Im developing a pretty simple game but would like to have online "tournament" functionality. So the application would just be the interface but "SOMETHING" on my web server will actually make all the decisions as far as calculating variables.
I know I could make client/server relationchip and have the server listen on a specific port and all that. However, I would rather not have to pay for a dedicated server. Is there another way of
1. sending query
2. retreive decision
3. show decision to user
This needs to be pretty secure so the top scores are not compromised.
