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.

i need more levels.

Very interesting way of turning chess into a puzzle game! Always fun to see what people can do with chess!
I was especially enjoying level 24,the difficulty was finally ramping up and it had me stumped for a good ten minutes. You must've spent a while making that one, which is a shame, because I wish there were at least ten more of those.
Very good job!

great concept, good puzzle game, that's a bout it

Loved it and hope for more. Only problem I found is that I just beat all 24 levels and the only medals that unlocked were the first two. Still, it's a really great puzzle game.

Played all 24 levels, over the course of a few days. So if the game has me coming back, the concept is done well. I look forward to the challenge of part 2, if developed.
