***Professors who belonged to a specific house can also gain access to their common rooms/dorms***
****Both Filch and Professor Dumbledore have access to any of these dorms****

What Abilities Do They Have?

Animagi have the ability to turn into an animal at will. In your spells’ area, this ability should be green and should be in between Expelliarmus and Wingardium Leviosa. Some Animagi are also Digging Characters, while some can crawl through tunnels, and some can do both.

Book Characters have the ability to open bookcases throughout the game. There is really no way in the game to tell if a character has this ability without testing it out.

Dark Wizards have access to two spells that Regular Wizards cannot use: Crucio and Avada Kedavra. Crucio comes up where Wingardium Leviosa is in a Regular Wizard’s spells, and can be used to destroy items with red sparkles around them instead of the regular pinkish color. Dark Wizards can also use Wingardium Leviosa on objects, though. The other spell, Avada Kedavra, can be used to instantly kill a character that isn’t a Boss (ex. you can’t kill Professor Quirrell in Face Of The Enemy with Avada Kedavra, nor can you kill Aragog in Follow The Spiders with this spell, etc.).

Digging Characters can be used to dig holes where it is marked on the ground by some paw prints.

Flying Characters can fly well on a broomstick; other characters without this ability are out of control on a broomstick, but can still make it short distances.

Ghosts have no magic abilities, but can be used to scare students. Moaning Myrtle (Swimsuit) is an exception to this, since she can levitate objects but has no access to other spells.

Girl Characters have access to the girls’ bathroom in the level Out Of The Dungeon.

Goblins have the ability to open vaults. There is only one Goblin in this game: Griphook.

Gryffindor Students have access to the Gryffindor common room.

Hufflepuff Students have access to the Hufflepuff common room.

Invisibility Cloak Characters have access to the Invisibility Cloak, which can completely conceal you from anyone. There is only one Invisibility Cloak Character: Harry Potter.

Muggles have no magical abilities. Filch can hit people with his lantern; other Muggles just roll into other characters to attack. Dobby isn’t actually a Muggle, but he has all abilities of a Muggle in the game.

Parselmouths have the ability to speak Parseltongue to snakes.

Regular Wizards are any characters with magic abilities that are not Dark Wizards. Most characters in the game are Regular Wizards.

Slytherin Students have access to the Slytherin common room.

Strong Characters have the ability to pull chains without having to drink a Strength Potion.

Time Turner Characters can use the Time Turner when finding a grandfather clock in Hogwarts. Going back in time usually changes the atmosphere; for example, if there is a character token in the room when you use the Time Turner, it may be replaced by another object or just be missing altogether once you’re back in time.

Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley

There are even some surprises hidden inside of Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley, outside of the game itself. Knockturn Alley is unlocked after learning the spell Reducto, or after learning the Polyjuice Potion and unlocking a Regular Wizard character (after learning the Polyjuice Potion, there will be a cauldron outside of Madam Malkin’s that you can use to transform into any character you’ve bought). It can be found through a gate across from Eeylops Owl Emporium in Diagon Alley.

Madam Malkin’s Robes

When you first walk into Madam Malkin’s, there will be some clothes on the ground. Put them back on their hangers to get the character token for Hermione (Ballgown). Go up the stairs to the dressing rooms and open the one on the right to get Harry (Tuxedo). Opening the one on the left will let you into a secret room where you can create your own custom characters to use in Free Play.

Eeylops Owl Emporium

Shoot the cage to the right of the stairs and put the pieces together to make a sweeper. Ride it and clean up all of the owl food to get a Gold Brick.

Knockturn Alley

Put the planks together to make a walkway. Go onto the walkway to get the character token for Igor Karkaroff. Jump in the wagon where the planks were and shoot the wagon to propel yourself upward to get The Bloody Baron. Go down the stairs and destroy the chest on the table. After the table moves, jump onto it and you’ll be flung upwards to the token for Shifty Wizard.

Borgin & Burkes

Behind the conter is a Gold Brick.

