Ultra Game
by PortsmouthResident on 2021/06/14 20:22
Great interactive experience as a part of Hogwarts. Has great animation, spells and visuals. Plus mini games that are really fun like the dueling club. The only thing is to make the energy instead of every 4 minutes but every one minute
I love it, just a few things tough
by mattjax11 on 2021/06/14 19:21
So, I just found out not only this game but Harry Potter exsited just two mounts ago and I have been obsessed with both. There is just two or 3 things that I don’t like about it. First, the energy. Yes I get that it takes energy to brew a potion 🧪, But what I don’t Get is that it takes 4 minutes to Get 1 thing of energy If you know what I mean. And yes this technique would work If it took 1-2 things of energy for everything but it can take from 3 to up to 10. Senocond, LET ME CHANGE MY HOUSE
Loading

I like this game but the loading screen takes a very long time. Even when there’s an error it starts over and the time starts over. It is very annoying watching it load over again please fix it.
It’s a good game but there is one huge problem
by pusheenhannah on 2021/06/14 17:38
So I downloaded this game because I am a huge Harry Potter fan. The story was really interesting but the energy is such an issue. It’s like you get to do very few things because the activities need so much energy. Basically you get to do very few things and then wait until the next day to get all your energy back and do more things. I deleted this game and haven’t downloaded back because of this issue.
Amazing

I love how calming this game is
Chiara has one of the hardest fights from what I have played so far
by Karma 0128 on 2021/06/14 14:12
If you only have One attack spell, a defense potion and you have the spell Flipendo and Rictusempra You can’t win. Every time I die to the bleed effect and I am not putting more money into this game. I don’t have enough coins to even fight her again and I lost over 600 trying to beat her. So far I haven’t had any other problems. But I’m telling you now. If you don’t have a lot of money and you are trying to get more tries. Don’t do it. It’s not worth it. I spent 3 days working on this stupid quest and now hit a road block that I can’t beat! Everyone else I have seen fighting this had every spell unlocked and was able to win without loosing much health. They are overpowered and have spells you would get near 5th year I think. Btw this is a 2 year quest so I am a little mad here. If things get worse I will lower my star review here. Seems better to watch people play the game then spend your own money trying to beat it tbh.
Needs Improvement
by Disgruntled Slytherin on 2021/06/14 12:42
Nice-looking game with an interesting story and good dialogue, but the flawed energy system makes playing it tedious and even feel like a chore. Either the energy gauge needs to have a higher base capacity (40-50 at least), or energy needs to refill faster (2:30 minutes instead of 4:00)
Change your game pls
by hi vcb v on 2021/06/14 06:10
Great but way to time consuming the energy thing is just too much time it’s good if your a patient Pearson but it’s just really annoying!

Last update wiped my progress
Never works
by Ben Barton on 2021/06/14 01:51
I used to love this game but then all of a sudden I would get this error message saying it can’t connect even on a very strong WiFi connection. I reached out to the developers and all they gave me was some lame troubleshooting steps like turn off my phone, clear temp files and cache etc. and nothing works, I tell them this and they still send me the same cookie cutter messages telling me to do the exact same thing. Proof that they do not read their emails nor do they care enough to fix whatever issue that keeps me from playing the game
The game is in the process of becoming unplayable

Game problems
by hermione-lovegood5678 on 2021/06/14 00:36
I LOVED this game so much when I was playing it. I couldn’t put it down. I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan so this game was great for me. However, the game just stopped working for me. I’ve tried deleting it and downloading it again but nothing worked. Every time I open it up, it brings me to Charms class. Then, 5 seconds later, it kicked me out of the game. I have checked my internet multiple times and it always says I’m connected. This isn’t just my internet, I’ve logged in at other places and it still kicks me out. Please help me, I love this game and just want to play it again😀.
It’s a good game.
by isla the alicorn on 2021/06/13 22:25
Let me start out by saying that I am very satisfied with the game however when I got to year three it made me restart the whole game! I had to make a new character and choose a new name and a new house. It was kind off upsetting. Otherwise it is a very nice game and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Harry Potter. Oh and one last thing I think that the energy time should be a lot lower or that you should get more energy for waiting that long cause right now you have to wait four minutes for one energy and a full energy when you start the game is like twenty. Bye
I love this game
by idk a player on 2021/06/13 21:08
I have only been playing for 5 minutes and I already can’t put my phone down, but my name is Rowen so things get kind of confusing
Keeps crashing
by copperrider15 on 2021/06/13 20:53
I used to play this game on my old phone. I recently wanted to download again on my iPad. For some reason the app keeps saying “can’t connect to server”. I’ve deleted and installed multiple times and restart the iPad and can not get past this problem. I actually love the game, can anyone find a solution to this?
Game is great. The energy is not.
by Keto Thor on 2021/06/13 19:21
Love the game. The story, customization, my Ravenclaw lineage. I dislike the energy requirements. I’d like to play more often but having to sit around for an hour or a day is a shame. Hopefully Hogwarts on console will be much better.
So awesome
by bjbvn on 2021/06/13 19:14
I started picking out what my avatar looks like and I loved what it looks like and then you got to pick your name and get all of your books and a wand and I really loved it because it actually makes you feel like you’re in hogwart’s!
This game is awesome

I love this game so much and I play all the time but when I watch an ad to get 3 energy’s it doesn’t give my energy’s i know it’s short review but worth every word
Please fix
by chase?! on 2021/06/13 15:20
For some reason the game keeps on login me out every now and then can you guys try to fix it
Thank you for this game

This game is the best game in the world
Trapped by dueling
by zeke3456 on 2021/06/13 09:26
If you duel, you’ll become trapped because the person you hit with a spell will keep getting hit in a never ending loop.
Harry Potter Game
by Anomonys Writer who cant spell on 2021/06/13 04:41
I love this game but there is something that I don’t like. I just started it and one of the quests says I have to wait 1 hour 30 and I am not that patient. Besides that I love the game it has good graphics, also am I able to meet Harry Potter?
Hogwarts Mystery
by shvgs on 2021/06/12 23:19
Honestly, I enjoyed the game but one of the biggest cons about the game is energy. You don’t get much and usually anything you do requires more than you have. Along side of that, if you run out of energy during a class or other mini game, it gives you 1 per 4 minutes. I find that a little stupid, I think it should give more than 1 if your waiting for 4 minutes with a timer on the mini game. Other than that, I did enjoy the game I’d recommend it for the Harry Potter fans. But when participating in one of those mini games make sure to press the 8hr choice for the timer so you have enough time to get energy.
Problems
by oceanpearl209 on 2021/06/12 19:23
No.1: NO PENALTIES AT ALL!!! No.2: Everything’s super expensive! No.3: No money bought things! Only wizard money No.4: No energy! It doesn’t make it more fun and challenging, it just makes it more frustrating Thank you
Shame on the developers!
by Gamer3475 on 2021/06/12 16:10
Edit June 2021: I recently came back to this game thinking maybe they made it a little more playable but it’s really just the same. You spend most of your time waiting for your energy to refill. Then you get to play for a couple of minutes until the energy runs out again. And if you aren’t waiting for your energy to refill, you are waiting for a timer to run out before you can do the next quest! This game teaches you extreme patience and I don’t mean that as a compliment! But wait, the game will let you progress if you just purchase diamonds with your real money! It’s pretty pathetic that a game developer would use the popularity of Harry Potter to fleece fans out of their hard earned money. This game is really just a scam to get you to transfer your money directly to the developers. You either have to be the most patient person one the planet or rich to enjoy this game. Shame on the developers! Original review: This game could be fun. I don’t know. Haven’t been able to play for more then 5 minutes at a time. You do one action and run out of energy. Then you have to wait several hours for the energy to regenerate. Makes the game play super choppy. Game devs are obviously trying to milk Potter fans dry of our money. This is not my idea of a fun game. Could be WITHOUT the ridiculous energy system. Disappointing!

i love this game i play it constantly 10/10 recomend
So slow
by KariElidaxx on 2021/06/12 01:40
Honestly, it’s an amazing game, me and my friends are obsessed with it. However, it is BEYOND slow. The load up screen takes absolutely forever and you need such a strong connection. I understand it’s a lot to load- but even games such as Call of Duty mobile (that also have an insane amount of data) are way faster.
AWSOME GAME!!!!!!

HARRY POTTER LOVERS THIS IS YOUR GAME
by Sushidog012 on 2021/06/12 00:10
IM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH HARRY POTTER AND THIS GAME! It’s literally Harry Potter but u as Harry. The only flaw is it doesn’t let u make ur name one of the Harry Potter characters I typed in Hermione Granger, Cho Chang, Ginny Weasley, and Luna Lovegood but it ain’t work.I had to make my name Moaning Myrtle (lol) that’s it I guess.
Money and time pit
by Miaeap on 2021/06/11 21:55
Tired of spending a fortune to win an adventure then get timed out because you don’t have enough attributes too beat a dragon. Was enjoying the game. but, it’s to stressful now - I can’t enjoy it knowing I’ll always be a loser because I have a job and can’t spend enough time or money, playing the game to get enough attributes - pets - for magical creatures to get any where.

Good game wish it had cheaper options in the outfits🛍
Why it needs a change
by w.i.n.a.c on 2021/06/11 21:02
It is good but every minute you have to pay 1 dollar so if you pay for every thing you will have spent three hundred dollars
So fun 😍😍😍😄😄
by mogn34! on 2021/06/11 21:01
Hi! I love this game it is so fun! I feel like I am actually in hogwarts and it is just amazing! The only problem is that there is ads and you have to wait a long time to do some things. But anyways I love it! I am only a first year right now close to being a second year. The cool thing is about the game it is like your life. Like you can call in love and date. You can duel actual people and stuff like so cool! 😱 Also you can actually play quittich! My sister has the game and she is a third year and she goes to hogsmade and plays quittich. All I can say is that this game is so great and so fun I love it. You should totally get it!!😁😁😁 Harry Potter Hogwarts mystery is so fun I really enjoy 😊 it!! Get it today!!
All In All
by Tillie B. on 2021/06/11 18:15
I love Harry Potter, and love that this game isn’t in the golden trio era! There are little bits of the game that are frustrating though, such as when you get a task it doesn’t let you do it for HOURS there is a literal count down. But if you don’t want to wait you can pay diamonds but those are hard to get. Not to mention how expensive things are in the shop and I have to pay to get my avitar glasses. But it has great quality and if you can deal with these problems it is a great game)
I’M SO OBSESSED!
by Nymph Tonkss on 2021/06/11 16:26
This game is so addicting and I log in every day. This game is great. You would like it even if you don’t watch Harry Potter.
If you like Club Penguin, try it out. It’s free.

