Ludum Dare 48: Deeper and deeper
April 26, 2021
In chess, the pawns are the first to fall for their king. They are allowed to move forwards only one square at a time, ever closer towards their doom. But what if a pawn could rewrite the rules? What if a pawn could choose its fate? Undertake a journey to hell as a pawn with such an unholy power.
Choose one of three random chess moves each turn. Click all of the elevator buttons to go deeper. Kill an enemy hell-pawn at the same time as clicking a button to get a bonus move. Bonus moves are very important for clearing later levels, so use them wisely.
