As if the world needed another reason to remain enthralled with Harry Potter, Warner Bros. today launched the first official Harry Potter App for iPhone and iPod Touch users to try their wand-waving hands at.
The App, dubbed Harry Potter Spells, runs for $4.99, and lets magic enthusiasts swing their iPhone back and forth, and in doing so, cast spells within the game.
The game lets you either passively conjure magic or actively and pugnaciously engage enemies in combat.
The game, according to its press release, starts the player off in the familiar Ollivander’s Wand Shop, where you’ll choose a wand (just hopefully not one with Phoenix feathers in it!).Then you’ll hop on the train to Hogwarts and the play out the oh so comical and amusing Sorting Hat routine. Hufflepuff!!!
And from there you’ll learn spells and put them to the test against formidable opponents.
As the resident Potter-nerd here, I’ll buy this App just to play out the scene embedded below. Be sure to check out the App’s official site as well, for more information.
