    Thanks Carina!

    Sure, you can use the demo on your site. Use this link:

  • Comments: Cool game!!Does your CD go on Mac?¿

    Thanks Henrik! Yes, if your CD-ROM drive has a tray (instead of just a slot) it should work. I have tested on several types of Macs (iMac, G3, PowerMac).

    Basically, if the demo works on your Mac then the full version will work also.

  • Comments: I think your game is so cool. I play it about every time I get on the computer.I think it's nice that you only make it for fun not competition. The full version sounds really cool because since I like the internet one alot the full version has more opsions.On the internet broomsticks can I change on to the blue team or change the person to a long-haired blond girl? Sorry my letter took so long and again I love your game Broomsticks. Sincerely, Abby

    Thanks Abby! I'm glad you like the game. In the demo you can only change to the other team by playing against another person (two player). You can change the character by using the ENTER key.

    Thanks Spencer! The best way to make a game is to learn how to program. This can take years but is well worth it. For non-programmers I think there are some "game builder" software packages out there but I do not know much about them. They will definitely not be as flexible as programming.

  • Comments: Your game is great! Could you put sound on the demo? could you make it on a normal disk? More computers are equiped with slot loading drives? Will you come out with another version? Lukas


    I need to keep the demo as small as possible, so I will probably leave the sounds only in the full version as they are now.

    I do have it available on floppy disk. I could also make it on full-size CD, but I think the mini CDs are more fun. Most computers have a CD tray, the slot drives are less common.

    I may make improvements in the future. If so, I will make sure to post about it on this site. Actually, right now I do have a special surprise on the newest CDs! :-)

    True, I will consider it. I take it that you do not have a floppy drive? Do you have an iMac with slot CD-ROM? That's the only computer that I know of that has a slot CD-ROM and no floppy. Some iMacs have trays and some have slots, I wonder which is more common?

  • Comments: cool game. I want to make a game and i just want to know how much money you made of your broomsticks game so far. I think you should make a gameboy version of it. you could make alot of money

    A gameboy version would be good, except that gameboy is a closed platform. This means that only certain companies can develop for it. However, sometime I may port it to an open handheld platform, like the palm-pilot for example.

    it only takes up a couple of megabytes. The best way to put your game on the computer is to learn to program. It takes a while to learn but is well worth it!

Have alot of people ordered the game so far? When did you make this game anyway? Was it easy or hard to make? well gotta go! neat game!! Beth


    I'm glad you like the game. Since my game is not official I cannot call it that. I'm sure you'll love the full version!

    A good number of people have ordered it. I made the game in September and have made some improvements since then. I have been programming for a long time so it wasn't very hard for me to make. It did take some time though, especially the full version.

I hoop that the movie will be cool. Because the books are. If Electronic Arts© continue the game (A rpg) they are making, this would be the best game ever I think... but we never know.

  • Comments: Love the full version. The 3-D game is good. Only 2 problems. One, the control with the mouse is,well,bad. Two, the castle is floating. Other than that, the collision detecters are better than most N64 games, the castle is awesome, and the frame rate is solid.


    I'm glad you are having fun with the full version! You spoiled the surprise, but that is ok. It was bound to get out.

    The 3D game is getting better. I have practically doubled the framerate for certain cards. You can also run it fullscreen.

    Let me how you would like it to change. Would you like key controls in addition to the mouse? How about gameplay ideas?

    Let me clarify the last post to everybody else now that the cat is out of the bag. :-)

    The newest version of the CD comes with a special bonus! It is a very early version of a 3D game. The purpose of this is for testing and for people to give me feedback. The 3D game is not guaranteed to work on your system. In fact, right now the 3D game only runs on Windows and you need a capable graphics card that has support for OpenGL.

So, anyone who, like me, thought Mysterymoney was a little- well, rude- it's not their fault, they didn't do it. Oh by the way paul, how do I put your demo on my site? I'd love to.

    yes, you can turn up the speed but it does make the balls go faster also. Thanks!

(but she doesn't READ anything so she proabably doesn't know about the full version) Also I've heard the C.D. is small so does it still work like a regualar C.D.? I mean does it fit in the disk drive???? Well...that's all and keep going with the games!!!!!!


    yes, it works just like a regular CD. If you open your CD-ROM drive, you will notice that the tray has an inner ring. The mini CD fits right in there.

Can you play it after installed without the cd? i think your price is reasonable you must have put alot of work onto it oh did i mention it was a great game?I expect the full version to be like a magnet to me if the demo is that good.


    it will probably take 2 or 3 days. Yes, after you install it you can play it from your hard-drive without putting the CD in the CD-ROM drive. I'm sure you will love the full version! :-)

    :-) Thanks for the suggestion! I'm sure you will love it!

