Enjoy playing Chess every night of the week with Chess Knight! Play against the computer with 4 AI levels or 2 players against a friend.

Chess is a board game played between two players. It is played on a chessboard, which is a square-checkered board with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. At the beginning of the game each player controls sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. The object of the game is to checkmate the opponent's king, whereby the king is under immediate attack (in "check") and there is no way to remove or defend it from attack on the next move.

- Both one and two player modes.
- Fun AI with 4 levels (easy, medium, hard and expert).
- Great background music and sounds.
- Universal version supports iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad devices.

Thanks for buying Chess Knight!

Poor writing by programmer


You will rue the day you play this game. The programmer never loses. If you make a simple move and are ahead he calls draw. This is ridiculous. I had four queens and he calls draw. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. This game is a joke. I am not great but if I take one move back he calls draw. This is a worthless game. I have beaten the program rarely as the games are 90% draws Do not download this game. It is poorly designed. I play this game to see the frequency of draws the programmers logic that incorrectly calls a draw. I laugh at the lack of thinking put into this chess game. I just played games. Five were called draws by programmers logic. No estoy estupido. I moved my rook from inside file. He moved king on his king's rank. I moved back my took to outside file. No threat of check or mate. He calls draw. Do not download poor programming. I had oppenent king on first file. Above him my bishop. Above him my queen. He calls draw. Any move he is checkmated do not get any version of this waste of time

Nice but pet peeve...


My most common frustration with any electronic chess game is castling. I can have everything set up to do so, but there is no control or move I can find (I've tried dozens of possibilities that would occur to a user). So then I give up on the game even supporting the castle move, UNTIL THE COMPUTER DOES IT. Talk about unfair! Instant delete for me right there. Other than that, if you are looking for a simple and easy game of chess this app is just fine. With so many options for apps of this nature I feel that this one needs something to separate it from the crowd (customizable board, move animations, something!). But chess is chess... 4/5

Needs work

It's actually pretty nice, but there's a lot holding it back. One thing is it never tells you when (or if) you get in check more expecting you to just know, which can be annoying. Also, when the computer loses it's an instant draw (should be win, people; draws are very rare though they can occur.)
It's also annoying to have it keep telling me I'm trying to make illegal moves just by selecting and deselecting pieces. I realize putting them back in the same spot may not seem valid in a real game, but it is when you change your mind due to realizing that piece actually can't currently move.
