The Game Review
In this game, the player gets to create his or her own avatar with a wide range of options to choose from, starting from the shape of the nose and ending up in the style of the outfit. The time period in the game is depicted to be of the year 1984, which is around eight years before Harry Potter enrolled in the same school. A number of characters from the book; students and teachers, believed to be a part of the school around or in the same period are part of the game too.
After the avatar is created, the player is asked for the choice of the house he wants to be placed into. At each step of the game, the player comes across different questions with three options to choose from. The chosen answer determines how the gameplay will take shape. This is how the player will be bonded with different friends and will face challenges and enemies; throughout the game.
During the gameplay, the player gets to make friends like Rowan, Penny, and Ben and has to deal with nuisances like Merula. In addition to making friends and dealing with the enemies, the game also includes classes which the player is required to attend. The classes will enable the player to learn different tricks, spells and potion making and also earn extra points if the answers to the questions asked are correct. The total number of points earned will determine if the player has lost or won the game.
The playing experience gets interesting since the player is free to make choices and it can be a different experience for different players making different choices. Also, visiting different parts of the school, beautifully shown in the game is an experience in itself.
The game is free to download with a few in-app purchases. You can always choose to turn off the in-app purchase feature in your gadget.
