Description

From the makers of Pokémon GO, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the real-world augmented reality (AR) game inspired by the Wizarding World that puts magic in the hands of players worldwide. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is co-developed and co-published by Niantic, Inc. and WB Games San Francisco as part of Portkey Games, a label dedicated to creating new Wizarding World mobile and video games inspired by J.K. Rowling's original stories that place players at the center of their own adventure. Realize Your Wizarding Potential A calamity has befallen the wizarding world, causing Foundables—magical artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories—to mysteriously appear in the Muggle world. As a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, you’ll work with witches and wizards from across the globe to solve the mystery of The Calamity and keep magic safe from Muggle eyes. The Magic Is All Around You As you step outside and explore the world, the Map will reveal Traces of magic that indicate the location of Foundables. These Traces are found at various real-world locations and trigger richly detailed 3D encounters in full 360-degree advanced AR. You’ll need to cast a variety of spells to defeat the confounding magic surrounding the Foundables in order to safely return them to the wizarding world. Keep an eye out for other things that will aid you on your journey including Inns that replenish Spell Energy, ingredients that can be used to brew potions, and even Portkeys that can whisk you away to iconic wizarding world locations. Stronger United Gather your friends to take on even bigger magical feats such as Wizarding Challenges, real-time cooperative multiplayer battles against dangerous foes. To overcome the stronger threats and discover rarer Foundables, you’ll need to team up and strategize with your fellow witches and wizards and specialize in different magical Professions—Auror, Magizoologist, and Professor—that each have their own unique skills and abilities that come in handy at different times. Ready your wand, alert your friends, and be ready to protect the wizarding world from a global calamity. Your Wizarding adventure awaits! Stay tuned for the latest at WizardsUnite.com

    While the game boasts better graphics and a better story line than Pokémon Go, the gameplay itself is stunted by the company’s blatant cash grab off of nostalgia. In order to play, you need energy which you can buy, or stop at an inn or greenhouse and hope for the best. This also counts for wizard tournaments, in which case, the game will cut you off mid-fight as soon as you run out of energy. Similarly, in the case of ingredients used for potions, the inventory fills up almost immediately. Of course, you’re prompted to buy more space, as brewing potions doesn’t clear up space in your inventory and can cost you due to missing ingredients which -you guessed it- are for sale. To get to the point, the game isn’t designed with the player in mind; the game is designed to make money at the expense of players and specifically targets players with addictive personalities. If you have literal cash to burn and nothing better to spend it on, this could be the game for you. If you’re looking for nostalgia, stick to the books and films.
  • I enjoy playing but...

    As others have said, energy is an issue. -the app crashes constantly! The worst times are when I’ve just captured a foundable and the app freezes and I don’t get credit for it because I have to restart the app. - on average, In one hour gameplay the app crashes 10-15 times, and submitting a “bug“ is annoying because you have to go through a chatbot that leads to the standard “have you tried restarting the app?? Etc” before you can actually submit the bug. Would be much easier if the app could collect analytics and crash logs that can be automatically sent to developers. -I live in Austin so finding inns, greenhouses and fortresses isn’t too hard, but my issue is the way they’re dispersed. There are some parts of town that have 10+ inns concentrated on a single block, some are basically right on top of each other, but other parts of town (most noticeably, the east side) have 1 or 2 inns/greenhouses in a 10 block stretch! Does downtown really need 4 inns on every corner? -Seeing the same. Exact. Foundables. Every time. I’ve just about reached gold level prestige on the Hogwarts students page in my registry and honestly, I’m about ready to let that slytherin girl live the rest of her life as a ferret. -casting a “masterful” spell should be an automatic win. ESPECIALLY when I used a potion to keep it from departing ON TOP OF an Extulmo-something potion. -more profession scrolls! And more ways to collect restricted books. Currently they can only be collected during special events, and the max you were able to collect was 15. With only one event those so far, it’s going to take months to complete the lessons requiring RS books. -150 coins to increase vault capacity by 10?! That’s ridiculously out of proportion to the amount of honey water I’m picking up on a daily basis. -why can only ONE item be planted at a greenhouse at time?! Especially if there is only one GH for an entire section of town. What’s the point of picking up 50+ seed packets a day if they have no where to go?

    I actually really like this game. At first I kinda didn’t want to get into cause it didn’t seem fun, but now I can’t stop playing it. The only thing that would be awesome to me is if they automatically counted my steps like Pokémon go does because then I’d be able to open up the port keys instead of having the app open in order to do that. If they can fix that and add it to the game where they can automatically count the amount of walking we can do it would make the game a lot easier to manage. I can’t have the game playing on in the background while I’m at work. If the game automatically counted the steps for me, when I go on my break, or when I get off work I can check my steps and open up the port keys. That would be one of my only suggestions.
  • Don’t live in downtown? Forget about it!

