5-stars: "Almost THE BEST Brain-game I've seen - This game is fantastic on many levels."

5-stars: "Wonderful implementation - Wow- thankful. I love the way the bishops move in a teleport like fashion across the lines. (try the game to see what I mean). Truly great execution. If this is all original hats off and even if derivative the execution is top notch. I love how the game is not bloated either. It's under 1MB. Love it."

Customer Reviews

Great visual concept

This is an excellent adaption of chess, but what it gains from the design and execution, it loses from complexity. Possible moves are very difficult to understand without the "preview". Auto-rotation sphere after computer turn is confusing, too quick and should toggled on/off. Flipping pieces which are on the underside is cute but adds to the confusion.
