Year Seven, Level Six: DOBBY!

In this level you’ll need a Regular Wizard, Dark Wizard, Animagus, Parselmouth, and Deluminator Character.

First Time

Start by putting on the Spectrespecs and building the chest, which has a lock on it. None of the characters have their wands, so you can use one of them to roll into the shelf nearby and knock down the key. The pieces inside of the chest can be assembled into a cauldron to make a potion. Since you’re just making a potion right from the start of the level, you can go ahead and get your collectible out of the way. Use Ron’s Deluminator to transfer the light from the lit lantern to the unlit one a little to the right for a potion ingredient, then take the light back and bring it down to the chest in the lower level to clear away the vines and get the Ollivander character token. Put that ingredient into the cauldron, then start looking for the next ones; one is found by rolling into the barrels in the front left corner of the room and putting the pieces together, and the other by using Pigwidgeon to climb through the tunnel on the left side of the wall. Adding all of the ingredients will reveal a wall that must be unlocked using Parseltongue. Then, assemble the pieces to move on.

And now, you’re forced into a series of duels. Start by dueling either Draco or Narcissa Malfoy, then they will disappear and Bellatrix will send some Death Eaters after you while she shoots from afar. Some of the objects she’ll fling at you can be thrown back, so watch out for them. Each time she loses a heart, Draco and Narcissa show up for another duel. Defeat one of them and make Bellatrix lose another heart, and now Draco and Narcissa are throwing things at you as well. Throw something back at each of them to knock them out and duel Bellatrix for the final round. Right around now is a good time to get a collectible in, so go up to the back right corner and use Wingardium Leviosa on the stack of plates three times for the Slytherin Crest piece. Now duel Bellatrix for your last fight of Year Seven, and you’re done!

Free Play

Since you didn’t have access to magic in your first run through this level, many of these collectibles are easily found. The Student In Peril can be rescued by using Reducto on the silver chain on the far left, next to the pet tunnel. The Hufflepuff Crest piece is found by shooting the three skeletons found around the room: one on the wall between the pet tunnel and the Spectrespecs, one next to the red brick wall on the far right, and one after dropping down from the previous and walking toward the screen on the right side. Use Diffindo on the red brick wall and build the vehicle to clean up the five water spills– one directly where the vehicle starts, one in the lower area under that, one in between two barrels near the Spectrespecs dispenser, one in front of the pet tunnel, and the last one under the stairs on the left side– for the Gryffindor Crest piece. And, finally, the last collectible of this area isn’t so easy if you’re just playing as a regular wizard– you’ll need a Dark Wizard to unlock the chest down the stairs to the left to get the character token for Wormtail.

Finally, the last two collectibles can be found in the dueling area. Both need a Dark Wizard to unlock, and both are close to each other. Using Dark Magic on the fireplace will give you the character token for Dobby, while doing the same to the object by the fireplace will give you the Ravenclaw Crest piece.

Afterward

Be aware that since this is the end of Year 7, random Death Eaters may appear in areas such as Diagon Alley and the Leaky Cauldron.

Congratulations, you’ve finished Year Seven: The Deathly Hallows, Part 1!

Year Seven, Level Five: Lovegood’s Lunacy

In this level you’ll need a Regular Wizard, Dark Wizard, Weasley, Bag Character, Digging Character, Mechanic, Book Character, Animagus, and Deluminator Character.

First Time

Right away, you’ll be able to get the Student In Peril by walking to the end of the path and using Lumos on the vines. Then, go back and to the right and use Wingardium Leviosa to pull the carrots out of the ground for the Gryffindor Crest piece. Also, you can shoot five crows for the Slytherin Crest piece, found on the fence near the carrots, on the fence in the back right corner, near the digging spot on the left, to the left of the bee, and on top of the house. Now you’ll be working to get inside. First, release the balloon to the right of the doorway. Fill up the scarecrow with water using Aguamenti to grow another plant, then release the next balloon. On the opposite side, to the left of the doorway, use Lumos on the vines. Dig up Hermione’s bag plate using Crookshanks, then use Hermione herself to activate the bag plate and distract the bee. Now you can release the final balloon, assemble the leftover pieces into a knocker, and move on to the next area.

To the right of the fireplace is a bin of dishes. Shoot it and the dishes will turn into a drum set. Destroy it for the Luna (Purple Coat) character token. To the left of the staircase, shoot the red object on the wall and assemble the pieces to build a chain. Pull it and climb the stairs to move on.

