Try Online Chess. It's a JavaScript-based chess game on this site. It should work on iPhone and maybe other cell phones.

Decent Chess game (I lost) work on the java programing to make it run smoother. (java logo keeps popping up for me every time I make a move)

I played the chess game. It was fairly decent and the game seemed to make some strange moves such as missing opportunities and not setting up an attack strategy. I played the Beginner level. A few times it took a long time between moves and then it finally froze up and I had to kill the window.

Nice and easy.

A real simple version of the worlds favourite game to test your brains. A good time pass too. The computer responses to your moves are amazingly quick and quite smart too.. The best part of this gaming tool is its simplicity. An anytime, anywhere flash tool. And best game to have in your mobile.

The game was a little basic. It reminded me of the first cheese games that were available on the computer. It worked and I was able to play a full game of chess against the computer. Sometimes it was a little slow to load the computer's move, but it wasn't a huge problem. I didn't really like the red circles that indicated where the previous piece had just moved from. It might be better to have that only last for a few seconds instead of staying up until the next move. I would also like maybe a green circle that indicates what piece is in danger. Overall, a good basic game.

This one is the best game so far in my opinion. However, I would probably use more sounds than clicking and what sounds like a cow mooing.

anonymous
Sun, 04 Oct 2009 02:05:23 +0000

systems appears to be solid, sounds were a bit off-putting, but not bad. logic was good enough to beat an amateur player. no real glaring issues

anonymous
Mon, 05 Oct 2009 02:04:27 +0000

The game is easy enough to play. If you have an understanding of how the game is played that is. If you have dial up it will take time for the pieces to move so its better if you have dsl or better.

Playing on the easy, the computer missed really obvious moves.

Actually, I enjoy playing Flash games.
Wed, 07 Oct 2009 02:06:36 +0000

there appears to be an error on the page. when i chose ""expert"" it permit me to play, but subsequently froze. it would not permit me to make a move. also, find it hard to track when my opponent moved. yes i can see from where they moved, but since it's not 3-d there needs to be something to confirm their move.

ensure that the link is working. make your web site secure and disclose this.

It was nice and interesting to play.

anonymous
Fri, 09 Oct 2009 02:09:43 +0000

The graphics are very rough, even for a free game, but the sounds effects are somewhat amusing. After the first five or six moves they get a bit annoying though. The mooing was a good effect however, and the comp is suitably tough on expert. I really wish the restart button worked because then I could have played around with the other settings more.

That was fun, thanks =)
Sat, 10 Oct 2009 02:05:48 +0000

The game quickly loads in between turns making it very fast paced and fun. I enjoyed it and have book marked it in my fav. game folder.

:-)
Mon, 12 Oct 2009 02:02:55 +0000

This is a good version of chess, especially since it is free. Thanks for referring me to this game.

In beginner mode the game takes way too long to think, the delay makes it seem like it's not beginner mode. Otherwise, it's accurate

anonymous
Wed, 14 Oct 2009 02:08:03 +0000

The chess game is kind of old technology isn't it? The sound is not good either.

Works fine for a basic chess program. Easy to use and sounds are a plus.

Tue, 20 Oct 2009 02:09:26 +0000

Nice game. As I was playing, the computer's ""thinking time"" was very slow. At one point I was up in the game and it stopped cold turkey. I would suggest trying to find something to make the game run smoother.

anonymous
Mon, 26 Oct 2009 02:57:15 +0000

you are playing against the computer. The graphics are only okay. The beginner level has the computer making foolish moves. This is not a very good program to learn chess on

anonymous
Tue, 27 Oct 2009 03:04:17 +0000

I did not like this game. It would not let me make some obvious legal moves. Some of the sounds effects were really ridiculous. I would definitely not play this game if I was a serious player.

anonymous

I'd use something besides a moo for when am in check

anonymous
Sun, 01 Nov 2009 03:03:29 +0000

very nice, simple chess game. It would be nice to maybe see a little more animation, like to see where the computer player is moving. Their pieces jump so fast.

I pinned the beginner level AI's Knight and Rook with my Bishop, and the AI just ended up freezing. After waiting about 3 minutes I gave up.

this game is intersting. really am enjoying this.

The strategy of the AI player was very good. The graphics were boring and the AI sometimes took a while to move.

anonymous
Sat, 07 Nov 2009 04:01:24 +0000

The game was fun.... the sound effects were very, very weird though. All and all I have to say it was a good, fun game to play.

anonymous
Sun, 08 Nov 2009 04:03:28 +0000

game interface is simple and graphically uninteresting. there were noticably extended pauses as the computer opponent was determining its next move sometimes leading to freezes of longer than 2 minutes that reduced the enjoyment of the game. i am not knowledgeable enough of chess strategy to judge the skill of the computer opponent. i like the idea of the handicapping option at the start of the game

straightforward
Mon, 09 Nov 2009 03:58:28 +0000

This game is fun. I enjoyed playing it becasue it was very challenging. I will go to the website later and play it again.

anonymous
Tue, 10 Nov 2009 03:56:33 +0000

The game was fun. It captured the magic of chess. It would be helpful if when u click on your piece, it highlighted the places you could move

Very good. Thank You
Wed, 11 Nov 2009 03:56:33 +0000

Game is easy and the computer doesn't seem to take long to make a move. I am playing the game in firefox 3.5 browser and there was a slight delay in posting my moves.

the nice game to improve our knowledge. it will be usefull for all

it will be usefull for all person to improve their skill
Fri, 13 Nov 2009 03:58:38 +0000

The game itself isn't very smart, it tends to make arbitrary moves that make no sense. The sound effects are horrible, and sometimes the game will just freeze.

