Какво имат да кажат разработчиците:

“Battle Chess: Game of Kings is the return of the classic Battle Chess. We are bringing it back and into the modern day. Full 3-d, a better chess algorithm and more features for online play that we couldn't do with the original. Back then we were lucky to have 320x200, 16 colors and a 1200 baud modem at best.

We are currently in late alpha with a few more features to go and we want your feed back as we get them up and going and in yours hands. Chess itself is up and running and basic multiplayer (same screen and online)is too. Soon we will have ladders and ranking and skill based match making as well as skill challenges. As these come online we look forward to your feedback and help.

One thing for everyone to know. During Early Access Battle Chess: Game of Kings will be available at $9.99. When we go live with the full version the price will change to $19.99.”

Patch delayed... :(

Seems that converting from a right handed coordinate system to a left handed one is... fun... Loads of fun. Rather amusing seeing pieces face the wrong way and other nastiness. Trust me, you DON"T want what I've got right now. I expect a delay of a week before I get all of the rotation issues fixed.

Converting from DirectX to OpenGL is a level of hell. Don't worry, I'm feeling the burn.

Update coming November 21st

So sorry for the delays, we have been swamped with another project which sucked up our resources for a few months. We are going through the messages here and addressing all issues with BattleChess: Game of Kings.



On another note: a fan was calling our phone number and leaving messages, we wanted to reply, but since the fan didn't mention a return phone in the message and the caller ID was blocked, we couldn't respond. Please, leave a return number if you want a response.

It took 2,000 years for someone to make chess better!

The most challenging game on earth comes to life in Battle Chess. An entire medieval world at war is reflected on the checkered field.

Everyone who's ever had a knight take a pawn has seen that capture as more than one piece replacing another on the board. In player's minds, the bold knight, resplendent in his armor of silver or ebon, sallies forth and slays the foul footsoldier. Combat, mortal combat, is the heart and soul of chess, but this aspect of it can only live in the mind's eye... until now!

Lots of computer chess games capture the basics of chess. Only Battle Chess brings chess to life by combining a magnificent chess logic system with colorful, humorous, and dramatic three-dimensional animations.

Chances are if you enter "Battle Chess" into Google Images, you will find (among other things, of course) images of the original 1988 Battle Chess from Interplay. It was one of the first games to replace traditional chess pieces with animated characters for a more immersive Chess experience. Fast forward about 25 years and here we are. Battle Chess has returned (again) with a modernized look and a sense of humor that remains true to its groundbreaking ancestor. Currently, there are three Battle Grounds (boards) to choose from: Throne Room, Garden, and Dungeon. There are only two color sets to choose from: White vs Black and Blue vs Red. Start up a game in Single Player and play against the computer or go up against a friend either Online or Hot Seat. The Online forum is divided into rooms based on Skill Level, which makes it easier to pair up with a random player. A handful of game options allow you to tweak the interactive experience as you like.

As a fan of the original Battle Chess, I have to say that I am happy to see it again. BC was how I actually learned to play Chess, back in the day. I think most of us would agree that the best thing BC has going for it is the battle sequences. Some of the scenes that transpire as one piece overtakes another are sincerely hilarious (my personal favorite being the Knight vs Queen). The soundtrack is nothing to sneeze at, either. But today, BC has to contend with Chessmaster and a few other prominent titles to hold its place as a Chess favorite. That being said, I really hope to see more content in the near future. It shouldn't be hard to come up with more choices for piece colors and even a few more boards. What we have so far is great for the price, but more customization would greatly enhance the appeal of this game. It would also make it easier to forgive the fact that the original Rook monster was replaced with a big, ugly, fat guy! Just saying. But hey, this is old school. Really cool old school. I can dig it.

Unfortunately this was a complete waste of money. The game hasn't been finished and is showing no signs of ever being finished and relased -- have a quick look in the Forums and you will see all the complaints (along with 2 or 3 faithful fans that keep saying "STOP BEING IMPATIENT!") Well I'm tired of waiting (How long has it been? 6 months? 12? I cant even remember!) and I'm done checking the Hub every month to see if any announcements have come from the Dev. The Dev can't even be bothered to keep her paying customers informed on the state of the game? Not impressed. I'm done with this game. I recommend you do not buy it.

