before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting]: in view of the possibility\s: white knights don’t start\ queen starts \ , to mate with queen from northeast after black-knight captures east pawn [or to mate with bishop\ knight\ queen ], white's qceight starts

A Bohemian twomover. When c5 is guarded 1.. KxN 2. Bb2#, but 1. Qc6? Nxg5! So c5 is guarded from c8 with zugzwang and four model mates 1.. KxN, N~, NxN, Nxg5 2. Bb2#, Nf3#, f4#, Qh8# as well as 1.. Nxc5 2. QxN#. The N-defenses show black correction.Already published in 1909.
