Lonely Chess

It's chess. But you only have one piece. You can change the type of your piece from a Pawn (8-Direction movement) to a Knight (L-Shape Movement, jumps enemies) to a Bishop (Moves diagonally)


Click to select a square, click again to move to it. Use keys 1, 2 and 3 to change your piece or click on the button at the bottom. Move on top of an enemy to take it. Take all enemy's to continue. Taking a King will take all enemies.

PRESS SPACE TO SKIP THE LEVEL IF YOU GET STUCK (it's a bit buggy and the levels are not tested properly)

Yeah, bug. I can't fix it until the jam ends


This is really cool!


I think this is a really fun concept, having to take out an army all turn-based like this. It's fun in execution, too! It's a shame there are still a few bugs. I'm also curious if switching pieces took a move, that could add some risk to make things exciting.
