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

There are three game modes available in this, the "lite" edition of ActionChess. You can play in Timed Mode, or Specific Piece Mode, where you choose to play with the whole chess set, or just the bishops!

Instructions: You move any of the pieces on the gameboard using standard chess moves. Simply drag the piece you want to move onto the piece you want to capture. You have to capture a piece to move a piece. Score points for each capture, or make rows of all black or all white to score a whole row at once! The pieces continually push up from the bottom of the screen, and the game is over when you let one reach the top. The game gets faster with each level, but when you want to go even faster than that, just press the up arrow to push more pieces out onto the board.

** Features of ActionChess **
The "paid" version of ActionChess adds an Arcade Mode, which moves at a slower pace, (and where you can play for hours without losing). In Arcade Mode, you can unlock the ability to play Specific Piece Mode with all of the different piece types. You'll be surprised at how playing with each of the different pieces, Rooks, Pawns, Knights, Bishops, Queens, each feel like an entirely different game.

** Future Plans for ActionChess **
...more game modes!
...more unlockables!
...more statistics!
