Experience Wizarding School With New Mobile Game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

Game developers Jam City have announced that next year they’ll be releasing a story-driven mobile narrative role-playing game, in which players can attend our favorite wizarding school Hogwarts as a student.

It’s called Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery and it’s the first mobile game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a student. Once you’ve settled into the school, your character can move through the years while doing all the same things Hogwarts students do: taking part in Duelling Club, for example, or going to classes such as Potions and Defence Against the Dark Arts. There’ll be faces you recognize, too, with many subjects taught by Professors you may already know and love (or know and dislike, depending on who they are…).

The game has been created by Los Angeles-based mobile games studio Jam City, and will be part of the Portkey Games label from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment – you can read more about Portkey here.

You can rest assured that when it comes to Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the clever tech bods at Jam City know the wizarding world like the backs of their hands. ‘As Harry Potter fanatics ourselves, we have great respect for the millions of people throughout the world who have followed the Harry Potter stories for more than 20 years,’ says Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City. ‘This game is a labour of love for our developers and artists, who are dedicated to creating the most magical entertainment and game play experience for everyone who adores J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.’

Adds David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment: ‘It is great to work with Jam City on the game, as the company has a proven track record of bringing rich, beloved worlds to players of mobile entertainment.’

The new Hogwarts terms start in September, but all we know at the moment is that Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be available at some point next year.

So, for more details on the game – which is for mobile devices via the App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore – go to the new Twitter or check out the game’s website.

These Simple Yet Addictive Games Will Keep You Entertained For Hours

There are so many video games out there in today’s market that are visually stunning and superbly complex. These games are often built around incredibly detailed environments and backed up with exceptional storylines and plots. However, for many modern and retro gamers alike, there’s something very comforting about playing a game that oozes unpretentiousness and simplicity. We’ve searched the internet high and low to uncover 4 such games but be warned, they’re highly addictive!

Mario Kart


There is a reason that there just so happens to be a version of’ Mario Kart’ available on pretty much every single console and gadget that Nintendo has ever released. This incredibly addictive little racer classic reflects Nintendo at its best; fun for all the family and simple enough for anyone and everyone to pick up. From the basics of Luigi Circuit to the frustrating difficulty of Rainbow Road, this is a game that has kept generations entertained for many, many years.



This classic Russian pastime is one of the simplest games ever created and for more than 30 years it has gripped many players around the world. Tetris is a tile-based puzzler than requires you to shift and drop various shapes into place in order to eliminate lines before you get overrun with the shapes and the construction mounts too high. What makes this game even better is its ability to be played on a diverse number of platforms ranging from consoles to smart watches and everything in between.



Whilst Tetris wet the appetite for building block games, modern-day construction amusement Minecraft has raised the stakes even further. The brain child of Swedish programmer Markus Persson, Minecraft was originally only developed as a sandbox game but grew in popularity and now exists across most major gaming platforms. Ask any fan and it’s much more than simply building structures using 3D blocks, it’s a chance to immerse yourself into a captivating world of mining, exploring and even combat.



Picture bingo and many people often visualize a game unfolding at a social club or church but you might be surprised to learn that actually bingo is quickly becoming one of the most popular mobile games in the country. Owing to the emergence and penetration of the smartphone, and the corresponding improvements in mobile gaming, there are now more variants of this classic number title and more new bingo sites in 2015 than ever before. Most apps allow you to play for free and in some versions cash prizes are up for grabs.
