Cosa dicono gli sviluppatori:

“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.”

Patch delayed... :(

Seems that converting from a right handed coordinate system to a left handed one is... fun... Loads of fun. Rather amusing seeing pieces face the wrong way and other nastiness. Trust me, you DON"T want what I've got right now. I expect a delay of a week before I get all of the rotation issues fixed.

Converting from DirectX to OpenGL is a level of hell. Don't worry, I'm feeling the burn.

Update coming November 21st

So sorry for the delays, we have been swamped with another project which sucked up our resources for a few months. We are going through the messages here and addressing all issues with BattleChess: Game of Kings.



On another note: a fan was calling our phone number and leaving messages, we wanted to reply, but since the fan didn't mention a return phone in the message and the caller ID was blocked, we couldn't respond. Please, leave a return number if you want a response.

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.

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!!

No updates in nearly 8 months. The current version has too many bugs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Chances are if you enter "Battle Chess" into Google Images, you will find (among other things, of course) images of the original 1988 Battle Chess from Interplay. It was one of the first games to replace traditional chess pieces with animated characters for a more immersive Chess experience. Fast forward about 25 years and here we are. Battle Chess has returned (again) with a modernized look and a sense of humor that remains true to its groundbreaking ancestor. Currently, there are three Battle Grounds (boards) to choose from: Throne Room, Garden, and Dungeon. There are only two color sets to choose from: White vs Black and Blue vs Red. Start up a game in Single Player and play against the computer or go up against a friend either Online or Hot Seat. The Online forum is divided into rooms based on Skill Level, which makes it easier to pair up with a random player. A handful of game options allow you to tweak the interactive experience as you like.

As a fan of the original Battle Chess, I have to say that I am happy to see it again. BC was how I actually learned to play Chess, back in the day. I think most of us would agree that the best thing BC has going for it is the battle sequences. Some of the scenes that transpire as one piece overtakes another are sincerely hilarious (my personal favorite being the Knight vs Queen). The soundtrack is nothing to sneeze at, either. But today, BC has to contend with Chessmaster and a few other prominent titles to hold its place as a Chess favorite. That being said, I really hope to see more content in the near future. It shouldn't be hard to come up with more choices for piece colors and even a few more boards. What we have so far is great for the price, but more customization would greatly enhance the appeal of this game. It would also make it easier to forgive the fact that the original Rook monster was replaced with a big, ugly, fat guy! Just saying. But hey, this is old school. Really cool old school. I can dig it.

*Note: This review is intended for people who want to make an informed decision on whether or not to buy this game. Although other players may have differing experiences and credible feedback to offer, this represents my own opinion after experiencing this game.

(original review) it's a fun game already, and i've only played it like an hour or 2. however in that 2 hours it crashed twice, no glitches, only problems i had were crashes and the white chess pieces turned black after a turn or two. (months later review) well, now i'm here about 8 months later if not longer, this being my first early access game, i am very disappointed. after burger becky stealing all of our hard earned money not thinking of anyone but herself, she has abandoned us all. saying oh my mother died, (next week) oh grandpa died (next week) oh had to clean up mothers death (next month) oh had to help grandpa and in his coffin. give me a ♥♥♥♥ing break becky. after 8 months or longer and no word, none. not one, you say oh well i will patch it up, yeah okay.

So far of the three games I've played, three have crashed the game. I would wait before buying this game as it needs a lot of bug fixing and as of right now it's been three months since the last update. The game has a lot of potential and I really hope they make a crisp, polished, finished product some day soon, but for now, wait before buying.

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...

The updates are so frequent that I have forgotten when the last one was. Game appears to be at a standstill with no update from the developer as to what is happening with it. There are many bugs that have not been addressed with no support for quite some time......has potential but not sure if it will even be finished.

*12/6/2014

Four months later...........my review still stands. Not a single update has occurred since my review of this Early Access full of broken promises. Twice the developer has said update coming (with dates) and nothing ever materializes. Then we get another delay from the dev......if the long awaited update was in the hands of beta testers, what's the holdup? The dev is running out of lies!
