THE KINGS' GAME - COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
Commanders, assemble your armies! CHECK vs. MATE calls for an interactive feather duster, chartering the successful chess game principle into the present day multimedia world. Animated fantasy figurines assemble in magical worlds and await your command! As a Commander, execute skillful maneuvers on the game board and catapult yourself directly into the battle with devastating attacks, chessman vs. chessman.
Check vs. Mate is based on the fusion of professional chess simulation and an action-driven battle game. As soon as the player decides to make a move, the figures awaken into life and move across the chess board. If the opponent's square is occupied, the action-laden part of the game takes over. When the player keeps to the standard rules of chess, a short fight sequence ensues on the battlefield and visualizes the move.
Chess – the unrivalled champion of strategy games has been attracting players of all ages for countless centuries. CHECK vs. MATE is based on the simple yet ingenious concept of creating a fusion between professional chess software and upbeat, combat oriented game mechanics, complete with richly animated game pieces. At the outset of a match things seem quite basic: a 3D game board pits two opponents against each other in a seemingly ordinary game of chess. The game board itself is set in one of six available environments, each with its own unique landscape and presentation features. Traditionally recognized game pieces have been given a facelift as hulking stone golems and beastly chimaeras take the place of the typical rook and knight pieces respectively.
