We have made an online game very similar to Pacman. The idea is to award top scorers with various incentives and prizes. But at the end of the day, we need to keep hackers at bay so that our game app is secured and let the genuine top scorers to enjoy playing it for prizes and incentives.
What we want to prevent from happening is not to allow hackers to find out or detect how to win this maze-based game (similar to Pacman) for incentives and prizes. By securing I meant is to secure the Algorithm of the game, making it tougher enough for the hacker to prevent from finding out ways to win it every time.
So how can we keep the malicious hackers away?
Looking for credible, tried and tested information. Thanks