No help
by Delaphiano on 2021/06/11 05:48
I have asked three times for them to give me back my fifth year back . I had up to the spider and I think I bough one and I had all the Close you can buy with the money you get from the game and I use a lot of my Diamond to get close and spend a lot of money into the game to get farther into the game faster. Now they are making me start from the beginning when I have put a lot of money into the game . I have given them my email so they can contact me still have not received my game back. I really loved the game until now. Sad that they don’t care to help me get my game back. I hope they don’t treat any one else like l am being treated. Please read this and decide if you want this game for you or your children if you do I hope they treat you better I have even been very nice about this hole thing and still been nice writing this on 06 -10-2021
Love this game buuut
by Harrylover9/34 on 2021/06/11 03:48
I love this game it’s so sick I’ve always loved Harry Potter and everything having to do with it, it’s my childhood. And this game is so freaking cool to keep that Harry potter nostalgia going. I play this pretty much everyday. I just redownloaded a couple days ago. And I remember why I deleted it in the first place. I deleted it because of the thing everyone is noticing. The energy. And the time it takes for you to wait till you can go onto the next mission/part of the story. I wanna play this game till I finish all of the years and I wanna see it through and see all of the things the game has for us. And I understand you can bypass the time it takes with gems and that’s a way for you guys to make money on the app, and the same thing kind of with the energy counter. But. It’s very very frustrating. It’s gonna take me ages to complete the game with the timer and the energy situation so I might lose the fun I have with it. Anyways. If you were to fix anything. I recommend either slowing down the energy timer to two minutes per one energy instead of four. Or four for three or more. And for the timer till the edit part of the story. I say either completely get rid of that terrible mechanic. Or slow it down. Or even make the gems to unlock it fast even cheaper. Please please try to do this. The game will be so much better!
Bully’s in the game
by dgnrjey on 2021/06/11 01:18

by Hithisisfirestar on 2021/06/10 23:25
i hate this game so much. its a waste of time. do not play it. its incredibly frustrating and disappointing.
Never loads
by Antisocial_Deviant on 2021/06/10 23:20
I used to have this game when it was first released and I LOVED IT! Of course my interest died off a bit (as it tends to do with phone games) and I deleted it. I got a new phone recently and decided to try this game again, but no matter what the game never loads anything once I reach where I have to create my own character. It’s all blank/none of the options or my character load. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the game multiple times and the issue never goes away. Not a WiFi issues (I’ve tried on multiple reliable sources), and not a phone/system problem (I’ve got the iPhone 12 Pro). I’m really disappointed. Is there anything I can do to try and fix this or is this a bug that can be fixed?
I love the game ❤️💜💚🖤💝💕💞💓
by andndnnf on 2021/06/10 22:13
The app is very good I love it becuase you get to do the same stuff that you get to see I. The real movie which is really cool 😎 so I think I will enjoy how much further I get to get into this game when it’s more better but you should leave the in app purchases alone for the games please that would be really helpful to some people
I love harry potter

Fun but.
by jehdhdhdyd on 2021/06/10 21:12
I really liked the game until I was stuck on a level I was supposed to meet with someone but i didn’t have enough money so the only thing I could do is purchase credits which I did not do I would rather not spend money on a mobile game
Good but...

It’s great but...
by Lexxisgamer123 on 2021/06/10 18:11
I love the game, since being a Harry Potter fan I think we all adore the characters the details and everything etc. But this game I feel like has many things that need to be fix (in my OWN opinion) for instance: I feel like the Energy things are a bit crazy and this much because you have to wait for 4 minutes to get and one and watch an add which doesn’t do any good in the action. And the things you spend your energy on is a bit to much. I mean we don’t have the time sometimes to wait because you know. And I feel like this is something big that NEEDS to be worked on. I feel like if you don’t want to do that quest and the moments you have to wait to finish it I think that’s a bit you know ridiculous because we may be sick of waiting to finish and want to try something different and do a different quest. And I feel like you should be able to date or go in to any classroom at any level because it’s a lot of work and money. But over all I love the game! ❤️❤️
Meh.
by Ashjoy92 on 2021/06/10 15:36
Hard to get books to adopt creatures. Every time I do a potion in snapes class, the trace never works so I always get needs improvement 🙄Can’t believe I wasted money 🤦‍♀️
Just one problem
by Narwhall83 on 2021/06/10 12:57
I love the gameplay, storyline, and characters, but there’s just one kinda big problem-energy. Not only do you start with 25 max energy and most classes need way more than that to complete, but the energy takes way to long to regenerate. Though the paintings and such give energy, it doesn’t at all suffice. Even tho there are no ads you’re forced to watch in the game, I end up watching several ads in a row to get energy to complete a class.
Great game! One thing though
by Cookiedog1376 on 2021/06/10 05:03
This game is AWESOME! The one thing I say is be able to change ur avatars house after re-dowloading it. I got frustrated because I thought that is what happened when I picked the wrong house on a different device. But I Gryffindor on this device and proud to!!
please fix the energy system
by $HABANK on 2021/06/10 00:33
i just really think it’s too long
Fine. (Read for full rundown of problems with this game)
by squishy judger on 2021/06/10 00:22
(No spoiler alerts here) This app overall has a nice concept and developing storyline, currently I am on year 2 so I can't give you what i truly think of the entire game just yet, reguardless I will write based on what I have done so far. Overall yes there are energy issues and yeah it is annoying, that's been said already in other comments therefor I do not feel the need to write it here.. but I will say in year two you start to HAVE to do "study lessons" in order to do the actual lesson, these are pointless. You don't learn anything, we only really repeat the previous lesson for the study lesson I am doing currently. It's just a way for you to burn energy and buy more gems to get energy. Developers should be ashamed for the amount of things they practically FORCE people to pay them or you have to wait a couple hours. But the real problem To me is the status (Empathy, Knowledge, and courage) the status itself is fine, but whenever you get to a part such as a duel and it "recommends" (really you can't win without having OVER those statuses) it takes quite a long time, especially if you already bought all the items having what you need or can not afford them. (Not to mention the people who don't realize you lose and keep spending their 120 coins, I did that sadly) Really, this game gives off a pay, or wait kind of vibe, because if you don't pay for the coins or pay for the gems (I don't think anyone can save up enough gems within a month for the amount their charging) you just can't move forward. I was stuck at this first duel for at least 3 weeks, until I finally saved enough to buy one stinkin peice of clothing, even then I didn't have enough. So this is an issue especially if you are stuck. Another thing is the "lock time" you pay a freakishly amount of gems (again the money 💵) or wait 12 hours just to unlock the next chapter? seems to me like you don't want people to completely finish your game because based on what I read in other comments there's really nothing to do after year 7. This is probably because you thought no one would finish your game. Fix these issues and you got yourself a 5 star game, even with these issues it's still a semi decent game, wouldn't say I would 100% recommend to people who don't have patience, but overall it's a fine game, a little disappointing. UPDATE: Literally I took a study session i had FULL energy and after barley reaching ONE STAR I got no energy left!! It takes me FIVE HOURS to complete a 5 stars needed quest because it takes over DOUBLE my energy. Based on the reviews I'm not the only people with this issue occurring! 😢 You have lost so many people due to the energy issue. Why not fix it? -Hope this helps you to decide about the app.
Um…
by nerdgirl86 on 2021/06/09 23:59
I have played this game for at least a few years. I was halfway through my fourth year and the next time I opened the game it started me completely over! So….I deleted the game. Two stars because it is fun
Soo addictive
by cyborpunky on 2021/06/09 22:50
This game is so addictive if you leave in one spot it leaves you with a cliff hanger to think about
Love it! but ....
by JJW😜😁🤓 on 2021/06/09 19:14
So I have had this game for like a week or two now and it’s awesome, the graphics are great and it’s really fun and interesting and this game is perfect for Harry Potter/ witchCraft and Wizardry but the energy goes down to fast and to where I can hardly complete a class or task and it gets annoying and kinda ruins the fun so I ask to make is so you don’t run out of energy after doing a single class or task this will make the game so much more fun and I guarantee that you will have more people playing. Thanks for the great game, hope you guys keep working on it !!😋
It’s a amazing game
by allamsiw on 2021/06/09 18:09
I’m not just saying it’s good because it’s Harry Potter but it’s also super fun 10/10
Harry Potter 💕
by yvng.kayy on 2021/06/09 17:41
I love this game it’s so much fun but there are some issues I think that need to b worked on, first one is that we barely hold energy and it’s super hard to get more unless you wait long enough or if you buy it ! I think it should b easier to get energy so we as Harry Potter fans can play longer second the note books are also hard to get if there was an easier way to get some of those as well that would b wonderful ! Last is the event it’s hard to do the events when ur dueling takes forever to let you duel I feel that it should depend on how many time u lose a duel is how long u wait for the next but if u keep winning then u should b able to keep dueling not spend 55 gems to duel again ! But I love the game it’s one of my favorite and it will always b a five star game to me! 💕💕💕
Disappointed in the development team and service
by rob07vet on 2021/06/09 17:27
Don’t get me wrong I like playing this game as it is one of my top games to play, my issue is with the developers and the customer service representatives. When one earns a reward by completing a task that is assigned, one should receive said reward, especially energy which is required to complete the tasks. I noticed I was not receiving all the energy I was earning from completing the daily tasks, so I reached out to the support team. I was notified that it was designed that way and even though I earned the energy I would not receive it because my energy meter was full. They also said the only energy that goes above the meter would be purchased energy and the overall daily planner task completion energy, pet energy and friendship level completion energy. Three that they mentioned involve completing a task to earn the energy and the other tasks you have to purchase. So if completing tasks to get this energy while having a full meter allows the meter to go above what is allowed why not all the energy you earned from completing any task that they assign to you. I pointed out this inconsistency and illogical reasoning behind their decision to not allow all types of earned energy to go above the meter. After all you earned it and it’s not like they allow you not to save it for later when your meter is low or out when you need it.

