Me and my friend came to the…outdoors to play a game that lets me fulfill my dreams of hunting dark wizards. Although, annoyingly, I don’t even get to use this. Harry Potter Wizards Unite is essentially Pokemon Go but Harry Potter. Now that pitch is basically all I needed to hear before becoming completely obsessed with it. But if you need some more convincing, here’s how it works.
Like Pokemon Go, Wizards Unite is a location-based collection game. Where your position in the muggle world dictates which characters or objects from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter you can collect. Instead of throwing Pokeballs, various spells are used by drawing the corresponding shape on the screen. The quicker and more accurate the spellcast is, the more likely the “confoundable” is to be captured.
