Chessmate allows anyone to dive into a game of chess. Whether you’re a beginner (yes, I’m talking about you) or a pro (hmm, debatable), the variety of game modes will challenge you with its witty AI. Play solo, or play against a friend (or against yourself if you don’t have any)… or even let an AI play against another AI. Go grab some popcorn.

It is as beautiful as it is witty, and minimalistic as it is fun. A scrollable history view captures your previous moves, and the wonderful haptics keep you engaged.

This is chess like you’ve always known it, but better, way better. I hope you enjoy Chessmate as much as I did making it!

What’s New

Version 1.1

The Bishop of Canterbury once visited my school. He was clearly an impostor; he never once walked diagonally... Bad jokes aside, this update aims to satisfy the most prominent requests.

- Added support for castling
- Fixed layout issues on some devices where the cross button wouldn't be displayed and the history view was displaced, preventing users quitting a match
- Fixed a few crashes

If you enjoy using Chessmate and feel generous, please consider leaving a review. It helps with delivering great continued support, and in more ways than you can imagine. Thank you! :)

To the creator

I would like to see an option to flip the opposite teams orientation and and option to show you where you can and can’t go but other than that it looks beautiful.