After gaining all of the Gold Bricks throughout the game, you should still be missing one. Go to Borgin & Burkes and put together the bricks on the ground to make a doorway. Play through the bonus level and just try to get as many coins as you can, which will unlock Voldemort upon completion.

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.

Gringotts: Bonus Levels Six Through Ten & Builder Levels

Continued from my previous post, Gringotts: Bonus Levels One Through Five.

Level Six

Level six begins with the option as using Ron or Filch. Start by spinning the wheel to the left and jumping across. Have Ron use Lumos to get rid of the vines, then use the fireplace to reach the other side and spin the wheel to get Filch across. Use Scabbers to crawl through the tunnel and stand on the button to open the door. Climb up and spin the wheel to open the gate. Grab the potion ingredient to your left and add it to the cauldron. The second ingredient is to the far left, near the tunnel entrance. Spin the wheel by the cauldron to fill the ground with water, and go back to where you started the level. Go to the right and swim across to the fireplace. Get rid of the plants and swim across to the final ingredient. Swim back, get rid of the plants, and switch to Filch to open the gate. Switch back to Ron and go back to the potion, and switch to a Slytherin character. Go back to the beginning and wave at the gate to open it and reach the Gold Brick.

Level Seven

In this level, you can switch between Harry and Ron. Start with Harry, destroy the two Devil’s Snare plants, then go left and get rid of the Dementor and two more Devil’s Snare plants. Grab the potion ingredient, then get rid of the vines and turn the knob. Switch to Ron and use Scabbers to climb through the tunnel. Harry will use Floo Powder to get on the other side of the gate. Switch to Harry and get rid of the Dementors, then add the ingredient to the cauldron. There is another ingredient behind the tree in the left corner, and the final one on the right. Drink the potion and pull the chain to make the platform on Ron’s side move. Use Ron to put on earplugs, shatter the glass, and pot the Mandrake. Spin the wheel to unlock the gate. Have both characters go back to where you started the level and each step on a button. Spin the wheel inside of the gate, then jump into the water to get the Gold Brick.

Level Eight

The level starts with Ron and Harry. Destroy the two Devil’s Snare plants, and destroy the Dementor. Destroy the final Devil’s Snare plant and add the first two ingredients to the cauldron. Use Floo Powder to get the last ingredient, and have Harry drink the potion and switch to a Dark Wizard. Destroy the sphere blocking the entrance to the tunnel with Crucio, then have Ron use Scabbers to climb through the tunnel and open the gate. Build the blocks up to get across, then place the platforms on their blocks and jump down to the next area. Have each character stand on a button to open the gate. Get rid of the two Dementors, use Lumos on the vines, and spin the wheel to make platforms appear. Jump across and cross the mushrooms to have each character stand on a button. The gate will open, allowing you to get the Gold Brick and end the level.

Level Nine

Have each character stand on a button to unlock the gate. Build the buttons and step on them again to open both gates. Use the Floo Powder in the gate to the left and spin the wheel to drain the pool and grab the first ingredient. Add it to the cauldron, then have Ron use Scabbers to climb through the tunnel and open the door. Spin the wheel to lower the platform and grab the next ingredient. Go into the right room, put on earplugs, and build the “E” as shown in the picture to open the gate. Carry the Mandrake down and shatter the glass, then pot it and grab the final ingredient. Drink the potion and cross the lines to get the Gold Brick.

Level Ten

Grab the first ingredient. Go right and build up the blocks, then kill the spider and put the platform on the brick to get the second ingredient. Go to the left, jump across, put on earplugs, and use the Mandrake to smash the glass. Pot it, grab the final ingredient, drink the potion, and pull the chain to unlock the gate. Use Lumos on the vines, then have Harry mount the broom and ride it through the four rings to open the door. Grab the first ingredient, then have the other character jump onto the bench and grab the second ingredient. Build up the stairs, add the two ingredients to the cauldron, and destroy the tree to the left to get the final ingredient. Use the potion to switch to a Digging Character and dig up two buttons. Have both characters stand on them to open the door. Use the potion to switch your characters so that one is a Hufflepuff and one is a Ravenclaw. Use the Ravenclaw character to open the door and collect the ingredient while avoiding Filch. Add the ingredient to the cauldron and switch to the Hufflepuff character and do the same. Switch one character to a Slytherin student, doing the same as you did for the other two characters to complete the potion. Drink the potion and collect the Gold Brick.

