In Chessarama, the players will be able to enjoy a world of premium minimalist games, unlock collectibles and compete against each other by climbing the leaderboard. The reimagined chess game scenarios include cultivating a farmyard, fighting a dragon and fighting as a legendary Ronin in feudal Japan.
Prepare to reimagine chess as you never have before, with eight single-player variations of the classic board game that will force veteran chess aficionados to rewire their brains while also training new players to think like a chess master!
The Developer Walkthrough sees game designer Luis Júnior and game & UX designer Ana Carolina provide an overview of how Chessarama’s Lady Ronin game works. This feudal Japan-set variation of chess tasks players with guiding Lady Ronin to assassinate the enemy Shogun. Lady Ronin is an immortal character who moves like a Queen, but she can’t slay a unit that’s being guarded by another piece. Instead, she can only push it back. In order to access the enemy, Shogun, you’ll have to face off against enemy Bishops, Rooks, and Queens.
You’ll also get a sneak peek at Farm Life, where you play as a chess Knight who must cultivate the tiles of their garden to grow crops; Soccer Chess, where you must position your pieces in pursuit of kicking the ball into the goal; and Dragon Slayer, wherein players must move a pawn to the end of the board where it can slay a mighty dragon, though the dragon attacks the board after every turn, obliterating any unprotected piece. Try all these and several more original chess-inspired puzzle games in Chessarama!
