Pros: It has a lot of features, from Mongo typed DB, to downloadable content, event customization, analytics and more. Besides is auto-scalable and you are charged based on Monthly Active users. It also have backedn code versioning capabilities and a very robust tool to test backend scripts without a frontend.

Out of the box have some basic needs covered like teams/clans, leaderboards, multiple currencies, virtual goods management and achievements.

Cons: Its a little bit expensive, but there are some indie plans. Integration is easy but as it is almost fully customizable it needs some extra work for very specific features that as a developer you may need.

Overall: I've used it in a couple of companies and both were happy with the overall service, and it allowed both companies do a lot of backend features, from device silent login, player data persistant, to clans and leaderboards, as well as sending and receiving gifts, or challenges.

Pros: All the features it offers. You can find whatever thing you need in order to make your game great. Like leaderboards, save system, login/registration, analytics, a/b testing, segments. And a ton of things I'm pretty sure I haven't used yet.

Also the testing feature is super useful, you can test whatever feature you are developing directly on gamesparks dashboard, before implementing it in the production project.

Cons: That it can get pretty expensive; so the game should have a really good monetization plan in order to get the money you pay for the backend, if not, the payment can even kill your game. So I wouldn't suggest it for starters.

Overall: Gamesparks is perfect for the multiplayer game we have at the company I work for, it gave us the solution for all the features we wanted to fulfill, we have a data save system, players registration, a chat system (with item exchange), etc., there is no feature we wanted to implement in our game that gamesparks can't do.

Pros: GameSparks is a very complete platform for games. The main feature that we tried to use for several months was hosted multiplayer game. It had an easy script language that enabled us to quickly deploy our prototype for gamers to test. It had several tutorials that sped up our development. Also,their customer support is really good, offering real answers as opposed to premade answers.

Cons: The problem for us is that GameSparks hosted servers are only hosted in US and EU. Since we were based in latin america, the lag was a big problem even for developing, so we had to give up on this solution. But for how easy it was to setup the product, I recommend you give it a try to see if it fits your needs
