Retro Game Walkthroughs for Harry Potter (Gameboy)
Submitted By: Unknown
Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone For GAMEBOY COLOUR
DISCLAMER This is not an in depth walkthrough, but a guide on how
to finish the game. I have only completed it twice, but on all of
the message boards everyone is desperate for a walkthrough so I
thought I would give on a go. Please do not redistribute this
guide without my permission, but feel free to link to it on your
webpage. If you have any questions, comments or corrections
(including spelling), please email me on
[email protected] Anyone sending abuse, spam or junk
mail will be blocked. I shall try to answer your questions, but
if I get too many at once I shall find it difficult - be patient!

Please only read if you are stuck - not to see what happens - as
it contains spoilers. I have tried to leave out as many as I can,
but there are still some. If you have not already read the book,
do so as it is not only brilliant, but also it will help you with
the game to a certain extent. Thankyou. The Walkthrough. The Game
Starts in DIAGON ALLEY Quest - Buy your wand at Ollivander's You
can go exploring now, but I would not recommend it as you don't
have any money yet. Simply move straight up and into the shop
that Hagrid just entered. (Directly above you). After testing a
few the right one is found and given to you. It comes equipped
with the spells Flippendo Uno and Vermilious Uno. Exit the shop.

A man will now give you a Folio Magi a Folio Triplicus, four
Famous Witches and Wizards Cards and two Card Combinations. Quest
- Find Hagrid in Gringotts' lobby. Gringotts' is the large white
building with two pillars beside the door on the right hand side
of the wand shop. You can immediately enter, but first I would
take the time to gain some experience points and extra cash. Go
into the alleyway between the wand shop and Gringotts' and you
will see some shiny blue blobs. These are enemies. To battle,
walk into one. The enemies here are rats, each one will take two

Flippendo Uno spells to kill (one if you get a critical hit, or
more if you miss) or one Vermilious Uno spell (or more if you
miss). I would recommend staying here until you have levelled up
Vermilious Uno to Vermilious Duo, and Flippendo Uno to Flippendo
Duo. You will be very grateful for the more powerful spells, the
money and experience you receive later on. Each rat will give you
2 EXP (experience points) and a few sickles (money). You may also
find items like pumpkin pasties, and pepper-up potion. Again
these are very useful later Do not worry about being killed. As
far as I have worked out there is no way you can die. If your HP
(health points) get to zero, the game will resume in the medical
shop which is below and to the left of the wand shop (talk to the
lady behind the counter to get healed for free. If you run out of
MP (magic points) and haven't levelled it up yet, simply use

Flippendo Uno until you HP reaches zero. This will save time.
*NOTE - You level spells up by using them a certain number of
times. (If anyone knows this number please email me - you will be
given credit for it!) Now you are levelled up enter Gringotts'.
Walk up to the top and talk to Hagrid. You will then enter the
dungeon beneath Gringotts' Quest - Find Hagrid in the Vault. At
this point, you can go exploring and find many useful items and
cards by searching the pictures and holes on the walls. The
fastest way to your vault is taking every "Up" route at the
junctions and following the path round. (Just keep going up at
every opportunity) You will know when you are near your vault, as
there will be a huge shiny blue blob blocking the pathway. This
is a boss enemy Now aren't you glad you spent that time levelling
up! Concentrate your most powerful spell - Vermilious Duo (or
uno) if you didn't level it up - on the big purple rat in the
middle. The small rats are just normal enemies. If you did level
up, then you shouldn't have a problem here. If you keep dying,
spent a little longer fighting the easy enemies. Once you have
beaten the boss, follow the pathway round and you will meet
Hagrid and the bank manager who are waiting outside your vault.

