    This game deserves a five star rating just because the creators did such an amazing job at making Hogwarts, the entire app, look so amazing and on point with how the school actually looks. I was immediately addicted to this game as soon as I downloaded it months ago. I love that you can make your own custom witch/wizard. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, being able to choose your House is a big deal. The story starts and you’re hooked. I’ve read the negative reviews and most people just don’t want to pay for anything extra. That’s fine. This game does not require you to buy anything for you to be able to move forward. But if you love the game, want to buy some extra gems on a sale for some extra energy, then don’t feel guilty about spending $5-$20! It supports the game, helps bring updates faster, and helps the creators expand the game further. All for FREE! People need to stop complaining about getting an amazing game for free and that they don’t want to spend money or wait for the energy to refill. Just support the game! If you love it, support it! If it was a popular Xbox game, you would be spending $65, plus whatever the season pass was, PLUS a monthly fee to play online. I’d rather spend $20 on Harry Potter and hope they expand the game or make a second game. Our money really does help bring us amazing entertainment with this particular team. They’re awesome!

    Love the story line, side quests, and events. I wish I could give it more stars but the fact that I can only play for a few minutes at a time because the energy runs out so quickly is a giant downfall to thw game... The only way to get more energy quicker, aside from the few hidden spots around the castle, is to purchase it, not everyone has that option. I would really like to see the energy problem fixed so that I can complete a full mini-story in one go. Other than that its a great game!

  • It’s Great but... Jun 4, 2020

    By Truthful Game reveiwer
    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.

    Really enjoyed this game, it has lots of different storylines so you feel as if it's very individual to you. You work your way through the school years learning spells, solving problems, playing Quidditch and making friends. However, over the last two days it's got incredibly glitchy, not completing challenges etc, which means I've had to constantly shut down. Now it will not even open. Gutted, as I've committed so much time to it....

  • I love this game but..... Oct 24, 2020

    By Kaye Moon
    I’ve been obsessed for the longest time, and I was super excited when I finished the first year. However I couldn’t even finish the welcoming feast in year two before the game crashed. So I said “Alright, I’ll just restart the game.” So I did. It started the feast over so I went through it again but in the same spot it crashed again. I tried several more times and again and again it crashed and would start me back over. This made me so so upset because this happened on my previous phone too, which was an iPhone 5 and I thought that this new iPhone 6 was going to be better. And it was! Until the second year feast. I just really wish that I could play the game all the way through without getting pushed back when it crashes. I can’t continue the game anymore and it saddens me because I really looked forward to playing the rest of it. I can’t even finish events anymore because the game will crash while I’m playing at random. I hope maybe the developers and people who work on the game can fix this, because I love this game. It’s so fun and whimsical and makes me laugh. It takes me back to being a kid and loving HP and watching it during Christmas time and Halloween. I adore the characters, the story is so compelling, and the visuals are really cool and often funny. I really just want to know what’s going on, and why it keeps crashing, and I hope it gets fixed. Thank you for a great game while it lasted, I hope that one day I may play again.

    I would really recommend this game, but the thing is that my game is stuck in the part 6, for 1 whole day and I think it's some glitch. Because I'm told to meet with Rowan at courtyard and I did complete the task... but they are still pointing me in the same direction but giving me no task, or let me redo it, I don't think redoing is an option here, but the game should have processed by now, right?

    Like the game, story line is intriguing but every time I complete a quest I run out of energy. I buy the diamonds to buy the energy to complete quests, only to have to pay more diamonds to fufill the next quest or wait 3+ hours. If I decide not to pay any more money and wait the time -- I come back to the game which has me play the previous quest again, spend more of my energy, and wait the 3+ hours again. This has happened several times. Will uninstall soon. There's almost no play time.

    The game is fun. It really is. However the energy system even with its updates still isn't balanced enough to make descent progress. Also everyone hates having to wait three hours or more for next chapters to be playable. It's absolutely rubbish. The game stays a pure money grab on the part of the developers if they don't fix this. Im not even asking for completely balanced im just asking for the developers to make it manageable.

    Fix your broken, buggy game. It lags, freezes, and won't save half the time. Over 4 hours waisted on a timed event on the last day because it didnt save, twice. So I had to use my long saved up gems to finish. Thanks a lot😠. The stars keep getting lowed. I don't wanna uninstall, I've spent real money, and I'm on year 4. But It's getting to be unplayable sometimes. A nice thing: Thank you for the free dress🐍

    Waiting for timers to count down makes the flow of the game boring. I don't mind waiting for energy to recharge but having to wait 2 to 3 hours for story missions to unlock, and sometimes having to wait 8 and 12 hours for somethings is a very bad idea in my opinion. The five minutes at a time I do get to play are good but I never truly feel like I'm getting anything accomplished. Game needs just a little better balancing.

