I don't know if this game is actually basically a recreation of the games that taught me how to play chess when I was a kid, but it sure looks like a more modernized version of them.
I've always had a PC at home from the day I was born. I feel lucky in that aspect since computers didn't become something everyone had till nearly 20 years later. And, hell, even today I talk to some people who don't have a computer at home (seriously, how do you survive if you don't have a computer today? lol).
The point of this is that when I was a young kid I learned how to play chess with Battle Chess and its sequel Chinese Battle Chess. These games were awesome back in the day and if anyone knows about Check vs Mate let me know what you do. I'd love to hear more about it. I'll add this game to my wishlist, but, to be honest, a chess game is quite low on my priorities at the moment.
I figured I'd share my find and my story. Enjoy!
