Movement and attacking are the basic game mechanics. The movement/attack types, pattern, and range were based on classical chess, but with many addition (evolution) not found on the classical ones. With increasing tier, movement/attack usually also increase in range and/or pattern.

Definitions

  • Move is occupying an empty spot on the field. Moving more than one square away can be blocked by the other (enemy or ally) units.
  • Teleport is very similar to moving. Teleporting is unblockable and does not capture units. The tiles that a unit can teleport to is shown in purple.
  • Attack is capturing an enemy piece, and occupying its spot. Attacking more than one square away can be blocked by the other (enemy or ally) units. Unblockable attack (e.g. Knight's attack) is unaffected by this.
  • Swap is changing place with ally. Unblockable. The tiles are shown in yellow.
