the puzzles are so well designed in this, and I really like the style too. At first I was expecting some of the pieces to chase me, but it was pretty easy to figure out their pattern. (also helps the levels arent too big and restart quickly). Is it possible to destroy every enemy? I was trying at first but after the double rook level couldn't get 3 of them. (1 of those 2 rooks, the queen, and the final bishop)

Thank you! And I think it's possible on every level with the exception of the last level -have been working off and on on an update for a full game that rewards getting all the pieces in the level as a challenge (also one for using less than a set par for moves)
oh my god, this is so nice! my next game would be something like this
maybe this game could neever end like you knew and maybe make it a little pay to win
lol I don't know about that xD but I would like to add a lot more to it! I might make a paid version or something but I wouldn't want to do the pay to win thing
Awesome game,I need lot of thinking and mash click all my possible choice lol.
Tho the only thing make me sad is the last lvl since in all the lvl its was possible to get rid of all chess piece.
meanwhile in last lvl it wasn't possible to get rid the bishop because when you want to land on the black spike its always when black spike retract.(it when there is no spike on the square)
My only solution is to make box come 1 turn early,then it might possible to finish do it,Again good game nonetheless and keep up the good work =)
Thank you!! :D and true -i'm not sure if it's possible on the last level but if not will figure something out to make it possible! :D
I love chess and this game is very good! I wish there was a level select system because I accidentally left the game and came back and it reloaded so I replay and that was kinda annoying.
Thanks! :D And this game was made in a crunch for a short game jam so theres a lot of room for improvement -i'm already working on a full / expanded version of this game with features like saving, level select, way more levels etc
Love the game, but I'm going to have to quit playing, because the RESET function doesn't work. Why not just map to "r"? I got stuck on at least 3 different levels and had to reload the game, and replay the whole game just to get back to where i was.
Only one time did the reset button work, and I have no idea what was different that one time (Chrome).
Great game, but big annoying problem too.
Thank you! and oh no -that sucks! -sorry about that! I haven't had that happen -anyway just updated it with R key for optional restart :D
This game has no right to feel this good to play! :P Super polished, nice job
I wonder if anyone is recording walkthroughs right now...
Wow! Really great, I really enjoyed playing all the levels! I'm going to have to recommend this to a family member who's favourite chess piece is the knight because of the way it moves :)
As a Chess player, this is a really cool idea, and a very fun game. The music is great, too. One problem I'm having, though, is that on the level where the first bishop shows up, you can get softlocked. And yes, I'm aware of the restart button that's usually a bit near the top-right corner of the screen. It's not there for some reason.It usually happens on the right side of the screen. Maybe I'm just dumb and don't know what I'm doing, but I felt like saying something about it, because whenever this happens, I have to reload the entire page, which puts me all the way back at the beginning. Either way, this game is a very creative and fun idea. I haven't even beaten the game yet, and I already really like it. Very cool.
Oh no!! Sorry about that! Thanks for letting me know! Found the problem and just updated it to fix the missing reset button!
The reset button appears to not work, I just got softlocked in exactly the same spot and nothing happens when I click it
Sorry about that -I just tested it and the button worked for me -mind if I ask what browser you were using? Any other details might help too -like was it on a touch screen?
Interesting concept buddy. It was fun to play🎮
Great level of polish but it proabably needs something like a score/medal system to reward players that finish in a lower amount of move
Thank you! I was wanting to do that but was running out of time in the game jam -I'm planning to add something like that soon! :D
This is very polished, I can't believe it's a jam game. Well done!
Fun game and interesting mechanic. You should make a level editor.
I keep dancing and playing the game! Awesome job! Thanks!
Wow, just wow, I've never played chess but this makes me interested in board games/chess in general, amazing game, good graphics, soundtrack, mechanics...
the homestuck vibes...... i feel them
edit: also re: gameplay, I wish there was a way to turn down the screen shaking- it makes me a bit dizzy @~@
This is pretty amazing
Nice gameplay! loved music
this is a very creative idea! love the gameplay too.
Loooooove this game - beat it and still want more!!! ^_^
