It is time for another instalment of the fabulous Harry Potter Games! The grand winner of the last poll was...

The Gameboy Advance game! :omgomg:

It's another RPG, so we're going back to the classic days of the original Let's Harry Potter. I know I'm excited, and I hope you are too!

It's time for magic!

I'm just about to fly to Dubai and will have the privilege of travelling business class. During which time I will get drunk on champagne and mojitos before enjoying 35 degree heat for ten days...

But THIS has me more excited.

Why does Ron have one of those weird-ass micro pigs on his right shoulder?

Welcome ladies and gentlemen, to the third instalment of the ever enjoyable Let’s Harry Potter Games! This time I am taking you through the life and times of our eponymous hero during his year involving the Prisoner of Azkaban. I think we’re all in for a treat. I am ready for high quality gameplay and storytelling right here!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/001_zpsbkqsypcb.jpg
Can’t stop this hype train! Choo Choo!

Typical start menu fare… New Game… Options… wait, what’s this?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/002_zpsm8o5jqzu.jpg
MINI-GAMES?!

Oh god. What joys will this game bring me today?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/003_zpsiyqprhbn.jpg
…Oh. :(

Well, nevermind. I’m sure I’ll unlock incredibly fun and fair mini-games as the game progresses. Not a single bit of cheating from the computer will be involved in any of them, I’m sure. Not that Harry Potter games would ever stoop so low.

Right. Time to get this party started. NEW GAME!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/004_zpsu1gseg3n.jpg
I mean, I guess this is what happens in Prisoner of Azkaban. If you shorten down the first three chapters into three sentences.

I like how it implies that the main reason Harry left was because of Dudley. Not a single mention of Aunt Marge. But here I am again, expecting this to have some vague knowledge of the source material.

Moving on from the only plot we’ll get, I’m sure. I finally have control of our hero.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/006_zps7wzcwnzb.jpg
Unsurprisingly, the GBA graphics are improved from the GBC ones. Shocking.

Looking much better Harry. And I believe that is a tiny scrunched up pixilation of Daniel Radcliffe beside that Flipendo icon. Brilliant.

A few steps forward and Harry is accosted by a strange man.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/007_zpslw4vm1hk.jpg
Who are you!? I don’t remember anyone with that face from the film!

Harry, of course, always has the right things on hand to say.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/008_zpscigkrzaa.jpg
Um… Okay…

This is, I’m sure none of you are surprised to hear me say, is Cornelius Fudge, Minister for Magic. Why the game makers spent so much time getting Harry’s likeness to be so close to Dan Radcliffe, while pretty much sacking the attempt with Fudge is unknown to all.

I suppose it’s just because Fudge probably isn’t going to be around long, and he’s not really that major a character. Anyway, the old guy introduces himself, and Harry gets right to the point.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/009_zps8z50ehao.jpg
Wait, who?

No, seriously. Who? There has been no mention of this Sirius Black person at all so far. Fudge himself appeared confused by this sudden mention. Luckily, Harry can go into more detail.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/011_zpsqd1cnmbw.jpg
Where the heck are you pulling this information from Harry?

Glorious exposition!

The incompetence shown by Fudge is excellent.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/012_zpsvqmfy675.jpg
Oh, THAT Sirius Black. I thought you were talking about my cleaner! I’m glad we cleared that up.

This is right on point for Fudge’s character. Quite by accident, the game gets some things right.

I now take full control of Harry, and get to wander around the old pub. I, of course, start by mashing buttons to find out what I can do.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/013_zpsnlurfi10.jpg
FLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII-

I can use magic outside of battle! Cool. This is an RPG though, so I’m not sure how useful this mechanic will prove to be.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/014_zpsud7cp5fn.jpg
Harry is so happy to be throwing his chocolate in the air.

In conventional RPG fare, there are chests littered around. No more investigating patches of wall for items, it seems. So there have been improvements made to the formula since the GBC game, but… is this really what I wanted…? I’m sure they will have fixed all the terrible things that were so great.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/015_zps9sihi4ce.jpg
Or not!

Their attempts to keep vaguely faithful to the movies has worked against them here. There are just so many things I am not sure about going on here. Brilliant. My hopes are renewed for more terrible faces!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/016_zpspl5ph8ri.jpg
I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED.

Good lord, what is that on the top left? Really. I wipe the tears from my eyes, and head upstairs to get to bed. It’s been a long day for Harry.

BUT FIRST.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/020_zpsozqphe6t.jpg
I see. Thanks, I guess?

Who would have thought that the Minister for Magic would be such an advocate for Wizard Cards!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/021_zps2l3qb3me.jpg
This again? I can ignore this mechanic once more.

It is pretty neat that they have taken the original game system and built upon it. Made improvements, I’m sure. I hope.

Right that’s enough about Wizard Cards. Go home Minster, you’ve been out at the pub for far too long.

Time for bed.

But wait!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/023_zpspc2jrzgi.jpg
Uhhhhh…

Uhhhh……


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/025_zpsplijsuo8.jpg
Oh……

Harry has received a “gift” from Hagrid for his birthday.

It is the Monster Book of Monsters, and this thrusts Harry into his first battle of the game.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/026_zpsxsu8wkde.jpg
This is not the kind of package anyone would enjoy :(

Standard turn based battle system fare. A neat little turn order in the top right. Health bars for all the enemies too! Sweet.

Time to check out the damage I can deal.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/027_zps9uzlbd9f.jpg
So… literally the exact same as before.

I cast a wee cheeky incendio at the book. You know, it’s a book, and fire should really kick its butt. If books had butts. …Do monster books have butts?

Regardless, it does the trick and I destroy that damn thing.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/030_zpscabfxv8l.jpg
Alternatively, it just goes away. Wandering down Diagon Alley, snapping at the heels of children.

Whoop! I win! Time to collect my spoils.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/031_zpsvqplbqgf.jpg
The ghoul gains 8 experience.

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/032_zps9bgjlibj.jpg
Why the heck did a book have a school robe? Was it going to try and pretend to be a student so it could eat people’s hands?!

I get prompted to equip that school robe. I don’t know what Harry was wearing before…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/033_zpsyzmatcrt.jpg
Same sort of deal here as previously.

They have kept so much the exact same as that first venture into handheld RPG. At this point, I am honestly wondering if they changed anything except the graphics, which has had a mild update. Ah well, moving on.

A quick attempt to explore the Leaky Cauldron has me met with more talking doorknobs.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/034_zpsibdys19y.jpg
Curse you!

Downstairs, we bump into some familiar faces.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/035_zpscootymy2.jpg
At least, I think they’re familiar.

It’s a bunch of gingers, so it has to be Harry’s adopted family, the Weasleys!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/036_zpsgnio44w5.jpg
You’re not… What?

Right. Okay. So Harry is Dan Radcliffe. Fudge is barely Robert Hardy. Tom the Innkeep is very much Jim Tavaré as seen in the movie. Molly Weasley in no way is Julie Walters. Arthur Weasley is also in no way Mark Williams.

I just… don’t get it. They are so odd in picking and choosing who they take the likeness of. I just…

Walking slightly to the right, we find Harry’s best friend in the entire world standing in a corner staring off into space while his rat eats his shoes.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/038_zpsp8bmkial.jpg
Thanks for coming to say hi to me, jerk.

That vacant stare…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/039_zpsiv2igy4n.jpg
OKAY SO YOU ARE DEFINITELY RUPERT GRINT

Guhhhhhhhh!?

Some small talk passes, and Ron complains about Scabbers. He’s been quite sick recently, poor thing. Harry luckily knows all about how to take care of rats. Probably because of all that time he spent with him in that cupboard under the stairs.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/040_zpsnclnjwxo.jpg
Serious though Harry, why do you know these things?

Ron is pretty useless though.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/041_zpsgssatfle.jpg
All you do with your life is look after this rat. Why don’t you have any rat tonic?!

Harry has the bright idea to go down the street to Magical Menagerie to get some more rat tonic. You know, the shop on Diagon Alley that exists for the sole purpose of providing lotions and potions for your pets.

Only kidding, he goes to talk to the creepy innkeep.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/042_zpsxdzai5lf.jpg
Brilliant. Saving a few pennies while wandering around a cellar.

