OverviewOverview

Chezzle is similar to chess, but here you only have one piece that changes to whatever you take. It features a relaxing soundscape and encouraging messages, and allows you to get the grips of the rules of chess at your own pace while also creating a novel experience similar to Not Chess that's enjoyable as a standalone game of strategy.

There is an infinite number of levels, that are procedurally generated. In each one, you are given one piece, and are faced by several others. It's your job to take every piece on the board. When you claim a piece, which you must do each move, you become that piece, inheriting its moves and appearance. To ensure you don't get into a position where it's impossible to take all the pieces, you must think ahead, deciding which is the best piece to take next and how you'll take all the pieces.

It's a relaxing and calming play experience and offers a fresh twist on the centuries-old classic that can help you practice your skills, engage your brain and wind down.

As you control when your piece moves, reaction times aren't tested and you can play the game at your own pace. You can also undo moves for a second attempt at a level if you end up stuck.

While the text throughout the game is large and high contrast, the game's visuals use a subdued, pastel tone which can make the colours somewhat low-contrast.
