Brutal Chess – a 3D chess game with reflection of the chessmen.
Brutal Chess features full 3D graphics, an advanced particle engine, and several different levels of intelligent AI, inspired by the once popular Battle Chess released by Interplay circa 1988.
Brutal Chess is a cross-platform GPL chess game with 3D graphics powered by OpenGL and SDL. This release is an alpha version and is by no means feature complete. The major focus of the release was a complete rewrite of the entire code base. There have also been improvements to the user interface. Future versions should focus on more features for the users and happen at a much quicker pace.
All standard chess moves should be supported. To move, simply click on a piece, then click on the destination square. To deselect a piece, click on it again or click the right mouse button. To castle, move the king to his destination square and the rook will be moved appropriately. Pawn promotion is no longer limited to only queens. When a move results in pawn promotion simply click the piece you would like to promote to.
