Billy the Wizard: Rocket Broomstick Racing is a racing game from English developer/publisher Data Design Interactive. It has been released for the PlayStation 2 and the PC. The Wii rendition will be released on the week of August 12 to August 18.
In the game, the player races alongside other wizards in the Broomstick Grand Prix. The game involves the player blasting opponents out of the sky with their magical powers, and collecting extra ammunition as they skim tree-tops and plunge under low bridges and archways.
The game has over 40 stages spread across 5 levels, with 8 playable characters to choose from.
UK magazine n-Revolution rated the game 2.4/10, citing as problems unresponsive Wii controls and a general feeling that the developers were cashing in on the Harry Potter phenomenon by releasing a similarly themed game. British Magazine N-Gamer gave the game 10% and was featured as "Guff of the month"
