Should I use Scoreloop, Open Feint or Agon?

Hi,

I'm going to implement online highscores in Deep soon. I'm trying to decide whether to go for Scoreloop, Open Feint or Agon. So I thought I'd let you guys help me decide. I'd like to hear your opinions.

Thanks!

I like Agon the best but I would get OpenFeint because of chat and obviously more people like it so, yeah. But Agon is awesome too.

Out of those... Open Feint, but Plus+ is my new favourite.

I'd go with Plus+ as well, seems to be the choice of most of the new games.

I don't think Plus+ is an option because as far as I know, there is no support for the Unity engine, which I use.

I like openfeint, the sdk is fairly straightforward to implement, they give you the source files, not precompiled libraries so if something doesn't work the way you want you can change it and they will often help you change it, they have great support, and there are a ton of openfeint users.

Hey guys,

I'm from Scoreloop. Scoreloop supports unity, has player challenges with push notifications, achievements, virtual currency, Facebook integrations and friending etc. Do check us out if you're still considering options www.scoreloop.com

Cheers,

Plus+ is the best for users, but it is apparently harder to implement than the others. It does support Unity though - Skee-Ball and Scarecrow are great examples.

If you're not willing to jump through the hoops necessary to use Plus+, then just go with Open Feint. There is no reason to sign up for an also-ran gaming network this late in the game.
