Knights is an interesting puzzle game that will challenge you for hours.

The object of the puzzle is to move four knight pieces from one side of the board to the other, but all of the spaces on the board are occupied by other pieces except for one.

You must move the other pieces out of the way by using their classic Chess movement restrictions in order to make room for the knights to move across the board to the other side. Knights is a great example of using pre-exsisting mechanics to create an entirely new and fun game!

If you like Chess or puzzle games, then you will love Knights. Click or tap on the app store link below to download it.
