NEOs, or 'near earth objects' are an emergent threat to all life on this planet. Blast off into space and destroy them all to preserve life as we know it back on Earth!


To control N.E.O - Near Earth Objects, simply choose your input device; XBox 360 controller, mouse or touchscreen are supported -- and if you want to kick it oldschool with your computer's keyboard, remap the controls how you want them.

If you're using a mouse or a touchscreen, click/touch a part of the screen to make the ship fire at that location. Keep your finger down to thrust toward that area; but don't go too fast!

Keyboard and controller users will find a classic-styled turn left/right and thrust scheme.

Additional controls

In-game, use the ENTER key to toggle fullscreen and PAUSE to pause/unpause the game. ESCAPE key will ask if you'd like to quit the game: press 'Y' to confirm and any other key to cancel.


This game runs on Node-Webkit, a platform that allows games developed in HTML5 to run standalone without a browser. Some computers don't really like Node-Webkit, so you may wish to try the demo first before buying the game.

If in doubt, the developer can be contacted at: hamslicejxt@gmail.com


If you wish to create a video of this game and monetise it, go hog-wild. You have my permission, I'd love people to see it.


This game has been greenlit on the Steam sales platform. Keys will be offered with purchases of this game on itch.io when it is released on Steam.
