Deflection chess with lasers puzzle game releases for both Linux and Windows PC. Thanks to the efforts of developer Coreffect Interactive. Which is coming in with solid Positive reviews on Steam.

Coreffect Interactive releases its first title: Deflection. Which is basically Chess with Lasers. While it may look like a puzzle game, it is, however, a player versus player mind bending game. So just like chess, where the main goal of a match is to destroy enemy pieces and the rival King. But now you have to bounce your laser off mirrors. All while going through portals and activating other pieces.

With a variety of pieces in Deflection. Since each has different advantages, abilities, and weaknesses. Use the one move you are allowed per turn to use strategy and bring yourself closer to victory. At the end of every turn, you must shoot your laser. So be careful not to hit one of your own pieces.

Some Deflection pieces can even be controlled by both players. Which also adds another layer of fun and strategy.

​Take advantage of pieces with abilities like:

  • The Disruptor, which, when activated by the laser. Due to disable and weaken nearby pieces, rendering them useless.
  • The Tesla Tower can eliminate a random nearby piece with an electric beam. This is regardless of its color.
  • The Spike, which, when shot from any side, will shoot four lasers in all directions before destroying itself.
