Return To Hogwarts
“Return To Hogwarts” is a feature that is unlocked after completing all of the gameplay levels. This gives you a chance to go back through the school grounds and get anything you missed (Gold Bricks, character tokens, etc.). Or, if you just played the levels and didn’t mess around with the other activities around Hogwarts, you can do so now.
The four different types of unlockables that you will find around Hogwarts are character tokens, Gold Bricks, Red Bricks, and Students In Peril. You have encountered three of these through playing the levels, but Red Bricks may be new. If you ever come across a white owl sitting on top of a red stand while exploring Hogwarts, it means a Red Brick can be found in that area. Once you find a Red Brick, carry it to the owl to unlock it. Red Bricks can be purchased in the upstairs room of Eeylops Owl Emporium after being discovered. When you start the game, four Red Bricks are already unlocked: Silhouettes, Ice Rink, Disguise, and Carrot Wands. After purchasing a Red Brick, you can activate it by going to “Extras” in the pause menu.
Gold Bricks are a little bit different as well. In the entire game, there are 200 Gold Bricks to be collected. You’ll earn one for each completed level, completed House Crest, Student In Peril rescued, level completed with True Wizard, lessons completed in Hogwarts, and Gringotts bonus level completed. This totals to 121 Gold Bricks. Twelve more can be purchased in Eeylops Owl Emporium in Diagon Alley, four in the downstairs of the Leaky Cauldron after completing the levels with all unlockables, and two in Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley. The other 61 Gold Bricks are found within various areas of Hogwarts as you explore on your own.
There are a total of 26 Students In Peril, 35 Gold Bricks (for each Student In Peril found, you get one Gold Brick as well), 20 Red Bricks, and 95 character tokens. Finding and purchasing all of these, along with purchasing all of the extra spells in Diagon Alley, will help you get to 100% completion. The locations are in alphabetical order, so you can either look through each location or look through the bolded words to find a specific character or item.
