Great game, couple suggestions...
I am not the greatest chess player, but I have played and worked with numerous chess games so I could improve my gameplay. The one thing all chess games miss is having a scenario based trainer to learn the minutia of avoiding checkmate, achieving a draw, and checkmating someone with multiple chess piece combinations. Also, white side opening move training so you can learn the best openings, their names, as well as advantages and disadvantages of each opening style. Then obviously provide a black side defensive moves to learn how best to defend yourself, their names, and the advantages and disadvantages for each style. Then, show some tricks on how to checkmate in 4 moves as well as tricks for setting your opponent up and putting pressure on spaces, not to mention the importance of knowing when to capture and not to capture... These additions would entice new and curious chess players to the game and it would make this the best chess game EVER made because it already has every other feature that you look for in a chess title and it would allow for one stop training and playing!
Excellent Chess Engine
I am a novice player who finding it hard to find players near me had not played in years until It occurred to me to download a chess game from the Apple store. I am glad I downloaded Chess Pro. It has a comprehensive set of training mode options, exactly what I need. The interface is intuitive so no learning curve there. Being able to advance the level of difficulty for rated wins is another nice touch. Well done!
My Very Last Review for this App
Great App. I enjoy the constant updates and the effort by developers to continually make it better. Thank you.
However, I believe this is my third favorable review for this same app. There is a message from the app which states that the app's review requests are reset after every update. I am giving one last review simply to get rid of the message.
This "reset" is a flawed practice. Get rid of it - rely on new customers' reviews - because pushing the patience of the app's veteran users will work against you in this forum.
Still the best chess app out there, but even that has limits.
[Edit - July 20, 2015] Another post-game request. Another star.
[Edit - Aug 24, 2015] Another request for review. Another star.
[Edit - Aug 27, 2015] No update, but another request, so here I am. Another star. (Tell me, what is the original point of paying for this one over the Free version if I have constant pop-up requests?)
