  • Fun game but Daily Club Puzzle issue & TOO MANY DUPLICATES!!!!! Dec 26, 2020

    By Dfiles
    Firstly the game is very fun. Love Harry Potter. I enjoy the magic spells. Secondly, the have creatures you can unlock by getting certain cards you can only get after beating eight levels. Then you only get 3 random cards and you need 8 to unlock a creature. I have about 6 or 7 creatures I can unlock now and I’ve only been able to unlock 2 after getting to level 517. All I ever get now is DUPLICATES! They even have limited time creatures. How am I supposed to unlock anything if all I get is duplicates. Stop making the duplicates populate so much. Give us a chance to unlock other creatures then just the first two. Please! Thirdly, the daily puzzle. The daily puzzle can only be started by leaders or mvps. There always seems to be the issue of someone starting the puzzle to late or to early, an unconvenient time. I think a simple solution, that every other puzzle game with daily puzzles I ever played has done, should be that the game automatically starts the ‘Daily Puzzle’ for the day maybe at midnight or 6 am. The the ‘Daily puzzle me lasts ‘All Day’ until 11:59 pm. Then everyone will have a chance to play it. No more complaints about puzzle starting to late or to early because it won’t be one or two person’s responsibility to start it. A ‘Daily Puzzle’ should be available ‘All Day’ not just 6 hours. This game could be great, buts it’s just ok right because of these simple issues just being overlooked. Please fix.

  • Been playing since it came out and I'm hooked Dec 9, 2020

    By Thisislexi2
    Ok so this app is amazingly fun. Right from the get go, it brings back so much nostalgia. I even play with my headphones in at night so I can hear the music. It makes me want to read all the books again and watch the movies again. Such a fun way to keep this amazing world alive! I did have some complaints when they changed the way the gems looked, but I am used to them now and honestly don't mind them anymore. I love playing in the leagues. It makes it more fun and challenging and not just playing puzzles, but actually competing against other teams. I do notice that my updates don't show up when everyone else's though because my app says I'm at the end of the levels but people on my team are on levels past me. So I'm just waiting for an update. Not sure if this is a glitch because it seems everyone else can update but me?? Please fix this. I'd like to keep up with my team. I also love how they do the new challenges every week and give you a chance to earn unlimited lives. Keep em comin!

    I mean, SO FAR it's fun, and free. Will see how long that second part lasts lol. It's your basic match 3 game but, well, Harry Potter themed. But it's licensed so the art is great, the voices are correct, etc. If you're a fan of either Potter or any sort of gem match game, you should enjoy this - if you're a fan of both, you're gonna get your socks knocked off.

  • Great game, get rid of the spiders Oct 28, 2020

    By Elisa Reed
    Overall, this game is great. I normally get bored of other match 3 type games, seeing as they’re not interesting enough or at some point they’re the same thing over and over, but this game does a great job of keeping it new and interesting. What it doesn’t do a great job of? Oh my god the spiders. When the event hit me this week, I thought I could probably make it through the week, seeing as my arachnophobia is only mild and I’m generally fine with spiders as long as they don’t come near me or touch me. However, I was wrong. The spiders were too much for me, and I think I’ll have to sit this week out if this game legitimately causes me this much stress. According to other friends who play the game, the spiders make a reappearance later in the game, and at that point I don’t know what I’ll do. I also have many friends who are arachnophobic and play the game, and their arachnophobia is much worse than mine.I would like to make a request for the spiders to be eliminated, made less realistic, or at least add an option in the settings to replace them with harmless stand-ins. I would love to keep playing this game, I really would, but a game shouldn’t cause me this much stress.

    I want to give 5 stars but a lot of the levels are just way too hard! Especially the ones with the plants & those balls that turn red and go back to white. It makes me so frustrated that I've almost uninstalled more times than I can count. Please make the puzzles a little less difficult. It would be much more fun. And why does everything have to take so much time? It's an ok game but needs lots of improvements!

