Was not worth waiting. Very hard to play without spending money. And with spending money it’s still hard. Gameplay is dumb: you just tap and tap and tap until energy run out. Then, after an hour of recharge, you tap again.

Yup. Very disappointing, gameplay revolves around clicking and little more. Timers force you to spend money to progress at a decent rate.

Don't know if this game requires top notch internet or it is unpolished, but load times are insane, and really glitchy at times, I couldn't even beat the tutorial.

I'll bite, you DL'd the FREE game and immediately were asked for money so you threw money at it THEN realized it was F2P eh?

This is going to be one of them games, you login, tap-tap-tap until your energy runs out, then walk away for a few hours.

The story is meh. Everything character-wise is locked behind gold/gems (2 unnecessary coin types).

Within 10-15 minutes of booting up, you get to experience the first "wait" in the middle of the "fight".

Decent notes, seems like there's lots of interesting things to see (eventually) and the way it's designed allows for expansion.

Overall I give it 5 meh's out of 10. Normal F2P trash that I'll dabble with before getting bored and not giving anyone a cent.

It sure looks like Harry Potter is still popular. As soon as it came out of the official version, more than 40,000 users left the comment rating. (based on US App Store).

There are more things in heaven and earth.

I'm in love with the game. I'm really sure that if the game would be paid there will the same complaints... Don't be dumb

Warner Bros can afford buying that much reviews
