Flexible options for bringing the joy of competition to your players.

Reward your players with real-world prizes

Prizing creates a stronger incentive for players to participate in your competition. The potential to receive physical prizes in addition to digital ones will delight your players and keep them coming back. The best part is that Amazon will manage all prize fulfillment.

Unleash your community with user-generated competitions

Empower your players to create and manage their own competitions. Whether it’s friends and family challenging each other or streamers and influencers engaging their fans, user-generated competitions are a great way to enrich gameplay and community.

Keep competitions fair and fun

We designed GameOn with fun and fair competitions in mind. GameOn gives you the flexibility to define entry requirements, such as geographic location, device type, player skill level, and more. We have also included fraud and abuse detection to protect your competitions from suspicious player activity.

Easily create competitions with the GameOn console

The Amazon GameOn console is an easy-to-use, intuitive interface to ensure that everyone, including your marketing team and community managers, can manage competitions. In your GameOn console, you will be able to create competitions, determine who can participate, assign prizes, and end competitions. We have also made it easy to schedule recurring leaderboards and competitions. Go to the console ».

Types of Competitions

GameOn supports leaderboards, leagues, teams, and multi-round competitions and gives you the flexibility to create custom events, such as local and regional competitions.

Leaderboards

Encourage repeated sessions with leaderboards. GameOn's standard leaderboard format gives players a specific number of “lives” or “tries” to achieve the highest score they can while playing the game. The player with the higest score at the end of the competition will be crowned the winner.

Multi-round competitions

Engage fans longer with multi-round competitions. Top players in each round advance to the next round of gameplay. The winner of the final round becomes the reigning champion.

Leagues

Rather than ranking players based on a score within a game, rank players by the number of wins (or any other metric) over a given time period. Award top players at the end of each league.

Teams

Support competitions with teams, guilds, clans, alliances, and more. A leaderboard with team names and scores will keep the competition going.

GameOn: Powered by AWS

Amazon GameOn is powered by a set of micro-services built on the native AWS platform. You can integrate REST APIs into your game to take advantage of GameOn while maintaining complete control of gameplay and UX for your apps. There are no restrictions on development platform, operating system, surfaces, or screen sizes.
