Martian Chess (used to be Lunar Chess) is a digital recreation of Andrew Looney's classic treehouse / icehouse game now on your iPad/iPhone!

A fun and challenging board game, similar to traditional chess, with a smaller board and much quicker game play. In Martian Chess, pieces on your side of the game board are always yours.

This is a two or four player (iPad only) game, any of which can be players or computers of varying difficulty locally or challenge someone to a two-player game over the internet! Network play works over wifi, 3g, or edge.

It's a game of attrition and position, of challenge and strategy.

If you play too offensively, your opponent can come right back at you with the piece you attacked him, for once you take their piece, your piece becomes theirs! But if you're too defensive your opponent can corner you. You must find the right balance.

Great game

I am a huge fan of looney labs games but i was a bit worried about a digital game. I tried this and could not stop playing it. I suggest this game to anyone who is a fan of chess or strategy games. I have not played multi player yet but look forward to it.

5/5 stars

Addicting, lovely in so many ways.

An amazing game, and I love the concept of the Icehouse pieces that spawned this app. The only problems is that the red queens look like anuses(hint hint alternate skins hint hint) and that the rules supposed to prevent stalemate aren't actually enforced.

5/5 stars

Challenging without being annoying

Nice implementation of a fine Loony Labs game. The AI provides a decent challenge without being annoyingly unbeatable at the middle levels. Great way to learn the game before getting a physical set. I'm looking forward to trying the challenge mode.
