Seems nice

Seems like a useful app that I would like to try further. However there is no option to remove ads. I hope you add an IAP to remove them.

Request to fix

When I click the Options button, the option page flashes up for 1 second and returns to the chess board! Same thing happens when Level button is clicked. Can this be fixed ?(I cannot rate this app because of dis functional buttons)
