Great chess puzzle game

Ok so I play a lot of chess and was at first skeptical but honestly this app is excellent. Sort of like a workout for your "chess brain". Well-thought out puzzles that are tough but doable. If you love chess or are still just learning this is a great app.

Great Chess Game & Awesome Puzzles!

I have been enjoying this app for quite some time now.

The puzzles as they offer a range of difficulty (mate in 1 / mate in 2 / mate in 3).

There is a similar setup for playing a chess game against the AI (3 different levels) but even at the hardest level an average player can score a victory.

Very well done overall!

Tons of puzzles

But most of the puzzles are mate in 1, and super easy
Was kind of hoping for more puzzles as well as more of the more difficult ones
Mate in 1 has the most
Mate in 2 has half that
And mate in 3 has half of even that
Definitely crossing my fingers for an update adding some mate in 4/5 as well as expanding on the current list

In any case, I haven’t played in years and this feels like a decent way to sharpen up
