The combination of Chess and the Battle Royale genre is unusual enough, even before role-playing and strategy are laid on top of them. But Auto Brawl Chess: Battle Royale manages to pull it off, though not as triumphantly as one might hope. The rules of the battle aren't clearly explained and players are sort of thrown in the deep end without a lot of information about the factions and classes at their fingertips. It takes a few matches to even begin to grasp the conditions of victory. There are some performance and stability issues, though, so that could also impact your enjoyment of the game. The developer has acknowledged these and says it is working hard to fix them.

That will turn a lot of players away quickly. If you stick around and do start to get a sense of the strategy involved, though, there's a unique sort of Battle Royale game at work here. It's smarter than the run-and-gun style so many others use.And if the developers can squash the bugs and make the game more newcomer friendly, it could be a welcome addition to the genre.
