Hellchess - new Amiga chess game

I came across this new? chess game available for the Amiga (68k and PPC) / Linux / Windows and Gameboy. Only the Amiga version is available as freeware.

I have not managed to run it under WinUAE (it always seems to hang after you double click on the program icon - but I have not tried too seriously), nor does is seem to work on my A1200 although it does load (this takes quite a while) but whichever version I choose (AGA/ECS/WB) the GFX are corrupted after it finishes loading.

Note that the system reqs state that it requires at least an 030 processor and some fast RAM, so it [probably] won't work on an unexpanded A1200.

more information at http://hellhound.nl/hc/main.html
Also available from Aminet - uploaded in June 2004.

Interesting. The main site says:

After careful deliberation, we've decided to make HellChess free for the masses !

Yes ! You read correctly !
So the windows users get the full version too, next to the GameBoy Advance users !

Get it from the downloads section
NOTE: downloads are disabled for now

The only two downloads available at the moment appear to be the demos (now obsolete?) for Linux and Windows. Oh well. I don't play chess anyhow- I was just curious about the title.

That's great. Amiga version is still available for download from Aminet (I got it from the BTTR mirror yesterday).
