The game has been likened to being a combination of Pokemon Go and Harry Potter with an augmented reality twist, but developers say it is much more than that. From a 2016 article at Engadget:

okar's dream is to create the Harry Potter Go game that fans have been clamoring for since Pokémon Go busted down the doors of the mainstream, mobile AR experience. Maguss has been in development for two years, and it currently occupies an original world of magic. Much like Pokémon Go, it features digital creatures to find scattered around real-world maps, plus it has quests, crafting, the ability to duel other players, factions to join, spells to learn, potions to make and ingredients to hunt down. And the team is building an actual wand peripheral that connects to the app via Bluetooth, allowing players to flick and swish just like they've always dreamed of.

You can learn more about the game on the Maguss site.
