Achievements and communication
Users can track the gaming progress of friends and share their achievements. Information about trophies and awards of players is also displayed in the profiles. For some games, a cross platform online mode is available. The application contains an integrated chat that supports exchanging text and voice messages.
Instability of the network connection and an insufficiently developed interface led to the unpopularity the service has with the players. For this reason, the developer has announced the end of support for the platform. Despite this, users can still access to play previously purchased games. It is worth noting that online and co-op features are no longer available.
