Auto Chess

It's in the DOTA2 Arcade. It's free.

I've put about 9 hours into this game. I'm still not sure if it's good or not.

I think maybe that it invented a new genre which is good, without it itself being particularly good.

It's basically a PvP tower defense game with unique hero characters from DOTA2.

The system to connect you to a game is awful. The games themselves take too long, and the controls are mushy as fuck. You do not have enough time to shop and equip. It takes a real long time to lose, if you don't abandon the game. The matchmaking seems to keep the Knights and Pawns segregated from the rest of the players, but I'm not sure I see any further matchmaking rating in the server pop despite the wiki telling me otherwise (a Knight ranked player usually wins my games). The itemization is completely non-intuitive and very poorly explained.

Still playing, though. I like the tension of seeing my little dudes almost die but pull out the win anyway.

I'm really hoping this spawns imitators who do it right.
