Startup Gaming company head quartered in Germany.
The Client wanted to publish a multi-player game which can be played on streets. Since mobility was the key component of the game so supporting major platforms and device resolutions was a challenge. Also the client was not sure how to track the location of the player while in the game.
We decided to build this game for both the platforms – iOS and Android so that majority of mobile devices are covered. In order to track the user location in real-time, we used Global Positioning System (GPS) which can provide accuracy to pinpoint their location within 10 feet. The mobile apps are fetching and pushing game data to remote server through web services (APIs).
iOS, iPhone, Android, RESTful APIs, XML, Web Services
