Cross platform games?

I'm fairly certain that the answer to my question will be a big no, but I have to ask anyways because you guys tend to surprise me alot! I was curious if anyone knew of any games that I could play against my wife while I am at work and she is at home. She mentioned a scrabble like game for the Iphone that allows you to play against friends or strangers. I thought something like this might be cool for us (doesn't have to be scrabble, chess would actually be totally awesome!). The problem is that I have a TP2 and she has an Iphone.

Re: Cross platform games?

UGH!! And you guys can still live in the same house together??

Lol, just joking =)

Anyway, as far as I know, the answer is yes and no. I know of a few MMO (massively multiplayer online) games for windows mobile, but that's a cross between pocket pc's and well... desktop pc's. It's not what you're looking for, but it shows that it's possible.

Maybe someone else can point you to a good one.

It had to be the iPhone gah..most cross paltform solutions like flash, java and etc dont work on iPhone..so your only option as far as I can say is to find a Javascript/Ajax multiplayer game and play from the web browser.

I cannot say exactly which games in particular because I don't have an iPhone to test on whether it will be compatible so try googling for:

javascript multiplayer games

or

ajax multiplayer games

and try them out 1 by 1 and hope somethign works...

Yes, but if I can annoy her while I am away from home by beating her at Chess or something similar, that's a bonus!
