Norbert is omitted in this version, along with the 6th generation home console versions of the game. The Game Boy Advance version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was developed by Griptonite Games, [9] under the creative direction of Phil Trumbo and with J. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. You play as Harry and you have to complete various tasks such as finding books in the library, spell challanges and flying lessons. The quests are a strange mix of events from the story, classes where spells are learnt, puzzle platforming dungeons, and fetching the ingredients for a potion for Snape, which seems to span at least half of the game.

Be Harry Potter in this Game Boy Advance game, discovering a world filled with wizardry, fun and ever-present danger. Harris remarked that "it's almost as if the artists actually digitized [ Harry Potter actor] Alan Rickman in his deadpan stroll for his game representation". Finding that Black is innocent of all crimes, and looking out for Harry, the team defend Black from a horde of dementors, allowing him to escape.He is rescued by a centaur, who explains that unicorn's blood can maintain the life of someone close to death, and Harry realizes that the figure is his parents' killer, Lord Voldemort. The novel's first 100 pages — covering the giant Rubeus Hagrid leaving the orphaned infant Harry Potter with his maternal aunt's family, Harry's invitation to attend the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and his sorting into the Gryffindor house — are summarized in a storybook-like introduction. Harry befriends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger and they partake in a competition between the houses of Hogwarts to win the House Cup upon the year's end, in which points are granted for satisfactory performance and detracted for infractions.

One night, while secretly obtaining ingredients for Snape's class, Harry happens upon the Mirror of Erised, in which he sees his parents. The game play is short (I started and completed the entire game on a coach journey from London to Swansea).

Harry and his pals are about to embark upon a magical journey; the bespectacled boy wizard has been chosen as a contestant in the prestigious but punishing Triwizard Tournament. The visual presentation was cited as a strength, [18] with reviewers praising the smooth animation, [2] [11] lush and colourful backgrounds, [1] [11] [15] cutscene illustrations, [17] and stylized likenesses of the characters to their film counterparts. The game may be short and easy, but it's also thoughtfully designed and genuinely entertaining, and KnowWonder deserves credit for that. If anyone can tell me how to finish the task please tell me because I can't bear trying any more, and the game is now gathering dust.

Whilst we purchased this as a presumably robust testbed for epilepsy treatments, none of the team could have predicted the carnage which ensued. In this game's story, Neville breaks his wrist when Harry arrived at the flying lesson in which Madam Hooch said "You're late, Potter.

In the book and movie, Neville breaks his wrist after falling off a broomstick from a great height during the flying lesson, what allows Malfoy to steal his Remembrall. And if you're not overwhelmed by Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone , you can wager on one certainty--this isn't the last we've seen of Mr Potter on the Game Boy Advance. You explore the school and its grounds, gather items for potions, cast spells and battle a dazzling spectrum of adversaries in turn-based wizard challenges. For other 2001 games of the same name, see Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001 video game) and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Game Boy Color video game).

Michael Lafferty of GameZone said that the game lived up to his expectations as a fan of the book series and figured that it would be appealing to casual gamers as well, but warned that the initial puzzles would be too simple for veterans and that the enemies' artificial intelligence (AI) was predictable.And as Harry, you'll experience the daring and fun of life at Hogwarts, as well as the awesome responsibility of finally finding the Philosopher's Stone and challenging He-Who-Cannot-Be-Named.
