Kjempefint grensesnitt, og generelt en super app!
Practice of Skill
I installed this game just about yesterday (Sunday, 2nd of December), and I have just realized how well this game has been laid out. The accuracy and the information of Magnus’s transformation through his career is accurate, especially the difficulty of Chess when attempting to play chess.
I personally love to play chess, I played chess since I was 10 or 11, now I’m 14 (not considering myself as a pro player), and I play chess against my parents and siblings for fun. My older brother won a few silver and gold trophies from tournaments at his middle school years, along with high school years. I almost won against him by removing his queen, but he managed to beat me with two towers, how tragic, lol.
Positive side: I have already mentioned my words above, I love the concept of this application. It can also be used to train the player’s ability to play chess against harder opponents. Nice work!
Negative side: Like I said, I only played this application for one day, and this is amazing. It will take time for me to find the negative side of this game, so I’m going to wait and play.
Although, I did discover a bug, or a crash... and that’s when I try to log in with my Facebook account, I press continue, then when it tries to log me in, the application crashes. Find the solution to that problem, thanks.
And that concludes my review! I will edit this review if I find anything interesting.
On the other hand, thanks!
