  • I liked this entry, thanks for participating! I appreciate the mention of the "tiny" mouse click area on a square! It definitely is an entry that has plenty of room to grow. I definitely encourage you to put some additional time into this if you can. Huzzah to see more Dragon Ruby. Thanks for participating and hope you had fun!
  • The chess mechanic is interesting, but the strategy associated with Chess is lost on the larger, more wide open spaces that don't really restrict anyone's movement in any real way. Still it's nice to see innovation. More features and a better use of maps could make this really compelling.
  • The chess moveset is an interesting idea that can certainly be built on. However as it stands the game is a bit lacking - needs more enemies, and maybe some sort of loot or progression to make it more of a game.
