When making the WP7 game Photo Challenge we quickly agreed that we needed leaderboards. The problem is that is time consuming to build a scalable high quality leaderboard service tailor made for our game and secondly we would have to pay for server storage for a game that statistically won’t make a dime anyway. This meant that we searched for a ready to use leaderboard service. It wasn’t easy to find. But then a miracle happened. We found the amazing Mogade.com.
Mogade.com is an incredible fit for our game.
To get started you should download the code from Github https://github.com/mogade/mogade-windowsphone and look at the samples there. Furthermore I found this nice blogpost to help me get going http://briansolli.wordpress.com/2011/03/30/online-leaderboard-for-your-wp7-game
In http://www.niedermann.dk/2011/07/26/PhotoChallengeReleased.aspx you can see a screenshot of the graphical look of the leaderboard we came up with in Photo Challenge.
