Description

Chess Housers is a puzzle game from Spain. The player guides a disembodied glove with the ARROW keys through a isometric labyrinth with a checkerboard pattern on the floor and lots of chess pieces placed. The glove has to push (ARROW keys + SPACE bar) this pieces to clear its way to the exit. The pieces move with the same pattern that they have on chess: pawns move forward, horses have an "L"-shaped movement, and so on. The glove can be killed if it is in their path. The chess pieces are set up in small rooms as a series puzzles that must be solved. Other objects in the rooms include:

Boulders that must be smashed by the horse pieces, if they're in the way;

► Transparent boxes, usually found stopping the movement of a piece, that can be destroyed by the glove;

Pyramid teleporters to transport the glove to other parts of the maze;

Maps show the maze layout to the player;

► Temporary save points in the shape of a glove stuck with a knife;

► A cross is the maze exit.

The game has temporary save points that disappear once the player exits to DOS. There is a password system: the code is displayed after the completion of each maze.
