App DescriptionChess Crusades is optimized for Retina Display devices. Although the game will run on older iPhone and iPod Touch devices, you will not receive the full, dynamic experience of Chess Crusades.
We are working hard to find a solution to deliver the same high level of quality to owners of older iOS devices, but until then we recommend playing Chess Crusades on an iPhone 4, an iPod Touch 4th Generation, or an iPad in 2x mode for the full audio and visual experience!

The game of chess was invented sometime back in the 15th Century. Of course, back then the game was played on a simple board. The board was (and still is) made up of 64 dark and light squares arranged in an eight-by-eight square. The goal is to protect your King, while trying to capture your opponents King.
Both Kings are protected by loyal armies consisting of eight pawns, two bishops, two knights, two rooks (also called castles), and a Queen. The aim is to capture your opponent’s King by removing their pieces whilst avoiding the capture of your King.
