What's New in Version 1.1
Bug fixes and speed increments

Slow, fuzzy graphics
Good idea poorly executed. The graphics aren't up to much and it's slow. Not much variation between units so you have to rely on remembering their rank symbols to play.
a really nice spin on the game of chess! exciting, fun and very well put together.
I enjoy Chess and was after a decent Battle Chess Game, so after seeing the graphic on this page for this game, I was very happy to purchase this game, the graphic look crisp and clear in the screenshots. So imagine my disappointment when I loaded the game and found it very dificult to play the actual game, graphics look bad, and very over the top with special graphic effects. For instance there is so much cloud when you in the Air Mode you cannot hardly see the piences, Okay you can pan and zoom but the cloud is very difficult to see through. Yes you can turn chess symbols on, without this feature you will find it very difficult to distingish the diffeent pieces. When trying to play on the diffrent modes, land, sea and air it is very difficult to see the actual chess board and therefore difficult to move pience. I even found in one of the modes that when I played White, I moved my piece and the AI decided to move one of my other pieces, not perhaps realising that the AI was playing black. Therefore I could move any other piece. Both the black and white pieces also look very similar I could not really play this game to past a few moves so imagine it will be more difficult towards middle game to get to grips as to who is where and what to move.
I think potentially the developer has a good game here, but there needs to be more options for the user to turn off effects or go to to a standard layout board but with the different pieces to represent the different modes, more distinct pieces to tell the different piences, for instances infantry men for pawns, a general for the king, man on a horse for a knight, whatever, but you cannot have tanks for every piece.
Sorry to be critical but I am very disappointed in what could potentially be the best battle chess game on the App Store.