Love the game but the gobstones ask questions and when I get them right, FULL checkmarks, it says I don’t have COURAGE or SMARTS like I literally got the question CORRECT. It IS fun and AWESOME except the gonstones. It’s very frustrating and I’m just spending and sPEndiNG mONeY. Ok but srsly I do recommend this app. We just need an update on Gobstones!
BAD GAME DESIGN BALANCE: CAN’T EVER GET SPECIAL BOOKS=MONEY
by I don't know about you on 2021/06/09 02:39
You need many types of books to buy things like creatures in this game. GOOD LUCK, YOU NEVER CAN GET THEM. You need creatures in this game. GOOD LUCK, THEY COST LOTS OF BOOKS. so what’s the solution? YOU, OR YOUR CHILD HAS TO SPEND LOTS OF REAL MONEY $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. BAD GAME DESIGNERS = BAD GAME BALANCE. DON’T DOWNLOAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
great game!
by Foxmoon9❤️ on 2021/06/08 22:14
I love this game! It’s so great! That being said, it doesn’t have no downsides. The ‘micro’ transactions are more like mega transactions. I get you have to make money, but seriously? This a ridiculous amount of money for a game! And the fact we have to spend money for Magical Milestones! I hate that! Still, if you don’t need the extra ruffles on a dress, then it’s still a good game. I do have some suggestions! Could you make Chiara available in the First Date, Celestial Ball, and Valentines Day sidequests? I don’t know if you already did this, but I am dating her in the new Romance feature and want to be able to do those sidequests with her. I also want some more hair options- like wavy, a kind of Korra bob (get someone who’s seen S4 of Legend Of Korra), and more options for wearing hair up. I want my MC to have a long wavy high ponytail, but that’s not available! Also, I’d like more unnatural hair colors. That’s all! Thanks devs! I’m back!!! Ok, so here’s an idea: being able to have normal activities. They don’t reward energy or anything, just something to pass the time. I think this would be good for when my activity things (like Quidditch and Gobstones) are on ‘cooldown’ and I have to wait for my energy to refill. Some ideas for the normal activities: -Climbing a tree -After school activities -Practicing magic -Writing in a diary -Just hanging out with your girl/boyfriend in the game (like Chiara or Barnaby)
Just Add this...
by game girl!❤️💕🌈🌌 on 2021/06/08 21:38
I have always loved Harry Potter! I have read all the books. And watch the movies constantly, I just wish they would add the dress with Roses and bun hairstyle they put in the add. Plus they should make it more dramatic. We want drama, love! Also I think they should update the energy thing, it gets annoying sometimes. Just want you to know Thank you. Please make these changes! -Harry Potter fan
No so far
by TWill391 on 2021/06/08 21:25
I LOVE Harry Potter I got this game yesterday I loved it at first but today in in the middle of a quest it what’s me to do something for 100 coins and I have 54. And I don’t buy thing on apps so that made me so mad! Now I need to delete this app and start all over agin! When In 2 days I made it super far
So far so good

Why
by 💜🏳️‍🌈 on 2021/06/08 15:31
I would give you five stars if I don’t keep getting glitched out if the game. It’s getting to the point where I can’t get in the game. Thank you for your time and happy pride month
I really do enjoy it
by MimitheNugg on 2021/06/08 13:39
I really like the game, but it crashes CONSTANTLY. An example, right now it won’t even let me in the app. I’m on the loading screen, and then after the green bar loads, the screen goes black and goes to my phone screen, and it’s been like that since yesterday. Also, whenever I try to create books, watch memories, or sometimes, do simple tasks, it kicks me out and I have to run the game again. Apart from that though, the game play that I have played, the game is very lovely and fun! I just hope the glitching, and crashing weren’t there.😕
BE MORE INCLUSIVE
by bella_12345687 on 2021/06/08 13:35
Don’t get me wrong I like the game a lot but as someone who is non binary I don’t get many options. I can only pick better witch and wizard plus there are no androgynous hair or clothes. Plus on most tasks make you wait 7 hours unless you spend 100 gems but they are pretty hard to get :(
So completely frustrated. Beyond disappointed.
by gamergirl3590 on 2021/06/08 10:55
I so beyond frustrated with this game. The concept and gameplay is so fun but I literally can do anything in this game without waiting 2 hrs. in between the 5 min spurts of actual gameplay. This could have been something beautiful, and yet so beyond disappointing.
Why change it?
by Smilingts on 2021/06/08 06:09
I’ve been playing this game for three years. At points it could be slow going but it’s not a finish it in a day kind of game. My only complaint has been collecting books, it could take weeks to get enough to get a creature. Now you have added paper to make a book, giving out fewer books and taking longer to save paper. Full Marks use to be fun to strategize. Now by changing diamonds to coin and increasing items to buy you have taken away opportunity to collect books and made it frustrating to strategize a win. Anyone can take it if they have a few coin and you have to play constantly to keep up with the pack. I don’t like the new changes. I will give it a chance but I’m seriously thinking of ending my game.
Very good game just needs a few things fixed
by personmanman on 2021/06/08 05:40
I love this game. It is very fun to play on my free time and I would play it all day if I could. There’s one thing stopping me though, the energy. I end up only being able to play for about 5-10 minutes because just one class will go through a full amount of energy, and then you have to wait almost 2 hours for another full amount, so the only thing you can do is play with the animals which gets boring after a while. Also they are very hard to get too, I don’t even know how to get the notebooks other than completing daily quests, which are daily so… I don’t even have a single silver one, so maybe make those a little easier to get, or explain how to get them or something. Also pets are far to expensive, especially because there are little to no ways to get diamonds, which I know is probably on purpose, but the ad makes it seem easy to get them, I haven’t even been able to afford one. This game is overall very fun, with just a few things like the energy easily depleting, or the animals and pets being way to hard to get both of these reasons causing me to forget about the game often and forgetting the plot, but either way, great game!!
To make the game better
by avrvavavmv on 2021/06/08 02:51
This game would be way better with slightly longer times on mini adventures.
Too long of a wait for energy
by Jake schlobohm on 2021/06/08 02:47
When you have to get energy you should have to wait half a min but 4 MINUTES!? No. It takes too long to get energy.Besides that the game is awesome and is the best hp game besides that one flaw. So Please fix this and please see that 4 minutes is too long
It’s a great game
by MoonStar91 on 2021/06/08 02:08
I would like more colors for hair but I like the game
Erased everything
by katharine alley on 2021/06/08 01:37
I have been playing this since about November 2020. I was in year 4 I believe and after a bit of a break I came back and everything was gone and it wanted me to create a whole new avatar and start from day one. I deleted whole app. I’ve spent a good amount of money through out and spent a lot of time with all the side challenges. So disappointed
Awesome, read until the end I have request
by Animal whisper!🐩 on 2021/06/08 00:53
This is an awesome game, I feel like I’m at Hogwarts and it’s really fun. It’s very realistic and very easy to imagine myself in a Harry Potter movie. I have a request, and it’s not about the game, can you please make a game dedicated to magical creatures. I just love the idea of standing in an office and looking around at hundreds of magical animals. I know it’s a lot to ask and it probably won’t happen but there’s no harm in trying do if you could that would be amazing if you did make a game about that.
Getting better
by !!!12 on 2021/06/07 23:33

Energy bust
by Cywofh:92$fkdhrb on 2021/06/07 22:56
I love the game but it’s very irritating having to wait for energy
It’s really good but,
by THE HARRY POTTER UNICORN on 2021/06/07 22:28
So overall this app is a great game for all potterheads but I don’t know if it’s just me that has this problem, but every time I try to go to the great hall to end year 1 it just loads for a really long time and then crashes. Otherwise, no problems!
This new update messed something up
by happyjuice5 on 2021/06/07 21:00
I don’t know what’s going on with this new update but I can’t access anything on the right side of the screen except the events tab. I can’t use the power gift, a gift box or the watch afforded gems feature.
Good but couldn’t finish Year 1
by YOU MATTER ❤️❤️❤️ on 2021/06/07 20:28
This is an amazing game. I agree with the other comment that says it’s a good game but they couldn’t finish the beginning of year two. Except for me it’s.... worse? So I was so excited because Ravenclaw (my house) has won in my first year in the game. But every time I try to go to the end of year feast, my game crashes. No matter how many times I restart my game or even the entire phone, I am sent back to the home screen. But then it got worse. Today, it took me straight to the feast, and I was so happy! But it immediately froze and then crashed. Also the energy thing is annoying. Maybe you get THREE every four mins instead of just. One. Please fix, this is my first review, so obviously this game is important enough that I would write a review. Thank you so much for this great game! Because I have only wrote complaints so far I should let you know this is one of my favorite games. If you are considering getting it, you DEFINITELY SHOULD!! You can customize so much on your avatar and get pets too! You can join different clubs aside from your house. You can make choices too as to how you respond to things! I love this game, hope I’m not boring you to death with this intensely loooong review!!! Edit: I never could get to the feast and deleted the app. I will redownload but if I finally get to the feast again and still doesn’t work, I will have to lower rating to two stars. I apologize but this bug is impossible to overlook. Best wishes to the developer; if you guys fix this, total ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
🖤
by *-*maddy*-* on 2021/06/07 20:27
I like this game a lot. The quests are doable, you also are also able to customize a decent amount. Things cost a lot especially for your dorm but you barely go in there or at least I haven’t needed to yet. Potions class is great except for one person who you will learn later on. They tend to win over the teachers trust which makes your character seem unreliable and untruthful. Overall a great game even if you aren’t huge into harry potter(like me). It’s amazing and fun to learn potions and spells, learn how to ride a broom, make new friends etc. Love it and recommend you at least giving it a try. Play do a bit and try it out!<3
Bad
by lillylillyash on 2021/06/07 19:53
This game is bad and boring I deleted it not a lot of timeline boring and as a fan of Harry Potter this is a bad timeline I have watched every Harry Potter and this time line is not a good one....
All great but one thing.
by Andjdhakakdbdjalbx on 2021/06/07 17:05
The game is amazing. Like playing your own Hogwarts adventure! Only huge problem I have is the wait times on things. I wouldn’t mind but it gets ridiculously long and you can only do like one mission a day. Also using energy is a hassle unless you spend real money. Please please reduce the long wait times and this will be almost a perfect game!
Ehhh……
by Mia_chanpion on 2021/06/07 15:21
Ok so first of all this game lags you out WAY to much and when it lags you out it will delete stuff that you got. I ONE TIME got to get 200 energy wow great yeah it lagged me out and guess who lost it all, me. Now I’ve already heard complains a lot and I am seriously with them when I say how do you supposed to find out how you change your house, I understand to change your house you have to go to settings and press new game but people don’t do that they just delete it like seriously dude. Next of all it takes away too long to get energy four minutes just to get one piece of energy! really? in most events or tasks only give you an hour to complete that’s not enough time. I know if you level up they’ll give you more energy the chance of you leveling up is extremely rare. And my next complaints the events, the limited time special events they won’t appear half the time and there are some really good ones I want to try out the never appeared for me. and some of the special event should even have to be an event they should be part of your task like becoming Animagist, Petronas those should just be part of your task you should have to do a special event for those. Also the meet a friend I don’t like it takes away courage empathy or smarts for some thing when you get the correct answer it’s almost impossible to get all three gems because it takes away stuff from you. And really this game doesn’t really save well I understand if you delete it it just pops right back where you were but it’s still annoying. No I admit the story is sort of good but seriously can you throw in a bad Gryffindor something wouldn’t kill you.
Love it!
by Rabbits rock! on 2021/06/07 13:35
I love this game but I have found an issue. I am on my third year and I am doing the animagus adventure but playing gobstones with Talbot is almost impossible now. Plz respond to me. This event ends in 4 days and 4 mins. Thank you!
I love this game
by isiekel on 2021/06/07 04:17
I love this game because u can do lots of stuff like practice spells, pick your house and lots more. Harry Potter is my favorite book and movie. Harry Potter is the best thing in the whole world.
Energy
by AlexandreaPaige on 2021/06/07 03:49
I really wish y’all can figure out a way for us to get more energy. I feel like I can hardly do anything because you don’t get a lot of energy to do anything. I hate that I can’t get into the game because I do one lesson & all my energy is gone. I really love Harry Potter. I just added the game back recently & now I realize why I deleted it in the first place because you really can’t enjoy the game because your energy runs out so early.
Good but some glitches
by 23 allergens on 2021/06/07 02:18
This is an ok game but not too thrilling. It’s fun but there is 1 huge flaw . I did the math and found out that in 100 minutes your bar fills up completely. 100 MINUTES!!!!!! I mean is it worth? In 1 first year charms class I used up 200 energy pieces. Also I wanted to know how to convince Ben Copper to join you to search for the cursed vaults. I tried so many times I ended up spending 700 coins on it and still can’t beat it. 1 last thing, when I started I made myself a hufflepuff and later changed it to Slythyrin. Now I want to change it again and I’m stuck a slythyrin. Also when I went to the great hall to try and convince Ben to come with me, every time I click on the button that takes me back to the corridor, ut loads for about 30 seconds then takes me back to the home screen of my phone. Thanks for your time, Emma
Cool