Become A Lego Builder! Parts One To Four

In these levels, you can press the jump button repeatedly to go higher. Remove the five balloons, then plant multiple trees. Play the level. You won’t have enough studs, so you’ll have to go back and put more objects or coins in the level until you have enough to reach 2000 studs. The easiest way to do this is to place two blue coins in the level, then go back and play the level to finish part one.

In the second building level, all you have to do is raise or lower the land to put the fish in the water and the cats on dry land.

Set down one vehicle in each of the four areas. Play the level, driving over the pad inside of each area.

Put the correct road into each of the empty spots, then use the car to drive to the pad at the end of the road.

Gringotts: Bonus Levels One Through Five

If you haven’t noticed by now, Gringotts Wizarding Bank is accessible at the end of Diagon Alley, just like in level one of gameplay. In Diagon Alley, though, Gringotts holds ten bonus levels that you must play in order to get all 200 Gold Bricks (or complete the game to 100%). These levels are fairly easy and shouldn’t take long to complete, especially if you have already played through all of the main levels.

Level One

The main goal in level one is to collect as many coins as possible. Some tips on playing this level: if you have trouble collecting coins when they’re spread out over large areas, purchase the Stud Magnet Red Brick before playing this level and activate it while playing. Then, use one of the many vehicles available in this level and just drive over anything you see to get coins. Or, to make this level go even faster, purchase a multiplying Red Brick before starting the level and activate it while playing. For example, if you’re using a 6x multiplier, each silver coin you collect is worth 60 instead of 10, each gold coin is 600, and each blue coin is 6000. You can also activate more than one multiplier (ex. activate 8x and 6x multiplier together, and the coins will be 48 times as much as usual) for even more coins.

Level Two

When you go to play level two, two options will come up on the screen: Play Bonus Level or Become A Builder! Part 1 of 4. Right now, I’ll be focusing on Play Bonus Level Two, but later on I’ll explain the building part of the level.

Start the level as Harry. There are five buttons on the ground, each controlling a different platform on the ground. Press the corresponding buttons to help Ron reach you. Once he does, have him use Scabbers to crawl through the tunnel and open the gate. Step on the button on the ground and the other character will do the same, lowering the platform and letting you climb to reach the Gold Brick.

Level Three

This time, your first goal is to make a potion. Jump on the bench and the other character will lift you to get the first ingredient. The second ingredient is on top of the flowers, and the third is down the stairs to the left. Drink the potion, pull the chain, and climb up to the closet to put on earmuffs. Pick up the Mandrake, shatter the glass, and pot it, then stand on one of the buttons to open the gate. The lower ground is now filled with lava. Try your best not to fall in at this part. Put the platforms into the middle and jump across to reach the Gold Brick at the end.

Level Four

In this level, you’ll be playing as Ron and Hermione. Have one of them use their pet to climb through the tunnel. Use Lumos to remove the vines and go to the closet to put on earmuffs. Collect the two potion ingredients and add them to the cauldron, then pick up the Mandrake and smash the glass on the right. Pot it, then use Hermione to open the bookcase and get the final ingredient. Pull the chain to lower the platform and jump up, pushing the ball onto the ground. Use it to plug one of the holes in the ground, then climb up to where the closet is and turn the wheel to elevate the water level. Climb up to the other ball and push it down, then lower the water again and push it into the hole to plug it up and open the gate.

Level Five

Have Ron use Scabbers to climb through the tunnel and stand on the button. Climb across and have Hagrid pull the chain, then have Scabbers climb through the tunnel and do the same as before. Collect the three ingredients for the potion at the end, and use it to switch to a Ravenclaw character. Go to the door at the far left and unlock it, then go inside and put on earmuffs. Carry the Mandrake back to the right side and use it to smash the glass in front of the tunnel. Switch back to Ron and have Scabbers go through the tunnel to reach the Gold Brick.

