"This is the game to show your doubting friends as I don't believe a game of this depth or breadth presently exists on the App Store, and certainly not one with the care and attention that the Warner Bros. team have expended on it."(TouchArcade.com)

What's New in Version 2.4
Game Center Updates
Unfortunate waste of time and money.
I totally loved this app at first. Now I'm stuck at the boss battle for year two. I do what the game says and nothing happens. I'm supposed to kill a giant snake and the thing isn't dying. It doesn't even have a life bar to indicate if its stuffed any damage or not. I tried everything I could think of.
*****Note the game will not allow you to progress past the last saved point until you complete the game chapter you are in. Meaningful for me that I can't get any further in the game until I kill the stupid giant snake. *****
Of course when my efforts didnt work I came back here to the App Store to contact support. "Error unable to create new ticket." The e-form to contact support won't work for me. I'm already frustrated and now I'm thinking its convient that a paying customer literally can't complain because you can't contact support. I want my $5 back. Oh wait, can't get it because I can't contact the game makers.
Maybe the game will work for you on your device, but just in case it doesn't I suggest saving your money or spending it some where else.
Loved this game!
I loved nearly everything about this game. The opening screen is beautiful with the great sound track. Sometimes I will let the opening screen play for a while so I can admire the 360 view of Hogwarts Castle. The cut scenes are adorable. The scene where Harry returns from the graveyard with Cedric cracks me up every time.
I did have to do web searches several times to figure out how to find all hats and I did run across a glitch with the basilisk but I found this game to be just enough of a challenge for me. It entertained me and made me smile. Kudos to the programmers and designers who obviously put a lot of thought into this game. As for the game covering years 5-7 unless you enjoy playing with a joystick control on screen and a constantly changing angle of view as the character moves you may not want to buy the 2nd game.
What's the deal?
I LOVE this game. But now I'm in year 4 and I'm up against the dragon. In the level labeled "The first task" I'm running around dodging the dragon's fireballs and building barricades. Then towards the end the camera shows you the dragon's egg as if I'm supposed to get it. I CAN'T SEEM TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET IT. When I get on the broomstick and fly off the ramp it just makes me go to the next level. It never gives me a chance to get the egg. Am I supposed to get it or not? And there are no game guides for the iPhone/iPad version ANYWHERE. And After reading these reviews I can see why. YOU DEVELOPERS NEED TO FIX ALL THESE ISSUES OR QUIT CHARGING PEOPLE FOR IT! This is ANNOYING and FRUSTRATING! What's the point of us all writing reviews if you all are not going to listen? Or are you just going to keep posting fake reviews to keep your ratings high? Where is the justice?
