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. The Game Boy Advance version was released with the other two versions in North America on November 16, 2001, and in Europe on November 23. Harry and Hermione learn from Hagrid that Fluffy can be soothed with music and that Nicolas Flamel is involved in what is being guarded. You'll also visit famous locations like the campsite of the Quidditch World Cup and the chilly depths of the Black Lake - where you'll need to rescue your friends from a terrible fate.

In the case of prefects however, they will deduct points afterwards via them discovering Harry if he happens to cast a spell on them, since they'll by default use the unique student-quotes before speaking a prefect quote (though some prefects will deduct house points twice through this).In the unlikely event that you're thinking that I've reviewed this game before, you'd be partially correct, as I've taken a look at the Game Boy Colour and Playstation versions of the game. Miller respected the direction of creating an adventure game as opposed to a platformer as was common practice with handheld film tie-ins. Players who've never seen the movies or read the book will find the game to be a boring and confusing experience, and those who are Harry Potter fans will miss their favourite parts of the story, and find the characters to be less than engaging.

Be Harry Potter in this Game Boy Advance game, discovering a world filled with wizardry, fun and ever-present danger. Villoria perceived a strong quality in the musical themes and sound effects, which he attributed to the licensed audio tools used by the development team. This system must be updated to the latest system software and connected to the internet with automatic downloads enabled, and it must have enough storage to complete the download. IGN commented on the game not forcing "random battes" from similar RPGs as a positive, but saying that it wasn't "enough to make Prisoner of Azkaban a successful RPG. The spells that can be learned include carpe retractum, a spell that allows an object to be pulled towards the caster, or the caster be pulled towards the object; Steleus, a spell that causes sneezing and expecto patronum, a spell to defend against dementors.What if you could leave the nonmagical world of the Muggles behind and enrol in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? The Game Boy Advance release played as a traditional Role playing game, similar to games like Dragon Quest. 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". 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.

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 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. Overall Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone for the Game Boy Advance is a less than enjoyable experience as its gameplay can be likened to a frustrating and almost broken puzzle platformer.

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.

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.Flipendo knocks enemies back, and can stun and kill weaker enemies, Alohomora unlocks certain types of locked doors and chests, Avifors transfigures things into birds, and there are even more spells to learn in the later parts of the game. 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.
