This is a good concept. The only other pentagonal variant I know of is one produced by Graeme Neatham, so this is a barely explored field. There are a number of pentagonal tesalations that tile the plane, all of which offer possibilities for unusual piece movements. Thank you for submitting this game.

The concept of using forward/backward irregular pentagons to construct a playing board is excellent. Rather than using a single off-set direction I would be inclined to switch the off-set direction to produce a playing board like this -

It might also be interesting to have left/right pentagons, like this -