Seems that Flipendo isn’t the only spell I can use on the field. After mashing a few more buttons, I find the switch spell button.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/044_zpsepr6pppj.jpg
Shiny.

I am fully equipped to take on this cellar. Bring it on! Just down these stairs…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/045_zpsjzfwnfwb.jpg
No duh, Harry.

Welcome to the first of many dungeons! Turns out, Harry Potter really likes to whine about stuff.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/046_zps6b1zgp5b.jpg
How dare a cellar not be the cleanest thing!

I mean, it’s not like he’s lived in terrible conditions his whole life. How very dare there not be a house elf cleaning this massive room.

Moving forward, we come across our first obstacle. A hole in the ground. But, using the important advice Tom gave me, I light up the wand and…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/047_zpsjcfgj6ue.jpg
It’s just like magic!!

It appears that just like in the PS2 game, Lumos helps us find the way forward.

Also I get some EXP for crossing the bridge.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/048_zps5z507kkg.jpg
I didn’t even do anything… But okay free levels!

It appears that you get EXP for doing certain things on the field. Using Lumos to cross the bridge again yields no results. Yes, I did try.

Harry talks to himself some more, to give us important information about playing the game.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/049_zps7lhon7ds.jpg
-IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII-

There are some barrels around that you can destroy for no reason. I get some EXP for destroying one of them, but the rest of them net nothing. Not even any items or anything. But that’s enough about the basics of how to play this game.

It’s time to d-d-d-d-d-


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/050_zpsq7m2w5sq.jpg
The monsters are pretty!

Shapeless blobs alert me to the position of the enemies on the field. I can get around them easily enough, but who wants to do that? I will destroy everything. EVERYTHING!

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/0511_zpsvlmu6ueu.jpg

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/053_zpsoj9gicgm.jpg
…to rats…

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/054_zpsluoxt2ce.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/055_zpsqlzzca6j.jpg
…to… uh… ugly guys?

I jest, they’re red caps. Obviously. See their little red hats?!

After all that hard work fighting, another level is handed to us.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/057_zpsseqqtupu.jpg
Sparkles for the ghoul!

And I get to see an old friend!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/058_zpswwux6xjk.jpg
I am sure you will save my life in the coming minutes.

As expected, there are treasures hidden around the dungeon. All in little chests. It really does make it so much easier.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/059_zpsirjlb0yt.jpg
What wonders do you hold?

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/060_zpsnsxnbpnq.jpg
ARE YOU KIDDING?!

So soon, game? I… I am saddened that you would think I’d need a Grand Wiggenweld Potion so soon!



Oh who am I kidding, I’ll definitely need it sooner rather than later.

The battles give us some good loot too!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/061_zpsqxhjjeef.jpg
Ewww, walking around this dusty cellar barefoot. What is wrong with you Harry?!

Speaking of the dust, Harry cannot stop himself commenting on the state of the place.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/062_zpss8y01lmq.jpg
Twice! Twice he feels the need to comment.

This kid needs to readjust his priorities.

A bit further on, we come across our first puzzle.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/063_zpslgmwctfh.jpg
I need to get over there, but there’s a gap! If only I had some horribly awkward jumping mechanic!

The solution, is of course, magic. And I get myself some EXP for being a smart cookie too.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/064_zpsg769mr8p.jpg
-PENDO

Across this gap, I encounter some new enemies.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/068_zpsdg9t3jhf.jpg
Not bats. They’ll get in Harry’s messy hair!

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/066_zpslo7sptzo.jpg
OH GOD IT IS GOING TO EAT HIS FACE

Palette swaps already? Geez. Not even out of the first dungeon.

Some more loot comes out way.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/067_zpsvbwly4qb.jpg
I do kind of want this beanie myself. If only it wouldn’t cost £30 at the Studio Tour.

The next obstacle in my path is DARKNESS.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/069_zpsnelkgyeu.jpg
Yes, that would be terrible.

Honestly, there is nothing in this area to trip over. Lumos does make the place a little bit easier to see in though.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/070_zpst0x9mlhc.jpg
This is a door. I had no clue what it was until I walked through it. Thought it was a bridge or something.

We make it safely out of the dark corridor, and find our goal. It’s the rat tonic!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/071_zpsdghidzfe.jpg
Stupid jerk rat, what are you doing?!

All this hard work, and a rat has already got to it.

I suppose you really should expect this when you leave rat tonic for rats in a dark place where rats live. Rats.

Unfortunately, the rat tonic isn’t all good.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/073_zpsf4daec8b.jpg
Jesus, and you want to give Scabbers this stuff?

BOSS TIME!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/0740_zpswetwoptq.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/0741_zpsfc4olivr.jpg
??? HP?! God help me.

God did indeed help me, as it turns out.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/075_zpsytlhhpxn.jpg
When did this happen?

The game made no effort to say that I learned Flipendo Duo at any point. But it appears that the spells level up with use, just like they did before. I am waiting for the improvements to start showing up, but so far it seems to be the exact same.

Flipendo Duo makes quick work of the rat, and I am done.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/077_zpsqjypk9lz.jpg
The giant rat only gives me an ordinary belt?! The nerve.

Harry picks up the last dribble of the rat tonic and we head out of the cellar, back to more acceptable, non-dusty places.

Unfortunately, as he emerges, Harry overhears the Weasley parents talking about some serious business.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/078_zpsmla5xffv.jpg
Don’t worry, Harry already knows everything about Stubby Boardman.

Harry reacts in a reasonable way.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/081_zpskzuwymto.jpg
Nah it’s coo’ that he wants to kill me

Come on boy, there’s a crazed murderer after you, and that’s all you have to say?! Are you not even the slightest bit concerned?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/082_zpsksjs51jn.jpg
Uh huh

Well, fair enough, I guess. Except Sirius Black has his own body. And can use it. To kill you. Right now. I’m not sure why he’s not more concerned about this.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/083_zpsp8tg3jln.jpg
Wise words of warning from Arthur Weasley.

Alright, I pr-


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/084_zpssabk84u0.jpg
Fine then, just walk away.

Don’t even wait for Harry to respond. They just accept that he totally won’t do anything stupid. I mean, he’s got a great track record of not doing stupid things.





Back to Ron!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/085_zpsd1477v8w.jpg
No thanks to you, you lazy ass.

Harry wastes no time in getting to the important details.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/086_zpsv23lpa1z.jpg
Well, alright, I mean, we were just talking about Scabbers and rat tonic… but if that’s the way the conversation is swinging…

Luckily, before the conversation swings wildly in another direction, everyone’s favourite nerd shows up.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/088_zps5lllvzj0.jpg
Aww, kitty!

Hello Hermione!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/089_zps408zshds.jpg
WAIT WHO ARE YOU!?

Aaaahhhhhhhhhh it doesn’t even look


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/090_zpshwat4so0.jpg
Scabbers has gotten a bit of a make-over since the last time we saw him.

He actually looks like a rat. Not a demon from hell. Can’t say the same about poor Crookshanks though.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/091_zpsaivizzjc.jpg
I suppose Crookshanks was never written as an attractive animal.

These were obviously fighting words between the cat and rat. Scabbers takes off with Crookshanks on his tail.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/092_zpsvpt1pixy.jpg
Well, as close to his tail as they could programme him.

Ron is upset about this.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/093_zpsiiptmwbe.jpg
Do we have to? Can we not… just let Crookshanks get him? I can’t be bothered with the inevitable return to the cellar to find the stupid animals.

Nope, Harry needs to go search for the animals. I’m sure he’ll have to go down by himself while Ron and Hermione sit and sip brandy or something, right?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/095_zpsbniilpgt.jpg
Hellooooooooooooooooooo

This was a genuine surprise when this popped up. Multiple party members. Excellent. First proper shake up to the original formula.

So, I have been given the choice between going with Ron to find Scabbers and going with Hermione to find Crookshanks.

Who to choose?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/097_zpsg5d33w50.jpg
It was pretty much a no brainer for me.

Ron smells, etc. Don’t worry Roonil Waslib fans, he’ll get his chance to shine soon enough. I’m sure.

Back to the cellar with Harry and Hermione, to find an ugly cat. Will we find him? Tune in next time.

So was Crookshanks found eventually?

