Year One, Level Five: The Forbidden Forest

In this level you’ll need a Regular Wizard, Dark Wizard, and Digging Character.

First Time

Take care of the bees’ nest to the left immediately after the level starts. Use Fang to dig up the spot in the bottom right corner to unlock Fang. Then, go near the other digging spot and shoot the vines around the student to get the Student In Peril. Shoot the flower to the left of the Student In Peril before putting together the cloud on the ground and using Fang to go up the ladder of the tree that appears. After digging that hole, another ladder will appear. Jump down and climb up on that ladder. Shoot the bees’ nest. Jump down from the red mushroom and shoot the second flower, then the third to the right of the spiderweb on the three mushrooms. The Hufflepuff Crest piece will now appear. Jump over the tree roots to the left and use Fang to dig into the ground and let you into the second part of the level.

Get rid of the bees’ nest before you do anything. It’s easier to play through the level when you aren’t getting attacked by bees. Use Lumos to make the vines reside, then shoot at the remaining blockage to continue.

The bees’ nest is in the area above you this time, so don’t worry about destroying it first. Go to the right and down into the water, and use Fang to dig on the center area. The water will drain and leave you with six stranded fish. Put each of them back into the water to earn the Gryffindor Crest piece. Now use Lumos on the vines that cover the large black box, and use Hagrid to pull the chain that is revealed. You can go back up to land now and use Fang to dig up the blue block. Shoot the spiderwebs holding the yellow and green blocks to release them, and build them up to reach the higher part. (This may be a little difficult since this is the first time you’re being asked to stack the blocks without a guide.) Once you’re up, you can destroy the bees’ nest. Go to the right (it doesn’t matter if you go up and around or down and around; they both lead to the same place) and shoot the spiderwebs to knock down the pieces of wood. Put the pieces together to make a tree, climb up, and go into the cave to end the level.

Free Play

As you probably noticed while playing, there were a lot of items with red sparkles around them in this level. To get the Slytherin Crest piece, you must destroy ten rocks with red around them using a Dark Wizard. I’m not going to tell you where they are; they’re fairly easy to find and you should be able to find them all just by going through the level.

After finding Fang’s character token, use Reducto on the locked chest as you enter the area. The character token for Hagrid will be revealed. Now, go down to the water area and drain the pond. Use Reducto on the brown chest to get the Ravenclaw Crest piece.

The final character token can be found as you enter the final area of the level. Use a Dark Wizard to destroy the glowing black sphere to get the character token for Draco (Hogwarts).
