Customer Reviews

Not bad but concerns

Not that bad of a game it's definitely good practice, but there are no instructions. For example, I can't figure out how to castle and even when I'm able to I've tried everything. But the computer seems to be able to do it fine occasionally. Also the draws are sometimes 10 moves or 50 moves. Pretty sure the rules say it's 25 moved when all the pieces but the king are gone too.

Excellently Simplistic

What you'll find in this app is exactly what you'd want from a chess app; a simple, realistic, and easy to use chess game. The user interface is excellent, I've never had a difficult time controlling or organizing my chess pieces. A must have app for any intellectual looking for a good game of chess.

I wish they didn't push the premium version

Also, sometimes when I have to toggle out of a game to answer the telephone or surf the net, the game resets itself. I would like to pick up where I left off upon returning to the game.
