Chess Jam: Rooky Moves

“Rooky Moves” by 8BitLlama.

“You are the kingdom’s new rookie rook recruit. Determined, you decide to depart on an adventure to establish your honor. Are you skilled enough to slide through the pesky pawns, precarious pitfalls, and perplexing puzzles in your path?”

Even though “Rooky Moves” just uses the chess board and some of the figures as some kind of artistic tribute to the jam’s theme, it is a fun puzzle game. What I especially like about it is the fact that it allows the player to transform hostile elements to helpful ones, and that sometimes the purposefully supporting items have no use whatsoever. For example, a key can be of good use to open up blocked paths, but sometimes these paths just send you right into the void. >>PLAY
