About

Are you ready to become a champion? Choose your hero and challenge other players in this family-friendly game with a lively cartoon style. Train your brain and bond with your loved ones at the same time.

In this fantasy world, one of the brave heroes leads your chess army to victory. Choose between a mysterious fairy, a dangerous dwarf, a clever elf, a brave prince, and many more. Thanks to them each round turns into an epic adventure.

The graphics for Brawl Chess were designed by Platige Image (Oscar-nominated The Cathedral, The Witcher Netflix series, cinematic trailers for League of Legends, Halo 5, and Cyberpunk 2077). They filled the chessboard with various heroes and a lot of humor.

Cartoon visuals make the game accessible to everyone. What’s going on there! Arrows flying above heads and swords breaking in the heat of battle. Or maybe you prefer classic chess? You can always switch to traditional pieces.

Brawl Chess connects generations in a multiplayer mode, but single player will also appeal to players of all ages. There are 5 levels of difficulty. The first is great for children to learn. The fifth is suited for chess veterans who are looking for a serious challenge.
