Wat de ontwikkelaars zeggen:

“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.”

Over dit spel

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

  • Skill Challenge: Test your Chess skills by completing game play scenario challenges in a certain number of moves.

  • Tutorials: Video tutorials explain the rules and basic strategies of chess with a little bit of humor.

I have had it with this game. I bought the game in July of 2014 without reading any reviews. Boy that was stupid! This game would be the phatest chess game since I was a kid, but the devs obviously don't care about the game or their customers. After buying it, I was unable to complete one game without it crashing. So despite all of the aggravated comments, I thought I'd hold my peace and wait for a patch. So I waited, and waited, and waited, and waited, and OH the devs promised a patch. So I waited, and waited, OH the devs had a death in the family. I couldn't hold that against them. So I waited, and waited, and waited, and waited, and OH an apology for the delay with another promised patch. I can't remember what the last excuse was for the delay to that patch, but I waited. Sorry for the drama, but I'm trying to get across how the purchasing of this game was a complete waste of my money. It is now the end of January 2015, and I have played my first game since last July. Ten minutes of gameplay with the lowest graphics settings possible (which I shouldn't have to do b/c my system is top notch) and CRASH!! If you've read this before purchasing, you've been warned!!

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.

Sorry for late review, firstly my pet woodlouse died... then as i sorted that woodlouses will, i heard from a friend that a mongoose also died half way around the world....

Why is this a steer clear game?

- No communication from dev apart from excuses / lies
- Game is broken due to bugs and crashes constantly (has been for months with 0 progress)
- No explenation given
- No refund provided


Best thing to do, from now on is simply boycott Old Skuul games, they are an example of a horrific company that just wants your money... i would elaborate on this review but "Something came up" im not sure what but i will figure it out.

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.

This game has potential, but it appears the developers have abandoned doing any more work on it. If you're contemplating purchasing this game, DON'T! Wait until the developers release a complete version of the game free of bugs and other issues.

A horrible game that pretty much sums up what video games have become these days.

1. The game is very clunky and wastes a lot of time with unneeded messages. "A castle is available!" "You've completed watching all the animations for X unit!" It's very annoying.

2. Bugs. Glitches. Crashes. This game is full of em'. Do you like the game crashing in roughly 50% of your games? The dev certainly does, because this game does just that.

3. The dev has promised several fixes in the future. Well, at least he did A YEAR AGO. Nuff' said.

4. Full 3-d animations seem pretty cool until you realize that there's only 3 animations per fight. (Pawn vs Pawn, King vs Bishop, etc.) Would be nice if more was added but that's hoping for a lot from this dev.

5. Did I forget to mention that this game crashes a lot?

6. Some of the animations make no sense at all. I lost all hope when the my Knight and the AI Queen got into a dancing contest.

7. Sonofa... THE GAME JUST CRASHED AGAIN

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.

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

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.

Maybe an update is due?
But until then, this chess game is painful to watch as it really struggles via a Haswell i7 4770 GTX 780 rig with the best of everything on it.
I will re-review the game after; as it has soooooo much potenital, and I know if it worked great, then I would love it.
Until then, `Battle Vs Chess` rather than this...

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.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
Not a polished game but what do you expect from early access? I was pleasently surprised with the art direction and how humerous the animations can be and like the variation in them, it can make playing Chess all the more funnier. A major fault however would be how the camera is warped and awakwardly placed at the beginning of combat animations. Also I don't know if it's me being good at this game or not but the difficulty seems rather easy and predictable, even on the higher levels.

I wouldn't recommend this game to non-Chess fans, but on the contrary, would to fans alike. Having said that if you're new to Chess or looking for an entry point this may not be a bad place to begin, if you can get past the price tag, but what you're paying for is more than wooden pieces moving across a board.
