You probably already know this about me, but I am a huge gamer. We have every gaming system imaginable, but one of my favorite ways of gaming is on mobile. That is why Pokemon Go quickly became a go to game for me. Especially when the weather was nice and I could take walks around town. So when the same company released Harry Potter Wizards Unite – I was THRILLED! I mean, I love me some Harry Potter. This game is fun – but there is one BIG problem with it.
Listen, I get using energy to cast spells – and having to go to an inn to replenish it. But why, oh why do you not get some more energy every day. It doesn’t have to be a lot, but a little goes a long way. If I am unable to walk around my neighborhood and go to an inn, I am out of luck on playing for the day. That really stinks.
And then, even if I do go find an inn or two around my block, it is completely random how much energy you get. I could get as little as three energy. And the issue with this is that sometimes I end up casting the same spell ten or more times at a foundable, which really drains my energy stockpile.
I will say that it really depends on where you live. When I was visiting Philly on vacation, I noticed a lot more inns around. And I was maxed energy my whole weekend there! So if you live in a city, or a place with lots of inns, you will not have this problem that I have upstate New York.
I will say that I enjoy having missions and special events – which is similar to Pokemon GO! – those have been fun and keep it interesting. It makes me want to get out of the house and hunt down foundables to complete the stories. Where I live makes it hard, but when I was on vacation during an event, it was a lot easier and quicker for me!
The Harry Potter Theme
Speaking of the foundables, I have to admit, I love the Harry Potter theme. There are so many fun things in this for fans of the books and movies. From characters, to creatures, and even spells! Real Harry Potter fans will have a blast with this game! Even if they run out of energy quickly.
Overall, I LOVE this game! It is a lot of fun since I am a huge Harry Potter fan, and it is a great way to pass the time. I like opening up port-keys, battling familiar creatures, and of course, seeing friends like Harry, Luna, and Ron! It is also pretty awesome to see Severus Snape and Sirius Black as well (I used to have cats named after them).
If you are a Harry Potter fan, or even just an on-the-go gamer, Harry Potter Wizards Unite is a game for you!
