The idea you are thinking, not exactly because you can also win by enemy having a bare king.

Adding check/mate rules and making impossible to capture the king would help to save this game or not?

Chess pieces are just too maneuverable for multiple captures in one turn. It might be a better game (at least it would be a game) if only one or two captures were allowed per move.
