This app, apart from its incongruous naming, covers all of the major usability and background (it is very economical with mobile data) features you'll require to players frequently. Oh, by the by, the sound it makes to notify you of various moves made by an opponent, is very well designed. Better in fact than some message waiting tones purpose built for a phone.
Major problem: even after paying for the full app a lot of people don't get it. No response from developers. Other problems: No forced draws. Even when the game cannot be won by either side (such as both sides only having a king left) it will not force a draw. Some people use this to wait until they can force a win with a time out victory. Other than that it's brilliant.
It was everything OK I was happy with the 4 free concurrent games. Suddenly something happened the server crashed during the creation of one game and now the games are de facto 3. Probably it thinks the crashes game as an active.
The game is great until you need support. It seems the owners are willing to collect dues but not provide any support or even reply to emails if anything is needed. I'd recommend downloading something else with recent and active support.
I was stopped to make a valid move. There is a bug when opponent give u check you have to move you king. 😂
Can't challenge a selected Google Play Games friend. Only randoms. So it's useless if you want to play against people you know. Notifications stopped working once I got the paid version. Seriously? I paid for your game, and the payment broke the game. Even reinstalling didn't fix it. Notifications flat out don't work at all.