Crookshanks died.



I will be getting another entry up soon. I've just been ill the past week or so, but I am sort of on the mend, so watch this space.

That's OK, I'm more of a dog person anyway.

Sorry to hear that, Shauna. Hope you are feeling better. Ignore me, I'm just being impatient!

Shauna

It's been almost a month, I'd be impatient too. This is far too excellent to have to wait for so long!

After waiting for almost a month, Harry and Hermione found that Crookshanks and Scabbers were not going to be coming back on their own, so they sucked up their pride and headed down into the depths of The Leaky Cauldron to find those dumb animals.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/001_zpslqc8gcdr.jpg
Ugh, do we really have to? Crookshanks will be fine!

Back down to the dusty basement with us. Just two feet in front of Harry and Hermione, the animals are waiting.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/002_zpsv4ymvgl5.jpg
I am glad they waited here this whole time - who knows what we would have done if they’d continued to run.

The two of them run through a previously locked door, into Cellar 2.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/003_zps7qrulutb.jpg
You can tell it’s a new area because it’s blue!

New dungeon, new adventures.

These adventures include a locked door!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/004_zps0qlalaoq.jpg
Are you sure, Harry? I mean, that giant lock could mean anything.

Not to worry though. We have Hermione Granger, smartest witch of her age and the master of unlocking, with us today. Hermione, show us how it’s done!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/005_zpszu1nkwvw.jpg
Seriously. Who even are you?

Hermione Granger. Useless.

It’s fine, we’ll keep it cool. There are some stairs to go down instead.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/006_zpsnwp7b6y4.jpg
Huh, these stairs look…

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/007_zpsntv3ha1w.jpg
YES THANK YOU HARRY

Tom should really consider getting this place fixed up. Someone’s going to break their neck trying to get around these cellars.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/008_zpssuficgmp.jpg
Okay, I suppose Hermione is known for her Reparo skills…

You can switch characters in the field! Depending on what spell you need, you can switch between Harry and Hermione, and I guess Ron, if he were around. Harry has Lumos and Flipendo, while Hermione has Reparo. I am guessing Ron has Alohomora, but I don’t really know why he has anything.

I equip Hermione, and…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/009_zpstwcz5a7b.jpg
Stair-fixer-o!

The path is opened. Time to move on.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/010_zpsiunvwode.jpg
At least I would…

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/011_zpsleao384x.jpg
…if Hermione would just SHUT UP

Honestly she just keeps talking and talking.

I get a bit of a reprieve in a battle.

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/012%201_zpsctii71hu.jpg
A palette swap bat. That’s enough to distract me for now.

But yes! Hermione can join us in battle too! She even has unique attacks to use.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/013_zpsnpwnjpaz.jpg
I… do not know what this is

I just stick to Flipendo (duh), and take out the bats. There are no more new enemies – just rats and bats over and over.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/014_zps2pqfgdnp.jpg
The ghoul has a friend. Another ghoul.

Hermione also has some unique equipment that only she can wear.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/015_zpsv5zutpeu.jpg
Pity, really. Harry would look so good in that Bracelet.

Let’s just get this sorted out…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/016_zpsksdu75wv.jpg
Uhhhh *shudder*

The art and models in this game are terrifying. Lifted straight from a nightmare.

Right, I am bored of this place. There’s nothing new or interesting happening.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/018_zpsnbii54yl.jpg
Except this, I guess?

I won’t say no to free EXP!

Getting to the half way point of the dungeon, we catch a glimpse of Ron managing to make his way through the cellar by himself.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/019_zpszuczsobm.jpg
Strong independent man, who don’t need no Boy Who Lived

He even helps us cross a small gap!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/021_zpshoxjghvp.jpg
Thanks for making yourself useful, Ronald

We must be getting close to the end now, just need to keep moving…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/020_zpszmuzlhm3.jpg
OH GOD BE QUIET!

A few more battles out of the way, and we get to our destination.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/022_zps6w6mdowz.jpg
There you are, you stupid fat cat.

I wonder where Scabbers is at? Oh no. Crookshanks must have ate him! What are we going to do? Hermione, think of something!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/023_zpshqyjtytg.jpg
Not exactly what I had in mind…

Naughty cat indeed. I guess… we better go break the news to Ron.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/024_zps4ccvcteu.jpg
These broken stairs will give us a bit more time to think up a reasonable story.

Look, Ron. We found Crookshanks… but Scabbers… Mate, I’m guessing you didn’t find him?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/025_zpsvfxfvhwl.jpg
Oh uh. Neat. Nevermind.

It wasn’t just Crookshanks... You probably could have looked after your rat a little bit better, Ron.

But regardless, I need to go get that treasure chest. I’m sure something good is gonna be in there…

Haha, nevermind, we get walked right out of the cellar.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/026_zps1a0us2gp.jpg
LET ME BACK IN

The door tells me no, so I guess I better just move on.

Round the corner is my favourite parents, the Weasleys!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/027_zpsooc0x3t1.jpg
What, already?

This is a terrible plot device that they keep using. Hurry up, and finish up your little job, because the Hogwarts Express is leaving in literally 3 seconds. You’re going to be late!

Luckily for us, the magical clock keeps us on time.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/028_zpsbwyqclkk.jpg

Though it is nowhere near as strange as the time that Harry turned into the spawn of Satan

Also, is it just me or does Harry here look like a young Patrick Swayze in glasses?

Finally, I don't think 13-year-old girls should be wearing lipstick... nor should they have no chin.

He does look a bit like Patrick Swayze. But then, he probably looks like many things, and the pixels just leave it to your imagination.

Also, I don't think that's lipstick. It just kind of looks like her mouth is bleeding all over her non-chin.

To Hogwarts!

Ah, the Hogwarts Express, here to take us to where our dreams all do come true. If our dreams include almost being killed by a whole multitude of things. The joys!

But yes, we really ought to go find a seat.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/101_zpsbgsi6jrq.jpg
It’s a little bit ginger in here…

Ah, the Weasleys. It looks like the whole team is here! Including everyone’s favourite: Percy. Why is he here instead of with his prissy girlfriend?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/102_zpstukqstna.jpg
Maybe he just wants to look out for his weird flat-faced sister

At no point do they tell you which Gred or Feorge is which. I suppose it won’t matter in the long run, because I am 100% sure that they will have no input on the story.

Apparently they don’t want to sit with the Dream Team. I don’t know why they wouldn’t, and I am slightly offended that they shun us so. Well, who needs them anyway!

To the next compartment!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/106_zpszr23csfz.jpg
Looks like someone has been borrowing Hermione’s lipstick…

Oh, it’s the Slytherins. Crabbe’s vacant stare… Horrifying. Let’s take a closer look.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/107_zpswioamvnr.jpg
Draco’s had a bit of work done, I think!

Unsurprisingly, there’s no room in here for Gryffindors. Not that they had much banter anyway – lots of scoffing and mudblood-ing. Best move on.

The next compartment is nice and quiet and empty.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/110_zpsrtjpkvzl.jpg
Except for Prof Weird Nose here

Our team just stand and stare at the man. Although, who can blame them… I wouldn’t be able to take my eyes of his face either.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/111_zpsz3yodvv9.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/112_zpsxm03qrtx.jpg
I guess she’s been reading Hogwarts: A Future.

Thank goodness for our unending fount of knowledge, who cannot cast basic unlocking charms.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/113_zpshsqmztsz.jpg
Why, his nose is perfectly normal from this angle!

Somehow the three of them haven’t managed to wake the guy up yet. They also don’t consider it odd that a professor is travelling on the student transport. They just accept Hermione’s explanation and move on.

Luckily, there’s a distraction!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/114_zpsqospydpv.jpg
Why’s the rum gone?

Of course, Harry the Hero has to go investigate. Why can he just not stay put for once?

Outside the compartment, we run into another familiar face.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/115_zpse8zwzyuq.jpg
There’s a single white pixel that implies he has buck-teeth. You know who it is from that alone!

What do you want, Neville? You only ever talk to me when you’ve lost your dumb pet, or…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/116_zpsc6vgc13w.jpg
smurf off mate

No. Go to the baggage car yourself. You’re a big boy, you can look after yourself.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/118_zpsy2qidctw.jpg
That’s not… I don’t…

Ugh, fine. I’ll go find your stupid toad. But let me tell you this, boyo – I won’t be doing this again.

