Lego Creator: Harry Potter is a construction and management simulation video game based on the Harry Potter story series and the Lego brand of building blocks. It was developed by Superscape and published by Lego Software. In the game, the player can build Harry Potter-themed worlds and complete challenges.

Lego Creator was first introduced in 1998, then came Lego Creator: Knights' Kingdom in 2000, and then Lego Creator: Harry Potter in 2001. This game was considered to be related to the film version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and allowed the player to play as the different characters and go into four general areas, plus 5 extra areas. The area of Inside Hogwarts school has four place-able extra rooms to reach other areas, including Professor Snape's Potions Class and the Forbidden Corridor. The game includes many features that give the player a lot of creative ability. Features include taking control of minifigures and animals, driving the Hogwarts Express, changing the weather from rain to snow to night to day, casting spells and flying on broomsticks, and creating your own minifigures and models with classical and Harry Potter style Lego faces, bodies, cloaks and even wands; while the workshop contains castle pieces, to extras, to standard pieces.

Creator: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the sequel to Lego Creator: Harry Potter, specifically focusing on the second book and movie. It was the first game to be co-published by Electronic Arts upon release, and the first to lack the "Lego" branding at the beginning of the game name.

Features[edit]

While the sequel contains many of the same features as the debut game, more additional features were added to enhance the player's creative ability, including more models, more worlds, and more minifigures. Certain characters or animals can reach certain areas of the game. Completing tasks will unlock different worlds and models the player can use in their own world. These tasks are tutorials, which show the user all the features of the program.
