Laser Chess is a classic chess game with lasers and mirrored pieces. This game is an implementation of the Advanced Laser Chess with custom boards (including classic laser chess) coming soon.
Directions for using the game:
Move by selecting a piece and choosing where it moves. Cancel move by deselecting.
Change direction by dragging in any given direction. Cancel by changing direction back to original direction.
Touch & hold down a laser or a stunner to fire. (Hold as long as necessary to observe beam bounces)

We tried to make the game as quick as it can be, without english words (with the exception of the sounds), and based on the reference Laser Chess implementation. Please look for updates and custom levels once it is out and played by expert players. www.laserchess.org. 23 years of fun.
Note: Laser Chass is for two player game to play on the iPad device.
What's New in Version 1.1
This version fixes the following usability issues discovered on iPad devices:
1- Orientation Jitter when the device is held flat or rotated slowly.
2- Pieces being too easy to accidentally touch-turn when they only a move is intended.
Additionally it corrects the following visual problem:
1- Missing beam segment when a beam reflects 90 degree left from a triangular shape. (does not effect game play)
And also corrects the following incorrect game play situations discovered during game play:
1- Beam passes thru splitter when hit from behind.
2- Stunned lasers and stunners being able to turn or fire.
3- Stunned stunners' mirrors functioning.
4- Stunner not being stunned when directly next to and directly activating a bomb.
Great remake of MikeDuppong's Amiga original!
Could be better
For free, its great. If the game were polished up a bit and got rid of the awful sounds, I'd easily pay for this.
Can't tell what to do with it
No instructions, no rules, no input except You can't do that. Not bothering with the website to find out how to play this user-unfriendly game. Bears no resemblance to actual chess, in that it seems impossible to make a move. Deleted.
