Late last night we posted about Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery soft launching on Google Play. It’s made by Jam City, who are responsible for games like Cookie Jam (Free), Family Guy Freakin Mobile Game (Free) and more super popular mass market free to play mobile games. Unsurprisingly, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is also very free to play and features gameplay that seems to be in line with other free to play point and click games. If you watch the video you’ll see a stamina system, multiple currencies, and everything else that I’m sure will upset people around here:
That being said, I’m about 99.9999% sure this game will be an unbelievable success. The character creation, wand selection, and day to day Hogwarts activities are all going to appeal to casual gamer Potter fans to an extent that is just going to be unbelievable to behold. I was going to suggest that if you’re looking for a Harry Potter mobile game that plays a bit more like an traditional video game to check out Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7… Buuuuuut they’re not on the App Store anymore, so, that’s cool.
