed by how similar it is to the Harry Potter movies and how they included the characters into the game! So overall, I’m in love with the storylines and characters, but the struggle to get energy points is a major drawback for me.
Good game, needs some improvements
by jewely julie on 2018/08/21 01:18
When I first saw that a Harry Potter game had arrived at the App Store, I immediately downloaded it without giving much of a second thought to it. I’ve always loved Harry Potter, and I couldn’t wait to experience the magic of Hogwarts. It’s certainly a fun game, but a bit lacking in magic. Overall, I have no technical concerns. Customer service was very helpful and got back to me quickly when I had issues, and the game works fine. I don’t have a problem with the energy itself. I understand the reasons for it, I just wish there was more you could do in between. The few mini games available at the moment aren’t fantastic. Dueling lacks any skill, gobstones is a little rude (you’re supposed to use your friends’ weaknesses), and classes are too often and too boring. I’m stuck going from one three hour thing to another where I just click and wait. And many characters are a little mean. I don’t understand why everyone got so mad at my character for losing points when I was still getting more points than anyone else in my house! Right now, I have twenty more points than the student with the second most points earned out of all of Hogwarts, yet my house is still third. Of course, I’m still on Year One, so maybe things will work out in the end? Overall, it’s fun enough and it’s the only Harry Potter app out there, so I recommend it.
Good but room for improvement
by OsmundsonM on 2018/10/03 02:04
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. Updated: I have noticed now that you get the unneeded energy back if you give five and only needed two to get another star. the other three will return to your energy queue. Very nice change, much appreciated. :)
Dueling Club EDITED
by Havefaith23 on 2018/07/14 01:03
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
A slow game of social role playing
by Auntie in 7th Heaven on 2018/09/07 17:45
If you are expecting a fast game of non-stop battles against the death eaters, this is quite the opposite. It focuses on pretending to make friends with npcs by answering trivia questions, going to classes, and very slowly traversing an entertaining mystery story. The slowness comes largely from gaining the necessary energy to proceed at the rate of one point every four minutes. Even if you buy energy to speed forward, many adventures specify that you cannot go to the next part for some period, often eight hours. All this means is that you should plan to play for a couple of minutes and then do other things until you can play for a few more minutes. The strength of the game is that it well delivers the atmosphere of the books and movies: riding a broomstick, learning magic, becoming an animagus, a healer, and a curse breaker. There is infrequent dueling (slightly more if you pay extra). Although the classes that you have to take over and over are usually as boring and repetitive as they seem to little children, the story is cute enough so I find myself laughing out loud at the jokes. Player choices have a significant effect on it, so that you may find yourself deeply involved, which could be frustrating while you are waiting for hours to see if you are strangled by a plant, caught sneaking into Filch”s office, or imprisoned forever in a cursed vault.
Great Game-but I need one more thing
by my_name_is: on 2018/11/20 01:37
This game is so much fun, besides that one annoying thing we always complain about: the energy. Maybe 1 energy every 1 min and 30 secs? Besides that, there is another thing that really annoys me. All this talk about quidditch, and yet I never get to play. The first year(I’m year four now) I was really looking forward to kicking Merula’s buttocks in a quidditch match when I realised they don’t actually play. The characters talk quite a bit about the annual game, and I don’t see any of it. Other than these two problems, I’m really enjoying the new update! The animals that’ve been added are soooo cool like the spider and kneazel. The magizoology concept is awesome too. Tbh though I don’t really understand why there are different colored notebooks(and it’s overwhelming)and it’s kinda difficult to get them. Maybe we could be able to get 1 notebook every class? I love how easy it is to get treat bags though! The grasslands, forests, lake, and volcanic area are so beautiful; those graphics were done amazingly well. Although, I still think the basic/original things like the main character walking, making different facial expressions, moving in any way, etc still need to be polished. All in all, the game is so much fun. However, I hope this seemed less of a “review” and more of like a suggestion’s box. Love most of what’s going on so far, though!!🐍💚💚
Fun, but needs improvement
by jewellangela on 2018/11/16 16:02
I used to play this a lot, but several updates ago I started losing interest after I noticed the energy refills for classes and quests had been tweaked. Before the update, I was able to complete an hour class with my energy at full (with a little help from my pets). And 3 hour classes I could finish with a full bar, by gathering all the extra energy hidden throughout the castle and by watching ads. Now, even with all that help I fall short and it takes me multiple logins to complete something I used to be able to do in one go. I’m not okay with this. The purpose of this game should be to make us WANT to stay logged in and playing. But it’s such an obvious money-grab, I just get frustrated and refuse to go back later. That means I’m playing my other games and giving money to THEM instead, because I actually have fun and feel like I’m accomplishing something. Here, I feel like I’m on a hamster wheel, and no matter how often I login and play, they won’t let me off until the greedy corporation’s pockets get filled. And although the animal update is adorable, I know the same flaws are going to be present when it comes to feeding/bonding, so I really see no reason to even bother. Which is sad, because I used to have fun and felt my time was well spent, and even gave a couple dollars here and there, but now I’m refusing on principle alone.
Happy Ravenclaw 😍 but not completely satisfied
by Hannality on 2018/04/29 22:41
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

This game is so good
by Hendrikam on 2020/11/25 16:07
I love this game it’s just like Harry Potter but you can’t really move your avatar but it’s a great game 🙂🙂🙂🙂
Fun game although...
by GamerKnight107635 on 2020/11/25 15:19
I really like this game, it has potential. I mostly downloaded it because I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I was excited to see what it had to offer. But it took forever to load the game and I would always get kicked out of the game for no reason. I don’t know if it is my WiFi or what, but I hate it! I never even got past the house choosing! Anyway other than that it is a great game.
Combat
by Fuzzy217 on 2020/11/25 15:09
The combat is so incredibly stupid. It is extremely repetitive and bland. It should be more of an attack and response instead of the randomness that it feels like it is.
Decent game but very frustrated
by MMB4917 on 2020/11/25 13:44
I have been playing this game for a while and generally enjoy it. I have been getting exceedingly frustrated as of late. I feel like the past few times I have paid for bundles and what not I have been double charged, but not for the same bundle and different prices. I generally don’t go above a set amount when buying bundles because I really don’t need to be spending money on a phone game. However, I have been able to challenge and get refunds on the bundles that I was charged for but never requested. This last time though I did not. I know for a fact which price I “approved” and was charged that and an additional $15 (which is above my limit) for another bundle I did not benefit from. When I requested a refund for that it was refused, and when I challenged and explain the situation again it was refused. I have no problem paying what I agreed to pay what I have a problem with is being charged more than double and then no one acknowledging this and refusing my refund request. I will jot be buying anything else from this game and quite frankly will probably stop playing because of my frustration. Not sure if anyone had experienced this but I have had it.
Awesome
by 1234$joce on 2020/11/25 13:27
Now, Where to begin! This game lets you have adventures, Learn spells, and so much more. If you are a Harry Potter fan, then get this game fast!
It’s so great, but not so
by Elsi Hughs on 2020/11/25 12:48
I love this game, but it crashes all the time on the second year feast and I wouldn’t get attached to it. I always was able to play this game fine, but then the second year welcoming feast arrived and the game crashed. Get this game, but don’t get attached to it is all I’m saying.
Great game but a little crashy
by nachomagda12 on 2020/11/25 11:25
This is a very very fun game but when i was in the first year feast it just crashed i tried again but it crashed in the same spot and i tried again but it just happened again. Before the gane just crashed at random. I hope you can fix this because this is such a cool game and i wish i could pass to year 2. Ps. if you’re thinking about getting the game, you should.
Pretty good but..
by edennh on 2020/11/25 08:12
I think this game is so much fun but it’s really annoying that u have to wait for energy! It makes me and my friends not want to play anymore! I think it’s a little unfair that learning spells,talking and different tasks TAKE SO MUCH ENERGY! :)
Add Russian language
by Nikita Prusakov on 2020/11/25 04:57
Add Russian language
There can be improvement*
by AzraelL. on 2020/11/25 03:20
In a week in a half I am a year 2. I love the graphics, the professors, the hairstyles are better (please add more!), I love getting to be able to choose your own house and the opportunity to change your name whenever you want. I like the magical creatures, but getting books is very hard. I don’t like to make app purchases, but I am seeing that getting magical books is freaking impossible without having to buy in shop. I just will be extremely patient :), I have gotten really far without buying anything. If you are impatient with waiting for energy in the game some advice: I switch between two games so that I’m always playing something when I’m in a gaming mood. It really helps with waiting out to fill your energy. I really like the adventure part of it and watching my character go through the storyline. It’s a good game, not only for the exact look alike of Hogwarts, but for that fact that you can get diamonds and coins without purchasing and that is AMAZING in a game so I count my blessings with this one. You can actually play and enjoy the game. There is always room for improvements! :)
I love the game
by Dre🌺 on 2020/11/25 01:27
But I wish that we had the choice to change the body type because the characters look kinda weird in the outfits because of their shape. Also if the creators of the game make a restart button that would be great because I be wanting to restart the game from the beginning but it doesn’t work for me or other people as well.
Great game. 1 major problem
by Reapertalon1 on 2020/11/25 01:07
This is a pretty good game if your willing to dedicate some time to it. I literally just downloaded it this morning and I had a ton of fun. Had. Not am having. Had. I made the one mistake of buying a couple gold purchasable cosmetics at a point where I can’t get any gold until I complete a part of the story that requires gold. The only way I know of that I can currently get gold, is by paying an admittedly small amount of money. But this is the kicker. You know how almost EVERY OTHER GAME allows you to pay for a primary currency, with the RARER CURRENCY instead of real cash. Not here
Stole my money
by Rowehl on 2020/11/25 01:03
It was supposed to be a $7.99 purchase and they charged me $17.99!! I want my money back and this fixed or your company will be looking a big lawsuit straight in the face.
Perfect, but a couple ideas
by 😍😍❤️❤️love on 2020/11/25 00:41
Okay, this game is great! This is a safe, fun game everyone can play. You can earn gems, you can earn free energy, and the graphics are great. Another great thing is that there are hardly any videos. A couple of ideas One thing is that it takes 4 minutes just to load one energy. Another weird thing is that if you do not finish the activity in the limit of the time it gives you, you lose points for you team (you loose about 2 points and the teams are ravenclaw, hufflepuff, slytherin, and gryffindor) 😥. Sometimes after those videos you watch for rewards, it keeps loading, and I find that quite annoying. Professor Snape also makes you lose a lot of points. One time I lost 40 points! I know that’s how the story goes, but come on!!! Otherwise, I find this game fun and I recommend getting it! This sounds like a lot of problems that need fixing, but trust me, it is a great game. Have a great day and have fun playing this game!
This game had a lot of potential
by HaxorPlayzYT on 2020/11/25 00:38
This game would have had a lot of potential, if not for a big problem. I was participating in a limited event, and when, the event was over, I was still doing a task. Now, when I try to do anything else, the game won’t let me until I finish my current task, which I can’t access. Please fix this, this game has a lot of potential
Money grab!
by Did I say it's been 4 years? on 2020/11/25 00:16
Would be good, but it is designed so that playing without paying is difficult to do. I wouldn’t even mind if there was a flat fee for accessing a more streamlined game, but it costs 100 dollars for a few gems that might last you a day. Other than that, the game is great
Great but...
by Ekelle is me!!😁😁😁 on 2020/11/24 23:15
Ok so I love this game I’m an all time hp fan but i went and met with my “friend” rowen in the game and the game will not let me do anything else, LIKE WHAT HAPPENED. I have deleted and reinstalled the game game like four or five times!!! And it won’t fix its self I have read another review that this happened to them as well but they were a lot further in the game. I really want to play this game again I will be getting a new phone soon and I’m hoping that when I transfer everything this game will restart. If it makes the game completely restart I will be happy even then. If you can help me out and fix this I will be so happy!! I hope I helped and I hoping you can help me. ☺️☺️☺️☺️😊😊😊😊😊😊😁😁😁😁😁😁 Thank you!!!
Best game ,but
by beachbro727 on 2020/11/24 23:01
This is the best mobile game ever, 1 major flaw, energy. You definitely could fix this by adding a way to earn extra or better refill of energy, or just tapping it, pls do it! Another idea is a way to but infinite energy, I would def buy that please add
love it!!
by Christina Madison on 2020/11/24 22:33
love this game
Pretty fun!
by anne_beus on 2020/11/24 20:57
I enjoy this app. However, it takes a long time for energy to restock and they don’t have very good long hair does for girls

