Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen ("Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" in German) is an unlicensed game for the Sega Mega Drive made sometime after the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was released. An alternate version of the game was released titled Pokémon II.


The game plays somewhat like a 3D Pac-Man clone, with a total of three isometric levels to play through. The levels take place in Hogwarts, the Forbidden Forest and an Arabian area resembling Agrabah more than any setting in Harry Potter. The player controls Harry Potter, who has to collect dots which move around the map while avoiding any enemies. The player can teleport if they walk off the edge of the map to another edge of it, which is decided at random. After beating the third level the player is sent back to the title screen, and it is unknown whether or not this is intended.

The music and sound effects are all done in PCM format, and are somewhat good quality for a Sega Mega Drive game. The graphics appear to be pre-rendered of some sort, although there seem to be some tiling issues with the level layouts.

Pokémon II is an alternate version of the Harry Potter game; it is unknown which game is a hack of the other. Here Pikachu replaces Harry, the first level becomes themed around bars/restaurants, and the second one is a copy of the one from Harry Potter but with an orange tint. The music in the first level of this game is a pitched-up PCM version of a song from Cool Spot for Sega Mega Drive, which is not present in Harry Potter.


Pokémon II[]



  • The game makes a weird loud noise when starting up (static in the Harry Potter game, and some weird tones for Pokémon II)
  • This game uses the German poster of the film as the title screen image.
  • The music in the first level is a PCM version of a song from the movie, and the one from the third level is a PCM version of the Street Fighter II theme.
  • The second level uses graphics from the first level of Sonic 3D Blast, for the Sega Mega Drive.
  • The "Ready? Go!" voice sample is taken from Puzzle Bobble.
  • One known dump of Pokémon II credits Tommy Xie, formerly of Dragon Co.; this implies the game was a Dragon production. However, the only known dump of the Harry Potter version alters this credit, seemingly from the ROM dumper (as it refers to an "emurussia forums").[1]
  • A simplified version of this game, using only the first level's graphics and with one of the enemy characters replacing Harry, appears on the Sunnyflyer 30-in-1 plug and play system under the title 3D Bean.[2]
    • As this title is produced by Hummer Software - the successor to Dragon Co. - this port further indicates that Pokémon II was a Dragon Co. production.