    After playing the game for several days, I'm afraid I must lower the star rating significantly. It's fun at first, but the difficulty eventually becomes insane. I've had several puzzles take at least 10 tries to pass, and I'm usually pretty good at this type of game. Buying more moves costs a ridiculous amount of gold, which is hard to come by unless you spend real money. Special moves are also rare, unless you again spend real money. It's not fun anymore.

    I like the graphics and the game itself is okay. The game is rather difficult I have played many match three games and none of them seemed as annoyingly difficult as this one is. Yes you can eventually win each level but it takes way too long. Also it annoys me that sometimes a spell Will work with 20 moves left then you do the game over and it does it within 12 moves left. You never know which I think is their way to make you spend money. I just think this game is flawed

    Your games are not winnable without power ups. Try again please, I’ve watched the gems change colors when swiping my bag to the color gem I wanted. I’ve watched the remembrels that were red and get hit but don’t go away. The jelly beans do the same. It takes to long to get the feathers to do the classes, it costs to much to just get another 5 moves. Which I think you did on purpose so people would buy power- ups at an insane amount of money. The game is a blast and challenging but when the game cheats you out of moves and changes colors. I’ve lost my interest. And it seems the higher the level the worse it gets. So please don’t give us the typical answer that all other game developers do it’s insulting to us. It’s frustrating that I have to spend 3-4 days on one level without power-ups to even get close to a win. But yet here you are saying it was made that way. But here’s the problem of course you can win it you all made the game and know how to make it happen a blue- print if you will. So please get off the well we can win it horse. You can win it because you made it, you have an advantage we don’t. And another thing, don’t say your going to fix it when you know you won’t, you only want people’s money and will tell them what they want to hear and you all know it.

    So far, it's been a pretty good game. Occasional freezes when trying to start playing. Today, I've been trying for 15 minutes to get in, but it freezes before I can get anywhere. So much for my unlimited lives for 30 minutes as part of my daily reward. Still freezing whenever I try to open. Dropped to 1 star because it continues to be an issue

    I love this game, but since the update my ability to msg my members in my club has disappeared. My mods still have it but not me. And I'm the leader. That makes no sense. I contacted support but they gave me the run around of all the things I already tried. Yes, my phone is a new phone, compatibility is not an issue, Yes I'm on wifi, I cleared cache, force stopped and for the second time now, uni/reinnstalled. Nothing works. Please fix this.

    Fun and interactive. No ads needed, unless you want to watch them for freebies. Levels are manageable without burning through lives until about level 75. The other aspects of the game (clubs, bonuses, daily challenges, animal and card collections, etc) make this game entertaining and attention grabbing. The levels and art are great scenes from the movies, and plenty of levels planned out for now.

  • Great Time Killer Jan 7, 2021

    By pokbwuslandh
    Great game with a lot of creativity, but I believe there are some features that could be tweaked for a better experience. My biggest suggestion is the unlimited lives when you log in. I like to play at night and my league has a set time they usually activate our challenge. That is when I want to use my unlimited lives since it’s a timely occurrence. Throughout the day, I am fine with just giving my normal levels a go, and then waiting till my lives refill. If being able to activate our unlimited rewards whenever we want, I think that’d be great even if they expire after 24 hours so you can’t stack them. Also, the price of power ups is a little high with gold being so hard to collect without paying. I know games like this need to make money but I would more willingly make a purchase if I felt like the gold was worth it, but right now you can only buy a few power ups, extra turns for a high cost. Overall, great game. Just needs some adjustments.

