- Different difficulty levels
- Very complez
- Export/Import games as FEN/PGN
- Poor graphics
- No clock
Chess for Android allows you to play against the computer or against real friends (there's no online version so far). The game accepts moves through the screentouch, the trackball or through the keyboard. You can check games played earlier to learn from mistakes. Games can also be saved, exported or imported as FEN/PGN to continue from other devices. One of its main features is the option to turn the game into a “magnetic chessboard” and to play against a real friend. Chess for Android also supports the Universal Chess Interface (UCI). The graphics could definitely be improved; it’s a bit dull from our point of view and we’re not keen on green color used for the “move coach”. Plus, there’s no clock for controlling the time each move takes. It’s insanely difficult to beat the computer, but there are different levels to choose from.
Chess for Android has been developed by Aart Bik, an emerging individual developer who also has launched other puzzle games on the Market such as Checkers for Android and Reversi for Android, but Chess for Android is still his most successful game.
If you’re a chess-lover and you like the challenge of playing against a tough computer opponent or your real friends (physically), then give it a go. We think there’s room for improvement and there are certainly better chess games on the market.
The application supports the Universal Chess Interface (UCI) and Chess Engine Communication Protocol (WinBoard and XBoard), which allows users to play against more powerful third party engines or even play tournaments between engines. Engine setup features pondering, infinite analysis, hash tables, multiple threads, endgame tablebases, and opening test suites. A list of available engines is given at http://www.aartbik.com/MISC/eng.html

Can't beat it on level one. Hoe discouraging that is. Figured about level four or five would be about my level of play but this is not recommended for the casual player!!!
Nice game with less memory space. .
Totally waste of time by using this game
It's graphics are very low quality.
