Beam Chess is a two-player game of strategy, planning, and blowing stuff up.
How many times have you said to yourself, "Chess is pretty cool, but I sure wish it had LASERS". Well, wait no longer! Beam Chess is here, and it's chock-full of beamy goodness.
You can play with a friend on a single device, or you can play between two devices over a Wi-Fi connection. If you're flying solo, you can practice your mad skills against two levels of AI. There's even a snarky tutorial to walk you through the basics.
Give it a try! After all, lasers make everything better.

A new take on Khet
Great app. It's a lot like Deflexion (now known as Khet) with some signifigant gameplay differences, (beams can "bounce back" and destroy the firing laser for one), but these changes make the game more interesting. The game will sometimes crash when playing the AI, but it's usually during the first couple of moves. Pretty fun, and a great way to kill time.
This is a great implementation of laser chess from 80, way before the board games came out. Needs 2 players but very fun and chalenging. I'm glad it is not modified with all sorts of crazy stuff, like unkillable laser and such. This way once you learn laser chess you can play the same game on computer or iPhone with the same rules.
Beam Chess doesn't work
I couldn't get the app to work past the first turn! Playing against the computer, I can make an initial move, then the computer moves, then it freezes up. The "Resume" game function also doesn't work. And there is no contact info on the developer's website. What a waste of money!
