(4.5) Perfect - minus the location flaws
I very rarely find a game that I’m excited about and feel like I need to play regularly, so on the build up to this I thought it would be incredible. At it is. My inner wizard is screaming loudly because this is exactly what I wanted as a kid as I read the Harry Potter books - I wanted to catch dark wizards and see the strange creatures and magical items in my muggle life. This game has huge prospects and I can’t wait to see what the developers come out with in the next updates.
The only problem I have with the app that didn’t give this review the 5 I wanted to is the location services. I walk a lot and track it on my Apple Watch. Now, with Pokemon Go, it uses the miles you’ve walked and allows you to open eggs to hatch pokemon. With this game I assumed the same would happen with the port keys, but it doesn’t. I’ve walked miles and miles and logged back into the app to see it showing I’d walked 0km. Then I checked the app settings and you can either set it to never use location services or use them only while you’re in the app. For someone who walks a lot without their phone, this is a key thing I want to see in an update!
(4.5) Brilliant but...
I love this game, it’s really good that you can do the actual spell movements and try and do it quickly and accurately. I just found out that when you are brewing a potion, you can swipe down and do some movements on the potion like stirring it and that is good, as it speeds up the potion.
As much as I love this game, like every other game, it has its faults (although there aren’t many here 😊)I found that when I’m trying to make my profile picture, the game stops and exits. Also, once my gps was turned on and the game said it wasn’t, so I couldn’t play for a while, but it hasn’t happened since so that’s not a real issue. I also think that when you are learning things in your profession, you should have to do something a bit more than collecting scrolls and books etc, so if it’s a spell you are “mastering”, you should have to do the spell a few times before mastering it. Also, I think your energy should recharge over time, instead of having to buy it whenever you run out.
Overall, it is an amazing game, so addictive and fun to play. I highly recommend it to Harry Potter fans. Keep up the good work!
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.
