ActionChess is free until the next version is released. The next version will have Game Center support, as well as retina display graphics and iOS 4 multitasking. Thanks for downloading!


ActionChess is an exciting action puzzle game mashup that crosses two of the greatest games of all time: Chess and Tetris!

There are several modes to play and unlock. Arcade Mode and Timed Mode are available to start out with, but as you progress you'll gain the ability to play in Specific Piece Mode, where you play with just the Rooks, Pawns, Knights, Bishops, Queens, or even the entire set at random. Each of these feel like an entirely different action puzzle game.

Instructions: Move any of the pieces on the gameboard as you would move the piece in standard chess. Simply drag the piece you want to move onto the piece you want to capture, black or white it makes no difference. You must make a capture, however, in order to move the piece.

Of course you score points for each capture, but if you make a row of all black or all white pieces, the whole row is removed and scored! New pieces show up at the bottom of the screen, and if you let one reach the top, that's game over. If you're doing so well that you run out of pieces on the board, there is an up arrow in the bottom right corner of the screen that will push another row of pieces out onto the board.

This game works great on an iPad!

ActionChess has become my favorite iPhone game, and now that we have a new iPad, I've got a whole new platform to play it on! The iPhone version looks surprisingly good at 2x size on the iPad while I wait for an optimized iPad version to be released.

This update has made the look more crisp, and it also seems to have fixed a bug with the up arrow. I have been blaming that arrow for limiting my score, so now I'll have no excuses.

I am hoping that a future update will add a universal high scores page, although I peeked at a friend's ActionChess score last week and now I'm not so sure that I would make it into the top tier. I'll just have to keep practicing : >
