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.
This game is a great way to improve your game by playing with strangers and your pals. After a few games, it starts to match you with players of your caliber. The more you play, the better you get matched. There's also a nice chat feature in the game. I've made a few friends who are perfect matches and play regularly. Also, there's no rush wth the games. You have five days to make a move if your life gets too busy to focus on the game. There are a lot of ads in the game, sometimes it's like you get an ad screen after every move. Sometiimes the ads dont show up for every few days, it's kinda odd. Anyhow, they aren't manditory, there's always an X to quit the the ads. TL,DR; great games, play with friends or strangers. Cool chat feature to make new pals, espescially if they're awesome partners. Ignore the ads, just quit 'em. Get the app.
I think it is great overall for long term games and playing friends you otherwise wouldn't but.... the only reason l gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is..... Listen, I'm a "put him on the clock" type of player and, it would be nice to put the pressure of a 5-7 minute time limit on em to see how they react in real time. Just saying 😎
CHESS This game is literally the BEST chess game there is... you can play so many people at once and from around the world! It's amazing playing people from all over the world really helps you expand your knowledge on chess as well as better your technique. I've never played in a competitive level but if I did this app would be were I'd practice.
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
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.
