Throughout the game, Harry learns spells by engaging in a Simon Says-like exercise in which the player must match the movements of Harry's professor with the D-pad. Miller and IGN 's Craig Harris commended the game's faithfulness to the source material, [1] [2] though Harris and Electronic Gaming Monthly 's Baker and Jeanne Kim were annoyed by the repetitive and abundant nature of the puzzle segments, which Harris compared to Golden Sun and The Legend of Zelda.

K. Rowling and the producers of the film adaptation to ensure that all three versions shared a consistent presentation. For other 2001 games of the same name, see Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001 video game) and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Game Boy Color video game). When a mountain troll infiltrates Hogwarts, Harry and Ron notice Professor Severus Snape behaving suspiciously before they go to rescue Hermione from the troll. As a long-time Potter fan who has read all of the books and watched every movie, I've always been particularly interested in this chapter of the franchise.At the school's end-of-year banquet, Dumbledore announces that Harry's acts of nerve and courage have won Gryffindor enough points to win them the House Cup. Some characters are bugged to the point where they might use certain portraits from other characters instead. Prisoner Sirius Black has escaped the wizard prison Azkaban, and is supposedly ready to attack Harry in Hogwarts.

Harry determines that Fluffy is guarding the Philosopher's Stone and concludes that Snape must be after it. The GBA version of the game is one of the few sprite-based games to have non-ambidextrous sprites for one of its characters; Harry himself has a separate set of left and right sprites to show that he always holds his wand in his right hand, but only for his spell-casting animation. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is an adventure game with puzzle elements in which the player controls Harry Potter, guiding him through a narrative reflecting that of the novel.However, he opined that the game's adherence to the source material's narrative deprived it of energy and a sense of adventure, explaining that the personal nature of the story's conflicts made for little action that could be easily translated into a video game.

As with the Playstation version of the game, the story skips straight to Hogwarts, giving a storyboard version of the first third of the book. With such a rich and interesting story to be made into game form, it's a surprise that more of the book wasn't used in planning the quests. You may be looking for the novel, film, soundtrack, the video game soundtrack or object of the same name.

Overall Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone for the Game Boy Advance is a less than enjoyable experience as its gameplay can be likened to a frustrating and almost broken puzzle platformer. Boasting an entirely new engine, this Game Boy Advance game showcases rendered elements from the console titles. Frank Provo of GameSpot was very positive about the GBA game's recreation of the novel; saying "The main thing to keep in mind is that Prisoner of Azkaban on the GBA offers a fun way for Harry Potter fans to step into the shoes of their favorite wizard-in-training and experience firsthand everything that happened in the third installment of the series.