The Best Hogworta Experience Ever!
by NotPixelatedRose on 2020/11/24 18:35
I loved how it was so great and I love the experience I wish I was there!
won’t let me continue
by OliviaS 112 on 2020/11/24 16:03
it’s great but after I didn’t play for a while and I was like seven stages through the year I continued playing it and after I completed my first year I kept exiting me out and I wouldn’t get to continue onto my second year 😭
App
by randomperson157888937 on 2020/11/24 15:40
I give this a 4 out of 5 because I like this game but there is somethings that annoy me likes ads popping all of the time. But I still recommend this app it is really fun and exciting. Also, I think that the timer for the needful should be shorter like 1 or 2 minutes because some of the things take away lots of energy.
Needs work on NOTHING!
by hdjsfk on 2020/11/24 15:19
THIS GAME IS PERFECT NO DOUBT I LOVE THIS GAME!!
It’s fun until it freezes
by BatsandRoses on 2020/11/24 14:07
I loved this game! And it was so much fun until it started freezing. I deleted it and re downloaded it to see if that would work and it didn’t. Now I can’t play and I’m truly upset about it as this was my favorite game.
fun!!
by bandaid on my tod on 2020/11/24 12:48
i love this game!! you can pick what you say and i feel like i’m actually at hogwarts!!🧙🏼‍♀️🦉✨📚
Energy
by shadedhoney on 2020/11/24 09:25
I stopped playing this a while ago because everything took too long since you have a limited amount of energy and not too many ways to restore it. Also I am not a huge fan of things being locked behind different in game currencies that you don’t naturally get enough of from just playing. The constant need to pay real money to progress is annoying. I understand the game is free and they don’t have ads every 5 secs so they have to make money some how but like most free games if you want to advance, you need gems, coins, energy etc and most of these are more easily obtained from spending real money making a game that wouldn’t take too long to beat take forever because I am not spending 50plus dollars in order to get enough gems to skip the quests that are locked behind a timer. Or to buy more energy because every thing you do pretty much takes all your energy. Also I don’t know what has changed but the load screen takes forever now and if you leave the app for whatever reason, now you have to go through the beginning load screen nonsense all over again. That didn’t used to be the case and it’s really annoying now that it takes forever to load.
Trying to start the game, character invisible
by Darthcarrots on 2020/11/24 06:37
So I’ve been trying to start this game for a long time, and I cannot get a character to appear for me to create a student. The options are there, but I can’t see what I’m doing.
Ok listen
by Shadow Orbispo on 2020/11/24 06:02
I’m playing it right and I finished my year 1 but it keeps kicking me out of the game every time I try and get ahead is that normal??? Or nah?
Un juego interesante para fans de Harry Potter
by gogodkxux on 2020/11/24 04:57
La franquicia de J.k Rowling está muy elaborada muy parecido a los libros y películas del “Señor de los anillos” pero hacer un juego relacionado a “Harry Potter”es algo complicado pero este juego es muy personalizado para el jugador ya que es un tipo “Los sims” los gráficos están bastante bien ,la trama es muy interesante y el desarrollo de personajes pero mi única queja es que el juego te pide dinero para objetos del juego pero igual yo lo conformo en conclusión esta genial :3
Love the game but...
by 💜ortiz💜 on 2020/11/24 04:24
To start I absolutely love this game and recommend it but it takes way to long to get energy’s and you can’t really do anything with out them. I hope that the developers will lower the energy time because 4 minutes for 1 energy is ridiculous. For me it takes 2 hours and 30 minutes to refill all my energy’s!!
Fix
by 👄Cece on 2020/11/24 04:18
It’s a great game but the waits on quests is ridiculous. The amount you need for pets and clothes as well needs to be reduced. Another Thing I certainly can’t stand is that the energy only goes up to 25 and I can never finish what I need without waiting hours. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix this and make it better for us. I’m not the only one disappointed here with these issues.
Love it
by LindseyJahn on 2020/11/24 03:32
I’m only on the beginning of chapter 2 and it’s awesome! I’ll update next chapter! Okay, I’m on chapter three and I agree with people who say there’s a energy problem. It takes a while to get more energy. I think it should be at least two minutes for five energy points. Please consider! Bye!
Amazing game
by đėªđ īńšîđę on 2020/11/24 03:07
I love this game and I was obsessed with it for a while but now I tend to forget about it because of the energy bar. Whenever I run out of energy (which happens very quickly), I wait another hour or two to get all the energy back but it makes me restart. It gets super annoying and it makes things hard to finish. But besides that, everything about the game is very good!<3
Keeps crashing
by #imtheawesomest on 2020/11/24 02:46
I got the game a few months ago and I love it but the game keeps crashing I finished the fourth year and was trying to do the feast but it crashed right after everyone was welcomed I tried deleting it and reinstalling it but nothing changed it’s really annoying because it is a very good game and I want to continue.
LESS TIME FOR ENERGY
by person 349 on 2020/11/24 02:37
I think it’s fun and a good game but waiting for energy is the worst! I have been waiting for energy and It takes forever. I used all my diamonds on energy.
Great game
by oooooobhoih on 2020/11/24 02:29
Awesome game I love it
Energy and Gems
by SiriusJamesRemus on 2020/11/24 01:11
Great game however the energy part isn’t much fun, having to wait for energy has caused me to lose some of the special quests. Also we should be able to buy gems with the coins we get! It’ll be much easier for people who don't have the money to spend on a game like this and it’ll make it much more fun.
Good game but needs work
by notcuos on 2020/11/23 23:19
This game is really fun but it has some big problems like.... the energy be taking way to long like don’t nobody got time to be waiting four minutes for one energy and plus I was really excited to be finishing my first year but I can’t even go pass the dinner without it crashing. Also some of the prices are pretty absurd because they are very expensive for the items but it would take you a while to save up for them. But overall it’s an amazing game but I would love it even more if I can get pass it without crashing.
Great, except for...
by 4LeighCLOver on 2020/11/23 21:07
Super fun game, can’t believe it’s free! One big complaint, though, is that every time they offer something (like energy, gems, or coins) if you watch an ad... it literally has never worked. I’ve tried it like 10 times and after watching the ad, the app freezes on a loading screen forever and the only way to get out of the frozen screen is to close out the app and restart... upon which, the “free” gems or energy or coins they promised have not been credited, even though I watched the dang ad! So that’s my one complaint. Other than that this game is great!
It is not as good as I expected
by Crabby21 on 2020/11/23 20:01
So I need to change I to a which because I’m a wizard and I don’t know how to do it
trash
by jordyn sutton on 2020/11/23 19:37
it took f o r e v e r to load the first time i opened it, and i was on wifi as recommended. now, it doesn’t take that long to load, but as soon as i get to the customize character, nothing loads. i can’t see the character or what anything looks like. please fix this!
Frozen and barely in the game

