Chess Pro is a Chess game by 99Games. $3.99

Chess Pro is tagged as the chess game for advanced players. With more options than the lite version, it will keep you coming back for more. Very easy to pick up and play for experienced chess players and beginners alike. There are many options to how you play your game. Three difficulty levels, Easy, Medium and Hard. Three variants of the game, Regular, Suicide and Losers. One and two player mode as well as three different boards available to play on.

I am very pleased with the graphics of the two 3D boards. The smallest detail in the game are picked up and is visually impressive to play. There is no waiting time in the game as the computer moves straight away. When you tap a button it loads whatever it is with lightning speed. With many competitors in the chess range, I believe the smoothness and look of this game is enough to play the other games out of the water.

The sound is pretty basic, small ring noises are made everytime a piece is moved. Instead of listening to their in-game music there is an option to listen to your own music, which I love. All apps I believe should have this option, there will always be someone who can't stand your music, no matter how good it is.

The menu is well set out and easy to find what you are looking for. The gameplay is pretty simple, after choosing your variants and difficulty level you play the game like you would normally. To move your pieces you click on the piece you wish to move and then circles pop up in the available spots, these blend in well with the board.

This game is for anyone interested or previously played chess. While it is recommended for advanced chess players, it has an easy mode for beginners which isn't on the lite version so I would recommend it to anyone. Great game, visually and for its gameplay.

Gameplay- 8.5/10
Graphics-9.5/10
Sound- 7.5/10
Overall- 8.5/10


I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- Chess Lite

I would like Chess Pro because chess is a game of pure logic with no luck involved and it takes a lifetime to master

I would like chess pro because chess is a game of strategy that requires time an effort to become better at it. It also is a game that requres the player to outsmart their opponent.

I would love to play with someone else that isn't far away (chess with friends) and maybe even win a few games. Who knows if I get good enough I can conquer the world.... ha ha ha..

There's a chance you're qualified to get a Apple iPhone 7.