And so, the trio start their investigation of the rest of the train. Here are some highlights!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/119_zpssc2c64uk.jpg
I call this one the minority compartment

I don’t think it was intentional that it ended up this way… but… All of these guys locked up in the one compartment…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/120_zpsgtqid3ka.jpg
The ginger totally counts

Yeah.

Anyway, here’s the rest of the students that were peppered around the rest of the train.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/125_zpsclrqe5hk.jpg
I saw multiples of the top two, with different hair colours. Even the students get palette swapped!

The portraits aren’t too bad, in all honesty. I like the amount of detail they have put in many of them. That’s about the best compliment I can give.

As I approach the baggage cart…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/124_zpsqdjzl8dm.jpg
Spoooooooky!

The lights mysteriously go out! This isn’t good. I better get Neville’s stupid toad and get back before we trip over some Slytherins or something.

I take a single step into the baggage cart…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/130_zps8yg7qwmx.jpg
Neville, mate, you could have got this thing by yourself. He’s practically hanging out at the doorway

UGH. So much work. Right let’s grab the little… well… toad…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/131_zpsw12xrley.jpg
What was that?!

A sudden chill filled the carriage, and Harry was knocked out.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/132_zpsxlplrzsb.jpg
Don’t worry Harry, the foetal position always works

Ron and Hermione have to work quick to do… something?



Honestly, what am I supposed to do? The Dementors are coming… We know nothing about fending them off…

GIVE ME A SIGN GAME!

And so it did.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/133_zpswtkndcel.jpg
A whole 10 EXP!

This thing started flashing after a bit – indicating that I had to Fliiiiiiiiiiipendo it to lock the carriage doors. Why the hell these doors aren’t closed to begin with… I don’t know.

But with the doors locked, Harry is now safe from harm


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/134_zpsxfdeqx9h.jpg
loljk!

The dementor kicks (?) down the door. I mean, the door shattered into a million pieces. Maybe the Dementor’s Kiss works on solid objects.

I think that’s the end for our heroes. It’s been a short ride, but we did what we could…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/135_zpsasjhixva.jpg
Professor Big Nose!

We’re saved! He doesn’t cast any magic, just tells the thing to piss off. And the dementor was all “Aye, alright, I guess. I’ll catch you later” and floats off. What a man.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/136_zpswjg2jds1.jpg
He is trained in the same deductive reasoning as Hermione

So, it’s a dementor, eh? So what exactly is a dementor? Oh! It’s from Azkaban. Right. That doesn’t help much, to be honest. Can you… tell us a bit more…?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/137_zpsqthknyf4.jpg
Nope, alright then. Let’s just get going.

Why does Hermione need to do this? Why can’t the conductor just get the train going again? What is Lupin going to do for this period?

…Probably go back to sleep.


Here we are, left with another choice.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/139_zpsybnhz1j1.jpg
I did promise to utilise Won-Won…

Here we go. Ron has nothing equipped. I have nothing to equip to him. The bracelets! Why won’t you wear the bracelets?! Oh god help me.

The battles… the battles…

Ron has the exact same spells as Harry in battle. Except he doesn’t have any duo spells, which leaves me at a real disadvantage.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/142_zpsrbctt5yx.jpg
AND NO LEVEL UPS UGH

I think Ron’s image here is the most haunting of them all. I think it’s the lack of face. Harry and Hermione had… features, I guess? He’s just… a matchstick.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/143_zps1uetyuel.jpg
Pepperup Potion, you say?

Unfortunately Pepperup Potion is not what I need. These battles have left me scarred. I need… I need… Wiggenweld…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/144_zpsr0r4ectq.jpg
Look at that health, man. That’s… one battle!

This is not going to go well. I heal up, using two of my four potions. Time to press on.

This guy got a different picture from the rest of them. So weird.

Not even a full heal. THE GRAND WIGGENWELD IS USELESS.

RON IS GOING TO DIE.

Scraping my way through the battles…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/152_zpslee3f4go.jpg
And still not a level to show for it

…Ron finally reaches his destination.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/153_zpsyttimfli.jpg
I AM SAVED

But hold on a second.

Students aren’t allowed in the baggage car.

But. BUT.

To get food from the buffet car, they need to go through the baggage car?

WHY COULDN’T NEVILLE DO THIS HIMSELF.


So much outrage. Look. Just give me some chocolate, woman. I can’t… deal with this.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/154_zpsyouqvxpm.jpg
HOW MUCH!?

I swear I am being ripped off. Fine. I don’t care.

I just… need to rest or something. Let’s go back to Harry and finish this up.


Back through the baggage car with us!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/155_zps65ow2o6q.jpg
JESUS CHRIST NO MORE PLEASE

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/156_zpsw3lr3und.jpg
Chocolate: Dangerous Business

I guess they force feed Harry some chocolate somehow, since he’s unconscious and all, but it seems to work and he wakes up.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/157_zpszbhqtwpc.jpg
It was probably Ron, to be honest. He got a beating.

After a moment of stony silence, with nobody sure what to say in answer to this question, a disembodied voice floats through the train.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/158_zpszaghr0td.jpg
Thank god

We made it to Hogwarts in one piece. Part of me… honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to make it.
But so ends this chapter…

How does Neville look thinner than Harry?

Also, it is a bit strange that there is a snake on the Hogwarts Express. I thought students were only allowed to bring an owl OR a cat OR a toad? Also, if that's the case then why is Ron allowed a rat?

The Weasleys have a bit of a record for bringing wrong pets to Hogwarts. I mean, Scabbers was Percy's rat to begin with. Then Ginny bought a Pygmy Puff and took that to Hogwarts as her pet.

This family should be banned from taking pets to Hogwarts.

I was actually watching Greys Anatomy when I played, so I couldn't hear anything. I am assuming that there was nothing said.

Is it Draco?

One of the students looks like Jinx but I'm not going to say which one.

WELCOME TO HOGWARTS YEAR THREE

Ah yes, the classic entrance hall. It’s like coming home again. Except this time home is significantly less 3D model-y.

But, it has been a long day for everyone. Time to find my way to the common room.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/302_zpsgdetnlqf.jpg
But first, something that never happens

Looks like Dork-o wants to have a chat. SQUARE GO MATE I got my back-up nerdy chick and ginger dude.

…we got nothing on your guys


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/303_zpsjxpkftzu.jpg
How did you find out about this?!

Classic Draco line. Potter, you’re trout. Hahahahaha!

After these harsh words, I think Harry really needs to get to bed. Y’know, so he can apply some burn heal and also cry about his dead parents.

But first, I chat to some of the students. Hello fellow Gryffindor! How do you do today?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/304_zpswlp5gi57.jpg
Rude

Look man, I was just saying hello. No need to get so damned snippy with me. Screw you.

Surely, the Hufflepuff will be nicer to me…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/305_zps3l4ouqu4.jpg
See friend, that’s how you’re nice to people

Of course, I ignore the nice Hufflepuff girl and head into the Great Hall. For investigative purposes.

There are battles to be had! I can take them on, with my party of three! Awww yeah, nothing can stop me now!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/306%201_zpstem87dnl.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/306_zpsxxq1kxss.jpg
And here we have the fabled magical snapping turtle…

With a wave of a few wands, I cast Incendio and Flipendo and…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/307_zps1gxcqef9.jpg
Ahhhhh crap

Oh, geez. Level 15? Uh. Yeah. How about them spiders, eh? You’re pretty neat dudes… I’m just uh…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/308_zpsopbhnj7e.jpg
I FEEL DIRTY

Just gonna head over here, alright? Yeah? I’ll be back in just a second. You guys wait right there!

Needless to say, I did not return later, and I spent a lot of time avoiding every single battle I came up against. Which was a lot of them.

What I learned was exploration is frowned upon and I should never do it again.


At the top end of the Great Hall, I stumble upon a portrait room. Shockingly, it’s full of portraits.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/309_zpsudabezee.jpg
Hey there baby, how’s life as a painting on a wall?

