GET RID OF ADS YOU CAN'T BACK OUT OF, OR I'M GIVING A 1☆ and Horrible RATING -○-○-○-○-○- have been using this for almost five years. initial attraction was the graphics. chess engine is pretty good, although it's possible to accurately predict what the engine will do for certain scenarios. still... this is my favorite chess app. The ads... to have to use airplane mode to disable/stop the app from connecting to the net to download ad files is really annoying... ya shouldn't have to go that far... and yes, buying the paid version would resolve that... but- it's still annoying, at best.
I think this is better than most chess Apps. I've noticed that if you play the same level a few times the CPU is using the same move so it becomes predictable. I'm not a pro but I'd like to learn more moves. Can AI add a few more moves to very it? I personally prefer Chessmaster but I haven't seen an App so I feel this is the next best thing . The ads don't bother me as I understand that's how it's funded and so free to use.
Playing at top level, pro mode I barely won few matches against computer from the day I install it, unlike similar apps where my winning ratio is much higher. Here it's difficult to escape from error coz it won't give you any second chance. However it works as ultra defensive conservative pattern with lack of bold and innovative moves. Its almost all the moves are predictable and very accurate. Thus increase your mental strength to sustain pressure for serious matches. However It seriously needed helpfull analytical buttons during the game.
If you are new to chess or a master -this program will give you a challenge. Very user friendly. I have used dozens of chess programs on pc's and on my phone, and still this is one of my favorites. If your a very exsperianced player -Playing at level 12 in 5min blitz, you have to use anti computer tactics and pawn fortresses to win. You can push the engine to the horizon effect. At this stage it can get it's self into problems and loose on time. But for me that is part of the fun. Fantastic!!!!
Finding it excellent so far. Its play has certain quirks which I think I may in time learn to turn against it. The only improvement I can think of would be a 'set up position' feature, so that, for instance, I could have another go when I've thrown away a winning position.
Amazing app! Other major chess apps try to charge you for a subscription but this one includes different levels of CPU difficulty, customizable chess boards, and game replay and coaching. Has anything you could ever want from a chess app. Very solid game. Nice job devs!
