The argument of Harry Potter Wizards Unite is that the player must help recover artifacts and magical animals that can highlight the existence of wizards and witches before Muggles. These objects and creatures were spread all over the world by an official of the magic ministry. The player will catch all these objects and thus the magic world will be kept secret. But the adventure does not end there. As the player advances in the plot, he can become an Auror, elaborate potions and visit different places such as fortresses and inns.
Some of the artifacts and creatures that the player will find are part of the original Harry Potter saga. For example, you can find the Quidditch cup and the Gryffindor sword and see one of Harry's friends: Rubeus Hagrid.
The creators of the game expect it to become a global trend and reach the popularity of Pokemon Go in 2016. However, the game has already received criticism and warnings. Based on the experience of Pokemon, detractors have pointed out that it can be dangerous for players. According to The Times, people could enter dangerous areas and be robbed by unscrupulous people who see them with their cell phones in their hands. In addition, without realizing it, players could invade private property, cross motorways without due precaution and forget that they are playing in real streets.
