Looking for Chess Variant Puzzle games

If you have seen the games that come as a side challenge to the Chessmaster Nintendo DS games then you know exactly what I am looking for. (odd that you find no such variants on any other chessmaster game)

Another game is Minechess (4 out of 5 for concept) which is a combo of minesweeper and chess, this also illistrates what I am looking for...

Please suggest to me any games that are like this and your rating on it

A great concept for a puzzle game but unlikely to help strengthen your Chess gameplay.
