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

Best chess app I have found! Though, AI Factory, you could have put a link on the free version for the full version. I had to hunt for it. Other than that it's perfect!

Best chess app This is the best chess game available in playstore. Can you please add a confirm to move for pro level. Sometimes, accidentally the moves are happening because of touch. It's really frustrating to lose because of that. One more request, can you add sharing for completed games that are saved?
