The classic strategy game with gorgeous graphics, online gaming and intuitive interface. Beautiful handcrafted board and pieces are showcased in a 3D view with rotation and zoom.

Easy to play but very hard to master. Now you can test your playing skills against the computer on three different levels offline, or online against real people from around the world.

Chess is a two-person board game which simulates a battle between two opposing armies. Chess has been around for more than sixteen hundred years. When it comes to mind games, Chess is undoubtedly at the top of the list.

Customer Reviews

Very disappointing business model

The game is very good looking, and the controls are good as well.
BUT… You can’t even play a full match, you are taken after a couple moves to a buying panel where you need to purchase the game.
You can go back and start a new game if you’d like, but if you can’t finish it, that’s pretty pointless.

Long story short, it’s not a free game with in-app purchase, it’s a payable game that let’s you play 10 moves before it asks you to pay...
