Chess

by svenardo - 7dRTS / Mini LD 44 Entry

Forget about turns, this is real time chess. It's hectic, chaotic and short. The winner is the guy who is able to process everything and cope under stress. Welcome to the new chess experience.

Note about this release.
It's the first public beta. The game is playable, but there's very little intelligence to the computers play, so winning is relatively easy, though not inevitable. Bugs are likely. Refinement is necessary, but hey, I made it. Cheers. Hope you like it, and hope you have fun.

If you find bugs or have suggestions for improvements, please tweet me at @svenardocom on Twitter.

This is basically Kung-fu chess. Nice implementation! Most fun game I have played so far of the entries.

Wow! Hearing the concept and even seeing your Youtube videos didn't sell me on the idea, but that was a ton of fun to play. Great work.

Very intimidating at first, but its really fun. I prefer this over real chess!

Ironic and mystifying. Fun stuff.

Pretty hectic and fun, but hte AI is pretty bad.

Thanks for all the kind words :) I'm working on the AI, something which I think is really fun but also quite challenging.

Very nice! The cooldowns make it much more balanced and strategic than the other game I've seen implementing this idea. The AI is stupid, but presents a good challenge anyway. There seems to be a bug with pawn movement - two pawns can advance into the same square simultaneously, and one of them gets captured.

Wow, this can get really frustrating when you play too defensively and then the AI rushes in and you lose because you overlooked a pawn in all that mess... but it's cool.

interesting, the cool down timer adds to it but the ai is lagging behind so much... does add drama to the basic chess... Would be interesting with better Ai...

Excellent entry. The only thing I could ask for here is a smarter AI.
