Game Review (written by Mkiniorski) Added on: 03/20/2007
This game is a classic among classics. Not only does it have the never-ending strategy of chess but it adds in the combat in a medieval setting. I played this a lot when I was just a kid in the 80’s. I barely knew how to play chess other than how to simple make a legal move. I loved watching the pieces capture each other since they would fight it out right on the squares. Even the sounds make each capture more enjoyable.

The King would pull out all sorts of neat toys and weapons to fend off those that came to close. The Queen used magic to get the job done. The rooks, huge moving castles would use either brut force or in some cases its mouth to destroy / devourer its foes. The Holy Bishops would crush those silly enough to get in their diagonals. Meanwhile the knights would wield a mean sword. The pawns with only a spear to work with somehow got the job done when they did capture. My favorite was how the knights when capturing one of their own kind would cut off all the arms and legs before finishing it with a sword to the neck. Some of

the other good ones were that the rooks would eat the queens when they captured them and flatten the king’s after matting. I even took the time as a youth to see how each piece captured every other piece. Finding some ways to mate the king while barely knowing more than basic strategy was a bit tricky but I figured it out. I am sure that you will enjoy seeing the small little pawns find ways to destroy their enemy with what at times seems to be just dumb luck.
The chess strength it self was good enough to keep me challenged while I learned how to really play the game. It had 9 settings and I could quickly beat it on the 4th level. After that the AI would take forever to move and it was difficult to finish the games due to my impatient.
I found the 3d view hard to play a whole game on so I would switch to the 2d view until I was about to capture a piece.
Overall this is a great game. If you are looking for a solid chess program this is not it but if you are looking for some entertainment while you play this is a great game for all ages and chess playing abilities. Please enjoy this as much as I have.

The Chinese chess version has one flaw: they hadn't bothered to include the rule that the kings are not allowed to face each other across the board. Otherwise, it's OK

This is a great game. I remember playing battle chess a long time ago. That were the good old days.
