What's New in Version 2.32
Great game, couple suggestions...
I am not the greatest chess player, but I have played and worked with numerous chess games so I could improve my gameplay. The one thing all chess games miss is having a scenario based trainer to learn the minutia of avoiding checkmate, achieving a draw, and checkmating someone with multiple chess piece combinations. Also, white side opening move training so you can learn the best openings, their names, as well as advantages and disadvantages of each opening style. Then obviously provide a black side defensive moves to learn how best to defend yourself, their names, and the advantages and disadvantages for each style. Then, show some tricks on how to checkmate in 4 moves as well as tricks for setting your opponent up and putting pressure on spaces, not to mention the importance of knowing when to capture and not to capture... These additions would entice new and curious chess players to the game and it would make this the best chess game EVER made because it already has every other feature that you look for in a chess title and it would allow for one stop training and playing!
Problems since last update
Have enjoyed this app for the past 5-6 months, however since last update the "new" game icon on the bottom right does not work. When I go to the menu and select new game I am asked if I want to bpplay as white or black, works as white, but when I chose black, the app will restart. Tried to go to website and seek help, but there was no place to register and will not allow me to start a new topic. Please fix.
Update: new update has resolved the problems. Rating back up to 5 stars. Best chess app.
A Fine App
I have several apps, both paid and free, and this one is one of my favorites. It plays well without crashes and can be cranked up to impossible strength. I also like an app that looks good as to me it improves the atmosphere in which the Royal Game is played; this one certainly fits the bill. An excellent app in all regards and a fine job by the design team. I do wish the app would resign at times when the situation is hopeless but this is not a deal breaker for me.
