The Steps as we know them

The Steps As We Know Them is a nice restricted-movement path-finding puzzle game using some movements as per usual of chess pieces. While it uses the chess pieces and in some ways imitate the standard moving patterns of the pieces, the actual game has very little to do with chess. The game could be given a completely different skin and would still make perfect sense without the chess pieces.

all I know about chess is how each piece moves, and it’s more than enough for the steps as we know them. in fact, you can go in completely blind, as the game will tell you all the relevant rules as they come up.

6 worlds are laid out like chess boards connected with colored areas serving as separate puzzles. each world features a different chess piece, though their movement doesn’t immediately or always match the real thing. for example, the bishop moves like a pawn until it steps on a special purple tile that unleashes its signature diagonal move.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. between the cute enemies, the neat little story line, and the seemingly simple puzzle mechanic of mimicking the limitations of a Chess Knight - I was quite satisfied. My brain got an excellent work out from it. Took me almost 4 hours to beat, but i missed out on whatever happens if you beat it with all the coins - lost them dying in the last level (facepalm) so I have to play again. (not complaining) –- the soundtrack is a good bop too.
