MUMBAI: Warner Bros. Digital Distribution has launched the first official Harry Potter game on the App Store.
Harry Potter: Spells App is based on the Harry Potter films and will transform Muggles everywhere into fledgling wizards, casting spells at their opponents to stun them with Stupefy! or disarm them with Expelliarmus! The Harry Potter: Spells App is the only official Harry Potter game available on the App Store.
Beginning with an arsenal of 14 spells, wizards-in-training can conjure magic alone or duel others by casting spells from one device to another using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connections. After receiving an official invitation to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, students will make the ceremonial visit to Ollivanders wand shop, where the wand destined for them will then choose its new master. Players are then introduced to the legendary Sorting Hat and placed into one of four houses (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin). Next, it’s time to begin wizard training in the Spell Tutorial where players learn the specific hand gestures to cast each spell. Once a spell is mastered it can be used in a duel.
The Harry Potter: Spells App is available for $4.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch. The app was developed in association with Mikoishi.
