This is similar to Brickchucking Chess except that pieces aren't allowed to move sideways either. Also, in Brickchucking Chess, when a pawn promotes, it is oriented to move in the other direction. In this game, a pawn that promotes is forever stuck, and would be useless except for it's ability to check backwards.
