This is called knight's game, because white only has a horse then can jump 2x as the normal horse, so he jumps like a normal horse only plays 2x. Black has its normal pieces.

I don't get it.

white start with a horse, black starts with normal pieces, white plays 2 times, then black plays. Not hard?? But when white plays the first move with the horse it is already check mate.

You could say that the point is to show that tempo is more important than material. The one Knight that can move twice is enough to either checkmate the king or eat up all the material on the side that can only move once.

That and it's kinda funny.

An actual good example to show tempo is more important than material:
