Nice idea. But in current state it lacks challenge. Maybe block pieces that moved once or make it like in Match-3 games - your move needs to end up with matching. Good luck!

Yeah, I was debating whether or not to require matches to be made in a single move. One thing I like about the current system is that you can jump a knight across the board to get it where you need it. That is, it gives more of a chess feeling being able to string together moves. I'm hoping that putting in various obstacles like immovable pieces and barricades will make the game more difficult. I also thought about adding a time-penalty for any moves that do not result in a match to discourage randomly moving pieces around.

Really cool idea! The different pieces movements make it really neat.

What a fun idea. But yea, unfortunately it doesn't fit to the theme.

It's sad the game does not adhere to the theme of the Jam, because this is a really creative take on bejeweled mechanics
