  • Great App W/Bug Jan 30, 2013

    By B.FisherImNot
    Excellent aid in sharpening the weak points in your chess skills, as well as, an excellent guide for beginners! However, (& this is the only negative) there is a bug in the 3rd set that causes an error when checkmate is executed, stating the move not a checkmate and moving multiple pieces that have no bearing what-so-ever on the checkmate. Even use of the 'Hint' declares exact execution, yet continues to state the move to be invalid. Still an all around, excellent app, and I am still enjoying it!

    It's good to be playing again after 30 years. The set ups are a challenge.

  • Great drilling Dec 2, 2013

    By Bucyrus-Guy
    As a novice I found the drills very helpful, and paid the extra $3 or so for 162 more examples. YOU ONLY GET 8 himts without buying more, so be aware of that.

    Puzzle # 53 is impossible to win. It won't let any of my pieces move to get a ckeck mate in 1 move.
  • Loved it Mar 1, 2020

    By apalix
    Loved this game and paid to unlock it. I don’t mind that the author unlocked it for the public, but I DO mind having to watch a commercial every other game, especially after I paid for it. Doubt I’ll play it again unless that is changed

    it's ok but if hints are over we can't get that is why it is not very nice

    Program may be good, but most annoying full page ads after every two problems spoiled it for me. Uninstalling for good.
  • Good practice Dec 24, 2012

    By BriNbigD
    Game is fine, but you should be able to unlock all of the four levels for one purchase.

    This game has a few bugs in it... I've seen the game make countless mistakes when it comes to moving pieces. Great concept though

  • Nice!!! Oct 24, 2012

    By N_uu_B
    Its just one movement, but this is not easy or obvious.

    By David Jones
    Great app to keep the 'chess brain' working when you don't have time to play a whole game. I don't mind the adds because sometimes you might see one that's interesting.
  • Apr 10, 2015

    By Tom Boshoff
    Lots of adds, no other features, does exactly what it says, mate in one puzzles.
  • Fun but ugly Oct 19, 2012

    By drhundertwasser
    Fun game but kind of ugly interface with cheesy music. Turning off the music also turns off the sound effects, separating those preferences would be an improvement. Also the hint dots are annoying, perhaps they go away at higher levels?
  • Does not respect silent mode Jan 30, 2014

    By Frisby
    The game is fine, but when I launched it, it started blaring some kind of intro music even though my phone is set to silent mode. It’s rather embarrassing to have this happen in an otherwise quiet venue (e.g., library or hospital waiting room).

    I give it a 5 for doing what it says it does. Then I subtract 1 because as soon as you make the right move, the trophy cup appears, hiding the board, and it moves to either the next problem or a full screen ad. There is no chance to review your move or the board once you make the right move. Unlike others who say this won't help your game, I think it will because it reinforces checking everything on the board. I subtract 1 more for the in your face ads, but I also give them credit for not interrupting play.

    Sometimes it has you kill the queen ? No sense at all
  • Good game, but muting sound doesn't work Oct 24, 2012

    By roncli
    Chess problems are really good, but I can't keep an application that produces sound when I have it muted.
