This is followed by a segment in which Harry must use the newly learned spell to collect a number of certain items while fending off creatures and solving puzzles. Those facts make Prisoner of Azkaban a great game for younger kids, and it's a lot of fun for less-discriminating older fans of Harry Potter too.

As with the Playstation version of the game, the story skips straight to Hogwarts, giving a storyboard version of the first third of the book. And as you attain experience points for Harry, you can upgrade spells and improve Harry's strength so he can take on new opponents. 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. Harry determines that Fluffy is guarding the Philosopher's Stone and concludes that Snape must be after it.Utilising the GBA Link, Game Boy Advance players can hook into their Game Cube game, transferring maps, magical items and secret spells for added value. 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. 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. 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.

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. 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. Once all of the player's health has been depleted, they're sent back to the very beginning of the level, despite the fact that many levels are at least 10 to 15 minutes in length when being solved for the first time. In the book and movie, Ron used the Levitation Charm on the troll's club to bash the troll's head with it. While it tries to cover all angles of the plot, it does mean that some segments of the game lack a little polish, and aren't always that enjoyable.The game is viewed from a top-down perspective, [2] and Harry can explore his environment and communicate with other characters. 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. Gnomes wander randomly, and attack when within range; unfortunately though the timing is slightly off and it's incredibly frustrating to even get a hit on them. The trio can combine magical spells into one almighty incantation, providing the raw power to overcome otherwise impenetrable hazards. The beginning of the game seems to be packed with subgames and things to interact with, but this really peters out and by halfway through the story, there's very little to do except watch the cut scenes to get to the end.

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. What if you could leave the nonmagical world of the Muggles behind and enrol in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? 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".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. Simply cast one of your spells with the colour you desire, then switch to the other spell of your choosing by casting it into a wall where its graphics will not occur.
