Awesome game, but tower and queen looks very similar

Thanks! I changed the queen a bit, just for you :D

(+1)

make the queen a bit taller aswell maybe

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.

Thanks for the feedback! I hope to have some of that in a full post-jam version soon :)

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 :)

Looks like the game works normally on the phone. The only thing is the board is too small. I think you can fix that by making the game show in landscape mode rather than portrait.

this is a simple concept that works really well and it is really fun to play.  Nice job :)

Such a cute game once again ! Love the music as well. Very chill. The mechanic itself is really clever.

Thanks a lot! :)

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!
