First off.ive played and bought about every chess app there is.this has the best 3d controls and look ive seen. It has some standard options to take back moves and replay games. Besides that.there isnt much. Photoscape 3d Text more. The ugly.there are currently only 3 difficulty levels.id guess im around 1500 at most and i beat the second level with little trouble.I havent tried the hardest level but for 7 dollars im gonna need some options in difficulty. I havent found a way to export games or set up a board. Im assuming and hoping the game will get updates in the future to increase options. #edit: I found an option to setup the board but its difficult and a bit clunky So in the end we have a pretty game with good controls and function but so few other options.
Just not worth the price compared to shredder chess. However I plan on keeping this app to see what becomes of it.