What? You want me to go inside you?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/310_zpsuhdnrdre.jpg
Woah where am I

And as if by magic…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/311_zpscjpdjh0n.jpg
Sixth floor, baby

You know what I like about this? It tells you where you are. At no point did I find myself unable to navigate the many halls of Hogwarts. It’s almost like the game creators… learned something and evolved their design.

It has restored some of my faith!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/312_zps3wjcmc9h.jpg
Me too, girl, me too

I don’t think this game could do anything else to ease my doubts!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/313_zpsof5odh8q.jpg
Oh god!

They’ve got the Grand Staircase! The simple fact that this pleases me can only state how little faith I have in the Gameboy versions of these Harry Potter games! Many tears of joy.


Anyway, one floor up is where the Gryffindor Common Room is. Let’s go!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/314_zps6dwsix7a.jpg
What a handsome fellow

…and explore some more.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/315_zps0zyc8m6h.jpg
I am… regretting this decision right now

At this point I am mildly afraid of where I’ll end up.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/316_zpsfaeey3ym.jpg
Whew!

So, it’s pretty neat. It seems that all the portraits lead back to the Portrait Room, so if you know which ones go where… You’ve got easy and safe access all over the joint. I didn’t explore this too much further, but I did think it was pretty neat.

Again, another point on the “You’re a wee bit of alright, game”.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/318_zpssmhrdrck.jpg
Could you not have told me this earlier?

Anyway, to the Common Room.

For real this time. Exploration gets me killed, remember.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/319_zpsu87dsyin.jpg
The detail on the Fat Lady is horrifying

Everyone’s favourite Prof Dame Maggie Smith McGonagall has some things to tell us about the new school year.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/320_zpszv7jqgzr.jpg
Professor Lupin?! Say it ain’t so!

Shockingly the new teacher that we met earlier is actually the DADA teacher. But! Who is the mystery other new teacher? Pressing buttons leads us to our answer.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/323_zpscxn6ugtg.jpg
Hagrid! A teacher?!

Along with his gamekeeper duties? I hope he’s getting paid double for all this extra work he’s doing.

Prof McG has more to say though (god she never stops)


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/324_zpszqheqllb.jpg
Oooooohhhhhhhh bad Hermione!

Uh oh, what’s Hermione done now?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/325_zpsn8tcbjfu.jpg
You read my mind, Harry

So Hermione, what was going on? You got detention or something?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/326_zpse1wbqiax.jpg
That is vague enough to satisfy my curiosities.

Professor McGonagall has had enough of all the kids still being awake.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/327_zpsjd7o5rnz.jpg
For some reason all the Gryffindors have Transfiguration?

She’s gonna be having a busy class. But she’s right, time for bed for our students. Not that we have much choice in the matter.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/328_zps0kwsyatd.jpg
~Transition screeeeen~


Harry just wakes up and…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/330_zps8ixcekj1.jpg
Dammit Hermione, let a boy get some coffee

Fine. No breakfast for us. Let’s go learn to Transfigure things.

BUT FIRST!

Exploration!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/331_zpsvhmhzs4h.jpg
I think we have our first stop

As per expectations with exploring, let’s chat to our friends.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/332_zpsm48ghh2v.jpg
Thank you, friend. Much more helpful than that last douchebag

Fred and George’s shop is much easier to get access to than in either of the previous Harry Potter entries I’ve played. No god damn stealthy parts.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/333_zpsqcqz5fom.jpg
Hello, let me see your wares

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/334_zpssjxum9uh.jpg
I see you have lots of things for sale!

Miscellaneous first, I think.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/335_zpsssncmnku.jpg
I can buy them? Aww :(

Grand Wiggenwelds have lost all their rare beauty. They’re just common rubbish now. Well, let’s see what other stuff I can buy. Maybe some cool new gear?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/336_zpsv63kvdr4.jpg
I’ll just need to go check the corners of my trunk for more sickles

Maybe I’m supposed to save up and buy some of these later…

I probably could use them now though, since I found myself in a battle. Again.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/337%201_zpsvybnbnfy.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/337_zpsnatzwi0f.jpghttp://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/338_zpsicaoevoe.jpg
And here we have the rare green snapping turtle and the Neanderthal knight

For some reason I actually try to take these guys on. I was feeling confident until…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/339_zps35cu0yip.jpg
What?

Which was quickly followed by a cheeky wee…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/340_zpsez1i0nf1.jpg
Ugh I hate this

See that brownie point you got earlier game? No. It’s gone. Why would you not heal Ron back to full health after they “went to bed”? Why would you keep him as no health? Why? In what universe does this make sense! What were you at? +2 on the good points? +1 now, mate. You better think about what you’ve done.

In my rage I stomp all the way down the stairs and through to Transfiguration class. I find it quickly thanks to this dude


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/332_zpsm48ghh2v.jpg
Thank you for reminding me, son

However, the first floor that was referring to is actually the ground floor so… That’s another mark off, game. Why can’t you count floors?! Up the first flight of stairs is not the second floor! They’re falling thick and fast now that I’m annoyed.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/343_zpshzglibvl.jpg
We made it in one piece. Sort of

Ah classrooms. What will we be learning today, Prof?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/344_zpsbt6cv6uz.jpg
Ooooh, Animagi. This could be interesting

She shows off her skills


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/346_zpscinypzfw.jpg
To be honest, I can’t unsee Predator mouth for some reason

The class are absolutely out of control after seeing this amazing feat of magic


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/347_zpssgcxffoa.jpg
*crickets*

McGoogle isn’t very happy about this


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/348_zpsfkhorae6.jpg
Maybe they just don’t like cats

We never do find out what got into the class. It was just left as a vague comment with no satisfactory conclusion. McGonagall gets over it quickly, so I suppose I should too.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/349_zpscf026yrf.jpg
Wait a second here…

What happened to the Animagi lesson? I learned nothing about them! Cats?!

The fact that I have a “challenge” coming up frightens me something terrible. Not because I am afraid that they’ll be anything like the “challenges” I faced in CoS… but the fact that these challenges even exist. I hope this isn’t just a waste of time.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/350_zps4rhehiyz.jpg
HULK SMASH

What the hell? What the absolute HELL does this have to do with Transfiguration? I mean really? REALLY? REALLY?

You’re now at -1. All the goodwill you had built up, dashed. In a matter of moments. I hope you’re happy, game.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/351_zpsoehrqpd4.jpg
I wish I could run away like this cat

Sigh. Into the maze we go. Ugh.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/352_zpsalqu33i3.jpg
And this looks just like the rest of the castle

Not even any effort to make the dungeon place look even slightly different. Game… you’re losing respect fast.

Luckily the battles are a bit more reasonable.



http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/353%201_zpsmtdbcndp.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/353_zpsktx9kou8.jpg
This guy is sad because all he wants to do is dance

I dispatch these guys with no bother, and come up against my first puzzle.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/355_zpsqmt7zt8z.jpg
BUTTONS!

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/356_zpsadzkphka.jpg
Flipendo does nothing? Well, I’m out of ideas.

I spend an embarrassingly long time here shooting flipendo at the buttons. The more I do it… it doesn’t make things happen any faster.

I at some point decide to just venture slightly to the right… and I discover the true puzzle.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/357_zpso6cqk6jn.jpg
BLOCKS!

I was half right. I had to flipendo the blocks on to the buttons.

Right. Time to press on. More battles are consumed and fun is had. I guess.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/360_zpsemqmeiml.jpg
Ahahaha, the turtle farts fire

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/361%201_zpssy3pcazb.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/361_zpsitfte8nf.jpg
Ayyyy ladies

Another puzzle room comes up.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/362_zpstfb686wn.jpg
oh no what do I do now

Luckily this time I am a super pro at this block moving nonsense.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/363_zps7u7xpds5.jpg
BOOM

I am so pro. TOO PRO FOR THIS GAME.

A bit further down the line…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/364_zpscevru7ml.jpg
Why are you here?

