Graphically, despite being lowresolution, Battle Chess is more than adequate, with well-drawn sprites. Overall, the game is well presented and packed with all the options you’d expect – seven selectable skill levels, one or two players, saveable games etc. So, novice or not, Battle Chess is simply great fun.

Craignos la définition sur C64! L'échiquier est un invraisemblable fouillis et même en ouvrant grand les mirettes, on distingue difficilement un pion d'un fou. L'adaptation est fidèle à celle de l'Amiga (avec le Zzz typique quand la bécane mouline), on y retrouve la reine au déhanchement sexy, la tour qui se transforme en monstre, le vicieux qui écrabouille la main dudit monstre quand il est jeté aux oubliettes, le fou qui se roule par terre avant d'être désintégré, et aussi toute la gamme de bruitages, de pas pesants, ferraillage, pleurs... Et puis, il y a les attentes, longuettes, ça rame dans le processeur. Faut-il l'ajouter à votre logithèque? Oui si c'est pour se marrer entre copains, sûrement pas si vous voulez expérimenter une nouvelle ouverture.
