What's New in Version 3.5.7
Or, for those of you who are more fluent in English than Russian: Dear friends! We’ve made several improvements to the Russian version of the app. We figured things should be up to par now that Mr. Karjakin needs to prepare for the World Championship Finals against Magnus. Hope you have an even better experience now!
New achievements keep popping up every week! Go give it a try!
Oh, and we crushed a bug that was putting us down.
The overall idea that you are playing Magnus Carlsen is brilliant in itself. To be able to play him at different young ages not only helps you get a feel for where you are as a player, but also helps you improve very quickly. I absolutely love this dimension of being able to play Carlsen at different ages; you do feel as if you are actually doing so.
Overall, this is an extraordinary app, and has become my favorite ever created. I cannot wait to see what they develop on this next.
The most amazing chess app you'll ever own!!!
This app is not only instructional, it is addictive- I couldn't put it down!!.. There is something for everyone ,at every level, and I found it immediately fascinating and fun!!.....if I could only have one chess app , it would be this one!, hands down!- thank you, thank you, thank you Magnus Carlsen for being so brilliant and having an app as equally brilliant!!!.... Ciao bello!
Probably the best chess app out there. It teaches you how to play and slowly increases in difficulty. But for the people who aren't really good, ages 7-12 can be really difficult to grasp. There are in-betweens that let you slowly progress up, but you have to pay for those levels. If there were just a few more in-between levels, it would be so much better. A great app though recommended to all who play chess or want to!
