Hvad udviklerne siger:

“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.”

Sorry for the delays in updates!

Recently, my mother passed away, and when I finally was able to settle her affairs, my wife's father passed away suddenly, causing us to once again drop what we were doing and settle the family's affairs. After getting back, comes E3, and a giant pile of contracts, emails and other stuff that sucked the time and life out of me.

It's all behind us now. Soooooooo... I'm doing a Perforce get, building and coding and wrapping up the few remaining bugs left in BattleChess: Game of Kings, so we can move this game from Early Access to full release!

Thank you, everyone, who has pre-purchased the game and helped me through your bug reports to help polish this game to a level of quality you'd expect from Olde Sküül and my old company, Interplay Productions!

PS. Tell your friends to buy the game and slip some burgers under the slot in my office door. Yum!

About This Game

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.

Battle Chess: Game of Kings

A new version of the classic animated chess game for Windows Vista, 7 and 8 is in development! Updated with all new animations and features, this is the ultimate version of Battle Chess.

  • Turn-based Multiplayer: Play against the computer with scalable difficulty or against live opponents via the internet.
  • Skill Challenge: Test your Chess skills by completing game play scenario challenges in a certain number of moves.
  • Battleground Training: Control your environment. Place pieces strategically on the chess board to test strategy.
  • Tutorials: Video tutorials explain the rules and basic strategies of chess with a little bit of humor.
  • Animations: Watch your army execute vivid capture moves as they take an opposing piece. Dozens of unique battles, idle and movement animations bring the battleground to life.
  • Achievements: Earn achievements and trophies.
  • Environments: Choose between 3 unique Battlegrounds.

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.

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.

Seems great but I bought it for the multiplayer aspect in which the lobby is always empty. In that case I will have to use this review section to appeal to players to add me if they want a game online! Then I can give a more fully fledged review. Add me fellow chess heads - cmpcperc

This is definately the best 3d chess game currently available, and I have tried most of the popular ones. The pieces are detailed and easily recognizable, the online multiplayer works well (have played 4 online games so far), it just needs a few more players in the lobby. I have only played against the AI on the 2nd skill level (out of 6), as I am only a beginner at chess. It's not too difficult as to be frustrating (as some chess engines are), but still somewhat challenging as a way to improve. I am happy I saved $10 by buying the early release.

I recommend disabling the battle camera, setting it to windowed mode, increasing movement speed, disabling the post-processing filter, and adjusting the resolution. After playing many games, I prefer to have battle animations disabled, although an option for shorter, simpler animations would be very nice.

Please add me to friends if you want to play a game (since the lobby is often empty)

There are a few minor issues which will hopefully be fixed soon, none of which break the game however.

My knight attracted the opponents queen, danced with her and showed her the time of her life........then snapped her neck in the middle of a routine. Just EPIC

Saw this, had to buy it. Great game! Couldn't find an online opponent but I'm sure that'll change once Steam (pun intended) picks up. Game has crashed on me a few times, sometimes the chess pieces turn all black (losing defining colors, kinda looks like Noob Saibot from Moral Kombat) but it is fun to time travel back and think of Interplay's original incarnations of the game, and see this. I hope this does well, as I can tell that, while there are some kinks to be worked out, master craftsmen were at work putting this together. If you like chess, get this - Good buy.

Also found that crashes occur when you change the stage to anything but inside the castel :\

Great game it has been a very long time since playing any sort of chess this offers a good level of game play not to hard but enough to make you want more.

The characters are fun and give good laugh bit of blood would be nice touch for older people but not sure if that would effect games clasification index

all in all its very fun game and for the low price its good value for money im enjoying it and will update the review in few weeks

Now that the game is playable and no longer crashing for me i love it, a few small bugs still that can be fixed but otherwise great, brings me back to the amiga 500 version that i played growing up as a kid :)

soon as we can get more people playing and on the mutliplayer with a ranking system,would only further add to the enjoyment and interest to the game..

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.

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.

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.

Seems fun. Early and buggy, but fun.

Game DESPERATELY needs an auto-save feature because presently when it crashes to desktop, you lose your game.

And it crashes a LOT. Like... always. I've yet to see a game pass 10 rounds.
