Smart Moves Alpha

Author Comments

"Smart moves" is a combination of puzzle and turn-based roguelike mechanics. Destroy monsters, open chests!


The hero can attack monsters standing on neighboring square. Avoid being the first at a distance of impact! The hero can't skip turns, but can use level objects - or other monsters - to “skip” the turn.


Every game level is a puzzle with its own logical solution. Our experiments with game mechanics require a good understanding from the player how objects interact with each other in the game world.

I can tell this game probably had a lot of inspiration from crypt of the necro dancer

Fun puzzler! I think the level design is a bit awkward initially: especially with the weird 'guess the right flower route level'. After that, though, the level design really takes off as it starts introducing barrels, spiders, snake pots, spikes and more in very clever and satisfying arrangements! I like the graphics especially as they are well animated, cute, bouncy and very nice to look at.

This is a very good game. Great puzzle element combined with a zelda-like adventure feel. Like it

I really like the concept, the tips helped, but I have a problem with the music as its just generic blues, it didn't feel like something I would remember for a long time.

This is basically Crypt of the Necrodancer without the music
