One of the most active categories of APIs added to our web service directory was the games category. 3 of the 10 latest APIs were game or toy-related. There’s a new API for accessing 3D data for World of Warcraft, an API for LEGO information, and an API that gets you information on 11,000 game titles from 20 different game platforms. This means there are now 30 game-related APIs in our directory. Here are more details on each of the latest (have fun):
Cubiculus API: Cubiculus provides large sets of Lego building instruction, lego set reference and other LEGO related informations. Registered users can track their LEGO collections. The Cubiculus API allows developers to integrate Cubiculus LEGO resources with their applications. Example uses include animating your pages with building instruction or LEGO set informations; or create mobile applications for building instruction or LEGO set information.
