Good for a freebie

Perfectly usable, simple chess game and very good for the price (ie nix).
No prob with ads at all unless you're clumsy.
Only a couple of issues- it sometimes crashes if you reopen it. It can think it had checkmated you and irreversibly stop the game one move from mate (preventing take back and ruining ending exploration). It has limited difficulty variability (estimated highest rating ?1850 to 2000- ie stronger than 90% of players and ideal for allegro for anyone)

Works for my novice son & I

I haven't used any other chess apps, but this app has worked flawlessly, I am slowly re-exploring the love of chess with my son, this app allows single or multiplayer and is simple enough for a novice.

They play nice music

Yes, great game all that I wanted and thank you very much for making the game available to anyone who created the game. <3 lots of love from lenny. :)))) and hope everything gets upgraded more.