Hagrid will tell you off for dawdling and then you will enter.
Hagrid will only let you take out 850 sickles and gives you a
list of things you need to buy for school. (seeing all that money
there makes you wonder why you can't take more out and buy
anything you want, but that would make the game too easy!) With
all the money you have won from battles you should have over 1000
sickles now. Exit the dungeons the same way you came in (go down
at every opportunity). Exit Gringotts'. Quest - Buy school
supplies in Diagon Alley Explore all the shops - there are two
paths, an upper and a lower. You won't be allowed to buy a
broomstick or an owl, but you can look around the shops. On the
upper path is the wand shop, the broomstick shop, the owl shop,
the potions shop, and the cauldron shop. In the Potions shop, buy
the Potion Kit Bag (10 Sc - sickles). Don't buy any potions yet
as you may run out of money. In the cauldron shop buy one of each
cauldron, Collapsible Cauldron (51 Sc) and the Copper Cauldron
(101 Sc). If you are planning to make potions later, you will
need both. Now go to the lower path. Here is the medical shop,
the sweet shop, the robe shop and the book shop. From the robe
shop buy three Plain work robes (240 Sc total), one Winter Cloak
(150 Sc), on pair of Dragon Skin Gloves (62 Sc), one Pointed Hat
(58 Sc), and one pack of Name tags (10 Sc). There is no point
buying the boots, as you have the hardened boot you won from the
boss battle. I would also recommend buying the Leather Belt (3
Sc) as it gives that little bit of extra protection in battles.

Now go to "Status/Equip" in the menu and equip these items you
have bought. In the bookstore, buy your School Books (143 Sc).
Now you may spend the rest of your money on some useful potions
of sweets. When you are ready speak to Hagrid (outside
Gringotts') to leave for the Hogwarts Express! Hagrid will the
give you your birthday present of Hedwig the Owl. Quests - Get on
the Hogwarts Express, Find a seat on the Hogwarts Express Follow
the platform round to the train. Go to the far right and you will
see a family of ginger haired people. Speak to one of the boys
with the black jumpers and after a short conversation you can get
on the train (follow the boys). Now walk to the far left of the
train and speak to the ginger haired boy who will introduce
himself as Ron Wealsey. Hermione Granger will then ask you if you
have seen a toad, and teach you a new spell - Verdimillous Uno.

The sweet trolley will then arrive. Buy something of talk to her
and the exit and return to your seat. Draco Malfoy will arrive
and try to steal your sweets (regardless of if you bought any or
not). You will then have to battle him. Once you have beaten him
he will give you a card combination. Now talk to people until the
conductor announces that everyone needs to change into their
robes.

Quest - Cross the Lake at Hogwarts landing, Get through
the Hogwarts Dungeons. Follow the others down (talking to Hagrid
first if you want to get healed) and get into a boat. During the
crossing. Never run into the shore as you will have to start it
all again. It is also best to avoid as many of the monsters as
possible because if your HP reaches zero you will also have to
start again. Battle your way up the lake and land on the shore at
the top end. The dungeons are a good place to start levelling up
your new spell - Verdimillous Uno. The monsters are tougher so
you will gain levels quite quickly too. There are plenty of items
and cards to be found in the dungeons, but I will leave you to
find them as you work your way through. On the last floor, there
is a boss who is quite difficult to kill if you have not spent
the time to level up previously. The best spell to use on him is
Flippendo - Whichever is your highest level. Follow Hagrid up the
stairs and into Hogwarts. Quest - Get sorted into a house Follow
the other students into the great hall. You will be sorted into
Gryffindor.

