A downloadable game

Chessplosion is an arcade action puzzle game where you drop chess piece-shaped bombs to create chain reactions and trap opponents. Defeat enemies and bosses in Adventure Mode, break targets with limited bombs in Puzzle Mode, dodge explosions in Survival Mode, or fight friends and AI in Battle Mode. No prior chess knowledge is required, as the optional tutorials will get you up to speed.

  • Defeat a variety of enemy types and boss fights in Adventure Mode, inspired by the movement patterns of chess pieces. Avoid charging Rooks, don't get shot by Bishops' diagonal projectiles, and watch out for stomping Knights.
  • Solve over 140 puzzles in Puzzle Mode, by using limited bombs to cause a chain reaction and break the targets. Make sure you don't get trapped in the blast yourself!
  • Dodge explosions in Survival Mode, where you're pitted against waves of tricky bomb patterns. It starts simple enough, but by the end you'll be dodging bullet hell Queen explosions and solving chess puzzles in real-time.
  • Go head to head in Battle Mode, either fighting against the AI or against your friends in local multiplayer. If you want a change from the regular Free For All Battles or Team Battles, the Tennis Battle mode lets you throw bombs over the center line to create bomb patterns for your opponent to dodge.

Any plans for Linux support? Looks brill.

Thanks! It's something I'm interested in and I plan on looking into it, but I don't want to promise anything until I'm 100% sure that I have the time and means to do it.

No worries. I run GamingOnLinux so would love to cover it. Feel free to message any time for help testing / advice or anything Linux :)
