You must use her four elemental spells to navigate through chess board levels littered with enemies and obstacles.
After completing the main story (a fairly short campaign), there are three bonus levels (kaizo levels) with greater difficulty in selecting the level.
Witchess was created by a small student team in the span of a month and a half. The initial project was actually inspired by Smash Bros, though we took the approach of finding the fun and letting the game design itself. Were amused to see how differently it turned out!
