Good but needs some fixing I love to play chess . So it's the first cause I love this game . The game is also very good . It's easy to use and the two modes casual and pro delighted me. In casual you can play a very relaxed game to learn how to play and in pro you can strengthen your self and can check how strong are you. Despite of most good things it has something bad. The AI has many cracks specially in between lv4-7. Long playing time will make it easy . So it should be fixed.
Its Chess! Can't really get Chess wrong. Runs smooth and you can play Chess! If you couldn't play Chess this app wouldn't be that great but you can play Chess therefore the chess game is good for playing Chess ... But not peeling oranges. If you wanted an orange peeling app then this isn't the app for you! Gave it four stars because the Chess games it gives me are all impossible ( even on easy ) running on a 1:10 win ratio. Good for Chess though (if you wanted to play Chess). Not a good app for making mango chutney!
Please fix en passant rules I loved this game until your AI cheated. The AI moved the F2 pawn to F4 to put my king (G5) in check with that piece (fine). But when i went to capture the pawn en passant with my G4 pawn to remove the check your engine would not allow me to move the pawn. Very frustrating losing because the engine does not recognise a legal move. Please fix the engine to enable en passant moves that legally remove a check. Update.

Great game, awful ad behavior. I love the game, but I had to uninstall it because the ads were eating up my processor cycles and slowing my phone down, even when only running in the background. That is unacceptable. It's a shame that such a great game has such annoying ads. If the ads were only a little less infuriating, I might have kept the game, which means small ad revenue, as opposed to NO ad revenue now. Too bad.
Eh. It's chess. Which is a plus. But the difficulty settings are complete trash. I have an ELO of about 1650 currently. It used to be higher, but I've let myself slip over the years. And on level one, I have destroyed the AI, and then the next game on level one, the AI has destroyed me. It might as well be random shuffle for skill of AI. I'll probably be looking into a new chess app. That said, the layout of the board and the user interface is a thing of beauty. That's what kept it from a one star rating.
this is great for those who are just getting started in learning how to play. Agree that it is well thought out. Specially like the help button that not only gives hints on what pieces to move, but also the direction in which they should move. the combination is very helpful to those who have never played before
