Gigachess is a puzzle board hero defense. With your custom party of Knights, Rooks and Bishops, defend against the relentless waves of enemy Pawns running a blitz for the board's bottom. The seemingly unbreakable formations and constant downward march of your foe transform chess from slow burn to tactical rush in this deeply addictive single-player take on the grandmaster of turn-based strategy.

How long can you survive the pawn onslaught?

  • Endless mode with randomly-generated waves and a choice of 4 difficulty levels for a perpetual Pawn menace (now with persistent gamesaves!)
  • Puzzle Attack mode offering 40+ high-stakes, logic-testing stages to clear
  • Playable Tutorials & Tooltips for a crash course in the mechanical intricacies and insight on demand
  • Strategic Power-ups that block advancing Pawns, plant explosive traps & more!
