Hello all

You may remember my previous posts here! and here! i showed how to develop simple cross platform game .
Now i like to show you how to develop super simple real time multiplayer card game , which is also cross platform.
The game is War card game for 2 players.
Although the tutorial is very basic and simple what you going to learn can be used as foundation to more complex games.
Using only free open source tools . which every one can effort.

For the server stack im using Java Netty , it is light,fast,Asynchronous network server.
The java code im using is NOT doing the “900 layers of abstractions”. it is simple almost procedural programming.
For the networking protocol im using Web Sockets.
For the client side game im using Cocos2d-x the HTML5 engine for the web and the JavaScript API for desktop and iOS.
