Taking into account the immense popularity that the character of Harry Potter has reached through the years, it is surprising that Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game that allows you to become a student of Hogwarts. But it seems that the wait was worth it, and now, to the delight of many fans who were already enjoying the game on iOS and Android, will also embark on a series of new adventures special Haloween.
October begins on a festive touch while everyone is preparing for the feast of Halloween. The living room Great Hall is now adorned with pumpkins and decorations appropriate for the occasion, and the characters of Hogwarts have gathered for this annual event as expected. But in the midst of the celebration, we present an unexpected situation that will test the skills of any player.
“This October, we’re exploring the darker side of Hogwarts,” said Josh Yguado, president and director of operations of Jam City. “Since the feast of Halloween in the Great Hall, up to our events in the game and side quests, players will have the opportunity to experience a full month of festivities in October, ranging from fun to frightening”.
WHAT IS THE GAME?
Hogwarts Mystery allows you to play during the seven years of your education in the institution. For the majority of the followers of Potter, the more attractive appearance of this game is probably the freedom it gives you to explore all that surrounds you, and discover new areas and territories. It is not an experience linear in that you are tied to a target at a time.
After you create your character, the day Hogwarts Mystery begins in Diagon Alley, where you must gather the essential elements to your first year of school. In Diagon Alley, you get your textbooks from Flourish and Blotts, you equip a wand in Ollivanders, and answer questions of personality along the way, through influences in the home in which you will place the hat known as The Sorting Hat.
As this is a game RPG (role-playing game), and your choices in the dialog affect the way it develops your time at the school Hogwarts. You attend classes, you make friends, you play Quidditch, you’ll confront other students, and even have the opportunity to conquer any character which you like. The game features the ability to cast spells in an interactive way, using your touchscreen, which you’ll learn under the watchful eye of your teachers.
The story is set in the 1980s, in the season between the death of Harry’s parents and their arrival at the school. Therefore, you will not have interaction with the famous magician young, but you’ll see other familiar faces from the books and movies. Maggie Smith repeated his role as professor McGonagall, and Michael Gambon will offer advice wise as Dumbledore. The teacher Flitwick, Madam Hooch, Irma Pinch and Madam Pomfrey also have the voices of the actors in the original film.
You’ll also meet some new characters that will prove important to general history at Hogwarts Mystery. Among them is Penny, a fan of the potions Hufflepuff; Merula, a Slytherin with a past problematic; and Tulip, a fun young man of the kind Ravenclaw. This will also be the first time that you’ll see characters like Bill Weasley and Tonks, during their days at the school Hogwarts.
This game was developed by Jam City and published by Portkey Games, the new agency for the Warner Brothers dedicated to Harry Potter. It is best that Hogwarts Mystery is free for iOS and Android.
