Description of Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess

Too bad many people are discouraged to play this game because they think Chinese Chess is either not interesting or too difficult to learn. Nothing can be further from the truth!

Chinese Chess is easy to learn, especially when Interplay applies the wonderfully original idea of Battle Chess to the intriguing Chinese Chess system, animating Chinese soldiers with style and humor. With the tremendous task of memorizing Chinese characters removed, now you have no excuse for not trying this one out :)

What a pity that GOG used the original Battle Chess, not the enhanced version. Glad that they included Battle Chess II (this game) and BC4000, but.... :-(

Game works fine - but only with codes (DOS-Version, Amiga-Version i didn't test)!

@Darren - seems that this game is the original version.
So codes needed from the reference card which came with the original game.
But you can find them on the internet, too - search for example with google for "battle chess 2 codes".
