IG Fun releases Battle Chess

IG Fun has announced the release of Battle Chess in the UK.

Battle Chess is an animated chess game with three levels of difficulty vs. the computer or against a friend. Chess gurus or neophytes can play as Aslan’s army, or use the evil White Witch’s array of creatures on a 2D or 3D board. To celebrate the game’s release, IG Fun will be supporting the British Chess Championships, which run from July 29th though August 11th. They say there will be an “exciting stunt” involving Battle Chess, but details are currently under wraps.

“I am really excited that Battle Chess is our first launch to both the media and our customers in the UK. We are really pleased to be supporting such a reputable chess event,” said Gulshan David, Key Account Manager Europe at IG Fun. “This game is one of a number of UK launches IG Fun will be announcing over the coming months. There are not many chess games available for mobile phones and ‘Battle Chess’ is just what the customers’ looking for.”

The game is available from Vodafone, 3, and Orange in the UK.
