Awesome Chess Quickie!

Love this quick game... I am really getting back into enjoying regular chess but it takes too long. This game is perfect for when you just crave the mental stimulation of chess but really don't have the time to play a full fledge chess game.
In this game I love to make quick moves and in a few minutes it's time to play another match.
1. Add a Knight (but maybe that will take away from the speed of this game). Or have the option to play with ALL Knights instead of all Rooks.
2. Add a few more tougher levels.

Best game ever

It is a quick and easy simple pocket game to play. I would wish you could create your own board but it wouldn't go on a real leaderboard and maybe add a feature to play real chess. But still 5 stars no doubt.
