Customer Reviews

Awesome Chess App

Used in conjunction with a couple of good tactics books, this app is really helping me to improve my game.
The toggle on off suggestions and threats assist is really useful. What is a stand out in this app compared to others, is the ability to try out various moves at a specific point in the game and see what the result is. You can return to the original game and continue or experiment and return again later. No saving involved. Its an automatic feature called branching. You can even branch off a branch!
Difficult to explain but it is a great feature if you want to explore all the possibilities at any one given point in the game. Good analysis of your games too, when you go back and review them. Well worth the money.

Fantastic for all abilities

Having not played chess since I was a child I was sceptical that I could even complete a game. This is very addictive. I was able to look up how all the pieces moved, as well as some special moves I'd never heard of, and play with "suggested moves" on for the first few games. It highlighted threats for me and let me undo moves when I made silly mistakes. I've now started beating the computer and have been able to notch up the difficulty level after only a couple of weeks (although I'm sure I'll never get to the upper levels). The graphics are basic but pertinent. I now have a proper chess board to play real people.I would highly recommend this.

Addictive & useful for all levels of players.

Was good at chess at 7 gave it up. Thought I'd re-familiarise myself, it might improve strategic thinking.

Tried free version, it was addictive, & began to beat the basic levels of play, with help from 'coach' - which uses simple & intuitive visual indications of preferable moves, & of where threats lie.

You can learn from your mistakes and explore alternatives, go back & re-think your last few moves, or re-load last game to explore all the angles, & learn. It is like having a good coach to practice with. Am learning as a child learns, intuitively, with guidance.

There are many levels of expertise to play against, and different modes to play in. As a learner, I have used the coaching mode, but there are many more.

Coaching mode is helpful with performance anxiety, like riding your bike with stabilisers, & teaches better planning by example.

For higher level players there are also many of the famous world championship games to replay and figure out, as well as world-level opponent. It is a full-featured program and you are unlikely to outgrow it.
