After the challenges, you meet Quirrel in a room
(he is actually the enemy). To defeat him, get
him to destroy the 4 large pillars in the room.
The best way is to stand behind them, wait until
he shoots, then move behind the next one. When
they are all gone, you both will fall into a room
with lots of rocks on the floor and the mirror in
the middle. He will walk to the top of the room
and shoot at you. Use the mirror as a shield (it
bounces his shots back at him). After awhile he
will levitate rocks at you. Again, use the mirror
as a shield. When he moves to the bottom of the
room, keep the mirror between you. Shoot the
mirror once with Flipendo and it will swing round
and you can use it as a shield again. It will not
be long before he is defeated.

Don't send me file attachments unless you explain what they are in the
message. And, most importantly, do not flame me for writing a review for
a game you like or don't like. A few days ago I got a very nasty E-mail
from a guy who was pissed because I didn't like Raiders of the Lost Ark
on the Atari and said so. If I write a bad review for a game you like or
a good review for a game you hate, don't flame me. It's perfectly all
right to express opinions, but do it in a good way. The git who flamed
me has since had his E-mail address banned from my account. Suffice it
to say, don't flame me unless you don't want to be able to contact me.
With the legal business out of the way, let's get onto the FAQ.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Philosopher's Stone if you're
British), is based on the popular fantasy novel of the same name by J.
K. Rowling (it's actually pronounced Rolling), the first volume in the
Harry Potter series. Oh yeah, and did you know that the Philosopher's
Stone and Elixir of Life are two slang names for whisky? I am an avid
Potter fan, having read all four books and being eager for the fifth
novel, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, to come out. I have
the PC, GBC and GBA versions of this game, though I like the GBC version
best. The music is very cool, even if it's not right out of the movie.
You might even hear some of these tunes in the PC and GBA versions of
this game. In fact you will. The title screen theme I know for sure is
featured in the GBA version. As for the battle system, it's a turn-based
battle system unlike the GBA and PC games. What's turn-based you ask?
Well, it just means that everyone takes turns attacking each other. You
make your selections from a menu, then battle is joined.
The story of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (or Philosopher's
Stone if you're British), is like this. For almost twenty years the
secret community of witches and wizards in England has lived in fear,
for they are threatened by an evil wizard, Lord Voldemort. But one
night, Voldemort mysteriously disappears after attempting to kill a
small boy, Harry Potter. As nobody could find a better explanation for
Voldemort's strange disappearance, most people thought that something
about Harry had finished Voldemort off. Unfortunately, Voldemort
succeeded in killing Harry's parents. The small boy was sent to live
with his horrible aunt and uncle, the Dursleys, who had a small son
called Dudley. For eleven years, Harry lived without any idea that there
was a secret community of wizards and witches who all knew his name.
The Dursleys did everything in their power to try to keep Harry from
discovering what he really was, but to no avail. For on Harry's eleventh
birthday, Rubeus Hagrid, Gamekeeper of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and
Wizardry, came to Harry and took him off to wizards' school. I recommend
reading the books if you haven't already read them. They're an excellent

B: Cancel commands.
D-Pad: Moves Harry or the cursor.
Select: Not used.
Start: Brings up menu screen.
First off, let's acquaint ourselves with the characters.
Harry Potter: He is the eleven-year-old hero of the wizarding world and
of our adventure. He is the only one you actually get to control.
Ronald Weasley: Ron is Harry's red-haired best friend. He comes from a
poor family. Because of this, he is a little touchy about the fact that
Harry has considerably more money than he does, and doesn't like to
borrow money from people.
Hermione Granger: Though something of a know-it-all, Hermione will prove
to be Harry and Ron's best friend. She might be able to help you out
with some of her knowledge of magic.
Percy Weasley: Percy is Ron's eldest brother at Hogwarts. He is one of
the Prefects and is a great believer in rigidly following rules. Be
careful of him on your nighttime wanderings about Hogwarts.
Fred and George Weasley: These two are Ron's older twin brothers. They
are practical jokers and play the position of Beater on the Gryffindor
house Quiddich team, although Quiddich doesn't even enter into this
Neville Longbottom: Neville is an extremely forgetful boy who has a
rather large number of magic related accidents. He is one of Harry's
Draco Malfoy: Draco is a wealthy Slytherine boy who has an unconcealed
contempt for those who are not in Slytherine, especially for Harry. His
father, Lucius, was one of Lord Voldemort's supporters.
Vincent Crab: Crab is one of Malfoy's buddies. He exists only to do
Gregory Goyle: Goyle is Malfoy's other best..friend? Like Crab he is
Rubeus Hagrid: Generally called Hagrid by his friends, this is the
Gamekeeper at Hogwarts. He's half human and half giant. He has a bit of
an intense liking for what most people would call dangerous monsters.
The more dangerous (or potentially dangerous) the monster, the happier
Professor Minerva McGonagall: Professor McGonagall is head of Gryffindor
house and also teaches Transfiguration. She is fair but very strict and
favors no students, particularly not those in her own house. Try to
avoid crossing her if you can.
