About

Commanders, assemble your armies! BATTLE vs. CHESS calls for an interactive feather duster, chartering the successful chess game principle into the present day multimedia world. Animated fantasy figurines assemble in magical worlds and await your command! As a Commander, execute skillful maneuvers on the game board and catapult yourself directly into the battle with devastating attacks, chessman vs. chessman.

Chess – the unrivalled champion of strategy games has been attracting players of all ages for countless centuries. BATTLE vs. CHESS is based on the simple yet ingenious concept of creating a fusion between professional chess software and upbeat, combat oriented game mechanics, complete with richly animated game pieces. At the outset of a match things seem quite basic: a 3D game board pits two opponents against each other in a seemingly ordinary game of chess. The game board itself is set in one of six available environments, each with its own unique landscape and presentation features. Traditionally recognized game pieces have been given a facelift as hulking stone golems and beastly chimaeras take the place of the typical rook and knight pieces respectively.


FEATURES:
  • Multiple richly crafted army sets combined with 6 different gameboard environments introduce an unheard of visual complexity
  • Two gripping strategy campaigns with 30 missions and 30 different mission goals
  • Interactive 3rd person action mode
  • Beat'em up fights in six unique arenas with each of the twelve characters
  • Challenging PvP duels together on one PC over LAN and Internet
  • Utilizing the famous Fritz! chess algorithm, equipped with 10 distinct levels of difficulty, as well as an extensive opening library, participants of all skill levels are provided with an appropriate degree of challenge
  • The state of the art 3D graphics engine powers the breath taking visuals through the incorporation of HDR and particle effects
  • Cinematic quality animated sequences pull players into the action of the game
  • The innovative fusion of professional chess software and action oriented fight-ing simulations result in a strategic action experience unlike anything before

Battle vs Chess reviews and comments

+ the only Chess Game on Steam-Multiplayer doesn't work-Price conclusion: I bought the Game because I wanted to play Chess online against others but then I was able to find out: The Multiplayer is the purest. There is no Server List or opponent Search Function. Only works in LAN or as it seems about Direct IP. To the Game I don't need to say much it's Chess. You can play the game in 3D View with Combat Animations or quite classic in 2D.

A very interesting and fun Game that has more than expected to do with the right Chess. It is definitely recommended to know the Basics and the Rules of Chess, as you have enormous Advantages for the Game through these. This makes it much easier for the Player to create the specified Target in the minimum Moves. Although the Game also has a Tutorial That explains how the Characters pull each, for a Player without Premonition it is extremely difficult to remember everything in such a fast Time. The Tasks of the various Positions are creatively devised. Often it is not as easy to reach the Goal as expected. Both the Animations of the 16 Characters on each Page are also well done. It also contains different Game Modes, which also give the weaker player a Chance in the multiplayer mode, since the Characters are placed randomly, for example. All in all, it is a successful Game that represents the Fun and Joy of Chess well. Only the Multiplayer mode Could be improved by also being able to play against others via the Internet and not only by LAN or on a Computer.

Nice Game! Whether in single or Multiplayer mode, every chess Lover can let his Skills run wild here and there are Also extra Functions (but you have to buy the Game:P) *-* The Bots are pretty clever Players here, but They need them A While for her Turn, if you want to place her at Difficulty level 9 (highest Level) ZzzZZzz (since I can only recommend to determine the X button somehow ... And even then you should bring a lot of Time!! But I'm just talking about the higher Levels!!) I never played The Tutorial As I got in with enough Knowledge, but it's certainly good;) Otherwise, the Additional Functions (you can play without, i.e. simply classic Chess) are good to understand, without Any guidance, such as battle mode. The Controls are also easy to display with Z at any time ^^ Oh, and the Animations of the Characters are really beautiful *-* (but I recommend the white Side ... They're just cooler). However, Tab Can be used to change the Look of all Characters to perhaps get an Overview faster. I definitely recommend the Game to anyone who already plays chess and also likes to play. In addition, you should be able to invest Time in the Game, because unfortunately the Games cannot be stored in between;) Anyone else who can't do Chess yet might want to read Comments on the Tutorial again ^^
