    Cannons thunder, chariots race over grassy fields, and dragons hurl fireballs at opposing forces in the latest animated strategy game from Interplay Productions. Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess, an ancient cousin to western chess, features stunning graphics, realistic sound effects, and more humorous animation than the original Battle Chess. Watch as dragons toast hapless knights, counselors flatten pawns with enormous mallets hidden in their robes, and cannons merrily blast away at opponents cowering behind other pieces. Some of the many features included in Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess are:

    • A Strong Chinese Chess algorithm
    • 2D & 3D viewing modes
    • Multiple levels of difficulty
    • Take back and replay moves
    • Play by Modem
    • Recommends best move
    • Show legal moves


    With Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess, chess is no longer an abstract mental exercise. It is an entertainment that will prove the words of the famous Oriental Philosopher/Chef Kung Pao who said "War is fun!"
