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
    to point to your server.
  2. Edit
    to match your desired port.
  3. This depends on whether you A. want flash fall back or B. don't want it.


sudo privbind -u username node  server.js
allows for listening on port 843 without running the game as sudo.


node server.js
just starts the game but the flash fall back won't work.
