Chessformer is a challenging puzzle platformer where your movements are confined to the chess piece you're given. Use your chess pieces' unique abilities to navigate through each stage and reach the king.
How to Play
Chess piece movements
Chessformer utilizes the movement principles of chess pieces to overcome various challenges on a 2D grid. That means rooks move only in straight lines; bishops only move diagonally, and so on. The difference is, you're moving sideways, so moving your piece up the board also causes it to fall down.
Chessformer gives you an easy introduction to how the game works, with the first few levels being quite simple. However, the difficulty quickly increases. You'll have to get your problem-solving cap on and think creatively to progress through the levels.
