A first attempt at a pico8 chess engine.
Move generation is currently unoptimised so AI is fairly slow and doesn't have a great depth search.
-- Controls --
Use arrow keys to select a piece
Use z to confirm
Use x to disable AI
Second game though. The first attempt I had a major advantage but then both me and the ai screwed up so it was a near victory. This works pretty well, but it occasionally seems to give the player the ability to move the ai pieces. In the one above, I noticed the ai doesn't know how to break defenses, so just slowly moving forward with an unyielding wall where nothing is unprotected totally destroys it.
