Let me say: I’m no fan of Harry Potter. I haven’t read any of the books or seen any of the films. But I do like this Game Boy Color game.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second mini level-grinder type RPG, made by Griptonite Games and published by Electronic Arts in 2002.
It uses exactly the same game engine as 2001’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, which is fine, because it works well, and graphically the game is also very similar to its predecessor. Both games were probably developed in tandem.
I have to admit: both Chamber of Secrets and Philosopher’s Stone – the games – surprised me when I first played them. I expected them to be rubbish, but they were in fact quite absorbing. I love level-grinders anyway, so that was a big factor in me liking them.
