Yes, it is possible - I know of at least a couple of iOS games which cannot be played without the player having an internet connection.

Also: welcome to the forums Wink

May have another question ?

is there another code for that to store the game into the cloud server and which cloud service that may support iOS ?

what kind of tools may useful for game development on iphone and what kind of programming language I need to use it?

Okay, I've split this thread so redrath2 doesn't get spammed with spurious reply notification emails...

Can you clarify your question? As of iOS 5, Apple's own iCloud APIs let you develop apps which save data to the cloud - I believe Infinity Blade 2 uses those APIs - but I'm not sure that's what you're looking for...

There is an overview of iOS game development here.

Thanks for give me another Thread for it..

Actually I just start research about cloud computing. So if my question is not clearly enough, I'm apologize.

So, iOS itself have another cloud service for them. Basically, I just need to create the game then I store my game into iCloud or there is another way?

Thanks for the feedback..
