This is a game that combines several styles, with the RPG as the main type to adventure, action, and a bit of sport, if we take into account the quidditch, so we must be attentive to everything that happens in the story. Jam City, the company responsible for the development, offers us the possibility of entering a magical world before the entrance of Harry Potter.

In Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery, we can create our own wizard who must live and study together with other students at the school of wizardry. We will have to choose the house we like the most from Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin.

And above all, you have to be patient, since as it takes place in a magic school, every year is different and some events that cannot be skipped. Like any other progressive game, we must progress through the story to level up our character.

The game offers a system of missions that we must take, and where each mission will have a cost and a reward. We must be attentive to these costs as they are a fundamental part of the game.

Some other points that we must take into account will be found in the development of our character and its equipment, and they are represented in the following elements:


The energy will help us progress through the game. It is obtained by completing missions or buying it with gems. We must bear in mind that every action we perform consumes energy.

Level or stats points

Since this is a role-playing game, our character will level up, and the higher the level, we will be able to perform actions that could not be done before.

Gold coins

There are two types of coins in the game. We will be able to spend them on different features, such as customizable items for our character.


Gems are the first level currency, and with them, we will be able to buy other game improvements such as energy. We can get them as a reward if we fulfill objectives such as making friends, completing missions, or winning the House Cup. Another way to get gems is to buy them with real money.

House points

Although it is not essential to advance in the game, winning the House Cup will bring us 100 free gems at the end of the school year. To win it, we have to get the house we have chosen to be the one that obtains the most points.

There is another concept in Hogwarts Mystery that is not quantifiable, and it is friendship, making friends, and interacting with other characters that will help us progress through the game. Answering correctly the questions asked by other characters is the key to develop our character correctly and being able to advance in the story.
