If you're tired of standing by helplessly as your opponent chips away at your army, then take a stand with the three new unique Battle Modes in Battle vs Chess.  These revolutionary additions turn the checkered battlefield into combat arena where player's pieces clash in action-packed duels.

Defending pieces are granted one last chance to avoid capture as they square off against their attackers in a 3rd-person overhead combat scenario, with each piece possessing its own unique characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, and attacks.  So while fending off a bishop with a pawn may be a tall order, the battle is by no means unwinnable.  If the defending piece is in fact able to fend off its attacker, the beaten foe will humiliatingly be sent limping back to its original square, and the defender left to fight another day.  As a result honing ones skills with their various soldiers becomes paramount in securing their path to victory, and introduces a whole new dimension to the classic game.
