In simple words, the game is like Clash Royale. With some tap and shake controls, there is an energy bar system. While each spell has a different amount of bar, and once the bar is used fully it will take time before you can use it again. You can use them just by dragging to the screen, and then wait and watch!
Get Ready For Hogwarts!