Hate the new Quidditch Event!!
by Jonathan Tenenbaum on 2020/11/23 19:09
It distracted me from actual Quidditch gameplay and main story/quest line. Prizes were “average.” Please take out!!! Wasn’t fun or worth the time. Srry. Remove the Energy!!!!!!
Love it! Except...
by Beatrix Riddle on 2020/11/23 18:06
So I love it! I just wish I could be a bad to the bone Lestrange! I love Bellatrix Lestrange! But that can’t be my last name “Lestrange” or Riddle which makes me extremely sad. Also I wish that classes could be taken with real players that are in your year. And in your common room I would love to chat with fellow students! And ya know have different stories because my brother plays and he also has a brother named Jacob in the game and I just wish it would be different stories.
Love you game!
by iejejdjdnsdoeoak on 2020/11/23 14:56
Hi! How are you today? I’ve been playing this game sense the very morning it came out and I had a few questions about the game like, are we going to do anything about graduating from Hogwarts?, are we going to meet the Harry or Ron anytime?, and when is the 7th year being released? I hope you could answer these questions for me and keep up the good work!
Y can't I continue?
by galaxy savage😎😜😎😜😎 on 2020/11/23 14:34
I have to be honest this game is OFF THE HOOKS! I love the game! It's pretty cool! And u can make ur own choices! But there A BIG PROBLEM to the game! I've did a lot and Its the end of my first year! But then when I try to go in the game it loads then it suddenly takes me back to my home screen. Weird right? I really wanna continue and see what happens in year 2 but it keeps glitching me out of the game!!!!! Even if you wanna go to the beginning off the game if you wanted to start over again it won't let you! It doesn't work even if you delete the game and install it again, it won't work either way.If people can't even start year 2 then what's the point of the game? U guys gotta fix this problem or else people won't wanna play ur game.😕 CREATORS OF HOGWARTS MYSTERY IF U WANT THOUSANDS OF PLAYERS PLAYING UR GAME U GOTTA GET RID OF THESE REDICULOUS GLITCHES PLS LISTEN TO ME PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO GO TO OTHER YEARS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!!_ur friend galaxy savage😎😝😜🤓😒
Fun game but
by CohenEMT on 2020/11/23 11:07
Love the story but I can’t hardly enjoy it with the energy going out constantly.
Sickly game ever
by Jon the fast on 2020/11/23 09:44
It not a good game they make the wrest game ever
Pretty addicting
by Summer meh on 2020/11/23 03:50
Old review: “I kept seeing ads for this on YouTube and i decided to download it. I know very little about Harry Potter but I downloaded this because I love 3D games that let u decide on how you want the story line to go and being able to design ur own character. What I love about this game is that I haven’t have to use actual spending money from my Apple account, so all of the energy I have been using is all free. Though it does require patience to wait for the energy, it’s completely worth it to me cuz I haven’t felt a need to use my real money. I also like that it doesn’t force me to buy stuff with my real money or limits me on what I could have (like past games have.) and it’s not ad ridden. It’s been a while since I’ve found a good game like this and I’ve been thinking about it nonstop ever since I downloaded it. The one downside is the waiting time for the energy when I’m in a very long class but it still allows me to take a break to let it recharge so that I don’t fail a class. Overall I’d rate this app a 5/5 and its rare for me to rate anything a 5/5.” Updated review: same thing as I said before, really well made. I haven’t played it in a while but I actually recently got into the series so I have more knowledge than I used to so I’m playing it again. It has new updates (though I haven’t seen all the updates yet) new pets, clothes, makeup, and even room decorations have been added which wasn’t in the game before. It still has a wait time for the energy to reload once you run out but your still not forced into having to use real money to get through any of the game. I will say that even tho this doesn’t exactly pertain to the original movies and books, it’s still very interesting and I like the story lines. Merula can just be very very annoying I will say. I have other friends who play this and they like it as well. 10/10.

Movable characters
by kiara2.0 on 2020/11/23 00:45
This is an awesome game! But maybe you should make it to where the characters move and you control where they go instead of having them stand while you move the screen. And maybe fix some of the characters because I played the duel with mérela and my character glitched through the other character standing next to me. Thanks. Other than that I loooooovvvveeeee this game!!!!
A bit of a let down...
by bumble bear potato on 2020/11/22 23:34
When I saw the adds I thought, wow this seems really fun, and being a Harry Potter fan I had decent expectations. I get into the game and the first thing that bugged me was the animation. It’s nothing like the adds and I hated it, but I kept going. And it’s so demanding of where you go and what you do, and you can’t walk around because it won’t let you if you have something to do. You can’t walk around period. I would recommend this to kids that can read and are easily entertained. But if your like me and enjoy open-world adventure games, don’t play this.
Love it
by Virgfhvc on 2020/11/22 22:52

