Glitchy Checkers

A futuristic take on
the classic board game.
For the iPad.

Hi, my name is Maciej Konieczny. I'm a software creator from Warsaw, Poland, and I made this game. I hope you'll like it. :)

Glitchy Checkers is a futuristic checkers game for the iPad. It requires two players to sit together, so it's a great way to spend time with your friends, family, and other very special people.

The game features the classic rules of Russian draughts but delivers them in a completely new, minimalist sci-fi aesthetic: with no text or tutorials, just sharp geometric shapes that flicker, shatter, explode, and glitch.

You can download Glitchy Checkers on the App Store.

If you are interested in how I made this game, check out development posts on my blog. Here I will only mention that I wrote Glitchy Checkers in the Swift programming language, using the SpriteKit framework. Also, a fun fact: I created all the graphics in code — there are no images downloaded with the game apart from the icon.
