Hi, Newgrounds. I thought I would never have to say that, but long time no see. Anyway, many sleepless months went into making this one, so I really hope you like it.

So what is it about, you may ask? Well, what can possibly be more fun than chess pieces that come to life to beat the snot, blood and brains out of each other.

The game is entirely mouse operated.

In case you mess up, you can always "undo turn".

Can you see all 50 animations? The hardest ones to achieve are the best, for instance the king is badass when killing an enemy. If you click on the "executions" button in the main menu it tells you which ones you've seen and which ones you haven't.

I spent some time creating an entertaining in-game "chess rules" section, which thoroughly explains all the rules of the game on 14 pages. Hopefully, beginner and intermediate players will find it useful.


Wow, Daily First, Weekly 3rd in Games, Weekly 8th Overall, Monthly 8th in Games and more than 200K plays? You guys are amazing!

Thank you for playing, have fun and see you soon with a new submission :)

Great game!

Although, being able to castle would be great, make that addition, and i give it 10/10 5/5

You can castle only if you match the criteria, just like in real chess. Check out the "Chess Rules" section and read carefully the info about "Castling". Thanks for playing.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It's decently executed for a flash game, but..

Battle Chess will always be number one for me (it's a tie between that and 3D Tetris for my most exciting DOS moments/hours/).

I enjoyed the game after all, and I appreciate the effort - I bet it's an awful lot of work with the graphics, AI and all, so I give it a 7. The main reason for not giving more than that is the lack of originality in concept.

Maybe you could shake it up a bit? .. for people who are too clever for the AI (I'm not inculded) with "side quests" for achievements (or unlocking a gallery for the animations, unlocking 2player mode etc..) where you have to use certain combos.

Brilliant twist to a classic game!

I found the game absolutely flawless, the concept was inovative and kept the fun of the game flowing, and the 50 scenarios pretty much gives it a high replay value

My only qualm was I found the AI opponent a little too easy to beat. Maybe if in your next re-make of this game (if you ever do remake it,) Perhaps alternate difficulty levels could be a new feature?
