Love your visual style, very great reference to chess! Also, was very fun and challenging to play. Great job :)

Wow, super impressed by this one! The design is fantastic, the introduction of mechanics is great too. Sticks to the Mario formula of introducing in a safe way, then a not safe way, and then challenges your mastery with a spin on the formula. That queen is a MONSTER. 

I loved this game a lot, played it all the way through to the end. Amazing work.

Glad you noticed the Mario formula :DDD 
I try to apply it in every game I make! It's so satisfying to hear that Hahahaah!

My friend, who did the art, focused a lot on making the queen the most ferocious ( but funny ) character x)

Btw,  our main character loves your profile pic Ahahahahah!

I really love how you introduce new mechanics. There are a good enough number of levels and you managed to explore the game's idea really well! The game doesn't feel like it had been done in a short amount of time. Artwork and sounds are great too! Good job!

Best game that I've played on this jam so far, I really love the twist and how you used the chess pieces. Amazing entry, congrats to the whole team.

Really interesting use of a classic game to create something really unique. Great game!

Great game dude, the design is amazing (loved the nipples) and the puzzles got smart and challenging pretty fast. The only thing I had problems with was depth perception, maybe distinguishing in some way the top of one block from the side of the ones behind it would help with that. Something like a gradient shadow down the side of the blocks.. but I really am nitpicking at this point, this is truly a great entry. 5/5 design.

Really cool idea and great art, I wonder what it would look like with some of the other pieces.

Really good puzzle game, I'm reminded of that Knight Puzzle you sometimes see in adventure games.

I love it. Really cool idea for a game, moreover, superb realisation make it even better. I think this game should be released. And I think, it can be great on mobile platforms. Well done!

It's very addictive to play (no wonder it doesn't have exit button XD ). Feels really polished with all the movement animations. I like the graphics a lot as well. Great job!

Thanks!

Your game felt really polished too! I've enjoyed it a lot and rated it :)

Awesome! Thank you so much!

Fantastic game! Really polished and fun gameplay! It has a great soundtrack and art and the puzzles are really well designed! Great work!

Submitted(+1)

So this game was really fun, I played it till the end! Seemed really polished, nice levels with increasing difficulty, cool music, menus, etc. The art also looks great! The only problem I had is I don't see the connection to the theme, unless I'm missing something, the use of the theme is You only control 1 chess piece? 
Aside from the theme issue, it's a great game! Congrats :)

Developer

Thanks for the kind words! The theme is expressed in the fact that you control only one piece, and that you have only one mechanic: the movement. Thanks for the feedback!
