5.0 out of 5 stars Good 19 Nov 2013

Well presented and simple to use chess game. You only get a very basic board that looks like a checkers board (you have to buy others) but it's a lovely little game that's easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Chess app! 29 Sep 2013

A top Chess app! I played this on my Sony PS Vita, but on the Kindle`s 7" screen it really comes alive. Purchased the whole extra package as well, you get a lovely Easter Island and a Halloween set! Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars for visual players 20 Sep 2013
By James
Verified Purchase
I was looking for top quality visuals...and I found them! The graphics are absolutely stunning, however this is not for you if you are buying it because it is free. The free set is just like a checkers set. I immediately purchased the Williams set for 63 pence and this allowed me to choose the set in a polished marble finish, wood, or metal. You can choose between 3 locations, library, penthouse or museum. You can also buy extra difficulty levels to the ones initially installed for about a pound and I bought a challenges upgrade for the same sort of price as I enjoyed them so much! In all, I am not a professional by any standard but I didn't mind spending a couple of pounds to get the look and creative capacities this game offers. If you want something free and two dimensional look elsewhere - I see this as a value for money investment!! There are lots of additional sets to choose in future in the app shop if I ever feel like spending a few extra pence on them too. This is the first game I have enjoyed in years...reminds me of my childhood CD-Rom chessmaster 2000. Beautifully designed app!!
