We tried Harry Potter: Wizards Unite: huge, detailed and very complete

Almost 22 years ago J. K. Rowling released the first novel of Harry Potter, the Philosopher Stone. During this type since June 30, 1997 we have attended the publication of six more novels, we saw eight films released in the series, we have on the shelves other stories and feature films based on the Rowling universe and, how could it be another way, to consoles, computers and mobiles came a endless games with Harry Potter as the protagonist; or based on the character and his magical universe, as is the case with the last title that was released this week: Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

The developers of this game, which mixes action in the real physical plane with a story developed from scratch, are not strangers in the mobile landscape: Niantic, creator of Ingress and of Pokémon Go, use all the experience accumulated with the previous titles, in addition to technology, to develop Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in collaboration with Warner Bros. The result can now be played in Spain.

The premiere of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in Spanish territory came by surprise, just as Harry Potter himself knew his magical roots. They didn't bring the good news McGonagall and Dumbledore, but it didn't matter too much: the game is accessible in the Google Play Store with active maps at street level. We have walked mobile in hand to see how the game works and what you can expect from it.

First steps: confusion and the finding that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is immense

Draw a parallel with Pokémon Goeven with IngressIt is inevitable: not only is Niantic behind the last Harry Potter, it also shares the plans of previous games and takes advantage of the key points already created. In this way we will see taverns and greenhouses where the Poképaradas are, for example; and strengths in places where there is a Pokémon gym.

Enter for the first time in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite It involves facing the relevant tutorial. The game is not only to hunt magical creatures and defend against wizards and Death Eaters since the entire universe is super complex and difficult to understand at first. We will embody a newly incorporated wizard at Special Forces of the Statute of Secrecy to unravel a mystery: the Muggle world is plagued with Incontratus. We must walk mobile in hand identifying the objects, creatures, magicians … that lurk behind each corner.

It is not an easy game to understand given its complexity and number of elements

The tutorial from the beginning lets us see the immensity of the game. Augmented reality will be one of the keys, but it is also not essential: the fundamental thing is the exploration, as happened in the previous Niantic games. To encourage it, and maintain daily expectations, we will have many challenges, riddles, we must unravel the story behind the Incontratus, we can make friends with other magicians (with user codes) and, above all, will have to be constant.

Evolve in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite It is an arduous and progressive process. As our wizard evolves, he will have access to more spells and potions to face the adventure. This evolution is calculated in detail so that it is constant, challenging and not to despair. There will always be the option to move faster by improving inventory with real money, but it is not essential.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite not only invites to hunt magical creatures: it has a story that is gradually revealed

The magic secret could be revealed in the wake of a tragedy that stalks the world Muggle: the Incontratus They have been deployed and we must undo the mess using our magical abilities, wand in hand. The story is original and based on the universe created by J. K. Rowling. And it is gradually revealed as we move forward in the game.

The plot is revealed, as we said: we will find out everything that happens in the mouth of recognizable characters. Harry Potter, Hermione… will appear on the screen to gradually tell what is happening in the magical world and also in the Muggle world. It is an incentive to the pure and hard "farmeo" that Harry Potter becomes: Wizards Unite when advancing level and the game becomes somewhat monotonous.

Collecting is one of the keys to the game

If in Pokémon Go the key is to collect all Pokemon, in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite that collector spirit remains … multiplied by ten (at least). There are many elements to achieve throughout the real world; and this is exemplified in the form of stickers that we must paste into a kind of album divided into categories: register.

Exploration, challenges, mysteries and events, each of these categories is composed of objects, magical creatures and characters that will be revealed as we get stickers. These stickers are scattered throughout the world and will appear as a kind of emblem floating on the virtual plane.