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! 🤗
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.
It’s great until...
by Cooper1357902468 on 2021/01/12 00:41
This game is very fun for Harry Potter lovers or people who are interested in witchcraft and wizardry. I have had this game for a while and enjoy it thoroughly, but there are some things that I think would be better if changed. First off, the energy. It makes sense that you need energy to complete tasks, but what doesn’t make sense is how long it takes. It takes 4 minutes to get one energy, which doesn’t do much, in the case that you need 3-5 energy for most tasks. I think that it would be better 4 minutes for 3 energy or something like that, or they could have it 2 minutes for 1 energy,if that makes any sense. The second thing that I think should be changed is redownloading it. I got the game and enjoyed the game for a while, then stopped playing it, due to the issue previously discussed. I was going through apps that I haven’t played in a while and deleted this app. I later got it back because I kept seeing ads for it and decided to try it again. I let the game load up, and it automatically resumed where I was previously. I wish that it would restart your game, rather then resuming it. My reason why is because I forgot what was happening in the game, so I wanted to see, but I couldn’t. That was quite confusing. I also had chosen the wrong house previously and tried to do it again, but because of this issue, my house choice was permanent. Also, if you chose the wrong action, you can’t go back and change it.
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.
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!
No way to go but up.

This game honestly has a strong base to build on, it has interesting side quests right along with the main quest. I like the inter house friendships. It’s pretty clear choice does matter in the game if only a little. It would be nice to see a bit of variation in every players story. It doesn’t make sense that Snape would hate on a slytherin or McGonagall would favor one for extra lessons. Both were pretty known for their own house favoritism, but I digress. The game itself is fun for the short while we get to play it at a time. I think before a new game decides to start panhandling so aggressively for money it should build its player loyalty first. First it would be cool to maybe do some extra activity to earn back some energy, the hidden energy tokens only go so far, maybe scrub some cauldrons for Snape to earn back 5 energy. Polish broomsticks for madam hooch, obviously you can’t do these tasks all day every day to earn free energy we all would have graduated long before now, maybe pay 200 gold for each task you can do something for each teacher related to their area of study. It would keep wait times down and players happy, and once the players run out of gold and energy then advertise a gem pack to them for a slightly decreased price. I’ve got several other ideas that would benefit both player and Jam City, but there isn’t enough space here for all that.
PLEASE READ: Love this game but needs to change....
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.
it’s ok
by iTunes essary on 2020/12/15 00:47
I recently re-downloaded the game after not playing it for a while. It is a fun game, I will say. But I only have a few problems with it. One is the amount of advertising it has in it’s own game. You have to pay for “Energy Orbs” or wait for like 2 hours. I usually don’t mind waiting, but the lessons in the game, for example, Charms class, only have a two hour limit, which means that you have two hours to finish the lesson, or you have to start over. Most of the lessons also require more Orbs than you start out with as well, which annoys me. Another problem I have is with the limits on the lessons, as I said before. They don’t give you enough time to completely refill your Orbs, making you HAVE to pay if you want to get “5 stars” on the lesson. Recently, since it’s Christmas time, I was invited to the Weasley’s for the holidays, and in order to get to the Weasley’s, you have to ask professors what their traditions are, ( Snape’s is enjoying a nice quiet snowfall on Christmas Day ) and then you have to learn spells and stuff to make gifts, and I knew it was going to take me a while, which is fine, but little did I know there was also a time limit on this one! It only gives you about two days, and if you don’t finish in those days, you just can’t go. And now I’m sad because I don’t get to see Fred and George :( I will say the game would be fun if you were willing to pay 30$ every time you wanted more Orbs to play. Thanks for reading, I usually never write reviews lol.
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!!
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.
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
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.
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 ❤️😍
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!
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.
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.
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! 👍😂
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.
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!
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!
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.
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
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.
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!!
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.
It's pretty good...
by v1ctor1aa on 2020/12/15 04:46
So honestly I've never really been a big Harry Potter fan but this game came up in an Ad for another game I was playing on my phone and I decided to download it. The game is actually quite entertaining and fun for the most part but some things did come to my attention. At first, they give you enough energy to do certain tasks, and I never really paid attention to it until I realized that you had to wait four minutes to recover *just one* ball of energy. Normally for a whole lesson you need about 35-45 balls of energy in order to get through the whole thing. And waiting over an hour for the energy to fill back up, just so it can reach its limit of 26 is pretty annoying. I even went as far as to spend my money and buy a bundle pack that came with gems, energy, and coins and it's helped a lot. But I do wish it was more accessible and faster to regain those balls of energy or if there were certain things you could do in order to get them. Another thing is the tasks, I like how interactive the game is but it's bothersome to have to wait over four hours just to have a conversation with someone or move onto the next task in the game. And then if you did want to rush it, and use your gems, it's over-the-top expensive for it too! I guess my only complaint is the wait times for both the tasks and energy. Other than that the game is really fun and entertaining! ❤️
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.
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.
It’s okay but...
by celestial202 on 2020/12/02 04:51
You will not be able to win an event, no matter how much you live on the game and the best clothing and dorm items are only available through the events. It is the same with the special events where you get new spells too, making it impossible to proceed and win without spending money, and a lot of it too. The jewels are ridiculously priced, otherwise I would have spent real money. Just not attached to my character at all since they can never win. I’m not a loser and neither is any “avatar” that I play as. Would like to see that fixed. They put out a survey and after getting feedback just added more clothes (that I’m not interested in personally) and left everything else. This game could be SO good if they just listened better to suggestions. I literally lived on this game for an event (waking up at night even) to make sure I utilized my energy to the fullest and was STILL not able to finish the event and lost out on making a werewolf friend. This is an example of ONE of the many events that I have done this with. Was able to become an animagus only because I had hundreds of gems saved up. It was also the first time they did an event like that, so of course, the following events they made impossible in order to promote the purchasing and spending of jewels/ gems.. I like the matching game so much more and I play that multiple times a day and feel accomplished while still getting my Harry Potter fix ;) Again, could be so much better.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Limited Time On Those “Quests”: Mainly Animagus
by cwg64 on 2021/02/17 22:46
So I have loved the game for a very long time now, playing it and of course having fun. Sometimes those “quest” things pop up (Limited things like animagus) and I do some of it and then it runs out of time which means I have just wasted a few things on it which is not really that fair so I just brush it off. Now ever since I first saw that Become An Animagus thing I have always wanted to do it and I vowed to myself that I won’t just do a few things on it, I would try to do everything. So I did, I did try everything, but I ended up wasting ALL GEMS AND ALL COINS, for nothing. And as of now I have only a few minutes left of it and I am not even able to do the step I’m already on BECAUSE OF ENERGY. So I am now crying because of this, because I have wanted to become an Animagus in this game for such a lot time and now it’s all for nothing. My point in this review is you need to make these “quests” longer either that or make it in game time, for example: You open the game and your in the middle of one of those quests and the time limit on the quest is the same but right where you last played the game, so what I’m saying here is that they should be like when you play it the time goes down, but when you don’t play it, the time stays the same. I hope this review changes anything because this is most likely happening to others.
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
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...
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.
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.
Poor Gameplay mechanics and audio.
by BradAppReviews on 2020/08/21 02:26
Mechanics- The game is very slow to progress. A very sit around and wait after playing for like 10 minutes type game. You get a very low amount of energy to play with and the recharge rate is 1 energy every four minutes. In between story missions are like little side quests where you go to charms class and such and often you will go to the same class several times and every new charm or similar type class is the same. Just a very poor linear design choice. You are able to duel as well which is a very simple encounter of a few types of engagements and attack styles. After you duel there’s about a 7 hour wait time before you can do it again. When you run out of energy you should just wait it out because buying an energy bar fill, is pretty expensive as well as in game currency. The audio - there is little to none audible character dialogue which in a sense is I guess understandable do to the fact that they couldn’t really get the original actors to voice act. But in place of that is your typical verbal noises such as gasps, awes, grunts, ect. Some of the characters are also portrayed a little differently then in the films such as personality and things. Filch is a lot “meaner” and is portrayed as more involved then the series had him. Hagrid talks pretty weird. Overall it’s just not what I expected this game to be and I am quite disappointed personally. Not as fun as it could have been or interesting a 2/5 for me.
Love this game but.......
by MsW0rld on 2018/07/08 14:24
I have been playing this game for awhile now and absolutely love it. I will even set timers so I know when to go back and finish my mission (when energy refills). It is a bit annoying that it takes 4 minutes per 1 energy but beggars can’t be choosers! I’m not big on spending money on games but I’m at a point where I’m stuck trying to duel the boggart Voldemort and my courage points are at level 17 (needs to be level 19) to beat him. I have tried dueling him but fail each time. I have spent most of my money buying clothes and I even purchased the $6.99 gems deal just now. Also spent all of those on clothes. I am now at level 18, tried a duel twice and lost both times, now I am out of money and gems! Problem is now that I’ve spent $6.99 on gems, spent all the gems and game money I am stuck! I can not get out of the duel screen to go do a class to earn courage points and or money. It will not let me out no matter what I do. I want to keep playing but at this point I can’t go any further at all. I am stuck. The only option I have is to spend more real money, which I really don’t want to do. Before I spent the $6.99 on gems I was able to come and go. As I was doing flying classes to build up my courage points, which is what I was going to do today. Is there anything you can do to help me? If we get this fixed I will change my rating and review to a 5 star! Please help! Thank you....
Glitchy and poor customer service
by Hollymarie7 on 2020/12/11 15:02
I’ve been playing this game for a couple of months now. I love the concept since I’m a big Harry Potter fan. But, I’ve had some pretty disappointing experiences. The worst was when I was unable to access the game for 3 days because a scoreboard for a special event popped up when I opened the game and completely covered the screen. It was frozen and would not close despite force closing the app numerous times. I contacted customer service and was asked for my player ID, which I provided. I never heard back. I basically had to wait until the special event was over before I could get into the game again. This caused me to miss out on another event I really wanted to participate in along with the associated prizes and levels I might have achieved. With other games I play, when something similar happens they will usually issue a courtesy credit/prize for your inconvenience. Not on this one. Pretty bad. I also find the sound to be glitching. It goes on and off on its own without any interference from me. It’s not my phone. All other apps have continuous sound. And finally it would be nice to have more energy points, which are needed for a majority of the games, as you have to spend money fairly consistently to get anything done or progress in the levels. This doesn’t have much to do with skill, rather most of the time it’s that you’re out of energy and can’t continue.
Bad Energy Usage Setup, amazing otherwise
by Mastiff19 on 2018/06/13 09:44
For a free mobile game this is stunningly beautiful and involved so I’m grateful for that. Also getting to explore Hogwarts as “my own” experience. However like many of the reviews mention the energy system is a cash grab and honestly takes almost all of the fun out of the game. I’ll be finishing out of principal and my obsession with HP, but that’s the only reason why. I’m only on year two and it takes all of my energy to do half a lesson, then you wait almost two hours for it to refill. I wouldn’t mind waiting a day if I could actually play for an hour or so straight. Also the game could’ve had more creativity with the story line and maybe extracurricular activities. Instead you just click to accomplish things, do classroom time not learning to unlock lessons, and basically do whatever the game wants you to do. Most of the choices given to you only affect what rewards you get but not the storyline or what you do, and now in Year 2 I cant even pick most of the choices because my levels aren’t adequate. That is pretty irritating since the game is so structured. The only real change you can make is in your friend choice and the game gives you 3 and lets you focus more on certain ones so it doesn’t matter much. Most of the creativity and choosing is early on then it levels out and you just click and wait and click and wait. I hope a better, updated game from the HP universe comes out soon. This was a disappointment

