Knight Moves is a puzzle video game released for Windows in 1995.

Development[edit]

It is based on a similar game, Knight Move, which was created by Alexey Pajitnov, the inventor of Tetris; however, he had no part in the creation of this game.

Gameplay[edit]

The player controls a chess knight, and must navigate around various hazards and enemies to pick up power-ups and treasure.[1]

Reception[edit]

Next Generation reviewed the PC version of the game, rating it two stars out of five, and stated that "Coupled with a set of frustratingly difficult levels early on, Knight Moves almost seems made to disappoint puzzle gamers."[2]
