View Full Version : iPhone Online Multiplayer RTS game possible?

Mar 7, 2009, 08:42 PM
Just a thought, would something like this be possible? I know there are online games out there for iphone and ipod touch on the app store. (ie Chess With Friends) But would it beable to handle the load of a fairly simple RTS game? If so how do these online interactions work or could someone point me to a website/documentation that talks about this sort of thing?

Would be pretty cool having that sort of thing at your fingertips :cool:

I am currently programming an RTS game for the app store and thought of this possibility while doing some brute force coding :D

been and being done. Galcon (full) is a complete 1/4 player rts.
Warfare incorporated has promised complete multiplayer, something they have had in the game on the palm for quite awhile.
So the answer is yes, it's definitely possible. I don't know if it takes some creative coding, but it's possible.
