A new HTML5 web portal has solved this problem for mobile developers. The portal was created by Gamorlive, a French strartup. With the web portal, developers can easily create games where users can play each other across all different operating systems.
As described by Dean Takahashi of VentureBeat:
“HTML5 is the new lingua franca for the web, and games written in the format can be made into cross-platform titles with very little duplicate effort. Gamorlive is taking advantage of this feature to enable multiplayer gaming across Windows Phone, iOS (Apple iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone), and Android devices.
Users can play each other even if they are running different operating systems. The drawback of HTML5 is that it is currently slow, but there are ways to get around that problem, and Gamorlive is focused on two-dimensional “classic” games that aren’t as demanding when it comes to performance.”
While this platform could be a web app game-changer, the portal does by no means eliminate the need for testing. In fact, if anything, developers that utilize the Gamorlive platform will need more testing, because there will be a new platform to test for.
