  • Good Game 👍🏾 but... Dec 10, 2017

    By SophiaRules11
    I have been looking for chess apps for so so long and then I found this amazing app. However, the app need to give players more time to think and develop their pieces. Moreover, The app would say checkmate or stalemate and I could move my king or protect it. Furthermore, for me, there are a few glitches. Like when I click a piece it won’t move that piece. So please try to fix that too. But, overall a very good chess app that really makes me think.

  • Question to Tech support Jul 3, 2018

    By Dwlo
    Occasionally I get into a scenario when playing against the computer. The computer prevents me from making a different move, by repeatedly making the same move, over and over and over, into infinity! This usually happens as I am about to get the upper hand in the game. The computer has alternative moves available, but gets stuck on repeat! I'm either forced to make an inferior move that the computer likes, putting me at a disadvantage, or start another game. Is this legal? Is there a maximum number of times that a identical move can be made by both players? Please explain this phenomenon, or fix it! Problem 2, this App constantly trying to sell me Checkers. Please stop this. I don't want to purchase Checkers!

  • Amazing super fun game but i do have a complaint Jul 22, 2020

    By cyh b. cdzfzexyvib
    This is such a great game and is so fun and so easy to learn but there is one thing. When you play with the robot the robot makes his moves to quick so it’s kind of hard that way. But other than that this is such a good game and it’s so fun and even today me and my brother played it and it was my first time and after i played two rounds i emedietly downloaded it so it’s a great game and it’s so fun and but also i think they should give limited hints beacause you could cheat if you did the hints the whole round thank you for reading this review this is such a great game and i would recommend it thank you #stayhome

  • Not great. Not bad. Needs .... Jul 15, 2018

    By Dawoj
    .... a few tweaks: 1) the undo function should not go back two moves, but just one; 2) there should be a re-do function; 3) the volume should adjust with the device volume selector (rather than only on/off); 4) the piece movement should be faster; 5) the computer should stop the game at stalemate. That said, the graphics are nice. However, and this is a bigger fix, the AI is very predictable and plays essentially the same game all the time, even on “Hard.” Def needs some work there. With all that, this is very good ... for beginners and novices.

  • This game cheats during stalemates Apr 9, 2019

    By Takomsa
    Update: It just did it again! It had the upper hand and I had 4 back and forth moves (8 total moves) with no stalemate. Then I was able to corner 2 of its 4 remaining pieces, corner it’s king in the corner and it tried to block with its last remaining rook. I took the rook and it immediately declared a stalemate! There were NO repetitive moves during the last 40 moves of the game and I was ONE MOVE from forcing Checkmate with its only remaining piece, it’s king. This game cheats! If this game has me on the run and there’s only a few pieces left, I have actually made over FIFTY back and forth moves and it NEVER calls or allows for a stalemate to be declared. However, if I have the computer on the run, if the computer is down to 1 or 2 pieces left, after just a few moves, sometimes 3 TOTAL moves (mine and the computer totaled) in any direction, it declares a stalemate. Those moves normally aren’t repetitive moves like a real stalemate should be. On numerous occasions, I’ve had the upper hand and have been moving to box in or row compress the computer’s king into checkmate when the computer calls a stalemate even though there have been zero repetitive movements. (This has been happening with the difficulty setting at normal.) In other words, this game cheats when it’s losing. The developer of this app needs to fix this issue.

  • The App refuses to loose gracefully Jun 3, 2019

    By MTtoVAPrepper89
    The App chooses its moves based on the probability of success. If it determines that it can not win, the App will attempt to put you in a revolving door of “check” positions or move for a stalemate. I can understand the stalemate as in a tournament, a stalemate at least allows for each player to receive a point. At least in the tournaments I have played in. However, having the App move it’s pieces continuously back and forth without being able to win, is pointless. It just makes the game go on and on unending. I’m not Mathew Broderick and this isn’t a game of Global ThermoNuclear War. There shouldn’t be a no win situation or at least a no stalemate situation. The App needs to be programmed to lose as much as it is programmed to win. If the pieces the App has to use can not put the player into checkmate, the App should not be able to continually put the player into “check” basically forcing a new game to be started.

  • Quiz is no logically accurate Sep 10, 2018

    By hugoadan
    In almost any case scenario presented by the quiz mode, check can be done upon the player’s king. For that matter, it is not possible to logically win in a two move strategy. If I do a first move, computer can check my king. Then, I have to bring my king to safety, and lose my two move chance. Secondly, To win in a two move sequence, I have to guess accurately. what is the next move the computer will do? This is often enough a random move. That means I have a random, and not a logical chance to win. Accuracy is premium when playing chess. Quizzes do not present an accurate scenario to win in a two move strategy. The app also charge money to give you fixed clues. It is a scam.

  • Easy: great introduction to the Chess universe Jun 9, 2020

    By RedBaron00001
    First, you can play a Very easy opponent. (Many games seem to make the easiest level too difficult, tacitly discouraging further play.) Second, it introduces the players to algebraic notation and thereby gives the capability to study classic games. (Don’t have a pencil to take down moves? Don’t worry! Most phones can take screenshots to “backup” the games you’ve played.)