  • I’m absolutely obsessed!!!🌺 Apr 24, 2020

    By DANCE4EVER!!!🌸
    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! 🤗

  • Great Game! However has a couple problems Oct 27, 2019

    By Agelina N.
    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

  • No way to go but up. May 23, 2018

    By Strikewillow
    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.

    It's an amazing game. I just loved it. Pets are really lovable. What I love in the game most is Magical Milestones. It's really awesome. One more thing to tell i.e you can uninstall happily whenever you want without fear coz the next time you install you can continue your where you left it , not like other games. So it is very very convenient.

    I love this game! It's addicting, and I don't really mind that I have to take breaks for my energy to reload, although I do wish it would reload a little faster. I would have given 5 stars, and I will change it if my problem is answers or fixed. The issue I'm having is that whenever I would fees my creatures, I would get the option to choose a reward. The last couple days, no rewards were offered for feeding them. Not sure if this is a new thing or just a glitch, but I miss my rewards! Thanks!

  • Great Game But..... Oct 14, 2019

    By Pay up or Fail
    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.

    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.

    Great game when it's working properly. Having a lot of issues with it actually updating progress. For example, I am currently doing the dragon country adventure, I get notified that the next stage was ready yet when I log into the game it's back at the end of the last stage and now I have to wait all over again. This bug in the game has caused me to miss out on completing adventures several times, which is infuriating when I've spent gems on energy to complete tasks. Please fix this asap

    The game gets impossible to play at a certain point unless you want to keep paying money for energy. This got really inconvenient really fast. I've waited for almost a week to complete a lesson so I would have enough energy but lost it because the lesson restarted and because the game has you waste it on stupid stuff that doesn't progress the storyline and lessons. Please fix it. This is a really great game with a lot of needless flaws.

  • Love this game but it has some big issues Jan 2, 2020

    By nerdsunite
    I would love to give this game 5 stars but I can’t. The story is great I love the game. the idea of the app is good but the energy thing is ridiculous. I cannot go to an event without using all my energy so I have to wait and there are so many events to do so most of the time I am not continuing the story just trying to get enough stars just so I can START the lesson so I can continue the story. It takes way too much time and I just want to continue the story. The amount of gems it takes to get a good amount of energy is ridiculous and getting gems is hard so then you have to buy gems for a ridiculous amount of money. You also have to use gems so you can start an event. Or you could wait 8 hours. That is ridiculous. The creators are obviously trying to make money but I am not spending a single penny on this game. This game isn’t even finished, I saw another review that said you can’t get past year six. The game is filled with bugs and I keep getting kicked out. One time it took a month before I could play. Creators: Finish the game please! Still gonna keeps this app on my phone and play but if something doesn’t change soon I won’t spend anymore time on this game. Other people have the same complaints but I still had to write this review. Creators need to see the complaints so they can fix the game. P.S I would love if you guys could let us switch houses. I accidentally picked Ravenclaw when I should be in Gryffindor. Just a tip!

    The game is fun and exciting but the main problem is that energy runs out too quickly and it takes hours to get refilled .Moreover next tasks usually takes 2 to 3 hours to unlock or even more which makes it quite irritating. It would have been great if there were more rewards available for energy and gems and also if tasks take few minutes to get unlocked.

    I've been playing this game for almost two years. The developers keep finding new ways to punish long term players. As you play the game, you increase your energy cap but they make the energy cost to complete tasks increase so much that it feels like a cash grab. Being caught up makes it almost impossible to compete in their bombardment of pvp events against newer players. Most infuriating, they apparently just removed rewards for feeding maxed creatures, taking away incentive to collect them.

  • A whole lot of nothing. Aug 19, 2019

    By Cautious reviewer
    There is an interesting plot but you’re just in it for the ride. All of your choices seem to have no consequences and if you fail you can just try again. I feel like I should just watch the you tube play throughs. I would have as much agency. Then there is the house pride events. They are ways to earn exclusive avatar items but it always feels like no matter how hard you try or how well you do you’ll always come in second at the last minute. (This last event I more than doubled the next place in points, I came in second in the final hours after being up by thousands of points.) If it’s a group event, there is no way to communicate with your team and I’ve always been beat by multiple time what I could score alone. I’m dragged down by barely active players. Fortunately there are some events where you’re looking for some sort of fixed score in a fixed time period, a purely solo event. In these I have been successful. That said these are usually dueling events and that adds another level of frustration. It’s a rock/paper/scissors-esque game. There are more analytics about this online but the RNG for this game seems biased. With a random choice from you, the computer opponent beats you more than a third of the time and ties less than a third. With this happening on the first spell it puts you in a bad place for the rest of the duel. TLDR: watch the you tube videos. It saves you time and can allow you to explore more of the mostly irrelevant choices.
