I’m working on building a multiplayer mobile game. I’d ideally like to utilize Apple’s Game Center service so that I don’t have to set up my own server that creates matches.
I’ve found Cordova plugins that support parts of Game Center, such as achievements, leaderboards, etc. but not matchmaking (which I think is one of the most important aspects of game center…).
Has anyone else built an ionic app with multiplayer / matchmaking functionality, specifically with Game Center? What are my options? Is there anyway to set up matchmaking through Game Center that doesn’t involve me learning Objective C/Swift/building a new Cordova plugin or having to set up something like a node server that handles match making? Preferably I’d like to focus on building the game’s UX and UI and not the infrastructure.
