I never thought I'd like playing chess. But this game got me hooked for hours. The computer player us a good freakin match!

A lot of reviews are saying this is a hard game at the lower levels. It's actually very beatable even at the mid levels. At level 4 it will still lose it's Queen over another piece. A chess game should make blunders on the lower levels to mimic a beginner playing another beginner. It's very hard for a new player to learn if they can't win a few. Based on the reviews perhaps the first few levels should be easier.

Plays like a human! A clutzy human below level 5, an increasinly skilful human as the levels increase. YMMV, however, an average club player would pro

Simple setup with multiple difficulties. No bugs or other issues...if you want to play chess on your phone this is the app to use.

I like it, but if you are not good at chess I would not get. Even on easy it is still a little to hard.

I'm relatively new at this game and keep getting slaughtered on level 1 out of 10. This SHOULD be a challenging game, but not so much on level 1.

It's okay to have on the phone, I'll say that much.
