Multiplayer gaming: iPhone
Exit Games has announced that its multiplayer gaming service, Neutron, is now compatible with the iPhone. The new technology allows game developers to integrate online multiplayer social applications with the iPhone. Neutron also aids cross-platform development between the iPhone and other mobile platforms, PCs and gaming systems. The platform supports tournament, real-time and turn-based multiplayer environments, and offers buddy-lists, with text and voice chat, leader-boards, player profiles and more.
Neutron sees the iPhone as the next major development platform for online gaming.
"Neutron's support of this new and innovative mobile device will ensure that iPhone game developers have a means to take advantage of its wireless connectivity and add social gaming features," Christof Wegmann, CTO of Exit Games said.
Neutron offers hosting in the US and Europe and offers software development kits for the iPhone as well as other mobile devices, Flash, and gaming systems. Fees are seat-license based, and determined by contacting the company.