No seriously. Why are Slytherins here? This is a Gryffindor class. How did they get in here? Did McGonagall just go “Aye, alright kids, you can hang around in here”? Seriously. Why?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/366_zps2ebhfumw.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/367_zpsaqagjlbg.jpg
Ahahahaha I cannot stop laughing at Crabbe’s sprite

The battle ain’t no thang (probably because I don’t have Ron in the party, sorry Ron but you’ve not done me proud) and I get some awesome bootay.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/368_zps5p1wzoec.jpg
Only 8 sickles? Why is Malfoy hanging out with these poor folk

For some reason, only Hermione can wear the hat. Probably because it’d mess up Harry’s cool look, and Hermione could probably use it to cover her frightfully untameable hair.


It must be over now, I think. We’ve beaten the “boss” of the dungeon, and they ran off. Can I not just leave?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/371_zpsy47rofvz.jpg
NOPE

AAAARGH

Luckily this room is just flipendoing the blocks in the one direction they can move. I get out in no time.

So Professor, what do I get for all my hard work?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/372_zpsmxe3in0r.jpg
P-Professor? Anything?

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/373_zpsqyhfhnu9.jpg
I GUESS NOT

The bitch just blanked me and walked away!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/374_zpsyz8naqyy.jpg
Thx Prof, but we learned this in First Year…?

I guess she just wanted to congratulate Harry in front of the class by teaching him AND ONLY HIM a new spell.

But finally class is over. Surely now it must be time to relax. After all, the school day is just one lesson and then bed?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/375_zps9hhzdna8.jpg
This… is gonna be fun…

A Petrificus Totalus spell book? Why the hell would you need a whole book just to learn one spell?

The Great Doors of Hogwarts

Many months later, Harry leaves the Transfiguration classroom and heads outside onto the sunny Hogwarts grounds. I hope Hagrid won’t mind that we’re late!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/502_zpshh1emmuf.jpg
Uh sure, there totally is a Whomping Willow here

After a long trek past all the dangerous shrubberies far away in the distance, we get to Hagrid’s place. I am ready to learn how to care for magical creatures!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/504_zpskbknz9sf.jpg
Whenever Hagrid says this, only bad things come

Okay. Uh. Bring it on, man. We can take it. We can deal with whatever it is you’ve got planned.

Of course, the plans have a wrench thrown into them by that terrible person – MALFOY!!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/505_zpsvqfay7kz.jpg
How could you ‘mislay’ the Monster Book of Monsters?

It’s fine though. Hagrid will have extra copies. He’s a teacher. He will be prepared for this. He will.




http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/508_zps7vesymdv.jpg
DAMMIT HAGRID!

Of course. Of course. Something goes wrong, and the great Harry Potter has to step up to save the day. What a jerk.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/509_zpseyk0awrh.jpg
But we only need three. Why do I need to find five?

How did they even escape? They’re books. Monster books that snap and snarl, but books nonetheless! This reward better be damned worth it.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/511_zpspfjdso9y.jpg
Ron pulls the short straw again. Spongify, really?

Hagrid has a garden? Do you not just mean… the Forbidden Forest?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/513_zps4x7ohczs.jpg
I guess not.

Another maze. Everything is a maze. Also why does Hagrid need a garden maze? I have so many issues right now, and most of them are related to this game.

Battle times! I generally kick butt in this ol’ maze.

What are those weird worm things? They’re kinda creepy with their teeth…

Hold on to your hats, you won’t believe what they are!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/525_zpsnkeaoozo.jpg
…Flobberworms? Really? Have you even read the source material? Do you even know what a book is?

They all go down pretty quick, what with the new fancy spells Hagrid handed us the books to learn. Gives me time to focus on finding the damn Monstery books.

But first!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/516_zpspftgzcba.jpg
It’s rafting time!

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/517_zpsizw7ygzx.jpg
Wheeeeee yay treasures!

Nothing of interest inside, sadly. Just more magic frogs. Not nearly exciting enough. But how do I get off of this little island?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/518_zpsiq7fylod.jpg
Thank goodness you are here Hermione!

Glacio!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/519_zps8p52sef0.jpg
Bing!

A handy dandy little floating platform helps us get over to the angry bouncing book!

It’s time to take you out, buddy!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/520_zpskbmuqpas.jpg
So evil. So Monster. So book.

I decided to take this time to show off the new spells! First up…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/521_zpsr4wuqg0u.jpg
DIFFINDO!

It is pretty powerful against these guys. I wonder if it’s because the Monster Book of Monsters is a book and Diffindo is shredding the paper to bits? I don’t know.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/522_zpskac18ie0.jpg
SPONGIFY!

Status effects are dumb. Of course Ron gets this spell. Spongify. Geez. Apparently I got bored of this and didn’t grab any screens of Glacius, but whatever. It’s an ice attack.

Back to the aimless wandering around the Forbidden Forest Hagrid’s Garden Maze.



http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/523_zpsecoh2rd6.jpg
Not only is it useful for slicing up paper, it can also bring down sheets on trees!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/524_zpskxo3aira.jpg
BOOM!

Take that spiders. Tryin’ to stop us getting to Aragog, I don’t think so.
More exploration leads to more out-of-battle spell usage!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/528_zpsiz4gxmqu.jpg
Wow.

Alright. Useless in battle, dumb on the field. You can tell it’s supposed to be bouncy because it’s got a spring on it (if you squint).


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/529_zpsbguy7htu.jpg
SPROING!

Up here…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/530_zpsyjizdx5m.jpg
Another Book!

He is taken out quick (because I am pro) and it’s time to move on.

I, however, come across a stumbling block in my plans to continue playing this excellent little video game.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/531_zpsqlgykoho.jpg
Why can I not walk up this ledge? Why can I not get any closer? Are shadows evil?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/532_zpstnsqrgpo.jpg
There’s nothing here either! There’s nowhere to go?!

Now, I’m sure you’re all super smart and get entirely what I was supposed to do, and I am a complete dunce because how could I not see it?

Did you figure out the solution to this puzzle?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/533_zpskno5eg7f.jpg
LUMOS!

I genuinely do not know if I had been staring at this video game too much, but I legitimately could not recognise that as a pitfall, and not a ledge. It took me too long to get this. But, I got there in the end, feeling like a bit of a tit.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/534_zpss2v8pntg.jpg
Book number three

That’s enough. Can I not just go back to Hagrid’s now?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/535_zpsnle0lehx.jpg
Nope, I guess not. Book Four!

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/537_zpsbuyul6i6.jpg
And finally… Number Five.

And the exit! It’s just up here! We’re almost free from this nightmare!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/538_zps4ml1axjm.jpg
Holy crap.

I think I can see where this game’s budget has gone. Getting that Venomous Tentacula to look so good on the field… amazing.

Just…

Amazing.

I do not know quite what this image is supposed to be. Some angry toast?

Either way. The amazing pixel monster is taken out pretty quickly and I can finally get back to Hagrid so he can lose the stupid replacement books again.

Magically teleported to the Whomping Willow

Hagrid takes the books and gives us our eternal reward.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/544_zpsv9uqyrod.jpg
I… thanks?

What use is this to anyone? A pocket watch? I can’t even think of any dumb plot points in Prisoner of Azkaban that would require this.

Ugh, whatever. Let’s just learn about magical things.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/545_zpshpndy9gy.jpg
Yes, thank you Hermione. You are always the voice of reason.

Over slightly to the north, the usual Hogwarts fun is going on.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/546_zps9xpfzhuv.jpg
HAH! Classic Draco.

Although really, why is Hagrid a teacher. As much as Malfoy is a dick, it’s fair enough… Hagrid is not qualified to be teaching anyone. Although, how do people get qualified to teach at Hogwarts? They let pretty much anyone in…

Before we get too much further into the inner workings of Hogwarts, Harry shouts down Malfoy. Because of course he does.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/547_zpsbl7wnxmu.jpg
HAH! Classic Draco, again. He has such cutting insults.

Anyway, bring on the creatures!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/548_zpsfedflivn.jpg
Fancy.

Here is everyone’s favourite hippogriff, Buckbeak. He is so regal.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/549_zpsnqhc9iwo.jpg
Burn

Careful now, Draco. Hippogriffs don’t like being insulted!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/550_zpsrsqipmbq.jpg
OH NO!

Rearing up on his hind legs, Buckbeak lashes out at the child. While facing the wrong way. So much damage!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/551_zpsnndiyf2y.jpg
”What have I done?” “I just told you – you killed me!”

Hagrid escorts the invalid (the dead invalid) away from the scene of the murder-crime.

