Hello guys, this is Node-Man, our entry into the 2013 Node Knockout competition. We are a team of two that embarked on a mission to bring multiplayer to Pac-Man. As a fun twist, we decided to call it "Node-Man', and chose to represent the antagonists as the ghosts of dead web technologies.
The game supports up to 5 players: Node-Man and his four rival ghosts. Gameplay is simple; if you've played Pac-Man before then you already know how to play. Each character is controlled by the arrow keys or alternatively using WASD.
This application is light-hearted and fun and is intended for the demographic of people that love and play Pac-Man on a daily basis but are left unfulfilled by the lack of multiplayer game mechanics.
Our market research indicated that there is a large audience of individuals who bear an insatiable need for multiplayer Pac-Man. As problem solvers, our team stepped up to that challenge to finally bring them satisfaction.
To get started, just drop in to the application and start playing. The game is endless, and players can drop in and out at any time. If the game is full, spectators will be queued until a player slot becomes available. If Node-Man loses all his lives, he's pushed back into the spectator queue, so everyone gets a turn!
Thanks for watching. A link to play is in the description.
