ShepHertz – A Cloud Ecosystem provider for Apps announces that their multiplayer gaming network, AppWarp, now supports Cocos2D-X SDK. This integration will enable Cocos2D-X game developers to develop connected real-time multiplayer games.

AppWarp Cocos2D-X SDK is a multi-platform port written in C++, originally based on the popular Cocos2d game engine for iPhone. AppWarp’s Cocos2D SDK is widely used and appreciated in the community. It can be used with iOS, Android, Marmalade and BlackBerry 10 platforms. It will allow Cocos2d-x developers to quickly build engaging cross-platform games.

Our solution is accommodated in such a way that developers don’t have to write any server side code as we provide unique features such as:

  • Persistent Room property management
  • Match making based on the number of users and properties
  • Client-side arbitration
  • Out of the box turn based gaming APIs

This SDK allows Cocos2D-X games to connect, subscribe and manage server side rooms, lobbies and users. It also has match making feature which allows the developers to easily support quick play modes, add and update properties of rooms, and reduces the amount of time spent scanning for the desired game rooms. Match making can be done on the properties of the rooms as well on the number of users in a room.
