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 players' minds, the bold knight, resplendent in his armor of silver or ebon, sallies forth and slays the foul foot soldier. Combat, mortal combat, lies in the heart and soul of chess, but this aspect of it could only live in the mind's eye â€“ until now!
The Battle Chess Special Edition contains three different games, each with it's own unique gameplay, so you can experience the mortal combat thrill of chess more intensely than you ever imagined! Chess is no longer an abstract mental exercise. It is an entertainment that will prove the words of the famous Oriental Philosopher Chef Kung Pao who said - "War is fun!"
It took 2000 years for someone to make chess better!
- Includes the original Battle Chess, Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess and Battle Chess 4000
- Amusing chess piece animations
- A challenging AI with over 30,000 moves
Cannons thunder, chariots race over grassy fields, and dragons hurl fireballs at opposing forces in this animated strategy game from Interplay Productions. Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess, an ancient cousin to western chess, features stunning graphics, realistic sound effects, and more humorous animation than the original Battle Chess. Watch as dragons toast hapless knights, counsellors flatten pawns with enormous mallets hidden in their robes, and cannons merrily blast away at opponents cowering behind other pieces. With Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess, chess is no longer an abstract mental exercise. It is an entertainment that will prove the words of the famous Oriental Philosopher/Chef Kung Pao who said "War is fun!"