Great interactive experience as a part of Hogwarts. Has great animation, spells and visuals. Plus mini games that are really fun like the dueling club. The only thing is to make the energy instead of every 4 minutes but every one minute
I love it, just a few things tough
by mattjax11 on 2021/06/14 19:21
So, I just found out not only this game but Harry Potter exsited just two mounts ago and I have been obsessed with both. There is just two or 3 things that I don’t like about it. First, the energy. Yes I get that it takes energy to brew a potion 🧪, But what I don’t Get is that it takes 4 minutes to Get 1 thing of energy If you know what I mean. And yes this technique would work If it took 1-2 things of energy for everything but it can take from 3 to up to 10. Senocond, LET ME CHANGE MY HOUSE

I like this game but the loading screen takes a very long time. Even when there’s an error it starts over and the time starts over. It is very annoying watching it load over again please fix it.
It’s a good game but there is one huge problem
by pusheenhannah on 2021/06/14 17:38
So I downloaded this game because I am a huge Harry Potter fan. The story was really interesting but the energy is such an issue. It’s like you get to do very few things because the activities need so much energy. Basically you get to do very few things and then wait until the next day to get all your energy back and do more things. I deleted this game and haven’t downloaded back because of this issue.
Amazing

Chiara has one of the hardest fights from what I have played so far
by Karma 0128 on 2021/06/14 14:12
If you only have One attack spell, a defense potion and you have the spell Flipendo and Rictusempra You can’t win. Every time I die to the bleed effect and I am not putting more money into this game. I don’t have enough coins to even fight her again and I lost over 600 trying to beat her. So far I haven’t had any other problems. But I’m telling you now. If you don’t have a lot of money and you are trying to get more tries. Don’t do it. It’s not worth it. I spent 3 days working on this stupid quest and now hit a road block that I can’t beat! Everyone else I have seen fighting this had every spell unlocked and was able to win without loosing much health. They are overpowered and have spells you would get near 5th year I think. Btw this is a 2 year quest so I am a little mad here. If things get worse I will lower my star review here. Seems better to watch people play the game then spend your own money trying to beat it tbh.
Needs Improvement
by Disgruntled Slytherin on 2021/06/14 12:42
Nice-looking game with an interesting story and good dialogue, but the flawed energy system makes playing it tedious and even feel like a chore. Either the energy gauge needs to have a higher base capacity (40-50 at least), or energy needs to refill faster (2:30 minutes instead of 4:00)
Change your game pls
by hi vcb v on 2021/06/14 06:10
Great but way to time consuming the energy thing is just too much time it’s good if your a patient Pearson but it’s just really annoying!

Never works
by Ben Barton on 2021/06/14 01:51
I used to love this game but then all of a sudden I would get this error message saying it can’t connect even on a very strong WiFi connection. I reached out to the developers and all they gave me was some lame troubleshooting steps like turn off my phone, clear temp files and cache etc. and nothing works, I tell them this and they still send me the same cookie cutter messages telling me to do the exact same thing. Proof that they do not read their emails nor do they care enough to fix whatever issue that keeps me from playing the game
The game is in the process of becoming unplayable

Game problems
by hermione-lovegood5678 on 2021/06/14 00:36
I LOVED this game so much when I was playing it. I couldn’t put it down. I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan so this game was great for me. However, the game just stopped working for me. I’ve tried deleting it and downloading it again but nothing worked. Every time I open it up, it brings me to Charms class. Then, 5 seconds later, it kicked me out of the game. I have checked my internet multiple times and it always says I’m connected. This isn’t just my internet, I’ve logged in at other places and it still kicks me out. Please help me, I love this game and just want to play it again😀.
It’s a good game.
by isla the alicorn on 2021/06/13 22:25
Let me start out by saying that I am very satisfied with the game however when I got to year three it made me restart the whole game! I had to make a new character and choose a new name and a new house. It was kind off upsetting. Otherwise it is a very nice game and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Harry Potter. Oh and one last thing I think that the energy time should be a lot lower or that you should get more energy for waiting that long cause right now you have to wait four minutes for one energy and a full energy when you start the game is like twenty. Bye
I love this game
by idk a player on 2021/06/13 21:08
I have only been playing for 5 minutes and I already can’t put my phone down, but my name is Rowen so things get kind of confusing
Keeps crashing
by copperrider15 on 2021/06/13 20:53
I used to play this game on my old phone. I recently wanted to download again on my iPad. For some reason the app keeps saying “can’t connect to server”. I’ve deleted and installed multiple times and restart the iPad and can not get past this problem. I actually love the game, can anyone find a solution to this?
Game is great. The energy is not.
by Keto Thor on 2021/06/13 19:21
Love the game. The story, customization, my Ravenclaw lineage. I dislike the energy requirements. I’d like to play more often but having to sit around for an hour or a day is a shame. Hopefully Hogwarts on console will be much better.
So awesome
by bjbvn on 2021/06/13 19:14
I started picking out what my avatar looks like and I loved what it looks like and then you got to pick your name and get all of your books and a wand and I really loved it because it actually makes you feel like you’re in hogwart’s!

Harry Potter Game
by Anomonys Writer who cant spell on 2021/06/13 04:41
I love this game but there is something that I don’t like. I just started it and one of the quests says I have to wait 1 hour 30 and I am not that patient. Besides that I love the game it has good graphics, also am I able to meet Harry Potter?
Hogwarts Mystery
by shvgs on 2021/06/12 23:19
Honestly, I enjoyed the game but one of the biggest cons about the game is energy. You don’t get much and usually anything you do requires more than you have. Along side of that, if you run out of energy during a class or other mini game, it gives you 1 per 4 minutes. I find that a little stupid, I think it should give more than 1 if your waiting for 4 minutes with a timer on the mini game. Other than that, I did enjoy the game I’d recommend it for the Harry Potter fans. But when participating in one of those mini games make sure to press the 8hr choice for the timer so you have enough time to get energy.
Problems
by oceanpearl209 on 2021/06/12 19:23
No.1: NO PENALTIES AT ALL!!! No.2: Everything’s super expensive! No.3: No money bought things! Only wizard money No.4: No energy! It doesn’t make it more fun and challenging, it just makes it more frustrating Thank you
Shame on the developers!
by Gamer3475 on 2021/06/12 16:10
Edit June 2021: I recently came back to this game thinking maybe they made it a little more playable but it’s really just the same. You spend most of your time waiting for your energy to refill. Then you get to play for a couple of minutes until the energy runs out again. And if you aren’t waiting for your energy to refill, you are waiting for a timer to run out before you can do the next quest! This game teaches you extreme patience and I don’t mean that as a compliment! But wait, the game will let you progress if you just purchase diamonds with your real money! It’s pretty pathetic that a game developer would use the popularity of Harry Potter to fleece fans out of their hard earned money. This game is really just a scam to get you to transfer your money directly to the developers. You either have to be the most patient person one the planet or rich to enjoy this game. Shame on the developers! Original review: This game could be fun. I don’t know. Haven’t been able to play for more then 5 minutes at a time. You do one action and run out of energy. Then you have to wait several hours for the energy to regenerate. Makes the game play super choppy. Game devs are obviously trying to milk Potter fans dry of our money. This is not my idea of a fun game. Could be WITHOUT the ridiculous energy system. Disappointing!

So slow
by KariElidaxx on 2021/06/12 01:40
Honestly, it’s an amazing game, me and my friends are obsessed with it. However, it is BEYOND slow. The load up screen takes absolutely forever and you need such a strong connection. I understand it’s a lot to load- but even games such as Call of Duty mobile (that also have an insane amount of data) are way faster.
AWSOME GAME!!!!!!

HARRY POTTER LOVERS THIS IS YOUR GAME
by Sushidog012 on 2021/06/12 00:10
IM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH HARRY POTTER AND THIS GAME! It’s literally Harry Potter but u as Harry. The only flaw is it doesn’t let u make ur name one of the Harry Potter characters I typed in Hermione Granger, Cho Chang, Ginny Weasley, and Luna Lovegood but it ain’t work.I had to make my name Moaning Myrtle (lol) that’s it I guess.
Money and time pit
by Miaeap on 2021/06/11 21:55
Tired of spending a fortune to win an adventure then get timed out because you don’t have enough attributes too beat a dragon. Was enjoying the game. but, it’s to stressful now - I can’t enjoy it knowing I’ll always be a loser because I have a job and can’t spend enough time or money, playing the game to get enough attributes - pets - for magical creatures to get any where.

by mogn34! on 2021/06/11 21:01
Hi! I love this game it is so fun! I feel like I am actually in hogwarts and it is just amazing! The only problem is that there is ads and you have to wait a long time to do some things. But anyways I love it! I am only a first year right now close to being a second year. The cool thing is about the game it is like your life. Like you can call in love and date. You can duel actual people and stuff like so cool! 😱 Also you can actually play quittich! My sister has the game and she is a third year and she goes to hogsmade and plays quittich. All I can say is that this game is so great and so fun I love it. You should totally get it!!😁😁😁 Harry Potter Hogwarts mystery is so fun I really enjoy 😊 it!! Get it today!!
All In All
by Tillie B. on 2021/06/11 18:15
I love Harry Potter, and love that this game isn’t in the golden trio era! There are little bits of the game that are frustrating though, such as when you get a task it doesn’t let you do it for HOURS there is a literal count down. But if you don’t want to wait you can pay diamonds but those are hard to get. Not to mention how expensive things are in the shop and I have to pay to get my avitar glasses. But it has great quality and if you can deal with these problems it is a great game)
I’M SO OBSESSED!
by Nymph Tonkss on 2021/06/11 16:26

If you like Club Penguin, try it out. It’s free.

