Makning multiplayer game

I thinking off making a game for iphone/ipad. I want to make a multiplayer game where you can challenge a friend over the net. Is is possible to make a game like that with Game Salad? Its going to be a quiz game with a twist.

    All of those features will be able to be added to GS once the native code engine switch is complete, but they will not be in day one.

    @Bearlost Games similar to words with friends and all of those! Basically, nothing in real time.

    Edit: turn based is the word I was looking for
  • BearlostBearlost Posts: 6Member
    So a turned based quiz game would be possible i guess?
