Duels are fought through a mini-game where your wand moves over different points on the screen and you need to hit the button at the right time to cast the spell. Each time you mess up the timing, the spell diminishes and won’t cause as much damage. For a mobile game, the graphics are nicely done in a 2D environment. There are two levels of difficulty and you have the option to play the duels as a mini-game rather than go through the dialogue of the actual game.
This game is mostly there to pass the time if you’re waiting around doing nothing. It reminds me of the old adventure PC games, but there really isn’t much to do except to play the duels. All it involves is pressing a button when the wand aligns with the spell.
Depending on the provider, the game starts at $3.99 and players will have access to personalized content based on the book and film such as ringtones, wallpapers and ringback tones. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be available from major wireless carriers in the US and Europe in June.