Go to the table in the bottom right and talk to anyone sitting on it. Hermione will then call you over to sit next to her. The feast will then start and be over in about a second , then its off to find the Gryffindor common room. Quest - Find Gryffindor Exit the great hall by the door on the left hand side into the entrance hall. Go up the stairs and onto the first floor. You will then meet Peeves. Now you can search around for all the items and cards hidden away in Hogwarts. Again, I shall not tell you where they are, but will tell you the fastest way to Gryffindor. Go down to the bottom of the screen and go up one of
the staircases. On this floor are two statues of Griffins. Search
the tail of the topmost one to find a passageway up to the 5th
floor. If you go left from the exit of the passageway, there is a
set of stairs. Next to them is a corridor which leads to the
"Card Collectors Club" Go into this room and speak to the boy on
the left of the screen to receive new card combinations. There
should be one waiting for you. After each quest there is a new
combination available, but there is not much point going down
every time, so pop in every now and then and pick up several at
once. Half of the combinations will be unusable as you don't have
the cards yet anyway! Exit and go up the stairs. Go up the stairs
that are then in front of you on the 6th floor to take you to the
7th.

The "Fat Lady" picture is the entrance to the common room.
She is in the corridor about halfway up on the left of the
screen. Talk to her and she will tell you, you need the password
to enter. Go back down the stair and talk to Nearly Headless Nick
who tells you he would like an old school tie in exchange for
telling you the password (He is the ghost on the left hand side
of the 6th floor - about half way up). Go down another floor and
enter the secret passageway you came up No go down another floor
using the stairs at the bottom of the screen. Got down the stairs
at the top of the screen in to the entrance hall. Now search the
upper of the two gargoyles on the bottom left hand corner of the
screen. This should give you the tie. Go back up the way you came
down (secret passage by searching the tail of the top griffin)
and return to the 6th floor. Talk to Nick who will now tell you
the password. Go up to the 7th floor and speak to the Fat Lady
and enter the common room. If in doubt about where to go, press
select to fins out which floor you are on, the go up or down
stairs to get to the floor you want. I only suggest using the
passages, as they are faster. Go up the stairs at the bottom of
the screen to get into your bedroom. Search the bed at the top of
the screen to sleep when you are finished searching around. Quest

- Get to potions class, Find the ingredients for Snape. Exit the
dorm using the stairs at the bottom of the screen, and exit the
Gryffindor common room at the right hand side. Go down the stairs
onto the 6th floor, and then down again onto the 5th floor. Go
through the doorway at the bottom of the screen to find a
passageway to the dungeon. Go down and left until you reach the
end of the passageway with three doors (one left, one right and
one down) go through the left one. Go to the top-left of the room
and speak to Snape, who will tell you to take a seat. You will
lose one house point for not being able to answer a question, and
then Neville will burn himself on the potion he is brewing. Snape
will send you to look for the ingredients for a potion to cure
him - 1 x Boomslang Skin, 1 x Snake Fangs, and 2 x Beetles Eyes.
Exit the room the way you came in.

Go through the door that is immediately to your right as you exit the classroom. This is Snapes office. Search the picture of a snake at this point to find the Boomslang skin. Now exit the office the go through the bottom doorway. This will take you into the entrance hall. Exit through the main doors at the bottom of the screen. Take the left fork of the path, and then the right fork to get to Hagrid's hut. Enter through the gate in the fence. The Beetles eyes are in the bush at the top left of the screen, and in the bush to the left of his front door. To find the snake fangs go back up the path and take the left fork in the path.

Professor Sprout is standing outside a greenhouse. Talk to her and she will tell you that the snakes still have the fangs you need - battle them. After killing some snakes and finding some fangs, talk to professor Sprout again and she will award you some house points for pest control. You should now have all the ingrdients. Return to the dungeon (door on the left of the stairs in the entrance hall and then left to get into the potions class) and talk to Snape again. No matter how fast I have done this, he has always deducted points for being too slow. He will give you a class list. Quest - Find you next class. You now have the option of which class to go to. It does not matter which order you do them in (I wish it was the same in real life!), so I shall just tell you their locations and what to do. Transfiguration. Location: - 1st floor, door on the top left. A candle has been transfigured into a purple rabbit. You need to find it. Go down to the entrance hall and talk to Percy (ginger hair - standing at the bottom of the stairs) who will tell you a purple rabbit has just hopped out of the door. Go outside and then left and up. The rabbit should be here. Click on it to catch it, and return to the transfiguration classroom. You will be taught a new spell, and given 25 house points as a reward for finding it - Incendio Uno. Herbology This is the most time consuming class to finish. Location: - Greenhouses outside (where you talked to professor Sprout about the snakes) Enter the far left greenhouse, and talk to Ron (far left table, at the top). You will be issued with an Ingredient Encyclopedia, and given a Herb List.

