I really enjoy this app. Sometimes I find it very hard to put down. I just know I'll do better on the next puzzle! I do wish that, after a puzzle is solved, I could reverse some black moves and try different responses. Sometimes it seems black may have made a poor choice, resulting in the mate.

Challenging, but not impossible

I've been working one or two if these puzzles every evening for several months. I typically spend between 10 and 30 minutes figuring each puzzle out. Very engaging!
