Download includes the enhanced edition with the yellow chess board. Some moves freeze the game to a stand still for inexplicable reasons.

The game runs fine in DOSBOX on my Slackware Linux machine, either in window or full screen, the sound is fine as well.

If you end up with a gazillion toolbars and all kinds of crap you are probably using Internet Explorer. Get a real browser and protect yourself with AdBlocking add-ons and a good HOSTS file.

I have a slightly different version of Battle Chess that I think is better, the queen throws bolts of lightening, and the bishop makes a snickering sound when he kills. I think it's version 4.

File downloaded bit won't open nor are the docs recognised by Adobe.
File won't open to full screen without more downloads - too much hassle.

How come I have to down load 40 tool bars and 35 zip extractors and my brand new computer needs to download better software to run a this 30 year old game. What a Fuken joke.

You maybe want to try out the Commodore Amiga version of this game instead. Search the web for a disk image in ADF format and run the game using the WinUAE emulator. The Amiga version is more colorful (32 colors instead of just 16) and has better sound effects.

I play it in d-fend reloaded and i use the dosbox app to run this game. but suddenly it comes laggy, especially when the bishop take a move. Do you guys have the same problem and if yes, what's the the solution?
I love old games though i'm 16 years old.

When I move my bishop the game slows down, and becomes unresponsive. Anyone else having this problem? As soon as the bishop has made it's animation the game works again. (Only when I move the bishop.)

Then search for battlechess.nes from google and save in your sd card.Open NESlite and browse the game to open it.. Similarly you can download Mario bros.nes, contra.nes, etc..... Sorry for my bad English...

AWSOME!! My dad used to play this a lot! I had so much fun watching the animations, and now i can finally practice on this classic!

The only bad thing is there's no sound x.x (using the suggested program for XP/Vista although im on 7) Any ideas on how to get some sound?

My favorite animation is a knight takes knight move. Great 386x game, would play it just to see the 'executions'

Game works in DosBox, though there is no sound, and it's a little glitchy.

Overall it's a classic game and well worth the download to play again!!
