Year Three, Level Four: The Shrieking Shack

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

First Time

The level will start with the Whomping Willow trying to attack you. When it puts its branch down to hit you, climb on and shoot one of its leaves. After shooting all three, you can proceed to the next area.

Shoot the flower, then use Lumos on the vines and climb across. Jump down and shoot the flower to the right, then the brown roots above you. Shoot the roots again and then the flower on the left to make the seed grow into a tree. Climb up and go to the right, shoot the flower here, and jump on the first spiderweb and go to the left. Levitate the object here to make one of the vines at the end of the area recede. Jump across the next three spiderwebs, but once you’re on the fourth go down. Shoot the flower and levitate the next part of the vine. Climb back up and go around the two geysers. Shoot the pink balls hanging above you and use them to plug the geysers. The board will shoot upward. Get on and go to the left to get the final vine away. Shoot the flower to the right to get the Hufflepuff Crest piece before entering the next area.

You’re now trying to catch Scabbers. Shoot the area that he runs to to get a piece. After getting all of the pieces, put them together to build a giant mousetrap. Scabbers will come out and turn into Peter Pettigrew.

Use Lumos on the vines at the bottom of where you’re standing and put the pieces together, then shoot the object it makes for some blocks. Stack them up to reach the cliff. Use Crookshanks to dig up the cauldron, and shoot the items on the wall for two ingredients. Plant the seed to the right of the snake to get the final ingredient. Drink the potion and pull the chain, then climb up and use Crookshanks to dig up the spot to make a ladder. Be prepared to fight some spiders when you climb up. Shoot the spiderweb in the back to release the Student In Peril. Put together the pieces on the ground to make a springboard and bounce up and end the level.

Free Play

At the beginning there are two digging spots, one on either side of the Whomping Willow. Dig up the one on the left and have a Dark Wizard use Crucio on the box to get the Gryffindor Crest piece. Do the same for the spot on the right to get the character token for Witch (Grey).

In the area where you’re trying to catch Scabbers, go to the left and have a Dark Wizard use Crucio on the chest for the character token for Peter Pettigrew.

Use Reducto on the chest where you start out in this area to get the character token for Hermione (Red Hooded Top). Have Crookshanks dig up the spot to the left, where you’ll get a glass case. Play through the level up until where you pull the chain and have Crookshanks dig. Use Reducto on the lock behind you for a closet. Put the earmuffs on and go back to the beginning, where you found the Mandrake. Use the Mandrake to break the glass case and get the Ravenclaw Crest piece. Have a Dark Wizard use Crucio on the rock near where you found the Mandrake. There’s another rock not too far to the right, and another to the right of the cauldron. The last two rocks are in the area where you fought the spiders, across from each other. Destroying all five will earn you the Slytherin Crest piece.
