Chess Miner v1.1 Description:

is a strategic game in which you must predict chess pieces' moves and place bombs where you think they might next land.

Chess Miner is intended to improve one's concentration, memory, spatial imagination, and the skill to discover regularities. It helps consolidate one's knowledge about chess pieces and their possible motions about the chessboard.

Only white pieces are involved in Chess Miner. The computer makes moves with them. You are the miner, and only mines are at your disposal. Your move consists in the placing of a mine. The computer then moves a piece along a certain route. Moves by player and computer alternate. Your goal is to undermine all white pieces by means of the mines. You have to discover what route each piece follows and then place mines on each square of that route.

Unless undermined, a piece always travels along a route twice. Lap number one "outlines" the circuit; lap number two serves to prompt the human player to mark the whole extent of the route by mines, starting on the square where the piece is currently standing. A piece is regarded to have been undermined, and vanishes from the board, if on each square of its current route it steps on a mine. As soon as you have eliminated the last piece, you win. If you have failed to undermine a piece in due time, the chessman changes the route. As soon as any piece has reached the end of its third route for the second time, you lose.

The number of possible positions is practically infinite, therefore the possibility of a position being encountered twice is in the vicinity of zero. For each task you have coped with, the program gives you a certain number of points. The higher the difficulty level, the more points you get.