Professor Severus Snape: Snape is head of Slytherine house and generally
always favors them. He has an intense hatred for Harry. He teaches
Potions class. Definitely don't cross him.
Professor Flitwic: This tiny little wizard teaches Charms class.
Professor Sprout: Sprout, as her name implies, teaches Herbology. She
will teach you the Insendio spell.
Professor Binns: Binns was very old indeed when he fell asleep in front
of the staff room fire and got up to teach the next morning, leaving his
body behind in an armchair. Yep, he's a ghost. He teaches what is easily
the most boring class, History of Magic.
Professor Quirrel: Quirrel teaches Defense Against theDark Arts..or
tries to. He has a terrible stutter, and his lessons turned out to be a
bit of a joke. He has a secret...
Albus Dumbledor: Dumbledor is the former Transfiguration teacher and
current Headmaster of Hogwarts.
Peeves: Peeves is the castle's resident Poltergeist. He is almost always
very rude and unmanageable. Be careful of him.
Sir Nicholas De Mimsy Porpington:More commonly known as Nearly Headless
Nick, he was the victim of a botched execution in 1492. His head wasn't
completely severed, hence the nickname Nearly Headless Nick. He is the
resident ghost of Gryffindor Tower, and is always happy to point new
Gryffindors in the right direction.
Argus Filch: Named for the many-eyed monster of Greek Mythology, Argus
Filch is the bad tempered caretaker of Hogwarts. Be careful of him.
Madam Hooch: This is the Quiddich teacher. She'll teach you to ride a
Madam Pince: Madam Pince is the school librarian. She is sometimes
described as looking like an irritable, underfed vulture.
Lord Voldemort: Voldemort lost his physical body the night he tried to
kill Harry, but he still exists in spirit form and would like nothing
more than to take revenge on Harry.
His true name is Tom Marvolo Riddle.
Harry's Level: 1
v The game starts off in Diagon Alley. Players who have read the book
will remember this part. Hagrid will enter Olivander's Wand shop, so
follow him. Talk to Mr. Olivander. You'll see a cutscene as Harry tries
out various wands with no results. Finally, on the third wand, Harry
finds the one for him. You'll receive your wand. It's eleven inches
long, made of holly and contains one feather from the tale of a phoenix.
Incidentally, Lord Voldemort's wand contains a feather from the same
Phoenix who supplied the core of your own wand. What happens when
brother wands meet in battle?.. You will already know two spells,
Flipendo Uno and Vermilious Uno.
When you leave Olivander's, a man will stop you and ask you if you
need any Wizard Cards. Say yes. He'll then explain that if you have
cards you can learn card combinations which might be able to create new
magics. He'll give you a Folio Magi for storing your cards, and a Folio
Triplicus for storing combinations. He'll give you four cards and two
card combinations. When that's done you've got two choices. You can
either advance the story now by going to meet Hagrid in the Gringotz
lobby, or you can go exploring. I recommend the latter, as exploring
will allow you to gain experience and money. Enter the alley between
Gringotz and Olivander's (Gringotz is the white marble building), and
you'll find some enemies. They're rats, so they're not hard to take out.
You can take them out the easiest way with one Vermilious Uno spell, but
as it only takes two Flipendo Uno spells to kill them, either way you've
got an easy fight. You can enter the alley and leave as many times as
you want. Note: Try to use both spells a lot. If you use a spell often
enough it'll gain a level. Try to get both your spells up to Duo before
entering Gringotz, and don't worry if you run out of HP. The game will
resume in the medical shop where you can heal for free. When you're
ready, head into Gringotz. Hagrid will be there, so follow him to your
The Gringotz dungeon is fairly easy. Just go up at every junction and
eventually you'll reach your vault. Before you can enter it however, you
must fight a boss.
Boss: Giant Rat
Just use Flipendo Duo or Vermilious Duo on the big guy. The small rats
are just there to get in your way.
Once you win you'll get a Hardened Boot, so equip that. Then enter
your vault. Hagrid will only let you take out 800 sickles at a time
(what happened to the Knut and the Galleon?) but if you went and
explored like I suggested money should be the least of your worries, and
I would think 800 sickles would be more than enough for now.
First off, let's use this money for school. I suggest you buy the
following: three sets of robes, school books, name tags, a hat and
cloak, a pair of gloves, a leather belt, a couple cauldrons and potion
ingredients. Don't try to buy a broomstick, you won't be allowed to. The
same goes for an owl. If you've got money left over buy some sweets and
some potions. They might come in handy. Once that's done, speak to
Hagrid outside Gringotz to leave for the Hogwarts express. First, Hagrid
will give you your birthday present, Hedwig the owl.
I need to stop the guide here, as I haven't gotten further than this
point yet. I know, I know! But I've been really busy lately. But rest
assured that I plan to update sometime, even if it's not very soon.
