Similar in playing style to the popular iPhone game, Chess With Friends, Genesis Chess for Android is a convenient way to play chess both locally and online with a growing number of people from around the world. Play both classic chess and our very own Genesis Chess variant -- which is the main emphasis of this app!

The Genesis Chess variant is a dynamic and fast-paced game where the board starts out empty. Players then proceed to create the environment in which the match takes place by placing new pieces down or moving existing pieces.

-- Pull Notifications
-- Archive Finished Games

    I used this app for months on my old phone. It was a cheap phone, making memory quite scarce, so I went with the smallest chess app I could find. But I ended up loving it because of its straight-forward approach and configurable settings. I never played in 'genesis' mode much, but that's ok because normal mode worked fine. Thanks for developing this! About to put it on my new phone :-)

    I like that I can play my friends across the internet using this app very easily. I also like that it shows which pieces have been captured, which it used to not do. However, since you fixed my one gripe, I gotta give you 5 stars, good job! :D
