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.

Nice game, it also kinda taught me chess, since I know now how each piece moves. I never played chess, nor did I care to learn. But now that I aced this game and all its levels, I know at least how it works. Thanks for that!
I like all kinds of puzzle games, but those that teach actual real life stuff ( in this case, chess) are my favorite and deserve more recognition!

This game is really original! A chess puzzle game

pretty difficult, but this is a great game concept! i like it

just done all of them to 21, which looks terrifying, some of them beforehand were also quite difficult. I like the game

Great game
