Atmospheric and Beautiful

The attention to detail and ambience makes this chess game a mile above others. Great options for different game types, challenges and puzzles and levels. The music in background is so relaxing stick some headphones on and off you go into your own world. Great to relax to on a rainy day! Only negative is ads which I hope will go once I purchase full game (a good deal for a few quid) Also is there any updates coming as over a year since last one?

Best Looking Chess Game on iOS

Got this game on current gen console and this mobile app version is exactly the same at a much cheaper price. Stunning visuals, a verb relaxing play. Accompanied by very fitting music and ambience that you would desire in a casual game of chess. Very enjoyable and looks beautiful on the iPhone 7.

Such a shame they are no longer supporting it

This is the best graphics I have seen in a iOS chess game but unfortunately they haven’t updated it in 3 years and non of the purchasing works and it has annoying ads which I can find an option to replace with a payment. I would so be willing to pay for the full bundle. Oh and I’m not convinced multiplayer works as I’m waiting for a game response. But if you want a stand-alone chess game with the default pieces then it’s good.
