A Knight's Move is a puzzle game where you have to move your knight across a board to a target square, using the same movements as a knight in chess. Pawns may block your way, while enemy bishops, castles, knights and queen may try to stop you.

Get from the starting position to the target in the shortest possible number of moves. Score stars based on the moves taken. If you need help, take a one star penalty to show all possible moves. If you really get stuck, after several tries the Cheat button allows you to see a solution.

18 game packs plus a tutorial - over 450 puzzles included in the app - nothing to unlock and no ads!

Great for teaching the basic chess movement rules, or refreshing your knowledge. But if you don't actually want to play chess, this is just a fun puzzle game.

Choose your preferred combination of board and chess pieces.

Great tool for teaching my 5 year old daughter chess

My daughter loves playing chess, but still has some trouble remembering how knights move. We practice using some drills on a real board, but this app is a great tool that makes it even more fun for her. Thanks to the developer for making this!

...what is suppose to do without any clitches, and there is a lot of material to cover. The puzzles range from very easy to quite challenging. Great interface, as well. Kudos to the developer(s)! Make more chessware!!
