Knight Move - A puzzle-platform game using Knight



This is an action-puzzle game.
You control a knight piece of the chess which can move in an L shape on the 8×4 board.
Each square becomes a hole by landing on 3 times and points are obtained.
Higher points are obtained by making holes continuously.
When you capture a heart in mode A or 3~6 hearts in mode B, all holes are recovered and the level increases.
The level affects the knight’s speed but doesn’t the points.
If the knight goes into a hole, the game is over.
Get a million points!

Nice :wink: Goog game idea

This is a very addictive game for me. Do you think so, too?
How many points can you get? :1st_place_medal:

Thank you!
I was particular about the animations of objects. :chess_pawn:

Actually this is a port of the NES version. :video_game:


Was on holiday have yet to try it👍
So could give it a go now - very addictive. I am trying to turn every tile😆

Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, it may look like a pegasus because of wings.
It’s important to show a catchy image on the title screen. :slightly_smiling_face:


This is really fun, your games are pretty addictive!

Thank you! How many points did you get? :horse:

@obono my first try I only made something like 68 as my panic reflexes were trying to avoid creating holes, I went straight for the hearts. The second go around I did a lot better, somewhere over 300 before I got pulled away haha. (I know, I got a lot better to do)

Very cool game!

EDIT: oh, you can make it jump faster :open_mouth: I need to try in a real arduboy

@obono I get like 400 pts average.

@msanatan @TheWaferMan
It is difficult to control the knight because of its unique move at first.
Keep going!


Thank you for playing. You are so patience. :slightly_smiling_face:

I play a lot of chess, so I understand how to solidly move the knight.

Very impressed, great game as usual!

Though isn’t it difficult to control the knight by D-pad instead of your hand directly?

Nice playing!
I think you should prioritize making holes than capturing hearts.
Because the level doesn’t affects the points.

Ye, a little, but after a few tries you get the hang of it.

You just need hand-eye coordination but just on the D-pad instead of your actual hand.
