There's an Adventure mode where you battle enemies and bigger bosses. Or in Puzzle mode, you aim to break targets with limited bombs. Then in Survival mode, you need to dodge explosions. You can play against friends or the computer in Battle Mode.
Defeat a variety of enemy types and boss fights in Adventure Mode, inspired by the movement patterns of chess pieces. Avoid charging Rooks, don't get shot by Bishops' diagonal projectiles, and watch out for stomping Knights.
With 8 bosses and over 90 stages in Adventure Mode, over 100 target-breaking puzzles in Puzzle Mode and 10 stages of explosion-dodging challenges in Survival Mode there is tonnes to do. Add to that the 12 different arenas in Battle Mode with up to 4 players and this will keep you entertained for days.
It's a game that is fun, approachable and accessible, whether or not you already love chess.
