About this deal

Diversions abound as you solve action-oriented puzzles with Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Albus Dumbledore and a host of unforgettable characters from the now internationally acclaimed J.

Norbert is omitted in this version, along with the 6th generation home console versions of the game.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". K. Rowling's second book in the series, the game offers a magical multitude of new challenges and mysteries as the famous "Boy Who Lived. Nintendo Power was pleased by the variety of quests, and approved of the difficulty and level of detail. Amrich and Harris lamented the scarce save points, with the former claiming that "you should expect to play for an hour or two each time you pick it up if you want to make real progress". Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (released in the United States as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) is a 2001 video game developed by Griptonite Games and published by Electronic Arts for the Game Boy Advance.

Harry joins Hagrid in an investigation of an attack on a unicorn in the adjacent forest and encounters a figure drinking a dead unicorn's blood. I think I finished it in about 4 hours - it's a nice looking/sounding game, but certainly no Zelda if you wants a few weeks of play out of it. The game can best be described as a puzzle platformer loosely based on the film version of the first Harry Potter book.The game may be short and easy, but it's also thoughtfully designed and genuinely entertaining, and KnowWonder deserves credit for that. In some segments, Harry partakes in the game of Quidditch, in which he flies on a broomstick and must locate and catch a Golden Snitch fluttering about the arena. The colours, the amazingly detailed backgrounds, I love Pokémon, but these games put Yellow and Gold/Silver/Crystal (We don't need to talk about the other Pokémon games graphics-wise XD.

Upon reaching Hogwarts, the trio follow the events of the novel, and learn magic by attending classes. Tim Wapshott of The Times gave the game a score of four stars out of five and stated, "The game remains faithful to the spirit of the book, but it is perhaps a little too linear and predictable.In the United States, the game was among the highest-selling titles released for handheld consoles between 2000 and 2006. 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.

Unique to this Harry Potter game, all characters have their own unique quotes for whenever they get hit by a spell. Both Amrich and Harris remarked that the console's sound quality caused Harry's cry of "Flipendo" to resemble the word " Nintendo". 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. Some characters are bugged to the point where they might use certain portraits from other characters instead.

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.