Flaws
by unonus on 2020/11/22 22:39
I’m giving this 4 stars because I didn’t get the outfit that won the contest that I was looking forward to and would actually make my character look a bit cool. Also the special events give you way too little time you should have about 6 days to do them not 4. Also when is the second quidditch cup coming! Lastly, the energy takes way too long to refill and I know it’s for marketing but not all of us want or are allowed to pay( I know you pay in gems but then you have to buy gems and on and on) I just want to play a fun game. Lastly, in the full marks I’m doing right now there’s a person with less points than me but he’s in 5th place and I’m in 6th so can you please fix that because it’s not fair.
Please remove the energy system
by treyoungg on 2020/11/22 22:20
I am going to start off by saying this game is a very diverse and fun game. There is only one problem, the energy system. I would love to play this game 24/7 but sadly good things have to end im tired of sitting there and waiting for more energy to come in. I guarantee you take it out this game could be very big, and having this system is making you lose players. Please take out the energy system!!!!!
I don’t like the energy thing
by Meanreannnb on 2020/11/22 22:18
So there is a thing we’re you lose energy and you have to wait a while for it to come back witch I don’t like
One thing
by Gacha Angle on 2020/11/22 22:13
I love the game can you just make it where you can change your house/ reset with out Facebook thank you
Its not a good game😕
by 0p@/ on 2020/11/22 16:35
I really want to enjoy this game but it wont let me finish the first year. I want to continue the story but if you don’t have a high preference phone i do not recommend this game. I am really sad 😢 because I loved the game if it would let me finish i would give it a 5 star 🌟
It’s good but has issues
by the apps horrible on 2020/11/22 16:19
There are a few things about this game that make it’s absolutely marvelous features more of an eh-. One the notebook ratio they have. You can get pets and cosmetics in exchange for brown notebooks; however though e brown notebook would be less rare compared to the others you will most certainly find the others as much, I’m in year 4 and I’ve only accumulated 50 brown notebooks. I know a few people who are quitting the game due to the struggle to accumulate any of these things. The best choice to get something worth 140 notebooks is to finish the game or pay for it. Even if you do pay for it you get around four notebooks for 11 dollars.
Great game!
by arianator😘 on 2020/11/22 15:32
I have only had this game for a day, and I LOVE it. However, the energy is kinda annoying. It takes a long time to recharge.
Totally recommend !
by annasouthwick on 2020/11/22 15:30
I’ve loved Harry Potter for a while now and this game is so much fun and creative! The graphics are nice as well as the gameplay.
2nd year
by weeeeeè on 2020/11/22 15:27
It is an amazing game. But one you go to the feast to end the first year and start the second it crashes. No matter how many times you exit and try again it crashes. Which if it was not for that and how hard it is to get the books it would’ve gotten 5 stars and I hope I can continue to play soon because I was excited to meet new people and learn more quidditch related things.
This game is great just one thing
by great..lamama on 2020/11/22 15:15
I love this game it’s really just great it’s so fun and me and my older sister will play it all the time together but one thing I really think you should add this one being able to sleep and actually like do things in your dorm and 2 being able to go home between years that all please respond so I know that you are gonna add it or not thanks please add this😀😀
Harry Potter
by Ginnypotter2.0 on 2020/11/22 13:58
This game is really good it’s fun. And I really feel like a real witch. But it would be better if they gave us more freedom in the game.
Why are you guys deleting my comment?
by Kimarci on 2020/11/22 10:50
Seriously do not download this game
Not enough play time
by Sheh Thead on 2020/11/22 10:17
I downloaded the game today & I was beginning to enjoy it but I’m losing interest FAST. It has potential to gain your interest to keep playing but most quests require a lot of energy & you’re not given a lot of it. That’s if the quest is ready. You have to spend money for energy to only play a couple minutes PLUS you have to spend money for gems just to play the quest.
It could be so fun
by MsAnaH on 2020/11/22 07:03
The game has a great premise and what I can play has been enjoyable; however, it seems as if you HAVE to pay to make progress (unless you’re willing to go at a snails pace). The energy, which you need for almost everything, runs out quickly and it takes so long to wait for it to replenish. The “cost” of items, pets, or other resources is so high and the game doesn’t provide many ways to earn the currency... basically telling you to pay up if you want to be able to get anything. I would rather have to pay up front for the app.
Pretty good...but
by ✨🧚‍♀️b i s e x u a l✨🧚‍♀️ on 2020/11/22 05:39
To start this off with, I'd like to say that although I have an iPhone 5, I don't have any of these problems for other apps. First off all, I can't get past the end of year feast on year one, because the game keeps crashing. I would like to play it on my other devices that are newer, incase that is the problem, but I don't have a facebook, which is the only way I'm allowed to sign in through. I want to be able to use my email or at least my google account which is normally included on other apps. Second of all, the waiting time, punishments and prices are all to high, I've had to lose 5 house points because I didn't want to spend 30 diamonds to refill my energy that takes 4 minutes to refill each energy point, and if I leave the app for a while, the energy can only fill up to 25. Also, I was searching for pet food to try to get my xp up, but after I got the required 1 star, I had to wait an hour until I could continue the game or I had to spend all of my energy on it which wasn't even enough. Thirdly, I had to wait for 1-3 hours to continue the story and there wasn't anything to do in the meantime, like talking to npc's, and getting more little side quests, which also take a lot of time/work. Side quests are supposed to be easy little tasks to do in-between larger quests. For example, you could help a teacher and get some xp, house points, friendship points or energy. Also the main npc's like rowan and ben are really cliche, I don't feel connected to them at all, and ended up feeling closer to merula, who I didn't have any options to get closer to at all. All in all, the idea of the game is great, and as a harry potter fan, I'd probably love if it weren't for these small things that add up after time. Hogwarts was designed amazingly, and I really appreciate the thought. But it feels like a knock off of what harry went through, instead of your own journey through Hogwarts. Edit: I have now signed in with Facebook, and have tried it on a different device, it still doesn’t work

OMGGG
by Parttime pumper on 2020/11/22 04:01
This is BYE FAR my favorite game EVER. I don’t get tired of the levels the graphics are PHENOMENAL and I can’t get ENOUGH of the storyline! The pets are the cutest ever and I love all the clothing options! My only suggestion would be a way to earn more gems. I’ve bought quite a few different packs and especially event themed ones, but you should make it easier to acquire them. Energy as well. The money that I use for gems basically goes straight to energy and I have no gems left for the fun things I planned on purchasing. I, personally, would be more Inclined to purchase more gems and packs if I could enjoy the perks of having them. Please make it easier to have gems and energy that’s all!!!! <3 thank you!!!!!!!! 🥰😍🤣
I love it
by Me07242015 on 2020/11/22 02:12

Takes to long to get energy
by Kittens mittens 😻😺😻😺 on 2020/11/21 23:11
I am a year 2 student on the game, and I do not have very much energy. It runs out so quickly and it takes 4 MINUTES to get ONE POINT OF ENERGY. Seriously, I don’t want to wait about 20 minutes just to get 5 points! Fix it ASAP
Great game at all but I guess I’m just being picky
by won't load prodigy on 2020/11/21 23:11
I love this game I’d give it a five star rating if there was a few differences including… Music or sound of some sort. If the characters actually talked instead of just having written down on the bottom of the screen. And probably more stuff I just got the game today but I’ve been playing for a while now and it’s kind of boring that I can’t do more. I love the game and all though. My rating is 30 but I’m putting it off at five so that more people can see it.
Great!
by JadeLifeTree on 2020/11/21 22:27
I love this app, the graphics are amazing and the plot’s interesting. I would recommend that you add something to do so you can get more energy for your character, maybe a mini game or something? Otherwise it’s amazing!
AWESOME GAME but needs some changes

This game is AWESOME for Harry Potter lovers. If you aren’t in love with Harry Potter then you might not know some of the spells or the people. Speaking of people, I love all the different people you can meet, but you don’t meet Harry, Ron, Luna, or Hermione. I want to meet Harry most but he never shows up on friendships. Another thing that needs to be changed is that you should be able to get gems and energy with the coins that you have, you should be able to get them without real money. Some people don’t have Apple money. Thank you, Poop
Is this still a demo?

Good but crashes
by ??!??!??!! on 2020/11/21 18:56
This game is really good but one BIG problem. Once I finish year one it crashes. I reset it and it still crashes. I cannot pass year one so pls fix this issue. Thx and I play on iPod. (Tip: If you fix the issue then I will do five stars. Thx.)
Problems I’ve had
by jan l. luoma on 2020/11/21 15:31
I’m having to start over. It keeps freezing up. Doesn’t always give me my energy balls, or gems. Kicks me out at an important time. I love the game tho. That’s why I’m trying to reload it. Gotta find out how now.

I love harry potter
Eh
by Spookychicken46 on 2020/11/21 14:35
Good but there are a few things that need to be fixed. I feel 4 minutes for 1 energy is a ridiculous wait time. I feel there should be a sliding scale for how many gems something cost. If you’re almost done with an event part but you run out of time and only need one star I feel like it shouldn’t be 55gems to get more time when all you’re going to do is use a few energy. Instead, it should be based on how much time you have left. I’m also pretty tired of watching an ad and not getting the energy, coins, gems etc that I’m supposed to get with watching the ads. Love the game for what it is, I just think some things could be improved upon.
Great Gameplay Except for 1 Thing
by Brytonik Leegend on 2020/11/21 14:28
The storyline and multitude of quests makes this game so great. The use of an energy bar is what brings the score down. (Waiting 4min for just 1 bar, the limited small energy capacity, and the huge energy use just to do tasks)
Great

Love this game so much.
Harry Potter and the crashing mystery
by belugawhale421 on 2020/11/21 13:29
Have fun playing this game while it crashes on you non stop and you can’t get anything done. Honestly the creators should really spend more time fixing crashes then making whatever because the lower west floor has the worst crashes.
Sorry

Ok So Its A Good Game Fun Entertaining Its A Good Rpg But Why Cant You Reset Your Whole Game? Yes Some May Like Having Their Whole Game Saved. But Shouldnt You Have An Option To Restart?
I love the game but...
by imjusttellingthetruthuknow on 2020/11/21 04:30
I’ve lost two ‘quest’ now because the game won’t load & my time runs out. Even though my wifi is connected, it still will not load. I’m very aggravated because I love the game, but it’s ridiculous that I can’t even play it when I want.
Please go back to the original dueling system!!!
by Gaubstopper on 2020/11/21 03:38
The way the dueling system was originally was better. If you were lower leveled, you had a chance at beating some of the higher leveled players. Loser didn’t get a turn so if you guessed right, you could win. It was a little frustrating because it was a total guess, but fair. Now that’s been changed and has taken all the fun out of dueling - you get a turn no matter what, so if you’re a higher level, all you have to do now is spam your highest damaging spell and you’ll win almost every time guaranteed, even with the lower leveled players spamming healing spells. It’s no fun anymore because there’s no strategy or variety. Additionally, this makes it IMPOSSIBLE to beat Chiara on the timed quest, since all of your attributes will be one level lower than hers (I've played this challenge before on my old phone a couple of times and it doesn’t matter what level your attributes are at - her will ALWAYS be one higher), no matter how skilled you are. Especially if you’re playing this at year 2 - you know like 3 spells and don’t stand a chance. Please revert back to the old system, this was a horrible change.
Challenging and Fun!

