Love the play at home updates

I’ve been playing this game for nearly a year now, and I’ve always enjoyed it. Some of the brilliant events in the past have been a little frustrating as I’ve struggled with some of the tasks, especially fortress challenges. Also, since most of my walks are with a pram or buggy atm it wasn’t always easy to clock the miles when walking, requiring the app to be open. However, there have been some really thoughtful updates in recent months, meaning my distances just round the house are clocked and count towards portkeys, and since the Covid-19 outbreak the developers have been really thoughtful and creative about enabling game play. I’ve been really pleased that so much work has gone into enabling players to continue but in safety. So so excited about the Knight Bus release!!! Thank you for all your hard work. The magic really does exist!!

Great, but Too Complicated

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a great game, it’s magical! You can see monsters and friends all in the real world before you through your phone screen and cast spells. You can make a wizard ID, choose your house and wand, and wander around your local area searching for things. There are a few bad things though. As many comments have already said, there’s something called spell energy which, in short, stops you playing the game if you don’t have enough. I won’t go into too much detail on that though. He second bad thing about the game is that it drains the battery in seconds. I’m on an outdated iPhone 6, and this killed my battery. It also made my phone boiling hot, which was a little worrying. The third bad aspect of the game is the reason why it drains the battery. It is way too complicated. All I want from this game area few simple things, what makes the game unique. The AR Feature, the GPS, and the wizard ID are all nice. Niantic have added far too many uninteresting things that make the game difficult to navigate and confusing. To conclude, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a great game for any Harry Potter fan, provided they’re on a phone with a good battery and one that can handle difficult games, but it is just more than it needs to be. I would still recommend this game to anyone though.

Has the potential to be addictive... except for the major energy meter flaw.

Has the potential to be addictive... but the limited energy meter (75 points) makes it difficult to get into. With such a low cap it would have been intuitive to have it refill over time alongside being able to use the inn-charge points (which are currently the only way to gain more energy, and you don’t gain very at these anyway). It’s very easy to waste away energy during the game, as you use one energy point per spell you cast, and even common/easier/low-risk “foundables” can take 3-4 spells to capture, and you find you’ll come across these same more-common foundables A LOT, wasting your energy recapturing the same thing again and again.
Wasting so much energy is also very limiting when battling, as 5-10 spells are required to defeat a single enemy.

Overall, if an update came out soon that would allow a player more energy refills more regularly (like a full refill over 12 or 24 hours?), the game would be massively improved. Otherwise I can tell there are a lot of storyline aspects that have the potential to be gripping and I’m looking forward to getting into them - just need the capacity to do this.
