Customer Reviews


Simply awful. Rarely do I feel compelled to write such criticism. The biggest battle is not one's opponent but the interface. The instant zooming to the piece intended to be moved is so severe that the intended destination square is often beyond the extent of what remains visible, requiring a manual zooming out again in order to get to the next stage of completing the move. But then there is yet another task: having to agree to the prompt to make the move itself! In addition, the pieces and board are cluttered with distracting and unnecessary detail. Thinking of myself as of intermediate standard, I found the AI very very weak; but perhaps that was just as well: most of one's time is consumed in making one's chosen move!

Difficult to see this as any good for anyone who's played before and far too clumsy for an enthusiastic novice.

Ban adjournment

This game is good but one major fault ADJOUNMENT your playing well and someone adjourns because they are losing so u don't win that game and don't move up if you sit down to play chess make sure you have time if you lose your connection the game should continue for 5 minutes then that player should lose by absents sort this cowardly behaviour live chess please I will state again anyone who plays chess knows it's a long game if you haven't time don't play if your connection drops tough that's life there are many apps like for instance 8 ball pool if you leave you lose that's it simple if your playing chess and leave you lose that's how It should be

Please get rid of this awful choice
