To test various webernet technologies for a future game idea I have, I built a little Asteroids-type multiplayer space game and put it up on the site.

It's just a test game, so nothing especially fancy. Some quick placeholder graphics, no sound yet, etc. I'll probably continue testing/making adjustments over time.

If you're interesting in playing, jump in with some friends! (A TMS account is required to play.)

Sorry, it's multiplayer only! You'll have to drag a friend in.

Thanks for the compliment, and the game!

I'm glad I caught you. That was my first test run with someone other than myself using a second browser window. haha

I need to add a chat function to the game!

Cutting out for the night. Thanks for the games!
Haha, very good.  I "duplicated" my windows and got 5 ships of my own.  Then I killed em.  :p

Made a few adjustments this evening.

- Bombs added.
- Chat added.
- Stats are now stored (only when the other ship isn't the same account).
- Collision detection tweaked.
Just had a encounter with Hannibal in space. Fun little game.

Thanks!

I had a quick game with Robert_E_Lee and whatisthis1 about 10 minutes ago. I realized it was exceptionally difficult to get a kill with a bomb, so I increased their power (they're now an instant kill) and increased the number of bombs per life to seven. I'll probably increase their size a bit soon, too.

There's a one second delay before the bombs arms and they live for five seconds. There's also a one second delay before you can drop another bomb. If anyone has any feedback on adjustments to those values, please let me know!

I'm hoping a few friends and I will have a chance to give it a test tomorrow evening.
Why when you kill yourself with a bomb, you get a death but not a kill?

If you blow yourself up with a bomb, you don't really deserve a kill. A death, sure.

I increased the bomb arm time slightly (from 1 second to 2/3 of a second) and added notifications. I just had a game with two players and realized that being told who died and how was badly needed!

I also made and tested a few substantial backend changes. Everything seems to be working correctly in all my browsers, but please let me know if you run into any trouble!
Bombs blow up when hit with shrapnel (or my own ship). They should also be shootable targets. It is a tough shot but I think it should be possible. Allows someone to practice hitting something without playing bumperships.

Actually, bombs never blew up from shrapnel, but they do now! They also are shootable now, too. You do have to hit the core, though. (Shooting the ring was far too easy.)

I set it so the core can detonate at any time, which means someone can shoot and blow it up the moment you drop it (when you're still in its range).
Should this game still work? It gets stuck on "Preparing for launch..." for me. Using Chrome.

It should still work, yes.

If it isn't any trouble, could you please open your JavaScript console (in Chrome's "Tools" menu) and then visit the space game and click start, then let me know if any errors are reported?

I think I may have found the issue. Please let me know if you're still unable to play!