You need to find all the herbs on the list. Asphodel
Root - Directly down from the greenhouse is a funny shaped bush.
Search it. Search bushes like this (there are also other types of
"funny" bush) Dried Nettles - Right hand pot plant beside the
door. (inside) Dittany - Follow the dirt track down from the main
entrance and look in the funny bush to the right (not the very
first one, as this is another source of dried nettles) Wormwood -
Follow the brown dirt track down to the main gate and look in the
funny bush on the grass to the left Mandrake Root - Go down to
the very bottom right and behind the trees beside the fence
Arconine - There is a funny bush in the bottom right of the
Hogwarts grounds. (Sorry about the very vague locations, but it
is very difficult to explain where something is very accurately
on such a large scale - If anyone has a map, it would be a lot
easier to show o email me!) Return to the greenhouse after
finding all six of these herbs, and Professor sprout will reward
you by sending you to Snape to collect two potion recipes. Snape
is in his Office (where you found the Boomslang Skin). Collect
these to finish the class. Charms Location: - Second floor.
Doorway at the top of the screen in the middle. Enter and go to
the top of the room and talk to Professor Flitwick. My only
advice for this one is have a pen and paper handy to note down
the wand movements professor Flitwick uses, as it changes every
time you take this class. Upon completing this class, you will be
awarded 15 house points, and given a new spell - Wingardium
Leviosa . Defence Against the Dark Art. Location: - Third Floor.
Doorway at the top of the screen, on the left side. Just before
entering, Peeves will curse you. Enter the room and talk to
Quirrell who will tell you, you need to find the counter curse.
First of all go into the library and talk to Madam Pince (Enter
through the door opposite the defence against the dark arts
classroom and go down the stairs. Go to the bottom of the screen
at the middle. She should be sitting at a desk here). She tells
you the counter curse book has been missing for some time. Exit
the library. Peeves will appear and tell you the book you want
might be being studied by a muggle - Muggle studies classroom.

This is on the 5th floor, in the top left hand room. Enter and
Peeves will tell you to try watching TV. Search the TV to enter a
hidden chamber. Fight the boss in here to receive the counter
curse book. The best spell to use against this boss is the
strongest Flippendo you have - by now it should be Flippendo Duo.
Go into your inventory and use the book to remove the curse.
Return to the library and return the book to Madam Pince who
gives you 25 house points. Now return to the defence against the
dark arts classroom and talk to Quirrell who will give you 10
house points. History Of Magic Location: - 4th floor, door on the
left hand side at the top of the screen. Enter the room and talk
to Neville to wake professor Binns up. Binns will give you a pass
to go back to Diagon Alley to find to person selling the Circe
card. Exit the classroom and Hagrid will be there and will take
you to Diagon Alley. You start outside the wand shop. There are
different items on sale in most of the shops now, so it may be a
good time to stock up on potions and buy new items (if you wish).
If you go towards Gringotts', the man selling the card will be to
the right of Hagrid. Take to him and pay 10 Sickles for the card.
The only catch is you have to go to his vault in Gringotts' to
fetch it. Follow him into Gringotts' and speak to him again. The
manager will show you to his vault. Kill the boss in there to
receive the card. The best spell to use on the giant rat is
Incendio.

