Chess


★ Top Developer (awarded 2013) ★

Same as our "Chess Free", but no Ads.

"Chess" is currently the highest ranked paid chess on Android (at time of writing), from the paid chess programs listed.

Featuring:

-- 12 play levels (Novice->Expert)
This uses intelligent weakening for lower levels. Good for beginners.

-- Casual and Pro modes (NEW!)

Two different play modes allow you to choose how much help the game gives you, and stats are kept separate for both.

-- Uses Treebeard Chess engine
(as used in Microsoft's MSN Chess). This has a unique ""human-like"" style.

-- Chess Tutor
This option shows a recommended piece to move. This will help you think about how you should play without telling you exactly what move to make. This is good for developing chess skill while also helping you avoid simple mistakes.

-- ""Show CPU Thinking"" option for level 3+
A unique feature, great for learning chess. This shows which moves the AI is considering.

-- Chess Stats, Timers, Hints and Handicaps
Track your career history against each level and improve your rating

-- Achievements, Leaderboards and Cloud save for stats! (NEW!)
Available when logging in with your Google+ account

-- Provides ELO Rating based on your results against CPU in Pro Mode (NEW!)

Landscape mode available for tablets. (NEW!)

Best chess app! Have you guys thought of adding challenges? Like " mate in one (or two)" or "find mate in the lowest number of moves" and you could get a score depending on how few moves it took you. Just a idea.

Incredible app Highly customizable, great interface, and amazing design. I wish it has online multiplayer so I could challenge my friends, but even without that feature this app is outstanding.

Love it! My only complaint is the fact that it doesn't seem to adhere to the proper data storage structure prescribed by Google for Android apps (instead storing info in its own "AI Factory Stats" folder, which is very irksome!).
