Description from the packaging.

Cannons thunder, chariots race over the grassy fields, and dragons hurl fireballs at opposing forces in the latest animated strategy game from Interplay Productions. Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess, and 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, counsellors flatten pawns with enormous mallets hidden in their robes, and cannons merrily blast away at opponents cowering behind other pieces.

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

Some of the many features included in Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess are:

  • A strong Chinese Chess algorithm.
  • 2D & 3D viewing modes.
  • Recommends best move.

  • Play by modem.
  • Take back and replay moves.