Return to the lobby and exit the bank. Talk to the man
again, and Hagrid will take you back to Hogwarts. Talk to
professor Binns to end the lesson. Broom Flight Class. Location:
- Outside. Exit through the main doors and take the right hand
path, then the right hand fork, and the right hand fork once
again. Neville will break his wrist and drop the Remembrall.
Draco will steal it an take to the air. You need to catch him. My
advice here is keep "right" held down to keep your speed up, and
try to avoid as many obstacles as possible. As soon as you can,
fly into Draco. You can return to this area later to race against
an owl. Winning will earn you some house points. All of your
lessons are over, you return to the great hall for dinner where
Draco challenges you to a Wizards Duel.

Quest - Go to the trophy
room for the midnight duel. Using the stairs (as the secret
passages are locked) go down to the 3rd floor - carefully
avoiding all of the members of staff. The trophy room is at the
bottom of the screen in the middle. Walk to the left end of the
room, until Filch and "Mrs Noris" appear. Exit through the door
beside you. Exit this room through the door on the right to bring
you out into the main hallway. Where you will all hide in a
previously locked room and meet "Fluffy" (those of you who have
read the book or completed more of the game will understand
this). Now return to Gryffindor again using only the stairs and
avoiding the members of staff who seem to never sleep. Quest -
Rescue Hermione from the troll. Upon hearing you insult her,
Hermione runs off to the girls toilets crying. Professor
McGonagall asks you to find her.

Talk to the girl on the left hand side of the entrance hall who tells you where she is. Quirrell will the arrive and announce that there is a troll in the school. Go up to the first floor and enter the door the troll goes through. The best spell to use here is Verdimillous which should be at least Duo by now. Another good one to use is Mucus Ad Nausium which you learned from Peeves when he cursed you. The only downside to this one is you need 80 MP to use it, but it takes 20 HP off of any enemy cursed with it each round. Having beaten the troll exit and go down to and enter Hagrid's hut.

Quest - Find your Christmas Presents. It Christmas! So what does
Peeves do? Steals your presents! Luckily they are not far away.
Go to the 6th floor and enter the door above the stairs you just
descended. Walk along this corridor and into the room at the end.
Search the top chest on the right hand side of the room to find
your presents. Filch catches you and drags you off the Professor
McGonagall who, since its Christmas only deducts one house point.
Return to Gryffindor. And your dorm to open you presents. Quest -
Explore Hogwarts at night. Go down to the 3rd floor and enter the
library. (Door above the stairs on the right hand side) Go down
the spiral staircase and enter the restricted section. There are
two spells and a potion recipe here. This is my very poor attempt
at drawing the reference section! R = Potion Recipe
_________________________ | | __________________ | | | | | |
|Spell Alarm| | | | Alarm | |_______________________| | | |

| | | | | | | | | | | |Alarm Recipe | | | |spell| | |
|_______________________| |____| |_____| |____| (I think you can
get the general idea of the positions from this!) Collect the
spells and recipe, then set off an alarm. Exit through the right
hand side stair case - thus avoiding Filch and Madam Pince. Exit
through the door on the left hand side on the 3rd floor. If you
try to go down a flight of stairs here, Snape catches you so all
you can do is go up. Avoid the various members of staff and make
your way to the 5th floor. Go into the corridor on the right hand
side of the floor. Continue through and enter the room at the
end. After a cut scene return to Gryffindor and bed. Quest - Go
to Hagrid's Hut, Catch 5 chickens. Go to Hagrid's Hut and enter.
After a cut scene exit and catch 5 chickens. The best way is to
corner them and click on them. It is not as easy as it looks!
Like all chickens everywhere they are very stupid and always run
away from you. To collect a chicken, you have to battle and KO
them. For each battle, you only receive one chicken. This is a
good time to level up your spells and gain EXP. Chickens can
hardy damage you (the most HP one has taken from me was 4!) and
you can keep battling them for as long as you like. Once at least
5 have been caught, return to Hagrid's Hut.

