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.

Track your career history against each level and improve your rating
