You're start screen is messed up...if u play in windowed mode
A downloadable game for Windows
In Checkmate, you play as chess pieces defending your castle from an attack. The goal is simply to survive as long as possible.
As you play, you will level up through the chess pieces, each one coming with a newer and more deadly attack style. Hold down your left or right mouse button to charge up an attack, and release it to destroy your enemies. The Queen and King also have an extra attack move bound to your shift key.
Your attacks have a cooldown, but that cool down will be reset so long as your your attack connects, allowing you to chain multiple attacks together.
