Description

Chess in your Android

Chess is a board game for two players. It is played on a square board, made of 64 smaller squares, with eight squares on each side. Each player starts with sixteen pieces: eight pawns, two knights, two bishops, two rooks, one queen and one king. The goal of the game is for each player to try and checkmate the king of the opponent. Checkmate is a threat ('check') to the opposing king which no move can stop. It ends the game.

During the game the two opponents take turns to move one of their pieces to a different square of the board. One player ('White') has pieces of a light color; the other player ('Black') has pieces of a dark color. There are rules about how pieces move, and about taking the opponent's pieces off the board. The player with white pieces always makes the first move. Because of this, White has a small advantage, and wins more often than Black in tournament games.

Chess is popular and is often played in competitions called chess tournaments. It is enjoyed in many countries, and is a national hobby in Russia.

Features:

- five different themes
- seven levels of difficulty
- two players mode
- game assistant (Helper)
- realistic graphics
- sound effects
- small size

No advanced options, learning tips or game analysis here, just a simple, beautiful chess game, with perfect chess 'behavior'. I do wish we could pause or save a game though, and buy an ad-free version, which would be nice. For the record, don't believe the comments and complaints about the game frequently ending with stalemate (a draw) in this app; when it does it's because it's really a draw. Full Review

Really Good Game! And for those who are complaining about the stalemate, look up what a stalemate is. Maybe add the rules for beginners, allow you to skip ahead to at least hard and maybe add some other versions like Crazy House Chess and Chess 960. Full Review

The gameplay is perfect. But the opposing pieces don't contrast each other enough for me to be able to see what the hell I'm doing. It's hard to play when all the pieces look the same. The AI part of this works great but it's ugly so it gets bad review because the options aren't there for me to contrast the pieces I have to uninstall. Full Review

Good chess game Those who complains with draws are nothing but a fool. This one of the best game that will really make you feel angry because its good in making a draw when its about to lose. Actually I am copying its certain opening moves or a counter for a certain opening. Im already at the grandmaster but can't beat it. Full Review

Remove the Draw please. It's good I really like it but there's still that. When a game is close to ending, instead of having a complete close of the game it ends in a draw. This is annoying and feels cheap, it makes me feel cheated. So please remove the draw completely or give us the option in settings to decide whether we'll allow the A.I to pull this kind of thing or not. Other than that great job love it! Thank you.

When I won the hard level it showed that I had unlocked the expert level. Then I didn't play in the expert level and quited to play some time later. When I came back later it showed I didn't open the expert level. Is this a bug or something but I don't care anymore , I don't want to play it anymore. Furthermore it doesn't have review option in the game, and pause button. Full Review

Awful. Played the first game, brought them down to their king where I had almost a full set and the game was called a draw. Do not waste your time Full Review

AWESOME! The only down side for me is that I've never played chess, and maybe u can add an actuall helped to help me learn. That would make me write all good about the game next time Full Review

Till level 5, the game is too easy like a bait. After that, at candidate master level, whenever I reach victory point, the game declares a draw. Thrice it cheated that way and then, once, it killed my pawns without any possibility. If a computer bug cheats to win, the game is pointless. Full Review

Suggestions: If you could add a feature which would enable 2 players to play on 2 different mobile the same game against each other either by Wi-Fi or internet. It's hectic to play the game on same mobile by switching the chances. Full Review

Good game but I hate the draw when you have the king trapped. Also the expert level is insanely difficult. The AI seems to have a counter for EVERYTHING. It seems like it knows how its going to deafeat you as soon as the game starts. It always sets you up to fail. Full Review

A very good chess game indeed... It has a large number of levels which help to strengthen skills. All good except the fact that there is no versus mode. The AI plays pretty well in my opinion Full Review

Even after winning the Master level, the next level is still locked. Also when it is in unfavourable position, it tries to draw the game by repeating same moves. Full Review

I liked the game until the 3rd level. I practically had everyone still on the board, I take out his last Pawn leaving him with the King and it was a draw not letting me proceed. Full Review

The AI is perfect... I can win and not feel as if I were "allowed" to win... or I can lose, and learn with the harder settings... Some AI just win, which is too frustrating... These settings are perfect. the look and sound are also good. Great game. Full Review

It's a interesting and challenging game and I loved that the levels were becoming harder and harder. But when at last the king was left , I wanted to defeat the king but afterwards it showed draw. Anyway I liked the game very much

I do not like it the first level it is really hard and I play for the school team. the apponents king won't stop moving around because it is computer. If you are learning how to play chess then this is not the app you want. Full Review

I love the game but i got up to the level after expert and i didn't see the name of the level ( candidate something ) so i went back to check the name and it started me back at middle level. Everything i had just beaten was locked. When i click on those levels it says (to unlock this level you must beat the previous ) but i already did ... Full Review

I'll give you 5 stars, if you: add more tablets, more background, more pieces colours, And... 3D graphics for playing against a friend ( 2 players ) 'cause 2D graphics in that mode is not correct, if you do that, i'll gladly give you 5 stars, at this moment 3 stars is fine Full Review

I was playing it on hard mode and I was about to win, I had cleared out all the opponents pieces except the king, and I had a bunch of pieces left. I was going for turning my pawns into queens, and I was maybe six moves from checkmate, and then the game just said it was a draw and automatically ended the round, so I couldn't progress to the harder matches. TLDR; AI needs work. Full Review

The difficulty spike between the easy level and medium level was a bit steep. I am stuck on hard level and there are at least 4 more levels to unlock, which will probably be of increasing difficulty. Full Review

This game is absolutely garbage. Every time I get "check mated" I always look and see ways that I could get out of it and out of any other pieces line of attack. And the ads are just ridiculous every move I made I'd get an ad Full Review

It doesn't clarify what rules it's using. I think it's a variant bc sometimes it doesn't let me move how I should be able to and it doesn't allow castling. As someone who is trying to learn, this is very frustrating. Full Review

This is very bad game. At last the king was left and i was trying to defeat him then suddenly it shows that the game draws . I don't like it. I am requesting the developers to correct the problem so that we can play the game. Thanks. Full Review

The game works perfectly. The reason people are ending up in draws is because they are cornering the king to the point the game has no move it can legally make. Full Review

Graphics are fine, controls are fine, but it doesn't have consistent official or house rules. It doesn't follow the rules. It calls draw on when you've checkmate it in a corner or it only has a king a on the board but will call checkmate if it does this to you, allows itself to capture pieces to uncheck but not you. It's like I'm playing a five year-old who knows the rules and will throw a fit anytime I don't go with their sudden changes in the rules. It also prevents you from making moves half the time saying you can't go somewhere that you can, forcing you to move where it wants you Full Review
