Just because the HARRY POTTER series has come to a close doesn’t mean that the boy wizard is gone for good. LEGO and Apple have teamed up to create LEGO HARRY POTTER: YEARS 5-7. Harry and his entire world are literally right at your fingertips with this new game available in the App Store for iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches!
The game allows players to come with Harry on his journey through his last few years at Hogwarts. Cast spells, face new challenges, duel witches and wizards and defeat the evil Lord Voldemort. You can play as multiple characters and explore locations from the books like Grimmauld Place, Godric’s Hollow, Diagon Alley, the Ministry of Magic and, of course, Hogwarts castle.
The Dueling Club expansion allows fans to hone their magical dueling skills by learning new spells and facing characters from the series, like Severus Snape, Voldemort and Draco Malfoy.
LEGO HARRY POTTER: YEARS 5-7 is available at the App Store for $4.99. The game is a great way to kill time while en route to your summer vacation destination. It brings the best of the HARRY POTTER video games and touch screen features to create a fantastic game that’s the closest us Muggles will ever get to entering the wizarding world!
