Default Hogwarts Mystery Likes and Dislikes

Hogwarts Mystery, likes and dislikes


With every game comes exciting things and possibly things that you feel could be better. As you have gone through the start of the game to moving up through the levels, what have you found that has worked for you and that you have really enjoyed? What parts of the game have frustrated you and made you think maybe you need to put down your phone?

Here is the place to come together and tell each other what you love about the game and what you don't love. What parts are the best and what do they really need to work on? Bonus points if you've got ideas about what you'd like to see included in the future!

Remember, all SS rules apply!

having just gone back to playing this game, i'll start with what i DISlike about it: the fact that it still guzzles up energy for every single activity to do on here, and that it overheats my device like crazy (which contributes to wearing it out faster yikes). all this time away from the game i'd think they'd have addressed those crucial gameplay issues by now but oh well... guess not.

what i DO like about it is its Hogwarts come to life, and its as close as I'm ever gonna get to actually being a Wizarding World character yeah the Hogwarts map layout is nowhere near how Hogwarts is actually laid out in the books, but i'm willing to give them a pass on that with how much hey-i'm-an-actual-Hogwartian feeling i always get whenever i play it.

I actually feel the same way. I can't get into it, because of the energy thing. I don't have time to wait for the energy to come back and I'm not spending money on a phone game. I think if they wouldn't waste your energy just for looking at a friend it could be more fun.

The energy thing is so annoying!
I played up to the part where my character gets stuck in Devil's Snare. That's when it got so annoying that I uninstalled it.

I was pretty excited cos the story line looked really intriguing and the graphics seemed very real, so good that it had an awesome Hogwarts-y feel to it!

But the energy thing. AARGHH!!

I concur about the energy usage, it takes around 2 hours waiting for it to fill back up without spending gems / real money. Which then makes it difficult to manage time on when to complete the lessons. Speaking of lessons, it is also annoying as you progress through the years the requirements on the amount of stars needed to unlock the 'real' lesson is also time consuming.

Oh.. and then there's the side quests, while I loved the Animagus quest where your character can be one in their third year (mine got to be a Crup) the time limit to complete it (3 days) was a bit nerve wracking especially tying in with waiting on the energy points to replenish to continue on with the quest. I guess it really all ties back to the energy points being the issue, they should replenish much faster. Maybe 1 point per minute instead of every four minutes would be much better.

What I do like however is the story, character customizing, and they how explored a bit with the personalities of the other characters (Bill, Charlie, Tonks for example) when they were at Hogwarts. Tonks being a pure rebel as a Hufflepuff really amuses me since us Hufflepuffs usually get the reputation of only being goodie-goodies. She even shot a curse at the Librarian in one scene! My character right now is a few parts from completing his fourth year and it'd be interesting to see what else is in store when they had sixth and seventh year.

I agree the energy thing is annoying - but I've been playing games like that for years and it doesn't bother me all that much given I'm quite happy just to play for five minutes then switch to a different game lol. This is one of those 'waiting for the bus' type games to me. My favourite part is all the new information that we get -whether we choose to accept it as canon or not, its potential fun RP fodder after all XD

I just find it harder to stay interested in the game, which I hate, because I really did want to play it and wanted to enjoy it. With the kids though and work, if I'm in a lesson and run out of energy and have so many hours to get it done I always end up not able to get back on until the hours are complete. So I've been stuck on the same level for a long time.

I do enjoy the interactions and the information.

I'm not terribly bothered by the energy thing even if it is annoying... although one thing that is annoying is the small quests that are time sensitive, like you have two days to earn X points

Also, certain quests irk me too like the prefect quest being available before fourth year. Personally i did that in my fourth year so in my fifth year i was made prefect but occasionally i was seeing second years with prefect badges and yea same with the animagus quest (i became a bird) and it was cool and all but also messing with it being considered an advanced skill and yet fourth years and younger mastered it?

The storyline and plot stuff is super cute though and i guess part of what keeps me playing is that i want to know more (even if i feel like i have some idea already where it might be leading)

I agree with everyone saying that enegry usage is a pain. It isn’t TOO annoying for me, but it gets kind of frustrating during time limited activities where you have to keep burning energy just to do simple things. Half the time I run out of time on the tasks, because I need wait for my energy to restore, and then forget all about it or get busy with other things.

That said, I still enjoy the game. I haven’t gotten too far into it and am still in my First Year, but I enjoy the experience of playing a Hogwarts student. It is fun, but I havent played it in a few weeks since I was busy getting ready for Christmas.

Do any of you guys still play this? I just want to know how it ends.

I've stuck with it this long (about to start Year 6, finally) so I'd like to learn the conclusion!

Likes: Ok story.... meeting class characters while they're young.... and pets?

Dislikes: Energy system, 57 currencies, not a lot of consequences based on choices, lame hairstyles, constant events, dragging out the chapters, pranks are boring, etc.

They've only released a up to a few chapters of year 6, so that's as far as anyone can go for now. I actually started over due to being bored over slow chapter releases, so I'm back on year one. lol I'm like you--I really want to know how it ends!

Likes: The story is really interesting and as far as I can tell, well thought-out!

Dislikes: The pets are too expensive, the quests have to be played 24/7 or you run out of time, and the outfits are hairstyles are hideous, just to name a few.

I do wish you could choose to get randomly sorted!

That would be a fun feature!

I've been taking my time on Year 6.... the reddit has been really helpful for hints for this game, if you're back at year 1 haha.

The cool thing about Year 6 is that

SPOILER!!: Year 6
You get to meet Fred, George, and Trelawney, and the chapters are being released sooner!


That's about all so far. At least the current event (the one with the tiles) is better than the ones with House Pride.

I just completed year 3. I really enjoy the story line, very intriguing, but agreed with everyone the energy thing!

I mean I understand having to earn energy back or everyone would be done playing it in a week and they would have no opportunity for people to spend real money on a game, but 4 minuets for 1 energy point is a long time, I wish it were 1/2 that. 2 minuets seems more reasonable. I played for a while about a year ago and had to get a new phone so all my progress was lost (my fault for not having it backed up anywhere and was annoyed just recently started playing again, was hoping the energy would be different .. no dice).
