Moveless Chess - Need Beta Testers!

Hi, there! Beavl here from Argentina (we've made Faif, Kapsula and some more iOS games).

Well, we are wrapping up our new game. It's called Moveless Chess.


Moveless Chess features an Action Point System based on relative chess piece value. You cannot move your pieces. But you can turn them into new ones! Every transformation costs Action Points, and every level has a limited amount of those. So be clever! And there's more. AI play by the rules, unaware of your powers. Use this for your advantage!

(BTW, making levels using tactics such us forks, discovered attacks, pins, deflections and more is such a nice exercise!)

We are aiming for a mid-October launch, and we've decided to make some beta testing for Android (here) and iOS. For iOS, we are using Testflight, so if you are interested in betatesting the game, just comment this thread with your Testflight email or PM us.

The beta version of Moveless Chess has 32 levels. Final release will have 64, more config options and some surprises! After releasing the final version, we'll be updating it with new levels every week or so. We'll go for a freemium model, with video rewards and interstitials. We'll also have a 0.99 IAP for removing timer (chess has timer, hasn't it?) and ads.

NOTE
Moveless Chess was originally made for last ludum dare. Theme for this edition was "shapeshifting" and Moveless Chess finished 3rd in innovation! (out of more than 1.1K entries from all around the world).

NOTE 2
We've made some tutorial gifs to understand game rules. You can check'em here!

I do love chess and I was very good at it I'd never lost a game but I haven't played chess in a good few years now. I'm not too keen on puzzle games but the chess element may make it more enjoyable for me.

I played chess at tournament when I was going to school, actually I play againts Fritz 13. Looks promising, similar to chess game like Bughouse then you can put piece at board etc.
