Here is the announcement of a new game for the iPhone.
As the new iPhone is more accessible I wonder if this game is too.
Harry Potter Spells is a game app that transforms your iPhone or iPod touch
into a magic wand. Once you have received your wand at Ollivanders you are
Sorted into one of the four houses at Hogwarts. From there you will be
taught how to cast spells. Once you feel that you are ready to duel,
challenge others to earn points for your specific house.
You start by learning how to cast all of your spells. Each spell is
represented by a specific gesture with your iPhone or iPod touch. There are
fourteen spells in the game, which is quite a lot to remember. One of the
main features of the app is the ability to duel other people. You can play
it single player as well against Artificial opponents.
The game will be available November 16th, 2009!
It will be available for purchase on the iTunes App Store.
Harry Potter: Spells will work on any iPhone or iPod touch with operating
system version 3.1 and above.
The game was in concept and development for over a year. We wanted to give
the player the ability to cast all of your favorite spells from the Harry
Potter books and films.
How can I learn to cast a spell?
Simply select "Learn" from the main menu, and you will be guided through the
list of spell lessons for learning the exact hand gestures you will need to
cast a spell. If you are having trouble you can visit the tutorial section
which will give you tips on how to hold the device.
Players have the best success if they perform the motion slowly and
accurately. Placing your thumb on the screen is important as it tells the
device when to start recording your hand motion. Once that hand-motion has
been performed, finish the spell by taking your thumb off the screen.
How do I challenge my friends to a duel?
Both players need to be in the same room and both must have purchased the
game. You can only play Multi-Player via Bluetooth or on the same Wi-Fi
hotspot. It is not possible to duel through the internet. We recommend
players stand within 15 feet of each other.
1. Both players must select "Duel" from the main menu
2. Both players must then select "Multi-Player"
3. Both players must choose the same option - "Nearby"(Bluetooth) or
4. Follow onscreen instructions.
What are the hand gestures for each of the Spells?
Visit the "Practice" section from the main menu and you will see a Spell
Chart in the background. Note: You can also turn this Spell Chart on while
dueling by selecting Spell Chart from the pause menu.
You can record your voice! Select "Learn" from the main menu. Once you have
selected a spell, press the "Record Voice" and follow the onscreen
instructions. You can replace all the pre-recorded spell casting voices in
the game with your own voice.
Harry Potter: Spells was developed by Mikoishi. It was produced by Nathan
Feldman at Warner Bros.