  • Favorite match-3 I’ve found so far Dec 9, 2020

    By NerdyMomtality
    I love that making a cube is a move you can do. The Potterverse references, clubs, character bonuses, & bonus "classes" are great! I hope more get added as we move through the years. The Gameplay is simple but the levels are challenging. Suggestions: Need more stars &/or trophies awarded based off points or more ways to earn them. (For Ex: clearing the board should have more benefits as far as points go. I shouldn't have to clear the board 5 times & still lose on a level that requires 6 books to be gathered.) Also, it would be nice if we could save the power ups earned from the clear gems. Maybe set an option to “use now” or “use later” and then set a 3 move save limit before it’s automatically activated or disappears or something? I keep setting up for a specific move just to have a fanged frisbee blow up all my pieces. It’s so frustrating (but not a deal breaker).

    The game itself is great fun. Lots of side prizes, a daily puzzle, etc. However, recently the game often runs at 50% speed and somtimes freezes. Really annoying when your using awarded free time or on timed daily puzzles. Please look into this. Again I love the actual game play, the avatars, prizes, puzzles. A ton of time went into making this game and it shows.

  • Fun, but don’t expect to earn more creatures Jan 10, 2021

    By Libei10
    The game is highly addictive. You can do every level without power ups, though it might take several tries. I’m over level 900 without spending money on the game. That being said there are issues, and you won’t earn creatures after the ones you get on the first day. Examples of issues include incorrect notifications and puzzle problems. Currently I have 7 notifications on the Events tab and I should have 1. It behaves especially weird when guild puzzles are open. In addition, it’s common for it to take out the wrong color when I do a swap and for puzzles to start with swapping (meaning it doesn’t even start with valid choices). This last thing leads me to believe that while all puzzles are winnable, they are not all winnable every time otherwise there would be no swapping at the beginning. All cards in the packs (even the packs you spend gold on) are duplicates. When you get one away from getting a new one, all the new cards generated from the duplicates turn in will be for a brand new creature that’s just been announced. I don’t see a way to pay for a new one because all the cards I’ve got with gold gave me duplicates so there isn’t really a reason to go after the gold for me. I’d be tempted to spend money to get more pets, but as the game is now, I don’t see a reason to work for or buy gold. It’s a lost opportunity because collecting creatures is something that would hold my interest.

    This game is very good. The levels aren’t too hard which makes it fun while challenging your brain. I would give a 5 star review but on the edit avatar feature I feel like you should add more outfits and more options. Right now you can only choose from 3 outfits and I really think you should upgrade that. This app doesn’t really have in app purchases. I myself have not purchased anything. The only thing I’ve seen so far is the starter pack which includes Luna lovegods glasses and more spells. I’m pretty sure you can get the spells by doing levels anyways. The details in the characters are excellent! I feel like you should try and find some more voice lines for them seeing that hermionie may say something that’s 8 words long but the voice line only has her say 3. This is all my opinion and I will not stop playing this game because aside my critic opinion this is a fun game.

  • Enjoyable, but there are frustrations Jan 3, 2021

    By kbear05
    I enjoy playing the game. The puzzles become more challenging, which is to be expected, although some have such limited available moves that it is virtually impossible to achieve the goals, collect a large number of a certain color gem without using multiple power ups and buying extra lives. My biggest issue though, is that after you collect enough stars to open a pack of cards, they are all duplicates. At least the last 4-5 times I haven’t received one new card. I only have three of the creatures, so it’s not like I have so many that only duplicates should keep coming up. I would like to get the limited time creature, but NO NEW CARDS EVER COME UP. This is extremely irritating, especially since it takes 50 duplicates to get a ‘new’ card. I don’t see how this benefits you as developers to turn off players over something like this.

  • Great game but there are a couple of glaring issues Nov 17, 2020

    By Angrybob4213
    First is the wildcard system. After every 8 levels you can open a pack of 3 wildcards used to unlock new pets. The problem is you almost exclusively open duplicate cards. I get there have to be some, but when you go a week of playing every day and don't open a single new card, especially when there's a limited time pet to unlock, it's extremely frustrating. My wife and I both played at least an hour a day for the whole two weeks it was available and only each got 2 of the 6 cards needed to unlock it. The other issue I have is the control of moving pieces during gameplay. When you go to swipe a piece there's a very good chance that it moves a different direction than you wanted or the piece next to it moves instead. I thought maybe I was just being careless and have since been more careful about how I touch the screen but still have the same issues. Other than these two problems the game is great!

