Download Eugene Chess today and start playing with one of iTunes best Chess apps. With over 100,000 downloads, Eugene is one of the most popular Chess apps on iTunes. Can you defeat him? Download Eugene now and find out.

A good chess player should be able to defeat Eugene with a good game. He starts out with a difficulty of 2, but you can increase it to 3 if he isn't challenging you enough. This will slow Eugene down a bit, especially on devices older than iPhone 4.

Eugene isn't programmed with any pre-set openings. This makes for some interesting and non-traditional situations right from the start. Obviously, this also means that Eugene might get into trouble early since his vision isn't as deep as other engines that play by the book.

Eugene's brains are basically javascript, the language that powers the web. Apple continues to improve the performance of javascript with each new phone so Eugene will continue to get faster.

An actual rating of Eugene is a bit hard to calculate. If someone would like to calculate his actual ELO that would be awesome and I will update this description accordingly. If I had to estimate it I would guess it is maybe 1600. That is really just a guess, however.

Title image problem

When starting the app, an image of chessboard appears. Many people complains that this is, unlike the actual game, 3D image. I don't mind that one, but I strongly request the developer to replace the image with AUTHENTIC CHESS STARTING POSITION.

-The board should be rotated 90' in order to follow 'light on the right' rule.

-Black queen should directly face the white queen, and same goes to king against king. Given that the board is placed correctly(unlike in this image), white queen MUST stand on a light square, and black queen on a dark square. It's simplified by a phrase "dress matches the shoes"

Any starting positions which don't follow these 2 rules are INVALID, and become a sufficient reason to cancle the entire match. In short, THIS IS NOT CHESS. An image like this gives impression that the developer didn't study chess well. Please correct it ASAP

iOS 5+ required? Why?

I used to play games all the time but now I can't upgrade because iOS 5+ is not compatible with some of my other apps. Disappointed to have to delete this one.
