3D Chess is an electronic board game designed for Windows 8.

A virtual adaptation of the classic two-player strategy board game, 3D chess is developed specifically for Windows 8, bringing the challenge of chess to your computer screen.

The game features a skeuomorphic chessboard with intricate detailing, right down to the wood grain of the table and detailed chess pieces. The 3D graphics highlight the visual enhancements and allows for players to tilt and maneuver the chessboard on an axis to provide gameplay from any vantage point.

The same rules of classic chess are applied in this virtual take on the game, however, players have the option to play against the computer itself, as well as against another human. The game works well with a mouse and even better on touch devices that run Windows 8. It’s easy to change the difficulty level, adjustable from easy for beginners and new players to intermediate for the more advanced and technically skilled. As players become better, the game can be adjusted to meet their demands. Because more challenging games can often take much longer to complete, the option to save games and reload them when ready is available.

The free version of the game is ad-supported, but ads can be removed with an in-app upgrade for a screen that is free from distractions. The game can also be played offline, accessible even without and internet connection.

3D Chess is a great, timeless game and, because of the ease of changing the difficulty level to suit a variety of players, can be recommended for players of all skill levels and expertise.
