Was die Entwickler zu sagen haben:

“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!!!

Über dieses Spiel

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.

Early Access-Review
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!!

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.

Early Access-Review
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
