(Pocket-lint) - Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells is a new mobile game for iOS, Android, Facebook and Amazon devices - and pre-registration is now open, so you can sign up on Google Play or at harrypotterpuzzlesandspells.com to be the first to get alerted when the new game launches.

Coming soon, the game is the first officially-licensed match-3 puzzler based in the world of Harry Potter. It is also one of few mobile games to feature Harry himself, along with fan faves Hermione, Ron and many more.

It's steeped in Wizarding World themes, with spells and potions unlocked through progress, plus puzzle pieces including chocolate frogs and other Potteresque sweets and items.

Experience points can be earned in the game, which can be used to gain new magical abilities, plus level up and customise unique player characters.

Players can also form and join clubs, to socialise and compete in collaborative challenges.

"We wanted to make the game a celebration of not only the Harry Potter books but also to the fans that grew up reading the series," Zynga's president of publishing, Bernard Kim, told Pocket-lint.

"We are incredibly proud of the work that the team has done in creating a game that anyone could enjoy, that's accessible as well as authentic.

"Zynga is excited to bring the Wizarding World's first puzzle match-3 game for mobile, and we cannot wait for fans around the world to get their hands on the Puzzles & Spells."

The game was first available in the Philippines as part of a "soft launch" period, but it will soon be released worldwide.
