Math-Race

Simple knockout.js / websockets / node.js real-time game

This is a very simple real-time game created with node.js, knockout.js and socket.io.

Goal

Try to be faster than the other players in solving simple mathematical equations.

Every game has a limited time (defaults to one minute), so hurry up and beat the others.

Game score history is saved across games.

No database required (this is just a quick demo)

Enjoy!

Installation

Install dependencies with npm:

npm install

Configuration

Edit config file to reflect where are you running the server from (so the browser renders the proper link to socket.io resources)

    exports.values={
        version: '0.0.1',
        server : {
            production : {
                real_time_server : {port: 8090, host: '127.0.0.1'}
            }
        }
        ,
        game : {
            duration: 60 //seconds
        }
    }

Run the server

node server.js 8090