No help
by Delaphiano on 2021/06/11 05:48
I have asked three times for them to give me back my fifth year back . I had up to the spider and I think I bough one and I had all the Close you can buy with the money you get from the game and I use a lot of my Diamond to get close and spend a lot of money into the game to get farther into the game faster. Now they are making me start from the beginning when I have put a lot of money into the game . I have given them my email so they can contact me still have not received my game back. I really loved the game until now. Sad that they don’t care to help me get my game back. I hope they don’t treat any one else like l am being treated. Please read this and decide if you want this game for you or your children if you do I hope they treat you better I have even been very nice about this hole thing and still been nice writing this on 06 -10-2021
Love this game buuut
by Harrylover9/34 on 2021/06/11 03:48
I love this game it’s so sick I’ve always loved Harry Potter and everything having to do with it, it’s my childhood. And this game is so freaking cool to keep that Harry potter nostalgia going. I play this pretty much everyday. I just redownloaded a couple days ago. And I remember why I deleted it in the first place. I deleted it because of the thing everyone is noticing. The energy. And the time it takes for you to wait till you can go onto the next mission/part of the story. I wanna play this game till I finish all of the years and I wanna see it through and see all of the things the game has for us. And I understand you can bypass the time it takes with gems and that’s a way for you guys to make money on the app, and the same thing kind of with the energy counter. But. It’s very very frustrating. It’s gonna take me ages to complete the game with the timer and the energy situation so I might lose the fun I have with it. Anyways. If you were to fix anything. I recommend either slowing down the energy timer to two minutes per one energy instead of four. Or four for three or more. And for the timer till the edit part of the story. I say either completely get rid of that terrible mechanic. Or slow it down. Or even make the gems to unlock it fast even cheaper. Please please try to do this. The game will be so much better!

Never loads
by Antisocial_Deviant on 2021/06/10 23:20
I used to have this game when it was first released and I LOVED IT! Of course my interest died off a bit (as it tends to do with phone games) and I deleted it. I got a new phone recently and decided to try this game again, but no matter what the game never loads anything once I reach where I have to create my own character. It’s all blank/none of the options or my character load. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the game multiple times and the issue never goes away. Not a WiFi issues (I’ve tried on multiple reliable sources), and not a phone/system problem (I’ve got the iPhone 12 Pro). I’m really disappointed. Is there anything I can do to try and fix this or is this a bug that can be fixed?
I love the game ❤️💜💚🖤💝💕💞💓
by andndnnf on 2021/06/10 22:13
The app is very good I love it becuase you get to do the same stuff that you get to see I. The real movie which is really cool 😎 so I think I will enjoy how much further I get to get into this game when it’s more better but you should leave the in app purchases alone for the games please that would be really helpful to some people

by Lexxisgamer123 on 2021/06/10 18:11
I love the game, since being a Harry Potter fan I think we all adore the characters the details and everything etc. But this game I feel like has many things that need to be fix (in my OWN opinion) for instance: I feel like the Energy things are a bit crazy and this much because you have to wait for 4 minutes to get and one and watch an add which doesn’t do any good in the action. And the things you spend your energy on is a bit to much. I mean we don’t have the time sometimes to wait because you know. And I feel like this is something big that NEEDS to be worked on. I feel like if you don’t want to do that quest and the moments you have to wait to finish it I think that’s a bit you know ridiculous because we may be sick of waiting to finish and want to try something different and do a different quest. And I feel like you should be able to date or go in to any classroom at any level because it’s a lot of work and money. But over all I love the game! ❤️❤️
Meh.

Just one problem
by Narwhall83 on 2021/06/10 12:57
I love the gameplay, storyline, and characters, but there’s just one kinda big problem-energy. Not only do you start with 25 max energy and most classes need way more than that to complete, but the energy takes way to long to regenerate. Though the paintings and such give energy, it doesn’t at all suffice. Even tho there are no ads you’re forced to watch in the game, I end up watching several ads in a row to get energy to complete a class.
Great game! One thing though
by Cookiedog1376 on 2021/06/10 05:03
This game is AWESOME! The one thing I say is be able to change ur avatars house after re-dowloading it. I got frustrated because I thought that is what happened when I picked the wrong house on a different device. But I Gryffindor on this device and proud to!!
please fix the energy system
by $HABANK on 2021/06/10 00:33
i just really think it’s too long
Fine. (Read for full rundown of problems with this game)
by squishy judger on 2021/06/10 00:22
(No spoiler alerts here) This app overall has a nice concept and developing storyline, currently I am on year 2 so I can't give you what i truly think of the entire game just yet, reguardless I will write based on what I have done so far. Overall yes there are energy issues and yeah it is annoying, that's been said already in other comments therefor I do not feel the need to write it here.. but I will say in year two you start to HAVE to do "study lessons" in order to do the actual lesson, these are pointless. You don't learn anything, we only really repeat the previous lesson for the study lesson I am doing currently. It's just a way for you to burn energy and buy more gems to get energy. Developers should be ashamed for the amount of things they practically FORCE people to pay them or you have to wait a couple hours. But the real problem To me is the status (Empathy, Knowledge, and courage) the status itself is fine, but whenever you get to a part such as a duel and it "recommends" (really you can't win without having OVER those statuses) it takes quite a long time, especially if you already bought all the items having what you need or can not afford them. (Not to mention the people who don't realize you lose and keep spending their 120 coins, I did that sadly) Really, this game gives off a pay, or wait kind of vibe, because if you don't pay for the coins or pay for the gems (I don't think anyone can save up enough gems within a month for the amount their charging) you just can't move forward. I was stuck at this first duel for at least 3 weeks, until I finally saved enough to buy one stinkin peice of clothing, even then I didn't have enough. So this is an issue especially if you are stuck. Another thing is the "lock time" you pay a freakishly amount of gems (again the money 💵) or wait 12 hours just to unlock the next chapter? seems to me like you don't want people to completely finish your game because based on what I read in other comments there's really nothing to do after year 7. This is probably because you thought no one would finish your game. Fix these issues and you got yourself a 5 star game, even with these issues it's still a semi decent game, wouldn't say I would 100% recommend to people who don't have patience, but overall it's a fine game, a little disappointing. UPDATE: Literally I took a study session i had FULL energy and after barley reaching ONE STAR I got no energy left!! It takes me FIVE HOURS to complete a 5 stars needed quest because it takes over DOUBLE my energy. Based on the reviews I'm not the only people with this issue occurring! 😢 You have lost so many people due to the energy issue. Why not fix it? -Hope this helps you to decide about the app.
Um…
by nerdgirl86 on 2021/06/09 23:59

Love it! but ....
by JJW😜😁🤓 on 2021/06/09 19:14
So I have had this game for like a week or two now and it’s awesome, the graphics are great and it’s really fun and interesting and this game is perfect for Harry Potter/ witchCraft and Wizardry but the energy goes down to fast and to where I can hardly complete a class or task and it gets annoying and kinda ruins the fun so I ask to make is so you don’t run out of energy after doing a single class or task this will make the game so much more fun and I guarantee that you will have more people playing. Thanks for the great game, hope you guys keep working on it !!😋
It’s a amazing game
by allamsiw on 2021/06/09 18:09

Harry Potter 💕
by yvng.kayy on 2021/06/09 17:41
I love this game it’s so much fun but there are some issues I think that need to b worked on, first one is that we barely hold energy and it’s super hard to get more unless you wait long enough or if you buy it ! I think it should b easier to get energy so we as Harry Potter fans can play longer second the note books are also hard to get if there was an easier way to get some of those as well that would b wonderful ! Last is the event it’s hard to do the events when ur dueling takes forever to let you duel I feel that it should depend on how many time u lose a duel is how long u wait for the next but if u keep winning then u should b able to keep dueling not spend 55 gems to duel again ! But I love the game it’s one of my favorite and it will always b a five star game to me! 💕💕💕
Disappointed in the development team and service
by rob07vet on 2021/06/09 17:27
Don’t get me wrong I like playing this game as it is one of my top games to play, my issue is with the developers and the customer service representatives. When one earns a reward by completing a task that is assigned, one should receive said reward, especially energy which is required to complete the tasks. I noticed I was not receiving all the energy I was earning from completing the daily tasks, so I reached out to the support team. I was notified that it was designed that way and even though I earned the energy I would not receive it because my energy meter was full. They also said the only energy that goes above the meter would be purchased energy and the overall daily planner task completion energy, pet energy and friendship level completion energy. Three that they mentioned involve completing a task to earn the energy and the other tasks you have to purchase. So if completing tasks to get this energy while having a full meter allows the meter to go above what is allowed why not all the energy you earned from completing any task that they assign to you. I pointed out this inconsistency and illogical reasoning behind their decision to not allow all types of earned energy to go above the meter. After all you earned it and it’s not like they allow you not to save it for later when your meter is low or out when you need it.