Once Xenophilius begins the story, you’ll be playing as the Three Brothers. Remember, Brother 1 has the Elder Wand, Brother 2 has the Resurrection Stone, and Brother 3 has the Invisibility Cloak. Use Brother 1 to destroy the barriers and jump over the rocks. (Any of the Brothers can be used to do other magic, such as lifting the tree branch in the next part, but only Brother 1 can destroy sparkling objects.) Jump on the branch and drop the two objects, then build a mushroom to bounce on. Now, go forward and switch to Brother 2. Use the Stone on your dead fiancee and have her fix the bridge. Now you’ll need Brother 3 to use the Cloak to sneak past Death and chop down the tree. Go forward, use Brother 1 to destroy the cart, and switch to Brother 2. After a while you’ll reach another part where you must use the dead fiancee to stop the windmill. Now use Brother 3 to sneak past Death again and throw the pumpkin at him. Do this twice more and he’ll leave, then use Brother 1 to destroy the barrier and switch to Brother 2 to get across the water. Fix the bridge after it is destroyed, then move on. Destroy the next barrier with Brother 1, then switch to Brother 2, make the bell, and use the ghost to ring it. Switch to Brother 3, put on the Cloak, and move the light. Now back to Brother 1 to destroy the next barrier. Use Wingardium Leviosa on the wheel and assemble the pieces to drop down. Use him to destroy the yellow barrels and make stairs, then go back up to finish the area.

Back in Xenophilius’s house, you’re finding the ingredients to a potion. Use Diffindo on the wall, then sweep away the spiderweb and use Wingardium Leviosa on the bucket to get the first ingredient. Use Hermione to open the bookcase and lift the pieces for the next one. Then, use Reducto on the lock on the cabinet, put on the Spectrespecs, and assemble the pieces for the last one. Drink the potion, then go to the right of the red wall and pull the handle. Put Crookshanks through the tunnel and build the chain, then pull it to lower the staircase. Go back over near the bookcase using Ron and trap the light in the Deluminator. Go up the stairs.

Walk over to the chest and release the light for the Ravenclaw Crest piece. Use Wingardium Leviosa on the bed to lift the blanket, then use Reducto on the lock. Attach the handle to the box and turn it to finish the level.

Free Play

In the first area, dig up the spot next to Hermione’s bag plate and use Dark Magic on it. Then use Lumos on the vines in the left corner to uncover the Weasley box, and climb up the wall. Use Dark Magic on the Spectrespecs dispenser to assemble the pieces and get the character token for Xenophilius (Luna).

In the second area, you’ll find two collectibles. The character token for Skeleton is found by using Dark Magic on the chest, then using Wingardium Leviosa to paint a circle. The Hufflepuff Crest piece can also be earned here by using Arthur Weasley to repair the broken vehicle. Then, you must ride the vehicle and clean up all of the spots on the ground to get the piece.

Afterward

Use Hermione’s bag plate, then levitate the ball up and swing it to destroy the fence. Go forward to move on.

Year Seven, Level Four: Sword and Locket

In this level you’ll need a Regular Wizard, Dark Wizard, Weasley, Bag Character, and Parselmouth.

First Time

And we’re back with a water level. You should be able to find one of three jellyfish you must shoot four times to the left as you start. Go to the right and use Wingardium Leviosa to remove the hook, then use it again to make a swordfish and cut into the ice to allow access to the lower area. Go down as deep as you can, then make the bubbles come out of the ground to raise the boulder and allow your partner access overhead. Now your partner must do the opposite with the bubbles that you did and close it up, allowing the crab to walk past and you to move forward. The second jellyfish you must shoot is not far after this. Use Lumos to get around the vines and head upwards, where you’ll find the final jellyfish. Shooting it as you did the others will grant you the Hufflepuff Crest piece. Use Wingardium Leviosa to attach the bait to the hook and a fish will come to get it, dropping the hammer that you can use to break the glass on the right and get the character token for Harry (Locket). Then, use it to break the glass with the sword inside to move on.

Now you’re back on land. Head to the right and force the snowman up to get the character token for Ron (Underwear). While you’re here, use Diffindo on the wall to make a torch to melt the ice. Pick up the object and carry it to its platform to raise the Parseltongue wall a little. Then head forward to the fallen tree, get the Weasley box down, and use it with Ron for the Ravenclaw Crest piece. Now go back and remove the flowers from the Apparition plate to use it to reach the left side. Use Lumos on the vines, then levitate yourself up and take the object. Drop down from the right, since you can’t Apparate with the object, and carry it back to its platform. This should raise the wall enough for you to use it.

