Amazon’s GameCircle which so happens to be the “rival”, so to speak, of Apple’s Game Center, happened to be on the receiving end of a major upgrade earlier today. This particular upgrade saw the expansion of GameCircle to the entire slew of Android-powered devices, which is extremely far from where it was in the beginning. Back in the day, the GameCircle service only supported the Kindle Fire, hence it is nice to hear about today’s upgrade adding conflict resolution to its tricks of the trade, in addition to offering support for syncing progress, achievements and leaderboard data between devices.
The new updates would allow customers’ game data to be automatically synchornized across numerous devices, never mind if they happen to be offline temporarily. Developers will then be able to turn their attention on using such data without having to persist with it. Early adopters of GameCircle at the time of launch include Imangi Studios (Temple Run), Spry Fox (Triple Town), and GameHouse (Doodle Jump, Collapse).
