Without any login/authentication requirement, this is super-easy. We did something similar for one of our sims/games on http://www.simbucket.com. All you need is a AJAX POST request with the data to a php script running on the server. It is super-easy to spoof, with virtually no security, but we weren't really worried about that for our purposes because we could just reset the high score if someone decided to mess with the system.
If you are worried about making sure the high scores aren't tampered with, then you will need to do some sort of user authentication.
Thanks - I'm not worried about security - it's just to win a bottle of wine for a bit of Christmas fun.
I had a tutorial from Construct2, but it doesn't seem to work on 3, and I'm on a mac, so cannot install 2.
Did you manage to get it to work with V3?