by I don't know about you on 2021/06/09 02:39
You need many types of books to buy things like creatures in this game. GOOD LUCK, YOU NEVER CAN GET THEM. You need creatures in this game. GOOD LUCK, THEY COST LOTS OF BOOKS. so what’s the solution? YOU, OR YOUR CHILD HAS TO SPEND LOTS OF REAL MONEY $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. BAD GAME DESIGNERS = BAD GAME BALANCE. DON’T DOWNLOAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
great game!
by Foxmoon9❤️ on 2021/06/08 22:14
I love this game! It’s so great! That being said, it doesn’t have no downsides. The ‘micro’ transactions are more like mega transactions. I get you have to make money, but seriously? This a ridiculous amount of money for a game! And the fact we have to spend money for Magical Milestones! I hate that! Still, if you don’t need the extra ruffles on a dress, then it’s still a good game. I do have some suggestions! Could you make Chiara available in the First Date, Celestial Ball, and Valentines Day sidequests? I don’t know if you already did this, but I am dating her in the new Romance feature and want to be able to do those sidequests with her. I also want some more hair options- like wavy, a kind of Korra bob (get someone who’s seen S4 of Legend Of Korra), and more options for wearing hair up. I want my MC to have a long wavy high ponytail, but that’s not available! Also, I’d like more unnatural hair colors. That’s all! Thanks devs! I’m back!!! Ok, so here’s an idea: being able to have normal activities. They don’t reward energy or anything, just something to pass the time. I think this would be good for when my activity things (like Quidditch and Gobstones) are on ‘cooldown’ and I have to wait for my energy to refill. Some ideas for the normal activities: -Climbing a tree -After school activities -Practicing magic -Writing in a diary -Just hanging out with your girl/boyfriend in the game (like Chiara or Barnaby)
Just Add this...
by game girl!❤️💕🌈🌌 on 2021/06/08 21:38
I have always loved Harry Potter! I have read all the books. And watch the movies constantly, I just wish they would add the dress with Roses and bun hairstyle they put in the add. Plus they should make it more dramatic. We want drama, love! Also I think they should update the energy thing, it gets annoying sometimes. Just want you to know Thank you. Please make these changes! -Harry Potter fan
No so far
by TWill391 on 2021/06/08 21:25
I LOVE Harry Potter I got this game yesterday I loved it at first but today in in the middle of a quest it what’s me to do something for 100 coins and I have 54. And I don’t buy thing on apps so that made me so mad! Now I need to delete this app and start all over agin! When In 2 days I made it super far
So far so good
by Pandihahahaha on 2021/06/08 20:05
It’s a good game and makes sure it sets itself before canon
Aweful
by hi •~• on 2021/06/08 19:47
This game is awful don’t buy it it’s just a waste of your time
Why
by 💜🏳️‍🌈 on 2021/06/08 15:31
I would give you five stars if I don’t keep getting glitched out if the game. It’s getting to the point where I can’t get in the game. Thank you for your time and happy pride month
I really do enjoy it
by MimitheNugg on 2021/06/08 13:39
I really like the game, but it crashes CONSTANTLY. An example, right now it won’t even let me in the app. I’m on the loading screen, and then after the green bar loads, the screen goes black and goes to my phone screen, and it’s been like that since yesterday. Also, whenever I try to create books, watch memories, or sometimes, do simple tasks, it kicks me out and I have to run the game again. Apart from that though, the game play that I have played, the game is very lovely and fun! I just hope the glitching, and crashing weren’t there.😕
BE MORE INCLUSIVE
by bella_12345687 on 2021/06/08 13:35
Don’t get me wrong I like the game a lot but as someone who is non binary I don’t get many options. I can only pick better witch and wizard plus there are no androgynous hair or clothes. Plus on most tasks make you wait 7 hours unless you spend 100 gems but they are pretty hard to get :(
So completely frustrated. Beyond disappointed.
by gamergirl3590 on 2021/06/08 10:55
I so beyond frustrated with this game. The concept and gameplay is so fun but I literally can do anything in this game without waiting 2 hrs. in between the 5 min spurts of actual gameplay. This could have been something beautiful, and yet so beyond disappointing.
Why change it?
by Smilingts on 2021/06/08 06:09
I’ve been playing this game for three years. At points it could be slow going but it’s not a finish it in a day kind of game. My only complaint has been collecting books, it could take weeks to get enough to get a creature. Now you have added paper to make a book, giving out fewer books and taking longer to save paper. Full Marks use to be fun to strategize. Now by changing diamonds to coin and increasing items to buy you have taken away opportunity to collect books and made it frustrating to strategize a win. Anyone can take it if they have a few coin and you have to play constantly to keep up with the pack. I don’t like the new changes. I will give it a chance but I’m seriously thinking of ending my game.
Very good game just needs a few things fixed
by personmanman on 2021/06/08 05:40
I love this game. It is very fun to play on my free time and I would play it all day if I could. There’s one thing stopping me though, the energy. I end up only being able to play for about 5-10 minutes because just one class will go through a full amount of energy, and then you have to wait almost 2 hours for another full amount, so the only thing you can do is play with the animals which gets boring after a while. Also they are very hard to get too, I don’t even know how to get the notebooks other than completing daily quests, which are daily so… I don’t even have a single silver one, so maybe make those a little easier to get, or explain how to get them or something. Also pets are far to expensive, especially because there are little to no ways to get diamonds, which I know is probably on purpose, but the ad makes it seem easy to get them, I haven’t even been able to afford one. This game is overall very fun, with just a few things like the energy easily depleting, or the animals and pets being way to hard to get both of these reasons causing me to forget about the game often and forgetting the plot, but either way, great game!!
To make the game better
by avrvavavmv on 2021/06/08 02:51
This game would be way better with slightly longer times on mini adventures.
Too long of a wait for energy
by Jake schlobohm on 2021/06/08 02:47
When you have to get energy you should have to wait half a min but 4 MINUTES!? No. It takes too long to get energy.Besides that the game is awesome and is the best hp game besides that one flaw. So Please fix this and please see that 4 minutes is too long
It’s a great game
by MoonStar91 on 2021/06/08 02:08
I would like more colors for hair but I like the game
Erased everything
by katharine alley on 2021/06/08 01:37
I have been playing this since about November 2020. I was in year 4 I believe and after a bit of a break I came back and everything was gone and it wanted me to create a whole new avatar and start from day one. I deleted whole app. I’ve spent a good amount of money through out and spent a lot of time with all the side challenges. So disappointed
Awesome, read until the end I have request
by Animal whisper!🐩 on 2021/06/08 00:53
This is an awesome game, I feel like I’m at Hogwarts and it’s really fun. It’s very realistic and very easy to imagine myself in a Harry Potter movie. I have a request, and it’s not about the game, can you please make a game dedicated to magical creatures. I just love the idea of standing in an office and looking around at hundreds of magical animals. I know it’s a lot to ask and it probably won’t happen but there’s no harm in trying do if you could that would be amazing if you did make a game about that.
Getting better
by !!!12 on 2021/06/07 23:33
This game is getting better sense i bought it but i cant go five seconds without it kicking me off. Plz help me or fix.
Energy bust
by Cywofh:92$fkdhrb on 2021/06/07 22:56
I love the game but it’s very irritating having to wait for energy
It’s really good but,
by THE HARRY POTTER UNICORN on 2021/06/07 22:28
So overall this app is a great game for all potterheads but I don’t know if it’s just me that has this problem, but every time I try to go to the great hall to end year 1 it just loads for a really long time and then crashes. Otherwise, no problems!
This new update messed something up
by happyjuice5 on 2021/06/07 21:00
I don’t know what’s going on with this new update but I can’t access anything on the right side of the screen except the events tab. I can’t use the power gift, a gift box or the watch afforded gems feature.
Good but couldn’t finish Year 1
by YOU MATTER ❤️❤️❤️ on 2021/06/07 20:28
This is an amazing game. I agree with the other comment that says it’s a good game but they couldn’t finish the beginning of year two. Except for me it’s.... worse? So I was so excited because Ravenclaw (my house) has won in my first year in the game. But every time I try to go to the end of year feast, my game crashes. No matter how many times I restart my game or even the entire phone, I am sent back to the home screen. But then it got worse. Today, it took me straight to the feast, and I was so happy! But it immediately froze and then crashed. Also the energy thing is annoying. Maybe you get THREE every four mins instead of just. One. Please fix, this is my first review, so obviously this game is important enough that I would write a review. Thank you so much for this great game! Because I have only wrote complaints so far I should let you know this is one of my favorite games. If you are considering getting it, you DEFINITELY SHOULD!! You can customize so much on your avatar and get pets too! You can join different clubs aside from your house. You can make choices too as to how you respond to things! I love this game, hope I’m not boring you to death with this intensely loooong review!!! Edit: I never could get to the feast and deleted the app. I will redownload but if I finally get to the feast again and still doesn’t work, I will have to lower rating to two stars. I apologize but this bug is impossible to overlook. Best wishes to the developer; if you guys fix this, total ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
🖤
by *-*maddy*-* on 2021/06/07 20:27
I like this game a lot. The quests are doable, you also are also able to customize a decent amount. Things cost a lot especially for your dorm but you barely go in there or at least I haven’t needed to yet. Potions class is great except for one person who you will learn later on. They tend to win over the teachers trust which makes your character seem unreliable and untruthful. Overall a great game even if you aren’t huge into harry potter(like me). It’s amazing and fun to learn potions and spells, learn how to ride a broom, make new friends etc. Love it and recommend you at least giving it a try. Play do a bit and try it out!<3
Bad
by lillylillyash on 2021/06/07 19:53
This game is bad and boring I deleted it not a lot of timeline boring and as a fan of Harry Potter this is a bad timeline I have watched every Harry Potter and this time line is not a good one....
All great but one thing.
by Andjdhakakdbdjalbx on 2021/06/07 17:05
The game is amazing. Like playing your own Hogwarts adventure! Only huge problem I have is the wait times on things. I wouldn’t mind but it gets ridiculously long and you can only do like one mission a day. Also using energy is a hassle unless you spend real money. Please please reduce the long wait times and this will be almost a perfect game!
Ehhh……
by Mia_chanpion on 2021/06/07 15:21
Ok so first of all this game lags you out WAY to much and when it lags you out it will delete stuff that you got. I ONE TIME got to get 200 energy wow great yeah it lagged me out and guess who lost it all, me. Now I’ve already heard complains a lot and I am seriously with them when I say how do you supposed to find out how you change your house, I understand to change your house you have to go to settings and press new game but people don’t do that they just delete it like seriously dude. Next of all it takes away too long to get energy four minutes just to get one piece of energy! really? in most events or tasks only give you an hour to complete that’s not enough time. I know if you level up they’ll give you more energy the chance of you leveling up is extremely rare. And my next complaints the events, the limited time special events they won’t appear half the time and there are some really good ones I want to try out the never appeared for me. and some of the special event should even have to be an event they should be part of your task like becoming Animagist, Petronas those should just be part of your task you should have to do a special event for those. Also the meet a friend I don’t like it takes away courage empathy or smarts for some thing when you get the correct answer it’s almost impossible to get all three gems because it takes away stuff from you. And really this game doesn’t really save well I understand if you delete it it just pops right back where you were but it’s still annoying. No I admit the story is sort of good but seriously can you throw in a bad Gryffindor something wouldn’t kill you.
Love it!
by Rabbits rock! on 2021/06/07 13:35
I love this game but I have found an issue. I am on my third year and I am doing the animagus adventure but playing gobstones with Talbot is almost impossible now. Plz respond to me. This event ends in 4 days and 4 mins. Thank you!
I love this game
by isiekel on 2021/06/07 04:17
I love this game because u can do lots of stuff like practice spells, pick your house and lots more. Harry Potter is my favorite book and movie. Harry Potter is the best thing in the whole world.
Energy
by AlexandreaPaige on 2021/06/07 03:49
I really wish y’all can figure out a way for us to get more energy. I feel like I can hardly do anything because you don’t get a lot of energy to do anything. I hate that I can’t get into the game because I do one lesson & all my energy is gone. I really love Harry Potter. I just added the game back recently & now I realize why I deleted it in the first place because you really can’t enjoy the game because your energy runs out so early.
Good but some glitches
by 23 allergens on 2021/06/07 02:18
This is an ok game but not too thrilling. It’s fun but there is 1 huge flaw . I did the math and found out that in 100 minutes your bar fills up completely. 100 MINUTES!!!!!! I mean is it worth? In 1 first year charms class I used up 200 energy pieces. Also I wanted to know how to convince Ben Copper to join you to search for the cursed vaults. I tried so many times I ended up spending 700 coins on it and still can’t beat it. 1 last thing, when I started I made myself a hufflepuff and later changed it to Slythyrin. Now I want to change it again and I’m stuck a slythyrin. Also when I went to the great hall to try and convince Ben to come with me, every time I click on the button that takes me back to the corridor, ut loads for about 30 seconds then takes me back to the home screen of my phone. Thanks for your time, Emma
Cool

