itsmy Launches Location-based Leaderboards

Mobile web gaming network itsmy has launched location-based leaderboards via a social API. The feature is available for all GPS-equipped phones.

Once a game is started it will show the feature called ‘Turn on Location Battle’. The player just has to choose the location, check in and join the game. The first mobile browser game to implement the feature is itsmy Quiz Challenge, a friend battle game where you have to know everything about your Facebook friends.

“Location is a new social layer which makes mobile gaming more fun,” says itsmy CTO, Jukka Saarelainen. “Instead of having one high score in a game you now can have hundreds of them all over your favourite places.”
