Haven't played in while. Tried out half a dozen others getting back into it. This one is still the best and has been for years. Try their free one if you're not sure. Fun, clean, challenging. Definitely worth paying for.
Nice, clean, and simple. Although the tutor definitely needs some work on giving you an idea of what you should be doing, as it just highlights a single piece and nothing more. I would also like to be able to hide the chess logo during the game.
For example to resign I have to press Menu/pic/resign/yes, I think it is too deep and not convenient.
The graphics are good. They're simple, yet that's all they need to be. I feel that when you buy a chess game like this, you're really buying the AI. You're looking for a good CPU opposition to test yourself against. I found the AI in this game to be painfully inconsistent. Usually it's dead easy to beat, then other times it can be hard to beat, even on the easiest level. As soon as you get ahead though, it starts just handing over pieces with no challenge at all. It makes the wins feel a whole lot less earned.
Wouldnt mind a few more board and piece themes, and a quick "resign and restart" button. Like another user said, I know when Im beat, so can we speed up the transition from match to match, at least on casual? I shouldnt have to watch the computer gloat every time I want to restart. But thanks for developing a great app! Also, is it feasible to display the name of the openings, so us noobs can begin to recognize them more easily? I still feel like im just flinging pieces about trying to respond to my opponents development...
If next update comes with all opening , middle game, end game with various played games in one app then it can attract many downloads. Very good for chess Learning, training, Practice purpose. One may not win many times with pro level 12 rating 2100 but don't mind at all. Expecting further ELO rating levels. Thanks a lot.
2.55: Improves hints against lower level CPU players. Now shows early ELO estimate after 1st pro match, rather than 5th.
