Description

Knight Moves puts a twist on the old chess game and puts you in charge of a knight that has to leap his way trough increasingly complicated chessboards filled with enemies, hazards, power-ups and treasures. Your knight moves in the traditional L-shaped patterns, which means you'll have to constantly be planning ahead, and quickly too, because the knight is in constant motion, and you only have a few seconds to decide its next move.

The game is played in a 3-D board, but the graphics consist mostly of 2-D scaled sprites and the chessboards themselves are irregular affairs with walls, pits, etc.