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! 🤗
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.
It’s great until...
by Cooper1357902468 on 2021/01/12 00:41
This game is very fun for Harry Potter lovers or people who are interested in witchcraft and wizardry. I have had this game for a while and enjoy it thoroughly, but there are some things that I think would be better if changed. First off, the energy. It makes sense that you need energy to complete tasks, but what doesn’t make sense is how long it takes. It takes 4 minutes to get one energy, which doesn’t do much, in the case that you need 3-5 energy for most tasks. I think that it would be better 4 minutes for 3 energy or something like that, or they could have it 2 minutes for 1 energy,if that makes any sense. The second thing that I think should be changed is redownloading it. I got the game and enjoyed the game for a while, then stopped playing it, due to the issue previously discussed. I was going through apps that I haven’t played in a while and deleted this app. I later got it back because I kept seeing ads for it and decided to try it again. I let the game load up, and it automatically resumed where I was previously. I wish that it would restart your game, rather then resuming it. My reason why is because I forgot what was happening in the game, so I wanted to see, but I couldn’t. That was quite confusing. I also had chosen the wrong house previously and tried to do it again, but because of this issue, my house choice was permanent. Also, if you chose the wrong action, you can’t go back and change it.
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.
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!
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.
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.
it’s ok
by iTunes essary on 2020/12/15 00:47
I recently re-downloaded the game after not playing it for a while. It is a fun game, I will say. But I only have a few problems with it. One is the amount of advertising it has in it’s own game. You have to pay for “Energy Orbs” or wait for like 2 hours. I usually don’t mind waiting, but the lessons in the game, for example, Charms class, only have a two hour limit, which means that you have two hours to finish the lesson, or you have to start over. Most of the lessons also require more Orbs than you start out with as well, which annoys me. Another problem I have is with the limits on the lessons, as I said before. They don’t give you enough time to completely refill your Orbs, making you HAVE to pay if you want to get “5 stars” on the lesson. Recently, since it’s Christmas time, I was invited to the Weasley’s for the holidays, and in order to get to the Weasley’s, you have to ask professors what their traditions are, ( Snape’s is enjoying a nice quiet snowfall on Christmas Day ) and then you have to learn spells and stuff to make gifts, and I knew it was going to take me a while, which is fine, but little did I know there was also a time limit on this one! It only gives you about two days, and if you don’t finish in those days, you just can’t go. And now I’m sad because I don’t get to see Fred and George :( I will say the game would be fun if you were willing to pay 30$ every time you wanted more Orbs to play. Thanks for reading, I usually never write reviews lol.
Great game! 💯 would recommend.

This game is super fun, the graphics are great, and the story is engaging. I love the characters and all the little details. If you are a Harry Potter fan, you will love this!! It’s perfect and is a truly magical game. (The rest of this review is a few suggestions for the creators of the game and contains a spoiler for year two of the game.) A few thing that you (as in the creators of the game) may want to consider is making people’s whereabouts match with the storyline. For example, when Ben is missing for a awhile he still appeared in the common room before I found him. Also, when Rowan got injured and was in the hospital wing she still appeared in potions class with me. Also, having more to interact with would be super fun! Like how certain objects can give you extra energy when you tap on them. I’m not asking for more object to give energy, but making all the paintings move or do something when you touch them and having the people around have short lines that they say when you touch them would add even more magic to the game. These aren’t problems, but adding those little things will really increase the experience. Also, I think you should think of more stories we can play though so that we can play this game again and again with different stories. Just a suggestion! Overall, well done! I love this game!! You guys did a great job!!
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.
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
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.
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 ❤️😍
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!
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.
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.
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! 👍😂
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.
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!
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!
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.
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
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.
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!!
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.
It's pretty good...
by v1ctor1aa on 2020/12/15 04:46
So honestly I've never really been a big Harry Potter fan but this game came up in an Ad for another game I was playing on my phone and I decided to download it. The game is actually quite entertaining and fun for the most part but some things did come to my attention. At first, they give you enough energy to do certain tasks, and I never really paid attention to it until I realized that you had to wait four minutes to recover *just one* ball of energy. Normally for a whole lesson you need about 35-45 balls of energy in order to get through the whole thing. And waiting over an hour for the energy to fill back up, just so it can reach its limit of 26 is pretty annoying. I even went as far as to spend my money and buy a bundle pack that came with gems, energy, and coins and it's helped a lot. But I do wish it was more accessible and faster to regain those balls of energy or if there were certain things you could do in order to get them. Another thing is the tasks, I like how interactive the game is but it's bothersome to have to wait over four hours just to have a conversation with someone or move onto the next task in the game. And then if you did want to rush it, and use your gems, it's over-the-top expensive for it too! I guess my only complaint is the wait times for both the tasks and energy. Other than that the game is really fun and entertaining! ❤️
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

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.
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.
It’s okay but...

You will not be able to win an event, no matter how much you live on the game and the best clothing and dorm items are only available through the events. It is the same with the special events where you get new spells too, making it impossible to proceed and win without spending money, and a lot of it too. The jewels are ridiculously priced, otherwise I would have spent real money. Just not attached to my character at all since they can never win. I’m not a loser and neither is any “avatar” that I play as. Would like to see that fixed. They put out a survey and after getting feedback just added more clothes (that I’m not interested in personally) and left everything else. This game could be SO good if they just listened better to suggestions. I literally lived on this game for an event (waking up at night even) to make sure I utilized my energy to the fullest and was STILL not able to finish the event and lost out on making a werewolf friend. This is an example of ONE of the many events that I have done this with. Was able to become an animagus only because I had hundreds of gems saved up. It was also the first time they did an event like that, so of course, the following events they made impossible in order to promote the purchasing and spending of jewels/ gems.. I like the matching game so much more and I play that multiple times a day and feel accomplished while still getting my Harry Potter fix ;) Again, could be so much better.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Limited Time On Those “Quests”: Mainly Animagus
by cwg64 on 2021/02/17 22:46
So I have loved the game for a very long time now, playing it and of course having fun. Sometimes those “quest” things pop up (Limited things like animagus) and I do some of it and then it runs out of time which means I have just wasted a few things on it which is not really that fair so I just brush it off. Now ever since I first saw that Become An Animagus thing I have always wanted to do it and I vowed to myself that I won’t just do a few things on it, I would try to do everything. So I did, I did try everything, but I ended up wasting ALL GEMS AND ALL COINS, for nothing. And as of now I have only a few minutes left of it and I am not even able to do the step I’m already on BECAUSE OF ENERGY. So I am now crying because of this, because I have wanted to become an Animagus in this game for such a lot time and now it’s all for nothing. My point in this review is you need to make these “quests” longer either that or make it in game time, for example: You open the game and your in the middle of one of those quests and the time limit on the quest is the same but right where you last played the game, so what I’m saying here is that they should be like when you play it the time goes down, but when you don’t play it, the time stays the same. I hope this review changes anything because this is most likely happening to others.
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
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...
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.
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.
Poor Gameplay mechanics and audio.
by BradAppReviews on 2020/08/21 02:26
Mechanics- The game is very slow to progress. A very sit around and wait after playing for like 10 minutes type game. You get a very low amount of energy to play with and the recharge rate is 1 energy every four minutes. In between story missions are like little side quests where you go to charms class and such and often you will go to the same class several times and every new charm or similar type class is the same. Just a very poor linear design choice. You are able to duel as well which is a very simple encounter of a few types of engagements and attack styles. After you duel there’s about a 7 hour wait time before you can do it again. When you run out of energy you should just wait it out because buying an energy bar fill, is pretty expensive as well as in game currency. The audio - there is little to none audible character dialogue which in a sense is I guess understandable do to the fact that they couldn’t really get the original actors to voice act. But in place of that is your typical verbal noises such as gasps, awes, grunts, ect. Some of the characters are also portrayed a little differently then in the films such as personality and things. Filch is a lot “meaner” and is portrayed as more involved then the series had him. Hagrid talks pretty weird. Overall it’s just not what I expected this game to be and I am quite disappointed personally. Not as fun as it could have been or interesting a 2/5 for me.
Love this game but.......
by MsW0rld on 2018/07/08 14:24
I have been playing this game for awhile now and absolutely love it. I will even set timers so I know when to go back and finish my mission (when energy refills). It is a bit annoying that it takes 4 minutes per 1 energy but beggars can’t be choosers! I’m not big on spending money on games but I’m at a point where I’m stuck trying to duel the boggart Voldemort and my courage points are at level 17 (needs to be level 19) to beat him. I have tried dueling him but fail each time. I have spent most of my money buying clothes and I even purchased the $6.99 gems deal just now. Also spent all of those on clothes. I am now at level 18, tried a duel twice and lost both times, now I am out of money and gems! Problem is now that I’ve spent $6.99 on gems, spent all the gems and game money I am stuck! I can not get out of the duel screen to go do a class to earn courage points and or money. It will not let me out no matter what I do. I want to keep playing but at this point I can’t go any further at all. I am stuck. The only option I have is to spend more real money, which I really don’t want to do. Before I spent the $6.99 on gems I was able to come and go. As I was doing flying classes to build up my courage points, which is what I was going to do today. Is there anything you can do to help me? If we get this fixed I will change my rating and review to a 5 star! Please help! Thank you....
Glitchy and poor customer service
by Hollymarie7 on 2020/12/11 15:02
I’ve been playing this game for a couple of months now. I love the concept since I’m a big Harry Potter fan. But, I’ve had some pretty disappointing experiences. The worst was when I was unable to access the game for 3 days because a scoreboard for a special event popped up when I opened the game and completely covered the screen. It was frozen and would not close despite force closing the app numerous times. I contacted customer service and was asked for my player ID, which I provided. I never heard back. I basically had to wait until the special event was over before I could get into the game again. This caused me to miss out on another event I really wanted to participate in along with the associated prizes and levels I might have achieved. With other games I play, when something similar happens they will usually issue a courtesy credit/prize for your inconvenience. Not on this one. Pretty bad. I also find the sound to be glitching. It goes on and off on its own without any interference from me. It’s not my phone. All other apps have continuous sound. And finally it would be nice to have more energy points, which are needed for a majority of the games, as you have to spend money fairly consistently to get anything done or progress in the levels. This doesn’t have much to do with skill, rather most of the time it’s that you’re out of energy and can’t continue.
Bad Energy Usage Setup, amazing otherwise
by Mastiff19 on 2018/06/13 09:44
For a free mobile game this is stunningly beautiful and involved so I’m grateful for that. Also getting to explore Hogwarts as “my own” experience. However like many of the reviews mention the energy system is a cash grab and honestly takes almost all of the fun out of the game. I’ll be finishing out of principal and my obsession with HP, but that’s the only reason why. I’m only on year two and it takes all of my energy to do half a lesson, then you wait almost two hours for it to refill. I wouldn’t mind waiting a day if I could actually play for an hour or so straight. Also the game could’ve had more creativity with the story line and maybe extracurricular activities. Instead you just click to accomplish things, do classroom time not learning to unlock lessons, and basically do whatever the game wants you to do. Most of the choices given to you only affect what rewards you get but not the storyline or what you do, and now in Year 2 I cant even pick most of the choices because my levels aren’t adequate. That is pretty irritating since the game is so structured. The only real change you can make is in your friend choice and the game gives you 3 and lets you focus more on certain ones so it doesn’t matter much. Most of the creativity and choosing is early on then it levels out and you just click and wait and click and wait. I hope a better, updated game from the HP universe comes out soon. This was a disappointment
