Chess Mix is a turn-based tactical game set in the REAL world of Chess, where they party all day long and hang out and chill and generally have a great time.
Meet lots of strange, cool friends who have their own weird strengths and weaknesses. Unlock new songs that give you cool passive powers and build them into powerful playlists! Dance, kiss, eat pizza, and do other stuff too!!
How to play
You're moving pieces around the board, using abilities (on the little cards on the bottom) and gaining as many Cool Points as you can before the day is over. There are currently about a dozen or so different pieces in the game, and each party locale has its own special rules and features.
Tap on a unit to find out where it can move to. Then you can click one of the destinations to move it there.
When a unit is selected, you can also see its abilities on the bottom of the screen. If you use an ability, you have to wait a few turns before you can use it again - this is called a "cooldown". Wait a few more turns and then try again.
Songs and Playlists
You start with 2 songs unlocked, but as you gain more stars, more will be unlocked. Each song does a different thing passively as you play (you can click the Karaoke machine to remind you just what the song's a-doin').
Probably some songs go good with some kinds of units or something, but you probably will also just have your favorite songs. Try stuff out!
Good luck! <3