And finally, the battle against a piece of Voldemort’s soul. First go up to the glowing spot to attack, then avoid whatever he shoots at you. Attack again and he’ll send spiders to try to harm you. After another attack, you’ll have to build a fan and use it to blow away the little tornado things. A final attack will finish the level.

Free Play

After using the swordfish to cut through the ice, you should come across a chest sealed with Dark Magic. Open it up for the Gryffindor Crest piece.

In the second area, use Hermione’s bag plate to build a mushroom to jump on. You can get the Slytherin Crest piece just by jumping, but this is also how you get two other collectibles. Use the Spectrespecs to build the three statues to get the character token for Hermione (Grey Coat). Also, you can use Dark Magic on the tree to release the Student In Peril.

Afterward

Use Hermione’s plate to build the Apparition plate, then use it to start the next level.

Year Seven, Level Three: In Grave Danger

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

First Time

While playing this area, use Wingardium Leviosa on five bouquets of flowers (one immediately to the right in front of the grave, one near the Weasley box, one in front of another grave to the right, one in front of another grave down the path, and the final one in front of yet another grave to the far right) to get the Hufflepuff Crest piece. Shake the snow off the top of the grave and use Hermione to check if it’s the right one. The correct grave, you’ll find, is toward the middle, and you must assemble and use a salt dispenser to melt the snow before checking it.

Use Reducto on the lock to get a bag plate for Hermione. Use Aguamenti to fill the can and put out the fire, then arrange the pieces into some teeth and chomp away the books on the stairs.

Avoid Nagini’s shots by running, then throw whatever falls and use Wingardium Leviosa to be able to move closer. Around the middle of the battle, you must use Hermione’s bag plate and pull out a hammer to use.

Free Play

To the far right there is a cage-ish thing that the Student In Peril is trapped inside. To get him out, use Dark Magic on the bars in the front. Go back to the start of the level and use the Weasley box to open the gate. Shoot the statue and jump up on it to get the Lily Potter character token. Then use a digging character on the spot, go out of the gate to put on some Spectrespecs, and use them to build a statue and get the Gryffindor Crest piece. Use a Deluminator character to take the light from the lamp here to the Diffindo wall on the far right. Use the recently discovered bag plate and wind up the record player to cause some ghosts to dance. Once they’ve finished, you’ll get the Ravenclaw Crest piece.

Using Dark Magic on the door in the back of Bathilda’s house will let you into a secret area. Here you can throw the garbage away and put the lid on the trash bin to get the Slytherin Crest piece. Also, use Wingardium Leviosa to run the item through the press for the Bathilda (Snake) character token. Shoot the spider hanging from the wall here, the two in the previous room, and one in the final area to get the Harry (Godric’s Hollow) character token.

Afterward

Use Hermione’s bag plate, then use the dragon to melt away the snow and follow the Patronus.

Year Seven, Level Two: Magic Is Might

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

First Time

Right from the start, go to the right and destroy the two chains with Reducto. Use Wingardium Leviosa to turn on the lamp to the left of the chain, then go to the opposite side and turn on the lamp to the right of the bookcase. Use Diffindo on the wall and wind up the toy, then go forward to the front of the room. The final lamp is to the right of the door with the eye, and turning it on will give you the character token for Ron (Reg Cattermole). Switch to Ron and use the Deluminator on the lamp on the left, then move the light to the lamp beside the statue. Build the pieces into a violin and use it to play a song to make the door open.

Shoot the desk to find the key for one lock, and spin the swords on the wall for the second key. Unlock both chains to move on.

Now you can head through the previously locked gate. Fill up the watering can using Aguamenti, then use it to water the flower. Place the flower on the purple spot to get the man inside down and he will unlock the gate for you. Walking through the larger gate will allow you to the next area.

Use Reducto on the lock on the elevator door, then have Ron use Pigwidgeon to knock down the pieces and climb through the tunnel. Put these pieces together to make the elevator arrive, then go inside.

You’ll enter during a fight scene with Umbridge. Shoot the Ministry workers that appear, then hide behind the chair in the center as Umbridge throws things at you. Throw the final object back at her, then repeat as necessary. There’s a quick and simple duel after hitting Umbridge twice, another sequence of her throwing things at you, and then she’ll come down to duel you herself.

