Here on the Dropbox developer relations team, one of our favorite things to do with the Dropbox Datastore API is to play games. Hot on the heels of our runaway successes Dropbox 2048 and Lucky Shamrock, today we're releasing Click the Box, a really simple game that demonstrates how the Datastore API can be used to sync game state.

You can play the game in your browser at Try opening it in multiple browser tabs to see it sync in real-time!
