Summary

Leave the nonmagical world behind and enroll in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry™ in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone™ for Game Boy Advance, Nintendo's highly anticipated new 32-bit hand-held console. Be Harry Potter™, learning to master all things magical in a world filled with wizardry, fun, and danger. Overcome adversity and challenges and encounter unforgettable characters from J.K. Rowling's worldwide bestseller.

As Harry Potter™, players will hone their magical skills and advance through Harry's first year at Hogwarts™. Players will be challenged to meet a number of objectives, such as collecting and mixing potions with Professor Snape™ or piloting a flying broom through the Forbidden Forest in search of Neville Longbottom's™ Remembrall™. In order to pass the first year of study, players must complete over twenty different objectives, while avoiding enemies and obstacles.

The Game Boy Advance version will take advantage of the enhanced portable console to provide action-driven puzzles that promise to capture the daring and adventurous spirit of Harry Potter™. Players will experience Harry Potter's world through an isometric 2D perspective with fantastic 3D rendered sprites, including top-down Quidditch™ and broomstick flying sequences that deliver the speed and excitement of competition. Scenarios such as learning to cast spells, searching for spell ingredients in Hagrids Garden and sneaking past the school Prefects at night will add challenges and while remaining true to the book's story line.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone™ features more than twenty characters from the novel, including Harry's friends Hermione Granger™ and Ron Weasley™ and Hogwarts™ professors, Dumbledore and Snape. Just as Harry did, players will experience the adventure that is life at Hogwarts™ along with the challenge of finding the Philosopher's Stone™.

I never made it past the chess part... because I didn't know how to play chess.
