I admit to being impressed by this. I only wish there was sound. I couldn't get that too interested in this, though. It's mostly because I don't know how to play chess. I am not interested to learning how to, either. People who are should like this a lot more.
The graphics are quite nice. It looks just like an actual chessboard. Most people should be familiar with them by now. I'm too lazy to look at the tutorial. It just isn't for me.
