Augmented Knight

Chess variant

Chess variant where the knights are extended with a new power. There are four possibilities to choose from.

Jump two fields diagonally
Move one field diagonally
Jump two fields orthogonally (in rook directions)
Move one field orthogonally

Otherwise the rules of chess apply, with the following difference:
