Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

How do you get the dittany from Hagrid’s hut?

Games Guru: There is no dittany in the hut. It’s in Hagrid’s garden. After you’ve gotten the bag of beans and knocked down the block, whack the pod right, up, left, up, left and then up. Head up and then left to the moving block, and please do it carefully: if you fall, you have to start all over again. Move over the platforms and gingerly pick up the dittany (and the beans, too).

I need to know how to make the queen and pawn fight on the third board of chess. Can you help me?

Games Guru: There appear to be a few possible solutions for this rather aggressive iteration of chess. Start on a white square, then move up and to the left twice. After that, you can either move left, then right, then down; or take a third up-and-left followed by down and to the right and then one more down. Either one of these solutions should work.

How can you defeat Voldemort?

Games Guru: The trick is to use the mirror of Erised. Have Harry stand between the mirror and Voldemort. When Voldemort fires, have the mirror and Harry absorb the shot, then fire it back at He Who Must Not Be Named. You will eventually defeat the fiend with his own magic.

It seems impossible to kill Lord Voldemort, except for shooting the pillars and doing it at an angle so they’ll land on him. But what I don’t understand is when I shoot the mirror, it starts turning. What is that supposed to mean?

Games Guru: The trick to beating Lord Voldemort (better known as “He Who Must Not Be Named”) is to use the mirror. Voldemort will attempt to kill Harry with two different spells. You will be able to differentiate which spell he is using by the color of his hands. If you see white sparks flying from his hands, run and keep running until he has cast his spell. If you see his hands flashing red, go stand directly in front of the mirror. The mirror will shine a light shield around Harry that will allow him to absorb the spell without getting hurt. Once Harry has absorbed the spell and turned green, you can shoot the spell back at Lord Voldemort by pressing your X button.

    Hey,MTGap,that would be cool!Except,it wouldn’t be called Harry Potter something,it

    would be called Hogwarts.It should be online,because then you could chat with other

    wizards,and even characters!And,you don’t get randomly chosen,you choose!Or, you

    can use Com Version and say your thoughts into it!

    Oh,wait,this is about the topic of HPatSS. See ya!

  5. Neo, no u do not have to past Snapes test. And Games Guru! I submitted a question involing PS one for this game so where’s my answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. how do you get through gringots bank???? you have to get all 5 gems but i can only find 4.

  7. I didn’t know that one spell you could deflect and one you couldn’t! I’ll have to try and beat the game now because I’ve been stuck at the end forever. I think they should make a Harry Potter Game where your actually just a student and not Harry Potter and you just attend and explore Hogwarts. It be even cool if they had an online multiplayer Hogwarts game where people can come have fun in the game!

  8. if u are reading this, i had the com version and you just shoot them and keep them back.

  9. My mom wont let me write down the form, so can you please answer my question?

  10. How do you get past the Devils Snare?And do you have to pass Snapes test?
