Battle Chess: Game of Kings (2015) – A Review

Battle Chess: Game of Kings is a turn-based strategy game developed by Ubisoft Sofia and published by Ubisoft. It is a remake of the 1988 game Battle Chess, which was originally developed by Interplay Productions. The game was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 3, 2015.

The game features a medieval setting, with the chess pieces being represented by medieval soldiers and knights. The game board is also set in a medieval castle, with the pieces moving around on the squares of the board.

The game can be played against the computer or against another human player. There are also a number of different game modes available, including a campaign mode, a survival mode, and a puzzle mode.

The campaign mode is a story-driven mode that follows the journey of a young knight named Sir Lancelot. Lancelot must travel across the land, defeating enemy chess pieces and completing quests in order to save the kingdom.

The survival mode is a wave-based mode in which the player must defend their castle from waves of enemy chess pieces. The player can earn money by defeating enemy pieces, which can be used to purchase upgrades for their castle and their pieces.

The puzzle mode is a collection of puzzles that the player must solve in order to progress. The puzzles can be quite challenging, and require the player to think strategically in order to find the solution.


Battle Chess: Game of Kings is a turn-based strategy game. The player takes turns moving their pieces around the board, and attacking enemy pieces. Each piece has its own unique abilities and movement patterns.

The pieces in Battle Chess: Game of Kings are as follows:

  • Pawn: The pawn is the most basic piece in the game. It can move one square forward, or two squares forward on its first move. It can capture enemy pieces that are diagonally in front of it.
  • Knight: The knight is a powerful piece that can move in an “L” pattern. It can jump over other pieces, and it is not affected by obstacles.
  • Bishop: The bishop can move any number of squares diagonally. It is a good piece for controlling long diagonals.
  • Rook: The rook can move any number of squares horizontally or vertically. It is a good piece for controlling files and ranks.
  • Queen: The queen is the most powerful piece in the game. It can move any number of squares in any direction.
  • King: The king is the most important piece in the game. It can move one square in any direction. The king cannot be captured, but it can be put into check if it is threatened by an enemy piece.

The goal of the game is to checkmate the opponent’s king. Checkmate occurs when the king is under attack and cannot escape.

Graphics and Sound

Battle Chess: Game of Kings has beautiful graphics that bring the medieval setting to life. The chess pieces are all highly detailed, and the animations are fluid and realistic. The game also has a great soundtrack that sets the mood for the game.


Battle Chess: Game of Kings is a great turn-based strategy game that is perfect for fans of chess and medieval warfare. The game has a beautiful art style, a great soundtrack, and challenging gameplay. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new strategy game to play.
