We've been using Corona for years and are exploring a new 2D-based game that will be multiplayer cross iOS and tvOS.  What multiplayer plugins are available to handle this?  Photon doesn't appear to work across tvOS and also doesn't appear to be regularly updated. 

 

Ultimately just need a good, reliable solution and I'm trying to exhaust all Corona-based options before needing to go over to Unity or native iOS/Swift...

 

Thanks!

Nate

GameSparks has one that I believe works across both. Unfortunately, it is no longer free and it requires the plan above $299/month starter. Too rich for my revenue but wanted to mention it in case you are fully funded. Did you check PlayFab? Also, Develephant had a plugin that was in beta.

 

What would you use if you go native? The Multipeer Framework?

Awesome!  Thank you so much Adrian for your help.  GameSparks and PlayFab both look pretty solid.  Might get in touch with Develephant too...

Not really sure about going native for now...  would rather be able to stick with a solid multiplayer framework on top of Corona if possible.

One of the GameCenter plugins I think supports both iOS and tvOS.

I'll get in touch with Scott to ask a few questions. Thanks!
