Thank you

I wrote in an email to the devs when they took the app off the App Store, pretty much begging them to keep supporting it. Tall Chess made a boring game my friends and family would play all the time an absolute joy for me. I’ve already become better than them thanks to the hard AI.

Best Chess App Ever

Tall Chess is absolutely and always the best chess mobile app. I'm so glad it's still on the AppStore. It's amazing how it isn't at the top of the results when I search "chess" on the AppStore. I search "chess" and all I get is — literally — junk. More people should know about TALL CHESS!!!!

It would be a good game if they make it so you can tap on the piece you want to move and then tap the square you want to move it to. They made it so you have to drag the piece to the square you want but sometimes it doesn’t fall on that square. But I like how the board takes up the whole screen.
I’ll give it 5 stars if they make it tap to move.
