Time Based Reward Systems


Retention is an important part of creating a successful application, and reward systems are one way to entice your users to visit your game frequently. While you can create reward systems that are local on the device, there are potential issues with this strategy: players can change the device time and cheat the system to earn new rewards. But rejoice! With the introduction of the Network behaviors in GameSalad, we can now create systems that will look to online servers for data instead of the local device. Using the free app analytics system, Appformative, we can easily create reward systems that cannot be cheated; all without having to set up our own servers. The course will include:

-Setting up the necessary information on Appformative
-Creating the reward system in GameSalad Creator
-Becoming more familiar with the Network behaviors
-Best practices on when to call and retrieve information from online servers
