Download Eugene Chess today and start playing with one of iTunes best Chess apps. With over 100,000 downloads, Eugene is one of the most popular Chess apps on iTunes. Can you defeat him? Download Eugene now and find out.

A good chess player should be able to defeat Eugene with a good game. He starts out with a difficulty of 2, but you can increase it to 3 if he isn't challenging you enough. This will slow Eugene down a bit, especially on devices older than iPhone 4.

Eugene isn't programmed with any pre-programmed openings. This makes for some interesting and non-traditional situations right from the start. Obviously, this also means that Eugene might get into trouble early since his vision isn't as deep as other engines that play by the book. This is good or bad depending on how you like to play.

The speed of Eugene depends primarily on your device. Eugene's brains are basically javascript, the language that powers the web. Apple continues to improve the performance of javascript with each new phone so Eugene will continue to get faster. If you are on a phone older than the iPhone 4 Eugene will probably seem a bit slow.

An actual rating of Eugene is a bit hard to calculate. If someone would like to calculate his actual ELO that would be awesome and I will update this description accordingly. If I had to estimate it I would guess it is maybe 1600. That is really just a guess, however.

Eugene saves your games for future reference. Replay your past games or email them to yourself for further analysis. Additional features of Eugene Chess are:
- Three difficulty levels
- A selection of chess board styles and a variety of piece styles

One clarification to address a few negative reviews this app has received. The cover artwork shows a stylized 3d chess board. This artwork is just that, artwork. The game board itself is a beautiful wooden board with 2d pieces. Please don't leave negative reviews if you are expecting a 3d game. I apologize if my artwork has caused any confusion. Another complain has been the speed of Eugene. Devices older than iPhone 4 will cause Eugene to be slower. As stated earlier, the engine is based on javascript and Apple has made huge improvements with the speed of javascript with each new phone that is released. Eugene will continue to get faster and faster in the future as a result.
