Title BattleChess Game Type Strategy Players 1-2 HD Installable Yes Compatibility All Submission Isaac Abraham email@example.com Review A bog standard chess game, but for two major differences. Firstly, it has a 3D fantasy-style option. Here, when moving pieces, a little animation occurs showing the pieces walking around. Similarly, when taking an opponent`s piece, an animation showing a fight between the two pieces happens. It`s good for about 10 minutes, then the novelty wears off, because you simply lose your train of thought. So, switching back to the 2D mode, what else does this game have to offer? It has 10 predefined levels, plus an option for you to choose how long the computer has to think. Nothing out of the ordinary here. There are Undo and Replay buttons, and the option to save your game. Again, nothing fantastic. So it boils down to one other thing - and this is easily the most important feature of any chess game - the chess engine. I played it against three other chess games I have installed on my HD - UChess, VChess, and Chess. UChess is easily the most powerful chess game on the Amiga, with some fantastic tactics and a particularly good strategy. It beat BattleChess within 25 moves on most occasions, given the same amount of time (15 seconds) VChess always won against BattleChess also, as did Chess, although they both required more time. Basically, BattleChess is a cack chess player. Unless you are easily impressed by fancy graphics, stick to the UChess - it`s faster, about a billion time better, takes advantage of more memory and faster processors better, and, incredibly, is free.
