Dear Optime Software LLC,

I really love the look and feel of your digital rendition of Chess. I paid for the “premium” version of your game so that I could enjoy its simplistic beauty, undistracted by ads, so I thank you that I am able to do so. This app is beautiful, timeless, and something I can see myself playing until the iPhone 25.
To further improve the experience for each and every one of your customers, I have come up with a few suggestions that, if implemented, will make the experience of using this app even better than it currently is. I thank you in advance for considering the following:
• “Undo” after checkmate
This will allow us to further evaluate our strategies, because we’re all prone to making mistakes and, as a beginner, I may not always see that a checkmate against me is about to take place.
• The ability “Save” a game to rewatch later
Each chess game is a unique piece of art, so it would be great to be able to revisit one of our masterpieces!

Again, I want to thank you for taking the time to read what I have shared.

Best regards, Sam

Great app!

Great design for beginners! The difficulty slider works well to allow you to tailor the gameplay to your ability level. The “undo” function has been very useful; I’ve been using it to see how moves will play out and to undo total blunders to see how the game could have progressed differently.

Overall, I recommend the game. The price of the premium app is also well worth paying to remove the adds.

CHECK it out!!!

Well worth it to me. It appears some of the earlier bugs were fixed. Occasionally, checkmate will occur but it will only register as check, but I think that that is do to it being a lower level (which enables the user to hit undo in order to make a change). At least, that's how I took it! Happy gaming!!! Love it.

4 stars instead of five because of the lack of tutorial.
