One of Qi’s highest rated games LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 has been magically updated overnight, courtesy of the staff of wizards over at Warner Bros.
In spite of the almost universal acclaim, the chart topping star of Qi’s recent Harry Potter apps rundown was in need of revamped controls, since a misplaced finger could obscure the onscreen Hogwarts action.
Well, that particular grievance has disappeared in a puff of smoke, with version 1.1 of the bespectacled sorcerer’s iPhone adventure deploying a virtual, non-intrusive D-pad for movement.
Good news, too, for owners of the – shall we say – more archaic iOS hardware, as the 44 levels comprising LEGO Harry Potter are now open and explorable to iPhone 3Gs and older generations of the iPod touch.
Based on the formative experiences of the adolescent spell binder at the witchcraft boarding school, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 invites players to visit iconic locations such as The Forbidden Forest, solving puzzles and mixing potions on the fly.
Gamezebo was keen to highlight the game’s incredible depth, noting that “there are hours upon hours of gameplay here. And every hour is going to be fun, challenging and absolutely wonderful.”
So, put down your broomstick and install LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 for £2.99 / $4.99 / €3.99.
