Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone GBC Game Review
I know what you're thinking. What in the name of Dumbledore is a GBC game? Well, if you're asking in the name of Dumbledore, I'll tell you. It's a Game Boy Color game. To be more specific, It's a Game Boy Color emulator game, possible thanks to the magic of ipasigner.io and GBA4IOS. Go through a fairly simple process, and presto, you're back in those cherished memories of pixels and Pokémon. Aah, the good old days. Anyway, enough with the technicalities, let's talk about the real deal. I found this game online, and I vaguely remember playing it when I was younger. What I didn't remember was how very...quirky it was. (You'll she what I mean later;-). I mean, you fight... Well, I'll leave that for later (cue twilight zone theme song). Without further ado, let's dive right into this review.
I hope nobody had their graphics hopes high, because this game is no OLED screen. You start off with a picture of a pixely letter from Albus Dumbledore, telling you very concisely that you have been invited to Hogwarts. Thanks for the note, Albs. Then, you switch to Diagon Alley (do you say DIA-gun alley or dia-GON alley? Leave your answer in the comments. You're Harry, shockingly, and you're with Hagrid. He says some stuff, then tells you to go to Ollivander's (if you don't know what that is then you should just leave this article right now, before a mob of angry Harry Potter fans start casting Crucio spells on you) before leaving you. Talk about irresponsible guardians. Tsk tsk. You make your way to Ollivander's, which is literally 5 steps away, and enter the building. Woopee fun.
In Ollivander's you get your wand, obviously, the you head off to Gringott's to start rolling in Harry's cash. Why didn't' this parents invest it? Anyway, this is where you start getting some action. Wooh! Things are heating up in this kiln. (Nobody will get that joke).Earlier, when I barely stopped myself from telling you what you fight, I didn't want you to know all of Harry's secrets. But here it is, the big reveal! Drum roll please! You fight... RATS! Yes, I said it, rats! Now, If you're not rolling on the floor laughing right now, you've never read the books, but the only time Harry comes even remotely close to fighting rats is in Book 3. (Remember Ron's rat?) I guess I understand why they did it, to warm you up for the real fight, but seriously, rats!?!
Okay, maybe I'm hating a little too much here, but come on. Rats! Anyway, I suppose it's not that bad of a game. It really brings up the ol' nostalgia. Maybe I'll do a walk through or another review after I get really far into the game. What do you think?
