Unlocking at player level 55, Club Challenge introduces a new, separate interactive path to the game's solo journey, offering an exclusive and independent points, rewards and 'lives' system in each of its events. Spanning up to three weeks at a time, each Club Challenge event will transport players to a unique, interactive map location, marked with puzzles to tackle to continue their progress. Earning points for each puzzle they complete, players will receive three daily 'lives' specific to the Club Challenge feature within Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells. As Clubmates collaborate to navigate the maze-like map, they will encounter both pitfalls and rewards as they earn points and work together to contribute to their Club's league ranking.

For the inaugural Club Challenge event, players will leave the safety of Hogwarts and enter the mysterious, and often dangerous, Forbidden Forest. As Clubmates explore the mythical forest, they'll uncover rare but revered Artefacts from the wizarding world, like the coveted House Cup or the Sword of Gryffindor, to gain access to the final puzzle. In the final showdown, players must team up to defeat some of the most ferocious creatures found in the forest, including the Mountain Troll and Hungarian Horntail, or Ron's most loathsome foe, Aragog.

'With elements of social collaboration, strategy, and magical gameplay complete with iconic spells and Chocolate Frogs, Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells offers a robust Match-3 experience unlike any other,' said Yaron Leyvand, Executive Vice President, Games at Zynga (News - Alert). 'The Club Challenge event introduces a blend of excitement, mystery and friendship that is core to the Harry Potter series and allows players to connect and collaborate with Clubmates in more meaningful ways.'

In Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, players enter a Match-3 adventure brimming with the spells, humour, colour and characters of the Harry Potter series. Featuring the soundtrack and voiceover recordings from the original Harry Potter films, fans follow an authentic, mobile retelling of Harry's journey through the wizarding world. Earning spells and special boosts as they advance, players solve Match-3 puzzles populated with hopping Chocolate Frogs, fluttering Winged Keys, battling wizard chess pieces and other unexpected obstacles and objects. In the spirit of camaraderie and friendly competition at Hogwarts, players can join or form clubs with other fans to socialise, collaborate on puzzle strategies, share lives and vie for prizes in exclusive Club Events.

Issues fixed[edit]

Error at Launch on Windows 8 and later[edit]

The game by default uses a Direct3D render device. In recent versions of Windows this may cause an error at launch: LockRect failed: D3DERR_DEVICELOST. The following has been tested on Windows 10 to work.

  2. Open Default.ini.
  3. Or, if the game has already been launched for your user, you can also go to the configuration file(s) location and open hppoa.ini.
  4. Go to the [Engine.Engine] section.
  5. Add a ; in front of RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
  6. Remove the ; in front of RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice

Frozen Imp[edit]

During Ron's first Carpe Retractum challenge, the player will be introduced to the imp enemy which may become frozen after its intro cutsceen finishes, preventing further progress. The likely problem is a timing error with the cutscene's script.
Limit FPS[4]
  1. Force the FPS to 60 or lower in your GPU's control panel.
    • Alternatively, download software capable of doing so (such as Dxtory).
  2. Once the imp becomes active, the limiter can be disabled.

    • Alternatively, download software capable of doing so (such as Dxtory).