Hogwarts mystery

I really love this game because it is fun and you get to do cool stuff
Disappointed
by Shadow~Wolf82 on 2020/11/21 01:43
I never write reviews for apps but I was really looking forward to playing this game but I can’t even make my avatar! I can’t see any of the options to choose from.
Not loading
by JJ_limelight on 2020/11/21 01:24
I’ve been having problems getting it to load while I’m on WiFi and cellular data but I’m not gonna give it one star until I know what this game is actually like
Almost* Perfect 🧙🏻‍♀️
by Airfield munch on 2018/11/14 07:24
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!
It’s Great but...
by Truthful Game reveiwer on 2020/06/04 15:33
This game for many Harry Potter fans wanting more of the magic world of witch craft and wizardry is amazing and fun, it’s also good for people looking for a little thrill. This game doesn’t have ads popping up every few seconds and I had this game a while ago and was easily sucked in being a Harry Potter fan myself. I later forgot the game and ended up deleting it when just recently I got it back and it has honestly been pretty fun but I can see why I had come to forget it in the first place, the energy. Firstly, you don’t even start off with that much but on top of that, all of the things you need to do require a lot of energy and when your out you either have to wait a few minutes for them to give you like one (which won’t do you any good) or you have to watch a video which really only gets you three which isn’t much better. I usually wait till the next day to get full energy but there’s also a time limit that you have to follow in many quests and classes which is usually up by the next day so I honestly can’t find a good solution to this problem, maybe you can try to fix some things. The final thing is I don’t think you can restart the game, even when deleting it for a while. I honestly want to start a new house with a new character since I can’t remember what was going on last time but I really don’t think that’s an option, maybe you can also do something about that to? Besides that this game is pretty fun and one that I won’t forget for a while.
I love this game but.....
by Kaye Moon on 2020/10/24 01:25
I’ve been obsessed for the longest time, and I was super excited when I finished the first year. However I couldn’t even finish the welcoming feast in year two before the game crashed. So I said “Alright, I’ll just restart the game.” So I did. It started the feast over so I went through it again but in the same spot it crashed again. I tried several more times and again and again it crashed and would start me back over. This made me so so upset because this happened on my previous phone too, which was an iPhone 5 and I thought that this new iPhone 6 was going to be better. And it was! Until the second year feast. I just really wish that I could play the game all the way through without getting pushed back when it crashes. I can’t continue the game anymore and it saddens me because I really looked forward to playing the rest of it. I can’t even finish events anymore because the game will crash while I’m playing at random. I hope maybe the developers and people who work on the game can fix this, because I love this game. It’s so fun and whimsical and makes me laugh. It takes me back to being a kid and loving HP and watching it during Christmas time and Halloween. I adore the characters, the story is so compelling, and the visuals are really cool and often funny. I really just want to know what’s going on, and why it keeps crashing, and I hope it gets fixed. Thank you for a great game while it lasted, I hope that one day I may play again.
Great Game But.....
by Pay up or Fail on 2019/10/14 21:15
I’ve always loved Harry Potter! I read the books, seen the movies, and was fascinated with all the magic and the idea of going to a school for witches and wizards. I think this game does a great job of including people into that world with the accuracy of the characters and the story elements. However, there are things you should definitely try to improve and fix. I think the first one is the energy and the constant tapping on objects to fulfill tasks. In a way it reminds me of the sims mobile except it’s Harry Potter themed lol. But the energy tank is not enough and it is bothersome. It doesn’t make me want to play the game more it’s just this thing that gets in the way of the fun I’m having and almost ruins it. This is a story based game, and the energy issue gets in the way of enjoying the story. With the sims it’s ok because there is no story really. Your building something (the sims life) so it’s different. I could barely even finish one class without running out of energy. At least the sims gets you through a few events lol. And then the vigorous tapping isn’t as bad as the energy but finding a way to make things like the class activities to be more interactive would be cool. The last thing I’ll say is that I know this game is fairly new and hasn’t been out long. So there’s plenty of time to improve. The sims did it, for you it won’t be any difference. When these issues and little annoyances are fixed you’ll have a lot more people playing.
Good game, but...
by Tgwolfy918 on 2020/05/09 19:09
I really like this game. It’s fun, interesting, it’s got great graphics, and it has a good storyline. However, I think there’s a few things this game could add to make it a truly 5-star game. The first way it could be improved is by making the game more interactive. Instead of just tapping on things to use energy, it would be great if we could actually control our character as they do things. This could still cost energy, and it would make the game more fun for the players. Additionally, it would be great if we could customize our Animagus form. In both the books and the movies, Animagi still have defining personal characteristics in their animal form. This could be added to the game through a one-time customization when you get your Animagus form, where you could then change your fur/feather color, eye color, and other characteristics to look more like yourself. One last thing I think could make the game better is diversity in the romance options. It would be nice if instead of only having six people to pick from, you could choose to have a crush on any of your friends. If this isn’t possible, it would at least be nice to have Bill as a romance option since I believe you can have a crush on him early in the game, but he isn’t available for the dating side quest or the Celestial Ball. Whether or not these things get added, Hogwarts Mystery is a great game, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Harry Potter.
Good Game- A couple of problems
by Hogwarts💙💙💙💙💙 on 2019/04/22 21:39
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.🙄
Yikes
by Vadikka on 2020/06/30 04:51
This game is so fun. Relaxing and keeps you coming back for more. Even if you don’t have money to spend you can still progress. However, sometimes when I watch the daily reward ads, they do not register an award, even after watching the entire 30 second ad through. Also noticed that “energy” doesn’t fill up sometimes if you leave the game running in the background of your device. Almost like the timer stops. I left the game for 40 minutes, came back and energy was still zero. Also if your “energy” isn’t on refill timer, the extra energy you can collect around Hogwarts doesn’t count towards refilling your bar. So that’s not very nice, oh and don’t bother playing Gryffindor House because you will always be in last place in “events”. Another strange occurrence is while doing tournament type events with 25 other people, a random new player will show up in the list and suddenly be in first place, pushing all the original people down or people will disappear all together only to show up hours later. Or you will be neck and neck with someone for first place and suddenly they are 1000 points a head of you which is impossible in the full marks tournament. Last thing, Hagrids storyline is designed against you. You will never have enough notebooks to “adopt” creatures. The Cruppy story was angering considering you spend over 3 hours wasting energy just to find out there isn’t a puppy left for you. That angered me. Don’t buy into their greed unless you have money to burn.
I’m absolutely obsessed!!!🌺
by DANCE4EVER!!!🌸 on 2020/04/24 23:56
This is an AMAZING game!!! I love it so much and literally play it everyday. Although it is very interactive and fun and makes you feel like your an actual student at Hogwarts, there are some things I wish you could do. First off it is a bit frustrating that for some story parts of the game you have to wait about 8 hours to do. Second is that it would be nice if you could pick when you get to do the special events, like host the student from Beauxons, or befriend a werewolf. I am almost done with my second year and realized that I might not get to do “ Christmas With The Weaslys “ The last thing is that I am very confused about when you get to learn lessons that aren’t required to move on with the story. I was thinking the other day maybe that’s what you learn in your 7th year. Because in the little book icon were you see the lessons you’ve learned, there is nothing for year 7. This just some feedback that I hope will make the game even more fun than it already is. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope this helps. I’d also like to add that I Love that you added the quittich option... I’m sorry if I spelled that wrong. I saw that there something new coming and I cannot wait to see what it is!!! I recommend this game to everyone, even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, and I think this game will make you one! 🤗
Great Game! However has a couple problems
by Agelina N. on 2019/10/27 20:39
Hogwarts Mystery is such a fun, exiting game! I love the friends you make, challenges you must over come, and how well the developers made Hogwarts. In fact, Hogwarts looks a lot like it in the movies. Something I loved was how they made Peeves. It’s so cool! They did a really good job using the clues in the books to make peeves. One thing I wish could change is the energy bonuses. I dislike that you have to wait 4 whole minutes just to get 1 energy bonus. If you don’t want to wait, spend your gems. The thing is if you don’t have enough, you have to buy it. If you are like my friend, who’s parents won’t buy you anything. I totally understand! Otherwise, you should play this game. I also enjoyed that I was able to pick what house I was in. I’m a Hufflepuff so I was able to just pick Hufflepuff. My other friends who are in the other houses showed me each of the common rooms. They are spectacular!! In my opinion, my favorite common room is the Hufflepuff common room. It’s so cool! You’ll love it! You don’t have to pay very much for anything, Unless you want to support the game, witch in my opinion you should. I wish that you could pick your own friend in the beginning because Rowan is very nerdy and kinda ravenclaw ish. But anyways you should play this game!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for reading my whole review and yeah, maybe I’ll see your review
No way to go but up.
by Strikewillow on 2018/05/23 01:33
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.
Uhhh... What?
by Problemed Person. on 2018/05/28 18:24
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.
PLEASE READ: Love this game but needs to change....
by SkittlesWolf12 on 2018/07/05 17:55
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.
Improved so much ❤️
by unicornvolleyball on 2020/10/09 14:33
I have complained a lot about the energy but it has improved so much since I have and a lot of others have complained about it. So it doesn’t look like they are gonna take away energy 🙄 but they have improved it so much, it will now let you watch a add to get more energy which I love I have watched a lot of adds but that’s not a problem for me because I don’t want to pay money to buy energy and they are making money by me watching adds to get some (how I see it, it is a win-win) but there is a little problem it only lets you watch so many adds and then it doesn’t let you watch them anymore :( but that isn’t the main problem it takes 4 minutes for the energy to charge up to ONLY 1 which I think is ridiculous and so does many other people I think it should be 30 seconds for each energy to fill up and I think that would be way more efficient because not everybody has the time to wait four minutes for just one to fill up when you have a lesson that only has an hour to it and you can’t keep on checking back so a lot of times I will lose the lesson and have to start over and then I lose all my energy again doing that and then it just starts over so I never really get a lesson done so it would help if you reduce the time a little bit but other than that it’s is such a good game and the developers deserve some credit for how well this game is made ❤️😍
So fun! But... UPDATE
by catpapi on 2018/06/27 18:39
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. Update: 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!
so much fun, but has it’s drawbacks
by one23dee on 2018/06/29 20:33
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!
Love this game but it has some big issues
by nerdsunite on 2020/01/02 05:15
I would love to give this game 5 stars but I can’t. The story is great I love the game. the idea of the app is good but the energy thing is ridiculous. I cannot go to an event without using all my energy so I have to wait and there are so many events to do so most of the time I am not continuing the story just trying to get enough stars just so I can START the lesson so I can continue the story. It takes way too much time and I just want to continue the story. The amount of gems it takes to get a good amount of energy is ridiculous and getting gems is hard so then you have to buy gems for a ridiculous amount of money. You also have to use gems so you can start an event. Or you could wait 8 hours. That is ridiculous. The creators are obviously trying to make money but I am not spending a single penny on this game. This game isn’t even finished, I saw another review that said you can’t get past year six. The game is filled with bugs and I keep getting kicked out. One time it took a month before I could play. Creators: Finish the game please! Still gonna keeps this app on my phone and play but if something doesn’t change soon I won’t spend anymore time on this game. Other people have the same complaints but I still had to write this review. Creators need to see the complaints so they can fix the game. P.S I would love if you guys could let us switch houses. I accidentally picked Ravenclaw when I should be in Gryffindor. Just a tip!
Great game! 💯 would recommend.
by Smiles:)!!!!! on 2018/05/09 02:38
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!!
Misleading
by CT Mom 12 on 2018/05/29 15:15
This game has an interesting plot and clever features. I disagree with some of those who find the energy wait times and such disappointing; while they ARE sometimes painful, I think they’re fair in providing an incentive for spending without being too disruptive in their duration; you can still interact with the game and make progress in a meaningful way every day for free, and the hidden energy replenishes in a reasonable amount of time and is a fun feature. The price points for the gems are still a bit high; a lower price point would promote more buying. My biggest source of frustration in this development period is the fact that the full game has not been released; it currently ends near the end of year 3. Had I known this, I would likely have been more patient rather than spending gems to progress more quickly. Hopefully there will be some compensation for this in future releases. I also take issue with the button features when running out of energy; on several occasions I have accidentally hit the button to spend gems without intending to; I would like to see a confirmation window with a button in a different screen location before gems are spent. I think the game has potential, and look forward to future releases, but will not be purchasing further gems given what I now know. Without the criticisms above, I’d give the app 4-5 stars.
Alright

