You thought that chess was a civilized, relaxing game but “what’s this?” I hear you cry. “Death Chess 5000” is nothing of the sort. You may think that this appears to be like any other chess, but wait, ‘what’s going on?” your trying to take a piece and look, the screen has changed.
You’re on a battlefield, bombs are being dropped from a helicopter ‘slow down or you’ll get hit’ .... ‘quick into the city where you’ll be safe’. All that just to take a pawn. It’s getting more difficult to take pieces now, your queen has been lost in a space battle and you only just managed to climb a castle under the falling barrels to take a rook.
You can see now why it’s no ordinary chess game!
Once the game has loaded you are given two options. Ordinary Chess or Death Chess 5000.
