Hey this is pretty cool.
Any chance of a future endless mode, like how many kings can you capture in a row or something?

Gonna be honest, I tried building something like this, which required generating puzzles automatically, and it was a nightmare to code... I just couldn't come up with an algorithm that would distribute the pieces correctly. So probably not. But, I do have ideas for various game modes in future updates!

This looks good. Is the title a reference to the Pavement song that originally appeared on the Schoolhouse Rocks compilation? Asking because Pavement rules. Either way, looking forward to trying this.

I am all for buying more levels. However, 30 level packs from now you've paid $30. Now, that's all optional & I don't think wrong. I'm curious if there could be a buy now & get all packs in the future. This is not to seem cheap, I am all for premium ad-free nonsense. I also think it's crazy to spend what it would cost to get everything in say, Hearthstonre. Great game, but hundreds of dollars later is absurd, though not to everyone.

The game is really cool so far!!!! I'm really excited about this!!!!

I love this game but it needs more animations that show the actual piece movements. Since chess pieces all behave in a specific way, it would be a great way to actually help those people who have never played chess. If the Dev added in some visual flair, this game would be a solid 5 stars for me.
