Being a Potterhead, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery seems to everything to me. Only a Harry Potter fan would know what is feels to get a chance to start your very own Hogwarts journey where you don’t role-play as any specific book character but throughout have your own identity. How perfect is that!
Well, first of all let’s get to know about the detail gameplay mechanism of the game.
Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery: Gameplay Mechanism
Well, mostly the game revolves around solving multiple mysteries that are happening in the Hogwarts Castle; however, the game takes it start from the very first step necessary to before going to the school – buying book and wand from the Diagon Alley.
The gameplay requires you to do many things like, interacting with the Ollivanders and making friends at the Diagon Alley. You may also have to answer few questions in the game and collect various things, like; books and other needed stuff.
What makes this game so much more fun is that you will be having a life that Harry Potter, Hermione and Ron had; the thrills and chills of their lives will be part of your daily routine and just like them, you will also be facing many mysteries that need to be solved.
Are You a Witch or a Wizard? – Customize your look
Firstly, choose the gender for your character that is if you want to be a witch or a wizard, the choice is yours. However, once the gender is decided you can now customize the look of your character and give it the face and hair according to your will.
Moreover, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery goes to extreme lengths to make your journey exciting; it gives you a choice to be friends with whoever you desire along with letting you chose your own House from the four available options. Although, all potterheads are already aware of their names, but just for those who don’t know, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin are the houses to select from. So, just let Professor McGonagall put the Sorting Hat on your head and let it decide your place in the Hogwarts, well of course Sorting Hat surely keeps your choice in consideration.
The Mysterious Plot (Storyline)
The most exciting part about the game is that it lets you furnish your own journey. There will be many options that will keep on popping on the screen for you to decide where you want to take your life journey. Although we have played many such games in the past, such as Sims Mobile and Batman, but this one is definitely very special (at least for me).
However, at Ollivanders you will learn about your lost brother and how e got expelled from the school. Well, that seems interesting and I am sure this story will later on unfold and will be giving an exciting twist in the story.
So basically, the story is in your hands so let the story unfold and see how your life in Hogwarts turns out to be.
The Designated Tasks and Missions
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is full of various specific daily tasks that you must complete, not only to earn rewards, but also to move ahead in the game. Perform each task and earn many coins and other rewards. These tasks take off from some very easy and simple tasks such as meeting your friend in the common room and going the any specific class. However, the game catches the pace there are multiple things and tasks that you will have to perform, which may become harder as game moves along.
Additionally, you’d be learning various spells and charms in order to find your brother and make everything clear for you. You will be starting with basic spell like Lumos and will move on to learning bigger spells. Oh man! I am so excited, aren’t you?
Complete Chapters and Years
Each year is filled with many chapters for you to complete. Completing these chapter means that you are on your war to complete your class year. There are 7 years in total withholding many chapters in each one, I am dead sure that you will only be enjoying playing this amazing game and nothing else.
Rewards to be Collected
Earning rewards are quite important to sustain longer in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. You must earn and collect gems, coins and most importantly energy to be able to play the game without interruption; however, you can also buys these items for real money and can get a stock.
Not only that, but on completing each class and various tasks along with multiple chapters, you will also be getting points for your House (in my case I am a forever Slytherin). So, keep on finishing these tasks and get points and rewards for not only yourself but also for your House.
The completion of task and collection of XP and rewards would lead t the leveling up of the character hence many more opportunities would unlock for you. There are some options that can be unlocked on specific level do it is important that you earn more and more XP to firstly to move to the next level and also to increase the XP bar, advantageous to sustain longer in the game.
Earn House Points
Just like in the book and the movies, this game too has a rule of earning points for your House. However, where you can earn points for good performance there is also a chance that any wrong move would take points from your house. So, be aware of your decisions and see what will make you more shine and not fall like a falling star.
Meet Your Favorite Characters
What seemed most exciting to me was to meet all those professors that I once only read about. Professor Snape, Professor Dumbledore, McGonagall and all other teachers are present in the game to teach you and guide you as in the book and movie; Snape seems the most dashing professor of them all. I just LOVE him!
Let’s not forget about the amazingly crafted graphics that are rich in tone and are formed on crystal clear view. The visuals are extremely smooth which makes your journey a lot more better and thrilling overall. So, kudos to that!
