Okay first off, game is phenomenal. Runs very smooth, nice animations, cool gameplay. You can tell the developers put some thought into the game. My only request is that your able to save games so you can share with your friends later. Please do that so you can show off some victories when you view someone’s profile. Oh, and I paid for the app after playing with it after 5 minutes. I haven’t ever done that for anything else! That shows how good of an app you have here.

Developer Response ,

Tnx for the feedback and support. Game history will be in our next updates. It is already on our developing map. Kind regards, Chess Universe

Great game! Small fix need added

I love the customization aspect of the game. I love a lot about the game but I think there should be daily refreshes on ammo and I think there shouldn’t be as many dud chests. You play so many games back to back to get a single key just to unlock a dud chest. And if the chest isn’t a dud you get 3-5 cards out towards something that needs 125 cards to fully unlock. Progression is ridiculously slow unless you spend money which makes it seem like that’s what the game wants more than anything. Also there needs to be an option in the settings to have to double click an area to confirm moving a piece. I’ve lost too many pieces and games due to accidentally clicking a square one space over leaving my queen wide open for getting taken. I have big fingers and the largest iPhone on the market and yet I still keep clicking the wrong space. You need to add a double click setting to move.

New update

UPDATE: Every game I now play takes me to the App Store mid game. Even when I don’t push on anything while waiting for my opponent to make a move. The lock still ticks and I have been taken to the App Store 5 times during an end game and lost so much time. Hate this update!

I’ve been playing chess with this app daily for a long time now. Today there has been a big update which I was excited for at first but then became really frustrated. I won multiple games and the rating hasn’t changed at all. Moreover, when I try to play online it’s taking forever to find a player and when they do they don’t end up playing. I’m pretty sure the majority of people I was paired with today weren’t real people. You updated way to early. There’s a lot of glitches,bugs, and slow loading time that makes me want to rage quit. Fix the app asap.