Year Four, Level Six: The Dark Lord Returns

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

First Time

Shoot the yellow flower in the bottom right corner, then shoot the plants surrounding the yellow circle. Put the pieces together to make armor, and shoot it. Follow the directions it points in to move on to the next area, where you’ll have to do the same thing. Start by shooting the yellow flower, then kill the Cornish Pixies, put together the armor, and follow its directions. The next part has two flowers you’ll need to shoot, and use Lumos on the vines to get the armor and follow its directions once again.

Try not to get hit by the moving walls and go through the small doorway cut into the hedge. Shoot the next yellow flower, then destroy the Boggart for the character token for Fleur (Lake Task). Continue along the maze, destroying any plants with Lumos. Eventually you’ll reach a point where you can see the Gryffindor Crest piece to the left behind a hedge, and some Cornish Pixies to the right. Kill the Cornish Pixies, take the arrow, put it on its stand, and rotate it to enter the next part of the maze.

Go forward and to the left, shooting the next yellow flower. The last one is to the right, between the two walls, and to the right again. Shooting it will give you the character token for Cedric (Maze Task). The Student In Peril is directly behind you, being strangled by some vines. Shoot him to free him. Go forward and to the right, near the digging area, and destroy the plants with Lumos for the Hufflepuff Crest piece. Open the book and build the springboard to jump over the wall. Clear away the vines and levitate the fly onto the spider web, then do so again to destroy the walls. Build the fly again to scare away the sphinx and walk to the trophy to move on.

To get the collectable in this area, you have to be playing as Cedric. Destroy the Death Eaters, but ignore Voldemort for now. Levitate each of the skeletons to earn the Slytherin Crest piece. Now, switch to Harry and fire the spell back at Voldemort. Destroy the Death Eaters and fire the spell back at Voldemort twice more to end the level.

Free Play

Near the beginning of the maze area is a wall that needs destroyed by a Dark Wizard. Destroy it with Crucio, then have a Digging Character use the spot to dig up the Ravenclaw Crest piece. Right before entering the third area of the maze, destroy the wall here with Crucio to get the Gryffindor Crest piece. In this same area is a digging spot; use a Digging Character to dig up the character token for Viktor (Lake Task).

Year Four, Level Five: The Black Lake

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

First Time

Shoot the clam on the ground close to where you start the level. As you swim right, shoot the clam in the background. Go through the tube and pull down both sides of the seaweed on the rock. Shoot the balloon-like creatures that appear shortly after. Swim left and shoot the clam that sits on top of the chain. Continue going left and shoot the skeleton with the chest to get the character token for Harry (Lake Task). Now go right and shoot the clam in the background near the boat. There’s another clam in the foreground, behind some seaweed. Swim down and destroy the barrier from the tube to climb through. Shoot the clam here. Go back and levitate the oars to the skeleton in the boat, and have him row back. The Student In Peril should appear from the hole. Go back to where you were earlier and some tentacles should appear, blocking you from getting through. Work with the other character to unwrap the first two tentacles, and the last one should unwrap itself. Swim forward and shoot the clam in the background, then climb through the tube. Swim left and shoot the clam in the foreground before continuing. Pull the seaweed on the next rock and shoot two more balloon-like creatures. The final clam isn’t far ahead, on top of the rock where the fish tail sits. Shooting it will give you the Ravenclaw Crest piece. Put the fish together and it will destroy the rocks ahead, letting you into the next area.

Shoot behind the seaweed as you enter the area to get the character token for Guitarist. Swim to the bottom area and levitate the fence to get through. Levitate the crab onto the purple platform to let the character on the top through, then switch to that character and shoot the squid’s eye to make it leave. Use Lumos to get through the ink (clearing all of the ink away will get you the Hufflepuff Crest piece). Swim up and to the right, destroy the red plant, and put the pearl into the clam’s mouth on the bottom right to continue.

