In my previous comment, I overlooked 'powerful in the sense that they threaten to move from every square along their route.' This makes APC quite different and more radical than Spite Chess. It's hard to know yet whether this can actually be played, given the fantastic mobility and vulnerability of the pieces, but it's a very creative idea.