After defeating Umbridge you’ll move onto another running scene. This is where you’ll find the hardest crest piece in the game to obtain, the Slytherin Crest piece. When you’re almost near the end of the running part, you’ll enter an area that turns instead of going straight. Immediately run to the left and go behind the statue to get the crest piece. Like I said, it’s extremely difficult to get, and that fact is what makes this level so irritating: if you don’t get it, the Dementors will catch up to you and you’ll be sent to the end of the level, meaning you’ll have to play the entire level over in order to get it. When I first played the game, I had to replay this level five or six times before getting it.

Free Play

For the Gryffindor Crest piece, go to the left in the first area and pull the handle using a strong character. Shoot each of the five ducks for the crest to appear. Also in this area is the Harry (Albert Runcorn) character token, which is found by opening the bookcase.

Use a key character to open the vault in Umbridge’s office for the Ravenclaw Crest piece.

In the area with the elevators, use Dark Magic on the chest to the right and then again on the scroll inside for the Hufflepuff Crest piece. Use Dark Magic on the elevator door to free the Student In Peril and earn the character token for Hermione (Mafalda).

Afterward

Now you’ll have access to the tent (and, if you’re playing on Xbox 360, get the easily missed Hogwarts Has Changed achievement: just go to the left and open the Marauder’s Map). But instead of going inside, you’ll be working outside for a while. Use Hermione’s bag plate to remove the rocks, then build the pieces into an Apparition plate and use it to reach the next level.

Year Seven, Level One: The Seven Harrys

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

First Time

The three collectibles within this area are very easy to get, so I’ll start off with those. To get the Gryffindor Crest piece, straighten the three pictures on the walls: one near the door to the stairs, one you must put back on the wall, and one on the porch. Go out into the yard and use Lumos on the vine around the shed to save the Student In Peril. After he comes out, there will be some pieces on the ground; put them together into a wheelchair. There are three sprinklers on the ground to ride over and set off, and once you’ve done this, you’ll get the Ravenclaw Crest piece. Now you can go back inside and tip the three bottles on the windowsill for an ingredient. The second can be found after the vacuum is destroyed. For the third, use Reducto on the lock on the refrigerator. Drink the potion to move on.

Basically this part is just like the cauldron brewing sections of a level, but instead you’re finding the parts to Hagrid’s motorcycle. Go to the far left to find one piece in a bush, which can be removed by simply shaking it. Near the bike, fill the tank with water and connect the hose, then levitate the gutter up for a wheel. Finally, use Hagrid to pull the handle on the trash bin for the last piece. Place it on the bike and hop on.

Now, all you have to do is ride.

Quick Deluminator/Bag lesson: use Ron to transfer the light from the lamp by the door to the one by the fireplace, then use Hermione to dig a small plane out of her purse and exit the area.

Using Aguamenti on the small flames in this area is optional, but very helpful. During this entire wedding section of the level, Death Eaters will randomly show up. Just shoot them to make them go away. Start off the area by shooting the vase by the yellow balloon on the right and assembling the pieces into a cloud. Use the cloud to put out the large fire, then assemble the leftover wood into a cage. Shoot it to make a dove fly out. Shoot the Death Eater here, and then put out the flames on Hermione’s bag plate. Use the plate, then chip away the ice and place the sculpture over the flames to put them out. Assemble the wood pieces again and shoot the cage. Shoot the Death Eater, extinguish the flames, use Hermione’s plate, then fill up the tank with water. Build this last wood pile into a cage and shoot it for the Hufflepuff Crest piece. Have Ron use the Deluminator on the lantern hanging by this cage and move the light to the one on the cake to end the level.

Free Play

While looking for the parts to Hagrid’s motorcycle, use a Dark Wizard to open the garage and build the pieces into a rocket. Fill it with water using Aguamenti, then jump on the plunger for the Mad-Eye Moody character token. Shoot the fountain, use the dig spot, and put the gnome next to the others on the right for the Slytherin Crest piece.

At the wedding, clear away the blocks from the gift, then use Dark Magic on it and make an Apparition plate. Apparate to the other side and use the Spectrespecs for the Ron (Wedding) character token. The other character token, Hermione (Red Dress), can be found by having a strong character pull the handle on the keg by Hermione’s bag plate.

Afterward

Apparition unlocks immediately, also giving you a Gold Brick. Go into the diner for a battle scene. You can flip up the table to use as a shield. Wait until one of them throws something at you, then throw it back and shoot them. They’ll switch places after getting hit each time, then once you’ve beaten them, you can follow the trail down the road and start the next level.
