Chess Knight

By EnsenaSoft

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Enjoy playing Chess every night of the week with Chess Knight! Play against the computer with 4 AI levels or 2 players 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.
- Universal version supports iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad devices.

Thanks for buying Chess Knight!

Customer Reviews

Nice but pet peeve...

My most common frustration with any electronic chess game is castling. I can have everything set up to do so, but there is no control or move I can find (I've tried dozens of possibilities that would occur to a user). So then I give up on the game even supporting the castle move, UNTIL THE COMPUTER DOES IT. Talk about unfair! Instant delete for me right there. Other than that, if you are looking for a simple and easy game of chess this app is just fine. With so many options for apps of this nature I feel that this one needs something to separate it from the crowd (customizable board, move animations, something!). But chess is chess... 4/5

Needs work

It's actually pretty nice, but there's a lot holding it back. One thing is it never tells you when (or if) you get in check more expecting you to just know, which can be annoying. Also, when the computer loses it's an instant draw (should be win, people; draws are very rare though they can occur.)
It's also annoying to have it keep telling me I'm trying to make illegal moves just by selecting and deselecting pieces. I realize putting them back in the same spot may not seem valid in a real game, but it is when you change your mind due to realizing that piece actually can't currently move.

Would like to play with friends

can we play chess with friends that are not with you? that would be great. I don't see the option right now. (Like words with friends)