I bought this game in Early Access and after many months, it seems like a year now, the pc version is still in about the same state as when I purchased it. Shame on the one dev (Becky) team for even pretending to be working on this game. Game has been dead since day 1.

Pros. Game has changed little since its original release in 1988. Graphics are OK until the pieces start disappearing (turn solid black.)

Cons. Game hasn't improved much since its original release in 1988.

I'll be honest, take a chance only if you like single player and if you can buy it on sale for under $3, otherwise skip this game.

Would be a great chess game if it didn't keep crashing (I have a high end gaming computer) and the character's keep lossing their texturing mid game... wait to purchase until debug the hell out of it.

It seems like everytime you are about to beat the AI the game crashes. Computers version of a tableflip? Still reccomend the game though. just needs a lot of bug polishing, and every now and then the textures turn all black. other than that its a solid chess game thats a lot of fun to play

The original Battle Chess was one of the first experiences I ever had playing chess. I can't even begin to express how awesome this game is. Keep in mind, it is still in beta, this means it's gonna crash on you when you're about to win and you're gonna want to scream and break things. But remember, it will be finished and then it will be incredibly amazing. I can't wait for all the promised DLC that will be released in the future.

I never really played chess, but this game is very helpful with showing you the basics of how to play. Sure, the best I've done so far is stalemate, but I've only played this game for two hours and I've already learned how to not lose everytime. The soundtrack is okay in my opinion, tutorials are really helpful, view options are awesome and I like the humerous atmosphere this game brings because I'm getting tired of the ol' blood and gore that the majority of gamers consider a must-have. I wouldn't care to see chess become a bloody mess - literally.

Used to love playing the original back on the Amiga, great update of an old classic.
Graphics, animation and humour are great :)
Looking forward to playing the finished version.

Computer opponent is not too strong - easy to checkmate. Animations are nice, although the game is a little too brutal (plus or minus - I don't know) You can disable this battle animations in options- this is good. A great feature is a free multiplayer. Game has few bugs yet, but I recommend the game because the game has no limit activation. To the authors of Battle Chess - I wish you... I hope that the final version your game will better than the Battle vs. Chess.



And do not buy Battle vs. chess (another - game) - because you are dissapointed that you will be able to install her only a few times - Battle vs. Chess has limit activation
so what that Battle vs. Chess has better options in the interface, better camera control, an interesting campaign, and more puzzles... but has stupid limit activation on steam!. That's why Battle Chess is much better from Battle vs. Chess. And Battle Chess is much cheaper from Battle vs. Chess

Developper Battle vs. Chess TopWare only "milked money" from uninformed customers about limit activation, and steam should be ashamed that they do not inform about this in the description.

Are they going to fix the crashes and characters turning black? This game would be so awesome if they fixed the characters turning black... so far I've played three games, crashed once (on a draw, king vs. king); but every single time I play the characters turn black (seems related to another piece of that type being taken). I played this back on DOS in the 80s and it was awesome; I would hate to see this tarnish the legacy in an unfinished state. Also would be great with mods and additional animations + character themes / styles.

The updates are so frequent that I have forgotten when the last one was. Game appears to be at a standstill with no update from the developer as to what is happening with it. There are many bugs that have not been addressed with no support for quite some time......has potential but not sure if it will even be finished.

*12/6/2014

Four months later...........my review still stands. Not a single update has occurred since my review of this Early Access full of broken promises. Twice the developer has said update coming (with dates) and nothing ever materializes. Then we get another delay from the dev......if the long awaited update was in the hands of beta testers, what's the holdup? The dev is running out of lies!

Looks good on first impression.

I would love to see some more humour and an "adult" mode that is a bit more violent and wickedly evil.

I'll keep my eye on this, loved the original back in the day and can't wait for a morphing castle to bash a queen or a king pulling out a pistol! And of course, see a knight have hiss legs chopped off ;)

I'm impressed with the game. Good Intro, good music, nice intutitive interface. I would recommend anyone starting the game turn the graphics options (antialising and texture filtering to max) as its not much of a system hit at all and help it look even better.

Being Early access I find this game to be a winner at 9.99. I would like to see more animations with more humor in future updates. Also an idea, give the community tools or the know how to mod the game.
