Harry Potter Walkthrough Year 4, Level 5 – The Black Lake

Published on July 22nd, 2010

You’re onto Harry’s second task at the and you’ll spend all of this level dealing with squids and mermaids. Check out this guide for a safe passageway to the final level of Year 4 at Hogwarts.

Watch out for squids they can be a real pain, you’re better off targeting and zapping them as soon as you see them appear. This level is also very dark. Turn your brightness up and you’ll then be able to see the secret tunnels clearly. Harry and Cedric play through this level together and on a couple of occasions you need them to go off in different directions so you’ll have to switch characters. This section plays like a 2D platformer but the levels do have depth as well. At the beginning just follow the pathway created by the studs. Watch out for tunnels buried at the bottom of the lake, you’ll need to shoot at them so you can swim through. There are two tunnels near to each other and you need the characters to go down different ones. If you take the back one, then Cedric should take the front. Cast your Wingardium Leviosa spell on the tentacles blocking the path and Cedric will do the same.

Move forward until you can go no further and you need to levitate the two LEGO parts to construct a fish on the platform above. During the next section you need to split up again, take the lower path and Cedric will take the upper. Shoot the weeds, then switch to Harry to Wingardium Leviosa. When you get to the crab levitate it onto the platform underneath the boulder. Switch to Cedric and shoot the eye of the squid. Choose the Lumos spell when the squid squirts ink and if you head upwards you’ll find a pearl. Bring it down to the lower section to the right and place it in the Oyster shell.

Finally, in the last section you need to rescue the students. Look in the background and from left to right you’ll see three students attached to chains. You need to find the end of the chain and free it. There are also a couple of tunnels allowing you to move backwards and forwards, which you’ll need to do to find the chains. Mermaids will hassle you so see them off first. Use Lumos to get rid of the weeds to free the chain for the left hand student. You’ll have to switch the purple spell to free the chain. Then blast away at the rocks surrounding the tunnel entrance, you’ll be able to get to the back of the area. Here, levitate the purple sphere onto the scales. If you look at where the students are now hanging you can target the middle part of the chain with a spell and set them free. You can free the last student by going back through the tunnel and heading to the far right where you can just use Wingardium Leviosa on the chain.

Next Level – Year 4, Level 6: The Dark Lord Returns
