Featured Roguelike: ChessRogue

ChessRogue is what it says on the tin - a roguelike game modeled on chess. As white king you need to capture enemy pieces to gain their abilities. It is quite unforgiving, because a single misstep means game over. Your character is limited at first but becomes progressively able to execute more strategies. Early on it is good to wait for enemy pieces to come to you so that most of them will have restricted movement in tight spaces but later ChessRogue is better played very aggressively. Against pieces of many movement patterns meeting the fastest of them and capturing most before others arrive will let you avoid being cornered.

Extended mode features additional types of pieces to capture and some preset levels.
