Recent member. Playing with others is good but when I want a quick game I want to play against a computer. When I try and play either easy, intermediate or expert it doesn't work. I play my first move and then the computer just sits there thinking and never plays. I know the rules of chess but I'd like some intermediate tutorials on strategy, classic techniques etc. Surely this could be woven into the app. I'd pay for the ad free premium version if it included features like that.
I understand that ads are part of what allows a developer to offer a game for free, and I think there's nothing wrong with that. However, as a user of the game, I feel like there are too many ads. After each move that I submit I see at least two ads, and I feel like I've even had to close out 3 on a few occassions. This seems like overkill and honestly makes me sick of playing the game to an extent. Idk. Ads are legit, I'm not one of those people that can't deal with getting a game for free when it comes with ads, but there's just too many imo.
The big complaint? The price on the "remove ads" prompt was different than the actual price. This thing needs an update. Could use some visual refreshing mostly, flat ui would put it right back into relevancy. Gameplay/interface controls are great, back end I'm sure is perfectly set up. Just needs new face
Excellent array of features, especially the ability to review and analyze previous games, both yours and those of other players. The only minor gripe is when stepping back through a game, any touch on the screen other than on the back and forth arrows will send you directly to the furthest point in the game, causing you to lose your spot. Again, not a major concern, but it would be nice if it was fixed. Also, it would be great if you could start each game replay from the beginning instead of having to step every conpleted game backwards.
Update: works even better on my S7. The game is worthy and easy to operate. It had a couple issues with my old LG but no crashes. I like that the background music is the same as Ndemic's Plague, Inc. makes for a creepy sidebar that makes you think of how final any move you make can be. Thanks for the great app
This clean, simple program allows you to play chess against one or more opponents (Both friend and stranger.). My family loves to play each other throughout the week, using the program to chat while we play. It even tracks your wins and losses, both total and against a given opponent. My family and I love it. I recommend it to anyone with a love of chess. SM.
