Attention all witches and wizards!
There’s a new magical experience waiting for you on your mobile device. Players worldwide can now download Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, the latest Harry Potter mobile game under the Portkey Games label.
Developed by Zynga, this Match-3 game will delight Harry Potter fans of all ages. Check out the new Puzzles & Spells trailer!
Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells
Wizards Unite Hub has previously reported on Puzzles & Spells, so this game overview will be brief.
In Puzzles & Spells, players begin a Match-3 adventure filled with the spells, humor, color, and characters of the Harry Potter series. Featuring the soundtrack and voiceover recordings from the original Harry Potter films, this new Harry Potter mobile game will give fans the opportunity to follow an authentic retelling of Harry’s journey through the Wizarding World.
A new Match-3 mobile game
If you’re not familiar with the Match-3 genre, the overall game style is simple. It’s a specific type of tile-matching video game in which players must manipulate tiles so that 3 or more identical ones end up connected in a row. Popular Match-3 games include Bejeweled and Candy Crush.
Earning spells and special boosts as they advance, players solve Match-3 puzzles populated with the following fun details:
- hopping Chocolate Frogs
- fluttering Winged Keys
- battling wizard chess pieces
- other unexpected obstacles and objects!
Between colorful puzzles, players will enjoy iconic moments from the Harry Potter stories. These include:
- Harry’s journey on the Hogwarts Express
- Hagrid’s magical creatures
- Hermione casting the Wingardium Leviosa spell
These Harry Potter details will help Puzzles & Spells distinguish itself from other Match-3 mobile games on the market.
“When the Harry Potter series first came to theatres, it was one of those rare moments when everyone was reading the same book, talking about the same film and coming together around a shared experience,” said Yaron Leyvand, Senior Vice President of Games at Zynga.
“Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells honours fans’ connection to the series with a mobile game infused with the standout moments and delightful Wizarding World flourishes that have captivated a global following. The feedback from soft-launch has been outstanding, and we can’t wait for fans around the world to play.”

Final thoughts on Puzzles & Spells
As mentioned in yesterday’s post on Hogwarts Legacy, Wizards Unite Hub does occasionally cover other Harry Potter topics, particularly Harry Potter mobile games. While I don’t anticipate writing any extensive game guides, you can expect the occasional news update.
