Star Wars Chess
a game by LucasArts
Gaderffii-pounding Chess Action
The entire galaxy is at stake, and the desperate opponents are playing for keeps.
Every time a piece is captured, a close-up animation sequence records the conquest in violent detail.
When Chevvbacca seizes a Stormtrooper pawn, the victor lifts his foe high and dashes him to the ground.
Bounty hunter Boba Fett knocks C-3PO's head off his shoulders, and a Tusken Raider bludgeons Yoda with an enormous gaderffii stick.
Sometimes the captured piece fights back, provoking an all-out duel before the vanquished party is subdued.
Star Wars Chesslets you play the game any way you want. Pick your alliance and difficulty level, accept hints if you need them, and view your prisoners when you're feeling cruel.
If the elaborate character graphics overwhelm you or if you're playing against a purist, press Button В to switch to a 2-D board with traditional pieces.
And to do justice to the depth and intricacy of the game, Star Wars Chess lets you save games to return to later.
