Chess - the unrivalled champion of strategy games has been attracting players of all ages for centuries. Check vs. Mate takes up the mission of adapting the time honoured classic for the 21st century, seeking to breathe new life into the board-game without abandoning the essential concepts that have made it so timeless.
Queen from B4 to E7, checkmate. While normally the game would be finished here with little fanfare, Check vs. Mate takes the moment of victory a step further. The queen suddenly comes to life and gracefully glides across the game board towards the King, a victorious smirk adorning her face. As she approaches the King's square her hands begin to faintly glow, then suddenly plumes of fire spring forth from her outstretched hands and engulf the King, leaving nothing more than a pile of ashes on the square formerly occupied by one of the competing rulers of the checkered kingdom. Now that's checkmate!
