Looks like there’s a new Harry Potter game arriving to the mobile platform. Nope, it’s not another augmented reality game, but rather it’s a match-3 experience. Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is already available for iOS and Android devices. While the game is being distributed by Zynga, fans of the series can breathe a small sigh of relief in knowing that this one is officially licensed from Warner Bros. Games.

There’s also a bonus as those who download Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells for the next seven days get the Welcome Bundle which includes in-game gold, extra lives, and special Quidditch Goggles that can be used to customize the player’s avatars.

Puzzles & Spells makes good use of the Harry Potter franchise with its spells, colors, humor, and even characters. The game features the soundtrack, as well as voiceover recordings, of the original films so fans should be able to follow a rather genuine retelling of Harry Potter’s journey in the Wizarding World. These include Harry’s time on the Hogwarts Express and Hermione casting Wingardium LeviOsa (and not LevioSA!).

As players advance through Puzzles & Spells, they can earn spells and special boosts and experience some of the iconic figures of the series like Chocolate Frogs, Winged Keys, and even wizard chess pieces. Players also get to earn rewards by completing Daily Events that reference many moments in the series. Players can even join or form clubs with other players in order to socialize and collaborate on strategies. They can even share lives and fight for prizes in exclusive Club Events.

In a press statement, Zynga Senior Vice President of Games Yaron Leyvand shared that when the Harry Potter films were first released, it was one of those moments were everyone talked about the same movie. He added that that game manages to “honor fans’ connection to the series with a mobile game infused with the standout moments and delightful Wizarding World flourishes that have captivated a global following.” Leyvand went on to say that they actually had a soft launch of the game and the feedback “has been outstanding.”

Meanwhile, Zynga President of Publishing Bernard Kim said that mobile games are more popular than ever and people play mobile games for relaxation and entertainment. He also said that the game is sure to immerse fans “in the magic, puzzles, and wonder of the series and create Clubs to collaborate and connect with other fans of the Wizarding World.”
