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.
