Christian Montoya helped to design social game hit Draw Something. But tomorrow he'll be launching his new game No More Kings for iOS and Android tomorrow.

It's based on Chess and uses the same rules and pieces, it even takes place on a 8x8 board. However, it's a one player puzzle game with 100 designed levels to beat.

The idea in each level is to take out the opposing King piece. Upon each turn you have to take out an opposing piece, and when you do, you become that piece.

So, if you start out with a Pawn, and end up taking out a Rook, you'll then have a Rook and access to its moves.

No More Kings

You do this until, eventually, you figure out how to take out the King to beat the level.

Each level has a solution so it's your job to work it out. As you'd expect, these solutions will become increasingly complex as you progress.

You can try out the first 50 levels of No More Kings on Montoya's website. We'll let you know once the full game is available to buy.
