Super Cheap, Highly Tactical Chess Knights: Viking Lands Coming To Xbox
We have had Brawl Chess – Gambit, we have had Ultra Chess, we have had Pure chess and we had the ‘failures but not the failures’, Retreat of the knight. In fact, there are loads of decent chess titles out there already on PC and console. Now, although there is another one and with the launch of Chess Knights: Viking Lands, we will need to put our tactical skills on the table again.
Available for purchase and download on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S after its previous PC release via Steam, Chess Knights: Viking Lands was created by Minimol Games, with console porting rights managed by QUByte. Interactive.
It costs £ 3.29 and it must be said that Chess Knights: Viking Lands is coming to console in the same vein as Knight’s Retreat – a chess game that had nothing to do with chess. This is apparently the case here as well.
Chess Knights: Viking Lands will have you attempting to save the kings and queens of the chessboard, using the power of the knight to do so. And while it can be an easy task if you work on the wonders of a standard chess system, Viking Lands mixes things up a bit. You see, this is quite a quirky affair, allowing you to hop and jump your knights in different areas in order to get the most powerful pieces of the throne back to safety.
That low price seems to make Chess Knights: Viking Lands for Xbox a hugely worthwhile buy as well, especially considering that there are no less than 40 crafted stages to go. And her beauty? You won’t even need to know how to play chess to get the most out of it!
- All the pieces move as in a game of chess, but the objective is to use your knights to save your other pieces which are held captive in certain spaces of the board;
- 40 handcrafted levels with increasing complexity.
- A game of chess without any failure. This is an entirely new game concept for chess enthusiasts and newcomers (you don’t need to know chess to play it);
- Enjoy the beauties and dangers of Viking lands;
- Originally composed soundtracks;
We’ll have a full Chess Knights: Viking Lands review on Xbox soon. In the meantime, you can pick up a copy of the game from the Xbox Store.
Description of the game:
This is an original puzzle game inspired by chess. Using the chess knights, you must move around the chessboard until you reach the squares where your other pieces are, prisoner. Then return to the safe zone without getting captured by enemy pieces to save all your pieces!
