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!)

-- 2 player hot-seat
Play against your friends!

-- 8 Chess Boards and 7 Chess Piece Sets

-- Review game mode
Step back through your game and see how you won!

-- Load/Save game files & PGN Export

-- Designed for both Tablet and Phone
Landscape mode available for tablets. (NEW!)

Best chess app This is the best chess game available in playstore. One more request, can you add sharing for completed games that are saved.

I got the free version of this before I knew better - bad mistake. Loaded with ads and drains your battery faster than a USB can charge it. But this version has nothing but the good stuff: - Nice interface - Good algorithm - Light battery use - Lots of control over difficulty A great program for beginner (it will teach you the game) through class player (I'm class B and it can kick my butt with levels to spare). Only thing that would make this better is more control over "style" for AI. Only has Casual and Pro. Would be great to have a few "personalities" or even controls for adjusting Aggressiveness vs. Positional Play. Still, can't take a star off: for 99 cents, you won't do better than this.

Hard Even in practice mode this game is ruthless. It beats me in less than 6 moves every time.