Swim right and levitate the first chain. Put the seaweed onto the rock and shoot the balloon creature that appears. Swim left and use Lumos on the vines, then levitate the chain and put the seaweed onto the rock. Shooting the final creature will earn you the Gryffindor Crest piece. Destroy the barrier from the tube, climb through, and shoot the chest to the left for the character token Krum Shark. Go right and levitate the ball onto the scale, then levitate the chain. Shoot the silver circle on each chain to free the characters and end the level.

Free Play

Have a Dark Wizard destroy the chest at the start of the second area with Crucio to get the Slytherin Crest piece.

Year Four, Level Four: Secret Of The Egg

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

First Time

In the first area, you’ll be searching for four shells that will get you to the next area. Pick up the first shell in front of the hole in the ground and put it on the first spot. Activate the three torches, two on the right side and one on the left near the painting, for the Hufflepuff Crest piece. Shoot the four medicine cabinets (three are on the left above the sinks, and one is on the right side of the room) for the Slytherin Crest piece. Shoot the three leaking sinks for the second shell. Defeat the Boggart for the character token for Cedric Diggory. For the third shell, empty out the barrel and put the pieces together for another toilet lid. Put one of them down and the other character will do the same, causing the third toilet to shoot up and release the next shell. Shoot the yellow object and levitate it into the painting, and the man inside will give you the final shell. Jump into the hole in the ground to continue.

Immediately after starting the second area, destroy the lock from the cabinet to the left. Open it to get the character token for Fleur (Lake Task). Use the broom to dust off the window painting of the mermaid, and destroy the crabs afterwards. Next she’ll throw a train for you to put together, then some more crabs. After destroying these, levitate the rain cloud to her and she’ll throw you a wheel. Levitate it to the handle to the right and turn it to end the level.

Free Play

In the first area, after getting the shell from shooting the leaking sinks, have a Strong Character pull the chain to get the Gryffindor Crest piece. Have a Dark Wizard destroy the two chests on either side of the shells; the one on the left holds the character token for Moaning Myrtle (Swimsuit), while the other holds the Student In Peril.

Use a Book Character on the bookcase at the start of the second area for the Ravenclaw Crest piece.

Year Four, Level Three: The First Task

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

First Time

As the level begins, use the bucket to put out the fire to get the character token for Cedric (Dragon Task). Destroy the rocks at the end of the row of Dark Magic boulders and put the pieces together to make a dog that destroys the barriers in front of you. Levitate the pink platform to its place to get some pieces; put them together to make a cauldron. The first ingredient is to the left of the spiderweb, the second under the vines, and the third is part of the skeleton nearby. Drink the potion, climb onto the platform, and pull the chain to make the dragon leave. Levitate the platform to its spot and jump across. Avoid the dragon’s fire-breathing and jump across. While on the last piece of land, levitate the bucket to put the fire out. Go up and destroy the green barrier for some blocks. Have Hermione use Crookshanks to dig up the spot on the ground for a blue block, and shoot the Cornish Pixie down to get the red one. Put the blocks on the corresponding platforms (red, blue, green) and the Gryffindor Crest piece will appear at the top. Climb up and collect it to move on.

Now you’ll be running from the dragon. As you enter the first building, go to the right for the character token for Fleur (Dragon Task). Keep going and eventually you’ll see the Ravenclaw Crest piece to the left. Almost immediately after finding the Ravenclaw Crest piece, there should be a cabinet with chains on it to the right. Now that you have Reducto, you can destroy it and free the Student In Peril. Keep running to end the level.

Free Play

Near the beginning, have a Dark Wizard destroy the large black boulders with Crucio for the Hufflepuff Crest piece. Have a Dark Wizard destroy all of the smaller rocks in the first area with Crucio for the Slytherin Crest piece. Before going to make the potion, there is a large black sphere. Destroy it with Crucio to get the character token for Harry (Dragon Task).