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.
Addicting and Fun
by Jermor8 on 2018/08/09 12:52
I think this game is perfect! It tells you a story and you get to meet friends and increase your relationship level with them as well as your attribute points. You get to dress your character and buy pets. Many people complain about the energy, but I feel as though if there wasn’t energy, you would be done with the game too quick. I love that you can make choices to increase your attribute levels, which allows you to make special choices. I also love that by clicking on certain spots you get a point of energy. I also love that by buying a pet with in game money, you get a point of energy when they are sleeping and click on them. I love that these pets are helpful. The fact that you can increase your relationship with characters to get rewards and be able to bring them with you on quests is really cool, and to do that, you must answer Harry Potter trivia makes it even better. I like that you can duel with other characters, and the way to win is to have batter attribute levels, and know more stronger spells. I also like the special events that go on that allow you to get prizes, such as outfits, gems, and coins for getting a certain amount of stars in classes before the time runs out. The only thing I don’t like about this game is the glitches. It isn’t that bad though, it never got me frustrated, and I’m in my fourth year.
I love this but there are a few problems...
by Horselover4729 on 2018/07/23 15:35
This game is really good and I love it... but the are two problems I would like to mention. The first problem I have is the energy. I know there are plenty of reviews out there already mentioning the energy as a problem, but I want to mention it too. Four minutes is quite a long time to wait for just one energy... I think maybe one or two minutes would be better, or maybe one minute and thirty seconds. I am actually writing this review right now while I’m waiting for my energy to fill because I’m in the middle of learning a spell and I ran out of energy way to quickly and it takes too long to fill up again. You could also include maybe mini games that could earn you things like energy and coins or xp. The second problem I would like to mention is the spelling mistakes. Yes, I understand everybody spells things wrong every once in a while, I probably have some mistakes in this review, but the words that are spelled wrong are pretty much spelled wrong throughout the entire game. Some examples of the misspelled words are practice(in the game it is spelled as practise) and artifact(it is spelled as artefact in the game). I’m not a game maker or anything and I don’t know how hard it would be to go back and change the spelling, so I’m not going to ask for the spelling to be fixed unless it is too hard of a thing to fix. I really hope the energy gets changed though.
Problems
by Me060381 on 2019/06/07 15:28
I like the game, don't get me wrong but there are a lot of problems, mainly because of the 'not enough' bravery or knowledge or whatever options, it's frustrating it truly is especially if you are just new and charge in it, I find a constant error with everything when trying to pick an option and not having enough for that option, not to mention the reset! Honestly, Pokemon games way of resetting there game is a 1000 times easier then this, I have to download apps and things I don't want, not to mention my poor little phone can handle it all! Not to mention because of the high quality there's a lot of lag, which can be a problem when doing the 'focus' part of a trial in a class, this is a large reason why I rate this a 3 star, because everything seems good, at least I hope for now it's all good from then on Well.... except the prices on everything and anything, and the energy!!!!! That's way to long for one energy!!! It's honestly annoying!!!!! Especially if someone I used up all there energy and went alone on that one event with the vines(keep forgetting what those thorny vines are called) not to mention it's a hassle, but then there's the gems, oh god the gems, there WAY to hard to get when doing this stuff! They should be easier since so much of it is used to get items!!!! VERY expensive items if I might add!!!!! It's really and truly annoying, please try and fix these things and give warnings before hand on such things
Review Must Read
by FriendlyReviewer1 on 2018/07/09 12:22
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.
Great and Does Not Have To Cost Anything
by natashaspy55 on 2018/07/01 23:29
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.
Awesome!
by BobDaPotterhead on 2018/07/07 17:08
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! 👍😂
Amazing but frustrating
by KEde01 on 2019/07/18 20:01
I absolutely love this game. The detail behind the story and graphics and the accuracy is perfect. It’s so amazing seeing something I loved so much in my childhood and to this day come to life. That being said, I do wish there were more mini games that didn’t require energy. The amount of energy we receive is much too low for the amount needed to complete a task. By the time I’ve waited for my energy to refill my task has timed out and I have to start all over. I love the three mini games that allow you to gain a higher relationship with friends (the meal, gobstones, and butterbeer). I wish there were more opportunities like that, as it is fun if you know Harry Potter trivia, does not require energy, and high friendships is important later on in the game. If there is nowhere to put another game like this, then the time needed until you can have another meal with friends etc should be shorter. Right now it takes 9+ hours after playing once to play again. I also wish the tasks were more interactive as opposed to clicking on the screen until your energy runs out. I feel like it would be so much more fun if we could actually participate in the classes. I love the story and watching it progress, but I hate the energy system. Hopefully in future versions more mini games will be added or it will take less time for energy to replenish. Or ideally the energy will not be needed at all!
BEST GAME EVER!
by hanhandoggurls on 2019/02/25 17:49
This game is so amazing. It truly captures the experience of reading Harry Potter. I love how you can meet two of the Weasley kids and Tonks too! All the teacher look the same and have the same personality: Dumbledore is understanding and calm, Flitwick is kind, and Snape is horrible and hates everyone😆. No complaints at all but (remember: THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT) I just get frustrated waiting to get energy for the timed challenges and the time for the challenge runs out and I have to start over again. But I love how you can get extra energy around the castle by tapping painting and even Peeves. As you can tell I’m a huge Harry Potter geek and know everyone’s names by heart. The animals are cool too but I think just a rat is too expensive! It’s not like I want a rat but I want an owl or a cat and they are 10 time as expensive. But no complaints. What the heck would you use the pets for? I’m pretty sure they can give you extra energy. But that would be why they are so expensive. I love how you can customize you character to make it white or black, a redhead, blonde, or brunette. And I think the look of the clothes is spot on. I love the robes. My only wish is that I could have a cooler “bff”. No complaints but Rowan is kind of weird. Over all I love this game so so so so so so much. I would say way more but it would take you an hour to read it. Bye Bye!!
Cool initially but needs more ways to interact
by Alexander Ttt on 2018/05/31 18:48
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.
A fan that just wants to help
by Halfblooddork on 2018/05/11 12:47
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.
ALMOST Lived Up to the HYPE
by MrsKramit on 2018/05/02 03:18
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.
Please fix the energy
by 123432345654 on 2019/01/21 23:34
I have noticed a few problems. First there is wrong spelling all the time. Second there should be some other tasks that are quicker loading to get stuff done quicker. Third I can never get gems. I am not allowed to pay real money and I can not get more gems from anywhere. Fourth is the loading. The game takes about 5 seconds to load, and that does not seem like much, but for all the stuff it takes a lot of time away. Fifth is the fact that stuff like gobstones or pets or clothes is way overpriced. Also you should make it so when characters talk and you have the sound up, the just grunt and make noises. But the energy is the big problem. I would suggest that you either make so we can pay coins for energy, or make small tasks we do to win energy, or make the energy timer do that in 4 minutes you get 4. Not one per minute, but every four minutes you get four. If you look in all the other comments you have, nearly everybody who plays this game is complaining about the energy. You need to fix this! I put on a three hour challenge, use all my energy without even getting one star yet, wait an hour and a half, and then go back, get up to 2 1/2 stars, empty out all my energy, wait an hour and a half, and find out that it timed out and it says that I need to do the exact same thing over again without waiting for energy. That is practically just saying that you want us to fail or handover our money.
Please make energy time shorter!!
by CarolinaCountry333 on 2020/07/15 15:00
I have been playing this game for a few months, and am currently in year 2. I love this game so much! I love the storyline and side quests. However, I do have one small suggestion that will make your game infinitely better... could you please shorten the energy waiting time? Four minutes is a long time to wait for one energy, and that’s about 2 hours to wait for a full bar (my bar is currently only at a max of 28 energy’s). I, along with many other people, would love the game more of you could just shorten the waiting time by one or two minutes. It really cuts it close when a quest or class I’m in is about to end and I still waiting for more energy! I know a ton of people also have this same problem, and would be very happy if you shortened the time to two minutes. I have a couple friends who stopped playing this game, solely because the energy took too long to regenerate. Tons of people have left the game because of this one, easily fixable problem. Also, I’m not allowed to spend money on this app, since I’m still under the age of 18 and my parents won’t let me. I don’t have very many gems to buy energy with. This leaves me no other option to get energy than waiting. Developers, I am begging you, please shorten the energy wait time to two minutes per energy! It’s so frustrating to have to wait for four minutes for one energy.
