Game Show Network already had a fantastic game in Swipe Hype, but they wanted to make it easy for players to view leaderboards, compare to their friends, and share the fun they were having with Swipe Hype. They needed a solution that was quick to implement, scalable, and low-maintenance for them. Kinvey fit the bill perfectly.
Kinvey manages the backend, meaning GSN could easily add the leaderboard and sharing functionality without having to worry about how to scale or maintain servers. Swipe Hype uses Kinvey’s built-in user management to save high scores in the Data Store, and compare to friends and other players with social features via Business Logic.
