Description

Martian Chess (used to be Lunar Chess) is a digital recreation of Andrew Looney's classic treehouse / icehouse game now on your iPad/iPhone!

A fun and challenging board game,similar to traditional chess, with a smaller board and much quicker game play. In Martian Chess, pieces on your side of the game board are always yours.

This is a two or four player (iPad only) game, any of which can be players or computers of varying difficulty locally or challenge someone to a two-player game over the internet! Network play works over wifi, 3g, or edge.

It's a game of attrition and position, of challenge and strategy.

If you play too offensively, your opponent can come right back at you with the piece you attacked him, for once you take their piece, your piece becomes theirs! But if you're too defensive your opponent can corner you. You must find the right balance.
