I've wanted to make a unique chess game for years... i finally got the unique twist i am happy with :) Not for regular chess players, but should be fun for everyone else ;)

... no pawn capture in passing, no castling...

currently computer plays both sides (player movement will be last)

V0.2 pawn movent
V0.3 added knight (horse) movement
V0.4 added bishop movement
V0.5 added rook (castle) movement
v0.6 added king/queen movement
V0.61 hold finger down to SUPER SPEED game
V0.62 added random pawn advancement
V0.7 fixed bug, and added piece movement trackers
V0.80 beginning process to allow a human player...

Arrows button starts autoplay (where you watch the computer play both sides)

When a game is in process, the arrows button will also quit current game...

The PLAY button will eventually let you play the green pieces... but currently you cannot yet play...

A word on the gray circles... these are like warp-tubes for the computer purple pieces, where they can simply move on or off of them, or warp to another warp as their move... for green pieces, these act as blockades, not allowing any green piece to land on them...

Ultimately, purple will be computer and green will be you, the player... eventually... so the warps even out abit for no smart computer moves...

As you can see in v0.4 update, purple has 2 black bishops... in normal chess this isnt possible, but here the one bishop used a warp tube and thats how it got onto a different color... ;)

I think for my next update i will add random pawn upgrade at last rank, then continue adding more piece movements...

I will have to come up to a win scenario... it wont be able to be the same as normal chess...

The hardest part will be adding player control for green pieces...

Piece movement tracker posts beginning position on top and ending position on bottom...

Can I use the Sound FX for the Piece movement in this for my falling Rubble Sound FX?

It does sound like this will be fun when it’s finished.

was8bit 2022-07-23 04:24

Technically speaking, my sound effects are very basic... mostly just settings in the sound editor, and maybe a simple step progression (notes jumping by 2 or 5 usually) or just random (like 10+RND(20)

So you are perfectly welcome to any of my sound effects.... I usually only spend a few seconds making them, no credit needed for the sound effects ;)

Thanks... I “hope” it will be fun ... many times I don’t know until the game is finished... I have lots of games I haven’t posted as they were fun to imagine and make, but we’re just blah when done...

I am a novice at chess, and don’t like playing against a computer that always beats me... I only had one chess game where the computer would play soft and occasionally make a small mistake ... I LOVED playing it as I had at least some chance of winning ...

So my goal here is to make it difficult enough so it isn’t super easy, but even a novice should win...

I plan on skipping traditional chess l, keeping their moves just in case someone is inspired to play real chess... but I am thinking of the win to be total removal of all the other persons pieces....

I will test this really good when done to see if I am happy with it... we shall see :)
