Love the game, but I have some suggestions
As a hardcore Potterhead, I love how Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery puts you into the world of Harry Potter! I absolutely love all the options and how they are always adding new customization options. With lots of hair colors, hair styles, clothing options, and dorm customizations, you can make the story YOUR own journey in the Wizarding World. I have a few ideas for upcoming updates. If you are uninterested in my update ideas, you don’t need to read the next paragraph. :D As I said, I have some ideas for future updates. 1: Friends. I know that Hogwarts Mystery already has computer generated characters that you can befriend, but I think it would be fun if you could befriend real people to do certain missions and events with. Me and my sister love to play this game but we want to play together sometimes. Like, in game together. 2: Energy. I think that you shouldn’t have to wait a full 4 minutes for 1 point of energy. Maybe like 1 or 2 minutes for 1 energy. In my opinion, it’s kinda ridiculous to have to wait a whole 4 minutes for 1 point of energy. And another thing is I think if you choose for your character to say something to keep them out of trouble (like telling a friend that they shouldn’t go somewhere) you could just walk away. Although this might mess with the way the story is so maybe not. Thanks for reading! Sorry it was so long.
I’m absolutely obsessed!!!🌺
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! 🤗
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.
Great Game! However has a couple problems
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
PLEASE READ: Love this game but needs to change....
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 Great but...
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.
Great Game But.....
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.
It’s great until...
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.
Good game, but...
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
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.🙄
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.
Improved so much ❤️
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 ❤️😍
This game is so fun. Relaxing and keeps you coming back for more. Even if you don’t have money to spend you can still progress. However, sometimes when I watch the daily reward ads, they do not register an award, even after watching the entire 30 second ad through. Also noticed that “energy” doesn’t fill up sometimes if you leave the game running in the background of your device. Almost like the timer stops. I left the game for 40 minutes, came back and energy was still zero. Also if your “energy” isn’t on refill timer, the extra energy you can collect around Hogwarts doesn’t count towards refilling your bar. So that’s not very nice, oh and don’t bother playing Gryffindor House because you will always be in last place in “events”. Another strange occurrence is while doing tournament type events with 25 other people, a random new player will show up in the list and suddenly be in first place, pushing all the original people down or people will disappear all together only to show up hours later. Or you will be neck and neck with someone for first place and suddenly they are 1000 points a head of you which is impossible in the full marks tournament. Last thing, Hagrids storyline is designed against you. You will never have enough notebooks to “adopt” creatures. The Cruppy story was angering considering you spend over 3 hours wasting energy just to find out there isn’t a puppy left for you. That angered me. Don’t buy into their greed unless you have money to burn.
I 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.