Harry decides to take a crack at making friends with Buckbeak. If anyone could, it’d be the Boy Who Lived right? A hippogriff couldn’t kill a guy with that name!

How to Make Friends: Harry Potter Style

Again, I did not make this up. He legitimately stands beside Buckbeak, while the hippogriff looks in the opposite direction, and then they’re friends. They couldn’t do… anything to make it look like Harry actually did something?

But the riding Buckbeak happens.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/556_zpsqsttx1ou.jpg
God help me

Okay, I can do this. The instructions are simple enough…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/557_zpsru8ipp7b.jpg
OH GOD WHAT DO I DO

Six minutes and ninety seconds later…


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/558_zpsbf1zwvkw.jpg
I think I did not too bad

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/559_zpsctbtidzg.jpg
I think… I might just…

DO THIS MINIGAME AGAIN


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/560_zps9ezp01cz.jpg
That’s more like it.

I am glad I got some points. I would have been so ashamed if I only got 0 points in this simple minigame.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/561_zpspsyiikta.jpg
Ahahahaha, good one

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/562_zpssda0ptxn.jpg
AHAHAHAHAHA not a chance mate

We are finally done here with Care of Magical Creatures. Thank god. What’s next?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/563_zpswi5gjvzz.jpg
I see.

Oh lord.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/564_zpsd3wxmlqi.jpg
This is going to be great

I just wonder how they are going to make Potions class into a maze puzzle. I am sure they'll manage it somehow. I mean, how else can they do classes?

Harry awoke from a dreadful nightmare one that felt like it lasted at least twenty-six years. He was drenched in a cold sweat. “Harry, what's wrong?!” exclaimed Hermione.

“I had the most awful dream that I had a bratty son in the future that time travelled and almost allowed Voldemort to be victorious with the help of... and I can't quite believe it myself, but help from Voldemort's daughter!”

Ron and Hermione exchanged a glance, before laughing. “Oh Harry, that sounds as ridiculous as the two of us getting married and living happily ever after! Now come on, let's get to potions class.”



http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/001_zpsjzt3gqq3.jpg
We're back!

Yes, after many months the best Harry Potter games Let's Play series on the Eyes on Final Fantasy forum is back! And what better way to start us off than getting incredibly lost.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/002_zpsqiiogjjj.jpg
Oh lord, I don't remember where the castle is.

But fortunately for me today, the exploration leads me to some neato prizes.

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/005_zpsdqjkerlv.jpg
I think this is the first time a Harry Potter game has not kicked me in the head for daring to explore.

I will spare you the endless hunt for Hogwarts, and take you straight to where the action is. That's right: the Dungeons and Potions Class!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/006_zpszqvcszdo.jpg
No, the chest did not provide such excellent gifts this time :(

Harry, Ron and Hermione get all cosy around their cauldron, ready for whatever terrible minigame potion-making was going to be. Oh god, please don't let it be too terrible. I don't think I can handle it. Please Professor Snape, say it ain't so!?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/008_zpsc1u23xwv.jpg
ermagerd it's preffesar snop

Ahahahahahaha, brilliant. No matter what this class throws at me, my glee will not be dampened.

Frickin' derp Snape


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/009_zpscorqifep.jpg
I WONDER WHO THE VOLUNTEER IS GOING TO BE HMMMMM

Yet, to my surprise...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/010_zpsvkqdo6rh.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/011_zps5lr6cawa.jpg
I have an important choice here...

Why the heck would you not choose Harry? I mean, he is the main character. He will be fighting the final battle in this dumb game. Why would you not want him to get as much experience as possible? Unless you have some great desire to get Ron and Hermione alone together...

Anyway, we get our task.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/013_zpsu5dqiiii.jpg
What an interesting recipe...

Anyway, it shouldn't be that hard getting this stuff from the store room. In we go!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/014_zps8tvdqcfq.jpg
Oh.

I know I made a joke earlier about this. But I was kind of hoping that it wouldn't come to this. Why would the potions class have a maze? Why? There is no need for any of this!

But it is the same old, same old. Use the right spells to get past the right obstacles.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/015_zpskyqasn9a.jpg
Uh maybe Ron would have been a good idea here, what with his famous Alohomora spell usage

We also get some new and not a recolour enemies here! Salamanders!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/016_zps5uw4i2wu.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/017_zpsct2zaxr5.jpg
Li'l cuties

So cute in fact, that they drop super cute equippable items too!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/018_zpscnfy4xgc.jpg
Sadly Harry cannot be adorned with such cuteness

You may think I would be mildly pleased with this turn of events, but it just led to another nitpick. Because these games can never let me be happy for any length of time.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/019_zps9fkoyxod.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/020_zpsffyrlyyb.jpg
Sure thing Hermione, just put that bow on your wrist, why not, go for it

What do you MEAN the bow isn't a hat? How can you even wear a bow and a hat at the same time? Why would you even want to? I can barely understand the logic.

With a change of topic almost as quick as the leaps this game pulls off, we press on into the maze. It's really not very maze like at all. Straight lines.

I find my first item!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/021_zpssnpznkhh.jpg
uh no comment moving swiftly on

More palette swap enemies!

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/023_zpsxqfw1vzh.jpg
Mortis bats these are. That's all I got for you

Honestly, this game is so incredibly samey. There's nothing new I can say since it keeps throwing the same things at me over and over again. Same enemies. Same dungeons. Same tasks. It doesn't help that none of the places really look very different. I apologise for the boring commentary.

Anyway, the less I chat about how boring this is, the faster I will get through this section. HERE ARE THE THINGS I FOUND.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/024_zpsnb75j6sj.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/025_zpskdyqjj2t.jpg
At least neither of these look... questionable

Only a few more bits to gather and then I can get the hell out of here! But first...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/026_zpswcbxzi4c.jpg
Why the god damn hell is there a troll in here

Why has Professor Snape sent students into this maze when he knows full god damn well there is a troll just hanging around? It's a river troll too. Why is there a river troll in a castle?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/027_zpspuhbc6xu.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/028_zpsefljjfoz.jpg
He certainly ain't impressed with me

The river troll is also level 20 compared to my... not level 20. Things ain't great.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/029_zpsi6udb9ea.jpg
ow

Luckily I find out that he appears to be weak to incendio! So I of course spend the rest of the battle trying out all my other spells to see if they have as much of an effect as incendio.
The results were as follows:


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/030_zps5x1sl58e.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/031_zpsghavvqil.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/032_zpsl2f7koxc.jpg
To say I had some regrets would be a mild understatement

Honestly, this game punishes you for trying things out, to see if other spells do as much damage. Harry has around 30MP? And one incendio does 6MP. Diffindo does 10MP. Vermillious does 3MP. Try out them all and you're already down to less than half your MP. And if it turns out Diffindo is great, well, you're boned. Yes you can use Pepper-Up, but you're usually trapped in a healing cycle because all the enemies hit hard. Unforgiving.

Luckily it still doesn't reset back to an earlier save, and just to the start of the dungeon. With all your progress saved! This time you're going DOWN troll!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/034_zpsniqnwhrc.jpg
Aw yeah, powered up Incendio gonna take you DOWN

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/035_zps4ehto727.jpg
That's more like it

The troll also has some useful drops


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/036_zpsok9hdy2l.jpg
Snape sent students down with the knowledge that a troll held some of the required items for the potion sure why not

And just behind our troll friend, we have our last ingredient!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/037_zpsxsrrq692.jpg
Delicious

Now that we have all the ingredients, time to get back to-


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/038_zpsifbnlaoa.jpg
yes thank you Hermione

A short backtrack through the maze, and we return to the potions class, met with celebrations over our defeat of the river troll in the dungeons.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/039_zpsklve4qge.jpg
You sent us into a maze how can we draw attention to ourselves

They are trying really hard with Snape here. REALLY hard. Too hard, some may say.

Ushered back to our cauldrons, it is time for Ron's stupid question hour


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/040_zps5q8eijzi.jpg
I don't know maybe follow your recipe

Or...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/041_zpsahhgawgu.jpg
Just let Hermione do it. Of course!

We follow her indepth instructions. Herbs in. Ingredients in.



Are herbs not included as ingredients?

