What works

Game runs (in 800X600 resolution), sound works 

What does not

There were some shadow problems under the characters in the first intro (there was a white-ish square under the characters). Didn't see this later on (but I didn't play too much of this game, just made it to Hogwarts).

There was also some graphical glitch when displaying Hogwarts' castle, but it was only once, alongside with some glitches in the door and stairs (but I'm quite sure these all are related to the game itself since it's very old).


-Had to use emulated desktop (800X600) setting, as was suggested in earlier reports. This at least made using the menu possile, but having the game running on a small part of my screen was rather annoying and unpleasant.

-The mouse's speed was quite abnormal and faster than usual. This can be at least improved via the in-game input settings.

What was not tested

Didn't test the whole game

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Game was playable, but I'm giving a bronze rating because of the small resolution. For such game I would recommend to use Windows, at least until the menu issue will be fixed (if possible)