Not what we hoped for
by Merjenta on 2019/02/06 06:31
I, like many others, hoped that this game would truly allow you to explore Hogwarts. I understand that’s quite a bit for an app, but surely it isn’t impossible. Let’s go over all the bad stuff first.. You basically have no choice but to follow the story line. You cannot interact with other characters unless prompted to do so. You need to unlock your lessons as the game progresses just as you can unlock certain parts of the castle as you move years while we know that in the books/movies, most of these classes and places are available to us. There are many inaccuracies with the dialogue and where characters are in certain chapters and the graphics could really be a smidge better. Also, where are the voices?? This game would’ve been better if it was a little more like the Sims or even allowed other players to show up in your game. I dislike that I cannot make my own choices and that certain tasks take so long to become available. I would’ve paid for the game outright to avoid some of these things. I know you’re trying to make gameplay a little longer, but with the money that you could’ve made just asking us to purchase the game instead of making it free, would’ve made so much of a difference and allowed the developers more of an option to take on these tasks. Otherwise, this game isn’t awful. The story is interesting and I enjoy the side tasks and classes. But for the HP fandom, it just needs MORE.
Fun to experience but painful to play
by Triskept on 2018/05/12 20:28
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.
Amazing game but..
by §Savage|Senpai§ ( the YTer) on 2020/11/16 15:52
I’ve always liked to watch Harry Potter movies, and read the books, so when I found out that there was a game for it, I was ecstatic! I looked for this game and found it. I was really happy that it was available on IOS. I was looking at the game, and found myself scrolling down to the reviews. I read a lot of them complaining about the energy. I was really confused, and thought it was nothing. That was until I played the game myself. You should not have to wait 4 minutes just to get 1 energy point or whatever. I am very frustrated. I decided to do some research to explain my point. In this game, you have a time limit to do things. For example, in Charms Class, you have a 3 hour time limit to finish it. So let’s say that I waited until my energy was filled (overnight), and then I entered charms class. I used up all of my 26 energy points, because that is what you see at the energy bar, and what the past 5 days of testing have told me. I have to wait 4 minutes to get 1 more energy point. To get a total of 26 energy points, it would take me approximately 1 hour and 44 minutes. I’m sure nobody wants to sit there and wait for that long. Maybe take away the time limit, energy limit, and shorten the energy making process to 15 seconds. Thank you. Respectfully, The Players of this game
A Need for Energy
by ILoveHamilton on 2018/12/28 15:21
I downloaded this app fairly recently, probably somewhere in November of 2018. The graphics are really good, the storyline is promising- it's actually a really good game. It gave me the feeling that I was actually at Hogwarts! I could make friends, investigate suspicious things, and have fun with my house mates. And, the overall story arc is well thought out and intriguing. There is only one thing that made me uninstall it. Yes, it was that big of a problem for me. Every activity you do, you need energy to complete. And you only have 25 energies after a long recharge. Which means, it could take hours to complete a task and move on. And, what is even more pressuring, is that these tasks have time limits. Which means if you don't have enough energy to complete them at a single time, you have to wait and risk losing your progress if the time is up while you are waiting for the energy recharge. I'm not sure if it's able to be done, but once I got to a certain point, I was at a standstill. Every time I tried to get to a new level, I would miss the time limit. Even through I tried to love this game as much as I could, and even though this game is a very lovable game, I had to give up due to me not being able to get out of first year. I hope someday, someone is able to get past the first year level and have true fun with the game. It has serious potential, I'm just sad I couldn't get to it. Maybe I will try again in the future.
2.8 stars. Sometimes fun, but the “tap the box and wait” approach is boring, and really uncreative
by Shooopylally on 2018/09/14 22:02
I am on Year 2 Chapter 7 and so far, it has been a great time. It’s wonderful to finally be a part of Hogwarts! My only problem is the waits. Many people deleted the app within the first few chapters, and I assure you, the vast majority of them did it because of having to wait hours to get out of devil snare. And if they didn’t delete it then, they probably did later because there’s tons more of waits like that and longer. 3 hour waits, 8 hour waits. You can hardly play for ten minutes before encountering something where you have to wait at least an hour. Plus with the style the game is in right now, there really isn’t much fun in hogwarts classes. HP fans have waited for YEARS to attend hogwarts classes, and now the best shot we have at that is this game, and frankly they are just kind of boring. You really just tap boxes, wait a couple hours, and tap more boxes . It’s really just not interactive or fun enough. The funnest parts are the duels, which are more interactive, and more challenging. And for classes i would really suggest stopping the “tap the box” approach. Maybe make students actually do work to brew a potion, grab the right ingredients, stir this amount of time. That’s way more fun than tapping boxes. Overall I find the game fun, but i also think there are lots of things that could make it WAY more fun. It’s just a little disappointing.
Straight up FIX THE ENERGY
by Will Taft on 2020/11/18 17:40
It really bothers me that I’m doing this Deathday event and I literally have 53 minutes left of it. I’ve dedicated 90% of my energy on it, and it’s about to end because this “Merula Stealing Food Task” has 5 stars... do you know how many energies it takes just to get 2 stars? 30 which means it will take 60 to get 4 and I’m going to needed 10 more for my last star. But we only get 27... This quite frankly ruins the gameplay. I downloaded this when it first came out. But then I stopped playing it because it wasn’t interactive enough, and I always ran out of energies. I’ve really had times where I was about to buy some. Which is what I know you guys want me to do, but I really just can’t. Like I’m so tired of running out of energy. And waiting 3 hours just to run out of energy again for the same task. There have been times when I was almost done, but I had to wait. But when I got back on I ran out of TIME!!!? And then I’d lose house points?!? Yeah speaking of house points it’s literally impossible to get any. I’m always in last place, and when I first played this game I lost the first 2 years which is the real reason why I stopped. Luckily though this time I won my first year. And I haven’t completed my second year yet because this Event seems fun and I want to complete it. Knowing I have so many classes I would have to attend and gain so many energies just for this event to end. I love this game but I’m slowly giving up...
Amazing game, but...
by heybestfran/pooh/sis😂 on 2020/06/25 00:22
Okay, not gonna lie. This game is so much fun and leads somewhere! It’s super interesting and the detail it puts in the castle is amazing! So, first off. The energy bar. I honestly think the energy bar doesn’t hold enough energy. It gives you like 30-40 which I don’t find enough. I recommend giving about 60. It takes 4 minutes for 1 energy to recharge, I honestly think that isn’t great and all the impatient people agree. Don’t get me started with the gems. For 1 hairstyle, your telling me it cost 50 gems?! Well you only earn many gems if you win the house cup, but if not you stuck with probably 20-30 gems. I honestly think that’s not enough and it makes people pay real cash. Hair. I think there should be more hair options. Most cost a lot of gems or coins or they just don’t fit someone’s look. Okay, here’s a complaint. When I was playing the game I did one of those things when you need 1 star to pass. I don’t like wasting energy so when I get to 1 star I just wait 2 hours. I could play with my dog, take a swim, draw, etc. I close the app for later.. Also, I know I said i’m impatient but, whatever. Anyways... I open the app and it says I didn’t even reach 1 star! I was pretty upset because I had to do this all over again and wait. Please fix this. Overall, this Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery is a amazing game! I recommend it for Harry Potter fans or others. :)
Crashes constantly
by grapefruits711 on 2019/11/21 22:26
To start off I’m actually going to talk about how this is a legitimately good game. Although there are complaints about the energy system, it isn’t that bad and helps you pace your gameplay. The storyline is genuinely interesting and the animations are well done: you can really tell how much effort the devs put in this and I’d like to thank them for that! The only main issue is the constant crashing. I’ve noticed that the courtyard and the lower floor - east are for sure the worst offenders, though recently the dungeon’s been acting up as well. This problem is especially frustrating since it’s been going on since the game’s birth. It got better since a while back (though those two sites would still crash ALL THE TIME) but recently they’ve been even worse than usual. Even trying to go sites within the Lower east floor, like the classrooms, cause the game to crash. And yes, I’ve tried restarting the game many times and even re-installing it. It’s just super annoying and disappointing that this issue has been going on for months (with numerous complaints from many, many people) but it never seems to be fully resolved. I’m not sure if this is because the devs are too busy designing hideous clothes and “🤡 make-up” or because this issue is somehow completely unresolvable. If it were to be fixed it would make the gameplay experience so much smoother and enjoyable. But taking the history of this glitch into account, I don’t think it’ll ever be fully fixed.
It isn’t bad

