An action game which loosely follows the rules of checkers. Made in 9 hours for the Triple Trijam: https://itch.io/jam/triple-trijam-2020

(3 hours for the first build, 3h30min for the second build and 2h30min for the final build)


You can play the 2 first builds here:

Controls:

  • WASD/ZQSD/IJKL/Arrow keys: move
  • Spacebar/shift/X: attack
  • R: restart room (if you're stuck)


You may only attack the enemies diagonally and if there is no wall behind them. They will try to do the same. Try to chain them for better combos!

Version 3 features:

  • 10 levels
  • Scoring system
  • Style system (dynamic difficulty)
  • 3 powerups (push blocks, freeze enemies, attack horizontally/vertically)
  • Dynamic music (4 tracks)
  • sound effects
  • Title screen

Combining the classic game of Checkers with a more action orientated game just gelled really well. It can take a play or two to figure everything out, since there is a learning curve. No matter what, this game is fun, The music flows well with the gameplay.

thanks for playing :)

Another interesting concept! I definitely do like me some stylish games, and this was an interesting fusion where it felt good to lure out enemies to build a super-combo-chain finish on them. UI design is a bit drab though and made it difficult to track things with text overlapping power bars and such. At the moment the game does feel a bit too quick and can be beaten by just spamming and such, but I love the concept and would love to see this fleshed out more with a tighter design. Music was cool as well: as usual I like how it escalates by building on itself more and more as you progress.

thanks again for the review :)
Eventually you'll have reviewed my entire catalog lul.
Also yeh this would benefit by some quality of life improvements, but I only had 9 hours.

will this make me good at checkers?
and I think this game needs a score system, because I forgot my.
but this is still a great game and I hope you make a sequel one day.
I love seeing video game base off of tabletop games.

adriendittrick responds:

yeah 9 hours wasnt enough to implement a hi score system sorry!
