Developing a gambling game

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon May 27, 2013 12:02 pm

Hello,

I was keeping eye on Construct 2 since it was released. Time is unstoppable and software getting better.

I want to develop simple gambling game with unique idea. My question is how safe is it?

I know that Construct 2 is a great software for making games like Angry Birds. But I want to make anything to play using real money.

Thank you for any advice,
Alex

Define "safe".

A game is only as safe as you make it. There are so many ways of monetizing C2 Games (CocoonJS, Clay.IO, Google Merchant PhoneGap, the list goes on etc.)

Safe means that using basic integrated C2 functions I can make a game, where people cannot open it using any basic hackers software, add 1m into their account and ask for a withdrawal.

Better look somewhere else then, as HTML is absolutely not made for this kind of stuff.

What you're looking for is a solid back-end like PHP or Python.

Once you're done with that, you can look into doing the front-end (the graphical layers and the clicky stuff) in HTML

@alexgold87 you need to use back end server to validate the auth, also do some tricks like triple validation, the client generates number, the server validates if is from engine, not user injection and using hash like MD5 is checked.


Otherwise, if the number it's injected and no generated number from server, he gets banned.

Exactly, all security will have to be handled by a combination of Back end server code and also encrypting the traffic to the user with HTTPS so that the packets cannot be easily opened or tampered with.

Construct 2 builds games in javascript and HTML5 which has no intrinsic security of its own. The security is provided by the server and any encryption methodology you choose to use.
