imagine if there could be modes where you use the other pieces, would be fun

Thanks! I tried some, and honestly rook and queen are the only ones that work well enough. Knight could probably be balanced but it's hard.
NICE !!!!!!!!!! love the concept. I am trying to improve my chess skills and these game somehow offers new perspectives.
Now that's a 360 no-scope!
Love the idea, but having the King and capturing it or even having it in check doing nothing confused me.
excellent man, it's fun to see how far you take cards/chess in all these games
You can't kill the king th
Awesome game, but tower and queen looks very similar
Thanks! I changed the queen a bit, just for you :D
Hey, you took my advice about the pawns. Nice!
Awesome! I love chess. This game is really cool to play. I love de sound, the graphics and the gameplay. Yet sometimes I confuse the Queen with a Tower.
I like it. Simple and unexpected
good game, it gets harder and harder the more mistakes you make
Pretty clever game, I like it. But a bit dull ATM, maybe add some color like red/blue pieces. And I would add some more sound effects, like chimes that go higher and higher for every capture, maybe a whiplash at gameover when your piece is captured. Other than that excellent little game.
i loved it!
Very good. I just came back from a chess game over the board and this is really nice to play. Smooth sliding and good gameplay. One thing, can you make this available on mobile please?
Soon(TM) probably. I'm seeing a lot of request so I'll definitely do it.
Any other features you think would be cool to add if I make a post-jam mobile version?
I think i would like it if the pawns worked as real pawns. You know, only farwards and promotion. My guess is that you had the pawns like that but decided it's better if they take to any diagonal direction. My opinion is that they should act like real pawns.
I ported the game as is for now, I'm probably gonna be adding a lot of stuff. You can grab the port here https://raindrinker.itch.io/rook-android?secret=vPRRPvT1PpVbSQEUK6x6sE8sL5k Shhh it's a secret
Your feedback has been quite useful so any feedback on the android port and ideas on what to add are super welcome :)
this is a simple concept that works really well and it is really fun to play. Nice job :)
Nice, works really well.
Such a cute game once again ! Love the music as well. Very chill. The mechanic itself is really clever.
I do not like chess.
I really like this game.
Thanks for making it!
I'm not really big on chess either but its well-known mechanics are a good communication tool for games :)
Glad you liked it!
This game is great
Your games are always so good!
BTW. R U gonna enter the next LD?
Well, that was dumb...
Simple but addictive!
