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.

Although the game still has a few issues, I wanted to give a contrasting positive recommendation. This is because I've been able to play and enjoy several games of it myself and also to hopefully encourage further development on it. I can understand and sympathize with the negative reviewers as it was problematic for a long time, but I was glad to see the developer did come back to improve it to the point where it can be an enjoyable experience.

So first, remaining problems I still see:

- still see that odd error message but not until I'm finished and exiting the game, so it doesn't affect play anyway
- except for the dungeon board, still occasionally see a piece blacken - I've seen knight and bishop do this, but now I'm still able to finish the game even then.
- combat vault not activated yet, but not a priority to me
- don't find anyone in any to play in the online rooms, so if anyone wants to, let me know

I would love to see:

- the above remaining things fixed
- trading cards!
- maybe some add-ons with more battle scenes, higher levels, etc, more puzzles, new piece sets, boards, etc
- online activity

I was a big fan of the old one way back then and this is a great update!

Another game down the same line of ♥♥♥♥ just like DayZ; the price upped and nothing done to the game. Fellow early access gamers are once again being conned. This issue with early access games is absolutely disgusting and it's happened to me more than once. I'm deleting this game from my steam library and will never buy another early access game again. EVER. ♥♥♥♥ you early access developers who don't deliever your promises and decieve your followers by raising the price for no ♥♥♥♥ing reason what so ever and deliever absolutely nothing to the game. ♥♥♥♥ YOU.

Battle Chess is broken and needs to be put down. Players turn black and game keeps crashing with latest build and crash fixes applied that people have found.
