<p>The dream of being a witch or wizard at Hogwarts is still alive for many, it seems. Just look at the hype surrounding Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, which will let you be your own custom character and live a full school life at the school.</p><p>Sweet, right? Well, Jam City dropped a new trailer for the game yesterday, and the reaction so far has been, well, mixed to say the least.</p><p>On the one hand, Twitter has been ablaze with hyperbole as expectant fans clamour for a release:</p><p>WHAT UGYVGsgvuvguswvvu8 I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW— Jess | Shawn? (@JessicaxLamb) March 2, 2018 <p>Hogwarts Mystery game is going to consume my life wow amazing— Mon Petit (@slamcef) March 2, 2018<p><p>I’m so excited for this Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery game! ??? I’m ready to live my Slytherin lifestyle ?? and live in my room, or should I say Slytherin dorm literally for forever. @HogwartsMystery— ???????????? ?? (@HarmanPadda_) March 2, 2018And to be fair to them, that trailer does have a lot going for it. We found at least five cool things teased within, including the fact that you can choose your own House, and might even get into some romantic entanglements.</p><p>But not everyone is a fan of the fact that the Sorting Hat is taking a backseat role this time around:</p><p><p>My only issue with the new #HarryPotter mobile game @HogwartsMystery a player should not be able to choose their house. What ever happened to getting a proper sorting!?— Mr. Moe (@MunsterMoe) March 2, 2018 Others took issue with the free-to-play trappings, in particular the energy system:</p><p><p>My only complaint about @HogwartsMystery is the STUPID ENERGY SYSTEM!! I'd like to be able to finish a task without waiting for energy pls?! Thanks! Other than that, great!— Kayla (@AcousticArtist1) March 2, 2018 And some fans have already got their hands on the game, though they don't have particularly nice things to say about it:</p><p>everyone hyping harry potter:hogwarts mystery is gonna be so disappointed IT WAS SO BAD I DIDNT EVEN FINISH THE FIRST YEAR ASDFGHJKL it was nothing like what we wanted— Minh!1!1 (@minhnimumpoint) March 2, 2018<p><p>Got into the beta test for HP Hogwarts Mystery btw and it's so awfully dull. I've seen fanmade games that were way better. 50% hype, 20% energy system, 20% bad OCs and 10% just trying to make some cash off the franchise— Ren (@alcoholicrevo) March 1, 2018 Of course, any free-to-play game using a big brand is bound to have its detractors, so there's still a chance that it won't be as bad as some people are saying… right?</p><p>Ultimately, it looks like Twitter user Gabriel Bergmoser has summed up the entire game in just one sentence:</p><p><p>Well, that Hogwarts Mystery game looks straight up atrocious and I'm straight up downloading it.— Gabriel Bergmoser (@gobergmoser) March 2, 2018 Ah well. We won't know for sure how good the game is until it actually launches, so keep an eye out for our own opinions in the near future.</p><p>Of course, Harry Potter fans can also look forward to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite launching at some point this year, which will provide a Pokemon GO spin on the magical franchise.</p><p>Is it really wise to release two games using the same huge franchise in one year? Well, we think it could be.</p>
<p>Time is limited. Apps are plentiful.</p><p>How can you make sense of the ever-increasing number of new games in the App Store? Well, by reading Pocket Gamer, of course. But we can't possibly cover everything, and there are some games that just don't fit in our wheelhouse.</p><p>Thankfully, our friends over at 148Apps are here to save the day. Take a look at some of the casual games that have caught the attention of the 148Apps team…</p><p>Mahjong JourneyBy G5 Entertainment</p><p>"Aimed at the more laid back gamer, Mahjong Journey isn't for everyone, but those looking for some classic solitaire action will be happy." (Jennifer Allen)</p><p>Creatures Such As WeBy Choice of Games</p><p>"Taking a more sedate approach to interactive fiction, Creatures Such As We proves to be quite thought provoking." (Jennifer Allen)</p><p>Crusaders QuestBy NHN Entertainment</p><p>"Hire as many heroes as possible in this fun at first but grind-heavy freemium RPG." (Jennifer Allen)</p><p>Sneaky SneakyBy Naiad Entertainment</p><p>"This stealth game combines real-time and turn-based action into a winning formula." (Campbell Bird)</p><p>PolyformBy DeNA</p><p>"Polyform is an easily-digestible puzzle game that has few surprises, but is enjoyable nonetheless." (Nadia Oxford)</p><p>Super Drop JamBy Gabriel Carter</p><p>"Match up corresponding numbered tiles and quickly in this fun, if sometimes too simple, score chaser." (Jennifer Allen)</p><p>Seconds to LiveBy Leisurerules</p><p>"Play to win real money in this bizarre take on a snake game." (Campbell Bird)</p><p>All this, plus staff picks for Game of the Year.

