wins every time. Computer plays the same moves each game. Not very clever... User plays white, bot plays black

love it. i spent so much time with it decembre last year and im happy to plays it again :3

Give difficulty options pls.

Couldn't make it...

Even though I am not really huge fan of chess, I would say the design and ai for the game it pretty good for those who like it. The only really issue is that look of it doesn't really stand out.
