Enjoy playing Chess every night of the week with Chess Knight Free! Play against the computer with 4 AI levels or 2 player/multiplayer modes against a friend.

Chess is a board game played between two players. It is played on a chessboard, which is a square-checkered board with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. At the beginning of the game each player controls sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. The object of the game is to checkmate the opponent's king, whereby the king is under immediate attack (in "check") and there is no way to remove or defend it from attack on the next move.

★ Both one and two player modes.
★ Fun AI with 4 levels (easy, medium, hard and expert).
★ Great background music and sounds.

We hope you enjoy Chess Knight Free! To get a version with background music and support our development you can buy the complete version.

Enables 2-player games

I was interested in 2-player game mode, as a way to examine and analyze chess games. The graphics were clear, and the undo button worked, except once the end of the game was reached. Draw by repetition was claimed too early. The reason this program didn’t suit my needs is that it does not display a list of the games played. I did not evaluate the strength of the chess engine.

castle in check?

I have to immediately question any program that allows you to castle when king is in check…

Not very good

Better than the built-in Chess app, but not by much. Game play is choppy, graphics make the pieces hard to recognize, the sounds are hoakie, and the AI is not very smart at all. It’s OK for the price.
