While we were all deeply saddened by the death of Robbie Coltrane, ‘Rubeus Hagrid’ in the Harry Potter films, his likeness and voice remained in this game. On a good day, my solving four Forbidden Forest puzzles, all of the professors puzzles, and the club challenge, got me an MVP tag. This only happened one time in the Harry Potter Puzzles and Spells game.
As a player progresses in the game, the challenges become harder. It helps to have access to boosts like the magic bag, power surge, the bomb and the winged key. Mix the magic bag with either the power surge or the bomb and this will cover most, if not all, of the obstacles in the puzzle. Mixed with the winged key, it changes them to rainbow colors and helps get rid of the most difficult parts. The bomb amplifies the explosion from a power surge and is also carried by the winged key to help with the hard parts.
I like these six characters because they help the players:
- Harry Potter
- Ron Weasley
- Hermione Granger
- Rubeus Hagrid
- Professor Dumbledore
Getting them to the bottom of the puzzle to receive their help can be a problem, especially when mixed with foes like:
- memory balls
- Devil’s Snare
This player has never used the cheat sheets that exist online because cheaters never prosper. That’s why it’s a challenge trying to solve difficult puzzles. It’s still fun though. Play the game to see how the helpers work.
