Harry Potter 2 is a 2D platformer that is based on the first book in the Harry Potter series. In it, the player must collect a specific number of items (such as challenge stars, wizard cards, and golden finches) then bring them to the end of the stage to continue.  You can attack, crawl, and dash by holding down the B button.  Although the game shows how a numeric value as to how much damage you're dealing, it always calculates the same amount for each type of enemy (for instance, enemies that take two hits to defeat will always take two hits) making it rather redundant.  Like many BBD games, the soundtrack is taken wholesale from the GBC game Lemmings and Oh No! More Lemmings.


  • Harry Potter: Intro is in Chinese but has an English title screen. Intro lags because of Chinese text. The most common version of the game, as it's been dumped for a while.
  • Harry Potter 2: The black art wtrstle edition: Intro is in English but has a Chinese title screen. Each level introductory screen reprints the text from the intro.

A sequel to this game called 2003 Ha Li Xiao Zi IV (2003哈利小子IV) or 2003 Ha Li Bo Te 2 - Xiao Shi De Mi Shi (2003哈利波特2-消失的密室) was released later, which sports the same game mechanics and even stolen soundtrack; however the intro, graphics, and level design are completely different. This game was published by Sintax.
