A one (or two) player Losing Chess game. The first player who cannot move, wins; and if you are able to take a piece, you must.

Losing Chess looks like its namesake, and the pieces have the same movements, but the point is to get rid of your pieces as quickly as possible. Its other names include the formal: Anti-Chess; the descriptive: Suicide Chess; and the mathematical: Co-Chess.

In play, it is rather like a cross between Chess and Draughts (Checkers). The key to winning is to force your opponent to take piece after piece. But remember, any pawn of yours which reaches the opposite end will become a queen, and then you're in trouble.

Games are quick, and three difficulty modes are included (with Tricky being really quite tricky to complete).

    In most version you get to pick when promoted. Auto promotes to queen. Also crashes from time to time.

    It uses only part of my s3 screen, there could be some improvements of rules, like autoqueening on/off, but anyway it's very cool.
