A brave group-effort by the gentlemen at Ottawa.rb (aka OGRE), spacewar is a legitimate heir to the glory that is the original game you likely played on an xt or more ancient beast of a machine.


For the latest stable version:

sudo gem install spacewar

Or from source:

git clone git://
cd spacewar
rake install



Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