  • Kinda cool Mar 21, 2018

    By Me4640
    Never understood Chess, got this app through checkers, learning a lot quickly on easy setting! I like it. Always felt bad about being ignorant when it comes to chess, like Rosetta Stone, I'm learning little by little. Glad to have it, if you would like to learn the game try it, lose for an hour and then you still aren't a chess master, but you will be closer to being one! Rock on!

    This game is awesome and the way they let you chose either realistic or picture-y and stuff. This gam lets you think like you actually play with another person so then you can learn from this game! I recommend for s m r t people and people who like being challenged

  • Can we get a rule book? Aug 25, 2017

    By Rin LeStrange
    Every SINGLE time I have the board cleared except the white king, and am about to catch him, it shows me "stalemate". Like, it wouldn't be if you gave me two more minutes?! I'm sure there's some kind of rule I'm missing, since before downloading the app my chess knowledge consisted of 'protect your king and kill theirs', but there's no rule book or explanation or anything. It's really frustrating me. It seems the only time I can win is if there's at least one other white piece on the board.

  • A Dirty Opponent Dec 19, 2019

    By Keith Otis
    Very annoy hen it begins repeating moves, such as perpetual check. Has a weak end game , so you will eventually win if you hang in !the reviews which complain that the app causes unfair stalemates. They don’t know the game. This is a much better version of chess than the one bundled in the Mac O/S. My only specific comment is that except on the most advanced setting, the app has a weak endgame. So if you are losing, don’t give up. It may make a blunder.

  • Great game Oct 29, 2017

    By jack attack
    I’m the best chess player in my school and it’s k-8 and I owe all of that to this game but I don’t like the constant ads that pop up 75% of the time after you play a match and ditto to the puzzles that purposely try to make you buy hints, don’t if you want to get better look the puzzle over then choose your move you won’t get better by using hints.

  • Good game but annoying Apr 5, 2018

    By Jsjx68788
    Great game you can change the board and pieces to look differently plus there’s a hint option which helps me learn. Unfortunately I can’t play it anymore because for no reason it will stop the game and say “stalemate”. I had 2 bishops, 2 rooks, my queen, and 2 pawns whereas the computer only had its king left. I checkmated the king, “Stalemate” pops up an I can’t finish the game. Too annoying and it happened for the last time. Now deleting this app for the many other chess apps

  • Fun, but glitchy Jun 7, 2019

    By Wasting My Thyme
    For some reason if you try to play this game while on the phone, the screen fails to align properly. It responds as though you’ve tapped half an inch away or so from where you actually did. You can’t adjust settings or move pieces pretty much at all. This makes the game impossible to play if you’re chatting on the phone at the same time.

  • Good, could be better Jun 25, 2020

    By 55416
    Good graphics, no unnecessary bells and whistles, but the program has annoying flaws. The computer exhibits very little variety in openings, makes silly mistakes even in “hard” mode, and in the endgame it makes nonsensical moves, like having the opposing king head for a corner instead of trying to block an advancing pawn. Not for serious players, I’m afraid.

  • The computer plays cowardly Mar 16, 2020

    By ratlsnk
    The graphics are great; however, when the computer is about to be checkmated, 9 times out of 10 it will stalemate the game. The game cheats. I’ve downloaded a different chess app and will probably end up deleting this app tho I really like these graphics. Not sure but I do know all the stalemates are getting old.

  • Idiotic computer in this game Dec 2, 2019

    By eatabagodcks
    Chess is a great game but has rules. This ridiculous computer on this specific game fails to comprehend that the same move repeated three times is stalemate. This stupid game played the same move 100 times continuing to put me in check because mate for it was imminent. Not an intelligent chess computer. It also continued the game when only kings remained on the board. It’s time to retool the computer’s thinking or get out of the chess biz. There are more issues than this, these two are just glaring deficiencies that make this game maddening.

  • Poorly programmed Apr 9, 2019

    By Boyydz69
    - Doesn’t allow under-promotion. - Opening book fails completely as White; typical opening on Hard: 1 Nc3 e5 2 Nd5 c6 3 Ne3 d5 with enormous advantage for Black. (Plays a decent closed Ruy Lopez as Black, but handles the middlegame poorly.) - Doesn’t defend tenaciously on Hard; often allows easy mates rather than playing on a piece down; often allows easy traps. - These comments are based on about 25 games on No Time Limit.

  • Glitches May 12, 2019

    By cant send without nickname
    There’s a number of glitches I’ve noticed on here. Especially in the puzzles. Right now I see puzzle 593 has glitch that makes it impossible to solve. When I move pawn e2-e4, the black king disappears, taken by a black pawn. I cannot find any other way to beat the level either.

  • No choice to pick when the pawn reaches the end of the board May 26, 2019

    By avinashreddy23
    It’s very dumb , when the pawn reaches the other end of the board it automatically gives Queen , instead we should have a choice to pick in between queen,rook,Bishop and knight. I guess this can be fixed with an update.

  • Frustrating computer Jun 17, 2020

    By The Lizard Wizard 999
    Whoever programmed the computer for this chess app is insane. The opponent is petty and will repeat certain moves to avoid allowing you to make a proper move. I sometimes legitimately hate this app, but it can still be fun.