Interesting flash game. I didnt care for the sounds but I liked that you can turn them off

Kinda slow but like other chess games, really fun to play.

This game seems straightforward enough. There are no frills, and most of the moves are clear enough, but I can't figure out how to castle.

I dont know how to play chess, but it looks like a good game!! you should make solitaire and those other ones that come on your computer.

Thu, 19 Nov 2009 04:04:51 +0000

It would be nice to have a ""Force Move"" button to make the thinking stop and force it to make a move. With each move it slowed down more and more, really fast and quick at first.

I really enjoy this chess game. Once I got started I was fully involved in trying to win. This is a great way to practice before you play someone in person.

I enjoyed playing the game.

a good quick game i especially liked the three experience levels.

This chess game was extremely fun and well designed. I enjoyed the level options.

I would like a different set of sounds. The sounds are too mechanical sounding for me right now.

The game played well on some moves and very poorly on others. I like the interface!

Performed very fast and I like the customizations. I didn't understand the sounds used, but was happy I could turn them off.

Fri, 27 Nov 2009 04:00:11 +0000

The game was fun, and the levels of difficulty are about right. The beginner really doesn't require a lot of thought, but is fun all the same. The higher levels take significant time and thought, which is what some are looking for. I enjoyed it as an amateur player.

anonymous
Sat, 28 Nov 2009 04:04:13 +0000

The game was simple to follow. The graphics are pretty low-level for this day in age and the ""moo"" sounds could be eliminated. But it was still a game of chess that anyone can play at anytime.

Thank you!!
Sun, 29 Nov 2009 04:06:15 +0000

Well designed, good opponent skill level.

anonymous
Mon, 30 Nov 2009 04:03:20 +0000

The chess game is very good. It is hard even at beginner level. Does not make dumb moves at all.

The moo for check is a bit strange.
Tue, 01 Dec 2009 03:58:21 +0000

Fun game, but also very difficult.

anonymous
Wed, 02 Dec 2009 04:04:23 +0000

The game is okay. The graphics could be much better to make the game more exciting to play. But for someone who wants to play a few games of chess, it is the perfect solution.

This is a great.
Thu, 03 Dec 2009 04:01:25 +0000

Nice simple game of chess. I did notice though that the game did lock up my web browser for about 3 seconds, but came back shortly after. I like how plain and simple the chess game is. I love this simple chess game!

I love the chess game!
Sat, 05 Dec 2009 04:04:31 +0000

Nice version of chess. I got beat twice, but it's been a while since I played. The retract and restart button didn't work. I wanted to back out of a play but couldn't.

The moo was a little funny for check. Not a sound I expected.

For information, I was using firefox 3.0. I don't know if it would matter with IE, but I use either Firefox or Opera for everything.

All the options makes the game highly customizeable, which is a great thing!
I enjoyed this game!

Hi,

Good things about the site:
==============================
1. The response time is good.
2. The sound for each movement is nice.
3. The page has been designed user friendly.
4. Instructions in the page are good. Example : The Option TAB available in that page, How to reload a new game, etc.

Things needs to be improved
=============================
1. I think none of the TAB options are not working.
2. I am unable to paly for black. By default I am playing for white alone.
3. The game has been designed in such way there its showing no difference between beginner and expert level. Need to fix it.
4. You can change the background design. The current webpage is very dull. You can make it bit attractive.
5. If possible you can add something like chess tutorial or you can design in such way that it can help the players. It will be useful for the people one who learns chess.

Well done chess game.

Pros: I played on Amateur level and appreciated that the computer would make mistakes (so to give me a chance).

Cons: Cow noise for check is annoying and can irritate people if the computer keeps continually checking player. Go for an easier soundbite.

Vince
Tue, 23 Mar 2010 02:03:39 +0000

The game is pretty good.

The colors of the game board should contrast with the background of the page a little more, I think. It looks like the white spaces on the board are transparent. They blend in with the background too much.

The Restart button doesn't appear to work no matter what I try.

Kattie
Wed, 24 Mar 2010 02:02:35 +0000

Oh gosh - a great game. I haven't played in the LONGEST. So, I chose beginner. One thing: it doesn't explain what the "restart" & "retract" buttons do. I can guess the "restart", but how to use the "retract"? Also, how about giving the player the chance to "resign". There were some ups & downs on the game, but when I made a mistake - and I knew it - I had the following options: close the window, do "restart", or play the game through. I think a "resign" button option with maybe some smarmy animation would have been cool.

