Pawnbarian is a puzzle roguelike. Use chess moves to control your hero on a tiny dungeon board and learn how to outmaneuver enemies with various traits!

Features

  • Use a deck of chess pieces to hack and slash through hordes of monsters.
  • Pick up the basics instantly if you're familiar with chess, or learn in minutes if you aren't.
  • Carefully plan your moves to navigate challenging, emergent tactical situations.
  • Spend treasure to upgrade your cards with additional powers.
  • Blitz through quick 15-30 minute runs - or die trying.
  • Take on the infinite post-run Gauntlet to see how long you can survive.
  • Pick from 3 characters to conquer 3 dungeons, all requiring an unique approach.
  • Progress through Chains, a series of extra difficulty modifiers.

Not Features

  • No deep and varied builds - Pawnbarian plays like a puzzle game first and foremost.
  • Few external rewards - no permanent upgrades, and not much that needs unlocking.
