Mobile Chess

Mobile Chess

A very nice chess app that works with all screen sizes. Unlike Cellufun Chess board isn’t cut off at the bottom on smaller screens.  It has three levels, handicaps, retract (undo) move, optional background usic and you can play against the computer or with a friend (offline, sharing the phone)

It takes a while to start on the i776, i465 and similar iDEN phones but once it’s running gameplay is quick. Startup on the Rambler only takes a few seconds.

The app “MobileChess” (328 KB) is ready to download or send to your phone as filename:”MobileChess”.

    I didn’t like the fact that the last row is missing, because if your under attack o the last line you can see what’s on the line is under attack. Clearly it was not made for this phone
