She is the only good thing to come out of one of the dullest mobile games in the history of mobile gaming. Each year following the generic self insert and their pals from Hogwarts Academy as they tap assorted events is boring and sleep inducing. But aside from the cartoon imagery, the games only consistency, the excitement sparked whenever Merula appears, is magic enough to make inaction seem active.
Perhaps the die was cast when Jam City had the brilliant idea of making the main antagonist a cute girl; she ensured that the game could thus be called a work of art for people of superior taste. Just ridiculously overshadowing the characters of the books. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery might be anti-consumer (or not), but it's certainly worth playing for Merula's wonderful, beautiful, visage. No one can deny that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.>a-at least Merula is cute though r-right
Her appearance is perfect; her characterization flawless. As I played, I noticed that every time Merula appeared on screen, my eyes became glued to her adorable gestures.
I began marking on the back of an envelope every time I took a screenshot of Merula. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Jam City's mind was so intent on making Merula unlikable, yet they somehow succeeded in creating the perfect woman. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery by the same Anonymous. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are playing Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to find inner peace." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read of Merula's exploits, you are, in fact, being purified by love.
