Players can compete against friends online and use a combination of fast reflexes, teammate assists and magical spells in an effort to score in one of two goals on their opponents. The larger net is worth one point and the smaller net is worth two points, choose your approach and strategy on which one to score on. The main spells consists of Blast to knock the ball out of your opponent’s hands or Blink in order to teleport into position.
“Broomstick is the result of many years of iteration and tweaking and we are nearly there,” said Alex Tintor, Founder of Blue Isles Studios. “We are still pushing hard to improve and perfect the game. We have had a lot of fun designing these worlds for players to enjoy, they serve as a great backdrop for the fast-paced action.”

“Broomstick League is a deceptively simple game,” states Tintor. “At its core, the game is quite simple, but, from that simplicity comes a ton of depth and nuance and that is what we are most excited about. There is so much that players can do with our movement mechanics and physics in the game, and we can’t wait to see what else players will come up with.”
