J.K. Rowling provides Harry Potter lovers across the nation an insight into how the Book of Spells became the wizarding book of choice. In the video game Miranda Goshawk introduces the latest wizard how her book was written, the trick she played on her sisters and how the book has been translated into 72 different languages including gobbled gook.
Book of Spells allows the player to read, discover, learn and practise spells they already know and love, such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus (or smelly bananas as it is more fondly known in my house), along with discovering mischievous notes and spells scribbled into the margins by previous Hogwarts students, and humorous anecdotal facts relating to the spells.
This interactive game via the Wonderbook and Playstation Eye and Move motion controller allows the player to...
Select their own wand style and see it come to life in front of their eyes
|Select their house (excuse the dusty screen)|
You can also opt to join your game play up to any pre-existing Pottermore accounts
Boo Roo and Tigger Too's thoughts
I'm not sure who was more excited about test driving this game, Roo or myself. We are a household of Harry Potter fans so anything that gets us that bit closer to Hogwarts is bound to go down well.
A wonderful interactive game for all the family to enjoy, we can't wait to see if there will be more Wonderbook games available in the future.
