I am able to advance pawns in the negative (back to my own back rank) direction.

Can you provide the version of Brutal Chess you were using and move sequence to reproduce this bug.
This was tested and it appears only white pawns can move backwards. This should be fixed shortly and a bug fix will be released. Can't believe this has been in here for so long.
This is fixed. Should have a new release out shortly.
