Warner launches Harry Potter game on Apple Store

MUMBAI: Warner Bros. Digital Distribution has announced that the game Hatty Potter: Spells is now available on Apple Store.

The application, based on the Harry Potter films, will transform Muggles everywhere into fledgling wizards, casting spells at their opponents to stun them with Stupefy! or disarm them with Expelliarmus! This is is the only official Harry Potter game available on the Apple 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. 
Once students master their spells they can practice alone or challenge a friend to a duel. While players of different years may duel, be wary, as more advanced students will have a tactical advantage with a larger repertoire of spells – but novice students can still win based on their magical skills (more damage is done to an opponent with higher level spells and with well-cast spells, regardless of level). A duel concludes when one player‘s health meter is reduced to zero.
