Might just be my play style but the tests feel too rigid and calculating to my tastes. Though AI may seek a specific move among a myriad among other options it fails to give credit when a user makes moves that create advantages beyond it's myopic scope. That and AI makes cringe worthy moves like awkwardly sacrificing a Queen to capture an enemy Queen for no piece or spatial advantages. These types of moves are the last thing new players should have in mind while playing.
I've learned a lot in just a few days. The only thing is that sometimes I don't understand why the apposing side moves a certain way in response to my play.
It's not clear how to use this app or how to interpret what the various arrows and indicators that it uses mean. It seems there are a lot of features in this app but I have no idea what they do. It is also unclear how the scoring works and what exercise I should be doing when and how well I am doing in them. I also keep getting an error message saying my score isn't updated and that I need to sleep on it but after her 24 hours goes by I get the same message.
I've played my best chest in my early teens in the junior high chess club I am 57 now and really has lost grasp of the game after all these years.. I feel this game is really getting me back on track and probably will be until you best chest shape that I've ever been in... I love this app
I have found the way the App builds the complexity of the game really helpful. I sometimes get confused by the graphics when I make a wrong move but overall it is a great App
Even the free version will drastically improve your chess skills, tactical understanding, and overall abilities. Best free chess learning app I've found - and I've tried them all.