That's according to a couple of iOS app developers called Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo.</p><p>The pair found an icon in the code for the HomePod speaker firmware that certainly suggests that screen edges are going to be a thing of the past in the iPhone range.</p><p>Interestingly, it looks like the Home button could be a think of the past as well. It looks set to be replaced with 3D face mapping. You'll hold your phone up to your face, and an infrared scanner will make sure that you're you.</p>IT IS MY FACE<p>Which sounds a bit bonkers if you ask me, but since no one ever asks me, I don't suppose that really matters.</p><p>This could also be the end of TouchID, although the smart money is on the screen itself having some sort of print-recognition hardware.</p><p>Of course this could all be nonsense, but since it was discovered in some of Apple's own code, it's worth taking with a smaller pinch of salt than usual.</p><p>Hopefully we'll find out next month, when most people think that Apple is going to be announcing its latest handset.</p>TechradarO, how the channel to the stream gave grace!

<p>There's more exciting news today as the Japanese favourite, Fate/Grand Order, launches in the US and Canada.</p><p>Presented by TYPE-MOON, Fate/Grand Order is a rather complex-sounding visual narrative adventure centred on the Fate/Stay Night franchise. If you're not familiar with the franchise, you take on the role of 'Master' and have to summon and command powerful familiars known as 'Servants'.</p><p>Where Grand Order is concerned, 2015 is the final era where sorcery exists. The Chaldea Security Organisation, a group which guarantees humanity's existence through the ages, finds out that humans are likely to go extinct in 2016. In response, agents must be sent back in time to deal with the space-time anomalies that could result in humanity's destruction.</p><p>If you're still with me, you can grab Fate/Grand Order free to play on the American/Canadian App Store or Google Play now. There's no word yet on the game's release in further locations, but we'll keep an eye out.</p><p>Oh, and if you fancy giving the game a go now it's in English check out Pocket Gamer's handy guide on creating a foreign iTunes account.</p>

<p>Bake It, Kwalee's hypercasual cooking game initially launched back in April and since then it has been downloaded an impressive 10 million times. It's not entirely surprising given the back catalogue of Kwalee which includes Draw It and Jetpack Jump which have been downloaded 80 and 38 million times respectively.</p><p>The development time for the game was apparently very swift. Bake It was pitched in February and was then promptly released on 28th April and was completely developed remotely. If you're unfamiliar with the game itself, it tasks players with matching their cooking with customer orders in order to gain the title of Star Baker.</p><p>They'll do this by shaping, icing and decorate various cakes and other sweet treats. As you progress you'll be able to save up coins to upgrade your bakery and you'll unlock different recipes which means more desserts to create alongside additional toppings, icing and tray shapes to choose from. It's quite a fun game honestly although it also bombards you with ads at every possible opportunity. </p><p>Discussing the 10 million milestone David Darling, CEO of Kwalee said: “That we’ve already reached 10 million downloads with Bake It is a source of great pride – especially given the circumstances under which we released it.”</p><p>He added: “Right from the first pitch, Bake It stood out as a game with great potential and we can’t wait to make good on that promise by celebrating many more download milestones for the game. The first successful remote release also gives us real confidence for the many games we’ve currently got in the works. It shouldn’t be long before we’re repeating this success with more remotely developed and published games!”</p><p>Bake It is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.</p>Interested in other upcoming games? Here are some of the best available in soft-launch
