Chessformer is a grid-based puzzle platformer with Chess pieces. Each of the pieces moves as expected, but they fall down after moving and can't move again until they stop falling. The goal in each level is to capture the opposing king, who is lazy and never moves, so don't worry about losing any pieces.

Update 1

Changed timings of medal unlocks to hopefully fix missing unlocks.

Incredible game! Very creative use of the chess pieces. Looks like the only time I will ever promote the pawn to knight

very interesting game


This game is very creative and enjoyable, the puzzles aren't impossible, they are really well made and cool.
The last phase is the best, that was hard and complex, every time I think I made it through, I had something else to do, from there I had to restart the level, again and again

UwU The game is well made and i didn't find any bug or issues

very creative and good game. i didn't like it tho. I LOVED IT
