Mostly good

I downloaded this app a few weeks ago and so far it beats the original Apple Watch chess app, the app that comes with the watch doesn’t even let you play chess on it but this one is just simple and fun. The only bad thing is that the board is tiny on the phone and sometimes on the watch when you try to go to the home screen, or move a player that is in a cluster of other pieces it moves the wrong player or moves yours not where you want it to go. I have had it freeze only once. But overall it is the best chess app for Apple Watch

Let me see the final game board

Edit: The developer has fixed my problem and several others’ as well. This developer listens to feedback! It’s everything I want in a chess watch app now, and only a dollar. Rating changed from 3 stars to 5!

Previous review: This app looks nice and works well, but once you or the opponent get checkmate or stalemate, the game instantly puts up a huge banner in front of your game, informing you of that fact. Then, once you tap the message, it immediately brings you back to the start screen to start another game. I want to look at the final game board to review how many pieces each player had left, what I could have done differently if I lost, etc. Give us the option to view the final game board before exiting, and I will raise my review!

It is fun, but not for advanced players

First of all, congratulations to the developers on creating this game. It’s totally awesome to play chess on my Apple Watch. I am not really such a great player, but I am a very enthusiastic player. That being said, the engine that runs the game is not so strong. Even on the hardest level, I am able to win without much trouble. (My rating is somewhere around 1400.) If you like Chess, you absolutely should buy this app. It’s only $.99. But don’t expect a high level game. Someone else had suggested, and I agree, there should be an “back“ button because the screen is so small that I sometimes move the piece by accident.
