Chessmaster's Challenge is a standalone game based on its main project, emphasizing more in combat mechanics. The game is made in arcade-like design in mind, meaning it has a little story and more combats where the player will be tested in a series of battles and ultimately defeat the Chessmaster who invited them in his own game of "twisted chess of chaos". Player will be given four party members--each with their unique abilities--and an ample supply to get started in Hall of Pawnsmoor, where they have to beat all the challenges Chessmaster has set up for his challengers. Along your way in completing the challenges in Hall of Pawnsmoor, player will find more characters (to date, up to 64 characters are obtainable including the initial party members) via completing achievements and/or performing certain feats.

Need a hint?
Now, right before the gateway into the challenges, there is an NPC who will gladly greet player and relay information about each challenge path. They hold important hints about the secrets and what player should expect in the end of challenge path. You might want to take a note on what they may tell you, just in case you want to unlock certain achievements or to avoid certain encounters...
Some particular artifacts...
Introduced in this version "Sidegrade artifacts" that are obtainable via unlocked achievements related to certain characters. Each artifact has properties derived from the character which it originated from, giving another broad range of setups and playstyles of anyone wearing it.