    Yes, the snitch comes out after some amount of time. You can choose how much time that is, even 0 if you want.

If someone buys the cd and a new update comes i think that you should post a patch on your page so to get the new updates. This way a person wouldn't have to pay for a new game and can just download the updates from your webpage. This would be a great idea ind if confirmed would gurantee my purchase of the game.


    great idea! Yes, I will do that.

    Nope, I haven't forgotten you Brad.

    Excellent! Glad to hear that you have taken up programming, stick with it!

    The Broomsticks game is the same since you got your full version. However, I have added a demo of the Broomsticks 3D game that I am working on.

    The full version has a bunch of improvements over the demo version. However, the full version hasn't changed much at all since I've started selling it. I have added some things to the CD though.

    Here's what's included on the CD:

    • Broomsticks Full version - with all the goodies
    • Broomsticks 3D demo - early demo of 3D game
    • Lasertron - an older Java game I made

    You probably want to start with a simple language like BASIC. You don't need to buy Visual Basic, there are free BASIC compilers out there. Check out this site:

    I'm sorry but I am way too busy to do something like that. I barely have time to work on my site. :-) However, if you have questions I'll be happy to answer them. Just send me an email.

    I don't have qbasic anymore, it's been a while. :-) However, you don't need the original Microsoft qbasic, there are other free shareware compilers out there. Check out the "files" section on that website.

  • Comments: Hi! I got the full version of the game, and I LOVE it. But I was just wondering if you have any tips on how to catch the fast gold ball. (The Snitch.) If it's a game secret or something, I understand, but I was just wondering. Thanks!

    It is pretty hard to catch. The best strategy is to try to corner it in one of the upper corners of the screen.

    I want to avoid HTML in the guestbook because references to images and such will cause this guestbook page to load slower.

  • Comments: Yo Paul, I really liked the way you executed this Quidditch game. Most other programmers use a top-down perspective (like the Mystery Monkey people). Your idea was extremely cool. Minor quibble: I played a few games against my sister and figured out right away that the easiest way to win is just to stay on top of your opponent and squish them whenever they try to fly. You have complete control of the field - I even beat the best computer mode that way. Maybe instead of starting over on the ground players could just get "bounced"? Probably this strategy doesn't work with more than two players.... Wouldn't it be really cool to have a 3D Quidditch game (first-person view, leaning ver your broom i guess) where your mouse pointer directed which way to go? That would combine the best aspects of the top-down view (turns, dodges) with your perspective (dives, climbs). Now THAT would be cool. Signing off, Noodles (no, it's not my real name :-)


    True, however, when you add the black balls into the mix it isn't always easy to stay above the other player constantly. It is especially hard if the field is smaller or there are more than 2 black balls. You can control these parameters in the full version.

    Actually, I am working on a 3D game. An early version of it comes with the CD. And yes, it is very cool! :-) You use the mouse just like you mentioned!

    I'm not sure I understand the question. The game does come on a CD-ROM. It is smaller than a regular CD but it works just the same.

  • Comments: Could you make the 3d version for mac also and when will it come out? Will you put it on cd or an upgrade for your site? and will you post a message when it does? Lukas,


    good question. The engine is portable (OpenGL and SDL). However, I have no experience compiling on Macs. So, my answer is that once I finish the game I will find out how to compile it for Mac users. So yes, it will also be for macs unless I run into unforseen problems.

    Right now I'm not sure how long it will take. I will let you know though.

    I'm planning on including it on the same CD (with Broomsticks), just like I am doing now with the early Windows version. I will also provide a way for people to upgrade if they have an older version.

  • Comments: Your game is totally fabulous! It's just like the real thing! But I have some suggestions. I read parts of the guestbook and it seems like everyone has suggestions for the 3D version. Here are my ideas: The view is from the player's eyes (like "noodle" suggested) and you use the mouse to guide. On the side of the screen is a small map so you can see where everyone else is. You catch, steal, and shoot the Quaffle by clicking the mouse pointer. Of course, you can only steal if you're close enough. Also, there should by all 7 players on a side. Otherwise your game is terrific, I love it! ----Asterix le Gaulois (new to america, sorry for misspellings!)

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've been working mostly on the 3D engine, so there isn't that much gameplay yet. Right now it's only single player. It's more like practice for the real thing. :-)

    Great. Thanks for your order!

    I could put it on a full-sized disk. However, the mini CD is more fun and it is also easier to send by mail.
