Great variety from real games Has hundreds of two to three move puzzles that really get your head thinking (all that I've done so far). It is great that all these stem from real games so they can be reviewed in full if you think it was a clever checkmate. Going on from 2-3 move checkmates, the 4 to 10 move ones will be really difficult (but I managed a cheeky ten move one the other day!) Maybe I'm getting better already.
Nice But the chess engine is buggy. Check MiO 07. The solution doesn't match the situation. It is plain wrong. Or I have played chess wrong all my life. MiO 10: how is that correct move?? I am beginning to think I have missed the objective of the game. I can't read French. :-\
Nice graphics, solid styling, nice touch that problems can be created. MIO 007 has blacks previous move missing ie pawn - b7 allowing en passant capture for mate. maybe more issues are to be found but so far excellent. Previous review commenting on IMO 010 needs to revisit the board the solution is sound
BEAUTIFUL (more) than 5 stars!!!!! So Good. A ripper, fantastic, shows how many puzzles you have, where they're from, choice of difficulty. Heaps of fun-thankyou for not poisoning with permissions and greedy adds and popups and all the other slimy things that LESSER programmers/developers do to ruin their apps.
Great application. This is a great practical app, which I use every day. The only issue I can see is that the engine sometimes does not play the strongest moves and thus allows false solutions like 5 move solutions to 7 move problems or fails to defend against a weaker attempt. Possible features that would be useful: ability to mark nice problems and copy/paste/save of individual positions. There was a nice feature that allowed the user to share a problem through the link to the chessdiags site, but it's gone.
Nice Great app. A few incorrect problems with no solution and a few duplicates.
v3.0 : small changes to let other apps access to the puzzle database. It will allow plugins like the chessdiags livewallpaper which should be released soon.
