Hi Alissonsalin,

You can use saveUserScore method to save the leaderboard. Use currentTimeMills to find the current time during the beginning and end of the game. The result will be time in milliseconds. If you want you can further convert it into seconds or minutes and save that using saveUserScore.

You can use the following code snippet for saving your user's score:


ScoreBoardService scoreBoardService = App42API.buildScoreBoardService();
GameService gameService = App42API.buildGameService();
gameService.createGame("Your Game Name", "Your Game Descrption");
long startTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
long endTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
long timeDiff = (endTime-startTime);
Game game = scoreBoardService.saveUserScore("Your Game Name", "Alissonsalin", new BigDecimal(timeDiff));
System.out.println("Game Response is :"+ game);
// Naresh

Thank you! One more question: The best score is the lowest time. How can I get top 10 lowest score?
Get top 10 score time
Hi Alissonsalin,
To get the top 10 lowest scores, you need to call getTopNRankers API.
And before that you need to set other meta headers by calling setOtherMetaHeaders API on scoreboardService and in those meta headers, you have to put orderByAscending as key and score as value.

For more details see our API Docs (
It works! Thank you!