Oh - the sounds are a bit loud & jarring. Perhaps a low register?

Nonetheless, thanks for the fun!

"Expert" level is very weak. Book, if there is any, seems to have ended at move 3 (game opened 1.e4 c5 2.g3 Nc6 3.Bg2 Qa5?). Program left knight hanging to pawn capture for no particular reason several moves later. I'm rated about 2000 USCF, and I would guess this program might play around 800 USCF.
Appearance and menu options seem fine.

Vine Smith
Fri, 26 Mar 2010 02:11:58 +0000

Well done for chess in a browser. Understands all the moves. Gameplay is solid even for the beginner level. Seems to take quite a while thinking about its next move if the player makes an unconventional move, might want to put a time limit on its thinking time or the player will get bored and move on rather than wait for it to finish considering.

Good work!

Eric
Sat, 27 Mar 2010 02:07:53 +0000

The game can be made better in the terms of graphics and it had a a lot of lad between the moves...as the opponent moved,i couldn't move many times coz it would get hanged up. Otherwise this the best game anyone can ever play.....
and all the best mate.may god bless you success on this project.Take care:-)

anonymous
Sun, 28 Mar 2010 01:59:49 +0000

Overall 7/10.
The beginner level of difficulty is at the appropriate level. It makes intelligent moves in the opening which is a plus.

Pawns shouldn't promote to queens automatically. Sometimes a rook is preferrable in the case of a stalemate and a knight is very unique. It should have some sort of piece selector.

I'd like to see which pieces have been taken off to the left.

I reloaded to play another game, clicked on expert, but it was surely still on beginner. A different selection should automatically make the page refresh. I get an 'error on page' when I click 'retract' or 'restart'. Actually, anytime I click something...

Needing much fixing besides the chess algorithim. Good luck.

Ben Spaeth
Mon, 29 Mar 2010 02:12:44 +0000

Nice. The game is very easy to beat on beginner and amateur level. Those two levels are practically identical. On expert level opponent makes same very absurd an illogically moves. For example when I take my opponents figure and attack another one of his figures instead of to take my figure he ""run away"" with that figure! Sometimes he exchange stronger figure for weaker figure. It is not hard to beat the game on this level neither. Design is simple and nice and sounds are very fanny and amusing.
Good lack with the game!

John Locke
Tue, 30 Mar 2010 02:06:39 +0000

The game froze about 5 moves in - I could still scroll the page and click links but the game window wouldn't do anything.

I tried a second time and the game ran better, but the engine was very bad at chess even on expert level. It made obvious mistakes that I would expect a beginner to avoid.

Christopher Garos
Wed, 31 Mar 2010 01:59:35 +0000

I have a few suggestions, I am not sure that this first on is able to be done but it seems a little slow, after I move my piece the java symbol comes up...
Another suggestion I have is that it shows allowed moves when you select that piece, for example when using the horse, it shows where you are allowed to move to (for armature players)

Shaggy
Thu, 01 Apr 2010 02:01:04 +0000

The games graphics look kind of old-fashioned.
The sounds get really annonying after some time.
The game is called "Flash" allthought it seems to be Java.

I enjoyed playing the game. However, I was disappointed that despite the check-box, you could not turn off the sounds. Also, it was difficult to tell the king and queen apart. I played the first half thinking they were the opposite of what they turned out to be.

A nice simple chess game, computer does take a while to think about it's move at times.

Could pay more, but the description required is short, so it's fair.
Wed, 18 Apr 2012 23:52:05 +0400

good game with sharp loading times, the colours make the pieces easy to see and allow the user to plan ahead. The sounds are a bit counter productive however these are easily turned off, overall a good internet chess game.

good hit, but should be worth more, at least $0.10
Thu, 19 Apr 2012 01:27:19 +0400

I am not a very good chess player but I enjoyed playing this one. It loaded quickly and cleanly, was easy to use. Very nice.

I think hints or a help mode for people like me would be great.
Thu, 19 Apr 2012 03:02:03 +0400

The game is pretty good for a simple flash game, although it made a few trades that were uneven all and all it was good. It is really cool because it?s hard to find a good chess game online, which is free. Its worth playing and the game play is really smooth.

anonymous
Thu, 19 Apr 2012 04:05:46 +0400

This is a well done game! It works well, and I enjoy the odds option. Pace of play is good, and I like the fact that it highlights the move made by the computer.

anonymous
Thu, 19 Apr 2012 05:01:12 +0400

it's awesome. it could use slightly better graphics or a tip button or something.

it was fun!
Thu, 19 Apr 2012 06:36:19 +0400

It was actually a pretty good online chess game. It was very simple but effective. I haven't play chess in a long time and I lost but I still enjoyed the game. I was kind of hoping to find a button or something so that for beginners would have a ""hint"" in case someone was new to the game, but still for a one player game it was good. The other issue was the java would sometimes take a bit longer to load but I'm not sure if it was because the computer was ""thinking"" about it's move or if it was just a java thing.
