This app has also a FREE Version with the same name. Search it on the store or visit https://metatransapps.com
This is the open source Bagatur Chess Engine with its own GUI (graphical user interface).
It is not as strong as Stockfish, Komodo, AlphaZero or Leela Chess Zero, but is strong enough to beat a grandmaster.
It has 16 strength levels. From level 5, it could show the search information.
The ELO rating is about 3000 and the program has a unique playing style.
In general, the application demonstrates an application of artificial intelligence (AI) into the domain of chess.
To clarify, it is not an OEX chess engine and other chess engines cannot be imported into the GUI.
