About this deal

Both were frustrated by the necessity of starting an entire segment over upon falling down a bottomless pit. You certainly can't accuse the developers of trying to short-change the fans, as it seems they've tried to cram as much of the film into the game. Learn new spells, undertake new quests, make new friends and challenge new adversaries to confront the powers at the heart of the Chamber of Secrets.

Take the wheel of a flying car and don't be late for a second term at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets . There is not enough room to squeeze past it, you cannot keep trying to go over it because this always results in loss of all lives so you have to start the task again. The Gameboy Color versions of Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets are turn based RPG's along with Prisoner of Azkaban on GBA (all three were done by the same studio). Hermione and Ron are both playable characters, and the three friends will need to work together if they're to overcome the deadly obstacles that stand in their way.The game was developed by KnowWonder, Griptonite Games, and EA UK each for different consoles and was published by Electronic Arts under the EA Games label. Sure, there's some great fun to be had with the game, and the quality of the graphics means players will instantly relate it to the film. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone offers colourful 2-D graphics that render the action-driven puzzles and minigames in spirited detail. Both Amrich and Harris remarked that the console's sound quality caused Harry's cry of "Flipendo" to resemble the word " Nintendo". The player's health is represented by the lightning bolts in the top left of the screen, and one is taken away for each time the player comes into contact with an enemy.

Snails and pixies are a little easier and more predictable, but the most annoying aspect of the game is lack of variety in the enemies that can be found. In this version of the game, Harry uses Flipendo on the mountain troll and it falls in a hole in the girls' bathroom. GameSpot were positive about the game, scoring 7/10 or above across releases, [21] with a high of 7. At E3 2001, Electronic Arts announced its license to publish video game adaptations of the Harry Potter franchise, with titles for the Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation, and the PC scheduled for November 2001. 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 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. In addition to playing as the titular character Harry, the game also allows the player to control Hermione and Ron, as well as fly Buckbeak, and control Harry's pet owl, Hedwig. However, he opined that the game's adherence to the source material's narrative deprived it of energy and a sense of adventure, explaining that the personal nature of the story's conflicts made for little action that could be easily translated into a video game. Too wrong I was: you begin the came by attending your first defence against the dark arts lesson and then once your spell is learnt you do a tricky challenge.
