Bump, set, spike! Oh wait, wrong sport.
The day has finally come for us avid badminton fans. We finally have a game that truly speaks to our elite group of racquet sport enthusiasts. And what a game too! Seriously, this is a good game that is fun to jump right into while also having some solid longevity.
Badminton League is a game about, wait for it, badminton. You control your badminton player in 1 on 1 matches against your opponent, doing you best to beat them with a mix of skill, power and trickery.
The controls are very simple, use the controls on the left to move your player and the controls on the right to hit the birdie short, long or smash the hell out of it. Despite being simple in concept the controls are actually pretty difficult to master. It can take a while to get the timing right for simple shots and you will look like a fool the first few times you try to smash one against your foe. Once you connect though you get to experience that sweet, sweet feeling that only a badminton player ever experiences (okay, maybe a volleyball or tennis player too).
You jump right into player vs player matches and as you progress you can take it up a notch by participating in tournaments. Winning matches gives you coins which you can use to unlock new equipment and experience points that help you develop your player from a badminton schmo to a badminton pro! The sky is the limit for this game, definitely worth checking out whether you are a badminton fan or just bored and in need of a new app game.
