Battle Chess is a computer game version of chess in which the chess pieces come to life and battle one another when capturing. The game itself was inspired by the 3D chess sequences from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Futureworld. There are 35 animations, including movement, prelude to battle, and the combinations of battle itself (the latter often being rather brutal)...

Online emulated version of Battle Chess was originally developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), an 8-bit third-generation home video game cartridge-based console produced by Nintendo, first released in Japan as the Family Computer (commonly known as the Famicom) in 1983. The NES, a face-lifted version, was released internationally in the following years. The NES featured a number of groundbreaking games, such as the platform game Super Mario Bros, the action-adventure game The Legend of Zelda and the action game Metroid. As one of the best-selling gaming consoles of its time, the NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983.
The game controller used for both the NES and the Famicom features an oblong brick-like design with a simple four button layout: two round buttons labeled `A` and `B`, a `START` button, and a `SELECT` button. Additionally, the controllers utilize the cross-shaped joypad, designed by Nintendo employee Gunpei Yokoi, for Nintendo Game & Watch systems, to replace the bulkier joysticks on earlier gaming consoles' controllers.
