Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

Today is finally the day Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is now available to download for mobile devices. Hurray! Has anyone started playing the game? Did you venture to Diagon Alley to get your books and your wand? Did you befriend Rowan and take the Hogwarts Express to Hogwarts? What about the Sorting Ceremony? What house are you in? So far I currently finishing my flying lesson. I am in Ravenclaw of course. Check out the beautiful Ravenclaw Common Room below.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a stamina based RPG mobile game. When you first start the game, you can create your own character. Afterwards, you befriend Rowan right before you venture to Diagon Alley to obtain your school books and your wand. Some backstory about your family is also introduced around this time. You get to hop on the Hogwarts Express to head to Hogwarts and Mcgonagall sorts all the first-years with the sorting hat. Just to give you heads up, you get to choose your house which is a relief. After all, the sorting hat takes in consideration what house you associate with the most.

After you get sorted, you can check out your common room before starting to do tasks and lessons. Some of the lessons I've done so far is learning Lumos with Professor Flitwick and making a cure for boils with Professor Snape. Madam Hootch is currently teaching me how to summon a broom. There are other things like chatting with certain characters, befriending characters and playing Gobstones that will help you get further in the game. By completing lessons, you get rewarded with stamina energy, coins or gems. Sometimes you will be rewarded attributes such as courage, empathy and knowledge. These attributes will come in handy later on. With coins and gems, you can purchase different hairstyles and clothing or you can save them to play a game of Gobstones or to replenish your energy.

Of course there is a Malfoy type of character who will try to get you in trouble or even worse, expelled. Don't let this person taunt you too much. This person will definitely try to do whatever it takes to set you up to lose house points. Keep your guard up but remember to enjoy the game. Don't get too caught up with bullies.

Here's my profile page. You can always adjust your character in terms of looks and name whenever you want. As you can see below, you can track your house points you've contributed, what rank your house is for the House Cup and see what levels are achieved overall and for your attributes. Overall all the game is pretty solid but it is slow to load. Again, the game just released today so I assume some updates will fix some bugs and hopefully the creators will eventually take players suggestions in consideration to improve the game.

Let me know how are you enjoying the game if you are currently playing. I hope there is more interaction between users in the future because I would love to interact with some of my blog readers via Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
