Добавьте ещё шахматных задач пожалуйста!

Есть проблемы

1. Меняющаяся или движущаяся реклама очень отвлекает. Понято, что вы её совсем не уберёте, так пусть она хотя бы статичная будет.
2. Добавьте возможность регулировать уровень сложности не только бегунком , но ещё и просто вводить число. С маленького экрана очень неудобно.
