Description

Nearly everyone knows about Harry Potter, the little child wizard from the books by J.K. Rowling. In this action adventure game, you are Harry Potter and play through the story of the first book (and the movie), "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone". You arrive at the Hogwarts School of Wizardry where you will learn how to cast spells, create potions and how to fly the broomstick. When you are ready, you'll have to find and retrieve the Sorcerer's Stone which is in danger - the "he-who-must-not-be named" wants it too.

Trivia

Title

In the UK, this game is called Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as opposite to and the Sorcerer's Stone. This was done in respect to the author of the books, J. K. Rowling, who is British (and the original book was called and the Philosopher's Stone). They did that with the movie, too.
