Created by Zynga and officially licensed from Warner Bros. Games, this new mobile game is starting to roll out worldwide. Take a closer look at the gameplay right here.
As you can see, Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells invites players into a new series of wizarding world adventures, full of familiar characters, beloved fantastic beasts, magical objects and all manner of other spellbinding secrets to discover.
As with other games published under the Portkey Games label, you’ll be able to create your own wizarding world persona and navigate through a series of magical challenges. You’ll even be able to collaborate with others, share tips, chat with fellow fans or try out for prizes with the exclusive Club Events feature.
Each level comes with its own unique set of quirks and nuances that Harry Potter fans will know all too well. You’ll have certain spells you can use to crack particular puzzles (for example, may we suggest Wingardium Leviosa if you’re finding feathers are overtaking you’re screen?) and different ways to level up your XP, earn more spells and boost your abilities to tackle harder puzzles along the way. As you play on, you’ll master new methods as each challenge gets even more, well, challenging.
Magical objects are everywhere in this game: hopping Chocolate frogs, winged keys and wizard chess pieces to name a few. Some may hinder your progress as you play, so tread carefully as you figure out the magic needed to move forward.
And you won’t be alone. Throughout your puzzle-solving adventures, be prepared to bump into your favourite Harry Potter characters, look out for iconic wizarding world locations from the films, and keep an ear out for soundbites and music from the films.
Every day is different, thanks to daily challenges the game will offer up – serving nostalgic moments from the Harry Potter stories all the time.
The Zynga team were also feeling nostalgic when commenting on Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells.
‘When the Harry Potter series first came to theatres, it was one of those rare moments when everyone was reading the same book, talking about the same film and coming together around a shared experience,’ said Yaron Leyvand, Senior Vice President of Casual Games at Zynga. ‘Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells honours fans' connection to the series with a mobile game infused with the standout moments and delightful Wizarding World flourishes that have captivated a global following. The feedback from soft-launch has been outstanding, and we can’t wait for fans around the world to play.’
