Game Center lets friends — and soon-to-be-friends — in on the action. Invite someone to join, then get a game going. Or go up against people you don’t know, from anywhere around the world, in a multiplayer game. It’s your world. Everyone else is just playing in it.
Game Center is compatible with these devices.
iPod touch 2nd generation or later
iPhone 3GS or later
Gamers rejoice. Game Center is here.
The new Game Center app lets you expand your social gaming network. Exponentially. All you need to play is an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad running iOS 4.2.* Just tap the Game Center icon on your Home screen, sign in with your Apple ID, and you’re good to go. You can create a different nickname that will be visible to friends and the gaming community. Assign several email addresses to the Game Center app, making it easy for more friends to find you. Download any games you see by tapping links in Game Center. Games can be started right in the Game Center app. And once you sign in to Game Center, you’re always connected. Until you decide to sign out.
Friends. Soon to be opponents.
Bring your friends along for the ride. Or match. Or mission. Once you’re signed in to the Game Center app, you can invite someone by sending a friend request using their nickname or email address. Your friends show up in a separate Friends list in Game Center. Tap on friends’ names, and you can see what games they’ve been playing. You can also check out pending friend requests.
Leaderboards and achievements.
Score some bragging rights.
Check out the leaderboards and see how your score ranks against your friends, as well as all players of each game. You can also compare game achievements with your friends. Look for leaderboards and achievements in the Game Center app and in each individual game. And let the smack talk begin.
Meet your match.
Say you want to get a multiplayer game going. Auto-match will find your friends if they happen to be looking for an auto-match, too. Otherwise, it will set you up with a soon-to-be-friend from anywhere around the world. You can also choose to invite friends and have auto-match fill the number of players needed for a game.
