An action game which loosely follows the rules of checkers. Made  in 9 hours for the Triple Trijam:

(3 hours for the first build, 3h30min for the second build and 2h30min for the final build)

You can play the 2 first builds here:


  • WASD/ZQSD/IJKL/Arrow keys: move
  • Spacebar/shift/X: attack
  • R: restart room (if you're stuck)

You may only attack the enemies diagonally and if there is no wall behind them. They will try to do the same. Try to chain them for better combos!

  • 10 levels
  • Scoring system
  • Style system
  • 3 powerups (push blocks, freeze enemies, attack horizontally/vertically)

Version 3 features:

  • Dynamic music (4 tracks)
  • sound effects

Also, can anyone beat my hi score?


Cool idea, but the opponents are really unpredictable


I just gave them better telegraphing, please try the latest version :)

Loving the idea, great spin on checkers

Thanks :) I'll update it during the day!

Good concept!

Though I do feel like it's a bit too easy to just spam

it's still in its early stage!

Next build I plan to add incentives towards planning your moves before executing them, and also deterrents to spamming, probably under the form of explosive enemies.
