Now Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has slashed the price of its microtransactions
Officially-licensed mobile adventure Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery launched last week to criticism of its hugely restrictive in-game energy limits.
The free-to-play app blocks you from completing in-progress missions unless you either pay up, or put down the game and then remember to come back within a certain time limit. One example foisted upon players within the first 20 minutes leaves your school-age avatar being strangled unless you cough up or wait it out.
Now, and perhaps in response to this controversy, Hogwarts Mystery is offering heavy discounts if you do want to pay for more in-game energy. Checking my app this afternoon, I can now buy 130 gems (which you use to buy energy) for just 99p, down from £4.99. The offer will apparently last just 48 hours.
