Deep Green Chess

By Cocoa Stuff

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


A beautiful and elegant chess application for the casual player.

John Gruber of Daring Fireball: “Without question the best iPhone chess game”.

Playing chess has never been a more pleasant experience. On any platform! Everything is beautifully rendered; from the board and pieces to the way they animate.

Deep Green for iOS is the successor to the multi-award winning Newton version.

Customer Reviews

Deep Green

Deep Green is a stellar game, if not the best of the chess games available anywhere for not much green. If you are looking for a game with brilliant offerings, one of my favorites is the manual setup option, than search no farther.
Please do yourself a favor and pay the price for this game.

Beauty crafted and polished

This chess app is the best I've found. I'm not a strong player - so the lower levels allow me to have some less strenuous matches. I can also ratchet up the brains for a real challenge.

I also appreciate the developer continually not charging again for the added functionality of new screen sizes.

I enjoy using this chess program and am very happy the money I spent went to such a great developer.

(Rotating the iPad is one of the best easter eggs I've seen in iOS for some time - so beautiful and delightful!)

Deserve to be first on top searches for chess games

I find simplicity the strongest point for this app. Good job from the developer on graphics and sound. Attention to detail without overwhelming just as chess is intended to be played.