After a cut scene,
you will be back in the library. Now return to Hagrid's Hut
(again!) and catch the escaped Norbert. This is the same as the
Owl chase, and Malfoy chasing on your broom only with different
graphics. Once Norbert is caught time will pass until Saturday.
Quest - Take Norbert to the astronomy tower. Go to Hagrid's hut
and enter. Collect Norbert and take him back up to the 7th floor.
The astronomy tower is through the top door on the left hand side
of the floor. Follow the corridor round and through the doorway
at the end. After a cut scene go back down. There will be another
cut scene now (one which is unavoidable). Quest - Detention, find
the injured unicorn. Go down to the main entrance hall. Now go
down to the path below Hagrid's hut (the left fork), where the
others are waiting. After a cut scene you will be in the forest.
Here there is only one way through, but a lot of dead ends. If
you want a more detailed guide to this area please email me. You
more or less follow the path round, going down most of the time.
After switching parties, you will come across the unicorn, and
after an interesting, yet disturbing cut scene you will need to
return to the main entrance hall. You will then need to return to
Gryffindor. Note the "griffin" secret passageway is unlocked.

Quest - Find Dumbledore

Go back into the main building (if you
have not already done so search the library for potion recipies
and new spells - especially Locomotor Wibbly as this will be very
useful). Now go to the 1st floor and speak to Professor
McGonagall who is standing in between the two sets of stairs at
the bottom of the screen. Now return to Gryffindor, collecting
the card combinations on the way (5th floor, bottom left). This
is it, the final stretch! WARNING. READING PAST THIS POINT WILL
SPOIL A LOT OF THE GAME FOR YOU. IT CONTAINS A LOT OF SPOILERS

Quest - Go to the forbidden corridor

Go down to the 3rd floor (if
you feel you need to, stay around here and level up - don't use
any of your healing items, but instead allow your HP to reach
zero and get healed for free. Make sure Incendio is levelled up
to at the very least Duo as you will need it unless you have a
lot of HP and MP) Now go to the bottom right hand corner. Enter,
and after a short cutscene you will fight the first of the final
bosses - Devil's Snare. Use Incendio on it as this is the only
spell (Except for Mucus Ad Nausium) that does any damage worth
speaking of. Concentrate on the big plant in the middle, and if
you have enough MP use Mucus Ad Nausium on it to help kill it
faster. Go into the next room where thousands of keys are flying
around. On your broom fly up to the top of the screen and go to
the centre and hit the stationary gold key. Go into the next
room. Here you will have to fight giant chess pieces. Here is the
easiest way of defeating EVERY boss from now on. 1) Cast
Locomotor Wibbly on them to paralyse them. 2) Cast Mucus Ad
Nauseam on them to poison them. (Regardless of your level this
will always take 20 HP from them each round) 3) Replenish your MP
if necessary, and if they have started moving again cast
Locomotor Wibbly on them to paralyse them once again. Otherwise
click on "Flee". As it is a boss you can't escape, and they will
lose 20 HP every time you try to escape.

They should only be able
to attack you a maximum of once - at the very beginning of the
fight. Don't worry about healing this lost HP as you will always
level up at the end of one of these battles which replenishes
your HP and MP. Kill the 3 chess pieces and go to the next room.
There is a troll on here, but it is already out cold so carry on
to the next room. Click on the table and try to mix the potion. I
really can't help you here, as it is simply common sense and a
different code each time. Having mixed the potion go into the
final room. Kill the two bosses in here. Now sit back and enjoy
the end of game sequence where a lot of loose ends are tied up.
But did you earn enough house points to get the good ending???
Once the game is finished, you can restart from your saved file,
with all the experience, cards and sickles you have collected so
far. It is much easier the second time around as you don't have
to spend all that time levelling up. I hope you enjoyed the game,
and this walkthrough helped you through the harder parts. As I
said at the start, this is my first attempt at a walkthrough so
if there is anything you still do not understand please email me
and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can. Robin
