Ahh the name is so good, I love it! This was such a fun puzzle to wrap my head around. Early on it seemed beyond me to predict, but I kept going at it, and I eventually managed to complete each puzzle, and feel very accomplished with how far I got in endless mode. Good game!!

Nice game :D I also started from the lonely knight against pawns idea...

Thanks for playing it! The knight's distinctive  movement is really compelling and attractive! When I thought about all the ways I could approach a "chess game," this immediately leaped out at me.

Exactly! Knight moves have always attracted me, and the idea of using them as a central game mechanic has been in my mind for quite long...
