NodeGame: Shooter

NodeGame: Shooter is an asteroids / geometry wars styled HTML5 multiplayer game. It's written using Node.js and HTML5.

It currently runs natively in Chrome 5+, Safari 5, Firefox 4 Beta and Opera 10.70+. It also runs somewhat in IE9 and older Browsers using a Flash fall back for WebSockets.



  1. Edit client/config.js to point to your server.
  2. Edit server/server.js to match your desired port.
  3. This depends on whether you A. want flash fall back or B. don't want it.
  1. sudo privbind -u username node server.js allows for listening on port 843 without running the game as sudo.
  2. node server.js just starts the game but the flash fall back won't work.
