Chess have never been this fun with Knight Watch, a puzzle game combining chess mechanics with arcade gameplay. As a lone knight only able to move in L-Shape (like in chess), player's goal is to clear levels by capturing all enemies. During his journey, players will meet units inspired by chess pieces(rook, bishop, queen…) and tricky obstacles to overcome through 200 levels and 3 games modes. The Knight Watch also has a skin system allowing to change characters and background visuals at will, with more than 40 themes available !


The Knight Watch goal is to be a great game on both Apple Watch and iPhone ! We also want to appeal to chess players and new gamers alike. In order to do this, we decided to create a game that supports all playing behaviors : You can enjoy the game and complete a level in few seconds or take several minutes to plan the perfect path. Focus on getting the fastest time possible or unlock new skins. Compete alone, in leaderboards with friends or against the whole world. We also believe Apple Watch has a great potential for interesting games ! That's why the wearable version of The Knight Watch has unique levels, mechanics and game modes.


  • Simple to understand but hard to master with deep gameplay that both chess users and new players can enjoy
  • 100 unique levels for iPhone and +100 exclusives levels for the Apple Watch
  • 40+ amazing themes to unlock.