I’m only in Year One, but my experience so far is not wonderful. The “energy” element is frustrating. To get through a Five Star lesson you need around 30-something energy points, and after you spend what you have, you need to wait four minutes for a single point to recharge. If you don’t mind games where you have to put down your device for a couple hours in order to keep playing, it isn’t bad at all, but I was hoping for something more engaging. This game is hardly mentally engaging. There is barely a mystery, you just have to keep slowly following the plot. Not only is it difficult to get through a single lesson, you sometimes need even more energy just to unlock the lesson. The classes themselves involve no challenge. All you do is tap things, trace shapes occasionally, and answer pretty easy Wizarding World trivia questions. All in all my criticisms are really just “too based on the energy element and not enough plot”. However I’m still playing. It’s okay as a time killer. The graphics are very nice and I like that you can name your pets and magical creatures. The plot isn’t the best, but it isn’t terrible. I like how certain responses to questions need a certain level of Knowledge, Empathy, etc, and how you can make decisions that affect the course of the game. If you don’t mind prolonged gameplay and very simple interaction this game might be worth it for you. And maybe it gets better after Year One. I’ll keep playing.
Fun, creative game hindered by energy points
by jorczy on 2020/06/30 00:50
I first want to start off by saying that this is my favorite Harry Potter game there is!!! I haven’t gotten that far yet but I’m already in love with the story and side quest!! However, I have a major grievance with the energy points. I understand that they’re to slow it down so it takes more time for the user to play, but I think they slow it down WAY too much. It takes 4 minutes for just one point, and to get through a lesson you usually need about 25 (which is maximum capacity). It’s very frustrating that it takes a lot of time to reload and it makes it so the game is more about energy points than playing and having fun. While you can purchase some more for real money or diamonds, I just feel like the game should be made slightly more accommodating for the free users that want to immerse themselves into the game and storylines by lowering the energy points needed to earn stars, or by allowing the user to complete tasks that don’t require energy points to earn energy points. The game has an option where you can tap around the castle to earn a couple more points, but it’s just not enough. That being said, the graphics and animation are both really good and I’m impressed by how similar it is to the Harry Potter movies and how they included the characters into the game! So overall, I’m in love with the storylines and characters, but the struggle to get energy points is a major drawback for me.
Good game, needs some improvements
by jewely julie on 2018/08/21 01:18
When I first saw that a Harry Potter game had arrived at the App Store, I immediately downloaded it without giving much of a second thought to it. I’ve always loved Harry Potter, and I couldn’t wait to experience the magic of Hogwarts. It’s certainly a fun game, but a bit lacking in magic. Overall, I have no technical concerns. Customer service was very helpful and got back to me quickly when I had issues, and the game works fine. I don’t have a problem with the energy itself. I understand the reasons for it, I just wish there was more you could do in between. The few mini games available at the moment aren’t fantastic. Dueling lacks any skill, gobstones is a little rude (you’re supposed to use your friends’ weaknesses), and classes are too often and too boring. I’m stuck going from one three hour thing to another where I just click and wait. And many characters are a little mean. I don’t understand why everyone got so mad at my character for losing points when I was still getting more points than anyone else in my house! Right now, I have twenty more points than the student with the second most points earned out of all of Hogwarts, yet my house is still third. Of course, I’m still on Year One, so maybe things will work out in the end? Overall, it’s fun enough and it’s the only Harry Potter app out there, so I recommend it.
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. Updated: I have noticed now that you get the unneeded energy back if you give five and only needed two to get another star. the other three will return to your energy queue. Very nice change, much appreciated. :)
Dueling Club EDITED
by Havefaith23 on 2018/07/14 01:03
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
A slow game of social role playing
by Auntie in 7th Heaven on 2018/09/07 17:45
If you are expecting a fast game of non-stop battles against the death eaters, this is quite the opposite. It focuses on pretending to make friends with npcs by answering trivia questions, going to classes, and very slowly traversing an entertaining mystery story. The slowness comes largely from gaining the necessary energy to proceed at the rate of one point every four minutes. Even if you buy energy to speed forward, many adventures specify that you cannot go to the next part for some period, often eight hours. All this means is that you should plan to play for a couple of minutes and then do other things until you can play for a few more minutes. The strength of the game is that it well delivers the atmosphere of the books and movies: riding a broomstick, learning magic, becoming an animagus, a healer, and a curse breaker. There is infrequent dueling (slightly more if you pay extra). Although the classes that you have to take over and over are usually as boring and repetitive as they seem to little children, the story is cute enough so I find myself laughing out loud at the jokes. Player choices have a significant effect on it, so that you may find yourself deeply involved, which could be frustrating while you are waiting for hours to see if you are strangled by a plant, caught sneaking into Filch”s office, or imprisoned forever in a cursed vault.
Great Game-but I need one more thing
by my_name_is: on 2018/11/20 01:37
This game is so much fun, besides that one annoying thing we always complain about: the energy. Maybe 1 energy every 1 min and 30 secs? Besides that, there is another thing that really annoys me. All this talk about quidditch, and yet I never get to play. The first year(I’m year four now) I was really looking forward to kicking Merula’s buttocks in a quidditch match when I realised they don’t actually play. The characters talk quite a bit about the annual game, and I don’t see any of it. Other than these two problems, I’m really enjoying the new update! The animals that’ve been added are soooo cool like the spider and kneazel. The magizoology concept is awesome too. Tbh though I don’t really understand why there are different colored notebooks(and it’s overwhelming)and it’s kinda difficult to get them. Maybe we could be able to get 1 notebook every class? I love how easy it is to get treat bags though! The grasslands, forests, lake, and volcanic area are so beautiful; those graphics were done amazingly well. Although, I still think the basic/original things like the main character walking, making different facial expressions, moving in any way, etc still need to be polished. All in all, the game is so much fun. However, I hope this seemed less of a “review” and more of like a suggestion’s box. Love most of what’s going on so far, though!!🐍💚💚
Fun, but needs improvement
by jewellangela on 2018/11/16 16:02
I used to play this a lot, but several updates ago I started losing interest after I noticed the energy refills for classes and quests had been tweaked. Before the update, I was able to complete an hour class with my energy at full (with a little help from my pets). And 3 hour classes I could finish with a full bar, by gathering all the extra energy hidden throughout the castle and by watching ads. Now, even with all that help I fall short and it takes me multiple logins to complete something I used to be able to do in one go. I’m not okay with this. The purpose of this game should be to make us WANT to stay logged in and playing. But it’s such an obvious money-grab, I just get frustrated and refuse to go back later. That means I’m playing my other games and giving money to THEM instead, because I actually have fun and feel like I’m accomplishing something. Here, I feel like I’m on a hamster wheel, and no matter how often I login and play, they won’t let me off until the greedy corporation’s pockets get filled. And although the animal update is adorable, I know the same flaws are going to be present when it comes to feeding/bonding, so I really see no reason to even bother. Which is sad, because I used to have fun and felt my time was well spent, and even gave a couple dollars here and there, but now I’m refusing on principle alone.
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