    Great Looking Game, Decent Puzzles. But there are a couple of problems. Let's talk about cards. You need cards to unlock creatures. The trouble is the game gives you SO MANY duplicates it becomes laughable. I cannot remember the last time I actually got a useful non-duplicate card. Basically they want you to dump insane bucket loads of money into buying coins and then fritter those coins away recklessly to get cards. Eventually it boils down to pay to advance or achieve anything useful.

  • Great game if you’re willing to spend money Oct 7, 2020

    By MTverbut
    I absolutely loved this! It’s graphics are amazing and the way it’s so authentic to HP canon is just incredible. Plus it’s a lot of fun which is kind of important. But wow are they trying to make you spend money. And it’s like they are being sneaky about it too. Power ups are ridiculously expensive, they give you free gold daily, but it’s not enough to ever be able to purchase a power up. One big complaint I have is that the first 100 or so levels were easy and enjoyable. After that it doesn’t just get gradually harder, it becomes incredibly difficult to beat without the power ups, often multiple ones. It seems like the game will help you pass a level after you’ve played it about 5 times and are almost of lives, but struggling on every level just takes all the fun out of the game. I don’t mind spending a little bit of money if I get something that lasts me awhile. But this just feels like a money pit and sadly I’m losing interest.

  • Fun for a Bit then Hard to Make Progress Jan 3, 2021

    By allieo1990
    This game is like a way more fun version of Candy Crush - the Harry Potter element and especially getting to ‘work’ in teams is awesome. However after a certain point (I beat all the regular levels and got to ‘Legends’ while they continue to develop more levels) it’s extremely difficult. I’m updating my review to 2 stars based on how obnoxious the magical creatures component is - So you get 1 star for beating 1 level (which takes a long time to do in the upper levels). Once you get 8 stars you can open a pack of 3 cards. Each card is either basic or rare which gets you 1 or 3 points respectively (these are all duplicate cards you’ve previously received). Only when you get FIFTY of these duplicate points do you get a new card. This would be fine but here’s the kicker: they introduce special magical creatures every couple of weeks that go away after a certain amount of days. You can work incredibly hard playing hours upon hours a day and they will give you 5 of the 6 cards for the new creature, then when you finally level up to 50 points again, you’ll conveniently get a card for a DIFFERENT, pack losing the special creature altogether when it times out. Complete waste of time/ obnoxious/ makes me want to not play anymore. I’ve been working for a couple of weeks just for this silly unicorn and after getting Almost all the cards they give me a different one 2 days before the unicorn goes away.

  • Update: Loved it until... Nov 5, 2020

    By Nicknamekat87766
    Thank you to the support team, we were moved back to Saphire. But...that move wiped out 2000 trophies we accumulated since Monday and not enough time to catch up with league before the next Monday. Still love playing the game but disappointed that we will probably get demoted unless they restore our hard earned trophies. Previous review: First the bad: our club WayhavenPD spent weeks (and members’ money) getting promoted to Saphire level when the game botched the promotion and sent us backward 2 whole levels to Emerald 2. Support is not responding to tickets and members are very frustrated! Also the “watch” button promises trophies and shortened time for the vault but after watching the ads, the game doesn’t provide the reward. Now the good: amazingly tied puzzles to HP theme, so much more fun than a normal match3 type game. Absolutely loved playing but now feel the achievements may disappear anytime like our club status did, so we don’t trust we will get money’s worth if we invest in coins

    I have to decrease my rating from 5 stars to 1 because I can't give a zero rating. And this is because over suddenly game just decided not to start a level meantime used up all my lives. And also have previous experience of that when level was completed in showed me a screen "Sorry you failed, you just need to..." and there was nothing else to be done, all of the goals were completed. Sounds strange but it's nonsense!
