The Dark Tower

Shoot the green lamp. You need to shoot 5 of these to unlock the Blue Crest piece. Have your Patronum spell ready then continue to the right. Destroy the wraith along the way, then melt the ice covering the second lamp. Shoot the chest then use the hammer to destroy the rock covering the vines. Clear the vines then kill the wraith.

Next melt the ice covering the third lamp in the middle of the bridge. Head to the fountain and melt the ice. Shoot the fourth lamp afterward. Use WiLe to bring the water-filled bucket to the right side and water the seeds. Shoot the flowers and jump on them to reach the upper platform. Shoot the torch-holder to melt half the ice covering the door. Kill the wraith that will appear. You'll also find the fifth lamp here. Shoot the chest to the right then rebuild the second torch-holder. Shoot it so it melts the other half of the door. Enter the door when ready.

In this section, you'll need to split up. Use WiLe to place the first platform so your partner can proceed. Next, switch to your partner and use the torch to retract the vines and for the wooden palette to drop.

Switch to the character on the right side and continue forth. Place the platform again to the left, switch then use WiLe on the lego pieces to rebuild the path to the right. Switch then continue until you reach the door. Rebuild the path to the left using the debris blocking the door and regroup with your partner. Enter the next room to continue.

In the next area, use WiLe to bring the cauldron down. Use the WiLe again to the small barrel beside the tree. Use the axe to chop the branch where the flower piece is sitting on top off. Next, shoot the planter to the left then destroy the large snake that will appear. Grab the tooth piece. Next, jump/ climb down south and lift the purple gargoyle and place it above the window to smash it.

Take the Red Crest piece hiding to the right, then switch to Hermione and solve the puzzle cabinet. Grab the last piece and put it on the cauldron. Take note that two more wraiths will appear. Destroy them, use the strength potion then pull the chain to raise the bridge. Cross the bridge and go upstairs for a boss fight.

During this battle, you need to use multi-lock to destroy multiple wraiths faster. Harry's Patronum spell has a slight delay for every shot so using it normally by pressing B won't help that much. The pattern for this boss is simple. You need to use WiLe on the barrels until you find a plumber. Wait for it to absorb everything around it and the plumber will stuck on its face. This is the time its vulnerable so shoot it to deal damage. Repeat two more times to win the battle and complete the chapter.

Wraith boss battle

James Potter (Ghost) - After crossing the frozen bridge, turn left then blast the silver lock on the door.
After getting the character token above, blast the wraith to save the student in peril.
Lily Potter (Ghost) – After entering the building, unlock the chest right in front of you.
Green Crest piece - After getting across the ceiling, use Griphook to open the safe.
Sirius Black – In the third area, jump down south where the purple gargoyle is. Enter the room then destroy the dark cabinet to the left.
Yellow Crest piece - You need to shoot 6 silver gargoyles to get this piece. One is above the door where you came from, two are hanging to the south, there is one each in at the edge of the tree and statue (you'll get a better view of them while crossing the bridge), the last one is right before you go upstairs before crossing the bridge.

Guests whos game is glitching.. I have the same problem, and It`s because this game is quite old compared to the new computers, so the game isn´t probably tested on your computer model so It can glitch/freeze/crash. And it´s been made to windows vista/xp according cdbox, so it may not work perfectly on for example windows 8 (I have it) or Apple.

To a "Guest" who said his game keeps Glitching,..., I'm having the same problem. My game also keeps glitching/freezing/crashing. I don't know what to do with it, anyone got any ideas?

Is anyone else having the problem where they can't get the cauldron down in the third scene?

Added 1st Feb 2015, ID #510180

I agree.

BTW whoever made this guide: the "wraiths" are dementors.

Added 24th Jan 2015, ID #506424

It's actually really annoying that whoever wrote this knows nothing about Harry Potter.

Added 24th Jan 2014, ID #347569

they are not called wraiths... it is a dementor

Added 24th Jan 2014, ID #347562

My game keeps crashing/glitching/freezing when I get to the part where you have to shoot the torches. Anybody having the same problem, or is it just me? Also, does anyone know a cheat code to skip a level so I can save Sirius and move on? I've been stuck there for almost two weeks because of the glitch/crash/freeze.

You don't break the red lock... It is "opened" when you beat the dementors and save Sirius (He is who is behind the bars). Its part of the story... if you beat this level you automatically opened the lock.

How do I enable the "multi-lock" function for casting spells? I know I've used it before but now when I need it the most - all I'm doing is ticking them off!

Added 8th Aug 2011, ID #65071

The ice on the barrels during the boss battle? You hit the lights to the sides and they melt the barrels. Then Wingardium Leviosa the barrels as usual.

I can't break the ice. I've been trying for hours but they just don't break. please help

Added 3rd Jul 2011, ID #54306

How is it done? Obviously someone did it, or they wouldn't know who it was.

Added 11th Jun 2011, ID #48589

that doesn't answer if the lock can be broken

Added 24th Feb 2011, ID #30258

The person behind the red lock is Sirius Black.

Added 18th Oct 2010, ID #15577
