If you haven’t heard yet, the new Harry Potter augmented reality game has just been released today.
To be forthcoming, I have been waiting for this game to be released since I heard about the idea over 2 years ago.
I just loved the idea of Pokemon Go and knew a Harry Potter version had a chance to be mind-boggling.
As I’m getting into the game I can better understand why it took the Niantic over 2 years to release this game.
There are multiple levels to this game and it’s going to take a little longer to better understand everything that is going on.
It’s Similar to Pokemon Go
Harry Potter comprises of an ‘augmented reality’ similar to Pokemon Go. You have to venture out with your phone and find creatures around your neighborhood or wherever you’d like to go.
They show up on the map as you’re walking and you cast spells to free the ‘Foundables’ as they’re calling them.
You Need Friends to Play
Inviting your friends to play helps you with larger Wizarding challenges like Fortresses. You have to work together to beat more difficult challenges.
If you plan on playing this game a lot, then you need friends to join you.
That’s not to say you can’t play this game by yourself but it significantly helps to have other Wizards by your side during some battles.
Prepare to Invest Some Serious Time
If you want to truly learn this game and all of the nuiances then you’re going to need to mess around on the app for a while.
The short list of things to learn about in this game include fortresses, Inns, spells, potions, professions, ingredients, Portkeys, and wand design.
Truly more to this game than I could have expected.
There are daily assignments, achievements, Statute of Secrecy Assignments and soon to be Special Assignments to keep you busy everyday.
On the first day, I have to say I am beyond impressed with this game!
I am sure there will be some bugs to work out as more players join but overall the developers have hit a home run with this one and I’m not as mad it took them this long.
If you’re a Harry Potter fan then this game is a must download!
If you’re looking for an excuse to do some exercise then this game is a must download!
Best of luck!