Cool I'll roll with it.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/042_zpsr3aukof4.jpg
Somehow this worked

Our potion is a success. What do you think, Professor Snerpe?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/043_zps9lmmauha.jpg
LEVIOSAAAAAAAAAAHHHH

Sheesh, calm the heck down Snape. We just did what you told us to do. In your class. Which was make a potion. Nobody's expecting anything.

Anyway, we get sent away because it's time for...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/044_zpscmyqci8t.jpg
Hooray!

DADA! Everyone's favourite class!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/045_zpsus7mja5c.jpg
Uh oh

I have no idea where this is. God help me. I'll be another few months.

Still marvelling how much Harry and Hermione look like Patrick Swayze and Bran Stark :lol:

Why the hell is Harry not allowed to wear the headband? I know this game came out a few years ago but come on, game. Move with the times!

The potions collection side quest should have been included in the book, I feel. It would have solidified Snape's hatred for Harry by sending him through a maze and death by troll as opposed to just a regular store cupboard.

Sorry Bubba, I have disappointed you by having another post up in a timely manner.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/001_zps6xvlna0k.jpg
crap crap crap crap

Welcome back to this here Let's Play! I don't know how long I'll be wandering aimlessly around, so...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/002_zpsrgn2siwi.jpg
Oh.

Not too long it seems. Snape doesn't have far to walk to get to the staff room. Man am I flying through this game.

Time for learning, Lupin! Lay it on us! I'll just let our cast get us through the text dump explaining why we're going to go into another maze.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/003_zpsrbuu7i03.jpg
A giant bogie? Tee hee I am hilarious

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/004_zpsp9tyazgg.jpg
Hermione of course knows the score

After the lengthy explanation, it's time for Harry to step up to go into the wardrobe or something. This game is so predictable.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/005_zpscmpbtnv4.jpg
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa?!

None of those names are Harry, what is even going on!?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/006_zpspg9tvdr5.jpg
Neville expresses my confusion so eloquently

Part of me is kind of surprised that the game kept to the plot and didn't have Harry partake in this lesson. But then, it sticks to canon at the most random times so I guess I shouldn't be too shocked that this was one of those times.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/007_zpsfzruzna2.jpg
Let it all out of the closet, Lupin! Let it all hang out!

~*~IT'S MINIGAME TIME~*~


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/008_zpsa21ajfxg.jpg
You're damn right it's riddikulus

It's a simple press directional buttons to destroy enemies game, shouldn't be too much of an issue...

What the actual heck. Beaten once again by this terrible game! ONE MORE TIME


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/011_zps9ltybbnk.jpg
TAKE THAT EVIL SNAKE

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/012_zpsa3wbkvoc.jpg
Whew, a more reasonable score. I can continue to show my face around these parts...

Right so after this fun diversion...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/013_zpsppg4bdk6.jpg
I mean, I wasn't really that tired but if you insist...

Harry doesn't feel that it is time for the common room yet. He has some words to have with Lupin.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/014_zpsulqcsfui.jpg
My name is in the title of the game, why was I not allowed to do anything?!

More exposition...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/015_zpsndn1ng8m.jpg
Not Lord Voldemort!

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/016_zpsqrqvpfa9.jpg
Yeah, those dementors that Lupin told to shoo. Real scary Harry.

http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/017_zpsadqml10j.jpg
http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/018_zpst19rlwsm.jpg
Help, you say?

Sounds like more minigames are in my future. I am pretty good at divination, you see. I wonder if that will ever show up?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/019_zpsqdfjmme3.jpg
Lupin has had enough of Harry's complaints

Back to the common room with us, I guess.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/020_zpscva3hq3s.jpg
Just like magic, here we are

Our heroes chill out by the fireplace for a while, not doing very much...

WHEN SUDDENLY


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/021_zpsspr0vgjz.jpg
Looks like we've got a standoff here...

Crookshanks and Scabbers wander around MENACINGLY for a while


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/022_zpsaowkeaxh.jpg
Yeah Hermione, stop Crookshanks from walking around near Scabbers

After some random walking around from everyone involved, Crookshanks chases Scabbers from the Common Room. Dammit kid, keep a hold of your stupid pet.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/024_zpstped9lgb.jpg
What a good friend

So we walk two steps outside of the portrait...


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/025_zpscynaqnka.jpg
Wait, why did you even need Harry's help?

Well... okay then. That was a waste of time. Back to the common room I guess?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/026_zpsniwdnvzy.jpg
Uhhh why is everyone outside?

No really, why??????


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/027_zpsjuqfqavp.jpg
Heard what, exactly?

Hermione, we've been gone for all of a minute. What could have possibly happened? Why did you all leave the common room?!


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/028_zpskgpjcltc.jpg
Oh. It's this.

Right, so they had to bring in the Flight of the Fat Lady. It's an important plot point. But wow this has some terrible implementation. Could they honestly not have found a better way for this to happen? Everyone is suddenly locked out of the common room despite being in the common room 30 seconds before. UGH.

Anyway Sir Cadogan.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/029_zps9qqut8wa.jpg
Here he is

He is definitely a thing.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/030_zpsnykazsj2.jpg
What a fantastic face. They are just getting derpier.

So, uh, what are we doing, game?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/031_zpspsrl5a4u.jpg
What an incredibly stupid question

No Hermione, the Fat Lady would never go by the place that her own portrait is. She is never found here at all! Not a once!

After a brief chat with Cadogan, he agrees to take us to the Fat Lady. Why Harry and the gang need to wander around Hogwarts to find her is beyond me.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/034_zpse0q979fd.jpg
PLOT TWIST

It makes more sense for Ron and Hermione to go, definitely.

ALTERNATIVELY THEY CAN SPEAK TO A TEACHER


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/035_zpsukrkium2.jpg
Sure thing

We speak to some portraits and none of them are any use. Maybe all the ones on the Seventh Floor are just blind. To the staircase! There are millions of portraits there, surely one of them has seen Cadogan or the Fat Lady.


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/037_zps8jl2ug9f.jpg
Who could possibly dislike Cadogan?!

Sidebar: Ahahahaha, that hair.

Either way, score, we know where Cadogan wandered off to.

Did I ever mention that this game is poorly made? Because here's a thing!

Sorry to bother you then ma'am

You will notice that she is approximately one pixel in front of the guy who had seen Cadogan go to the second floor. Where's the consistency? Why did dumb hair see him, but she didn't? Why program this in to the game at all?

Anyway we find Cadogan on the second floor, amazingly.

Well, you knew where she was so was she ever really lost?

I guess we better find out what happened. So tell us, lady – what happened?

Sir Cadogan's moustache isn't that terrible... no reason to flee!

Elaborate a little bit, if you don't mind.

DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNNN

The murderer?! FROM AZKABAN? IN HOGWARTS?! We should warn a teacher! McGonagall! Sirius Black is in the castle?!

O-or that

This is a priority for some reason. Uh alright. Go for it. Better head back to the common room to warn Harry? I just...

Remember kids, Cadogan is now watching over Gryffindor Dorms

Harry is waiting for his buds in their usual spot by the fireplace. Time to tell him the bad news, I guess!

Now don't take this too badly, remember what you didn't promise the Weasleys!

Harry doesn't even get a moment to process this information

Come on girl, give him a moment to think

No need to panic the kid, Ron!

So Harry, what do you think? It's okay, we're all here for you. Open your heart and admit your feelings.

Uhhhhhhhh

Going back to that thing we mentioned before... you know, Sirius Black? Any response to that at all, Harry?


http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/a498/Sheetlebug/Harry%20Potter/052_zpsmebk6llm.jpg
Uhhhhhhhhh

That all? Nothing... about the man who had a direct hand in the death of your parents wandering around Hogwarts? Nothing? Ron, say something to knock some sense into the boy!

Not really what I had in mind...

Let's Players note: I did not cut out anything for comedic effect here. I promise. This is actually how their conversation goes. You couldn't make it up. I just... I got nothing.

Anyway, time for DADA again. I don't know why we have another lesson about 30 minutes after our last DADA class, but sure. Whatever. Til next time.

The guy in that portrait clearly having the same problems 90% of men have when trying to grow a beard.

Head hair? Brown. Beard hair? Ginger.
