Ce que les développeurs ont à dire :

“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.”

Build 6614 is up

Fixed a buffer overrun in the chess logic. (Took forever to find this one)
Fixed an invalid value being sent to the light shader (Caused memory trashing).

Played 4 games from start to finish, no crashes. Either I'm really lucky, or I found the crash bug. Please, prove me right!!!

À propos de ce jeu

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.

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

Currently, I CAN NOT RECOMMEND this game due to all the game crashing that happens...(I can never get past the first move)... though I may change my review in the future when fixed.

With that said... I could see the game doing vary well with lots of DLC type content, every thing from monsters to hot babes as chess pieces and more board options and such.

please fix the crashing... my Rig is pretty good ... I7, 8 gig ram, nvidia 960... runs every game i download accept this one

thanks

When I noticed that Battle Chess was re-released (this time for PC), I was pleasantly suprised and immediately purchased the game. I've been a fan of chess for thirty years and enjoy the usually quiet, but "personal" interaction with other players. Unfortuantely, if you're looking for online multiplayer action, you won't find it here because there's never anybody in the online multiplayer server.
