Checkmate is inspired by the classic game of Chess, but plays out significantly different. In Checkmate, you not only move your pieces, but also create buildings, each with their own strenghts and weaknesses. These buildings are used to lay deadly traps, launch large boulders, cast strange spells and even to spawn new pieces for your team! The building mechanic makes sure you, and your opponent, stay on edge at all times, creating fun moments for everyone to enjoy.
Starting out with a randomly generated board, the experience will always be fresh. Anything can happen and there are no “winning strategies”. Instead, you will have to use your brain in order to win from the computer and your friends online… However! One wrong move does not mean fatality; It’s only a step backwards and the game will ensure that you can recover from any such set-backs, provided you do so correctly. It’s a battle until the end, where the first moves are equally important as the next, and the match is not decided until the last move.
