Review from apppicker.com
"an excellent game that tests your tactical skills in a territorial battle of wits, providing a wildly engaging alternative for Chess players who want a diverse and dynamic game experience.... really scintillate your grey matter..."
Each player has four amazons, which move like chess queens : any number of vacant squares in a straight line -- orthogonally or diagonally. After it moves, an amazon must fire an arrow in the same manner from its landing square (one or more vacant squares orthogonally or diagonally). The square where the arrow lands is then marked to indicate it is blocked . No amazon or arrow may move into or through a blocked square. White moves first, moving one amazon and firing an arrow with that amazon. The players alternate moving, and the player last able to make a move wins.
