Each term offers new and exciting challenges, such as piloting a broomstick through the Forbidden Forest, learning to cast spells and mix potions, scoring house points for Gryffindor, and more. Inside all of the game's dungeons are enemies; gnomes, snails and pixies mainly each with different attack patterns.

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.

Many of the dungeons are irritatingly laid out or disorientating, and being sent back to the start happens far too often. Some characters are bugged to the point where they might use certain portraits from other characters instead. Harry determines that Fluffy is guarding the Philosopher's Stone and concludes that Snape must be after it.

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. Attend lessons, learn and cast spells, explore Hogwarts and take flight to play Quidditch on your Nimbus Two Thousand. With such a rich and interesting story to be made into game form, it's a surprise that more of the book wasn't used in planning the quests. Chris Baker of Electronic Gaming Monthly cited the delay in Harry's spells as a mark of unresponsive controls, [15] and Skyler Miller of AllGame felt that it rendered combat "more of an annoyance than a sincere challenge".

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. They're full fledged classic Final Fantasy-Style RPGs, they have amazing exploration, addictive gameplay-loop, very satisfying turn-based combat, fun mini games and cool collectibles! 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). 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.

In terms of following the story of the book and movie, there are points where the game deviates; the importance of Snape's collecting quest is exaggerated and many memorable moments are left out in favour of classes and dungeons which have no relevance to the story. The headmaster Albus Dumbledore appears and explains that the mirror reflects a person's deepest desire. The trio can combine magical spells into one almighty incantation, providing the raw power to overcome otherwise impenetrable hazards. Harry and Hermione learn from Hagrid that Fluffy can be soothed with music and that Nicolas Flamel is involved in what is being guarded. Also: the games completely ignore the films and just adapt the books very faithfully, I absolutely ADORE how faithful to the books the character sprites are, in contrast to the movies.Excitingly enough though, there are five completely different versions of this game across as many platforms. 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. In this version of the game, Harry uses Flipendo on the mountain troll and it falls in a hole in the girls' bathroom. The final quest in the game which is based around obtaining the Philosopher's Stone, and the chambers protecting it is particularly difficult in places, and seems to share a characteristic with most of the other dungeons in the game in that it's completely tedious and unnecessarily long.
