Relaxed21's Review of Chess

First it was great then once I gave it a 5 star review it would show adds for other games and no matter if I pressed the x or not it wouldn’t go back to the chess app. So irritating I deleted off my phone after 20 minutes

Terrible

Worst app ever. Don’t waste your time. Why call it chess when all you can do is watch advertisements for dumb games and Verizon? Do you guys even know how to play chess? Kings can’t be within one square away from each other. Stalemates happen even during checkmates. Very glitchy game. Do not download.

Bad moves

Wouldn’t let the king move backwards! Other reviews mentioned legal moves being blocked... silly me, I tried it anyway. No good. Can’t play the game when it’s not allowed.

Whenever I’m one or two moves away from doing an inescapable checkmate, it says “draw by stalemate” or something similar

Ads started playing during game

Interstitial ads started playing mid game. One showed pornography. Not acceptable.

Hardcore porn ad on pop up!

My 5 year old was playing this app and an advertisement with hardcore pornography popped up. Totally unacceptable. Shame on this developer.

LautrecOfCarim's Review of Chess

I have two main complaints about this app. First, on the chess side. I'm rated around 1800 USCF and tried playing on moderate difficulty levels. The thing about the AI is that it always plays very strong tactically, probably 2200+. Meaning it will never make a mistake that loses material, nor will it ever fail to capitalize on one of your own mistakes. On the other hand it is extremely weak positionally, I would estimate below 1200 level. And it plays absolutely garbage openings, worse than most human beginners. The result is that it will always give you a huge positional advantage in the opening, but then begin defending extremely accurately making it very difficult to actually win a game. It does not play anything remotely similar to a human player and creates lots of frustrating games. Second, the pop-up ads are the worst. I frequently got full screen pop-up ads for other apps that would not have an "X" on the screen to close them, and also wouldn't go away on their own. So I would be unable to get past the ad and to access the chess app at all. The only way would be to forcibly close the app and restart it, and hope that a different ad would appear. This completely ruins the user experience, independently of how the program actually plays. 1 star out of 5 for these reasons.

Fun but I can’t get a checkmate

It’s really good and fun but I cannot get a checkmate. I guess it is because I am not good enough at chess

I don’t like it

It wouldn’t let me move my piece of choice and made me move where computer won. I would like it to have more options to move. That’s why I love the game of chess, because it’s a game of strategy and choice.
