Simply the Best Experience

Don't know a lot about Chess... Just purchased this App for a change... Believe me its an addiction... The Suicide Mode is Crazy man, it just keeps me glued to my iPhone... Just loved the UIs, they really complemented the chess experience. I just found out there is something called Opening Book and to my surprise this App supports it!!!

Trust me its really worths its price and a try!!!

A spinning chess board?

Unbelievable. I love setting up games. Playing myself or a friend etc. In 2 player the board SPINS COMPLETELY AROUND on EVERY MOVE. Just totally disorienting, distracting. After awhile and especially in long games you just have to look away. Like their other products they have to show you three (3!) logos on the way in on two separate screens so plan on spending a lot of time wading through the credits if you try to use it a lot. There's potential here but I can't imagine this game was designed by someone who likes to play chess. But tChess instead.

Portable Chess, without the mess!

Chess Pro is a solid choice, it has been a joy to play over the past week or so.

To start off, there is a great assorment of options. Chess players of any experience level can jump right in and customize the game to their own style. You can choose between a fast CPU (average 5 seconds a move), a strong CPU (average 2 minutes and 30 seconds a move), and everywhere in between. You even have the option to have all legal moves shown to you while playing, which is always a plus if you are still learning the game (or simply don't want to think).

On top of that, we have three different variants of chess to play. You can play a regular game of chess, with standard rules. You can play a suicide variant, where you have to be the first to lose all your pieces to the opponent, with the king holding no significance. And finally you can play a losers variant, which is the suicide variant with the king having significance, and normal check/checkmate rules applying.

You can also customize both your playing board and pieces, choosing between wood, metallic, and 2D themes. Depending on your tastes, you can have the game suit your preferences without a problem.

You can run multiple games on one device with the 5 save slots you are given, so if you want to play with a friend, you can postpone your game with the CPU and start a new multiplayer game, going back to the original game at anytime.

Speaking of multiplayer, you can indeed play a game with another person on the same device with a pass-and-play style. When you finish making your move, you pass the device to the other player. It would be nice to see an option where you don't have to pass the device, but could have the device between the two players like a normal chess board. Currently that isn't possible since the board rotates between each turn. It would also be nice to see a local Wi-Fi and online multiplayer implemented in future updates.

For those of you that just want to watch a game of chess play out, there is a chess demo where both sides are controlled by the CPU and will act according to the difficulty you set.

This game has numerous other features that make it simply fantastic. There is an in-game hint system that can guide you through a game, if needed. On top of that you can undo past moves if you find out your current strategy isn't the best. The list goes on and on, but I won't continue to bore you any further. Go out and give Chess Pro a try and see the rest for yourself.