    Once again, Niantic has created a game that is completely unplayable if you don’t live in a downtown area in a major metropolitan population center. Want to play while riding the bus, or subway or as a passenger on a road trip, forget it. Niantic has added stupid animation sequences that require you to be stationary for 5-10 seconds...far longer than a moving vehicle stays in range. Also, get used to everything “departing” when you get too far away. The game will allow you to spend all kinds of magic energy in the attempt, but never allow you to actually catch anything. Either it “departs” or the game locks up...but in both situations, only *after you’ve wasted spell energy. One might think Niantic was being socially responsible by crippling their game when moving too fast. They will claim BS reasons pertaining to player safety. Clearly, they don’t want anybody playing the game while in any sort of moving vehicle...driver or not. Interestingly enough, however, the ability to spend money is NEVER disabled...even while driving. Strange, no? What about player safety? Or do you just care about causing players to waste resources in hopes of them spending money? Classic scam.

    Hey add me while you are here 5018 6675 4557 Obviously they are some issues. Like with Pokémon Go you can Adventure Sync so you don’t need the app open to make progress on your eggs. It will help out a lot with with the portkeys on this app. Also maybe like a spell energy refresher. That would be amazing!

    super addicting game. was excited to play in mexico, but it didnt recognize that i was in a different country so i didn't get any extra mission credits (big bummer!!) i was on LTE network and the game was working perfectly fine but during a portkey challenge the connection crapped out and I lost the items and XP earned!!! giving two stars because im a fan, however, im disappointed at my losses :(
  • I want to love this game.

    By Cut rope fanatic
    Harry Potter is the only potential option that could be better than Pokémon Go. This has the potential but it’s soo confusing! Also please allow for Apple Watch or adventure sync to track steps. Clarifying use of objects and rules will be awesome or make it less need to do so much.

  • Lack of Energy Regen Ruins It

    1
    By Diango the Killer
    Would be a great game if energy naturally regenerated like literally every other game. The Inn’s are a cute idea, but don’t give you nearly enough, the cash option doesn’t even fully refill it for $1 and since you burn through energy doing basically anything, well like the title says, straight up ruins this game for me and I will not spend a single cent on it until they fix this pathetic attempt at cash grabbing.

    There are too many things to track and inventory is very expensive. It’s unclear what you are doing in the game. Hardly any sharing about your character, even with friends. I strongly recommend Pokémon GO and tepidly recommend this game. Unpolished.

    By BusyMommy529
    The game is enjoyable, but all too often, the lack of sources for spell energy make it feel much too money-grabbing. I’m left to play very casually until this is improved. I won’t spend any more money on it until this aspect is improved. Also, it seems that too many factors are only obtainable through group play, which seems kind of cruel this early in its life, as few people are available and high level, making it difficult to impossible to coordinate to try these features.

    This game freezes often and they make it hard to do anything with out spending money. They need to switch up the creatures you find save as well, I work live & hangout in different areas and it’s always the same confundables...
  • Amazing game!

    This game is better done than Pokémon go in my opinion, and is more polished and immersive. It’s everything I could hope for, except for a small bit of micro transactions impinging on my playing. Needing coins to upgrade ingredient storage is a bit bothersome. As far as I can tell, you can only get them through leveling up or purchasing, which is the only thing stopping it from being a 5 star review. The pokestop equivalents are very well done! You get spell energy from inns, not a lot else to say there. Greenhouses encourage teamwork, and allow you to grow your own potion ingredients. Others can also spend spell energy to increase the plant yield for everyone, a nice mechanic. Overall, a great game worth playing.
  • Port keys don’t work.

    I mowed my 1 acre yard with a push mower and I only had .25 KM to go to open the port key. By the time I was done I still had .1 KM to go.
  • Why do you keep changing my notifications!!!!

    By chris.kraus91
    Over and over and over I set all three categories for notifications to off. Yet 12PM roles around and i get a daily reminder. Every time i’ve checked all notifications are switched back to on. Shady Niantic. You’ve now completely lost me on this game.

    this is the game I’ve been waiting for. Love it! As it is in its infancy, there are still some kinks to work out. *Glitches: I’m walking and all of a sudden, it says I’m going too fast. I’m no Flash, so this shouldn’t be happening. Also, for reals the foundables shouldn’t disappear as freaking much, I don’t care how rare or unrare they are. Sometimes portkeys aren’t unlocked no matter how much I walk, it can show no progress even after a couple of miles (other times it’s fine). Fortresses: Seriously, awesome except you should regenerate health and spell energy by defeating foes. Like “oh you beat that nasty foe? How about like 10 or 50 spell energy in return?!” Overall: You should be able to request inns/fortresses; it would help those of us witches and wizards who have nothing/next to nothing near by. I get that micro-transactions are the currency of the digital age, but you’re lame for assuming that Harry Potter fans are going to be “buy in” to your “ridikulus” ways. A remedy?: You should be able to earn increased capacities (spell energy/vault storage) as you collect foundables and win challenges. Not to mention, the extra bonuses should grant more extra spell energy/books/coins, ^^^^If you can’t do this, at least make the cost of your increase in capacity and/or buying more energy/ingredients/etc less capitalistic. Oh, and find a way to fix power drain. I get there’s a ton of stuff in here, but I’m sure there’s some magical coding to produce a little love for my phones processor. This is all, until the next update. I shall visit you again.

