The Fantastic Beasts game has just been launched on the App Store and Google Play, under the name Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World. This gives fans of the Harry Potter universe (and not only) a chance to experience the new adventure set in this wonderful world of wizardry and spectacular beasts. And I am here to share with you a bunch of Fantastic Beasts: Cases cheats, tips and strategies that will help you solve the mysteries faster and get the most out of the game.

So let’s not waste a single second, there are cases to be solved! Let’s check out below some Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World cheats and tips!

1. Play the same scene over and over again
Even though it sounds a bit boring, this is what you should do in order to maximize the number of points you get and stars you unlock. Play the same scene over and over again in order to have all the item placements fresh in your memory and be able to quickly tap them. If you play randomly through the scenes, it will be more difficult to complete them with maximum points.

2. Upgrade your skills
Upgrading your skills is extremely important. So the coins that you collect along the way can be put to good use by upgrading your skills in the appropriate menu. You can only unlock new skills as you progress through the levels, so there are no real choices to be made here, but just make sure that you always keep an eye on your skills and buy some as soon as you have the chance.

3. Add more friends
Friends are extremely important in the Fantastic Beasts: Cases game because they can send you all sorts of valuable gifts, including much needed energy, but you can also bring them in with you to help you when solving scenes. With huge waiting times in between usages, it’s best to add as many friends in the game as possible in order to always go with 5 hints and therefore get a huge point bonus each time you play.

4. Micromanage helpers
This goes well hand in hand with the tip above. In the end, it’s all about micromanaging friends and helpers in order to get the most in terms of points from them. Try to use the ones that offer 5 hints when playing scenes that you are very familiar with, as the extra points will make the difference. Also, if you’re close to unlocking a new scene, it’s best to save a helper with more than one hint because you might actually need the help to complete the level. So find the perfect balance when it comes to using them for maximizing your points and therefore star gains.

5. Ace the minigames
Minigames are usually very simple and a good way for you to get some extra energy. So try to complete them as fast as possible because the slower you are, the less extra energy you will be rewarded with.

Always complete minigames as soon as you have stars to work on them and the order doesn’t really matter. If you don’t really need the energy and you have this option, talk to characters instead of playing minigames as talking to them usually rewards no energy. Make sure to always start working on clues that need examination as soon as you have that chance because the waiting times are usually extremely long. Play scenes in the mean time to get more stars and have them ready for when you need them.

Finally, leave the bonus scenes for the end and only play them when you are extremely familiar with the scenes they are attached to. They are a bit trickier and don’t matter as much as the regular scenes do in terms of star rewards per points gained.

6. Brew potions
Once you reach level 3, then level 7 and so on, you can start brewing potions in the game. These can be used when you play the scenes to give you advantages, but are really difficult to get. Friends come in to help when it comes to potions, but you can also get ingredients for brewing potions from the store. However, they are not really a must and you can play the game without them: just put them to good use when you are ready to brew one or some!

7. The time lapse cheat
There is a potential cheat for Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World which is worth trying out (this might not work though so use with caution): when you run out of energy, simply quit the app, go to your device’s settings and set the time forward 60 minutes. Return to the game and see if it had recorded the extra time and rewarded you with extra energy. If this works, you can repeat to fill your energy bar or complete research faster. Please be warned that this cheat has not been tested and might not work or break your game so use with caution!

  1. I tried out the time lapse hint and I warn people it works the first time but it breaks your game. I didn’t notice anything at first, but I realized I couldn’t gain anymore energy, so I had to delete the app and start over. DON’T USE

    • It’s because the game knows you’ve already got the energy from that time. You wont gain energy until the real time ha caught up with the amount of time you skipped forward. I often use it durring the night tot het the most energy use out of a day.

  2. I’m in act 4 doing a beat quest on a troll and in inquest it says to find the 1 chocolate frog hidden in the leaky cauldron. I know there’s a chocolate frog on the tent but that’s not it as its not hidden but I cannot find the hidden chocolate frog & therefore cannot complete the damn beast quest lol does anyone know where that frog is??
