Multi-player Pac-Man! Play as Node-Man and quickly eat all the nodes or play as a dead web technology to try and defeat Node-Man!
We have re-imagined Pac-Man to incorporate multiplayer gameplay. Players join to play as either Node-Man, the hero of our game, or conversely one of the antagonists represented by four dead web technologies: Python, Perl, Ruby, and PHP.
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.
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!
Movement is controlled with the arrow keys (or WASD if you prefer). If you're Node-Man, try and gobble up all the little nodes. Super-nodes give you the ability to defeat the dead web technologies, but they'll respawn soon enough! Tested in Chrome. Please use Chrome. Firefox seems to work fine too. Does not work in Lynx
