Old Stuff 6 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Walkthrough

While reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, it struck me that a portion of the book could translate quite well as a point and click adventure game. I love the old LucasArts adventure games like Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle etc, and decided to create a mock walkthrough in a similar style.

I’m still working on creating some pixel art to make this page not suck, but you can read what I’ve got so far here.

Ron gets out at Level 2 – Department of Magical Law Enforcement. The lift reaches Level 1– Minister for Magic and Support Staff. Dolores Umbridge is standing outside the lift. She talks to Hermione/Mafalda and tells her go to the courtroom.

You now have a choice of playing as Ron or Harry.

As Ron

Location: Yaxley’s Office

I will not go through a list of things that you can try to stop the rain, it’s more fun to experiement for yourself. I can tell you that there is nothing Ron can do to stop the rain, although many things will cause extra devastation to Yaxley’s office. There is no penalty for this, so feel free to cause as much destruction as you wish.

The only thing that is necessary to do in this room is to Talk To Yaxley’s Receptionist. Keep talking until you get the option “I give up!”. Choose this option and Ron will be sent off to find Bernie Pillsworth.

The player is now put in control of Hermione. As Hermione