    By sunturpa
    Harry Potter game is packed with lots of content, but if you’re looking for a game similar to Pokémon go where you can play as you go for a brisk walk, this is not the one. The animations are really really long and you can’t skip all of them.

    By Lynnica
    I love this game because it’s Harry Potter and there is so much nostalgia! I love pretending that I’m helping the Ministry. So nerdy, but so fun. BUT there are things that would improve play. I get the point is to get you out and exploring the world, but I don’t always get a chance to do that with working two jobs and my 1.5 year old. So being able to do some sort of task or play a game to increase spell energy would be helpful. And my biggest critique. Pokémon Go has the ability to link with your Health app so eggs hatch based on how much you are actually walking and not just how much you walk with the app open. 1) it’s hard to remember to always open the app when I’m walking and 2) that is a crazy drain on battery life. They should do the same thing with the Portkeys.... Also, we may not be Hogwarts students, but I’d love being able to get a wizarding world companion/pet.

    Why do I have to turn off notifications every single day? I turned them off and by the next day they’ve turned them selves back on. I find that very irritating. Please fix this issue and I will adjust my rating.
  • Fun, but too reliant on micro-transactions

    2
    By WaterDummy
    The game has a lot more in-depth mechanics than Pokémon Go; but the game is far too reliant on micro-transactions and the pricing is far too steep. As others have suggested, Niantic needs to take a step back and adjust how the gameplay is handled and especially focus on how energy is filled.
  • Super fun!!! But need more inns in game

    By This is why I drink
    I am really enjoying this game and there’s so much to do!! But I live in a big suburb and there are very few inns. Luckily I live next to one of the few, otherwise I would not be able to play. If there were more inns, I would be playing constantly because I love it so much!

    By hmk2490
    So far I love it! But the price to refill spell energy or to expand storages is ridiculous. 150 gold to get 10 extra spots? And only 5 for water and seeds? And then when you do go out and try to replenish energy without spending money you get a few energy for each inn you go to. And potions take FOREVER to make without spending money and it’s hard to collect ingredients because, you guessed it, no storage space!

    This game is just so magical! It took a bit to understand it all. I do g like how you unlock explanations of certain things after you’ve been doing them. You kinda have to shoot blind for a bit. But overall things aren’t too difficult to figure out and it is so much fun walking around doing magic!!! And I love that since I grew up with Harry Potter it’s not just while he was at Hogwarts. It’s where he’d be now. It’s wonderful!!
  • Software Glitch Not Getting Fixed

    By Sheltonz
    I purchased a kit when I first downloaded the app that seemed like a good deal. When it appeared that I could purchase it again, I clicked on it. It glitched my (and many others’) account and I can no longer buy anything with either my (already acquired) coins or with real money. I’m now unable to do anything in the game so I’m dead in the water. They have been “working on a fix” for nearly a month now with no success. DON’T waste your time or money on them because they don’t care about the customer!!! 🤬

    Needs some updates! Keeps crashing when I quickly close muy registry and go back to the map. I hate that the map keeps auto rotating to my current direction I'm facing. I want to put the map where I want it and keep it there. No full energy when we level up? Really? That cheap? Been to another country and played, didn't get the achievement. I absolutely love playing, don't get me wrong, but it's still new and needs improvements. 💘

    This is a really fun game. Well done and enjoyable to play. Well worth downloading and spending time on. If the devs want it to last years there are some big issues to be solved flee rates, pay walls, etc. But in early days definitely give this game a try.

    By Welcome back!
    I just started to play this game again after not playing it for a while and am very disappointed with the quality. From the almost constant crashes to it not saving the progress I made (for example: I completed the duel in the first date side quest last night, closed the game since I had to wait 5 hours for the next task, opened it back up this morning and was in the middle of the duel and now have to wait 5 more hours), I am sad to say that the game is basically unplayable for me.
  • Not an impressive start

    1
    By Zazeir
    I have an iPhone X brand new and this game crashes frequently just moving between the different screens. It has also locked up multiple times while I am trying to catch a Unicorn to complete the special mission and this of course waste my potions and energy but I don’t get the points for the catch. The energy is a handful. If you don’t live in a city then prepare to have 1 inn you can actually go to and then with the battle system and some of the catches you will have to drop money. I have spent about $50 to really give the game a try and sadly I’m far from impressed after such a wait. If they handled the crashes and made it so the money I do spend doesn’t get wasted when the game locks up I might bump this to a 3..... (Updated down to a 1 since I am crashing more and more on iPhone X) Hold off on spending any actual money till they have an idea what they want to do with this game.

    I had a lot of fun with this game, but I just spent 100 coins for 50 spells energy by accident, thanks to an intrusive screen when you run out of energy. Deleting it now.
