3D features

I purchased this with expecting the 3D capabilities to be at least what the pictures show. They do not represent the same features. There are no instructions for set up. Disappointed in the aesthetics. The chess engine is really good but so are competent apps. I thought this would be more feature rich in the end. The help button is useless.

Developer Response ,

Sorry you couldn't find the features. Everything in the screenshots is in the app.

Best chess app!

Thank you for this pleasant and useful chess app. Loots of skins are available. It has also rating for players, etc. The bestest mobile chess app hands on!

Simply great!

I’m getting back into the game after several decades of absence. At this time I’m using the Tudor to guide me through the game. I hope to be playing AI in the near future. This makes chess fun for me again, while honing my limited skills.
