Chess Ultra




Chess Ultra 


A digital download code for Chess Ultra on the Nintendo Switch was provided to Family Friendly Gaming. All we had to do was pay for the publishing of a press release concerning the game's release. There is obviously an expectation that the game would be played and a review would be written. Family Friendly Gaming sure spends a lot on helping other companies garner success. I would think all kinds of advertisements would come in to show gratitude. I supposed my expectations are too high.

Chess Ultra has a Single Game, Tournament, Challenges, Tutorials, Options, Challenges, and Paid DLC. There is no physical copy version of Chess Ultra on the Nintendo Switch at this time. Or at least not one I was able to find in my research. The challenges in Chess Ultra are Historic, Mate in 1, Mate in 2, Mate in 3, Mate in 4, Mate in 5, Mate in 6, and Mate in 7. I messed around with Mate in 1, and there are ten challenges.

When a game is played it can be played in four locations, there are four piece types, and they are made in three materials. Timers can be implemented and two family members can play one another in Chess Ultra. The music in Chess Ultra is very nice. The music in Chess Ultra is soothing, relaxing, and sleep inducing. I wanted to nap after listening to the music in Chess Ultra.

Chess Ultra is on a variety of different systems. I was so hoping to see someone lick the nasty tasting Nintendo Switch cartridge for Chess Ultra, I also thought it would be cool for Family Friendly Gaming to do an Unboxing video of Chess Ultra. Sadly those things can not happen at this exact moment in history. Maybe in the future. Plenty of other companies have enacted change after Family Friendly Gaming brought up the topic.

If you are looking for a downloadable only chess game on the Nintendo Switch then you might want to check out Chess Ultra. Ripstone has been making chess games for some years now. They know how to design one. I would love to see some cool chess set pieces in Chess Ultra. Maybe a Super Mario Bros chess set. That would make perfect sense on the Nintendo Switch to me. If it happens Family Friendly Gaming should be paid royalty fees since we copyrighted the idea right here.
